During summer 2014, the Toronto-based iSquare team and eleven international collaborators (shown below) launched a project to explore visual conceptions of information worldwide. Participants implemented the iSquare protocol to collect drawings of information from their classrooms. Altogether, the far flung team generated 541 "international iSquares" and is now conducting visual content analysis to characterize the drawings. Findings will be reported at conferences and in journals of information studies in 2016.
videos from our international collaborators
At the midway point of the project (November 2015), our international collaborators in Brazil, Finland, France, Iran/Malaysia, Russia, and Taiwan produced videos to describe their experiences. An edited, 11-minute compilation can be seen, at left. (Video editing and subtitles are by Bridgette Kelly and Stephanie Power.)
Here, you can also watch the individual 3-minute videos from Brazil (Mr. Lucas Almeida & Ms. Adriana Carla Silva de Oliveira), Finland (Dr. Isto Huvila), France (Dr. Fidelia Ibekwe-SanJuan), Iran/Malaysia (Ms. Zohre Dehghani), Russia (Dr. Galina Olzoeva), and Taiwan (Dr. Tien-I Tsai).
