Digital Citizenship - Jason Ohler
So I'm throwing my notes out to the ether in raw form. Apologies for the errors, but I'll never get this blogging thing down if I wait for perfection.
Copyright is not the primary issue
- redifining community
- study what we use - with any tech or technique we should look at the impact, the value the cost
- articulate our fears
- write a new story
Every technology connects and disconnects
- we fail to see the disconnect and understand the critical effects of any tech
- What would the warning label be on the tech we adopt, how does it affect us socially, personally, physically. Shine a flashlight the tools and see the scope of their impact.
Why are we uncomfortable with tech.
- It's ubiquitous
- it's invasive
- it's rapidly changing
- it's resocializing
- sovereignty - who controls whom
- technology is determining human endeavor - if you have the internet you will surf, if you have a car you will drive whether we need to or not.
We can have what we want
- If you can have what we want we can have the school we want
- It's not about the gear the it's about the story, what is the story we want to tell about our schools. We have to engage proactively.
- Disocciated action (place) many activities independent of where we are physcially
- leveraged action (power) we can use a tool without seeing the effect
- generalized action (anyone) ownership rights, copy right, asking the open ended questions about our digital actions
