The Phenomenology of Participation: Derrida and the Future of Pedagogy

“Hospitality in the classroom and digital pedagogical practices encourage participatory pedagogy and collective action. This model of learning and teaching emphasizes the shared responsibility between all members to contribute to...”Critical digital pedagogues and hospitality-based classrooms reject hierarchical power structures that privilege a binary relationship between teachers and students and academia and a wider public; they reject logocentric knowledge-making that insists on single medium composition practices, single meaning interpretations, and single, academic-only audiences. Indeed, as Sean Michael Morris has argued, digital writing is a rebellion embodied by différance.

Like Derrida’s theory of language, critical digital pedagogy encourages the freeplay of intellectual rigor; it acknowledges discourse as communal, the multiplicity of decentered learning environments, and collaborative construction; it rethinks the materials of communication and the mutability of meaning; it celebrates the networked nature of the critical work of learning, teaching, and being.

The Rice Process's curator insight, May 14, 6:11 PM

"Hospitality in the classroom radically rethinks the “territory” of the learning space because it alters the rights and obligations of both students and teachers". The notion of hospitality speaks the host's  openness, welcoming, inviting, and .caring nature. Hospitality elevates the learning space.

Excellent Interactive Graphic on The Networked Educator | Complexity thinking and learning | Scoop.it

Being a networked educator is not simply about how many connections you are making to how good these connections are to your overall professional growth. You might be spending several hours a day surfing the web but with no tangible benefit to your intellectual and professional development. How we build our online connections do have a bearing on the shaping of our knowledge and with this increasing state of connectedness available through social media websites, it becomes highly important for us in the field of education to reassess our connections and work towards a better and educationally healthy ways of connecting with other like minded educators from all around the globe.

A university is looking at analysing emails from students to staff to detect negative comments. Is this pastoral care, or 'scary ethics'?
Alan Ovens's insight:

There was a time when we called this pastoral care and took time to guide students into the behaviours that help them succeed at tertiary study. In one sense I feel this is a return to that, but obvious concerns about privacy need to be addressed.

Via Ana Cristina Pratas, Shirley Moody, Gust MEES, GSeremetakis, Katharina Kulle, John Evans
Alan Ovens's insight:

The revised Bloom's taxonomy continues to be a popular way of conceptualising learning. It's problematic for me in as much as it promotes learning as acquisition of knowledge and doesn't include any aspect of embodied action such as performance or resilience. However, in presenting the taxonomy in a circular form the diagram enables recognition that learners engage different cognitive activities in the process of learning.

Alan Ovens's insight:

Really interesting to rethink the concept of learing from a rhizomatic perspective.  Too often our deep assumption is that learning is the acquisition of something that is transmitted to us from the teacher.  Complexity challenges this idea, particularly in the sense of uncertainty and reorganisation of the system to embody its history and attune itself to its environment.

The Maker Movement and the Rebirth of Constructionism - Hybrid Pedagogy

The Maker Movement and the Rebirth of Constructionism - Hybrid Pedagogy | Complexity thinking and learning | Scoop.it
The culmination of my quest for more powerful learning grounded in theory and research came when recently I conducted an experiment in pushing constructionism into the digital age.

 

Constructionism is based on two types of construction. First, it asserts that learning is an active process, in which people actively construct knowledge from their experience in the world. People don’t get ideas; they make them. This aspect of construction comes from the constructivist theory of knowledge development by Jean Piaget. To Piaget’s concept, Papert added another type of construction, arguing that people construct new knowledge with particular effectiveness when they are engaged in constructing personally meaningful products.

Imagine my surprise and joy when I realized that I had arrived at constructionism prior to knowing that such a theory even existed. I believe that thousands of other educators are unknowingly working within the constructionist paradigm as well. Although many within the Maker movement are aware that it has it’s roots in constructionism, the movement is gaining impressive momentum without the majority of Makers realizing that there is a strong theoretical foundation behind their work.

 

After I came to understand this connection between my practices and the supporting theoretical framework I was better able to focus and refine my practice. Even more importantly, I felt more confident and powerful in forging ahead with further experiments in the learning situations I design for my learners.
