People Who Live in Internet (Netizen) Should have to see this Video

The Netizens:

I wanna to discuss about the Netizen: so the term is being used extensively in postmodern society , therefore the postmodern society is obsessed with internet whether it is Wii, Face book , Twitter or other social sites. the postmodern society is tremendously manipulating their life over the internet so during the time of Shopping and even in dining choices, although the people became much meaningless so they engage in social networking sites and activities. These social networking sites sometime abuse and exploit their own life inadvertently, the postmodern communities can create individual public profiles, interact with real-life friends, and meet other people based on shared interests.

When the people go out whether with family, friends or if they are in tour the most important element is there should be the presence and availability of Wifi, actually whether doesnt have Wifi there it should be a big matter so that the wifi became the central part of postmodern human such as the food , drinks and breathing oxygen, meanwhile l there’s access to WiFi, the people will be more enjoyable, if it is not they may feel depression , someone would have felt the hypretension, so if there is wifi , people can take pictures of what they do, what they eat, and what they purchase, even someone is ready to share their bed room , girl friends , partners affection gesture, and then they can handily and freely upload these pictures onto their beloved social networks in order to share with their friends. In this case, “Do they have WiFi?” has become the most commonly asked question for people now. If there is no WiFi available for some places and areas may be neglected , lots of people will get perturbed and upset about this unavailability. Luckily, mobile broadband has become a remedy for those who are addicted to their phones and social media.

Today, this kind of question and obsessive fear is a real phenomenon rather than nationaly and identity , it has invaded the whole younger generation as the increasing popularity of smartphones beyond the bounders and nationalities , smart phone and other devices , particularly the abundance of mobile apps, and games. Moreover, the facebook and other social sites might be shut down for half hour it would be a big economical loos, so the digital media environment is rapidly evolving, driven by the multiplication of devices people use to consume content both at home, at work and on the go. Consequently, a growing number of people are likely to access a wide variety of digital content across a multitude of devices on a daily basis. With smartphones, tablets and other connected devices, people have become digital omnivores – not just because of the media they consume, but also in how they consume it.

Technology surrounds us. We are always exposed to it some way or another. There is no escape from it, unless you were cast upon a desert isle. We were the global Citizens now we became Netizens; beyond the super diversity and multyculturalism we may have been using Digital Omnivores s to the technological advance… Are you a digital NetiZen ?HAHAHAHAHAHAH .

New kinds of Cultural Memes Discussion in Cultural Style

New kinds of Cultural Memes Discussion in Cultural Style

The Fascinated discussion about the new kinds of cultural memes such as Gangnam Style, this Psy’s song extensively is being seen , discussed beyond the language barrier and   across the world , the in my recent discussion  I’m particularly interested in memes as an emerging information literacy and their study is important for comprehending the way in which information flows through systems. Dae Ryun Chang wrote that one of reasons why Gangnam Style has taken off is that “the song intentionally lacked a copyright so that people would be encouraged to create their own online parodies, in essence their own ‘XYZ Style’”. It’s not quite factual (as argued elsewhere) that the song ‘lacked’ a copyright, but it is certainly clear that Psy has encouraged the remix and reuse of the song which has led to some incredible statistics (such as being the first video to reach 1 billion views). And, besides the ability to reuse/remix, the song is just downright catchy.

There have been hundreds of great remixes. Bill Nye Science Style, Minecraft Style, Baby Gangnam, and the Gangnam Halloween Lightshow rank among my favorites. But when I have seen lot of version of Gangnam style even by schools children, THAT’S where I think this gets so very relevant and exciting. Students and teachers at Okanagan Missionary Secondary (Kelowna, BC) recently put together this lip-sync version of the song. The video has achieved around 33,000 hits, and created a great buzz at the school.

The video was shot over a two week period at various locations around the school. Once all the post production work was completed, the school held a ‘spirit assembly’ last Thursday and the reception was astounding. Not only was the crowd entertained, laughing and cheering to the on screen antics, but for the rest of the day students could be heard excitedly talking about it or mimicking dance moves.

Creating such joyful events at school are vitally important for an overall healthy learning environment. Combine this with complex, project-based work that seamlessly integrates new literacies through media development and your institution has just made great strides toward the development and modelling of a positive digital footprint (for the institution and for the individuals involved). And these sorts of activities can go a long way to ease some of unwarranted fears regarding social media felt amongst parents, teachers, administrators and students.

And the Grade 11 French immersion students at Holy Trinity Catholic High School (from the Ottawa Catholic School Board) have taken the Gangnam craze even further by creating a French version of the song. Even if you are not a French speaker, you will quickly notice the creative effort that has gone into this parody. That, and the students look like they are having so much fun!

These last two examples demonstrate the successful intersection of emerging media and school learning. It can also be seen as an example of what Thomas and Brown describe as “The New Culture of Learning“.

The new culture of learning actually comprises two elements. The first is a massive information network that provides almost unlimited access and resources to learn about anything. The second is a bounded and structured environment that allows for unlimited agency to build and experiment with things within those boundaries.

So how is your educational institution embracing this new culture of learning? Or, how are you as a teacher, administrator, or learner creating opportunities to critically discuss and/or participate in these new media environments? I’d love to hear from you
