    1. The appeal of social networks is partly because they let us create documents without thinking about web technology,

      mirrors strongly another comment i made, that our appetites & expectations for computing has outstripped the personal, that we now expect computing to be connective. we want the digital matter we create to exist not just locally, but widely. https://hypothes.is/a/11-k1v7pEeqJ1qdf5kJahQ

    2. There was a time when we could install applications, give some sort of explicit agreement that something would run on our computers and use our hardware. That time is ending,

      The end seems perilously close at hand for personal computing, but, imo, as much as anything that is because users now expect to compute to have impact & effect far beyond the beige box.

      Open source has many amazing things, but in terms of ways to get user's digital stuff online & available & circulating, there have been precious few compelling attempts. I'd call out in particular RemoteStorage spec, & the newer SOLID specs from MIT & TBL.

    1. Conversations about feelings are usually expressed with gestures and proximity, which is difficult while accessing a computer.

      I think that a major part of conversation is those gestures and proximity. With or without a disability this is difficult to express when online.

    1. Second, an activity may threaten a student who has not disclosed something relevant to you. Before you ask students to share a story of their name, for example, remember that some students will have changed their name for reasons of personal safety, family breakdown, or gender identity. 

      It's important to recognize that not everyone has come from the same backgrounds or situations. Whether it's a name or sharing a personal story, or even turning on the camera, some students use school as an escape from their home lives, and I think it's important not to pressure students into feeling like their grade is at risk because of their home situations.

    1. the prevalence of dark patterns online is harmful to people—and has the potential to impact more than just their wallets.

      shopping addiction

    2. “Dark patterns are being used to undermine privacy, and to rob users of their ability to critically reflect on their actions,” he says. “Design and behavioral science have become weaponized to solely benefit online retailers and to exploit users.”

      Technology which is not designed for the user, but to maximize profits: the opposite of what Humane Technology states

    3. It can be hard to determine the line between clever marketing and outright deception.

      the whole point of life

    4. Most dark patterns are design choices, but others are arguably just fraud.

    1. Online Reading Comprehension

      Sharing what they've found with one another Students getting really excited when they've found something, want to show teacher Once students get one part, challenge them to find something new Evaluate the information; what features make it good? What is definition of best? Synthesize what you are finding; bring in all the information from different sources Multimodal ways of reading

    2. Online Reading Comprehension

      Put focus on learning coming from partners

    1. At least five processing practices occur during online research and comprehension, each requiring additional new skills and strategies when they take place online:

      5 Practices are:

      1. Identify important questions
      2. Locating information
      3. Evaluating information critically
      4. Synthesizing information
      5. Reading and writing to communicate
    1. Engaging students in a three-month long project where they create their own short plays with the guidance of a workingplaywright, this festival not only allows students from St. Sylvester to explore playwriting, but to do so in collaboration with another class at a nearby Member School, St. Henry.

      Way to collaborate with places outside of the school

    1. There was also opportunity to connect with other students.

      I'm glad you had at least a little bit of this. The system I saw used for third graders left almost zero space for inter-student interaction or socialization which was a miserable experience.

    2. I felt more akin to being a relief teacher with little agency.

      I felt like exactly this myself!

    1. Overall, the process of moderating individual comments is really really really fucking hard.

      dire need for some IBIS or other, where people can make structured arguments & thread out, rather than this endless growing log of comments that pick up wherever they feel like & push whichever-which-way.

      we need higher fidelity information to begin to moderate effectively.

      this is a really nicely written thread from one of the most ultra-productive extremely-high-quality coders on the planet, detailing what challenges moderators face. and how they are equipped with only: a) moderation of individual comments b) locking threads c) bannings, all fiat acts.

    1. Understanding and respecting community behaviors when expressing opinions in online discussions.

      Yes this is an important consideration in learning to become a "good citizen of the web." How do you define an online community, though? Is the whole internet an online community? Are their sub-communities? Are communities just groups of people who gather together (i.e. a Facebook group or page)?

    1. The prevalence of child sexual exploitation and abuse is also a major concern.

      The SG has brought child online protection to the forefront by highlighting it in the introduction. To be applauded.
