This research article explores the potential of emancipatory ecologies in education by leveraging Jupyter notebooks and cloud technologies to delve into the phenomenological milieu of learning environments. Emancipatory ecologies emphasize the importance of empowering learners and creating inclusive, participatory educational spaces that foster critical thinking, agency, and social justice. However, the implementation of such ecologies requires innovative tools and platforms that enable collaborative, scalable, and accessible learning experiences. This study investigates the use of Jupyter notebooks, an open-source interactive computing platform, in conjunction with cloud technologies to create an emancipatory educational ecosystem.
The research design of this study is rooted in a phenomenological approach, drawing on the lived experiences and perceptions of participants to explore the impact of Jupyter notebooks and cloud technologies on educational practices. Using a mixed-methods research design, data will be collected through qualitative interviews, observations, and quantitative surveys to gain a comprehensive understanding of the complex interactions between learners, instructors, and the technological affordances in the educational milieu.
The findings of this research will contribute to a deeper understanding of the potential of Jupyter notebooks and cloud technologies in supporting emancipatory ecologies in education. Through an analysis of the data, this study aims to identify the ways in which these tools can empower learners, facilitate collaboration, and promote critical thinking. Additionally, the study will shed light on the challenges and opportunities associated with the integration of Jupyter notebooks and cloud technologies in educational practices, providing insights for educators, policymakers, and technology developers.
