Who are we when we're online? We are what we contribute. ...

Who are we when we're online? We are what we contribute.

This presentation gives a conceptual overview of some of the key "selves" that we navigate in building digitally-networked identities, and what these selves make possible (and challenging) for educators. It focuses on the ways in which we signal ourselves online, and what gets opened up for learning, in the process.

  • Who do you want to be when you grow up?
  • Wrong question.   
  • What do you want to contribute?   •  What are your strengths? •  What brought you into education? •  What kind of work puts you in a state of flow?   •  What do you want to be h#p://www.flickr.com/photos/2nker-­‐tailor/8378048032/sizes/z/   known for?
  • “Knowledge emerges only through invention and re-invention, through the restless, impatient, continuing, hopeful inquiry human beings pursue in the world, with the world, and with each other.” - Friere, The ‘Banking’ Concept of Education, p. 244
  • Education = Multiple axes of change public funding knowledge scarcity open closed markets knowledge abundance
  • Increasing pressure to go online

  • T witter = currently the most open network
  • Personal/Professional Learning Networks Image:  @Courosa  
  • Networks are not about online/ offline binaries h#p://www.flickr.com/photos/zigazou76/5824384001/sizes/z/  
  • Networked identities are hybrid identities
  • Networks are not just about new tools, but new literacies h#p://www.flickr.com/photos/rofi/2647699204/    
  • Differing sensibilities & legitimacy practices Institutions product-focused mastery bounded by time/space hierarchical ties plagiarism authority in role audience = teacher Networks process-focused participation always accessible peer-to-peer ties crowdsourcing authority in reputation audience = world                      
  • Who are we when we’re online? … Ourselves. Amplified. Engaged in visible identity work.
  • Always Multiple http://www.flickr.com/photos/thelotuscarroll/6842167375/

  • The Performative Self
  • Bring identity into being: lather, rinse, repeat your contributions
  • The Quantified Self
  • The Participatory Self (connections and comments build ties: ties are persistent, replicable, scalable & searchable)
  • The Asynchronous Self http://www.flickr.com/photos/vylen/6158720720/
  • The Augmented Self “The mistake of early internet theorists was their assumption that The Web provided an alternate space in which social actors were free to be who they wanted, rather than who they were... In addition to knowing who we are by seeing what we do, we also know who we are by seeing how others respond to us. As such, our ideal selves can only manifest to the extent to which our networks allow it. ” -  Jenny Davis    h#p://thesocietypages.org/cyborgology/2013/11/04/re-­‐imagined-­‐authen2city/  
  • The Surveilled Self “The internet is on principle a system that you reveal yourself to in order to fully enjoy, which differentiates it from, say, a music player. It is a TV that watches you.” - Edward Snowden, in The Washington Post 
  • The Branded “Me, Inc.” Self http://www.flickr.com/photos/mikebaird/4880623547
  • Context Collapse …that awkward moment when you remember you friended your grandma on Facebook. Or that your students – or your VP, or your new boss – follow you on T witter.
  • Digital Selves = Public l  Aware of being watched Aware of scale of l  attention l  Build identity by repetition l  Build ties by visible communications http://www.flickr.com/photos/wolfgangfoto/2755774089/
