New Opportunities for Media Enabled Learning through a Life-wide Curriculum

Page history last edited by Norman Jackson 11 years, 1 month ago

This ideas paper explores and tries to integrate two thematic ideas – the idea of life-wide learning and how the involvement of learners with digital media and the cultures of participation that some technologies spawn, has an essential role to play in the development and accomplishment of learners through their life-wide learning enterprises. New media technology is an important agent in facilitating learning and playful or productive social interaction through which new possibilities emerge. It helps people find out the things they need to find out in order to do the things they want to do. It enables people to broadcast their views, their creative products and performances and it encourages others to connect to, draw meaning from and engage with these personal expressions of being a human being. Combining these two ideas opens up new possibilities for higher education to recognise and value such forms of learning and self-expression as learners become who they want to be. In the world of life-wide education, new media technologies, such as audio and video become the essential agency for learning rather than the conduits for learning.
