Erin Reilly creator of Zoey’s Room (a website to teach middle school girls science and technology) and now the director of the New Media Literacy center at MIT (for which Henry Jenkins is the principal investigator) walked me through their work-in-progress library of interactive tutorials on digital media skills for teens.
They are actually pretty good for adults too! Their modules are based on Henry Jenkin’s eleven skills that are needed in the new media world (see below). How would you rate yourself with these skills? Do you think these are the right skills.
