Abstract

In this chapter, we will explore the relationships between a number of patterns and trends in higher education, namely the reconceptualisation of students as producers rather than solely as consumers of knowledge, and the evolution of the idea of digital and data literacies, in relation to the development of ideas about networked learning. We will explore these relationships through the lens of a series of inquiries which were part of programme of technological and pedagogical research and development designed to explore the educational potential of semantic web and linked open data approaches. This involved participatory design and development activities involving teacher and students in higher education institutions in the United Kingdom. Our contention is that this provides insights into the development of critical perspectives on networked learning and highlights ways in which teachers and students can reconnect with the radical and emancipatory purposes of higher education.
