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.The John D. and Catherine T.

Das Netz ist eine Brutstätte für mediale Phänomene wie etwa digitale Realitäten, Avatars, Memes, Selfies, Transmedia Storytelling, Shitstorms, Gamification, Ultra Fandom, Big Data oder hybride Medienformen, die direkten Einfluss auf Gesellschaft, Kultur und Wirtschaft haben. Doch welche Auswirkungen hat die Netzkultur auf unsere tagtägliche Wahrnehmung von Kommunikation, Arbeitsbedingungen, sozialen Beziehungen, Konsumprodukten und ästhetischen Entwürfen? Dieser Band versammelt grundlegende Annäherungen an die medialen Ausformungen digitaler Kulturen und ermöglicht Studierenden und Lehrenden - aber auch Praktiker_innen - verschiedener Disziplinen, diese zu überdenken, weiterzuspinnen und zu hinterfragen. Mit Beiträgen u.a. von Henry Jenkins, Ramón Reichert, Judith Ackermann, Jan-Hinrik Schmidt, Stephan Sonnenburg und Roman Rackwitz.

Der Band versammelt Beiträge zum Thema der gegenwärtigen „digitalen“ Propaganda, wie sie im Kontext des Populismus eine besondere Rolle spielt. Sie wird als politisch-mediales Phänomen analysiert und als gesellschaftlich-kommunikatives Herausforderung: dies hinsichtlich der Sorge vor der einseitigen Beeinflussung einer neuen, fragmentierten „Masse“ im Netz sowie um die für medienvermittelte Demokratien fundamentale Möglichkeit des vertrauensvollen Austausches von Informationen und Meinungen auf Basis diskursethischer Prinzipien.

From fansubbing, fan-generated translation, to user-generated translation, from amateur translation to social translation, non-professional subtitling has come a long way since its humble beginning in the 1980s. The prevailing technological affordance enables and mobilises the digital generation to turn subtitling into a method of self-expression and mediation, and their activities have made translation a more social and visible activity than ever before. This volume provides a comprehensive review of the current state of play of this user-generated subtitling phenomenon. It includes projects and research focusing on various aspects of non-professional subtitling, including the communities at work, the agents at play, the production conditions and the products. The perspectives in the book explore the role played by the agents involved in the emerging subtitling networks worldwide, and their impact on the communities is also discussed, based on empirical data generated from observations on active fansubbing communities. The collection demonstrates, from various viewpoints, the ways in which non-professional subtitling connects languages, cultures and communities in a global setting.

Today, interest in networks is growing by leaps and bounds, in both scientific discourse and popular culture. Networks are thought to be everywhere – from the architecture of our brains to global transportation systems. And networks are especially ubiquitous in the social world: they provide us with social support, account for the emergence of new trends and markets, and foster social protest, among other functions. Besides, who among us is not familiar with Facebook, Twitter, or, for that matter, World of Warcraft, among the myriad emerging forms of network-based virtual social interaction? It is common to think of networks simply in structural terms – the architecture of connections among objects, or the circuitry of a system. But social networks in particular are thoroughly interwoven with cultural things, in the form of tastes, norms, cultural products, styles of communication, and much more. What exactly flows through the circuitry of social networks? How are people's identities and cultural practices shaped by network structures? And, conversely, how do people's identities, their beliefs about the social world, and the kinds of messages they send affect the network structures they create? This book is designed to help readers think about how and when culture and social networks systematically penetrate one another, helping to shape each other in significant ways.
