    21. 23. Goals of Pachyderm: <ul><li>To create a new, open source authoring environment for creators of web-based and multimedia learning experiences. </li></ul><ul><li>Central to the Pachyderm 2.0 Project is the development of an interoperable, robust, easily distributable version of Pachyderm that will be open-source and include a wide range of pedagogical templates. </li></ul><ul><li>The learning materials created with Pachyderm 2.0 will be optimized for Internet delivery, </li></ul><ul><li>To be easily reusable, and conformant with key search, archival, and cataloging standards. </li></ul>

    40. 42. Concept Maps <ul><li>VUE, Pachyderm and 3D Concept Maps </li></ul>
    41. 43. <ul><li>The visualization of data, information, connections and relationships has become an important aspect of media production </li></ul><ul><li>However the integration of a variety of rich media, and the multimodality of input, leads also at times to a confusing search to understand how ideas and concepts, amassed in a seemingly non-hierachical, non-linear web environment, may be ordered, and harnessed into a conceptual frame that could easily be visualized. </li></ul><ul><li>The resulting visualization may well serve to catalyse a re-ordering of concepts and information, leading to a truly grounded approach to develop new insights. </li></ul>
    42. 44. <ul><li>The one application that we want to demonstrate to you is the integration of VUE (an open source mind/concept mapping tool developed by Tufts University) with Pachyderm which is an open source rich media web authoring environment and was developed by a consortium of Museums and Universities together with the New Media Consortium </li></ul><ul><li>http://vue.tufts.edu </li></ul>

    52. 54. <ul><li>In Conclusion </li></ul><ul><li>Participatory Media Literacy - A Paradigm Shift </li></ul><ul><li>Participatory pedagogy … engagement of the learner </li></ul><ul><li>Visual literacy – engagement with media and their power of presentation understanding a “visual rhetoric” </li></ul><ul><li>Collaborative learning – teach less - learn more – re-creation -- networks of imagination </li></ul><ul><li>A new mode of reading -- becoming part of the text --- enables questions of representation, perception, and cognition in relation to the production of meaning </li></ul>
