Don’t miss a reunion of the researchers who brought you Hanging Out Messing Around and Geeking Out, reflecting on developments and new research in the decade since the Digital Youth Project began its research. The Digital Youth Project was a unique interdisciplinary collaboration that included 25 researchers and 22 case ethnographic case studies of youth new media practices during the heyday of MySpace and LiveJournal and when machimima and YouTube were just being vaulted into mainstream visibility. Mimi Ito will moderate a discussion with former Digital Youth researchers Rachel Cody, Becky Herr, Heather Horst, C.J. Pascoe, Christo Sims, and Lisa Tripp. How have youth living and learning online changed in the decade since the Digital Youth Project began it’s investigation? How have researchers who collaborated on this project extended this earlier research and found new settings for investigation and application?  This is an opportunity to trace the lasting influence of collaborative research and project based learning as emerging researchers develop as scholars, innovators, and change agents. Hear about Cody’s study of Harry Potter fans on Ravelry. com; Sims’ application of HOMAGO insights in undergraduate education and design interventions; Herr’s Maker-Ed workshops with LA Makerspace; Horst’s international work on transmedia literacy; Pascoe’s study of GLBTQ coming of age stories across generations; and Tripp’s innovations in film and digital arts education at in higher education.
