«Augmented map of digital literacy as a conversational tool»
Implementation of new educational policies need the help of teachers as the change agents. Agency, locus-of-control or a “can-do” mindset is developed through the practice of making and modifying objects. Modern learning environments are putting hardware and software in the hands of children to conduct scientific explorations, create sophisticated worlds and games, participate in different types of digital collaborative fabrication and remixing. However, the experience of teachers in participating in collaborative making is extremely limited. This study investigated remixing of educational practices and ontologies in the formation of teacher’s agency.
