    1. I said I was going to give the students a quiz, during the third week of class, on “everything we had learned so far.” They should use the taxonomy of cheating and the university’s own policy to cheat on this quiz. Nothing was off-limits unless it was dangerous or illegal. Other than that, have at it, I told them. All the students had to do was complete the quiz and then write a one-page reflection that explained: 1) the ways in which they cheated, 2) what, if anything, they learned from it and 3) how they felt about the experience

      From the article: What Happened When I Made My Students Cheat

      Yes, ours will test this too. Credit-recovery, etc.

      This focus on videos as a learning device is interesting to me. Ours are very text heavy at this point.

      All making oriented.

      We saw this in Lucas Blair's writing too.

    7. Another large theme that surfaced was the need for social interaction

    1. he greatest thing a human soul ever does in this world is to see something and tell what it saw in a plain way.

      Annotation would seem to have a role to play here.

    1. as researchers and policy makers look to build more sustainable futures, they would be wise to design creative ways to support parents even as they pour more resources into supporting students. We instinctively understand that our public institutions (i.e., schools), policy initiatives, and the spread of media technologies must be a valuable resource for students. But, how can these institutions, policies and technologies become an asset for parents?
