  37. 37. Good looking with technology<br />Multi-modal research is not simply a mosaic. Instead … we can see it as a new multi-semiotic form in which meaning is produced through the inter-relationships between and among different media and modes. <br />(Dicks & Mason, 1999, p. 78) <br />Ethnographers do not describe what they see, they see what they know how to describe. <br />(Wolcott, 1999, p. 101)<br />Computer Engineer barbie is pretty good looking! http://www.barbie.com<br />
  38. 38. Good looking with technology<br />Should we use the tools we are most comfortable with, or experiment with new ones so that we’re forced to look and see in different ways?<br />
  39. 39. Good looking with technology<br />Should we use the tools we are most comfortable with, or experiment with new ones so that we’re forced to look and see in different ways?<br />One quickly realises that, as important as fieldwork is to accomplishing ethnography, it is the mindwork (and the accompanying deskwork) that goes with it that is most critical. Ethnography is more than method.<br />(Wolcott, 1999, p. 66)<br />
  40. 40. Good looking with technology<br />Should we use the tools we are most comfortable with, or experiment with new ones so that we’re forced to look and see in different ways?<br />One quickly realises that, as important as fieldwork is to accomplishing ethnography, it is the mindwork (and the accompanying deskwork) that goes with it that is most critical. Ethnography is more than method.<br />(Wolcott, 1999, p. 66)<br />Hypermedia ethnography is a valuable and effective methodology for qualitative research that allows for richness, transparency and flexibility in both the research process and the research product. (This is also the problem). <br />
