Produsing Olympic Images

The Sochi Opening Ceremony has prompted some interesting produsage of images. This T-shirt appeared for sale on 10 February.   The Olympic Charter (7.4) states: The Olympic symbol, flag, motto, anthem, identifications (including but not limited to “Olympic Games” and “Games of the Olympiad”), designations, emblems, flame and torches, as defined in Rules 8-14 below, may, for convenience, be collectively or individually referred to as “Olympic properties”. All rights to any and all Olympic properties, as well as all rights to the use thereof, belong exclusively to the IOC, including but not limited to the use for any profit-making, commercial or advertising purposes....

Students as Produsers

I have an opportunity to present at this year's ePortfolio Forum. I have uploaded my SlideCast. I am sharing a PDF copy here for reference. Students as Produsers One of the quotes I use in the presentation is from Susan Bloom If our ultimate goal is to educate human beings, then we must focus not only on knowledge and information, discipline and surveillance as measured by tests, but also on non-academic pleasures, motivations, skills, and the full array of human engagement that sustains attention and meaning. I like the idea of "the full array of human engagement" and see produsing as an opportunity for this...

Another View

Introduction I am presenting a paper at this year's Sporting Traditions XIX Conference in Canberra. It is titled Produsing Historical Narratives. I aim to explore some of the opportunities available in using digital media to produse historical narratives.  Like Bruns (2008), I believe that we have “a new process for the continuous creation and extension of knowledge and art by collaborative communities: produsage”. I propose to explore the issues around produsage and the possibilities for constructing and sharing narratives. I intend to conclude the paper by considering how the sports history community can develop its use of knowledge capital by engaging...

#SCP12: Oracy and Creativity

I look forward to Fridays. it is the day I meet students in the Sport Coaching Pedagogy unit at the University of Canberra. This week our tutorials explored ideas linked to oracy and creativity. My presentation in the lecture was on Produsing Resources. The day coincided with the submission of online presentations as part of the unit's assessment. I think we had lots to talk about and the Slideshow gives a feel for some of the tutorial activities in the beautiful InSPIRE Building 25 on the University of Canberra campus. As we were working through some ideas, far away (but conversely very near) Stephen...

#SCP12 Produsing Resources for Teaching and Coaching

This is week 10 of the Sport Coaching Pedagogy unit at the University of Canberra. This week's theme is Produsing resources. Although my spellchecker and search engines want me to write Producing, it is Produsing. I am grateful to Axel Bruns for providing a great deal of information about Produsing. He points out: In the online, networked, information economy, participants are not simply passive consumers, but active users, with some of them participating more strongly with a focus only on their own personal use, some of them participating more strongly in ways which are inherently constructive and productive of social networks and communal content....

Open Language

UCNISS submitted an open tender to the Australian Paralympic Committee this week. We submitted a proposal to produce A History of the Paralympic Movement in Australia, and to establish a repository of media and digitised primary resources to compliment the text. The tender was written as a Wikiversity page. The process of becoming open has been a great personal learning experience. I am fortunate to have had Leigh Blackall and James Neill as my guides and to access Stephen Downes' OLDaily to extend my horizons. Stephen has presented his ideas on The Role of Open Educational Resources in Personal Learning this...
