The Role of After-School Digital Media Clubs in Closing Participation Gaps and Expanding Social Networks

2020-04-11T15:55:30+00:00April 6th, 2020|Tags: , , |

This article considers how after-school digital media clubs, as an example of informal learning, can provide meaningful opportunities for youth to participate in the creation of interest-driven learning ecologies through media production. Ethnographic research was conducted in two after-school digital media clubs at a large, ethnically diverse, low income public high school over the course of an academic year. The after-school clubs provided students with opportunities to develop digital literacies that could be leveraged for the acquisition of cultural and social capital.  Although participation in the clubs expanded students’ offline social networks, restrictive school policies blocked access to social media and [...]

Measuring experiences of interest-related pursuits in connected learning

2020-04-11T15:36:53+00:00April 2nd, 2020|Tags: , , , |

This paper describes an effort to develop a survey instrument capable of measuring important aspects of adolescents’ experiences of interest-related pursuits that are supported by technology. The measure focuses on youths’ experiences of connected learning (Ito et al. in Connected learning: an agenda for research and design. Digital Media and Learning Research Hub, Irvine, 2013), an emerging model of learning across settings supported by digital media. Specifically, the instrument aims to measure the depth with which youth are able to engage in an interest-related pursuit, the level of support and encouragement they receive from peers, and the degree to which their pursuit involves performance [...]

Collaborating and Connecting, the emergence of the sharing economy

2020-04-11T15:21:50+00:00March 26th, 2020|Tags: , , , |

This book was published by Reisch & Thogersen in the UK. While sharing is a longstanding form of exchange, new forms of sharing have emerged. What is innovative about today’s sharing is that it is a market form in which strangers—rather than kin and communities—exchange goods and services. The contemporary sharing economy creates new ways of provisioning goods and services and opportunities for what we have called connected consumption, relying on peer-to-peer relationships rather than existing market actors to mediate exchanges. In this book chapter by the Connected Learning Alliance, the authors suggest that participation in the sharing economy is motivated [...]
