MIT researcher Deb Roy wanted to understand how his infant son learned language -- so he wired up his house with videocameras to catch every moment (with exceptions) of his son's life, then parsed 90,000 hours of home video to watch "gaaaa" slowly turn into "water." Astonishing, data-rich research with deep implications for how we learn. Deb Roy studies how children learn language, and designs machines that learn to communicate in human-like ways. On sabbatical from MIT Media Lab, he's working with the AI company Bluefin Labs. A quiz, thought provoking question, and links for further study are provided to create a lesson around the 20-minute video. Educators may use the platform to easily "Flip" or create their own lesson for use with their students of any age or level.

Confronting the Challenges of Participatory Culture

Rating
0.0 stars

Many teens today who use the Internet are actively involved in participatory cultures—joining online communities (Facebook, message boards, game clans), producing creative work in new forms (digital sampling, modding, fan videomaking, fan fiction), working in teams to complete tasks and develop new knowledge (as in Wikipedia), and shaping the flow of media (as in blogging or podcasting). A growing body of scholarship suggests potential benefits of these activities, including opportunities for peer-to-peer learning, development of skills useful in the modern workplace, and a more empowered conception of citizenship. Some argue that young people pick up these key skills and competencies on their own by interacting with popular culture; but the problems of unequal access, lack of media transparency, and the breakdown of traditional forms of socialization and professional training suggest a role for policy and pedagogical intervention. This report aims to shift the conversation about the "digital divide" from questions about access to technology to questions about access to opportunities for involvement in participatory culture and how to provide all young people with the chance to develop the cultural competencies and social skills needed. Fostering these skills, the authors argue, requires a systemic approach to media education; schools, afterschool programs, and parents all have distinctive roles to play.

Academic artist Enrique Legaspi grew up singing, skateboarding, and creating. As a teacher, one day he realized, "I'm doing everything I can, I'm staying up late, but I'm producing the same results. What's going on?" Now that he's begun to modify and adapt his teaching to his students' interests, Enrique's students are creating, curating and sharing their work using video and social media -- and it's made all the difference.

The information revolution of the 21st century is as significant and transformative as the industrial revolution of the 19th century. In this unit, students – and by proxy their families – will learn about the challenges of our current information landscape and how to navigate them. This unit is split into four modules. These modules can be done sequentially or stand on their own, depending on students’ needs and teachers’ timeframes. In this module (1 of 4), students analyze their own use of online social media platforms and learn how filter bubbles and confirmation bias shape the content of their media environment.

In order to get the most out of a piece of literature, students must empathize with the characters, try to understand what motivates the main characters, and how those characters perceive of and interact with their world. The way that our students perceive of and interact with their world is changing all the time. At this point in history, however, digital communication the key. Therefore, as teachers, if we can bring social media into the realm of literature, we have a better chance of engaging the students and getting them to see what lies within the protagonists on the page. This project has the student create a Facebook page for a character in the story, allowing each student to embody that character and interact with others from within that text or intertextually.
