If you just watched the
CyberWise Guide to New Media
 
video then you know that a simple definition of new me-diais that it’s “the online and digital way of exchanginginformation.” While for many this way of communicatingis no longer new, the fact that tools and technologies are constantlyemerging and changing makes it feel new and different for most of us (es-pecially busy parents and educators!).
So What is Digital Media?
The term “digital media” is used interchangeably with“new media.” It can be thought of as the different plat-forms on which people communicate electronically.
 And What About SocialMedia?
“Social Media” is a subset of new media that allows for online interac-tion and engagement. It doesn’trefer to specific tool or platform, butrather how that tool is used.
 What are the Tools &Technologies?
The confusing part is making sense of all the tools and technologies cur-rently available. So we’ve compiled a list on the following pages that pro-vides a broad overview of the landscape.Remember, all of this is continually changing and many of these tech-nologies span more than one “type.” Hopefully this list will at least allowyou to wow your friends, students, and children with your new mediaknowledge.

 What Is New Media?
While words like
new media, digital media, social media, Inter-net, Web 2.0, online,
etc. are often used interchangeably, whatis important to remember is that we are now living in a “par-ticipatory culture” (Jenkins, et al, 2005) which means new on-line tools enable us to be to be both producers and consumersof media. You’ll learn more about “participatory culture” inthe next lesson.
