    2. 2. Overview 1) introduction to the presentation 2) conceptual framework 3) getting real: IML island development - classroom extensions - research - learning objects - projects 4) conclusion(s) 5) discussion
    3. 3. “ Will there by condominiums in data space?” –  Bill Viola, 1980

    6. 6. Remediation? (Jay David Bolter, Richard Grusin) Domesticating? Question: As we reckon with the changes affecting learners and as we rethink teaching practices, what can the design of virtual spaces do to enhance that rethinking?
    7. 7. Remediation? (Jay David Bolter, Richard Grusin) Domesticating? Question: As we reckon with the changes affecting learners and as we rethink teaching practices, what can the design of virtual spaces do to enhance that rethinking? “ Residents become engines of creation themselves, working as the producers of content in world, designing and reshaping the space around their own ideas and interests.” Cory Ondrejka, “ Education Unleashed: Participatory Culture and Innovation in Second Life.”

    20. 21. Vectors Journal of Culture and Technology
    21. 22. Starting Points – questions about new literacies, new learning and new teaching – two programs dedicated to scholarly multimedia, plus a journal –  faculty members with diverse interests and abilities –  desire to push the boundaries of pedagogy within the needs and abilities of our programs
    22. 23. Other issues: - SL doesn’t exist in a vacuum - coextensive with high information density learning environments - one among many commercial social software applications we use - one among many possible MUVE platforms - lacks appeal for gamers
    23. 24. Part Two: Conceptual Framework – “ The Infrastructure of Experience and the Experience of Infrastructure: Meaning and Structure in Everyday Encounters With Space,” Genevieve Bell and Paul Dourish – “ From Interaction to Participation: Configuring Space Through Embodied Interaction,” Amanda Williams, Eric Kabisch, Paul Dourish
    24. 25. <ul><li>Part Two: Conceptual Framework </li></ul><ul><li>Infrastructures: </li></ul><ul><li>– space is never merely a container for actions but instead “a setting within which we act.” </li></ul><ul><li>infrastructures describe how we encounter spaces, not just as walls and streets, but through information, practices of use and social interaction. </li></ul><ul><li>infrastructures are also “crystallizations of institutional relations” and they reflect power and control </li></ul>
    25. 26. Part Two: Conceptual Framework Infrastructures: –  frame our experience of the world –  operate invisibly until breakdown –  are “relational” –  are embedded into social structures, but are part of that structuring mechanism
    26. 27. “ As a number of commentators have observed, despite the revolutionary and transformational rhetorics surrounding the development of networked information infrastructures, in practice they are as likely to reinforce as to destabilize existing institutional arrangements,” (Bell and Dourish, 3).
    27. 28. Part Two: Conceptual Framework Trialectics: –  Henri Lefebvre, The Production of Space, 1971 (translated in 1991) –  Ed Soja, Thirdspace – Kevin Leander, “Reading the Spatial Histories of Positioning,” in Spatializing Literacy Research and Practices, 2008

    31. 32. Metaverse Territories, Blog by Brad Kligerman – attempt to disrupt connections between real world architecturalpractices and those in the virtual realm – “ constuct a platform from which inworld physical and social patterns can generate the symobology of immaterial architecture” –  build foundation for new media forms emerging from collective intelligence as they become manifest in 3-D space http://metaverseterritories.com
    32. 33. “ The concept of Reflexive Architecture is only one of may branches of opportunity for a new language of virtual architecture to emerge, from from the habit of pure physical replication.” – Jon Brouchaud
    33. 34. Jon Brouchaud, “carvable architecture” http://clearnightsky.com/taxonomy/term/21
