Education remix: New media, literacies, and the emerging digital geographies

By Lalitha Vasudevan

Abstract

This article explores instances of youth educating themselves beyond the boundaries of school through engagement with and production of \u27digital geographies\u27, or the emerging landscapes that are being produced through the confluence of new communicative practices and available media and technologies.   A framework of digital geographies, which is grounded in theories of spatiality, literacies, and multimodality, is used to analyze the social media practices and multimedia artifacts produced by two court-involved youth, who are part of an ongoing, multi-year ethnography of an alternative to incarceration program. Attention to digital geographies, and attendant communicative practices, can yield important insights about education beyond the school walls. The conclusion addresses the implications of this research for meaningful educational contexts for adolescents’ literacies and how learning might be conceptualized and designed within school
