This is a new collaborative project I have started with colleagues from Australia and the US. Our site details ongoing reading, projects that are just beginning to gert off the ground and our collaborators. It explains our double focus: examining the structural role of digital platforms and how they pedagogicise us and their users; and the role of platforms in and across education systems and institutions.
We want to explore what it means to conceive:
- of the relationship between people and their platforms as a pedagogic relationship,
- and how such conceptualisations might advance study of platforms in general.
And, additionally, using the term pedagogy in its more specifically educational sense:
- to explore the relationship between learning, schooling and education systems as they are now moving into and across emerging platforms,
- thus, advancing scholarship about the uses of platforms in Education.
