Mixed Media

7 Sep

Another inspirational AudioBoo from Christian Payne, aka @Documentally

Much of what I was trying to achieve through my QR hunts was to demonstrate what a number of people are already doing…

In our analogue world we share common behaviours:
we: • experience • explore • interact,
with:  •people • objects • environments…
we: • document • archive • share…

I have been constructing spaces in the real-world where real journeys take place. Navigation however is achieved by means of technology (Mobile devices, Google Maps, QR Codes); capturing, documenting and sharing as we go (Twitter, Instagram, AudioBoo, FaceBook, Flickr, YouTube, Vimeo), with the Dungeon Master curating this content for online audiences across the World (WordPress, Storify).

My games (the image above is from my St Andrews PHD Summer School game) reflect the digital equivalent of those common analogue behaviours which will become even more prevalent in the future. Some are already doing it – see Documentally amongst others. However, I believe my games can help us understand what we want from these tools, what uses we can find for them and what forms they should take in the future.

Documentally’s Boo is specifically about the various ways in which we ‘consume’ media. He observed within a few, cramped, square feet multiple methods of creating and consuming media, each of them a succession in terms of technology but each equally valid and acceptable in itself.

There may be value in artificially constructing such a scene – however contrived it may seem – as an illustration of where we stand with regards to media in 2011. But to have witnessed it in the wild..!? There are definitely overtones of a frustrated Attenborough as Documentally, our guide in the urban jungle, laments missing the money-shot!

So have a listen to Documentally’s AudioBoo, but before you do please sign up on the right for updates – In the coming weeks I plan to deliver complete outlines and outcomes from the three real-world games plus the smaller prototype games, projects and methods in development as a result of my Masters project.

I passed BTW 🙂

Beginning/Middle/End – A story project via Instagram

12 Aug

The challenge is to document your day in three images using the iPhone app ‘Instagram’. When you publish your image please label it accordingly with ‘beginning’, ‘middle’ or ‘end’. Also, really important (so that I can find them all), hashtag your images with #BMEday. Watch the story unfold on Instagram, Twitter or here on Storify.

The game is on… the #instagram based project, Beginning/Middle/End takes place this Saturday #BMEday – http://j.mp/pZVRzx plz RT

Cool Learnings: 2 | Spaces for Innovation

Sometimes things that unexpectedly come our way have the greatest potential to inspire new, exciting learning opportunities for our students. #BMEday (Beginning/Middle/End) is of those things. I invite you to read this blog post to find out how, within this simple story telling strategy, one might find hidden layers for much more complex, deeper, thought invoked learning.

use the #bmeday to find all Beginning/Middle/End pictures from last weekend... More will follow on this project soon...
