Identity and Classroom Culture as Lenses for Understanding Student Success

Abstract

"Mobilize builds on teenagers' engagement, creativity and dexterity with mobile technology. At the heart of Mobilize is the CENS Participatory Sensing system - an innovative method of data collection and analysis in which students use mobile phones and web services to collect and interpret data about issues important to them.

We hypothesize that Mobilize's innovative approach to engaging students in real-world, self-authored campaigns will make data collection and interpretation relevant to individual students and their collective causes, and will facilitate classroom norms and practices that afford opportunities for students to develop identities that embody proficiency in the "culture of power," a sense of self as a "doer" and creator of a discipline, cultural relevance, and critical consciousness."
