Within the new participatory ethos of media and information that knowledge abundance brings into being, filtering and prioritizing the messages we choose to trust cannot be done solely on traditional broadcast terms. Thus we need to learn to make sense of each other, and to make ourselves make sense: this presentation explores the ways in which identities are a central aspect of networked literacies, especially for teachers. Part 2 of a 2-part MIL session in London, January 2014.

    Identities & Literacies of a New Ethos Identities & Literacies of a New Ethos Presentation Transcript

    • Identities & Literacies  of a New Ethos: Media & Information Literacies Part II Bonnie  Stewart   University  of  Prince  Edward  Island   @bonstewart  
    • Information Abundance… h:p://www.flickr.com/photos/silaBx/9886617776/sizes/c  
    • …can become information overload h:p://www.flickr.com/photos/striaBc/2191408271/  
    • “It’s not information overload, it’s filter failure.” - Clay Shirky, 2008 FINE THEN .   h:p://www.flickr.com/photos/shadowplanet/4750073771/  
    • Traditional Media Literacy Filters = Judgment, Analysis, Critical Thinking h:p://ezasseenontv.com/tag/as-­‐seen-­‐on-­‐tv-­‐store/  
    • But those are no longer sufficient.  Not all media & information is coming from institutions  - or via broadcast - any longer.
    •    We need to be able to filter AND contribute within the constant, intermeshed streams of the fire hydrant, without drowning.
    • Networks = a Reputational Economy h:p://www.flickr.com/photos/8113246@N02/7932198032  
    • Digitally Networked Media:  4 qualities •  •  •  •  Persistent Searchable Replicable Scalable
    • Identities = the Structure of Networks Thanks  to  @mhawksey  
    • Networked Identities =  Multiple, Public, Participatory
    • Many to Many Literacies
    • Signal/Noise Literacies h:p://www.flickr.com/photos/promediagroup/5726389205  
    • Remix & Citation Literacies
    • New media literacies are more participatory, collaborative, and distributed…less published, individuated, and author-centric (adapted from Knobel & Lankshear, A New Literacies Sampler, 2007)
    • Always Connected h:p://www.flickr.com/photos/ryanr/142455033/  
    • Always Hybrid
    • Now I’m TOTALLY Overwhelmed. h:p://www.flickr.com/photos/9910344@N05/3963368371/  
    • The journey of 1,000 connections begins with a single signal.
    • Networks are connections,  identity to identity
    • To build connections in a network:
    • But what does this have to do with education?
    • Let Go of the Need to Know Everything
    • What do students need to know? ww.flickr.com/photos/marcobellucci/3534516458/  
    • How do I know? ww.flickr.com/photos/marcobellucci/3534516458/  
    • I don’t know. ww.flickr.com/photos/marcobellucci/3534516458/  
    • Teaching/learning in networks = 1.  Preparing for uncertainty 2.  Letting go of THE answer 3.  Offering possibilities and experiences 4.  Dealing with complexity 5.  Being responsible to your own learning 6.  Drawing your own map & making it visible
    • Not just for teachers but for students
    • A networked education… l  Connects l  Cultivates l  h:p://www.flickr.com/photos/gforsythe/7153872159/   Curates
    • …but cannot  control or count value  in the same ways as institutional models of education
    •     Where will you begin? J
