I'm currently writing my masters thesis in arts & crafts at Telemark University College, Notodden, Norway. In short, my project deals with how we learn from each other while we participate in a digitally networked community - like deviantART.
What we learn, could be different things: how to make the art we like to make, or to make new kinds of art. Some use the network to hone their skills, others to make contacts in the industries they would like to work in later on. My goal is to describe some main trends, and back these up with reliable information. And the most interesting information is often what people think. Since I'm going to be a school teacher, it's also interesting to figure out what about the way stuff's done "online" that the traditional schools and classrooms are missing out on - and why.
