Designing for digital literacies - LRDG seminar

Date: 9 June 2009 Time: 1.00 - 2.00 pm

Digital literacies - the social and material practices needed to understand the actual and potential function of digital technologies - are critical to contemporary knowledge societies and emergent digital economies. They are needed to enable creativity and the social innovation required to shape desirable and viable socio-technical change. They are also needed to motivate and inform critique and critical resistance around dangers arising from the increasingly pervasive power of computing (e.g. through the mapping, tracking and interrogating and datamining of virtual and physical mobilities). In this presentation I will discuss different approaches in ethnographically informed collaborative design that seek to address these challenges.
