The Digital Culture project addresses the use of digital technologies to support learning. Approaches in this area are very varied, but a simple split can be made between:

Programmes for students, where learners use technology in problem solving or more open-ended learning, and Technology for teachers such as interactive whiteboards or learning platforms.

The Next Digital Culture event take place: 2pm-4pm Wednesday 15th March 2017  

This months event is a workshop on paper prototyping which will be delivered by Joel Gethin Lewis

Gethin Lewis has been a Visiting Practitioner at in GCD at CSM teaching on BA and MA and more importantly has developed an amazing long term practice and portfolio of projects in computation, art, and design.

Joel’s workshop focuses on the us of  paper and pens to quickly physically prototype ideas. The idea is to find out the challenges and opportunities around an idea before spending money on building it – the technique works for anything from products to websites to workshops.

Digital Is Not The Future

It’s already here!

Digital Culture – What is it? How did it Start? Why did it Start? Where is it Going?

The Digital Culture pilot took place Wednesday 29th June 2016. X number of staff from Central Saint Martins attended a half day workshop that discussed digital practices for staff and students and how this relates to ongoing digital literacy as part of Central Saint Martins’ developmental strategy. Staff were able to contribute their ideas about current digital practices and the varying skill sets within the nine programmes.

Contributors took part in discussions around the following topics:

  • Anxiety and Security in the Curriculum
  • Identity and Privacy in Online Educational Spaces
  • Digital Presence and Professionalization
  • Digital Wellbeing and Responsibility 

Our initial; approach was to explore these areas whilst simultaneosuly utilising digital tools and platforms in a hands on workshop setting, however, the topics led the contributors to discuss and agree on ways forward for Digital Culture at Central Saint Martins.

The session allowed staff to discuss their use of tools and platforms (from Moodle via workflow, and InDesign, to coding and web design) in a hands-on workshop setting. Staff discussed and agreed collectively on a way forward for utilising Digital Culture at Central Saint Martins.

The workshop underscored the following questions

How do you consider digital Identity and well being in your curricula?

  1. Utilise online portfolios as part of students reflective practice
  2. Students need to understand how to manage their digital identity – safely and professionally
  3. How do you deal with Social Media?…theres no opt out if you are a student. How do you deal with this in terms of showcasing your work?

Staff highlighted the importance of students and staff being being able to learn in an unthreatening environment

How do we address ongoing digital literacy (a) For staff and (b) for students?
