Blog Entry The Digital Classroom: Social Justice and Pedagogy
by Nishant Shah published Dec 23, 2011 last modified May 08, 2015 12:36 PM — filed under: , , , , , ,
What happens when we look at the classroom as a space of social justice? What are the ways in which students can be engaged in learning beyond rote memorisation? What innovative methods can be evolved to make students stakeholders in their learning process? These were some of the questions that were thrown up and discussed at the 2 day Faculty Training workshop for participant from colleges included in the Pathways to Higher Education programme, supported by Ford Foundation and collaboratively executed by the Higher Education Innovation and Research Application and the Centre for Internet and Society, Bangalore.

We are at the mercy of trigger-happy governments and profit-hungry corporations that hold our digital lives ransom. They have the capacity to censor, contain, control and eradicate all our digital data without our consent and without repercussions.

Blog Entry In Search of the Other: Decoding Digital Natives
by Nishant Shah published Dec 01, 2011 last modified May 14, 2015 12:12 PM — filed under: , ,
This is the first post of a research inquiry that questions the ways in which we have understood the Youth-Technology-Change relationship in the contemporary digital world, especially through the identity of ‘Digital Native’. Drawing from three years of research and current engagements in the field, the post begins a critique of how we need to look at the outliers, the people on the fringes in order to unravel the otherwise celebratory nature of discourse about how the digital is changing the world.

To Act or to Watch
by Lyuba Guerassimova published Feb 10, 2012 last modified Feb 17, 2012 05:18 AM — filed under:
I want to explore the border between the urge to act and the collective irresponsibility created by online media. In initial stages of the spread of digital communication methods, they can empower, and if used smartly, they can create changes even in the more digitalized communities/countries. However, there is a big 'but': collective irresponsibility - the potential for change has in many societies become diffused into pointless social networking, which creates only passive supporters for a cause but does not lead to any positive action. I want to look at the choices we have to make and how we can learn from communities that are not so digitized in order to 'remember' where our power for change lies.

by Sandeep Kr. Singh & Aakriti Kohli published Feb 13, 2012 last modified Feb 18, 2012 03:12 PM — filed under:
Through this video we want to explore how Internet, broadly, can be used to circumvent offline censorship. The idea is to explore how social networking sites could be sites of ‘agency’ for digital natives.
