  • Time to rethink
    • The emerging forms of interactive media, information communication technologies and social networking are reshaping almost every aspect of our work and social life
    • These new practices and literacies challenge our traditional ideas about the form and function of education
    • New opportunities for participation and interaction are arising from virtual communities of interest where users are active content creators re-mixing, re-purposing and re-distributing content
    • Technology is quite clearly much more than just a tool but can be an evocative object to think with and an engine of social and cultural change

  • The rise of complex communicative thinking Source: Autor, David, Richard J. Murnane, and Frank Levy, “The Skill Content of Recent Technological Change: An Empirical Exploration.” Quarterly Journal of Economics, 118(4), November 2003, 1279–1334

  • Other leaders have said similar …
    • “ Quick, turn something on…I’m starting to think”
    • Homer Simpson
  • New ways of thinking “… we must develop not only the technical capability but also the intellectual capacity for transforming tacit pedagogical knowledge into commonly usable and visible knowledge” “ We have an opportunity to change the way we create and exchange information, knowledge, and culture [and offer greater] opportunities for cultural self-reflection and human connection.” “ The learning process is about learning-to-be a practitioner rather than just learning about....” “… we need not simply more information, but people to assimilate, understand, and make sense of it.”

  • Social media for learning
    • “ In the end, network literacy is all about our own ability to reach out to others to start our own fires, to attend to our own learning needs, and to navigate these new spaces...”
    • “ This new networked space where we can all connect, create and collaborate is one filled with amazing potentials for learning, many that promise to reshape the way we go about our lives both in and outside of school.”
    • How quickly we begin to understand these potentials, first for ourselves and then for our classrooms, will in no small way determine the preparedness of students to compete successfully in the world they will soon inherit”.

    • Social learning – supporting different connections between people, tools and knowledge
    • Disaggregate the artifact – Look around and within the device
    • Need to develop more transformative understandings of users and technologies in context (presence and place)
    • No one-size-fits-all - the need for multiple, interactive channels
    • Network literacies - move from browser to contributor
    • Engage users - and give them control over how they interact with the environment
    • Need to ensure we don’t “crowd out” different solutions
