    14. 14. Technology stories I have heardTechnology will make learning more interactive Technology will make learning more personal Technology will make learning more collaborative Technology will make you more productive Technology will undo all the effects of educational disadvantage ‘E-learning is important because it can contribute to all the governments objectives for education - to raising standards, improving quality, removing barriers to learning, and, ultimately, ensuring that every learner achieves their full potential’ (DfES 2003).

    17. 17. Technology stories I have heardTechnology will make learning more interactive Technology will make learning more personal Technology will make learning more collaborative Technology will make you more productive Technology will undo all the effects of educational disadvantage ‘Soon there won’t be any technology, it will all be direct, you know. Mind to mind. Or just that one technology, the mind to mind one.’ Computer science student, 1999
    18. 18. Education is also a story about the future When things changed very little, people learned through imitation, observation and enculturationFormal education (for a few) really got going in WesternEurope with the ReformationExtended to the majority during the industrial revolution-> beginning of a national, public education system
    19. 19. Education is also a story about the futureHypothesis: society invests in (public) education to theextent that young people have to be prepared for afuture that is different from the previous generationThe curriculum= a map of thatpossible future

    23. 23. Digital technology is systemic in education ‘We are not rethinking some part or aspect of learning, we are rethinking all of learning in these new digital contexts’ (2007)
    24. 24. Digital technology is implicated in the crisisof confidence/legitimacy in public higher education
    25. 25. Digital technology is implicated in the crisisof confidence/legitimacy in public higher education “higher level skills for a knowledge economy” “a consumer revolution for students”
    26. 26. Digital technology is implicated in the crisisof confidence/legitimacy in public higher education From collegiality to managerialism From innovation to standardisation From public service to consumer benefit
    27. 27. In telling hopeful stories about the technologicalfuture...
    28. 28. ... we must not ignore the crisis in front of us politics power disadvantage finite resources
    29. 29. Some hopeful signs from the world of technology
    30. 30. Some hopeful signs from the world of technology ingenious devices connectivity -> emergence power, speed & scale multimedia capture / design information = communication
    31. 31. Some hopeful signs from the world of technology
    32. 32. Some hopeful signs from the world of technology ‘I took the whole published works of Ted Hughes into that archive with me, on my laptop. And that meant, when I saw... that image he’d changed, I could search through everything he’d every written and trace it, and find the echoes... That would have been my whole PhD, 20 years ago. English studies student, 2011
    33. 33. Three hopeful stories aboutthe future of education in a digital world The new means of knowledge production: open content and open educational practices The new critical being: digital literacy beyond ECDL Education/al/development for an uncertain future
    34. 34. Open content and open educational practices using and supporting others to use re-using content in open content teaching contexts open research data open peer reviewopen publication and comment collaborating openly across borderssupporting public access to knowledge using open source tools teaching/learning in open networks
    35. 35. Open content and open educational practicesCapetown Declaration (2009)We encourage educators and learners to actively participate in the emerging openeducation movement... creating, using, adapting and improving open educationalresources; embracing educational practices built around collaboration, discovery and thecreation of knowledge; and inviting peers and colleagues to get involved.
    36. 36. Digital literacy: from skills to practices(digital literacy - maslow’s hierarchy, schon’sdouble-loop learning)interrogating the ends as well as the means)
    37. 37. Digital literacy: from confident use to critical action Graduate Attribute Statementsa confident, agile adopter of a rangeof technologies for personal,academic and professional use Technoliteracies must(Oxford Brookes University) become reflective and critical,our graduates will be confident users aware of the educational,of advanced technologies; they will social, and politicallead others, challenging convention assumptions involved in theby exploiting the rich sources of restructuring of education,connectivity digital working allows technology, and society(Wolverhampton University) currently under wayto be effective global citizens andinteract in a networked society (Kahn and Kellner 2005)(Leeds Metropolitan University)
    38. 38. Digital literacy: from confident use to critical action‘questioning the ends for which technologies offer themselves,as well as the means by which they are useful’ (2010)
    39. 39. Design for an uncertain future: the new curriculum
    40. 40. Design for an uncertain future: the new curriculum
    41. 41. Design for an uncertain future: the new curriculum Engaged students – the leaders of tomorrow – are encouraged to see how their own ideas can lead to collaborative change … If institutions can embrace passionate student advocates, they will be in a good position to drive forward innovation and to make a real and genuinedifference to the services they provide.

    43. 43. A thought from Dewey The great advance of electrical science in the last generation was closely associated... with the application of electric agencies to means of communication, transportation, lighting of cities and houses, and more economical production of goods. These are social ends, moreover, and if they are too closely associated with notions of private profit, it is not because of anything in them, but because they have been deflected to private uses: a fact which puts upon the school the responsibility of restoring their connection in the mind of the coming generation, with public scientific and social interests.John Dewey (1916)Photo by S.Groppi, downloaded from http://www.flickr.com/photos/groppi/105326649/ under a creative commons licence
