Open Education and Digital Identities

This presentation, done by Catherine Cronin, explains the fundamentals of networked learning and the ecosystem that exists, “I don’t think education is about centralized instruction anymore; rather, it is the process [of] establishing oneself as a node in a broad network of distributed creativity.”  It expands on these concepts to share what the truly networked teacher or learner looks like.  Most interestingly, it describes the different aspects of ourselves that manifest themselves in different contexts.  Performative self, quantified self, participatory self, asynchronous self, augmented self, surveiled self, branded self.  Networked really is, as Lee Rainie (Pew) tells us, the new operating system.
