Emerging Mondays Sounds of the Bazaar LIVE podcast : Edupunks

July 8th, 2008 by Dirk Stieglitz

This is the last LIVE edu-radio show before we take a summer break. The theme: Edupunks. And if you missed it here is your chance to download or listen online to the podcast version. If you heard the live version you can listen again!

First up in the show is Edupunk ‘poster boy’ Jim Groom – the man who first coined the name edupunk.

He is followed by Mike Caulfield from the University of Mary Washington. He talks about edupunks as a metaphor and about change cultures.

Helen Keegan explains how she developed a new ‘do it yourself’ course at the Univeristy of Salford. Helen explains the need for us to loosen up control.

Kathryn Greenhill from Australia explains that punklib is librarians doing it for themselves. She appeals for libraries to free up data.

Martin Weller, believes edupunk is a metaphor for the zeitgeist of our times. He talks about the tension between the culture of social networking and our instututional course provision.

Sounds of the Bazaar resident edu-granny, Leila Gray, reflects on the differences technology has made in her lifetime.

Margarita Perez Garcia wraps up the July edition of Emerging Mondays with three short experimental poems.

The music for this show is from the polish Rock-Punk-Alternative Band Adapters. We feature their album Adapters. You can find this album and a lot more music on the great Creative Commons music site Jamendo.com.

  1. Graham, thanks for giving me the opportunity to read some poetry. I enjoyed a lot seeking poetry for people who cannot understand Spanish: quite challenging! This time I was more relaxed than the first, when I read Julio Cortazar. I was dying from stress. But managed to say some words in English, fighting my own language ghosts. Also, I have never heard my voice in a recording. This was strange! I adore reading poetry, but I have never dared in public! So a new experience for me as well.

  2. Quite enjoyed listening to this show and the ideas presented around the theme of edupunk. I think the meme captures much of the ethos surrounding participatory media and the culture shifts we are beginning to observe. The new social tools presented to us allow us to be broadcasters–we, the people, can do it ourselves. And punk rock is a fine example of this. Perhaps more importantly, punk rockers are artists. Edupunk embodies this notion of educators as artists, those who intentionally trace and explore traditional boundaries and human expression. The edupunk meme signifies more than just a tart phrase pasted on the media landscape. To truly understand its meaning, you have to live it.

    Rock on!

    Chris
