Exploring the opportunities of social media to build knowledge in learner-centered Indigenous learning Spaces
This chapter explores the opportunities online learning environments offer to address issues related to Indigenous pedagogy and Indigenous approaches to teaching and learning, with a specific focus on social and mobile media. Social media tools have created many opportunities for social approaches to teaching and learning, and specifically to developing Indigenous learning communities, and overall much more explicitly learner-centered approaches. In this chapter we argue that social media are well suited to address the learning needs of Indigenous students in Australia, and at the same time we use Batchelor Institute of Indigenous Tertiary Education, and its ‘both-ways’ philosophy, as a case study to explore some of the opportunities and potential barriers that social media present within learner-centered pedagogy.
