Exploring Uncanny Digital Literacies

Over on my other blog, The Popular Uncanny, I wrote this evening about a neat Prezi presentation on “Uncanny Digital Literacies” by Sian Bayne, from the ESRC seminar series on Literacies in the Digital University (University of Edinburgh, 16 Oct 2009). She mentions a book called A Will to Learn: Being a Student in an Age of Uncertainty by Ronald Barrett that I want to get my hands on.

For now, I’ll just embed Bayne’s presentation here — if you want to read some of my thoughts and light research on it, visit my blog entry entitled “Uncanny Digital Literacies: Defamiliarization in The Classroom” on The Popular Uncanny.
