  2. Sep 2017
    1. We weren’t satisfied with the routine of waking up, going to work, coming home, eating dinner, watching TV, going to bed…and repeating. We felt bored with our lives in Canada and were tired of not having enough time to spend with one another. We were tired of being tired. So, we booked a typical 1 week, all-inclusive vacation in Mexico together. A vacation that gave us the travel bug.

      This could give credibility to the bloggers because it connects their audience to a more personal level that they're just normal people who love travelling rather than a company that wants to get your money.

    1. Concerns

      Here's another concern:

      Let's say this bot-powered annotation "agora" starts to operate as Mike has laid it out. The annotations from that credibility activity alone may start to become noisy—and much noisier if 1,000 other bots start annotating for other purposes.

      One solution would be a dedicated "credibility" layer, where only the annotations from "registered" or "approved" credibility annotators appear. That way a user could activate just this credibility layer to focus on credibility signals.

      But if there's going to be a "credibility" layer, who is going to gatekeep participation? One might imagine a trusted, "neutral" organization that would publish criteria for participation in this credibility layer and enable annotators that meet such criteria.

      And just as there could be multiple annotators—bots or human—with different points of view posting to such a layer, there could also be multiple credibility layers, each administered by a different organization with different points of view, sources, and/or approaches. A sort of agora of credibility agoras. Users could then pay attention to the credibility layers they find most useful.

      But, users could pay attention to just the credibility layer they find most agrees with their established point of view. Would this just move the same issues we see with the credibility of information to the credibility layer itself? Would #fakecred become an industry like #fakenews?

    2. Annotation As a Marketplace for Context

      I'm generally in agreement about the problem area and solutions Mike proposes here. One thing we probably certainly know is that the "automated, centralized, closed approaches" that we have already seen attempting to address issues of this scope are unlikely to solve all the issues we are already seeing around credibility.

    3. Marketplace

      Could we use "agora" or some other term rather than "marketplace" to suggest that not all activities in the space will be mercantile?

The most recent high-profile paper making this argument was published in January by researchers at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administra-tion and the University of Colorado at Boulder.

    3. The majority of the public supports wind power.2. Opposition to wind power is therefore deviant.3. Opponents are ignorant or misinformed.4. The reason for understanding opposition is to overcome it.5. Trust is key.

      Author clearly indicates what she will do in the article. What does that mean to you?

    4. The arguments presented in this section resonate with theliterature relating to Public Understanding of Science (PUS). ThePUS movement arose in response to a perceived threat to thelegitimacy of science resulting from a breakdown of public trust(Gregory and Miller, 1998).

      Author identifies another core term or concept central to this issue.

    5. More balanced descriptionsof wind farm opponents and supporters are provided byBarryet al. (2008),Ellis et al. (2007)andBell et al. (2005).Barry et al.(2008)conducted a rhetorical analysis of documents written byboth supporters and opponents of wind power and confirmedthat

      The author is indicating that this work is more balanced than other citations. What does that say to you?

    6. A prominent example of this effect is the now widelydiscredited Not-In-My-BackYard (NIMBY) explanation. Accordingto NIMBY explanations of opposition to wind power develop-ments individuals or communities ‘favour wind power as anabstract concept but oppose wind power projects in their area’(Warren et al., 2005, p. 857).

      The author identifies key terminology and concepts in the issue. What does that say to you?

    7. It has been contended that new wind power developments arebecoming ever more difficult to realise and this is frequentlyattributed, at least partly, to localised public opposition to suchdevelopments (Barry et al., 2008;Bell et al., 2005;Devine-Wright,2007,Ellis et al., 2007;Peel and Lloyd, 2007)

      The author has included a number of citations and studies. What does that say to you?

    8. To support thisassumption it routinely refers to opinion poll data or the findingsof surveys to suggest that public support for the technology is, ingeneral, high (for example;Barry et al., 2008;Bell et al., 2005among many others). Although there is some evidence to suggestthat this may be true (seeMcGowan and Sauter, 2005;POST,2007),

      The authors is presenting arguments and counterarguments. Does that impact your perception of credibility?

    1. and I must always let that stirring call me to critical practice in my teaching.

      Being stirred, being called - these require being open, permeable and thus, vulnerable. This is where we lay aside our armor of credibility and create space for the unknown, unanticipated to enter. This is emotional work and for many of us, scary work. There are many reasons for academia to cloak itself in layer upon layer of credibility, rigor and firm hierarchies. To suggest that love inspires you to be in fact more critical in your practice, defies the logic of the academy. This is part of what I find so compelling here: turning established assumptions on their heads. I have more to say about callings but will save for another space & occasion. (But Gregg Levoy, Callings. 1999.)

      If you can, you might share some of your pre-ed work experience. This often conveys seriousness and valuable experience coming into the classroom.

    1. Experience

      You have had a lot of experience for a sophomore! For all the different age groups you've worked in and block experiences under your belt you might share a focused detail about each one or link to the schools where you've interned to give more depth to these "references."

    2. helping her out

      This connection to your mother is instant credibility! You might list some of the ways you helped her out here (perhaps err on the unexpected or concrete side of things to keep our attention) to make this story stick and begin to establish your authority from a very young age.

    1. This is a great start. I hear your hopes, your credibility and authority (long past and present line of ELA eds), and your love (quote). Be sure to use the visual affordances of the webtext and consider hyperlinking, even if it's to your favorite author's open online collection or your goodreads feed (just a shot in the dark, but brainstorming here with you).

    1. I instantly knew it was something I wanted to do

      I love your story and want you to continue to sharpen it. I think it speaks volumes. Explaining what you felt in this moment, what appealed to you, how it shaped your vision might take this story one step closer to really helping your reader get a sense of your motivations from this moment.

    2. I am a double major in spanish and special education

      This detail conveys your seriousness as a student and your marketability in a city full of bilingual folks.

      Show this a bit more, if you keep it here. I feel like there is a one sentence story possible (see Ruben's page for an example)

    1. I feel like I have a cultural connection in these classrooms

      Worth another sentence, I think, to establish your cultural connection.

    2. I have been working with students on understanding how to graph information, aspects of 3-Dimensional shapes, and we are now moving on to fractions beginning with halves.

      These images and this caption speak volumes about experience you are getting in the field. They go above and beyond the about page assignment.

    1. Living in such a small town there is really not much to do, so to pass time, me and my siblings would play basketball at the one court that my town had just about every night (the days were too hot).

      I have an instant image of this routine in my mind. This is such a quick story and it contributes to your credibility and authority as a physical educator. You've got to display your lifelong learning and identity as a physically active person and you're doing it, concretely and credibly.

    1. I am eager to enter the field of education with the same passion for kids that I have as a coach. 

      Immediate credibility and a rationale for sharing this in relation to your future as an educator. Well-stated.

    1. She is the reason I want to work with students.

      Sounds like a real inspiration. I wonder if you might quote her? I am also looking at this and wondering about balance. How can we fit you and your strengths back into this page before we leave it, as readers? Is there a way to bring us back to you through a moment mentioning the image or the metaphor it might illustrate, experience it conveys about you and who you are as an educator? (just brainstorming)

    2. The next step I am planning to get my masters in Speech Pathology in hopes of someday working with the deaf who are hoping to become vocal. For now, I plan on focusing in the field of Special Education.

      Having a multi-tiered, detailed plan really establishes your credibility as a serious student of special education.

    1. And thats the kind of educator I want to be!

      I agree with Brooke and Christen that you've got a nice framework here to develop. The picture tells a story, invites us into your family (I'm guessing, but a caption would clarify that) and your final line referencing your role in the family helps us learn about this familial role and the connection you see between it and your future as an educator. Now it's time to take things to the next level and share some of those specifics like your certificate level, perhaps an inspiration, a mentor, a quote, something about what you hope this site might do for your future students or their families. All these potential details will establish your credibility and begin to convey your authority.

    1. Thanks, John. I honestly appreciate it. Hope to be in contact with you soon.

      I liked hearing his voice here. Sounds like someone who's easy to relate to and available. Also shows he's "contact-able" through the site (in 2010).
