Emerging Mondays Live Radio

Every month we are running 'Emerging Mondays' - a topical show combining the best of radio, live chat and occasionally some extravagant social activity inside Second Life. The aim is to bring lively commentary and debate on topical issues to the start of each month.


27th October 2008: Emerging Mondays: the Digital Identity show

'What is digital identity?'

So what does digital identity mean to you? Do you care? As more of our lives, from personal to professional activities, find their way online how do we cope with managing our fractured and distributed digital presence. Can we ever keep 'personal' separate from 'professional' when tools and services mash-up our online identities in ways that are beyond our control? What does this mean for the development of new literacies and new services that seek to put our identities back within our grasp.

With interviews, music, strong opinion, poetry, our very own edupunk granny Leila and more. LIVE. Guests include:

  • Steven Warburton - King's College London on the Eduserv sponsored Rhizome Identities project
  • Lars Heineman - Bremen University on cultural and vocational identities
  • Andy Powell - Eduserv
  • David White - Oxford University on identities in Second Life
  • Jenny Hughes - Pontydysgu - on how young children develop digital identities
  • Helen Keegan - Salford University on how audio and video students develop their online presence
  • Eileen Luebcke - Bremen University on culture and identities
  • Jenny Bimrose - University of Warwick - what is the role of careers guidance in developing identities

This months show features Steve Wheeler from Plymouth College talking about social software, Neil Oughton on using Wordpress to support students, Hank Horkoff from China Pod in Shanghai on Personal Learning Environments and language teaching and learning and of course our culture spot with the Last Poet in Oxford. We will be holding a regular ‘phone in’ slot over Skype and would love to welcome you live on the show.

If you are with us in Second Life then I will also be taking questions from the floor.

See you there :)
