Digital Literacy Intro: 1. Media Literacy- how we respond (consciouslyand unconsciously) to and accurately think about the messages the media and their sponsors send us. 2. Commonculture - shared experiences that bind society together (EX: Sandy Hook, 9/11, Super Bowl). This creates a passive population where we don’t question what happened a. Water cooler culture - If you don't see/ didn't know about the thing, then you are left out so you watch it in order to not be left out 3. Digital information literacy - passive and active consumption about super tailored messages. It’s much more interactive but devalues and fragments common culture 4. Spoiler culture - instead of interacting face-to-face, people retreat to the solude of the internet during their breaks, choosing who to interact with and creating a bubble around them. 5. Gatekeeping - What filters the news around us; what/ who decideswhat news we receive 6. Post-narrative world - Corporations have a lot of power over individual choices and “trick” them into thinking they are choosing the media they consume. This means that “Truth” is even harder to distinguish (especially among an informed electorate) because it is hidden in personal agendas, long algorithms, and opinions on social media. 7. An historical perspective -how things were in that space, during that time. 8. A cultural perspective - how values and ideals are showed in culture. How do humans react to social norms and “rules” that make up a society? EX: its a norm to not wear black every day. It’s a rule to not pick your friend’s nose. 9. A critical perspective- how fast social change can put certain groups of people at a social/economic disadvantage Big ideasfor the intro: 1. Digital literacy means that the world is a group of individuals in their own bubble. The platform doesn't matter as much, but the information feed. EX: television is both a group and solitary thing because you can watch the same movie and show with a group of people (online or in real life) or you can watch it by yourself, streaming on a tablet. 2. We consume media in a “peak-a-boo” fashion where we pop in and pop out 3. The internet only gets us a lower cast t, truth. We can no longer rely on it as 100% true, but one perceived truth. Think wikipedia; it's a good starting spot, but not the best/most accurate source. 4. Digital information no longer HAS to flow through a gatekeeper, and it probably hasn't. 5. We must know the 3 perspectives to accurately analyze how technology has changed our identity.
