Students using participatory media

Henry Jenkins, co-director of MIT's Comparative Media Studies Program, is working on a paper to identify the core social skills and cultural competencies young people need in order to become full participants in the cultural, political, economic, and social life of the 21st century. He reviews the current research surrounding participatory culture and examines how teachers deploy these technologies through schools. Here is an interview with Henry and Danah Boyd.
