Keynote presentation at the 4th annual meeting of the LINKS Center:
Emerging trajectories in learning in a networked society

Prof. Chris Hoadley - New York University

05.09.16 Monday


(The Faculty of Education in Science and Technology, room 107, Technion)


The profound changes in how technology permits people and information to be networked have led to equally profound changes in how we learn and know in a networked society. In this talk, I discuss some of the major trends in how advances in technology are leading to qualitative shifts in learning, and some of the possible perspectives--explanatory and design-minded--that can help us understand what it means to learn or support learning, and how our ideas about knowing need to shift from an individualistic to a contextualized, socially distributed model to support collective intelligence. I propose five waves of technology-mediated learning, and argue that our design goals need to shift towards a relational model of knowledge as a form of culturally embedded empowerment.


Chris Hoadley is an associate professor in the Educational Communication and Technology Program, the Program in Digital Media Design for Learning, and the Program on Games for Learning. He has 40 years' experience designing and building educational technology, and has researched connections between technology, learning, and collaboration for 25 years. His research focuses on collaborative technologies, computer support for cooperative learning (CSCL), and design-based research methods, a term he coined in the late 1990s. He has recently completed a 3 years "on loan" position in the National Science Foundation (NSF) as a program officer in the Directorate for Education and Human Resources, Division of Research on Learning in Formal and Informal Settings, and in the Directorate for Computer and Information Sciences and Engineering, Division of Information and Intelligent Systems.

Virality & Politics of Information Propagation
פרופ' קרין נהון - אוניברסיטת וושינגטון

We live in a world where a tweet can be instantly retweeted and read by millions around the world in minutes, where a video forwarded to friends can destroy a political career in hours or a cause for a public debate, and where an unknown man or woman can become an international celebrity overnight. Virality, a mechanism that reproduces social norms, and at the same time a mechanism that challenges institutions and their structure. What is it and how does it work? Why does one particular video get millions of views while hundreds of thousands of others get only a handful? What impact does it have on us? And what is left, after a viral event decays? In this lecture I will discuss the complex facets of virality as a process and its impact on individuals, groups and societies.  This lecture is based on the book ‘Going Viral’ and on recent work about politics of social media.
