#tdc3296, nine years you say, a butterfly dream.
#tds2030 one thing about blogging is you find out things you though were permanent were not
A good place to learn about detecting online disinformation is @holden’s site Hapgood. Aimed at undergraduates it would be great for teachers to help our own understanding.
How this translates into secondary and primary education I don’t know. In primary I’ve used the Save The Pacific Northwest Tree Octopus site. Used to use Mozzila’s long gone hackasaurus to fake web pages to add pupils to BBC webpages. I find it hard to move pupils off the goole search results to an actual site, never mind comparing two.
Technology seem to be making things increasingly easy for us while hiding the possibilities of developing real digital understanding…
The linked article, Edtech Needs Recoding to Transform Student ‘Users’ Into Digital Citizens – The Reboot is interesting.
Institutions have chosen to submerge students in a culture of computing that normalizes surveillance, exploitation, and control as if these were the objective features of computing itself. Can technological practice within education look any different?
A part of the suggested solution
supporting students to collectively design and govern their educational tools. There’s no better way to show them how tools can affect their thinking and social interactions, and to prepare them to critically shape the technologies that in turn shape our world.
I wonder how this can be addresses in primary & secondary education. The normalisation of the culture begins, surely, in the home & early education. I wonder if many educators even start to consider this problem. In my own sector, primary, where would we start?
First of all, I think it’s really important that we put kids first and don’t worry too much about “lost learning”. No matter what age they are, their schoolwork is not more important than their wellbeing.
Yup, it is a pity this needs to be said, but it does.
I am glad you posted this. I like bookmarklets. I run one a bit like this via AppleScript on my mac. This has an advantage of letting me add a keyboard to send straight to the clipboard.
I am going to add the indieweb mark up to that using Chris’s script for reference. Like you I couldn’t get it working at first I had to mess around with he single and double quotes. This works for me:
I do not think you need to worry about imposter syndrome. I went along to OER 16 where I was allowed to do some podcasting I was made very welcome. The whole conference was really exciting. Although the majority of folk there were in higher ed I didn’t feel uncomfortable being a primary teacher. A repeated thread was that open meant many different things can could be taken many different ways. I think presenting about your blog and how it work for you would make a great session. I certainly have alway thought of it as an essential open educational resource.
#tdc3274 #ds106 RIP Flash. I recall Flash with fondness. Anything “influenced by HyperTalk” can’t be all bad. Got edu licenses for MX 2004 & taught kids some animation fun. Enjoyed the scripting. Played with & made stuff, once got paid! Action Script 3 was 2 hard for me.
