Digital literacies 5: Remix in the classroom

e-Moderation Station

Remix? Our job to teach language, not mess around with digital stuff…” Giving regular workshops about digital literacies, this is a reaction that I often get when we talk about remix literacy, arguably one of the more complex of the literacies. What is remix literacy?

Re-purposing, poetry and plagiarism

Jenny Connected

it would be a great shame if, in our rush to lynch a couple of plagiarists and their misguided ideas of “patchwork”, “sampling” and “remixing”, we forget to remember why poetry needs experimentation.

Information overload and connectivity

Jenny Connected

On one side we are urged to increase our connectivity – we are told that all learning starts with a connection, to learn we need to be well connected, to keep up in a fast moving digital age we need to know how to filter, select, aggregate, remix, repurpose, feed forward.

Rhizomatic Learning and Ethics

Jenny Connected

Remixing and repurposing, within copyright restrictions is not cheating. Dave Cormier in his open course on rhizomatic learning, which started on Tuesday of this week – has asked us in his video to think about/discuss ‘cheating as learning’.

cMOOCs and xMOOCs – key differences

Jenny Connected

Key activities in cMOOCs are remixing and repurposing , i.e. that content will be created, ideally co-created , through interaction with freely available open resources.

Is structure counter to cMOOC philosophy?

Jenny Connected

I don’t see that the principles of connectivism – autonomy, diversity, openness and interaction across distributed platforms, or the key activities of cMOOCs – aggregate, remix, repurpose, feedforward, necessarily militate against structure or a curriculum. This was a question that came out of our FSLT12 Research Review meeting today.

The reality of working with soft and hard technologies

Jenny Connected

The project is basically working with hard technologies, although it is making some concessions to ‘softness’, in that it is writing the training materials in such a way that users can add their own materials and to a very limited extent remix and repurpose them. Jon Dron’s presentation to ChangeMOOC this week is very timely. I am working on a University funded project to develop training materials which will be used around the country to deliver school training on a given topic.

Assessment of discussion forum posts in ModPo

Jenny Connected

I have already accepted that ModPo is not completely open, simply because it is tied to the Coursera platform and therefore does not have ‘open’ resources in the original cMOOC sense of participants being able to aggregate, remix, repurpose and feed forward resources at will. Today I am disappointed in ModPo for the first time. Because, I realize that it has fallen into the trap of believing that requiring posts to a discussion forum can in some way measure the success of learning.

Alec talked about digital citizenship in terms of Cyber-safety (keeping safe and being able to discern truth from hoaxes and myths); Memes (value laden digital viruses); Copyright/copyleft (we used to consume information, now we produce, remix, share); Network Literacy; Identity (81% of children under the age of two have some form of digital footprint and some even have a footprint before birth); and Activism.

It is also based on the activities of aggregation, remixing, repurposing and feeding forward the resources and learning that are part of the MOOC experience.

What poets can tell us about ‘openness’ and ‘sharing’

Resources would also be openly shared with the possibility of aggregation, remixing, repurposing and feeding forward. The ModPo MOOC ( Modern and Contemporary American Poetry ) is surprising me in many ways, but mostly because in the poems we have studying in Weeks 1 and 2, there seem to be so many connections with my research into online teaching and learning.

This would, through the aggregation, remixing, repurposing and feeding forward of resources shared and created, enrich the learning experience.
