Researching digital media and learner lives

This seminar, based on a series of case studies with younger learners, explores the arguments for shifting the focus of research into education and technology away from specific devices and artefacts and into an engagement with the lived culture and new literacy practices of the digital age. I will draw on a set of research experiences, tracing the trajectory from a doctoral study of young children's video-editing practices through to others which research both learner lives and the possible interrelationships between media production and educational experiences. There will be opportunities to look at research data, videos and other kinds of work by children and young people, particularly those in which children are agentive in cultural forms which are significant to them.
