  1. 1. CRITICAL DIGITAL FLUENCY agency and activism in today’s polluted digital world dr. amy collier middlebury @amcollier
  2. 2. UNDER TRUMP, EDUCATION WILL BE A SITE OF OVERT STRUGGLE OVER CIVIL & HUMAN RIGHTS
  3. 3. …all liberating practice---which values the exercise of will, of decision, of resistance, of choice, the role of emotions, of feelings, of desires, of limits, the importance of historic awareness, of an ethical human presence in the world, and the understanding of history as possibility and never as determination---is substantively hopeful and, for this reason, produces hope.” Paulo Freire, Pedagogy of Indignation, p.24
  4. 4. WE MUST RETHINK HOW & WHAT WE ARE TEACHING
  5. 5. WE MUST REBUILD TRUST
  6. 6. THE GOAL OF MIS/DISINFORMATION AND POLARIZATION IS THE EROSION OF TRUST

  9. 9. WE MUST HOLD PEOPLE, PLATFORMS, & INSTITUTIONS ACCOUNTABLE
  10. 10. “THIS FELTAND FUNCTIONED LIKE FREEDOM, BUT IT WAS ALWAYS A COMMERCIAL SIMULATION.”
  11. 11. walled gardens?
  12. 12. Do our technologies or our stories work in the interest of justice and equity? Or, rather, have we adopted technologies for teaching and learning that are much more aligned with that military mission of command and control? The mission of the military. The mission of the church. The mission of the university. Audrey Watters, Ed Tech in a Time of Trump
  13. 13. “We have built the extractive technology to track students minutely.We can continue to invest in improving its efficiency and extending its range.We can boast and promise and envision the seamless world in which human gesture is all the window we need into human thought.We can forget everything we know about the history of surveillance and social vulnerability. Or like the other mining industries in our world economy, we can start to think ahead to the risks and consequences of carrying on like this.This future is not inevitable, and our concerns are not naïve…Counting students in and out of lecture theatres is not trying to improve student life or learning. It’s searching for solutions that will contain the labour cost of actually listening to students about why they come to lectures, or don’t.” Kate Bowles, Day-to-day Photo by Jordan McQueen on Unsplash
  14. 14. NEUTRALITY IS IMMORAL“…there can be no such thing as neutrality. It’s a code word for the existing system…Neutrality is just following the crowd. Neutrality is being just what the system asks us to be. Neutrality, in other words, was an immoral act…It was to me a refusal to oppose injustice or to take sides that are unpopular. It’s an excuse, in other words.” (Paulo Freire, We Make the Road by Walking, p. 102)
  15. 15. “THIS FELTAND FUNCTIONED LIKE FREEDOM, BUT IT WAS ALWAYS A COMMERCIAL SIMULATION.”
  16. 16. EDUCATION IS A PRACTICE OF FREEDOM
