Speakers:

Vincent Hui and Graham McCarthy, Ryerson University. “There's an App for That: Ubiquitous Computing Thinking Outside the Classroom”.

Lee Knuttila,York University. “Home(re)work(ed): the Pedagogical Potential of Memes, Mash-ups, and Remixes”.

Dan McClure, Pacific Northwest College of Art. “Mimi and Homeroom: Homegrown Educational Software Solutions at PNCA”.

Technology and social practice have important implications for how we can extend learning beyond the physical boundaries of the classroom. This session will bring together three unique perspectives on the rapidly changing learning environment. First, we will hear how mobile computing can bring the classroom into the “real world” for architecture students. Second, we will explore how remixes, mash-ups, and memes can enhance traditional teaching methods while allowing for new forms of student participation. Finally, we will learn how even small institutions can create their own innovative, open-source tools to satisfy a variety of local needs.
