David White, LILAC 2018, Liverpool: Posthuman literacies: reframing relationships between information, technology and identity

About this video

David White, Head of Digital Learning at the University of the Arts London.

Keynote at the Librarians' Information Literacy Annual Conference, Liverpool 6th April 2018.

My phone is not a tool I use, it’s a facet of my ‘self’. It is part of who I am - part of what makes me human. By extension, the knowledge and expertise in my network is also interwoven into my sense of self, it’s an element of my identity. In this talk I will explore notions of the technoself and how we can respond to students and staff who embody, rather then simply use, technology. I will highlight what this means for critical pedagogy and the crucial role libraries play in fostering a culture of criticality within which students can extend, not defend, their identities.
