  9. 9. • Instead of trying to mass- produce children who are good at taking tests and memorizing things, schools should emphasize personal development, Robinson said.

  14. 14. • Digital media • Taking away abilities to do things they could do before, or do things they shouldn’t do • Ruining people’s ability to make meaning precisely/accurately with language • Social relationships – becoming isolated or meeting up with ‘the wrong kind of people’ • Changing the way that people think – easily distracted – unable to construct/follow complex arguments. • Social identities - are these ‘genuine’, Jones & and how much do you have control over?

  16. 16. • Over the year, many of the young people I worked with wanted to talk about the events of last summer [Riots]. Would they be tempted to respond to a message such as: "Its all kicking off at PC World – where r u?" I asked them. "It depends on who sent it," was the reply. But who would they turn to for advice if things started going wrong: teachers? Parents? Police? ChildLine? To which the almost unanimous response was: "No way, wed only be able to talk to our mates, theyre the only ones who would understand."http://www.guardian.co.uk/society/2012/aug/07/young-people-guidance-threats-social-media

  20. 20. Jake‟s Story… • “Jake told the executive that he never goes directly to a brand like this man‟s newspaper or even to blogs he likes. ... he reads a lot of news – far more than I did at his age. But he goes to that news only via the links from Digg, friends‟ blogs, and Twitter. He travels all around the internet that is edited by his peers because he trusts them and knows they share his interests. The web of trust is built at eye-level, peer-to-peer.” (Jarvis, p.86, my emphasis)
  21. 21. DISCUSS• All technologies offer AFFORDANCES, CONSTRAINTS and change SOCIAL PRACTICES• What has been made possible with the introduction of mobile phones?• How have mobile phones limited our activities?• How have our social practices/habits, etc. changed since mobile phones?
  22. 22. Student Expectations?• Global (Used creating their own YouTube videos, and expecting a quick response – from anywhere in the world!)• Responsive (Used to rapid response/feedback, 3 week guarantee “too long”)• Flexible (Used to having more than one starting point)• Interactive (Looking for a relationship of trust, staff/student partnership: The teacher has a role of leader, but needs „distributed leadership‟)• Often facile or trivial
  23. 23. • Persistence • Perpetual Beta • Scalability • Searchability@6% 360/6636
  24. 24. “Based on their studies of practice-basedcommunities, Lave and Wenger (1991) observed hownovices in the community may start at the periphery of acommunity, by watching and observing others, a processthey term „legitimate peripheral participation‟. Overtime, they learn and develop expertise and become morecentral to the community and its activities. For Wenger(1998) being a member of a community of practice notonly develops a participant’s expertise in the practiceon which the community is focused; learners’identities are also shaped by their engagement andrelationship with the community.”http://oro.open.ac.uk/34100/2/4B5D6CE3.pdf

  29. 29. • The Methodist Church social media policy:• Be credible. Be accurate, fair, thorough and transparent.• Be consistent. Encourage constructive criticism and deliberation.• Be cordial, honest and professional at all times. Be responsive. When you gain insight, share it where appropriate.• Be integrated. Wherever possible, align online participation with other communications.• Be a good representative of the Methodist Church. Remember that you are an ambassador for Christ, the Church and your part of it. Disclose your position as
a member or officer of the Church, making it clear when speaking personally. Let Galatians 5:22–26 guide your behaviour (fruits of the spirit).• Be respectful: respect confidentiality. Respect the views of others even where you disagree.http://www.methodist.org.uk/ministers-and-office-holders/technology-and-church/social-media-guidelines

  48. 48. #DIGIDISCIPLE
  49. 49. • Whether as a Christian or a digital explorer, you‟re a newbie or an old hat, a rookie or a bishop (and in the digital sphere, there will be some who fit in all categories), we all have something to contribute to the digital space. The concept of the digital as „space‟ or a „culture‟ is important as we come from a perspective in which:• As Christians we live 24/7 for God, in whatever spaces we live in or engage with (see LICC for more on this).• There is no such thing as „virtual‟ and „real‟ worlds: only online and offline space/cultures – the connection between the two is different for each individual.• We need to take seriously our Christian presence both online and offline. Are we the same person, living by the same values in both „spaces‟?http://bigbible.org.uk/digidisciple/
