Week 1: February 1, 2022
Notes: I should introduce myself
- We'll keep meeting online
Discuss reading; conceptual overview of the course
Who are you?
I view identity as authored in context: we are who we decide to be in a particular situation, to the extent we can pull it off. Who are you showing up here as?
What brings you here?
What do you hope to learn in this course? What is your research about? How do you hope this course advances your work as a scholar and/or educator?
Hanging out, messing around, geeking out
- Digital ethnography
- Media ecology
- Genre of participation
- Networked publics
- New media literacies
Is this still relevant?
What work needs to be done now?
- Major assignments
- Come to class every week with an argument, with something to say.
Next Week: Computational thinking
We will read Grover & Pea (2013), which summarizes the state CS (as of 2013), as well as Denning (2017), who identifies remaining "trouble spots" with computational thinking.
