Traditional media literacy models are mostly left-brained, inherited from the legacy of alphabetic literacy, the Gutenberg press revolution, and industrial mass media production. New digital media radically alter the environment: their nonlinear, multisensory, field-like properties are more right-brain oriented. Consequently, rather than focus exclusively on deconstructing the products of design objects (such as an advertisement «text»), digital learning should respond to the design of the system itself, including cultural and cognitive bias.
Mediacology proposes a design-for-pattern approach called «media permaculture», which restructures media literacy to be in sync with new media practices connected with sustainability and the perceptual functions of the right brain hemisphere. In the same way that permaculture approaches gardening by establishing the natural parameters of its ecological niche, media permaculture explores the individual’s «mediacological niche» in the context of knowledge communities. By applying bioregional thinking to the symbolic order, media permaculture redresses the standard one-size-fits-all literacy model by taking into account diverse cognitive strategies and emerging convergence media practices. Antonio López applies a practical knowledge of alternative media, cross-cultural communication, and ecology to build a meaningful theory of media education.

From the Back Cover:

Antonio López is devoted to opening the minds of young people to the perils and possibilities of our multimedia world. His work on media permaculture, influenced equally by Native American concepts and Marshall McLuhan, opens up the holistic and pedagogical possibilities of the new peer-to-peer networks that are transforming culture and society." -Erik Davis, Author of The Visionary State and Techgnosis

About the Author:

The Author: Seeded by his experience as an old-school punk zine publisher, Antonio López has cultivated a career in grassroots community media activism, citizen journalism, media education, and blogging. His essays about media and culture are featured in numerous newspapers, magazines, and book anthologies, most recently in the MacArthur Foundation’s series Digital Learning in the Twenty-first Century. López was the content provider for a groundbreaking Spanish-language media and health CD-ROM, Medios y Remedios, and designed a multicultural media literacy curriculum, «Merchants of Culture». He lectures, writes, and trains in outreach, media production, and digital media literacy throughout the world. His website is http://mediacology.com.
