Curating Media Learning: Towards a Porous Expertise
McDougall, Julian; Potter, John
E-Learning and Digital Media, v12 n2 p199-211 Mar 2015
This article combines research results from a range of projects with two consistent themes. Firstly, we explore the potential for curation to offer a productive metaphor for the convergence of digital media learning across and between home/lifeworld and formal educational/system-world spaces--or between the public and private spheres. Secondly, we draw conclusions from these projects to argue that the acceptance of transmedia literacy practices as a site for rich educational work--in media education and related areas--can only succeed if matched by a convergence of a more "porous" educator-student expertise.
