Abstract

Player pianos, radio-electric circuits, gramophone records, and optical sound film—these were the cutting-edge acoustic technologies of the early twentieth century, and for many musicians and artists of the time, these devices were also the implements of a musical revolution. Instruments for New Music traces a diffuse network of cultural agents who shared the belief that a truly modern music could be attained only through a radical challenge to the technological foundations of the art. Centered in Germany during the 1920s and 1930s, the movement to create new instruments encompassed a broad spectrum of experiments, from the exploration of microtonal tunings and exotic tone colors to the ability to compose directly for automatic musical machines. This movement comprised composers, inventors, and visual artists, including Paul Hindemith, Ernst Toch, Jörg Mager, Friedrich Trautwein, László Moholy-Nagy, Walter Ruttmann, and Oskar Fischinger. Patteson’s fascinating study combines an artifact-oriented history of new music in the early twentieth century with an astute revisiting of still-relevant debates about the relationship between technology and the arts.

Abstract

This book offers a critical introduction to the core technologies underlying the Internet from a humanistic perspective. It provides a cultural critique of computing technologies, by exploring the history of computing and examining issues related to writing, representing, archiving and searching. The book raises awareness of, and calls for, the digital humanities to address the challenges posed by the linguistic and cultural divides in computing, the clash between communication and control, and the biases inherent in networked technologies. A common problem with publications in the Digital Humanities is the dominance of the Anglo-American perspective. While seeking to take a broader view, the book attempts to show how cultural bias can become an obstacle to innovation both in the methodology and practice of the Digital Humanities. Its central point is that no technological instrument is culturally unbiased, and that all too often the geography that underlies technology coincides with the social and economic interests of its producers. The alternative proposed in the book is one of a world in which variation, contamination and decentralization are essential instruments for the production and transmission of digital knowledge. It is thus necessary not only to have spaces where DH scholars can interact (such as international conferences, THATCamps, forums and mailing lists), but also a genuine sharing of technological know-how and experience.

Abstract

The study presents a framework of responsible and responsive technology enhanced learning integration into organizations. Applying the theories of integration of innovation in an organization, technology enhanced learning integration criteria groups have been identified and validated in this study in the following sequence: 1) Strategy and management, 2) Information communication technologies and infrastructure, 3) Continuous professional staff development, 4) Technology enhanced learning curriculum, 5) Support systems, 6) Quality assurance, and 7) Marketing and business development. The implementation of framework of technology enhanced learning integration into three types of organizations - vocational education and training, business and community organizations- have been researched and results presented. The study aimed at presenting the complexity of TEL implementation in various organisations, searching for commonalities and researching separate organisational cases.

Abstract

Technology enhanced learning concept, curriculum characteristics and processes are revealed and described in the monograph from philosophical, methodological, and empirical point of view and in the context of international experience.Integration of technology enhanced learning in an organization is based on the conception that information communication technologies should be in harmony with learning and teaching process to enhance these processes. Research implemented in three types of organizations – education, business and community – is presented in the book. Research results are focused on the strengths, limitations, learning and teaching needs in organizations, as well as input of staff of these organizations towards successful integration of technology enhanced learning. Virtual learning environment preferences, the need for technology enhanced learning perceived by the staff and the use and benefit of integration process for individuals and for the organization are discussed.

Abstract

eGirls, eCitizens is a landmark work that explores the many forces that shape girls’ and young women’s experiences of privacy, identity, and equality in our digitally networked society. Drawing on the multi-disciplinary expertise of a remarkable team of leading Canadian and international scholars, as well as Canada’s foremost digital literacy organization, MediaSmarts, this collection presents the complex realities of digitized communications for girls and young women as revealed through the findings of The eGirls Project (www.egirlsproject.ca) and other important research initiatives. Aimed at moving dialogues on scholarship and policy around girls and technology away from established binaries of good vs bad, or risk vs opportunity, these seminal contributions explore the interplay of factors that shape online environments characterized by a gendered gaze and too often punctuated by sexualized violence.

Perhaps most importantly, this collection offers first-hand perspectives collected from girls and young women themselves, providing a unique window on what it is to be a girl in today’s digitized society.
