Welcome to Education and Digital Cultures 2017. This is my first post on this “Lifestream” blog.
The Course Guide is here for those who are interested in what’s going on with the frequency, type and source of the blogposts, here’s an extract to help put it all in context:
Half your final mark will be given for a lifestream:blog which you will set up and maintain over the 12 weeks of the course. A ‘lifestream’ (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lifestreaming)
is a means whereby an individual’s tweets, blog postings, image postings, YouTube favourites, and other feeds can be pulled together into a single blog stream. For this course,
you will be supported in setting up and maintaining a lifestream:blog in WordPress, which will bring together all the digital fragments of knowledge generated by your studies over the 12 weeks of semester. The visual artefact (block 1) and micro:ethnography (block 2) will feed into this, as will any blog postings and comments you make, or other web you choose
to include in the stream.
The lifestream is designed to demonstrate your engagement with the academic themes and content of the course – you are not expected to include personal and social content.
