Participatory Culture

on April 9, 2009

Henry Jenkins writings has influenced my class in both content and even the recent name change. He has writen a new article on his <a href=”“>blog, entitled Critical Information Studies For a Participatory Culture (Part One)

“A participatory culture is a culture with relatively low barriers to artistic expression and civic engagement, strong support for creating and sharing one’s creations, and some type of informal mentorship whereby what is known by the most experienced is passed along to novices. A participatory culture is also one in which members believe their contributions matter, and feel some degree of social connection with one another. Participatory culture shifts the focus of literacy from one of individual expression to community involvement.”

In this class we mostly talk about education, but if you read this article it Web 2.0 also relates to businesses and our own lives. We have all changed from consumers to producers.
