I love this graphic! Not only does it carry the eye casually through a beautiful collection of shapes and colors.... you get to learn something too. We've got Ito "geeking out" in the purple, O'Reilly in the mossy green and of course, no discussion of this brave new world would be complete without some Rheingold (green) and Jenkins (blue). If you are looking for an overview of media literacy and participatory culture, this is a great place to get started.
Sneaky, sneaky social media..they draw us in with the "likes" and the "pokes" but it turns out that these "low threshold" participations are valuable your digital learning community. The speaker is describing a set of tools at her university but the sentiment can be easily applied to understanding more common social media. Don't have time for the full 8 minutes? Watch it at 1.5 speed....
This graphic communicates both the freneticism and order in our highly connected lives. It highlights the notion that this new world we are living is driven by content creation and authentic purpose. Our best models for learning are "active, relevant, real-world, effective, hands-on, networked, innovative, personal, and transformative."
We have finally begun the shift away from the centuries long paradigm where information is transmitted from one to many. It will take some time for society to truly shed centuries of monologic authoritative teaching and learning but there is a light at the end of the tunnel. The rise of the mobile computing alongside widely accessible internet connections, has paved the way for widespread exposure to the "active, social, learner-driven" participatory learning paradigm.
John Dewey would be proud if he could see us now. This graphic gives me hope that we may finally have a fighting chance at knocking out Thorndike's factory model for education once and for all.
