Infrastructure | Applications | Environment

November 27, 2007

I noticed this Technology Fundamentals Programme that the Otago Polytechnic Diploma in Interactive Multimedia Development (IMD) deliver to their first year students. Their are many crossovers to the Digital Literacy Programme we are thinking about in the School of Art, but interestingly their emphasis is on the computer components and software, before any ethical or contextual issues are addressed. We are looking at working these similar ideas in the opposite direction.

Also of note is their use of the words Infrastructure, Applications and Environment…do these relate to Access, Interpret, Create? I believe they do!

    Hi Rachel, yes, I guess they do..

    The opening sentence to the programme you point to says, “This paper provides a balance between development of technical skills and reflection on social implications of the rapid, recent development of information technology.” which says to me that there is meant to be some consideration of ethics etc…

    Do you know who runs this course? Has Dave McQuillan been in touch with you yet? Or Sam Mann? I’m hoping that both these people will be able to assist… what next? Anything more to add since we met last?
