The ds106 Files: Outbreaks of Infectious and Open Acts of Creativity

1,991

Published on

Keynote presentation for TechFest 2013, University of Alaska-Fairbanks http://www.alaska.edu/oit/techfest/

While much of higher education seems hunkered down in crises of a broken system or MOOC takeover, reports are filtering in from the distal portions of the internet where open, spontaneous, volunteered acts of creative expression seem to be spreading at alarming rates. These reports have been traced to a loose federation of registered students, teachers, and openly participating individuals of all ages in something known as ds106, an open course in digital storytelling. Patient Zero has been traced to students at the University of Mary Washington, but activity has spread to multiple institutions, K-12 schools, retirees, artists, and people of various affiliations across North America, Europe, Africa, and Australasia. The report highlights the manifestations of this creativity in individually managed internet domains and self-hosted blogs, demonstrated in visual, audio, video, and remixed media, extensively reflected upon. Intense activity has been spotted in blog comments, twitter, Google Plus, and social media platforms, including the current incarnation as a "headless" course. The most intense focus areas are around atypical course constructs of daily creative challenges, a web-based radio station, and an open assignment bank.

It is likely some of you will be affected by contact with this information and may end up devoting time to creating animated GIFs, remixed movie trailers, and radio shows.

  13. 13. ds106 has given this me the conviction that I, at 72, can make videos, that tell my story beautifully, thoughtfully, and truthfully. The community aspect gives me the security that, no how busy I am with other things, I can always "drop into" ds106 and continue to learn more.

  84. 84. http://edreach.us/podcast/chalkstar-to-rockstar-05-ds106-is-the-5th-dimension-of-teaching-and-learning/ In the end, more than anything, ds106 isn't a class, it's a community. It's a group of people coming together to share stories and ideas on an open platform and openly accessible at anytime, anywhere. So that brings us back to that original question-- what is it? It is what you make of it. And that's the thing I think that Jim and Alan want people to take away. Your story is what you make of it and ds106 can be a way for you learn how to tell that story. "If it's nothing else what it's true value is that it's a place where people can experiment with what online learning could like like and might look like and the more it looks like the web the better" (Jim Groom)
  85. 85. http://aetherbunny.com/2013/03/18/ds106-teaching-an-ethos/ At its core, though, ds106 is just as much about conveying a particular ethos, informed by the rhetoric of innovation and open education that’s part of the larger conversation about edtech. When I say “rhetoric of innovation,” I’m referring to the line of thinking that pursuing a new way of completing a task, a new way of thinking, or a unique experience is more valuable than sticking to well-established methods, which I encountered constantly (and found incredibly compelling) as a student in ds106. The value of open resources, online communities as vital spaces for learning, the thoughtful creation of identity online, and giving students the freedom to create their own learning experiences are all integral to the ds106 experience. Each of those elements reflects the overarching ethos established by the professors who constructed and teach the course, one that touts openness, creativity and the innovative use of tech as essential components for constructing a new, more compelling and student- driven educational model.
