Fire Next Time: Or Revisioning Higher Education in the Context of Digital Social Creativity
Kupiainen, Reijo; Suoranta, Juha; Vaden, Tere
E-Learning, v4 n2 p128-137 2007
This article presents an idea of "digital social creativity" as part of social media and examines an approach emphasising openness and experimentation and collaborative learning in the world of information and communication technologies. Wikipedia and similar digital tools provide both challenges to and possibilities for building learning sites in higher education and other forms of education and socialisation that recognise various forms of information and knowledge creation. The dialogical nature of knowledge and the emphasis on social interaction create a tremendous opportunity for education, but at the same time form new hegemonic battlegrounds in terms of various uses of social media.
