Youth and Digital Culture (EDGU1002)

Do you listen to music, follow TV shows, go to live events, send text messages, spend a great deal of time online or simply immerse yourself in arts, theatre or video gaming?

Youth and Digital Culture (EDGU1002) offers you the chance to explore your digital culture using innovative and exciting ways as part of this elective. As well as guest international and local speakers, the unit involves attending a live participatory event, producing your own digital movie (with workshops for even beginner digital movie novices) and tutorials using handheld devices. We will explore what it means to understand culture as a learner and a participant, from fanzines to viral video, twitter to social action causes and the history of music and remix.
