The Apparent and the Existent

A ‘tumblog’ exploration towards the development of learning ‘objects’ in digital culture The separation of the apparent [seeming, not proven real] and the existent [present, a real thing] provides the founding argument for my tumblog exploration of learning in digital culture. Berger (2010, p.9) tells us that “appearances are volatile” and that “technological innovation has [...]

Cognosphere – Agency of Information?

This also asks the question, if ‘a thing’ has Agency, how does Agency re-interpret that ‘things’ [...]

Week Ten #ededc

Week ten has been a little of a struggle, but that struggle has resulted in me (hopefully) finding my final assignment topic “Location & Idenity within the Agency of 21st C learning”. This topic very much combines topics cross #ededc and, I think, will extend on work I carried out in Learning Futures (previous course). [...]
