    1. friendly digital helper is a good idea in digital products for children. Designing a virtual helper, cool and cute character that will help children to navigate through the product, can make the user experience smoother and more interactive.
    2. You can use this insight as a base for online educational platforms for children. For example, include design elements that show progress and achievements.
    1. What are some of the best practices for kids’ UX design?
    2. What are some top UX design principles when designing for kids?Some important UX design principles when designing for kids are as follows. Simplicity and clarity Interactive and engaging elements Age-appropriate content Safety and privacy Consistent feedback and rewards

      There's 5 in this list and there was 4 in the other - I think Safety and Privacy is the one additional but it's also in my proposal because I am concerned about it too.

    3. The needs of children, when it comes to digital designs, vary from those of adults. However, several UX principles, design patterns, and preferences hold for kids and adults. The overarching goal of any design, i.e., to create valuable and usable solutions for a user, stays the same for all audiences.

    1. 3. Importance of feedback For a positive user experience, feedback plays a significant role. If the users get appropriate and quick feedback from a physical or digital design, they can gain interest, leading to a good user experience. The importance of immediate feedback gets even more pronounced in the case of kids when their attention span is less than that of adults.

      Feedback and how important it is.

    1. Thank you all for the detailed feedback. I want to emphasize we value your feedback. We believe it is a huge advantage for us to be able create GitLab transparently here in the community, with your contributions, whether they be ideas and analysis here or in actual code. Thank you for your excitement and passion.
    2. @josephmarty mentioned desired outcomes as a focus. That is great. We encourage all types of feedback. Whether you want to highlight a problem, a desired outcome, have a design or implementation. Whatever you have, we welcome the ideas and encourage ongoing conversation.

    1. This 1% of humanity uses its awesome power to manipulate societal aspirations and the narratives around climate change. These extend from well-funded advertising to pseudo-technical solutions, from the financialisation of carbon emissions (and increasingly, nature) to labelling extreme any meaningful narrative that questions inequality and power.

    1. Agreed that this is very well done; however to attribute "mindless consumerism" solely to economic design is an oversimplification. It overlooks the significant role of trauma, mental health, spiritual poverty, etc. In many ways mindless consumerism has become 'medicine' for the masses to dull their pain and deep sense of isolation (all of which is welcomed under the current system as it feeds capitalism).

    1. native writers received feedback on content in the form of questions and qualified criticism, while non-native writers mainly received feedback on grammatical correctness and clarity in the form of recasts and questions. Furthermore, tutors tended to use more overtly directive forms of feedback for both native and non-native writers, including recasts and criticism.

    1. They write a bunch of crap down that they wish they’d be able to do (secretly knowing they never will) and then their task manager gets overwhelming and they drop it because there is too much noise. This is why systems like Bullet Journal thrive in a digital world. When something is too hard to migrate to a new page or notebook, you just said it’s not worth doing and you let it go. Bullet Journal is a no-first system.

      Bullet journaling works well in a noisy world because it forces people to confront what they're eventually not going to do anyway and gets them to drop it rather than leaving it on an ever-growing list.

      Carrying forward to do lists manually encourages one to quit things that aren't going to get done.

    1. One can find utility in asking questions of their own note box, but why not also leverage the utility of a broader audience asking questions of it as well?!

      One of the values of social media is that it can allow you to practice or rehearse the potential value of ideas and potentially getting useful feedback on individual ideas which you may be aggregating into larger works.

    1. For a while, I forgot how fun it is to talk to users People seem to intuitively help you if you build something useful for them. And they come up with better ideas than you do.

      One can dramatically increase their potential combinatorial creativity not only by having their own ideas run into each other, for example in a commonplace book or card index/zettelkasten, but by putting them out into the world and allowing them to very actively interact with other people and their ideas.

      Reach, engagement and other factors may also help in the acceleration, but keep in mind that you also need to have the time and bandwidth to listen and often build context with those replies to be able to extract the ultimate real value out of those interactions.

    1. Expansion is led by focus. By taking time to edit, carve up, and refactor our notes, we put focus on ideas. This starts the Great Wheel of Positive Feedback. All hail to the Great Wheel of Positive Feedback.

    1. It is crucial to establish the key feedbacks regulating, or destabilizing, each safety variable, and how they interact on different timescales. To quantitatively assess and combine these feedbacks, an established but under-used approach of calculating and combining feedback “gain” factors (Lashof, 1989) can provide a useful framework.

    1. Mark: The Japanese hypertext scholar Kumiyo Nakakoji talks about amplified representational talkback, which is a general design phenomenon. An architect, an artist, or a writer puts something on paper and then looks at it. You look at it, and then it seems different from what you had in mind, and you either correct what you’ve written, or you see that what you’ve written is right and correct your bad idea. That kind of representational talkback is fundamental to all sorts of all creative processes, from the sciences to the arts.

    1. now we go back to jakub von ogskul and we find him critiquing exactly the 00:09:20 same thing for exactly the same reasons 30 years after john dewey there on the left he has picked out the reflex arc pointing out that it is a linear throughput which leaves no room 00:09:34 for subjectivity no room for intentional action no room for meaning to arise if you if the middle is only animated by inputs then it's a puppet 00:09:47 he replaces this with a model on the right that will whose terms will not be entirely clear to you as you read the article but i want you to notice one thing about it it's circular it's not a linear 00:09:59 throughput it's circular he starts by noting the embeddedness of the body in the world and the fact that the activity of the 00:10:13 body is meaningful at all times and not separable into inputs and outputs his replacement of the linear throughput with this circular model that he elaborates in various ways 00:10:25 is remarkably prescient of the basic cybernetic insight that will arise after the second world war in which it's all feedback systems positive feedback systems negative feedback systems 00:10:37 homeostatic systems um reciprocity is always involved the fact that you do something and something is done to you at the same time that that we dance in the world 00:10:50 rather than standing apart from it and recording a movie of it so his um uncovery of this basic cybernetic principle with which one might approach the body and its being in the world is 00:11:02 remarkably prescient but these profound ideas of vulnerable are often hidden because he's well frankly so charming well he's a problematic character as we'll see lately 00:11:14 but he tells a good story and he does cool experiments

      30 years after Dewey's paper, Uexkull affirms the same finding as Dewey in his article: A Stroll Though the Worlds of Animals and Men (1934).

      In his article, Uexkull compares two diagrams, a linear input/output and a circular with subjectivity in the middle. Uekull anticipates the fundamental cybernetic concept of positive and negative feedbacks - you do something to the world and the world does something back to you.

    2. What these communities have in common is that they collectively produce very useful—and typically high-quality—applications and information, but this without any financialcompensation or legal organization. In other words, these communities consist purely of volunteerscontributing on an informal basis to a common project. From the perspective of traditionaleconomics and organizational theory, this is paradoxical (Heylighen, 2007): why would anyoneprovide such valuable services to others without being either paid or ordered to do so? Severalauthors have investigated the motives that incite people to contribute to such communities (Ghosh,2005; Lerner & Tirole, 2002; Weber, 2004). These include curiosity, altruism, free expression, needfor belonging, desire for status and recognition, and the hope for future financial rewards for privateconsultancy after being publicly recognized for one’s expertise. More interesting for our purposethan these individual motivations, though, are the structures and processes that encourageindividuals to take part in such a collective enterprise, i.e. the underlying mobilization system.A first analysis (Heylighen, 2007) points at two fundamental mechanisms: feedback andstigmergy. By contributing a question, comment, answer, program, photo or any other input,participants hope to get a reaction from the other community members, because that would givethem an indication of whether they are on the right path, or need to make some correction. Suchfeedback provides valuable information that allows participants to get better in whatever they areinterested in. For example, a programmer who contributed a piece of code will benefit if a userpoints out a bug in that code, suggests a way to extend it, or simply confirms that the job was welldone.Stigmergy is a mechanism of spontaneous coordination between actions, where the result ofan individual’s work stimulates a next individual to continue that work (Parunak, 2006; Bolici,Howison, & Crowston, 2009; Heylighen, 2011a). For example, a paragraph contributed to aWikipedia article may incite a later reader of that paragraph to add a reference or further detail,which in turn may elicit further contributions from others.

      Feedback and stigmergy are two key motivations for contributing to online communities.

    1. Some researchers have found that these discrepancies create enough "haptic dissonance" to dissuade some people from using e-readers. People expect books to look, feel and even smell a certain way; when they do not, reading sometimes becomes less enjoyable or even unpleasant. For others, the convenience of a slim portable e-reader outweighs any attachment they might have to the feel of paper books.
    1. send off your draft or beta orproposal for feedback. Share this Intermediate Packet with a friend,family member, colleague, or collaborator; tell them that it’s still awork-in-process and ask them to send you their thoughts on it. Thenext time you sit down to work on it again, you’ll have their input andsuggestions to add to the mix of material you’re working with.

      A major benefit of working in public is that it invites immediate feedback (hopefully positive, constructive criticism) from anyone who might be reading it including pre-built audiences, whether this is through social media or in a classroom setting utilizing discussion or social annotation methods.

      This feedback along the way may help to further find flaws in arguments, additional examples of patterns, or links to ideas one may not have considered by themselves.

      Sadly, depending on your reader's context and understanding of your work, there are the attendant dangers of context collapse which may provide or elicit the wrong sorts of feedback, not to mention general abuse.

    1. Learning targets describe the knowledge and skills students should be able to demonstrate by the end of the lesson. Learning targets are broken down into success criteria so students can self-assess and track their learning progress.

      I think one of the things I fail to understand is that learning targets (or objectives at any level) are for measuring progress by the student as well as the instructor. I can be part of the feedback loop with relatively low effort on my part once the initial investment is made.

    1. He notes that authors of such projects should consider the return on investment. It take time to go through community feedback, so one needs to determine whether the pay off will be worthwhile. Nevertheless, if his next work is suitable for community review, he’d like to do it again.

      This is an apropos question. It is also somewhat contingent on what sort of platform the author "owns" to be able to do outreach and drive readers and participation.

    1. Participants expected the instructors to be actively engaged with learners, providing them with clear guidance, expectations, and requirements. This finding confirms that students expected consistent and timely feedback from the instructor (Vonderwell, 2003)

    1. Even without any feedback, we will be better off ifwe try to remember something ourselves (Jang et al. 2012).
    2. Dweck shows convincingly thatthe most reliable predictor for long-term success is having a “growthmindset.” To actively seek and welcome feedback, be it positive ornegative, is one of the most important factors for success (andhappiness) in the long run. Conversely, nothing is a bigger hindranceto personal growth than having a “fixed mindset.” Those who fearand avoid feedback because it might damage their cherishedpositive self-image might feel better in the short term, but will quicklyfall behind in actual performance (Dweck 2006; 2013).

      Carol Dweck shows that the most reliable predictor for long-term success is what she calls having a "growth mindset" or the ability to take feedback and change.

      This seems related to the idea of endergonic reactions and the growth of complexity as well as the idea of the meaning of life.

      What do these systems all have in common? What are their differences? What abstractions can we make from them?

    1. Once we introduce evaluation into our learning spaces, we change the way we interact with student work.

      Evaluation is not the same as feedback. Evaluation is almost always directed at unsolicited advice. Feedback may praise or criticize, but usually seeks value in something.

      Hello. I am a paying subscriber, now, after all these years… I may or may not have become a paying subscriber just to justify this particular feedback after all this time.

      Ultimately, though, I’m giving you a real substantial bullet point to put on that very wispy-looking full features list of Twitter Blue!

    1. Twitter Blue Publisher network

      Hey Twitter,

      I love that you chose to show support for Lists by sharing the list of Blue publishers, this way. This is a decision I want to celebrate!

      However, this hyperlink isn’t particularly useful in that the user has no ability to actually follow the list. Aside from manually bookmarking it on a browser (since you can’t if you let the deeplink open the native app,) there is no way to save it!

    1. This is actively being worked on - for those interested you can follow the progress in https://github.com/snapcore/snapd/pull/10836
    2. After 5 years there's still no fix. This is so annoying. I'm now getting rid of all snap packages and installing deb variants instead. Finally I'll purge snap and if these weird decisions keep on going I'll also move to another distro. Common Canonical. Seriously?
    1. During the time between becoming a DisCONaut and full (legal) membership, it's assumed that the DisCONaut is there for the long run. The new DisCOnaut has become part of an established collective with its unique group culture and, while new members will change that culture, all changes have to fit in well with what has already been built. If no major or unsolved issues arise, the nine-month mark means that the new DisCONaut becomes a full member and the appropriate legal and/or contractual procedures are undertaken.

      I feel like this paragraph addresses my earlier concern about not being able to be paid during that period! Maybe surface this way earlier. I'd say, always lead with the care! It's what brought me in at least :)

    2. marriage

      I do wince a bit at this "marriage" metaphor, I guess also because it immediately brings monogamy to top of mind for me, but I do like the idea of positioning this (this love and commitment to the other people in the coop) in opposition to the super icky "baby" startup metaphor.

    3. In DisCO.coop we recommend that full membership is only awarded after nine continued months of working and being in the collective. This means nine months from the moment the new DisCONaut started dating, independent of their timeline options.

      I understand and agree with the sentiment of putting in the time to grow relationships to the point where everyone feels comfortable. I also think that it is important when we talk about growing communities to move "at the speed of trust."

      But at the same time, I do worry about the feasibility of a 9 month mostly unpaid work period for much of the world's work force. Being able to work for 9 months without getting compensated isn't a luxury most can take (and thats in addition to having likely been a contributor for an amount of time), and will require many to either work a second job while doing this or come from a background that gives them enough of a financial cushion to ride on during this period.

      I guess my suggestion would be that we should think about how this dating process can happen simultaneously to the earlier contributor stages so that certain lessons or learnings can be gleaned without extending the process out too long.

    4. Into the Dating Phase! click to enlarge and animate

      Formatting is kind of weird here and some text appears next to the image.

    5. The Commitment Statement

      Vibe with this idea, but wondering if it could be taken a step further to make it like a recommitment process. Like, resigning the document comes after some calls with other members where we talk through things and adjust the document to fit how needs/commitment has changed, rather than default to renewing the already established statement. Just a thought.

    6. It is also important to have a second, more thorough interview prior to signing the Commitment Statement.

      There are a few places in this document where I can't quite tell if the text is bolded or if I'm just seeing things. Something to keep in mind! We should probably test if DisCO sites in general meet web accessibility standards.

    7. need

      feels a little harsh, not particularly consent drive, maybe "are asked"

    8. Clarity that vibe trumps all other considerations, meaning, if there's a bad fit evident from things like poor or indirect communication, or evident discomfort with the style and rhythms of the existing group, that usually signals a weird vibe. Weird vibe = no DisCO Dating [39].

      I don't think this needs to be elucidated in this doc, but I think it might be a good idea to create a "dating pool" where folks that are interested in working with a DisCO are added and shared (as they're comfortable) with the DisCO community at large. One person may not vibe with a specific DisCO or meet the conditions needed at that time, but may be a great fit for another DisCO.

    9. co-dependent

      I feel like codependency has a bad rap and may raise some eyebrows. Interdependent?

    10. A DisCO Ley Line is, basically, an agreed-on transfer of invested credits between one DisCO and another.

      This concept is brought up many times before here, but this is the first time we have it explained direct and succinctly. I would move this up higher in the doc.

      Also important to note here, if this is a wiki that is hosted on multiple pages, you're probably going to want to repeat certain phrases/sentences so that people reading individual pages can get the gist without having to hunt through.

      Finally, the "basically" here feels a little casual in a way that I think makes the tone inconsistent.

    11. unlike value tracking for contributors, it's not expected to be either latent or unfulfilled.

      I think this sentence helps convince people that are interested in DisCOlarships, but may disuade people interested in contributing. the "expectation" for the credits to be unfulfilled. Question that pops to mind, why track my hours if there is an expectation that nothing will ever come of it?

    12. Similarly, this work is initially considered to be Invested Lovework. You can read more about those terms in this section. For now "invested" means "unpaid" and "Lovework" means "voluntary work".

      This particular phrasing makes this paragraph sound like doublespeak.

    13. Whether it's a DisCO worker-coop, DisCO.NP or any other type of DisCO application, DisCOlarships are announced by the hosting DisCO through its social media channels, newsletters or community calls. Before entering into DisCOlarship, the hosting DisCO needs to ensure it has the human and conceptual capacity.

      One of the places where it feels like we need to explicitly address audience: is this a tool for other DisCOs to learn how to define their relationships, or for people interested in working within the existing DisCO ecosystem. If the former, this feels too prescriptive.

    14. DisCOlarships are one way to advanced from a Casual to Committed DisCO relation. As such, they are considered a Casual Relationship leaning towards committed relationships with DisCOs in general (if not to the particular DisCO hosting the DisCOlarship).

      Idk what it is, but I get a weird feeling about how explicit the lines are being drawn around casual and committed relationships. I think it's related to the earlier comment about feeling like the text is overemphasizing the DisCOs agency in defining the relationship.

      I think part of it is also the fact that the casualization of labor is a really sore point for a lot of workers right now, as we emerge as a new "precariat" class. While its understandable that a lot of this work may be considered volunteer work and thus unpaid, continually noting that this is a casual relationship with no obligation for pay definitely makes me recall toxic work relationships in my past and I imagine will do the same for other workers.

    15. A DisCOlarship involves regular "visits" to a DisCO to learn its practices and get to know DisCONauts in the real world.

      How necessary is this "in the real world" part of the training? If it feels like an absolute must, it could be helpful to elucidate why.

    16. In other DisCOs, contributors can help with whatever productive work is taken by the particular DisCO. So, for example, in a worker-owned DisCO community garden, contributors could drop in to help with the gardening when convenient and that value will be tracked for future inclusion, should they want to become dating members and, eventually, committed. In a DisCO.NP dedicated to creating mesh networks for community WiFi, the contributors can help set up the infrastructure for their own Internet connections and, having learned in the process, can apply that knowledge (and attendant credits) toward future work in that particular DisCO.NP.

      In this section, we have three examples of potential "contributor relationships." While I think exploring different possibilities is important, this is quite a lengthy document and I think we need prioritize word efficiency.

      This isn't to say "don't include these examples," it's to say: if we're including all these examples, we should make it immediately clear to the reader why that example is being given and why that use case is so different from the others provided that it deserves to be included

    17. Why do we track the value of casual contributions?

      I definitely agree in the reasoning behind tracking casual contributions, but when you get to the part about DisCO Ley Lines, I think and underlying problem becomes way more salient:

      value tracking, especially in the case of tracking for the purposes of some sort of recognition by a large third party is a sure fire way of "abstracting" an individuals labor. How do we address this feeling of "heaven is high, emperor is far away" when talking about value tracking, especially in relation to DisCOs unrelated to the DisCO Mothership? That line in particular makes this document less transferrable as a tool for teaching people interested in starting their own DisCOs because it is specifically addressing people's labor in relation to the Mothership.

      TL;DR maybe remove the Ley Lines bullet

    18. (these terms are further explained in this section: Ways to Account for Work).

      I think it's important to provide at least a quick summation of what people will find in that section here so that people don't feel obligated to hunt and peck at sections to understand what you mean.

    19. it is much easier to record contributions according to grade and measure. If you're not familiar with those terms, it basically means "quantity and quality".

      why not just say "quantity and quality" here?

    20. The DisCO.NP may contract services when lacking the capacity - See Undercapacity and contracting outside the DisCO.NP. The DisCO.NP may also choose to engange with other DisCOs in work relationships and value transactions - see DisCOverses and Intra-DisCO Value Flows.

      On this read, I'm putting myself in the shoes of someone that is interested in working as a contributor. These sentences feel way more relevant to the DisCO itself. Not to say this doesn't belong in this page, but I think we may need to work on shaping the tone of this document to more clearly delineate who. the audience is at each point of the text.

    21. Contributors must know that they don't have priority over Committed or Dating members of the DisCO.NP, and that they won't be compensated (whether immediately or ever) for any of their contributions.

      This paragraph paired with the above paragraphs about DisCO.NPs not having any obligation to use the contributions of the contributors feels like we may be going a little too hard in emphasizing the casualness of the relationship, and the current framing makes it feel like the DisCO has way more say in the relationship than the contributor. Frankly, these paragraphs read a little bit like a contract saying "the DisCO is under no obligation to x, y, or z" which I don't think is the tone that you want to strike. Obviously, we don't want to mislead people into thinking "ah, I'm interested in working with this org, so I'm entitled to x, y, and z" but I think a balance can be struck that shows people that they indeed have agency within this relationship, but that the DisCO also reserves the same amount of agency. I think the "Applying the dating metaphor..." paragraph does this really well, so maybe it's about taking these "precautionary" sections and bundling them down lower in the page and working hard to strike a caring town within that section.

    22. they are value tracked.

      I think this needs more elaboration.

    23. The DisCO.NP, however, is not in any way obliged to accept the contribution. Using two of the examples above, if the contributed artwork or code isn't up to standard, the DisCO.NP will not use it. Quality Control and Post-Hoc evaluation is very important in DisCO — if we are to provide viable alternatives to the mainstream economy, we need to ensure we do stuff right, according to the individual criteria of each DisCO LAB.[24] Applying the dating metaphor, if "we’re really not made for each other", we'll move on with no hard feelings. Casual relationships are consent-based and depend on clear communication. A casual contributor doesn't really have to do anything for the DisCO.NP, in terms of building our support structure and using the DisCO's workflow tools, for instance. Contributors can get in touch whenever they feel like it and vice versa. The bulk of the care work for the collective, including all admin and project management tasks, is undertaken by the DisCONauts.

      I would move this final paragraph to be the second paragraph as it feels more directly related to the first, where as the other two feel like they touch on a very specific facet of the contributor-NP relationship.

    24. This one possible DisCO Journey. In others people may remain in one circle, or go through a DisCOlarship and start their own separate DisCO, etc.

      I think that the fact that there is no "one true way" for this process to go makes it hard to visualize this with a single graphic and including this, may give people the wrong impression if they're just scrolling through. At the same time, visualizing infinite paths will definitely confuse people.

      Maybe something less representational/more abstract rather than "informative."

    25. To recap: We have distinguished two main states: Casual and Committed. "Casual" means little responsibility. These are no-strings-attached relationships for mutual benefit. There are two types of Casual Relationship: Supporters (Very casual interactions) and Contributors (More active interactions and actual contributions to the DisCO.NP and its mission). "Committed" signifies a stated commitment of responsibility to the DisCO.NP and its members. Those wanting to progress from Casual to Committed have two options: DisCOLarships (practical DisCO training with no firm expectation of joining the DisCO). DisCO Dating: Intense mentoring program for applicants to join the DisCO in which they are being mentored.

      High level, I think it may make more sense to lead with "TL;DR"s rather then ending with them so that as people are browsing through the wiki, they can quickly decide if they're on the right page or not.

    26. 1 DisCOLarships: Where individuals regularly "visit" the DisCO.NP to learn about DisCO culture and structure in the real world, get to know the people, etc. There are minimal responsibilities and the DisCOLar is free to start their own DisCO afterward or join the same DisCO they have trained in. 2 The DisCO Dating Phase: Where potential members make a firm commitment to go through the DisCO.NP's mentoring and training program in order to become committed members or DisCONauts. There are considerable, consented-upon responsibilities on the part of the DisCO Dating Member and the DisCO-NP itself during this process.

      The difference between these two options is not immediately clear.

      Is it that the DisCOLar path is oriented towards creating new DisCOs and the dating is oriented towards joining the mothership?

    27. Beyond Contributors, there is another type of casual relationship with a lesser level of responsibility: Supporters.

      This sentence feels too specific in a section that is talking about "casual relationships" in a more general sense.

    28. There are two additional "bridging states" between the Casual/Committed poles, which we will also discuss.

      I don't know that this sentence is necessary, as all of the types of relationships will fall on this spectrum.

    29. within a DisCO Non-Profit

      I feel like this may be too prescriptive. IMO, these roles and responsibilities feel like they'd apply to basically any DisCO.

    30. On the downside, DisCOs are also more complex in the initial stages, although once their learning curve has been overcome, we'd argue that they function more smoothly and are more resilient organizations.

      I don't know that this is inherent to DisCOs as individual organizations! I think that this might appear to be the case given that we're still building out the core of the philosophy while also trying to create organizations that work by these ideals while existing as an explicitly counter-hegemonic endeavor. All that to say, I think you may be selling DisCOs short by including this in there, but understand why it's included right now. My main reason for bringing it up is, we don't want to give people the impression that this is the hardest path possible because it will likely result in slower adoption of these principles.

    31. first, as a description of a legal entity that holds the ability to maintain tangible functions like contracts and agreements, and more intangible ones like commonly held values. Secondly, “trust” is used in the sense of the ability for team members to operate with a specific relationship to one another, according to defined principles and common goals.

      Personally, given your mission, I think it would make more sense to flip these two. You all are human/community first, tech+contractual obligation second and I think this sentence could better reflect that.

    1. Ruthlessly seek negative feedback. When getting feedback, @tferriss requests the reader highlight: • Anywhere boring • Anything confusing • Anywhere your mind starts to wander Then he asks two questions - what is the: • 10% I must keep • 20% I should cut immediately

    1. Recent studies found when teachers gave trainee pharmacists frequent low-stakes questions with feedback, students performed better on tests and were more satisfied with the course.  

      references for this?

    1. There are two ways for someone to be in this quadrant. The unhealthy way, as a people pleaser, with associated resentment and chaos. In a healthy way, everything feels very clear. It’s easy to fit feedback into their mental model, and adjustments feel natural and build on what they are currently working on. This comes from having a good idea themselves about what is happening and how they think they can improve.

      good point on the people-pleaser mindset, also worth considering with ADHD/ASD employees - try and foster more curiosity than chaos

    2. Coachability is made up of two factors: someone’s receptiveness to feedback, and how highly actionable they are (what they do with it).
    3. How do your reports respond to feedback? As managers, it’s our job to grow the people we work with. This is how we build a bench, and scale ourselves and the organization. Of course, this is easy to say and hard to do, and we’ve all encountered a spectrum of people: those with whom it’s easy to accelerate and have a real and lasting impact on, and those where the lasting impact is the relief we feel once we no longer work with them.

      this is also why it is important to have a good culture of frequent feedback. Since it is key to growing the organization, feedback can't be saved for quarterly reviews only.

    1. We just cannot know all that life will throw at us, and if we want our grading contract to be fair and equitable for everyone, we need to reexamine it, reflect on how it has been working for each of us, and perhaps adjust it. 

      This idea of re-evaluating at regular time points can be a very useful and powerful tool in more areas than just writing.

      Society as a whole needs to look carefully at where it is do do this same sort of readjustment as well.

      It's the same sort of negative feedback mechanism which is at work in the scientific method and constantly improving the state-of-the art.

    2. your goal cannot be to follow orders in order to get a higher grade, instead you are free to listen, consider things, ignore ideas, or ask more honest questions of your readers. You are now free to make your own decisions on your writing. 

      Labor-based grading in writing allows students to listen and adjust to comments which gives them greater freedom and autonomy in both their learning process as well as their writing.

      Ideally, in a system like this, a shorter feedback loop of commentary and readjustment may also help to more carefully hone their skills versus potentially hitting a plateau after which it's more difficult to improve.

    1. This idea that plants become desirable or aversive depending on their digestive consequences is simple. But, how do grazing animals figure out exactly which plants made them fee l good or ill? One way herbivores apparently accomplish this task is by regarding unfamiliar plants with caution. Animals associate positive or negative effects of nutrients or toxins with novel foods when offered meals that contain novel and familiar foods. When foraging bouts include several novel plants, plants that dominate the diet are probably 'weighted' more than less-consumed plants, even if the minor foods were primarily responsible for the positive or negative feedback. Furthermore, digestive feedback begins within 10 to 15 minutes of consumption which could help animals attribute digestive benefits or liabilities to specific plants. Finally, livestock grazing on rangelands usually become familiar with the forage resource and may seldom encounter truly novel plants. This allows greater opportunity to 'sort out' feedback from individual or similar groups of plants
    2. When a grazing animal smells and tastes a plant, the flavor is either pleasing or distasteful depending on the animal's previous grazing experiences. When a plant is eaten, it provides feedback during digestion. If consumption of a plant improves the nutrient or energy status of the animal, the plant flavor becomes more desirable or pleasing. If eating of the plant yields illness, the flavor becomes aversive and distasteful (Fig. 2). These flavor-consequence relationships form the basis for dietary likes and dislikes, and the animal then seeks highly palatable foods and avoids aversive foods. The resulting behavior patterns generally lead to increased consump- tion of nutritious foods and limited consumption of toxic or low quality plants.
    3. The digestive consequences of forage consumption are determined by plant forage quality and animal digestive and detoxification abilities. This interaction, in turn, affects the nutrients and energy available for animal growth and maintenance.
    1. When an animal eats a plant, it receives digestive feedback in the form of energy, nutrients, illness, or toxicosis. If the feedback is positive, preferences are formed to the plant and if the feedback is negative, aversions are formed. The strength of the preference or aversion is determined by the magnitude, nature, and timing of digestive feedback
    1. Ich finde die Absicht des Autors für Chronik hier etwas unvollständig. Die beschriebene Absichts ist mE die Absicht Gottes. Für die Absicht des menschlichen Autors dieses Buches müsste man noch etwas mehr Hintergrundinformationen sammeln: Wann und Wer verfasst die Chroniken? An welche Zuhörerschaft? Ich weiß nicht, ob das das Potential hat, in die (zu) textkritische Betrachtung einzusteigen oder ob es für den Einstieg zu viel wird, aber sind meine spontanten Gedanken dazu. Bei einem Brief im NT ist es oft klarer bzgl. Autor und Absicht.

    1. Use the button to get a sharable link to the page with annotations.

      so super dope that you can toggle highlights & annotations to be private or public, and then can share a hypothesis link for a page, and then people can see your highlights on the page that are public, and dont see the ones you set as private, oh wow!!!

    1. See this post's corresponding GitHub Issue for related media, aggregated links, and other minutia.

      It didn't occur to me until just this moment that GitHub might also make for the ideal commenting integration. And the... second-most ideal annotation integration, naturally.

      Basically, leave comments there!

    1. It is important to acknowledge that education is essentially a political activity.

      Re-reading this week's chapter, I keep getting hung-up on this line. While I agree that education is affected by political views, I don't know that it is necessarily appropriate to state that education is a political activity. By design (or perhaps, by hope), education should be decidedly non-political. The reality of education, perhaps, is very politically driven, but something about the wording of calling education itself a political activity doesn't feel truly accurate.
