  10. 10. “I don’t think education is about centralized instruction anymore; rather, it is the process [of] establishing oneself as a node in a broad network of distributed creativity.” @Joi Ito (2011) Slide: CC-BY-SA catherinecronin Image: CC BY-NC-SA 2.0 yobink
  11. 11. Networked participatory scholarship is the emergent practice of scholars’ use of participatory technologies and online social networks to share, reflect upon, critique, improve, validate, and further their scholarship... In courses organized as networks… course activity takes place in distributed online fora. This type of online course breaks away from the norm of 20th century university scholarship by positioning knowledge around social connections rather than around content, enabling scholars to re-envision teaching instruction, their role as teachers, and the ways that knowledge is acquired.” Veletsianos & Kimmons (2012) “

  17. 17. Learners need to practice and experiment with different ways of enacting their identities, and adopt subject positions through different social technologies and media. These opportunities can only be supported by academic staff who are themselves engaged in digital practices and questioning their own relationship with knowledge. - Keri Facer & Neil Selwyn
