call for proposals: designing learning futures

A renewed emphasis on participatory forms of digitally-mediated production is transforming our social landscape. ‘Making’ has become the dominant metaphor for a variety of digital and digitally-mediated practices. The web is exploding with independently produced digital ‘content’ such as video diaries, conversations, stories, software, music, video games—all of which are further transformed and morphed by “modders,” “hackers,” artists and activists who redeploy and repurpose corporately-produced content. Equally, communities of self-organized crafters, hackers, and enthusiasts are increasingly to be found online exchanging sewing and knitting patterns, technical guides, circuit layouts, detailed electronics tutorials and other forms of instruction and support. Many of these individuals and collaborators understand their work to be socially interventionist. Through practices of design, development, and exchange they challenge traditional divides between production and consumption and to redress the power differentials built into technologically-mediated societies.

Exploring Produsage: A Special Issue of New Review of Hypermedia and Multimedia

Call for papers: The concept of produsage points to
the shift away from conventional producer/consumer relationships,
and highlights the more fluid roles of users and contributors within
social media environments. Participants in open source projects, in
/Wikipedia/, in /YouTube/ and /Second Life/ are no longer merely
consuming or using preproduced material, but neither are they at all
times acting as fully self-determined producers of fully formed new
works; rather, they occupy a hybrid position as produsers of content. Read the rest of this entry »

The Communication Review special issue: “Twitter Revolutions?  Addressing Social Media and Dissent”
Volume 14, Issue 2 (2011); From the ECREA List:

“The Internet, YouTube, Twitter and Facebook have reconstituted, especially among young people, how social relationships are constructed and how communication is produced, mediated, and received. They have also ushered in a new regime of visual imagery in which screen culture creates spectacular events just as much as they record them.  Under such circumstances, state power becomes more porous and less controlled (…) Read the rest of this entry »

Call for papers: ‘digital technologies and educational integrity’ for a special issue of the online refereed journal IJEI; Edited by Chris Moore and Ruth Walker, University of Wollongong

This special issue of the International Journal for Educational Integrity (IJEI) seeks articles that address the impact of digital technologies on educational integrity. Many different terms have emerged in an attempt to capture the shifting terrain of media use and users in various networked environments: ‘social’, ‘participatory’, ‘user-generated’ or simply ‘new’ media. Common to the online interactive spaces of Web2.0 is the challenge of technologies and practices that are capable of changing the way we teach, learn, and share knowledge. How can we best engage and support students and colleagues coming to terms with the dynamics of these technologies and the development of new literacies? Read the rest of this entry »
