Screen, body, space and text - Media-edu-cology 2.0?

By Klaus Thestrup, Christian Dalsgaard & Francesco Caviglia, associate professors at The Danish School of Education, Aarhus University, Denmark

Our paper is based upon a ten year old master called Ict-based educational design, where mainly practitioners develop ways to use digital technologies and digital media in different kinds of education. They plan and try out if what they have intended might work. The master is mainly online, which means our student are spreads out over the country and that our education therefore is digitally based. Over the years we have developed different ways of communicating, experimenting and producing together in media edu-cologies, that in principle might change according to needs and curiosity. Examples are the use of blogs, where students produce texts and comment on each other’s work, annotate and write together in common documents and finally work in flexible combinations of media.

1o years ago we technically tried to build our own edu-cology but has over the years started to use existing digital tools in new combinations and on pedagogical processes, where the students over time experience and reflect together using their own practice as their tool to do so. Recently we are developing media edu-cologies, which include space, body, workspaces and mobile media in processes, that could be global. The edu-cology to reach out to each other locally, regionally and globally and communicate can take place in so many other ways than looking at a stationary screen and write text to each other. We dare to call this for media-edu-cology 2.0 and would like to present examples and principles, that encircles some possible future developments.
