10 Mindful Activities & 7 Design In-Sites for Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning:The Points of Viewing Theory and a Tool called Orion-beta(tm)Dr. Ricki GoldmanAssociate Professor of Educational Communication and TechnologyCo-Director, CREATE LabNew York Universityhttp://steinhardt.nyu.edu/profiles/faculty/ricki_goldmanhttp://steinhardt.nyu.edu/faculty_bios/view/Ricki_GoldmanThursday, January 15, 4:30-5:30, POST 127The points of viewing theory (POVT) of learning is a theory about how the interpretive actions of participants overlap and intersect. To embrace how these points of viewing converge (and diverge) leads to a deeper understanding of not only the event and a video event, but also the actual physical and the recorded context of the topic under investigation. POVT has at its heart the intersecting perspectives of all participants with a stake in the community.POVT also overcomes the static, isolating, individualized approach to point of view, in favor of the dynamic tension that operates among points of viewing–points that generate intersecting sight-lines, enabling people to catch sight of each other, as interpreters, even as they project their own point of view.The perspectivity methodological framework (Goldman and Maxwell, 2002) for research in CSCL maintains that advanced video technologies offer a larger range of possible interpretations on what occurred in a given setting, knowing that every stakeholder has a different viewing of the event–a viewing that affects changes in perception as the video is shared, annotated, and put into new configurations within social networks.The question is this: How can the POV-ing theory be used as a framework for designing learning tools and methods to address the crisis facing education in the 21st Century? How can it merge individual learning within communities of practice?In this talk, Dr. Ricki Goldman will propose 10 mindful learning activities and seven design in-sites learned from her twenty years designing video research technologies for computer-supported collaborative research.——Dr. Ricki Goldman — media and learning theorist, digital video ethnographer, and software inventor — is Associate Professor and Co-Director of the CREATE Lab at NYU. Her research interests focus on student learning in technology-rich learning environments, ”quisitive” research methods, and the design of an online tool for video data analysis. Recently Goldman is exploring how video technologies lie at the interstices of social networking and social justice issues.
