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.

"This is the first post of a research inquiry that questions the ways in which we have understood the Youth-Technology-Change relationship in the contemporary digital world, especially through the identity of ‘Digital Native’. Drawing from three years of research and current engagements in the field, the post begins a critique of how we need to look at the outliers, the people on the fringes in order to unravel the otherwise celebratory nature of discourse about how the digital is changing the world."
