PART 3: CROSSING SPACES
"The Infrastructure of Space: Expanding Writing Classroom Activity into the Extracurriculum"
Douglas Walls and Leslie Wolcott
Walls and Wolcott explore ways of hacking the virtual space of classrooms. The authors consider how digital objects such as digital mapping tools and learning management systems can allow students and their work to shift and move through the physical walls of their assigned classrooms.
Through the lens of actor network theory, the authors argue that digital tools can act as activity-generating objects, but only if—and when—networks of people and activities around those objects exist in a way that invite opportunities for meaningful writing work.
