Through the last couple of days Amy Burvall’s blog post about “why we need digital vikings” has been keep popping up in my twitter stream on the #edcmooc course.
Then i first read it i was surprised about the usage of vikings, but at the same time i was intrigued on how to use it and get it further. So i started using the #digitalvikings hashtag in my twitterstream, think many saw it as a kind of joke, but i can see the potential in this.
All the talking about the difference between digital natives and immigrants goes around like a circle, are we one thing or another and how to communicate with the other part. but what about the people in both camp who search in further out? there are boundaries but no one are looking at them atm, they look at how to navigate through this new world.
I’m a kind of person who like to jump right out in the middle of something, not knowing what to except or what to do or where i gonna end up for that part. So i think its time to throw the map and compass away and set sail out on a new experience on how we use web 2.0 and maybe even more important how do we make it work with outdoor education. With all the dystopian view of the future about machines taking over, i try to look into how to combine outdoor and ict with each other, making a weird and inspiring experience.
I want to go where the magic happens and by doing that i need to search for the boundaries and the unexplored. So the question that pops up in my mind:
Are we standing on the step of a new digital age – the age of the digital vikings?
I think we are and i wanna go find that magic place
