Mimi Ito on Learning in Social Media Spaces (Big Thinkers Series)

And on the flip side, why do we assume that schools can't have a spirit of entertainment and play as part of what they're doing? Mimi: Last year I wrapped up a three-year study with a large team of researchers where we were looking at a lot of different examples of kids' new-media practice, ranging from sort of everyday hanging-out behavior on sites like Myspace and Facebook with text messaging, IM to what we were calling more "geeked-out" kinds of participation, like making YouTube videos, remixing videos, creating podcasts, engaging in fan fiction, and other forms of fan production.

Mimi: I think our most important top-level finding was that there was tremendous diversity in what kids were doing online and what kids were learning online.

Definition Of Digital Citzenship

Which begs the question: what is digital citizenship? Well, first citizenship, which is formally defined as “the quality of an individual’s response to membership in a community.” This makes citizenship far more complex than a simple legal matter, but rather one that consists of self-knowledge, interaction, and intimate knowledge of a place, its people, and its cultural history. So digital citizenship is nearly the same thing–“the quality of a response to membership in a digital community” would be a good first crack at the definition. But that leaves out the idea of content itself, which leads us to a pretty good definition for educators: “The quality of habits, actions, and consumption patterns that impact the ecology of digital content and communities.”
