Civic Media Project

Civic media is the practice of using media and technology to promote a collective good. The Civic Media Project (CMP) "is a collection of short case studies from scholars and practitioners from all over the world that range from the descriptive to the analytical, from the single tool to the national program, from the enthusiastic to the critical." These case studies are written by scholars across a number of fields, including journalism, digital media, political science, and education. Case studies highlight civic media projects in four Sections: Play + Creativity; Systems + Designs; Learning + Engagement; and Community + Action. Highlighted projects include Presenting our Perspectives on Philly Youth News (POPPYN), a youth- produced TV News show and Aliens on Campus, an Alternative Reality Game at the University of Western Cape designed to address gaps in digital literacy education. Many of these projects focus on youth empowerment and education, so CMP may especially be of interest to youth workers and educators in alternative or out-of-school settings.
