What does distributed mentoring look like in fan fiction communities, and what can it tell us about open learning?
On Monday, May 4 from 11am-noon PT (2-3 pm ET) host, Katie Davis, and her colleagues from the University of Washington discussed their in-depth, ethnographic research on fan faction communities and open learning. Young people worldwide are participating in ever-increasing numbers in online fan communities. Far from shallow repositories of pop culture, growing evidence indicates that sophisticated informal learning is taking place in these communities.
