Tom Woodward whipped up a plugin to clone posts on a WordPress Multi-site blog to one of your own.
I think this could be a really useful way of giving pupils a template for e-Portfolio post. I’d be very interested in exploring getting this into Glow Blogs. I’ve been asked about this sort of functionality a few times.
@cogdog beautiful Not So Stupid WordPress Tricks | None That Involve Writing Code site and presentation for #PressEdConf19 conference. I’ll be consuming the #PressEdConf19 feast for a while.
WordPress for presentations is a great idea. I couldn’t follow live so appreciate this more than a pp. WordPress can post replies to tweets too;-) #pressEDconf19 #IndieWeb
I’ve read a bit about Hyperdocs over the last few years. It has never made complete sense to me, it seems to be trying to recreate webpages with google documents.
I wonder if https://glitch.com might point to a better way? It certainly would solve the template problem…
Listened to Artificial intelligence explained on Kara Swisher Recode Decode podcast – Recode
Instead of talking about far-flung super-intelligent AI, they argued on the latest episode of Recode Decode, we should be talking about the ways AI is affecting people right now, in everything from education to policing to hiring. Rather than killer robots, you should be concerned about what happens to your résumé when it hits a program like the one Amazon tried to build.
“They took two years to design, essentially, an AI automatic résumé scanner,” Crawford said. “And they found that it was so biased against any female applicant that if you even had the word ‘woman’ on your résumé that it went to the bottom of the pile.”
Great listen. The comparison of how China is implementing AI, at a national level, compared to the huge corporations made me think.
You’re looking at a set of practices, in that case, that is pretty similar to a social credit score in China, but under different auspices. The public is not aware, there is no process of acknowledgement or consent there. This is happening sort of under the cover of proprietary private sector tech that is actually not disclosed to the people that it’s going to affect.

@livedtime the F shaped reading pattern was a fascinating read, I could identify the behaviours while I was reading it!
