In this post, I give an example of how our project WordSeer, a text analysis environment for humanities scholars, can be used to overcome [vocab searches in text collections].
See esp. article by Lev Manovich on Photoshop.
Teaching Naked = teaching w/o tech in the classroom. But Fyfe is arguing for something more subtle:
Can we imagine "teaching naked" as more than merely doing without, but as something already integrated to the circuit of its electronic counterpart? What if instead we kept the "digital" in the non-electronic senses of that word: something to get your hands on, to deal with in dynamic units, to manipulate creatively?
But I’ll even make the stronger claim here: Eliminating technology produces not the affect of a more engaged literate student populous, rather it produces the reverse, an ill informed, uncritical, unengaged student populous who will become at the very best passive consumers of the technology being resisted, and at the worst its willing victims.
The Productive Unease ....
Such a great piece. See the part abt teaching naked; refs Stephen Ramsay and David Parry.
