Abstract

This paper discusses the design and implementation of a participatory culture pedagogy in the context of a pilot after-school program at LAUSD's Robert F. Kennedy Community Schools. Ethnographic fieldnotes, instructor and student reflections, photographs, video recordings, and student work illustrate the program's culture of participatory learning, characterized by motivation and engagement, creativity, relevance, co-learning, and ecological learning. The program also supported participants' acquisition of digital literacy skills, new media literacies, and social and emotional learning competencies. This experience suggests that relationship-building is integral and foundational to establishing citizenship, both online and offline. (Contains 1 table and 2 footnotes.)
