Abstract: Is there a connection between increased use of digital media and changing patterns of political participation? This study tests how use of online media for different purposes (social interaction, creative expression, online news use, social media news use) is related to three types of political participation. It examines whether mobilizing effects are partly indirect due to different understandings of citizenship (dutiful, optional, individual, collective) that may be fostered by digital media use. The study is based on a survey of a sample of the Danish population (n=1322), including data from two online survey waves and a smartphone-based media diary that documents respondents’ social media use. Results indicate support for a new pathway to participation, but the relationship depends on whether citizens are socialized in a digital media environment.

Abstract: This study sought to explore the relationship between science, performance, and audience in a theatrical production of RE:Design, A Dramatisation of the Correspondence of Charles Darwin and Asa Gray by Craig Baxter. A focus group and supplementary survey were conducted to learn what audience members thought they had received from attending the performance. Results suggest that they gained a greater understanding of both the historical and philosophical context of these scientists and their work, they felt they benefited from the narrative format of the performance, and they gained insight into the characters as humans, not just scientists. When asked to speculate on the point of the performance, answers varied. In addition, they disagreed on the value and/or success of some of the theatrical choices. This research suggests that the primary gain for the audience was an understanding of the cultural context within which the science was carried out. This suggestion opens up opportunities for future research on science performances, and also has implications for the practice of science education and public communication of science.

Abstract: A number of scholars are exploring the district context in which schools are embedded. These studies suggest the importance of the district office as a support or constraint to the work of schools and offer strategies for building relations between sites and districts. While this is an important task what is frequently overlooked is that organizational change efforts are often socially constructed. Therefore, prior to engaging change strategies an analysis of social networks may serve to determine the appropriate change effort. This case study uses Social Network Analysis and interviews to explore the underlying knowledge and communication patterns in a network of district and site leaders in a district poised to enact significant change. Results indicate a centralized structure that may limit the exchange of complex information.

Abstract: The aim of this study was to investigate and explicitly compare children’s understanding of television advertising with their understanding of brand placement in films and video games, licensed products, programme sponsorship and advertising on the internet. We interviewed 134 7 and 10 year old children about the nature of television advertisements and examples of non-spot advertising, using open-ended questions and pictorial prompts (following Owen, Auty & Lewis, 2007). Children demonstrated a significantly more sophisticated understanding of television advertising in comparison to all five examples of non-spot advertising. Children appear to have very limited knowledge of what these alternative marketing tactics involve and consequently lack the cognitive skills to critically evaluate them. Non-spot advertising appears to pose a new challenge for children.
