Mobilising Ethnographers Investigating Technologised Learning
Landri, Paolo
Ethnography and Education, v8 n2 p239-254 2013
This paper intends to problematise understandings of the ethnographer's presence in investigating contemporary forms of technologised learning. The ubiquity of new educational technologies raises questions concerning the spaces of education and learning, and challenges, at the same time, the sense of "being there" in terms of the face-to-face interactions fundamental in "standard" descriptions of educational ethnography. This paper--drawing theoretically on sociomaterial studies of education and on the description and comparison of two ethnographic accounts--proposes to consider ethnographer's presence while studying contemporary forms of technologised learning as embodied, distributed and mobile.
