1:30 – Session: Virtual Resource Pools–Pinterest, TeachersPayTeachers, YouTube, Open Educational Resource
This presentation will present the notion of a Fifth Estate within the digital age, redefining network influence (Dutton, 2009). As power and influence is negotiated across executive, judicial, and legislative enterprises, media—the Fourth Estate, and networks of influence amongst individuals within the Fifth Estate, present a new form of educational professionalism. Here, educators, researchers, and the community may engage directly in virtual space. Within this space, we examine the emergence of a teacherpreneurial guild, in which teachers independently seek out supplemental resources and professional social networks within virtual spaces, circumventing traditional hierarchies of information diffusion and educational change. As influence and agency is redistributed within the fifth estate and 21st century schooling, this presentation examines the role of teacher professionalism from class to cloud.
