Scholarly Networks: Friend or Foe or Risky Fray? ALL OF THE ABOVE

  1. 1. Scholarly Networks: Friend or Foe or Risky Fray? (Hint: ALL OF THE ABOVE) Bonnie Stewart University of Prince Edward Island, Canada Digital Pedagogy Lab Cairo March 2016
  2. 2. …what now?
  3. 3. #DigPed = refusing to act/teach/live as Dewey’s “blind cogs & pinions”
  4. 4. #DigPed ≠ Tech http://www.telecomtv.com/articles/tablets/retro-chic-apples-original-macintosh-reimagined-12100
  5. 5. #DigPed = (in part) A Networked Approach
  6. 6. Where teaching & learning look like THIS. https://www.flickr.com/photos/122135325@N06/15117809516/in/dateposted/
  7. 7. #DigPed = Education for Knowledge Abundance http://www.flickr.com/photos/silatix/9886617776/sizes/c
  8. 8. "For the first time in human history, two related propositions are true. One, it no longer is possible to store within the human brain all of the information that a human needs. Second, it no longer is necessary to store within the human brain all of the information that humans need. Education needs to be geared toward the handling of data rather than the accumulation of data.” - Berlo, 1975
  9. 9. Structure of Abundance = Networks https://plus.google.com/+DaveGray/posts/CQRVeKEsUvF?pid=5751686447270321954&oid=117373186752666867801
  10. 10. Price of Admission = Public Identity
  11. 11. Wait. WHOA. ???
  12. 12. Digital Public Scholarly Networks: !  Friend? !  Foe? !  Risky Fray?
  13. 13. YES.
  14. 14. Networks as Friend
  15. 15. Can open new conversations #ed1to1
  16. 16. Can extend conversations, resource-sharing, & visibility of work https://www.flickr.com/photos/legends2k/3473962847
  17. 17. @hypothes_is!
  18. 18. Networks can open up new perspectives
  19. 19. Open new relationships
  20. 20. …And bring care.
  21. 21. Networks enable us to work together across distance.
  22. 22. https://www.flickr.com/photos/ooohoooh/1350774613/ Why? Networks are not just for consuming, but connecting.
  23. 23. Many-to-many communications http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/it/thumb/d/d8/Do_Not_Adjust_Your_Set.jpg/280px-Do_Not_Adjust_Your_Set.jpg
  24. 24. We become network nodes, forming webs of visible (& invisible) connections
  25. 25. BUT.
  26. 26. Networks as Foe
  27. 27. “Deviant trajectories” – Costa (2014) https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/5/59/Love_your_country,_not_government.jpg
  28. 28. Networks make connectedness + scale visible… They enact & replicate power relations.
  29. 29. Networked platforms reduce identity to algorithms
  30. 30. Networks are becoming institutionalized
  31. 31. Networked identities = new forms of vulnerability commodification + institutional indictments of deviance + re-inscription of societal biases
  32. 32. So. Networks as Risky Fray?
  33. 33. KINDA.
  34. 34. Callout Culture is not one single phenomenon https://www.flickr.com/photos/seandavis/16528463225/
  35. 35. http://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2015/11/ conversation-smoosh-twitter-decay/412867/
  36. 36. “The network message from one person to another / others is very rapid and can in effect be in the present… textualized verbal exchange registers psychologically as having the temporal immediacy of oral exchange.” Ong, 1996
  37. 37. Speech-based expectations Call Out Culture = Collapsed Publics Print-based interpretations
  38. 38. So. Stay off the internet, & live happily ever after? J
  39. 39. Callout culture & networked culture ARE part of the “apparatus” of our times. We cannot develop students’ capacity to live in knowledge abundance without developing our own.
  40. 40. Networked practices = scholarship !   Scholarship of discovery !   Scholarship of integration !   Scholarship of application !   Scholarship of teaching ! (Boyer, 1990)
  41. 41. Networks allow participation outside academic hierarchy Sometimes…I’ll choose someone with twenty followers, because I come across something they’ve managed to say in 140 characters, and I think “oh, look at you, crafting on a grain of rice.” - @KateMfD h"ps://www.flickr.com/photos/visualpanic/843670538
  42. 42. Going forward in networks =
  43. 43. Build on what’s been started here
  44. 44. Be your (many) selves
  45. 45. #DigPed = a scholarship of abundance https://www.flickr.com/photos/92998734@N03/8466586880/
  46. 46. #DigPed = a story of connection
  47. 47. #DigPed = a scholarship of connection. Of dance. Ring the bells that still can ring! Forget your perfect offering! There is a crack,! A crack, in everything! That’s how the light gets in.! ! - Leonard Cohen
  48. 48. THANKYOU. @bonstewart bstewart@upei.ca
