Title Framing the Healthy Nation : Electronic educational governance and platform subjectivation
Author Tzimoula, Despina
Date 2016
English abstract
In Sweden most educational levels rely more and more on electronic platforms that are used in pre-schools and schools where each pupil receives a profile into which teachers, school administrators, the school’s health team, parents and of the pupil him/herself, has access to. The platform provides information of the pupils’ progress in different disciplines, grades and projects are presented through text, photographs and video clips. The attempt of this paper is to discuss the platforms as a mean to the internalization of techniques of monitoring the self. This is particularly interesting when it comes to health discourses related to the social body, the national body and the individual body. The school as institution has traditionally relied on and created groups and assessed the individual in relation to these groups. Eventually the system changes to focus primarily on the pupil as individual from the beginning. This gives a perceived freedom to a tailored education for each pupil, though it is a freedom with limits. The empirical material of the study consists of variations of electronical platforms used by Swedish schools. The material will be genealogically analysed. The method used could be characterized as netnography or online ethnography. The expected outcome of this study is to relate the archaeological and genealogical discussions of subject creation (processes of subjectifications) to the practises presented themselves through software. In contemporary school systems, a portion of the articulation of these practises are presented through electronical platforms.
