  • Definition This may be helpful as an addition to the definition (a little broader context): Danah Boyd, Harvard Fellow and Researcher at Microsoft describes some key properties and dynamics that alter the way we interact with one another. These features include: persistence (what you put out on the internet stays there), replicability (the cut and paste phenomenon), searchability (you can be found), scalability (what you say to one reaches many) and (de)locatabilty (we’re both mobile – not connected to a single space- and findable – by virtue of our portable devices). These properties and the alteration of social dynamics to include invisible audiences, collapsed contexts and the blurring of public and private spaces means that we are dealing with a new, ever changing landscape of communication and relationship. As Danah Boyd states:   “ One of the key challenges is learning how to adapt to an environment in which these properties and dynamics play a key role.”   boyd, danah. 2009. "Social Media is Here to Stay... Now What?" Microsoft Research Tech Fest, Redmond, Washington, February 26. Retrieved March 10, 2009: http://www.danah.org/papers/talks/MSRTechFest2009.html
  • Danah Boyd, Harvard Fellow and Researcher at Microsoft describes some key properties and dynamics that alter the way we interact with one another. These features include: persistence (what you put out on the internet stays there) replicability (the cut and paste phenomenon): We should be aware that our online content is permanent. This is not only due to caching but because…all content in a digital space can be moved freely around the Web. This "cut and paste" culture allows rapid and widespread sharing of information, and it also means that photos, emails, IMs, comments, and more can be taken out of context and used in ways that the author didn't intend. searchability (you can be found): scalability (what you say to one reaches many): People need to know that “being online is essentially being in public.” regardless of the passwords, email accounts and privacy settings we think are protecting us. Take protective measures, yes, but consider whether you ultimately want to share information publicly before posting anything, anywhere… (de)locatabilty (we’re both mobile – not connected to a single space- and findable – by virtue of our portable devices). These properties and the alteration of social dynamics to include invisible audiences, collapsed contexts and the blurring of public and private spaces means that we are dealing with a new, ever changing landscape of communication and relationship. As Danah Boyd states:   “ One of the key challenges is learning how to adapt to an environment in which these properties and dynamics play a key role.” Anonymity: We don’t know who is viewing the information we share online and what their intentions are for using that information. Unfortunately, this illusion of anonymity leads some people to behave and interact online in ways they wouldn’t face-to-face. Eg. We’ve all heard disturbing stories of cyberbullying, (share story with time), we’ve seen some stats on sexting… and though the media focuses its attention on them, we also know these behaviours aren’t limited to young adults. So we definitely need to ask “who” are we interacting with when we choose to participate and contribute online.   boyd, danah. 2009. "Social Media is Here to Stay... Now What?"

  • Work in pairs (5 mins). Identify all of the places where you have contributed or created content online. Debrief with larger group (5 min) (capture this).
  • Introduce the tutorial: context that it aims to help students make informed choices about create/contributing online content in personal, academic and professional realms  more on this later in cases Goals for the broader project Show the Work section: Link to teacher guidelines for Facebook Employers Dig For Dirt Portfolios: MsRoy’s portfolio: http://efolio.educ.ubc.ca/sroy/category/04-role-of-parents-and-home/
  • Pairs (5 min) What are the advantages to creating a blog like MsRoy’s? Disadvantages/drawbacks/cautions? Also, please have a look at this example of an e-portfolio developed by a teacher candidate from 2009: http://efolio.educ.ubc.ca/sroy/category/04-role-of-parents-and-home/   At this link she is reflecting on Standard 4.  She provides a link--"Artifact #5"--to her own, personal blog on Wordpress.com. Click on that, and you find a blog she developed for the students/parents in her practicum.  We might use that as an example, good or iffy, for students to think about.
  • 3 examples for your consideration: each of these examples raises particular issues, questions and general food for thought around the use of particular social media tools. Individual: US student teacher denied teaching degree based on MySpace photo – drunken behavior Educator: Mr. H’s support hub: http://sargentparkmathzone.blogspot.com/ Professional: http://www.cbc.ca/canada/british-columbia/story/2009/09/08/bc-north-vancouver-facebook-teachers-guidelines-students.html Groups of three (3 cases for discussion) Considering the case you were told about, discuss the questions and issues that this raises for you from the perspective that you were assigned. Identify one key issue that you think is the most relevant given your perspective right now. Debrief

  • 2. What is a Digital Tattoo?
    • The vast array of data points that make up “personal information” in the age of online media are nearly impossible to quantify or neatly define. Name, address, and phone number are just the basics in a world where voluntarily posting self-authored content such as text, photos, and video has become a cornerstone of engagement in the era of the participatory Web.
