MIT's Project New Media Literacies Conference: Learning in a Participatory Culture

Announcing our Spring conference:
Learning in a Participatory Culture

At NML's May 2nd conference, we will share our new web-based learning environment, the Learning Library, and host a series of conversations and workshops about the integration and implementation of the new media literacies across disciplines. Workshops include "The Complexities of Copyright: Shepard Fairey v. the AP," "Mapping in Participatory Culture: Boundaries," "Using Wikipedia in the Classroom" and many others. Henry Jenkins' closing remarks will address the future of NML and participatory democracy.

Panelists at this conference will include members of the NML team, educators who have been working with NML materials in the field, and educational researchers. The conference is designed to engage anyone with an interest in the future of education, especially high school teachers and after school coordinators. The format itself will be participatory - we hope that attendees will join the conversation, and leave the conference equipped with new ideas and strategies.

Learning in a Participatory Culture will take place at MIT, Cambridge MA, from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm.
Registration for this one-day conference is $35.00, breakfast and lunch included.

Registration is now open. Please complete the Online Registration to pay. To choose your workshops, please download the Workshop Sign-up Form (PDF | Word) and submit to

Great job the other night.

Would you have any interest in broadcasting any of this conference. We could use the Classroom 2.0 Elluminate room if you wanted to.

Hi Steve,

Great idea! What would we have to do to set that up for the conference?
I'll contact you by email. It's relatively easy.
Looking forward to attending, sounds like a great conference.
Look forward to meeting you Beth -- it should be a fun and interactive day with lots of themes to choose from. Let me know if you have any questions. Best, Erin
Nellie Deutsch has been exploring the implementation of Education Technology into the classroom as part of the trend in new media learning.

Looking forward to participating on Saturday and meeting other participants and classroom 2.0 members
Look forward to meeting you Lindsey -- it should be a fun day ;-)
