New Media Literacies
Play - the capacity to experiment with
one’s surroundings as a form of
problem-solving
Performance - the ability to adopt
alternative identities for the purpose of
improvisation and discovery
Simulation - the ability to interpret and
construct dynamic models of real-world
processes
Appropriation - the ability to meaningfully
sample and remix media content
Multitasking - the ability to scan one’s
environment and shift focus as needed
to salient details
Distributed Cognition - the ability to
interact meaningfully with tools that
expand mental capacities
Collective Intelligence - the ability to pool
knowledge and compare notes with
others toward a common goal
Judgment - the ability to evaluate the
reliability and credibility of different
information sources
Transmedia Navigation - the ability to follow
the flow of stories and information across
multiple modalities
Networking - the ability to search for,
synthesize, and disseminate information
Negotiation - the ability to travel across
diverse communities, discerning and
respecting multiple perspectives, and
grasping and following alternative norms
Visualization - the ability to interpret and
create data representations for the
purposes of expressing ideas, finding
patterns, and identifying trends

Way to College
The Global Challenge Award
Global Challenge Goals



Assist pre-college students in self-directed
learning of science, technology, engineering
and mathematics
Use game- and simulation-based guidance
to understand the complex nature of global
systems
Use the tools of computational science,
simulation, and telecommunications
