I’m using the #ETMOOC experience as an excuse to push the boundaries of my thoughts surrounding online, participatory learning, technology, identity, community and a lot of psychological assumptions that may very well be culturally conditioned and perhaps without warrant. I want to explore the current conceptions (and misconceptions) of technology in education, digital networks, the constraints that we as a culture have applied to our own learning processes and how the possibility of being autonomous and anonymous while learning affects my own perception of self.
In other words, I consider myself schooled on most of the topics in #etmooc, but want to learn about the things that happen in the experience, outside of the topics. The things between the lines.
I also want to encourage and inspire others to BE THE GIRL.
