Using Goldman’s "quisitive" mixed methods research, I layered and iteratively analyzed the data throughout the course of the research.
I conducted an analysis of participant households’ experiences with ecopedagogical interventions within the socio-ecological system of production and consumption in Rockaway, Queens, New York City.
Although Twitter is often considered a site for casual communication, it has been playing an increasingly important role in social organization, mobilization, and in drawing attention to world events.
This study looks at participants’ experiences in building their professional networks and their evolving approach to scholarly communication, including an analysis of the participants’ extensive Twitter archives: in aggregate over 454,000 individual tweets over a 9-year period.
Findings indicate that 1) efforts to target individual attitudes and behaviors (a common practice in ecopedagogy) are constrained due to difficulties overcoming the problems of sustainable resilience, including issues with accessing information and food access, as well as issues with local cultures of consumption; and 2) ethos and information are important ecopedagogical constructs for leveraging psychological determinants such as self-identity and building operationalizable schema regarding sustainable resilience.
Recommendations for future research include the development of topic-specific principles that can be operationalized in the praxis of educational design for ecopedagogy.
Analysis of the interviews and archives focused on the intersection of the participants’ Twitter lives and their academic lives.
Drawing on an integration of sociological and learning science theory, this research explores Twitter’s use as a platform for innovative academic practices; as a catalyst for challenging hierarchy and formality; as a new model for academic networking; and as an evolving platform for a new definition of the public intellectual.
