An alternative view: Changing Paradigms, by Crispin Weston

Crispin Weston, who describes himself as "a controversialist", suggests that our outlook is not progressive at all. We have a new school year, a new Secretary of State, and before too long, a new government. So this might be a good time to take stock of where we stand with education technology. The terminology we use has certainly changed. Show More Summary

Angles on Open

I spoke briefly, and almost certainly disjointedly, at the Open VA meeting yesterday. The focus of the panel was “open pedagogy/curriculum” and the whole day was focused on open education concepts. My topic was simply labeled MOOC. As the day progressed I tried to get a sense of the audience and figure out what would I […]

12 Tools for Productivity on Your #Chromebook and #iPad

Have you ever asked yourself, "Can I do that with this device?" It's a lot of fun. For example, the iPad has become a bit of a boring tool for me, not because it's hard to do things with it, but rather, because I feel like I've mapped out workflows for what I commonly do. Show More Summary

FacetWP – a semi-tutorial

I don’t usually usually pay for WordPress plugins but this is one I’ve come to like1 quite a bit. To start off, I have a historic interest in facet based searching.

Ames High band: Modeling innovation, risk-taking, and feedback

I’m pretty impressed with the Ames High School band directors. Not only are Chris Ewan and Andrew Buttermore facilitating a great band program musically (250+ students who give amazing performances), they also are modeling instructional innovation and risk-taking with technology. Show More Summary

Hello [The Wire] Baltimore

As usual in my house yesterday I had NPR Radio on in the background. The show Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me had a segment with Baltimore filmmaker John Waters as guest. PETER SAGAL: In April 2011, we talked to a man who’s made some of ourShow More Summary

Bunk y Omar Conversan con Miradas

I happily resume my role in ds106 as an open participant. With the new season starting in September at UMW being based on The Wire, I finally have the right reason to watch the whole series again (one of only two I’ve ever watched start to end; not only am I a MOOC dropout, I bail on TV too).

I’ve been having quite a few conversations around student portfolios eportfolios online representations of their learning over time. These conversations have mostly centered on using WordPress and, almost inevitably, the first instinct is to create a series of pages that are aligned to either courses or assignments. Those pages usually contain a number of different […]

Thanks to Chris Layton for inspiring this post. We had a lovely conversation at #DENSI2014 and this is my reflection from that discussion. The conversations and ideas around these ideas and their role in society can make your head spin. They range from: “Awards for students are harmful” “Learning is not a competition” “There are […]

It’s Not Amazing When the Web Forgets You

In prepping my recent call for OER Reuse Stories (which, ahem, I have collected a grand total of ZERO new ones) I was reviewing the original ones I collected the first time I did an Amazing Stories talk on 2009. By the way, that site still works despite using a defunct CoolIris embed. Show More Summary

Hollywood Cemetery – Preliminary Thoughts

I’m pretty excited about a new project we’ll be working on this year. We’re going to look at a local historically significant, but still active, cemetery through a variety of disciplinary lenses. Hollywood Cemetery is the permanent home of two presidents of the USA (James Monroe and John Tyler) and one president of the CSA […]

Little Trick, Big Numbers

I often want to know just a bit more about numbers I see in tables. As I was looking at some thing today, I stumbled on the Wikipedia page for “List of Most Viewed YouTube Videos“. After being more than a bit amazed at the utterly staggering numbers. I wanted to know what they translated […]
