Human Technology Collaborations
Saturday, October 15, 12:00 p.m. Alvin Johnson/J.M. Kaplan Hall, 66 West 12th Street, room 510
This panel discussion will address the growing number of technological innovations that proliferate in contemporary learning environments. As sites of innovation these technologies have shifted the discussion of technology and learning beyond relationships of instrumentality. The panel follows this shift in thinking to one where technologies are seen as heterogeneous contributors to learning and teaching that are changing how we form connections with peers, perceive boundaries, and negotiate diverse modalities in creation. Technological objects beyond their instrumentality are reconceptualized as collaborators within human-technology interactions to more fully comprehend their affordances, gaps, and hegemonies. In trying to understand these opportunities, the panel develops a multifaceted approach to assemble the social ontologies of human-technology collaborations. As a product of the panel presentation, the panel has set up a webpage to collect the stories of human-technological collaborations at http:// techcollaborations.posterous.com. To contribute to the text, images, or videos chronicling your story just send an email to email@example.com. Attachments to emails will post along with written content.
