Examining hybrid digital/material resources in networked learning: a critical realist approach

The abstract of the paper that Sarah Davies and I will be presenting next month at Networked Learning 2014 in Edinburgh has been published on the conference web site (the full paper is available from the  OU’s ORO repository). It has ever such a slightly sceptical tone about the value of Actor-network Theory (see here if you’ve not come across it before), which given the other papers being presented could be quite entertaining. It’s part of a project we’re working on with Elaine Thomas looking at current state of play of ‘hybrid’ digital/material resources in networked learning (for example, remote labs or other physical devices which are linked to distributed learning). For me, interest in this was triggered by some of the ideas we looked at in the IBZL project.
