Connected Pedogoy Assignment: The Reverse Peephole
I made several annotations on the reading, as listed below. However, I would like to focus on three quotes. For each quote, I have provided a reason for annotation this quote. I aim to help students relate concepts or themes to their lives. Generally, when students relate the content to their experiences, I think they can better grasp and understand the concept.
Quote: ” Queen Victoria transformed into King Edward, ‘the fourth dimension’ became an everyday concept.”
Annotation: I am not familiar with this concept of ‘the fourth dimension that occurred a century ago. I need to research since I don’t know what transformation happened during this time.
Quote: “The modem’s faithful churn made it seem as if it were tunneling through to somewhere else, opening up a space for us to inhabit.”
Annotation: What does “tunneling through to somewhere else” look like in the digital world? Does that tunnel still exist?
Quote: “With the prospect of this fourth digital dimension, a moment can feel strangely flat if it exists solely in itself.”
Annotation: If you post an accomplishment on social media, does it feel “more real” than if you didn’t post it? Why?
