Finished my chapter for Rebekah and David's book: DIGITAL GENERATIONS. My chapter is called 'Hello newbie! *big welcome hugs* hope u like it here as much as i do!' An exploration of teenagers’ informal online learning.
It is about teenagers online and Communities of Practice and was based on a paper I gave last July (ages ago.) Aaaanyway I had to change a few bits (take out all references to school education) so now it has gone, hopefully never to return to me.
You may like to know I have referred to Anya's paper here a couple of times.
I am very excited as in two weeks will be meeting up with Sandra Weber.
She is really fab, I met her at the Digital generations conference last summer.
She has written a book about dresses.
Yes she has.
(I found this picture here!!)
But not only that ... she also is looking at the whole phenomenon of The PROM.
So it is a project about the prom dress and prom experiences and much more.
AND there is THIS PERFORMANCE PIECE about the academic robe.
So good. (You would not believe the laughs we have about gowns on graduation days!! We all have to put our gowns on and walk importantly on the stage as Mums and Dads (etc.) of people graduating take photos. We all love it really. Pomp and circumstance - so to speak.)
Ain't Cultural Studies great?
I bet you want to do some of her courses now don't you?
Well off I go now to vote Labour.
They better get in I tell you.
