We’ve just given a presentation and workshop at the 20th SEDA conference in Leeds, and it seemed to go off pretty well. As part of the presentation we asked people to draw maps of their own work, marking in places, devices and also times and movements, to get them to see just how powerful this technique has been for starting conversations and providing material for analysis. This led to some really interesting questions and discussions, about the connections between the digital and paper-based literacies, and about whether the kinds of coping strategies that students adopt are new because of the digital, or have always been this complicated.
The programme has been really well represented at this event, with the professional bodies and DIAL projects also presenting.
Update: Myles Danson was blogging from our talk and has put up a nice and very thorough post about it. Thanks! 🙂
