Does reviewing tech on my youtube channel count as digital culture?#mscedc
— Eli's inane rambling (@Eli_App_D) January 30, 2017
We learn in so many ways and in so many environments but does or should one carry more authenticity than another? If we are thinking about a journal article while we do the dishes, does that carry less value than thinking about a journal article in the library or in the classroom? Does one subject carry more value than another, surely learning is learning and the act itself holds value regardless of content learned?
Digital culture is a wide net and education could, in theory, be just as wide. Although if you have read any of Gert Biesta’s work on the language of learning, you may want to question the use of the words education and the learning. I believe learning and education are not just for classrooms and I embrace the digital culture of the current world, therefore I have a youtube channel and a blog where you can learn all sorts of things which I have deemed interesting enough that I want to share.
So feel free to go learn how to make elderflower champagne, or how to make a challah bread but in return, I have a challenge for my MSCEDC classmates, what do you have to teach? Go out into the digital and share some “mad skillz” and tweet me. Linzi maybe you should do that pirouette video for your students?
