Knowing Through Numbers: How Corporeal Data Become Life-based Learning Resources
2016 (Swedish)In: Association for Cultural Studies, Crossroads in Cultural Studies Conference 14-17th December, 2016, 2016, 90-91 p.Conference paper, Abstract (Refereed)
This paper discusses how embodied and emplaced learning cultures emerge through the use of self-tracking technologies. The findings are based in interviews with accustomed self-trackers, investigating how the produced corporeal data become part of how they experience and perceive their bodies and their environments. The empirical examples presented in the paper elaborate on the tangibility of these data and how they in their visual and touchable forms afford people to turn their attention toward previously unarticulated and visceral dimensions of embodied learning activities that are part of their everyday life. This includes examples of how people experience both gain and lack of meaning of data in self tracking activities, shifting focus from conceptualising data as ‘knowledge’ per se and instead focus on what and how people learn through their experience of data and how these learning cultures can be understood in a wider pedagogical context.
