This book aims to introduce do-it-yourself-DIY-media to educators and caregivers who are aware that young people are doing a lot of 'digital media' work on a day-by-day basis and who would like to know more about what this work involves. Its audience includes teacher educators, in-service teachers and teachers in training, educators involved in professional development and after-school programs, librarians, parents, and other caregivers who want a better understanding than they currently have of what many young people are doing with digital media. The following chapters explore what is involved in creating media-and learning how to create media-from the standpoint of participating in a range of DIY media practices, such as podcasting, music remixing, creating flash animations, making machinima movies, and so on.
