Video Blogging and Activism

[blip.tv ?posts_id=379138&dest=15981]

I spoke with Ryanne Hodson about how video blogging can be a form of activism. A particular video blog can certainly raise awareness about specific issues. But Ryanne also talked about how teaching others to video blog is also a form of activism in that it widens the number of voices who can bring their own perspectives to an issue. She talked about how video blogging can be considered a basic form of media literacy. Some people find it problematic to equate certain skills such as making videos with basic abilities such as literacy. What do you think?
