Digital cultures

  1. 1. Digital Cultures <br />Learning enabled<br />
  2. 2. Where we were<br />Authored control over text (Carpenter, 2009)<br />Author authority<br />Transmission from author to reader/learner<br />Few authors<br />Learning through reading and writing text.<br />
  3. 3. Where we are now <br />Web 2.0 functions mean that readers can easily be authors and editors (Carpenter, 2009).<br />All with access can control and change (and distort) digital images.<br />Culture more visual less text based. <br />Literacy becomes a broader concept.<br />Many authors – less control over content.<br />
  4. 4. Positives<br />Abundance of information available.<br />Learning can be more flexible – mixing disparate topics, learning on demand.<br />Multiple ways to create and distribute information – can choose ‘method’ (software, application etc) that suits information/audience/learner best (Kress, 2005)<br />Multiple ways to learn.<br />Learning is more playful – it is creative, and fun!<br />
  5. 5. Negatives<br />Less control over authorship lends itself to inaccuracies and misinformation<br />Personal information can be taken and misused by others.<br />Learners now need strategies to develop critical skills over an array of media.<br />
  6. 6. Where we are going?<br />Culture broadens out to involve minutiae of everyday lives.<br />Technology supports lifelogging and extensive data collection…but…coping with overwhelming amount of data?<br />More of the world’s population will be connected to the internet in the future.<br />
