So one of my colleagues at the U of M suggested that I focus my feminist pedagogies class this fall on technology. I love this idea–even though it requires a lot of work as I think through what technologies to focus on, etc. Not sure if I even like the term technologies here. Maybe new social media or digital media? Anyway, I want to begin putting together a list of possible resources for the class. Here’s what I’ve already found (most of this comes via my twitter feed). Since I trying to learn a lot more about twitter (I don’t know much, but want to use it in my classes this year), this list is pretty twitter-heavy at this point.
GENERAL TECHNOLOGY SOURCES:
- Reflections on a technology-driven syllabus
- On ethics and responsible writing practices online
- How Racist Language Shapes New Social Media and why you should care
- Young Feminists are Online
- Twitter is a snark valve
- Twitter for academia
- The Art of the Tweet
- 7 tools to make better use of twitter
- Including Twitter profile on movable type (UThink)
I’m still trying to decide how much emphasis I want to put on technology and how many different technologies that I want to focus on. I definitely want to talk about blogging and twitter. I’m also thinking about podcasts/v-logs, google maps/google Earth and digital storytelling. Any thoughts?
