Things to do: Week 3

  • This is the week when you should begin thinking about your own take or mindset on digital culture and education. I'm using the term culture broadly to point to the patterns of practices, the assumptions about the world and the way in which education, in particular, is positioned within "the digital".
  • The key element of your mindset are the questions you have. These are so, so, so important. Your questions won't be the same as mine or someone else in the course. That does not mean you know more or less. It means you work in a different setting, you have a different background, and you have been thinking about different things. Read the questions page and then pop a question or two on the Slack site.
  • Look at the notes for this week's readings as you read each of the papers.
  • Check to see what you have not been able to get done in week 2. If you are having any problems/trouble contact Chris.
  • You should have begun to write in your notebook about the focus or topic that you imagine, at this stage, you'd like to concentrate on in this course. The main thing is to choose something that is narrow, small and remember you are not doing a PhD or a ten year study but a one trimester course! Write on the Slack site about your thinking or email Chris if you feel uncomfortable writing about it in public just yet. This wiki is the other place to flag your particular interests.
  • And, this week and the remaining weeks of the course is the time to privilege questions.
