    1. Instructional designers exist to bridge the gap between faculty instruction and student online learning.

      I'm really feeling connected to this statement and consider an important part of my role as an [instructional designer] is to empower student voice and involvement in the decisions being made, while also balancing instructor support.

    2. Adobe products

      I'm a bit surprised by this. Adobe's programs are really complex and maybe too finicky for most graphic needs?

    3. “Coding could be very useful, but it is not a skill I have!”

      I've been doing a bit of coding here and there, and I'd like to learn more for sure!

    4. Learning new technologies

      why we need to be curious, life-long learners!

    1. Strategies:

      • Outline communication etiquette and expectations from the start
      • Show your workspace
      • Strong Introductions:
      • Try Avatar Introductions, sharing connections with community
      • Recognize contributions of others; feature learner’s contributions and ideas in weekly recaps and summaries
      • Storytelling: reserve time specifically for sharing personal stories and experiences
      • Don’t over edit your communications, better yet try live video hangouts and share the recordings!
      • Admit when you don’t know something, and encourage exploration of the idea (either in class or later)
      • supportive actions are taken quickly
    2. Be authentic and share your own stories and experiences. Don’t hide your own challenges. Don’t be afraid to say you don’t know, rather act as the lead-learner. Demonstrate your own passion for learning and show an authentic interest in helping others succeed.

    1. what motivates their engagement and participation

      let's start here

    2. help them articulate what a better future might look like

      How do we let them know that their voices are needed and valued?

    3. adult leaders are looking in the wrong places,

      For me this speaks to the importance of meeting youth where they are (in digital spaces as well as emotionally/intellectually) and having a good sense of youth culture. Staying current and connected is a big challenge for educators, and by incorporating spaces that are currently being used by youth into our curriculum we can meet younger generations where they are and "speak their language".

    1. We must make intellectual work accessible, and accessible work intellectual

    1. Dedoose

      Need to look in to this program-anyone else used it before?

    2. STs were undergraduates in their early 20s who were mostly female (61 of 73, 84%) and largely self-identified as White/European-American (68 of 73, 93%).

      Were these PSTs multi-subject credential students, single subject mathematics credential students, or a combination? I am also wondering how these stats measure up to PSTs as a whole...not sure if that data is available though.

    3. quotidian

      I need to save this word for words with friends haha! Q words are so valuable. also, need to look up this word xD

    4. middle school students’ photography of everyday mathematics

      love this idea; I need to look into this study

    5. calculator use

      this is so troubling and problematic...show me a profession that uses high level math where a calculator or computer isn't involved!

    6. presen

      For me, the most important part of this quote is the word "present". This emphasizes how critical it is for educators and learning designers to be life-long learners and stay up to date on current behavioral trends for youth.

    1. collaborative reading practice

      loving the term "collaborative reading practice" as a celebration of the social aspects of the web annotation process. for me, reading is more often a solitary process; however I think of myself as a collaborative learner. what am I missing by not reading collaboratively?

    1. instigated online

      hmm I wonder about the use of instigated here. Isn't it possible that some of this "drama" has moved from in person to online? the heading feels a bit misleading, as though the conflict was a result of being online

    2. 62% of teens share their social media username as one of the first pieces of information they share as a way to stay in touch when they meet a brand new friend.

      This is really fascinating. Social media is preferable over email, phone, etc.

    3. playing networked video games

      Are affinity spaces for games included as social media or as video games? Affinity spaces are a huge source of socialization for many games.

    4. With so much game-playing with other people, video gameplay, particularly over online networks, is an important activity through which boys form and maintain friendships with others:

      What implications does this have for parents, educators, game devs etc?
