    1. To be clear on this point, the term technology refers toeverykind of artifactwe use, as well as to the embodiedroutinesrelated to them.

      This is important to consider. The embodied routines related to any technology are something that shape how we do things and in the long term, who we are

    2. see literacy as a complex phenomenon that is itself part ofsocial practices, and to appreciate that there are many literacies next to the mere technicalability to read and write.

      how would you define the skills and knowledge you need to learn to use Twine?

    3. passionate affinity spaces

      This is lovely metaphor: affinity spaces! Those are needed to learn new practices thus literacies. I see Twine as such an affiniti space

    4. Literacy, according tothis school of thought, is part of ‘a social and cultural practice in the lived lives of people’

      This is important and it is related with the idea of digital technologies being everywhere. They mediate the majority of our social and cultural practices.

    5. being literate is the result of having become familiar with particular socialpractices, which renders themerely technicalactivity of reading and writing intosomething meaningful

      This is the idea to work with Twine, it is a tool that allows to tell stories (cultural practices) in different ways, mediated not only by your voice or the words but also the web. It then allows to tell stories in different ways

    6. Guidelines for this reading:

      The idea with this paper is to understand digital literacy using knowledge we already have experienced, namely traditional literacy. Vliegue takes us from there to what he considers is needed to become digitally literate to be able to understand and interact with a digitally mediated world. Think about these questions while you read:

      1. What is the role of the 'grammatised body' presented in the paper and digital literacies?
      2. Do you remember that painful process of learning how to read and write? The one that Gee is refering to in the paper? Reflect on your answer as to the why aspect of it.
      3. How does that process can be analogous to digital literacy? Do you see that any of the activities we will be doing in the next weeks are related to improve your digital literacies?
      • Aim of the chapter: How COPI relates to children and their empowerment within society
      • Claim: children have been given a voice in a tokenisitc sense and that their voice is limited and controlled by adults withn society.
      • The idea of child as citizen is explored and is considered in terms of right and responsibiities
      • The role of the child will be reviewed. It is suggested that the child has been excluded of the space of moral issues and the political world
      • Proposed solution: COPI to be active participants including the political dimension
    1. Highlight the passages you don't understand so we can clarify those grey spots using this tools but also use our seminar to discuss them :-)

    2. These are the questions to think about:

      1. How do your views of what children are (like) fit into the conceptual framework outlined in the lecture and in the reading?
      2. Have your ideas changed as a result of the reading and lecture? Why not?
      3. What further puzzles or questions do you have about what children are (like)?
      4. What will you read next?

    1. E data infrastructures need to be seen not just as technical programs but as practical relays of political objectives to reform the sector

      I am not entirely clear what this sentence really means?

    1. I think that the element of INCLUSION is really important. For me the adjective of 'open' has implications that cannot be forgotten or ignored. The part of this idea that I like the most is the importance of establishing digital inclusion transcending utilitarian limits. My view is that students are sometimes used for a political agenda and they are not given the guidance, time and scaffold they need to be digitally included. Nowadays inclusion is not so much about having or not having access to the internet but about what people do when they are connected. DIgital inequality is bigger than we think. It is complex and nuanced, all but not straitforward. It deserves a critical pedagogy so that at the end of the work every one is able to enter to that learnign space called open.

    1. It seems from what you are saying that support is key for digital literacies to improve. My research shows similar ideas. Thank for sharing your ideas and the know-how you have.
