Digital Media & Learning Conference: Christopher Hoadley presenting; Dixie attending!


Chris Hoadley will be presenting at the Digital Media and Learning Conference (DML) in Chicago. The panel he is presenting on is MAKE, DO, ENGAGE: HACKER LITERACIES AND CIVIC PARTICIPATION.  The panel is specifically exploring maker/hacker culture, and what it can teach us about participatory learning and meaning making. “This panel investigates the convergence of participatory acumen and civic activity by focusing on the concept of ‘hacker literacies’ — how this construct might be defined, how it might be researched ‘in the wild,’ and how learning interventions can being designed to cultivate it…. Chris Hoadley, Associate Professor of Educational Technology at New York University, will discuss the role of indigenous design to allow capacity building for self-determination at the local and national levels based on his work in South Asia.”
