This unit will explore how the changing media landscape has impacted on youth. It will focus on various new media literacies (e.g. appropriation, judgement, and networking) as ways of learning, consuming and producing in today's media environment. These new media literacies will be applied to various youth media case studies which may include the ethics of social networking, judgement and Wikipedia, video gaming and play, and multitasking and transmedia navigation.
