Andreas Kuswara's curator insight, March 14, 2013 10:17 PM

The article is a good read to introduce some of the generic benefits of using iPad or any tablet that are widely available; most of the affordances specified in the article are generic across all devices that have tablet form-factor. But the last two, the issue of authentic assessment and the introduction of new model of self-directed learning and pedagogy require deeper thoughts as they are the kind of affordances that would not readily available out of the box.

Service learning as a third space in pre-service teacher education

Issues in Educational Research, 20(1), 2010. Special Edition on service learning


Service learning as a third space in pre-service teacher education 

Susanne Gannon, University of Western Sydney

 

This paper takes up the notion that service learning might be understood as a 'third space' (Bhabha, 1990, 1994; Soja, 1996) in teacher education. In work with young people designated as 'at risk' in and out of school, the metaphor of the third space evokes a hybrid, in-between, disruptive space that can operate to disturb normative or deficit perceptions and to disrupt pre-service teacher subjectivities. The 'third space' also draws attention to the centrality of embodied space and place in pedagogical encounters. This paper describes three of the service learning strands in the suite of opportunities available to secondary pre-service teacher at the University of Western Sydney, and, using participant reflections on these placements as data, it begins to trace material and metaphoric articulations of third space in teacher education.

Higher education is now getting the ‘participatory culture’ (see attached) students from secondary school who are used to:
Performance, simulation, appropriation, multitasking, distributed cognition, collective intelligence, judgement, trans-media navigation, networking, negotiation.

Social media’s influence on traditional qualitative research

note: to access this requires login

 

Abby Leafe, principal of New Leafe Research and a QRCA member, explained how the use of social media affected her research on digital dating violence. “As part of a project that had several components, I created a Facebook account that was somewhat personalized and friended the participants before conducting research. They saw me there like all their other friends. Being Facebook friends with the participants added a layer of friendliness and intimacy to the research. It got them to open up more,” Leafe says.

 

a very interesting article on how research, or at least social research has been affected because the society has been affected by affordances of web 2.0.
