Social Identity and Mobile Technology

Connecting 2 the World

The focus of this post is on defining social identity as it relates to mobile technology. Cell phones and mobile technology has created a new level of social identity in which a person does not have to physically be present to categorize themselves or play a role expected when they perceive themselves as part of a group. In other words, mobile technology allows for a constructed social identity based on social asperations rather than physical social inclusion.

Milgram''s question was, how many someones are in the chain?'' (Watts, 2003, p38.)

Spirals of Innovation in Schools – From Pockets of Excellence to Sustained Change from Beth Holland

EdTechTeacher

To be successful in a knowledge economy, students will require the ability to complete non-routine tasks, solve unstructured problems, and employ technologies for communication, collaboration, and creation (Autor, & Price, 2013; Collet, Hine, & Plessis, 2015).

The New Media Consortium: its sudden death and what comes next

Bryan Alexander

Shortly after receiving this Campus Technology asked for my reaction. Can we use our imagination and technology to build something new in the NMC’s ruins?

This is the third in a series of blog posts on the future of learning and technology.

techlearning

As innovators and early adopters of emerging technology we often find ourselves in the situation to help our colleagues. How do we best help them to understand the value of new technology and how it might benefit their students lives (rather than how might it help my fit into their classroom). How do we ask colleagues to adopt technology and help them to adapt the technology without putting our hands on their keyboard or their mouse and doing it for them. 2003).

“The whole idea,” he told CNN in 2003, “is to look at the television camera and present as much love as you possibly could to a person who might feel that he or she needs it.” Fred Rogers’ attitude toward electronic media perfectly mirrored the love/hate relationship many of us have with technology today.
