A digital identity question for parents

January 09, 2009

An interesting question is raised by a Design Pattern problem, Others First, identified by Yishay Mor in the Pattern Language Network wiki: Parents who create an online identity for themselves that includes any images of and text about their children inevitably create an online identity for those children. The children have no control over how they are presented or ...

Everyone's case studies are lodged over at the Pattern Language Network site, along with Yishay's Slidedeck pattern language tutorial on writing a case study. It also moves forward some observations I made in my ...

Immersive interfaces for learning

January 08, 2009

Another very useful Berkman talk on Immersive Interfaces by Chris Dede, Timothy E Wirth professor of Learning Technologies at the Harvard Graduate School of Education.  Dede develops a typology of immersive interfaces and illustrates their application in US middle schools. Even more usefully he presents a simple analytical framework for discussing immersive environments for learning: is it an ...

Epigenetic phenomena

January 06, 2009

Thanks and a(nother) tippo to A J Cann for the link (via his soti bookmarks on delicious) to D’arcy Norman’s epigenetics and the institution. This hit me as an approach to conceptualising the relationship between individuals and institutions for a paper I am puzzling over writing, about the utility of participatory media (Web2.0/the social internet) to the support, ...

Participatory media literacy: it does matter

January 05, 2009

This post is one small link in a chain started for me by A J Cann in a post on his Emerge blog, The P word, fed from Science of the Invisible that linked to Michael Wesch’s post, Participatory Media Literacy: why it matters, referring to “… Howard Rheingold’s great little article, Participative Pedagogy for a Literacy of ...

Feeding the Elgg

January 05, 2009

Since my exchange with A J Cann, about feeding selected posts to the Emerge site, I have started this blog. In it, I have created a number of categories for my posts, such as “Community IT Centre”, and “R&D Projects” and “Emerge”. I wanted to be able to select only those posts that were tagged “Emerge” and feed ...

Twitter allegiance

December 24, 2008

In the spirit of passing time at Christmas, and following on from a heated discussion about the meaning and robustness of community in online environments, I invited 100 of my 1,276 current Twitter followers to fill in a quick survey cunningly designed to provide a fairly wonky measure of community allegiance. Of course I welcome critical feedback about ...

Edublog Awards

December 19, 2008

I am sure all the people in the U&I/JISC Emerge community who keep and read blogs already know about the "Eddies": the annual Edublog awards, but if, like me, you spend too much time under stones down the bottom of the garden, you might have missed it. Our own Graham Attwell and Cristina Costa are hosting an awards party ...
