Transcript of E-Learning & Digital Cultures (Artefact)

E-Learning & Digital Cultures Digital Artefact Technology is threatening us.

We will all become machines.

We will all be turned into mindless drones.

We're being controlled by evil devices that will someday replace us.

We are all being spied on. That's just in the movies, right? http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2187801/Were-watching-The-camera-recognise-Facebook-picture-time-walk-shop.html How far does
social change? Dystopia And it's going to get worse! Technology is BAD Is it possible that devices
we invent, can somehow change us? People don't talk anymore http://1811gpresources.wordpress.com/2012/05/07/facebook-vs-face-to-face-how-technology-threatens-parent-child-interaction-7-2/ E-Waste is choking the earth People don't exercise enough http://liversnacking.com/articles/is-your-computer-making-you-fat-tired-and-diabetic People worship the latest gadgets People don't see the world around them anymore But surely that's just science fiction? http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=HQ1z0Zzqg5U#! www.benditomachine.com Technological
Determinism - hunter/gatherer societies changed after
farm tools were invented.

- agrarian societies changed after the
machines of industrialisation came about.

- Information and Communication
technologies have globalised us. WHAT'S NEXT ?? !! Wait a minute. Isn't the
deterministic standpoint
simplifying things a bit
too much? Isn't it
generalising 'society'
and reducing all
technologies as if they
are one single cause? You're right. There are
so many more questions
we need to ask. What defines a society?

Are ALL humans being
affected by technology? Which humans and
which part of humanity
exactly, are these
machines taking? Don’t some people
use their technology
differently to others? What are we afraid of? This? This is technology.
It's made of plastic and wires. Who designed the technology?
Who funded the technology?
Who built the technology?
Who programmed the technology?
Who packaged the technology?
Who sold the technology? http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/newsandevents/podcasts/media/more/tedx?podcastItem=steve_fuller.mp4 It doesn't 'think'.
It obeys commands given to it in a language of
'1's and '0's. Why did he do that? $61 billion $9.4 billion http://sixtyminutes.ninemsn.com.au/stories/8491606/the-app-revolution So maybe technology itself
is not changing society but SOME humans are using technology to change society
because it benefits them. And, if it's possible to
use technology to change
society for personal benefit,
then isn't it also possible to use
technology for global benefit? http://web.archive.org/web/20130129191650/http://www.aber.ac.uk/media/Documents/tecdet/tdet02.html What is the aim of E-Learning? Are MOOC's an attempt to use technology
to create global change? https://www.coursera.org/ THE
