        • The Downfall Jenga


          from Alexandros Kosmidis / Added

          This project utilises Jenga as a visual metaphor for the game of politics. Due to our cultural backgrounds and shared interest in politics, Daniela Osorio and I chose to subvert the image of the Red Budget Box, reimagining its contents as the game of Jenga. We redesigned each block to display, on opposite sides, a positive and negative quality of governance. When the blocks are repositioned at the top, they destabilise the tower by replacing its good features with bad ones, illustrating the effects of bad politics.

                  • Ben Williamson - Programmable Schools? Governing education through code in the smart city

                    Along with the ‘smart city,’ the idea of the ‘smart school’ is emerging in recent imaginings of the future of education. Various organizations and actors have begun to envisage education as a highly coded, software-mediated, data-driven, and computationally-programmable social institution. These consist of commercial initiatives, such as IBM’s ‘Smarter Classroom’ project and Microsoft’s ‘Educated Cities’ programme, as well as non-commercial projects from organizations such as Nesta’s Policy Lab and Glasgow City Council. Smart schools are emerging ‘sociotechnical imaginaries’ formed of a mixture of technological fantasies and related technical developments. The presentation will provide a survey of the key features of emerging smart schools. In particular, it will focus on the constant flows of data smart schools depend on and the ‘quantified students’ they produce; the digital policy instruments used to monitor and measure them; the ways that students are solicited to ‘learn to code’ in order to become ‘smart citizens’ in the digital governance of the smart city; and emerging techniques of predictive ‘learning analytics’ that enable student data to be used to anticipate their behaviours and pre-empt their futures. Such schools are presented as becoming to some degree ‘sentient,’ programmed with the capacity to learn and adapt to the learner. These features are characteristic of a new technocratic way of conceptualizing educational practices and spaces and of emerging modes of both ‘real-time’ and ‘future-tense’ digital education governance.
