Wayfinding in Digital Spaces

A session at BIT16 - BringIT,Together 2016

Thursday 10th November, 2016

11:00am to 11:50am (EST)

Are you an intrepid traveller in digital spaces (aka a hitchhiker in the digital galaxy)?
Are you a rooted resident in digital neighbourhoods?
How do you find your way in digital spaces - is there a map for that?
Who and what guides and supports your digital adventures?

During this interactive session you will create your own map of digital spaces using the Visitors & Residents framework by David White . You will wander through the ever changing digital landscapes as interactively mapped on All Aboard [http://allaboardhe.org/digital-s...] and Mozilla Web Literacy [https://learning.mozilla.org/en-...]. You will be guided by the map of Ontario's 21st Century competencies. Through exploration you will develop a personal wayfinding strategy - no GPS needed).

The process of wayfinding builds a framework for your individual, professional journey with technology. Together, we’ll examine current digital landscapes, discover roadblocks, and plan possible routes. You will venture into new or familiar digital spaces where you can wander, become a visitor or take up residence.
