The Problem with Gutenberg

Updated: Nov 2, 2022

Day 1 of NDF 2015, 11.00am session, Tuesday 13 October 2015

Makerspaces are physical spaces used to experiment with creation and manipulation of digital and physical objects, usually in a communal setting. These spaces are often related to the reduction of boundaries between the physical and the digital, such as with 3D printers. Post-literacy is a period when popular and institutional cultures no longer privilege reading and writing, and oral culture strategies are used for communication and learning. Makerspaces are demonstrated to be examples of post-literacy in action. Makerspace strategy could thus apply learning and communication strategies from oral cultures. This talk will present post-literacy as a viable framework for makerspace strategy and direction, particularly for Aotearoa New Zealand.
