I created this animation as a presentation of data generated from a survey of edcmchat participants. Twitter allows us to belong, to connect, to be excited and happy (and addicted) Fundamental human needs satisfied in 140 characters or less. An animation that utilises some of the results to our survey for the #edcmchat on 26-01-2013

This artefact explores 2 themes. Utopian and dystopian visions of being "always on" are represented in the neglected home image. Engaged and connected learning is richly rewarding but requires immersion in the virtual and disconnection from other aspects of life in various different ways. What it means to be human in the virtual world now and in the future is explored through a series of edcMOOC student artefacts which focus on twitter communication, through the ways in which the tweetchat conversations were interpreted. It was the fundamental human characteristics related to belonging, connecting, pleasure and excitement that captured our imagination. We look for the human touch in the virtual world. As the lines between ourselves and our devices becomes blurred, even without being physically "plugged in" perhaps we need to keep check on the human condition. Considerations on the future of technology enhanced learning are depicted in a series of images which question the value of what and how we learn in a technology dominated environment .
