Abstract

This paper describes an alternative approach to traditional instructional design models by suggesting that participatory communication theory (PCT) creates a process which values the learner's voice. As a student develops a critical awareness of his/her environment, participatory media becomes a catalyst for cognition. Learners use media tools to influence their own lives. PCT suggests that learning is political as well as psychological and that dignity is a fundamental component of learning.
