Abstract:
In Sunrise at RMIT we are working on a process of disciplining personal experience with computers in order to develop a shared educational technology. Given that computers will be ubiquitous soon, how can sense be made of their presence? Our 'discipline to awaken awarenesses' is based on the Discipline of Noticing of Professor John Mason (Open University) and developed with his assistance. Our development of ways of articulating what is done with, by and in the presence of computers aims to support a discourse which will empower those involved to make informed and appropriate decisions and evaluations of their interactions with computers.
