Followed a link from a note on Facebook which lead to some excellent materials by Michele Knobel and her colleagues. The papers that they wrote all addressed some aspect of the theme: Literacy, Identity, Place.
Our school this year has run an AOS on “Identity”, in preparation for the concepts dealt with in next years AOS: “Belonging”. I’ve tried to push the idea of studying online identity, but I’m not teaching the course so can’t get involved really with how it is conceptualised. But I think these papers, although they aren’t relevant at all points, would provide a good entry for interested teachers into thinking about online identity.
