In this paper, we build up on the discussion of Harley’s (1989) canonical paper Deconstructing the map and try to develop a deconstructive practice for reflexive cartography in educational contexts based on a Derridean approach.
Assessing New Spaces – Social Media and Educational Implications
Christina Reithmeier, Detlef Kanwischer
Goethe-Universität Frankfurt am Main, Deutschland
Social media like YouTube, WhatsApp or Instagram are popular among adolescents. Sharing posts with text, photos or hashtags produces new constructions of spaces that simultaneously reflects and affects the perception of these spaces. Media determine the structures of worldviews on a fundamental level and alter adolescents’ self-perception and their relation to the world. However, little is known about the influence and patterns of the perception and reception processes of space among adolescents in the context of the changed spatial assignment of meaning through digitization processes.
First, we analyse empirical studies that investigate the production of space via social media. These studies examine data from platforms like Twitter or Instagram, and show that spaces are produced by practices like posting opinions, hashtags or linking activities to geotagged locations. They implicate, that these emerging constructions of space affect our perception, action and experience of spaces.
In a second step, we will link these results to the findings of studies on the use of social media by adolescents in order to identify how significant adolescents’ social media activities are for their perception and reception of space. The results of these studies will then be discussed from a reflective approach on geomedia education.
