Where teaching & learning look like
Education for Knowledge Abundance
"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
Education needs to be geared toward
the handling of data rather than the accumulation
- Berlo, 1975
Structure of Abundance = Networks
“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.”
So. Stay off the internet, & live happily
ever after? J
Callout culture & networked culture ARE
part of the “apparatus” of our times.
We cannot develop
students’ capacity to live in knowledge
abundance without developing
Networked practices = scholarship
! Scholarship of discovery
! Scholarship of integration
! Scholarship of application
! Scholarship of teaching
Networks allow participation
outside academic hierarchy
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.”
#DigPed = a scholarship of connection.
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
