Learning through Critical Making
In this video, we explore new learning ecologies using the lens of ‘read/write’ culture, or ‘remix’ culture, tracing these terms of engagement back to Ted Nelson and Tim Berners Lee and the politics of ‘Web 2.0’ . This video looks at how dramatically-transformed technological, social, and cultural landscapes provide opportunities for networked and collaborative forms of ‘situated learning’ today, where learner agency and use-value are central to deep learning and cultural participation. Here, technocratic curricular forms from the era of broadcast media, which still largely dominate teaching and assessment practices today, are being challenged by new modes of engagement, new actor roles and orientations to dynamic media tools, and new forms of authentic, digitally-mediated production and sharing.
