New media, networks and new pedagogies.
It is easy to argue that much of the rhetoric attached to =B3new media=B2 and
the internet in relation to pedagogy has mistaken quantity for quality. It
has been a conversation that has confused the qualitative changes that our
new conceptions of media, knowledge, and networks afford with the
quantitative changes beloved of those who confuse teaching and learning wit=
instruction and consumption. These new qualities are the differences betwee=
the vector and commodity, blogs and books.
However, imagine if our universities had been invented now. What would
pedagogy be? What form would teaching and learning take? What would count a=
knowledge? Expertise? What forms would this knowledge take?
Taking this as a departure this issue of the Fibreculture Journal invites
those working in new media, internet studies, education, and cognate
disciplines to discuss the strengths and celebrate the possibilities that
new media and its networks affords teaching and learning. The emphasis in
this issue is not on the criticism or description of existing models and
paradigms but to invite the exploration and celebration of new
possibilities, real or imagined. What new knowledge formations should there
be? How would they be taught? How could they assessed (if at all)? What
critical academic work, and in what forms, would our students be producing?
Submissions are welcomed in any relevant format, including essay, hypertext=
interactive time based media, projects, or imaginary annotated curricula.
