  3. 3. Some book-related theory: Processes: • physical • mentalSocially constructed ideas: reader, reading, read • the person • the activity • the material
  4. 4. ‘e’ version theory - 1Summarised: • The person – is not us/me • The activity is not about principle, policy, curriculum design or collection management • The material is not (necessarily) what we/I would choose
  5. 5. ‘e’ version theory - 2So, the person: We are the converted We are the articulate and informed We have the tools and the skills To us it is obvious We have felt the fear and dealt with it (somehow)
  6. 6. ‘e’ version theory - 3The activity: We have the overview We have the tools. And the options We have choice
  7. 7. ‘e’ version theory - 4The material: We have the bigger picture We have more choice and options We have assumptions and expectations

  12. 12. Language matters
  13. 13. “Push and pull” [Look at] … how important information gets around already.Football results, fashions, new music get around very fast.When Michael Jackson died it seemed everyone knew it in afew hours even in remote parts of Chad. The World Cup resultwill be known instantly everywhere. … When looking beyondtechnology at the flow of information like this what can welearn? It is a system which works by itself. driven by demand.Similarly, when we work in HIV and reproductive health thereis always the question of why cigarettes, Omo, beer and CocaCola are found everywhere but NGOs feel a need to distributecondoms. The need to push indicates that there is not anatural pull. ( Barry Sesnan, personal communication, with thanks to ‘Education for nomads’)
  14. 14. from Hack Education
  15. 15. Reminder‘The mobile phone in Africa does something that the OLPC will never do, it integrates itself into the rhythm of life in Africa. Its use flows with the pace of life: it augments ones life experience when it needs to; it plays rescuer when the need arises, it creates incomes where none were possible previously; it makes the world smaller where previously distances were vast. Most importantly, it educates everyone.’ (Project Diaspora, 2010)
