For the CLMOOC Pop-Up Make Cycle for #DigiWriMo, we invited people to help annotate an interview of Troy Hicks about digital literacies. The Edutopia article by Todd Finley is a few years old, but holds up remarkably well, I think. We have been using the Hypothesis annotation tool, which allows you to collaboratively add comments and media in the margins of a web-based article. It's a great way...

I don't claim to understand all of the data analysis that goes on when people research and examine all of the elements of our social interactions in places like Twitter and beyond. Here, for example, is what the Innovator's Mindset MOOC looked like from a data analysis viewpoint. I grapple with making sense of it all, but it fascinates me just the same, particularly when a visual is teamed up...
The post first appeared on my blog, All Hands on Deck, at the end of August 2016. It emerged as part of a discussion about remix, digital writing, etc., in the #clmooc2016 community. Kevin Hodgson and Sheri Edwards responded, beginning a thought-provoking conversation in several digital spaces. Kevin suggested I repost this here.  Introduction This post is dangerous. It calls into question some...

I do make sure I try things out first on my own. As a sort of mental checklist, I consider a few things before bringing a new tech idea into the...
A pop-up, unofficial, experimental #clmooc make cycle    Screen Shot 2016-03-26 at 9.20.35 AM.png   A Google image search on terms like “political memes” or “election memes” provides a reading experience markedly different than opening the morning paper. This instant, biased, collage of pictures is the most complex of digital footprints, still new to even the...

(Year One Emergence Ideas: CLMOOC) The concept of “emergent ideas” has been on my mind this week through a few different lenses. First, I am planning out a three-hour Make Hack Play session for the New England Association of Teachers of English (NEATE) Conference next weekend, and the ethos of Connected Learning and the Making Learning Connected Massive Open Online Collaboration is driving my...

(This originally appeared at Kevin's Meandering Mind) Each year, when I teach Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt, I make sure to read the first few chapters out loud to my sixth graders. This gives them a feel for the poetic style of writing and allows them to visualize some important elements of the setting. It also leads me to a great passage on page 7 that always sparks interesting...

(This first appeared at Kevin's Meandering Mind) I've been up and down with systems thinking all this week in the Making Learning Connected MOOC. What I mean by that is that I've had days where I have been playing with a systems thinking approach and other days where thinking about systematic inequities has me struggling with how to address problems that seem larger than me. The chart above is...
(This was first posted at Kevin's Meandering Mind) What an interesting week this has been with playing around with mediums for digital composition, shifting a single short poem here and there into the corners of digital tools all in an effort to see what might happen, as the Making Learning Connected MOOC dove into the concept of “remediation.” Here are links to what I have been doing: Day One:...
Our first deceptively simple first challenge was to Unmake an Introduction. The idea was to do more than simply introduce ourselves, but to explore and challenge the idea of identity and how context influences the ways we identify ourselves. More than that we were charged to explore how these identities come with built in boundaries that can include or exclude others as well as help us make...
