Worshop: Hidden Labour
Chair: Janis Lena Meissner

An interactive panel discussion that builds on "The (Hidden) Technological Labour of the Hero(in)es of the Everyday" (submission 112): Now that we know how much (hidden) technological labour retail employees or mobile care workers perform on a daily basis, how can these results be used to enhance the status of these (often female-dominated and generally underpaid) occupations of the service sector?

This session takes a playful approach to visualizing some of our key findings from our interdisciplinary research study and invites the CIRN delegates to reflect further on the amount of hidden or invisible technologies that we encountered in the work environments of retail employees and mobile care workers. We will also address the question how to make our findings actionable for policies and other interventions to improve the status of these underpaid system-relevant professions – and invite the session participants to share their perspectives and ideas.

Roundtable: International Learning Ecologies: ICT, Culture, and Sustainability
Chair: Ian A. Lubin

This panel convenes to discuss the themes and perspectives advanced in the newly published edited volume, "ICT and International Learning Ecologies." The discourse surrounds the contributions from an international group of scholars and researchers whose work promotes cultural plurality and human diversity in the use of information and communications technologies (ICT). We discuss how it may be possible to bring the information world into traditional and local spaces that seek sustainable solutions, and how to preserve and sustain existing ecologies rather than supplanting or colonizing them. The panel discusses the usefulness of an ecological framework that refocuses our attention on international education and development work with ICT.

In addition to examining the rich content of the volume, the panel will also discuss challenges of conducting and publishing cultural and community-valued research that puts individuals and communities as well as learners’ multiple identities at the forefront of technological success. It is hoped that the presentation and discussion of the works in this collection will be a catalyst for advancing genuine and long-lasting education and social change that meet the challenges of this moment.
