This year I was invited by SEDA to talk to delegates at their annual summer school about the idea of digital in an academic setting. As I’ve previously posted, I’m not a huge fan of the language in this area or the way I feel that technology is sometimes pushed over practice. I decided that it may be useful to frame a discussion about whether or not digital really is different based mainly on the ideas from the “Preparing for the Postdigital era” paper, and also on White and LeCornu’s work on the developing Visitor and Residents approach.
The embedded Slideshare below was not actually used, but was built as a means for me to construct the discussion. I hope that delegates will reflect on the discussion and post comments here to continue it.
