Questioning Culture and Technology: Students’ Stories at DML Conference | Spotlight on Digital Media and Learning

3.23.12 | 
Referring to themselves as A Tribe Called Locke, the students build on Paolo Freire’s critical pedagogy theory to interrogate the meaning of culture and how technology relates to it. They do so by asking three questions: what is culturally relevant curriculum; how is technology used in curriculum; and how is Facebook used as a learning tool.

 

The video kicks off with students trading off stories spoken-word style, offering insight into the obstacles many kids face—from a lack of working computers to a lack of understanding of how smartphones and other personal devices can be used as learning tools.
