  9. 9. People live their lives and learn across multiple settings, and this holds true not only across the span of our lives but also across and within the institutions and communities they inhabit – even classrooms, for example. I take an approach that urges me to consider the significant overlap across these boundaries as people, tools, and practices travel through different and even contradictory contexts and activities. KRIS GUTIERREZ
  10. 10. JOI ITO “I don’t think education is about centralized instruction anymore; rather, it is the process [of] establishing oneself as a node in a broad network of distributed creativity.” @joi

  30. 30. Many students already have confident social identities online, but developing identities as learners, writers, scholars, citizens — these are important tasks as part of higher education. - Catherine Cronin http://catherinecronin.wordpress.com/2014/02/12/openeducation-and- identities/ ROLE OF INSTITUTION IN DIGITAL IDENTITY
  31. 31. If institutions of learning are going to help learners with the real challenges they face… [they] will have to shift their focus from imparting curriculum to supporting the negotiation of productive identities through landscapes of practice.” - Etienne Wenger (Digital Habitats, 2010) ROLE OF INSTITUTION IN DIGITAL IDENTITY
