Digital jamming: creativity, collaboration and skill-building through easy engagements with media technologies

5,596 views

Published on

Presenter: Sara Perry, director of studies, digital heritage, University of York.

This interactive session offers an introduction to the application of a variety of simple digital media technologies in building intellectual independence, critical thinking, professional networks and confidence amongst their users. Such technologies offer not only meaningful creative opportunities, but also mechanisms by which the very nature of academic and professional fields of practice can be prodded, extended and perhaps even fundamentally reconfigured.

Alongside considering their problematic implications (including their relationship to free labour, neoliberalism and personal security), I demonstrate here how they promise both to narrow the gap between theory and practice, and simultaneously empower emerging professionals.

Please bring your laptop, smartphone or tablet, and come ready to invent, experiment, discuss your experiences and share your questions and concerns about digital media in the educational environment.

  11. 11. Photo by Gavin Repton, 2014 “I’ve learnt how to work successfully as part of a team…adapting myself to the demands of the outside world. I’ve furthered myself as a person by listening to the feedback of others…and taking action on those points. Yes, I’ve acquired more skills that I can put on my CV…but I think that what I will take away from the module are the friends I’ve made along the way and how I, as a person, have changed for the better.”
  12. 12. Your assignment brief INTRODUCTORY ACTIVITY… By show of hands: who has technology with them: laptop, iphone, ipad that they are willing to use for some simple group work?
  13. 13. Your assignment brief: Intro activity (5 mins) Sit yourself in a group of 3 or max 4 people. Need at least one functioning device, preferably a device w camera.* Introduce yourselves to one another + quickly nominate one person to act as (1) written record taker, (2) mediocre photo taker, (3) web surfer, (4) time keeper & positive support giver Name at least one creative talent that you have – could be related to music, art, writing, coding, gaming, photography, filmmaking, selfie-taking, comedy. Record taker writes this down. Draw a stick-person representation of yourself & your creative talent. Photo taker documents your stick person family. You should have a ‘group’ photo + photos of each individual.
  14. 14. “…I feel like…this is going to sound really cheesy, but I feel like I learned something about me. You know what I mean, I learned something about what I am.” (Y3 UG, female on BLOGGING) “I think it’s informed a sense that I’ve recently come to that I’d like to do something that gives back to society, that isn’t just working for a company, 9-5 or whatever. I want to contribute something to the world around…” (PG, male on BLOGGING) “I have found the module to be one of my favourite modules thus far. I really enjoyed the creativity it has allowed me through the Google Group discussion and the assessments…” (PG on GOOGLE GROUP) “I was really satisfied with using Google Groups because I’m an international student [South Korean] so I can understand what professors are speaking…I can study outside of the classroom so I can understand 100% what British people are speaking. So for me, I can say what I want to”. (PG on GOOGLE GROUP) “I have never felt so encouraged or empowered to pursue the interests developed in a module beyond the confines of the course.” (PG on MEDIUM.com) “fosters a real sense of camaraderie in the cohort as we learn how to constructively comment on each others' work.” (PG on GROUP and MEDIUM.com)

  23. 23. Develop a meme about Digifest 2017. Use paper to develop your prototype meme. Or link here - https://goo.gl/55azoq - & use a slide to make your meme. Make sure you are the only group using that slide (colour coding). Use your stick figure family to populate the imagery. (If you are using a laptop, upload your photos.) Or have your web surfer look *fast* for a CC-licensed image through one of the sites listed on the CC file here – https://goo.gl/wA5JB6 You have 5 mins. What do you want to say about Digifest? Can you say it via the “This is Bill” format? Or by another standard meme format like “What if I told you…”
  24. 24. Your assignment brief: cooperative activity Develop a meme about Digifest 2017. Show the group your meme. Photograph your meme for posterity if you’ve been working from a paper prototype. Please hand your papers to Sara at the end of the session. Add your email addresses if you want to keep in touch/share the meme digitally. Sara will circulate.
  25. 25. “helped to develop my confidence and improve [the] quality of my English. Writing…for our blog has reminded me how much [it] gives me a pleasure & maybe in the future I would like to create my own blog.” (Y1 UG, female on BLOGGING) “you had the chance to be creative and think outside the box of what heritage and archaeology have been built up for you to be…it gave me more confidence…we produced something at the end which we were all really proud of.” (Y1 UG, female on BLOGGING & MOVIEMAKER/YOUTUBE) “it was good to explain to people outside of our small group what we were doing, and I hope that people saw it because it’s something that meant a lot to us. It’s just trying to get across how much time and effort and how much love has gone into this project.” (Y2 UG, female on BLOGGING) “I thought the use of Google Group and medium.com linked with the module was really stimulating to develop new ideas, discussions around heritage.” (PG, on MEDIUM.com & GOOGLE GROUP) “It actually got me reading news related to heritage & archaeology, which previously I’d never bothered with ever…I knew more than I ever did prior to studying it or even working in various positions. Twitter…built understanding and actually widened my own interests…It leads you towards things.” (PG on TWITTER)
