…. youthengage in peer-based, self-directedlearningonline…...
….in interest-drivenparticipation, adults have an importantrole to play. Youthusingnew media oftenlearn from their peers, not teachers or adults. ……… the21st century, educationinstitutionsneed to keep pace withthe rapid changesintroduced by digital media.
Herethey hang around… and learn
Interest driven ----- friendshipdriven
…..By itsimmediacy and breadthofinformation,the digital world lowersbarriers to self-directedlearning…. They ”geekout” … receive feedback from ”expert peers”…..
New media allow for a degreeoffreedom and autonomyfor youththat is less apparent in a classroom setting. Youthrespectoneanother’sauthority online, and theyareoften more motivated to learn from peers than from adults.

Altså: Nye medier gir de unge
merfrihet og autonomi enn skolen.
De unge respekterer
hverandres autoritet og de er ofte
mer motiverte til å lære fra
venner/kontakter enn fravoksne.
Virksomheten er ofte mer
eksperimenterende enn det de
opplever i klasserommet.
