CEEN Workshop: Digital Diffractive Methodologies with Microsoft Sway

Event details

During this practical online workshop I will share my learning from a recent project in which I utilised a range of different digital tools to see how I could engage with data differently, and invite participants to explore their own digital diffractions using Microsoft Sway.

The research focussed on creative music making online with a group including young people with autism spectrum disorders, professional musicians and myself as a researcher. During the project I collected and generated different materials including text, photographs, drawn images, video and sound. All of these were mediated through digital channels, and so the digital became enmeshed in the materials as they emerged, hosting, facilitating and entangling itself into a series of diffractions of the data. Here is a report on the project, made for the participants.

The workshop will be part technical tutorial for using the software Sway, part digital play, and part theoretical reflection on what emerges. No previous experience needed!

The workshop is facilitated by Ursula Crickmay, PhD researcher at the University of Exeter, Graduate School of Education
