IP4: An Exploration of Media Convergence and its Impact on Education
Below is a mind map of Henry Jenkins' 5 Processes of Media Convergence. Below that is a short video unpacking that map and drawing attention to some of the differences and commonalities behind the five processes. I believe understanding these differing influences will help educators to improve their media literacy and understand the impacts of media convergence. Not all convergence is a problem nor is it a boon. Whether or not media convergence serves our students of any age depends on the ability of
educators to think critically about how and what they are teaching enables success for students, whatever their goals may be.
