Connected Minds, Emerging Cultures

Cybercultures in Online Learning

Author: Steve Wheeler

ISBN: 1607528355

Category: Computers

Page: 305

As the title indicates, this book highlights the shifting and emergent features that represent life online, specifically in and around the territory of elearning. Cybercultures in themselves are complex conglomerations of ideas, philosophies, concepts, and theories, some of which are fiercely contradictory. As a construct, "cyberculture" is a result of sustained attempts by diverse groups of people to make sense of multifarious activities, linguistic codes, and practices in complicated and everchanging settings. It is an impossibly convoluted field. Any valid understanding of cyberculture can only be gained from living within it, and as Bell suggests, it is "made up of people, machines and stories in everyday life." Although this book contains a mix of perspectives, as the chapters progress, readers should detect some common threads. Technologymediated activities are featured throughout, each evoking its particular cultural nuances and, as Derrick de Kerckhove (1997) has eloquently argued, technology acts as the skin of culture. All the authors are passionate about their subjects, every one engages critically with his or her topics, and each is fully committed to the belief that elearning is a vitally important component in the future of education. All of the authors believe that digital learning environments will contribute massively to the success of the information society we now inhabit. Each is intent on exploration of the touchstone of "any time, any place" learning where temporal and spatial contexts cease to become barriers to learning, and where the boundaries are blurring between the formal and informal. This book is divided into four sections. In Part I, which has been titled "Digital Subcultures," we begin an exploration of “culture” and attempt to locate the learner within a number of digital subcultures that have arisen around new and emerging technologies such as mobile and handheld devices, collaborative online spaces, and podcasting. The chapters in this section represent attempts by the authors to demonstrate that there are many subdivisions present on the Web, and that online learners cannot and should not be represented as one vast amorphous mass of "Internet" users.

Mobilit t, Flexibilit t und Unabh ngigkeit haben sich in den vergangenen Jahren zu den zentralen Charaktereigenschaften der heutigen Gesellschaft entwickelt. Die mobile Kommunikation passte sich fortw hrend diesem Trend an, weshalb auch die mobilen Endger te zunehmend an Bedeutung gewinnen. Mit einer Penetrationsrate von ber 106 Prozent hat die mobile Kommunikation ber alle Bev lkerungsschichten hinweg die Verbreitung von Internet oder Festnetzanschl ssen bertroffen. Demzufolge sind mobile Endger te l ngst deutlich st rker als andere Kommunikationsger te verbreitet. Dabei beschr nkt sich die mobile Kommunikation gegenw rtig keinesfalls mehr nur auf die reine bertragung von Sprache. Mit dem starken Penetrationsschub der mobilen Endger te ging ein Wandel des Mobilfunkmarktes einher, der neben der reinen Sprach bertragung nunmehr insbesondere eine bertragung von multimedialen Daten erlaubt. In Verbindung mit immer leistungsf higer werdenden bertragungsstandards im Mobilfunk und der zunehmenden Verbreitung mobiler Endger te r cken auch Mobile-Marketing-Aktivit ten in den Fokus der Marketer. In einer Zeit, die sich sowohl durch eine starke Reiz- und Informations berflutung als auch durch ihre Schnelllebigkeit auszeichnet, liegt es regelrecht auf der Hand, das mobile Endger t aus Unternehmenssicht f r zielgruppengenaue Marketing-Aktivit ten zu verwenden. Das ist vor allem damit zu begr nden, dass dieses sehr pers nliche Medium mittlerweile nicht nur als Kommunikations-, sondern auch als Werbeinstrument im Rahmen des Mobile Marketings genutzt werden kann. Bislang haben Mobile-Marketing-Akteure das mobile Endger t fast ausschlie lich f r Ank ndigungen in Form von Sprachmitteilungen oder zur bermittlung von SMS-/MMS-Botschaften genutzt. Doch im Zuge der anhaltenden Weiterentwicklung mobiler Technologien haben sich eine Vielzahl von Mobile-Marketing-Instrumenten aufgetan, die es beispielsweise erlauben, mobile Gutscheine ber Applikationen oder mobile Websites zu verb

Das Thema Autismus hat in den letzten Jahren eine erhebliche Konjunktur erlebt. Nicht zuletzt eine Fülle autobiografischer Berichte Betroffener über autistisches Wahrnehmen, Denken und Handeln hat die weit verbreitete klinisch-pathologisierende Sicht von Autismus in Frage gestellt. Das Buch will die Sichtweisen von autistischen Personen verstehen und mit wissenschaftlichen Erkenntnissen vor allem aus dem Bereich der Neurowissenschaften abgleichen. Dabei werfen neurowissenschaftliche Erkenntnisse ein ganz neues Licht auf die Fähigkeiten und Intelligenz von Menschen im Autismus-Spektrum. Die dabei herausgearbeiteten Merkmale werden dann von autistischen Personen selbst - gewissermaßen aus der "Innensicht" - beleuchtet: Wahrnehmungsbesonderheiten, unübliches Lernverhalten, fokussiertes Denken, Schwierigkeiten bei der Kommunikation und sozialen Interaktion usw.

Drawing on research in the social sciences, communications, and other fields, this book wants to analyze how the online environment is influencing the experience of psychology. However, understanding how the Internet is changing our everyday experience presents a substantial challenge for the psychologists.

The contributions in this book are among the first scientific attempts to take a serious look at various aspects of Internet-related psychology. However, we need not start from scratch. Psychology has a broad knowledge about the factors that affect human behaviour in other setting. So, the papers collected for this book are descriptive and practical-oriented in nature.

What's Wrong with Education - and What Should We Do about It?

Author: Paul Kelley

Publisher: Routledge

ISBN: 1134122896

Category: Education

Page: 200

Making Minds is a controversial critique of our education systems. The author is a school leader ‘at the forefront of scientific and technological advancement in schools’ who, as an American, ‘felt comfortable taking on the British establishment’ (The Times Educational Supplement). Making Minds is written for general readers- especially parents- as well as educational professionals. The book examines the underlying limitations that have been accepted in education over the past two thousand years. The author challenges common assumptions about education through evidence-based, political, ethical, and emotional arguments, as well as examining case studies such as university admissions and the autism ‘epidemic’. Making Minds describes a more productive scientific approach to learning, drawing on recent research findings, particularly in the US and UK. The author illustrates how new research methods, new technologies, and very recent discoveries in neuroscience that will, in the end, allow us to make minds.
