Title: Where they live: Community media centers as hubs for building technological literacy, media literacy, and active citizenship
Lead Author: Arndt, Angela E.
Abstract: Education is becoming a 24/7 experience driven by media experiences and technological exploration. The challenge is to find innovative ways to develop technological literacy, media literacy, and active citizenship in non-traditional educational systems. Community media organizations are each unique possessing talents, strengths, and ingenuity to reach people where they live by providing learning opportunities across the lifespan and across the socio-economic spectrum in communities around the world. In these centers, access exists for education in computing, media literacy, academic content, creative expression, workforce preparedness, or to learn means of affecting social change. Research will show how developing these organizations can create important hubs connecting people with educational systems, as well as serving to develop innovative technologies for the public good. Technological, creative, social, economic, and organizational development disciplines all have a stake in community media as providers of the environment, equipment, and education for gaining the skills and literacies needed in the 21st century. By building capacity in these valuable organizations, new opportunities will emerge for technological, educational, and social innovation including strengthened learning of desired skills and literacies, utilization of newly developed digital arts teaching and learning practices, and increases in equitable access to the public media discourse.
