3. A changing digital landscape: redefining ICT

  • Trends
    • Shift from content to social mediation
    • New practices of creation, sharing and dialogue
    • Scaling up/network effects
  • Web 2.0 practices
    • Peer critiquing
    • User generated content
    • Collective aggregation
    • Community formation
    • Digital personas

Thought experiment:A user interacting with technology to achieve a specific goal goal achieves Mediatingartefacts Multiplecommunicationchannels:Email, texting, blogs, wikis, forums,Skype, social networking sites, virtual worldsMultiplelocations & representations :Repositories, RSS feeds,social bookmarking, concept maps,tag clouds, data maps, avatars 4. Paradoxes created by the digital Expansiveknowledgedomain Hierarchy& control less meaningful Increasinglycomplexdigital landscape Contentdistributed,everything is miscellaneous Collective intelligence Freecontent & tools, open APIs and mash ups Death of expertise everyone an expert Multiple pathways / lost in cyberspace Beyond digital space/ NewmetaphorsMultiple (co-)locations/ loss of content integrity Socialcollective/digitalindividualism Issues re:ownership , value, business models 5. Educational dilemmas Expansive knowledge domain Hierarchy & control less meaningful Increasingly complex digital landscape Content distributed, everything is miscellaneous Collective intelligence Free content & tools, open APIs and mash ups Challenges therole of the teacher Need fornew learner pathways Widening skills gapbetween tech savy/others Need to rethink the d esign process Potential fornew forms of learning Lack of uptake 6. Digital literacies

  • Jenkins twelve skills for participatory culture
    • Play experimentation/problem solving
    • Performance alternative identities
    • Simulation construct models of real-world processes
    • Appropriation sample and remix of media content
    • Multitasking scanning and then focusing on salient details
    • Distributed cognition interaction to expand mental capacities
    • Collective intelligence- to pool knowledge with others
    • Judgment evaluation reliability of different information
    • Transmedia navigation follow the flow of stories across modalities
    • Networking search for,synthesize and dissemination information
    • Negotiation travel diverse communities, multiple perspectives
    • Visualisation different data representations for ideas, patterns, trends

Digital literacies Seely Brown Jenkins Lea and Goodfellow Lankshear 7. A case study intervention

  • Issues
    • Lack of uptakeof technologies for learning and teaching
    • New skillsneeded for engaging in a participatory digital landscape
    • Teachers say they wantexamples /want toshare/discuss
  • Aim
    • Tobridge the gapbetween the potential of technologies and their actual use in an educational context
  • Research question
    • Can weharness web 2.0 practicesto foster better sharing and discussing of learning and teaching ideas and designs?

8. Principles and methodology

  • Principles
    • User-centred
    • Theory-based
    • Critically reflective and evolving
  • Methodology
    • Rich evaluation with elements of virtual ethnography
    • Agile development : initially build in Drupal, now Codeigniter
    • Series of phases:design decisions, development, evaluation
  • Data collection
    • Web stats including google analytics
    • Interviews
    • Cloudfests and focus groups
    • Workshops and conferences
    • Observation and reflective diaries
    • Critical friends group and design summits

9. Initial theoretical perspectives Social objects Social networking makes little senseif we leave out the objects that mediatethe ties between people EngestrmDesign framework for sociality Enabling practice Mimicking reality Building identity Actualising self Bouman et al . 10. 11. Key concepts

  • Clouds:
    • core objects in Cloudworks
  • Cloudscapes:
    • collections of clouds
  • Activity streams:
    • dynamic filters of new activity
  • Follow and be followed:
    • Personal activity stream and peer recognition
