Debate No. 2 : Do technologies proliferate non-knowledge?


Thanks to all the speakers who contributed to the debate on 28 January 2008:

Michael Young, Katerina Avramides, Wilma Clark, Eileen Scanlon and Richard Noss

An excellent series of presentations looked at whether:


  1. user-generated content offers "a pedagogic challenge that generates new knowledge and provokes debate",
  2. we can "scaffold the learning process with tools so that learners understand what knowledge construction is",
  3. if "obuchenie implies that the teacher is always a learner too, opening up learning to broader interpretations; do we need "messy success"?
  4. in science "boundaries of expertise are being tested in a more open review process"
  5. "access to mechanism is the key not the agglomeration of technology"



The debate centred on the following questions:


1. Do technologies proliferate non-knowledge?

2. How do we validate knowledge? Who validates it?

3. How do we meet the challenge posed by the notion that 'I can create my own knowledge?'

This wiki was originally developed to support a presentation at CAL 07 on Learner Generated Contexts (LGC). It was then used to support the LGC workshop entitled "Is User Generated Content more than YouTube or MySpace"** held at the London Knowledge Lab on 12th September 2007. The wiki is now being used as a general launchpad for the development of a research agenda for Learner Generated Contexts...
