Peter Kittle started up a crowdsourcing activity early on in the Making Learning Connected MOOC -- asking people to add tools and technology resources they were using as they were "making" projects this summer. I took that list and grouped things as best as I could, and share it here with you. A list like this can be useful to a limited degree -- in the end, what you compose and make comes from...
Digital Literacies in a Networked World is a graduate seminar at Penn, in which the class explores and analyzes how literacy and learning are constantly evolving, as students become not only consumers, but also makers of digital media. During our time in this course, we engaged with, and challenged how meaning making happens in and out of the classroom, and how diverse digital tools can be useful...
Last year I started the /Teach wiki and filled it with a bunch of links out to resources, curriculum, descriptions and other useful tidbits of content designed to support the teaching of digital literacies and spread all over the web. The wiki became my own personal dumping ground to save resources authored by the budding Webmaker community. There were lots of different types of things -...
One way to become "crazy good at the internet" is to hang out with folks who live and breathe the web and all things digital. For the past few years, I have been fortunate enough to hang out with and share many conversations with one of my favorite "geeks," Patrick Berry. Patrick, a Library Technology Lead at Chico State, is a master at explaining complex techno-babel to educators who are...
What does it mean to be literate in the 21st century? What does it mean to be a global citizen? And what role might literature play in understanding this world we share?WorldLiterate is a site founded to explore these key questions. WorldLiterate is an open access collection inviting everyone to explore the many worlds of literature. The vast and various journeys captured in world literature have...
open.jpg All rights reserved. There is a lot of talk about "open" these days. It's the new black. It's cool and hip, and marketeers are calling their products "open," whether they are or not. But what does "open" really mean? And why should we care? For the purposes of this discussion, "open" refers to content that can be remixed, modified, and redistributed by...

In March 2012, my colleague Chris Fosen and I attended and presented at SXSWedu. Now that it is summer, I have some time to collect my notes and share thoughts with the Digital Is community. You may also be interested in submitting your ideas, classroom practices, or research for a SXSWedu panel for 2013. The Panel Picker should open in August 2012. Below, I share links, summaries of a few...
For the past several weeks I have been working on creating a curriculum map for my 7th/8th grade language arts classes. As a staff, my colleagues and I felt this was important to put into place what and how we are actucally covering each standard and strand in our classroom. Though this will be a work in progress, I am trying to polish it and make it a document that is ready for next year and the...
It's March 1, around 8:30 p.m., and I'm trying to launch, with the same enthusiasm that I felt at the Annual Meeting in November, a DI blog post-a-day project throughout March.  The minutes are ticking away at the end of a long day, but I feel a commitment to this idea that grew out of an engaging DI workshop, which reminded me of the many ways to connect with this remarkable database and...
So often in my teaching career - and as a student, actually - I have seen and heard teachers forbid the use of the powerful computers inside students' pockets, scold a student for having consulted Wikipedia, restricted Internet use to sites they approved, and regard the online writing and social networking the students conduct as a "waste of time." I have also faced opposition from these same...
