ELI Podcast: What Wikipedia Can Teach Us About the New Media Literacies

This 73 minute podcast features the 4th Annual Robert C. Heterick Jr. Lecture, given by Henry Jenkins, Director of the Comparative Media Studies Program at MIT. The lecture is entitled, "What Wikipedia Can Teach Us About the New Media Literacies".

Emblematic of the new participatory cultures and the emerging practices of collective intelligence, Wikipedia has drawn fire from academic institutions and traditional gatekeepers. Using segments from a forthcoming documentary about the Wikipedia movement produced by MIT's Project NML, this session will discuss how educators might use Wikipedia to introduce students to the ways that new forms of cultural production and knowledge sharing are reshaping the research process.
