Sample text

We play against the world – and with it. Thus, our learning place is both, fake and real, ordinary and artificial, fun and serious (Consalvo 2003). Again, like art, play is a process which exists only as experience. Both activities refer to and distance themselves from the world at the same time. Art is playing against, and with, the world, using material, objects and relations of the world but aiming at a quality beyond it. From this point of view, there must be a distance between learners and the real world, even as they work on realworld problems to bring works into existence, beyond the studio, and into everyday life.

Comparing the online presence of established media brands, such as CNN and the BBC, with home-made sites made by amateur enthusiasts in their spare time, Fenton unsurprisingly finds that the former have much bigger audiences (pp. 134–5). Rather more surprisingly, she concludes from this that self-made media is a waste of time, made by deluded narcissists (I paraphrase, but that is what she says – see Fenton 2012: 135). Even if we ignore that extreme misanthropic view, the old-media lens nevertheless tells us that a typical article on the BBC website, read by a million people, is important, whereas a number of blogs that are only read by 500 people each are basically irrelevant.

We emphasise interactive, project-oriented learning in which students are engaged and active participants. As a result, their learning experience is one of personal transformation that has the potential to produce graduates that function at the postpersonal and transpersonal levels. Team-based project work also enhances opportunities for peer review and co-creation. At another level, it is the hybrid nature of the learning space in which the BCT is ‘played out’ that is key to how students engage with the transdisciplinary nature of the emerging Creative Technologies domain.
