Education Experiment Ends

[Sept] 23, 2011
Commentary by Stephen Downes

The question is enticing: "Can educators in the 21st Century be content experts, but media illiterate  and still be relevant?" And ther's a good discussion of the importance of media literacy that follows, with clips from the new media literacies and the meaning of literacy in the 21st century. But for all that, do we have a handle on what media literacy is, yet? I don't think we do - it's not just about not believing the experts (though it's certainly that) but also the wider set of communicative capacities needed in a dynamic multimedia environment. Ah, but who listens to me on this?
