A proposal.

(~: = could be to)

Evolution of Memes:

  • Memes are to evolution of culture what genes are to evolution of individuals.
  • Memes as counterculture.

Research Questions:

  • Could memes become educational tools themselves, not in—or as—theory but in practice?
  • Could specific instances of internet memes—like animated GIFs—disseminated through social media—like Twitter—serve the purpose of lectures delivered in the classroom?
  • Could educators embark in non-traditional education by examining and exploiting internet memes’ inherent qualities as shared, duplicated, replicated and potentially viral content that does not require institutional validation?
  • HOW CAN INTERNET MEMES BE HARNESSED AS EDUCATIONAL INSTRUMENTS?

Relevance

  • Education as freely shared information
  • Education as suggested pathways
  • Education beyond classroom

Methodology
