Second Life ... revisiting media literacy

Second Life ... revisiting media literacy is a discussion led by Marty Snowpaw & chaired by Sheila Yoshikawa (me) on Thurs 14 May 2009, 12noon - 1pm SL Time on Infolit iSchool
Marty introduces the topic "At a recent New Media Literacy (NML) conference, Henry Jenkins said that we are '...not teaching code but teaching culture.'" A key element is "taking the media that children loved and were already learning from and bringing it into the classroom."
What does this mean for teaching in SL? Bring your views!
Pic shows me and Marty discussing the session, a couple of weeks ago.

The blog of Sheila Yoshikawa on her adventures in Second Life. This may be very thrilling. Or possibly not.
