  • Hi Catherine. Thanks for your post. Interesting to see how slides live their own live in the cyberspace! I'm nor sure how understandable my slides are without a context but hopefully they give some inspiration. Hopefully you are aple to find my book. You may 'look inside' from the Amazon web page:

    The preface is available here:

    And thanks for the conversation about third space, I already added it to the Pinterest.

  • Hello Reijo - many thanks for sharing this presentation. The ideas you share here are very connected with some of my own ideas re: Third Space learning in higher education. I found your Slideshare & Twitter page thanks to Mary Ann Reilly's post last week -- which was a response to a conversation between myself and Kathrine Jensen re: Third Place, Third Space & liminality

    Glad to be connected with you now -- and I am looking forward to reading your book 'Media & Digital Literacies in Secondary School'.

  • 1. Learning in 3rd space Prof. II Reijo Kupiainen See:!
  • 2. Third space The idea of third space comes from hybridity theory (Homi Bhabha), which refers to to mixture, posits that people draw on multiple resources or funds to make a sense of the world and constitute their identity. Originally hybridity is a cross between two separate cultures: not diversity but hybridity Cultural hybridity is a in-between place, which brings together contradictory knowledges, practices, and discourses: signs can be appropriated, translated, rehistoricized, and read anew (c.f. remixing culture)

  • 6. Home Heterotopos School Rejection of binaries Michel Foucault (1967). On other spaces. foucault.heteroTopia.en.html - heterotopias: places that are ambivalent and uncertain, either because they are new and as-yet unknown or because they are impossible archaic representations of former modes of social order that have become obsolete. (Kevin Hetherington (1997). The badlands of modernity: Heterotopia and social ordering)
  • 7. Alternative social orders
  • 8. Tactics Although, for example, the school space is controlled, it is not absolutely dominated. As Ian Buchanan (1993, para. 21) wrote, controlled space is “reactive rather than active. It is subject to appropriation: its disciplined/dominated spaces... can always be made smooth by their occupants by the act of occupancy itself.” This “occupancy” is tactic. De Certeau (1984) spoke about everyday resistance, in which people undermine imposed power relations.! Kupiainen, R. 2013, Media and Digital Literacies in Secondary School, p. 21
  • 9. Rejection of binaries Here Mobile There
  • 10. Rejection of binaries Physical Augmented Virtual
  • 11. Rejection of binaries Private Networked publics Public - Networked publics are spaces that are constructed through networked technologies and collective spaces that emerge from the intersection of people, technology, and practice (danah boyd (2011). Social network sites as networked publics: Affordances, dynamics, and implications. In Z. Papacharissi, (Ed.) A Networked self: Identity, community, and culture on social network sites)
  • 12. Third-space learning Creating new learning spaces in education Learning in hybrid, networked, bridged (between lifeworld and schooling), dynamic, multimodal, and open time-space. ”Learning in the context of everyday experiences of participation in the world”
  • 13. Problems ”Knowmad society” (knowledge + nomad) (Besselink, de Bree, Cobo, Hart et al., Knowmad Society) Connected with everybody, everywhere, anytime Lifelong learning = ”life imprisonment learning” Flexible workers in the new economy Technological determinism
