The Digital DIY Social/Cultural Phenomenon:
How & Why The DiDIY Project Intends To Study It?
(time: 31:55 mn)

Marco Fioretti

Freelance writer, popularizer, activist and teacher img-flecheHaut


Digital Do-It-Yourself practices amplify the creativity and skills of individuals. More than a merely technical phenomenon, though, they are a **social** one, with far-ranging ethical, social and economical consequences. This talk outlines some of these important consequences, how the H2020 DiDIY research project intends to study them, and what its expected outcomes will be. img-flecheHaut

At 29:25 mn, Ryan Merkley answers to questions of the audience


The talk will focus on the current status of Open Educational Resources (OER) which can be described by “the critical mass of content is missing the critical mass of users”. I will argue that the advanced technologies are not being explored in a full extend to foster the wide adoption of OER. img-flecheHaut
