Abstract [en]

The purpose of this article is to outline crowdsourcing identities as one way to think about humans’ making of identity when practiced in conditions mediated by contemporary digital technologies. It brings together human practices, theory and technology and draws on perspectives of existentialism, social constructivism, technology and ideas about crowdsourcing. Humans’ making of identity is considered a practice that concerns continuous requests and answers about existential matters of being, becoming and belonging: Who am I? How do I appear to others? Who can I be and become? Where do I belong? In that sense, it is a relational and social practice that is essential to exist as someone — rather than as no one. However, contemporary digital technologies such as social media are not considered essential to this practice. Technologies are thought of as mediating conditions where, for instance, social interactions about existential matters, such as the making of identity, can be practiced in ways that extend on what were possible in predigital times. In multimodal, multidirectional, collaborative and networked ways humans can represent, communicate, gather information and also engage online crowds of others in continuous requests and answers about being, becoming and belonging; Who am I? How do I appear to others? Who can I be and become? And, where do I belong? To illustrate this, two brief narratives of Mary and Steve introduce the article. The making of identity, the duality of Self and Other, the gaze as a panopticon of others, identity and technology and ideas about crowdsourcing are presented and outlined, converging into the interpretive lens of crowdsourcing identities — one way to think about the making of identity when practiced in conditions mediated by contemporary digital technology.

Abstract [en]

Digital Competence at the intersection of social values and identity: In policy, practice and theory?

 

Authors: Camilla Hällgren, Carina Granberg, Anna Rantala, Åsa Björk och Siv Johansson 

In Swedish and European policies, education is identified as one key agent for advancing opportunities of digitalization and delivering digital transformations. In Sweden the National Digitalization Strategy for the School System was presented 2017. Later, the Swedish national curricula were revised with stronger writings about digital competence and put into effect on the 1st of July 2018. Digital competence is said to apply to all students and staff members from preschool to adult education. In short, these revisions propose, abilities to programming as central, but also abilities to solve problems, to use of digital technology creatively while turning ideas into action, work with digital texts, media and tools, understand and use digital systems and services, to critically approach media and information as well as understand the impact of digitalization on society and individuals. Digitalization policies are indeed comprehensive, yet, we argue there are still important matters calling for attention. For instance, what does competence mean in relation to digitalization? What does digital competence mean in relation to social values in the curricula? And, what does adequate digital competence mean in relation to actual, everyday practices in schools and more widely? This presentation reports early results of an ongoing critical discourse analysis of the intersection of digital competence and social values, in policy and practice. It is argued that there is a discursive gap that needs to be bridged by ethical considerations. It is suggested that if the government’s digital agenda is to be truly in human service, bring about a bright future and a sustainable digital transformation of Sweden, components of social values, what it is to exist as a human; that is what technology does to the human condition, need to be included and equally relevant to other components of digital competences.

Abstract [en]

This presentation reports on an ongoing Swedish research project called Crowdsourcing Identities which concerns youth, identity and social media. The making of identity has been endorsed as one important condition for learning for a long time, in both research and educational policy context. It is argued that developing a confident, individual identity, and reflecting upon the identity of others, is fundamental in any educational practice. Moreover, matters of identity intersect with the ongoing digitalization of society in general and education in particular and digital technology proposes conditions for social interaction that differ from those available in pre-digital times. So, these new conditions enable young people not only to represent identity in other ways but also to make and learn about identities in digitally mediated ways - within as well as outside of educational contexts. The overall aim in the project is to conceptually and empirically deepen the knowledge about young people’s making of identity, digital technology and learning, as they combine. In focus is also how they may, to various extents in different intersections, influence conditions for teaching and learning. This presentation reports on the conceptual side of the research. It is suggested that one way to think about young people’s identity making, when practiced in conditions proposed by contemporary digital technologies, is through the interpretive lens of Crowdsourcing Identities. It draws on existentialism and social constructivism and converge theories about identity, technology and crowdsourcing. By so, it offers one way for thinking about digital technology, such as social media, as spaces not only for representing and expressing identities, but also as mediating conditions for identity making – a practice about existence and not just superficial expressions of vanity.

Abstract [en]

The intention with this article is to explore how visuals and written text may combine to further understandings about complex matters such as gendered aspects of the human condition. To do so, I bring together my professional practices as researcher and artist by theorizing, conceptualizing and visualizing aspects of children’s gender identity making. As such, this article is conceptual rather than empirical and covers issues about learning, existentialism, social constructivism, children, identity, and gender. It also exemplifies what I call Art Blended Research, an approach that draws on the insight of that there is more to see than meets the eye. In conclusion, the strength of this approach does not lie in the ability to explain what is. Instead, the strength of Art Blended Research is found in possible explorations and inspirations of what might be.

Abstract [en]

What does it mean to become a boy today? How does boyhood manifest itself in different contexts? How can we describe fathers and sons in contemporary society? And can we make the invisible boy visible in ways alternative to those of media?

This publication is the outcome of an international, multidisciplinary exploration of how boys become boys and how boys form identities today. The project was global in its scope and included 24 artists and academics from Sweden, USA, Turkey, UK, Finland, New Zealand, Croatia, Nigeria, Switzerland, India, Canada and Italy have contributed to the Invisible Boy. The publication with its 20 chapters includes academic papers, video, drawings, digital images, photography and music. Combining a variety of intellectual expressions the chapters forms a joint example of multimodal explorations to further understandings of complex matters such as gendered identity making.

The contributions are organised in four themes: Negotiating Identity, Bodily Existence, Boyhood Interrupted, and Gender and Contemporary Media.
