Tracking down learning: How do self-trackers talk about mundane learning experiences

Abstract [en]

This paper will reflect on the preliminary findings from a newly launched project that investigates how the embodied knowledge that emerges through the use of self tracking technologies informs how people experience, perceive their bodies, and imagine and orient their actions towards the futures of their bodies. The first group of participants are collected from a loosely organised group known as Quantified Self, whose members are driven by the idea that collecting and analysing detailed data about their everyday activity can help them improve their lives. The preliminary findings will map and qualitatively analyse the user-produced content on the QS-website in relation to how self-tracking practices in everyday life are accounted for. It will focus on the verbal categories and narratives through which participants discuss their technologies, bodies, and their biographies of self-tracking, specifically when talking about how self-tracking become part of embodied, experiential and mundane learning experiences.
