Knowledge production dynamics and communicative practices
The temptation to see the educational landscape of the digital age as presenting us with communication practices that redefine social relations is powerful. In classrooms and at home, in institutions and in private, in the professional and personal spheres, in static/designed learning spaces or on the go, or locally and globally, people can now interact more often, faster, with more people at once. They can interact through different media and making use of more modes of communication. In such an all-encompassing context, educators are challenged to make sense of the participation, interaction and collaboration practices that are pushing us forward. Thanks to digital technology, there are emerging models of knowledge construction taking place. Teaching and learning practices and knowledge production are interdependent processes, though we do not always acknowledge that in our everyday educational experiences.
This is the word cloud of the paper we have just presented for the call for papers: New learning scenarios from a transformative perspective. From global approaches to local proposals.
Fingers crossed for this one! It is an honor to co-author a paper with these guys: Danah Henriksen, Linda Castañeda, Marta Marimon, Elena Barberá, Carles Monereo, César Coll, Jabari Mahiri, Punya Mishra =)
