Abstract

Since his inception, the bricoleur has travelled widely and been used for many purposes. This article explores how the concept of the bricoleur can help understand the ways in which students learn by using, adapting and linking social media in new ways. However using digital resources in this ways goes beyond bricolage in that it is an open-ended, ongoing, collaborative process and so the concept of clickolage is introduced to highlight how students can learn from their relationship with multimedia objects, and each other.
