Pinterest, Tumblr and the Trouble With ‘Curation’

Pinterest, Tumblr and the Trouble With ‘Curation’ | Technology Enabled Learning | Scoop.it
Who knew there was such a mainstream market for artfully arranged pictures of other people’s stuff?
Celine Llewellyn-Jones's insight:

There’s a German word for it, of course: Sehnsucht, which translates as “addictive yearning.” This is, I think, what these sites evoke: the feeling of being addicted to longing for something; specifically being addicted to the feeling that something is missing or incomplete. The point is not the thing that is being longed for, but the feeling of longing for the thing. And that feeling is necessarily ambivalent, combining both positive and negative emotions.

what is praxis?

what is praxis? | Technology Enabled Learning | Scoop.it

A definition of Praxis.  Can't believe it's only the second time I've come across this word (the first time was in a description of the work of drama students at the Centre of Speech and Drama in Camden).

 

Praxis is commited action.  Not only based on reflection but also a commitment to human well-being, the search for truth and respect for others.  What an unusal word!  But I would argue that an embodied learner would almost certainly be involved in Praxis.  I feel so good knowing what this is! 

 

Educators are involved with praxis: acts which shape and change the world. Adult education is 'education for use' (Lindeman 1944: 103). Yet few educators speak of praxis. Those that do tend to link it to the work of Freire.
