    1. Lowenthal and Wilson

      Patrick Lowenthal and Brent Wilson, both instructional designers.

    2. All seemed to agree that the terms educational technology and instructional technology are often used interchangeably

      Yes, that's my experience as well.

    3. elearning

      Now define this? Does elearning mean strictly online? Does it mean with technology (like apps)?

    4. Kineo
    5. it is hard to tell “civilians” what it is that we actually do for a living

      This has always been easy for me! I tell them that I teach teachers how to teach.

    1. that they would do well to also embrace a principled commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion

      I think this is important to internalize, otherwise it can be artificial and disingenuous.

    1. Therefore, it is important that HSIs identify those areas in which they may be falling short of facilitating Latino student success and develop plans of action to improve Latino student outcome

      This dialectical process is important

    2. Nor does Title V request that HSIs establish success goals and benchmarks to close equity gaps between Latinos and students from other racial/ethnic groups.

      Shouldn't it..?

    3. These newer HSIs are reflective of rising Latino college enrollment and a growing, more geographically dispersed U.S. Latino population

      UCSC reached 27% enrollment of Latino-identified undergraduate students in Fall 2012, and became a Hispanic-Serving Institution in 2015.

    1. Attendance policies that are, frankly, bizarre considering that every classroom is now also a home.


    2. Right now, there’s a burgeoning conversation in education right now around the idea of ungrading, or changing the way we grade and do assessment.

      I want to learn more about this

    3. learning happens when we’re not looking

      I like this!

    1. social annotation tool Hypothesis


    2. even in the lack of diversity among authors of the readings we assign

      good example!

    3. "hidden curriculum"


    4. participatory practices

      Giving students surveys! Mid-term or weekly.

    5. "fit" issues.


    6. Working toward inclusive design

      This phrasing is great - it's an achievable but multifaceted goal that can move. Small changes will proliferate

    7. An inclusive design orientation pushes back on "best practices" in education and instead asks, "For whom are those best practices good, and for whom are they not?"

      This is excellent

    8. This refers not just to the privileged students, or the ones we understand,5 or those studied by researchers

      We have to move away from a stereotype of 'student'

    9. There are few processes that encourage us to look critically at our designs and design processes

      Or to evaluate whether they were effective or not. It's a dialectical process.

    1. Hypothesis syncs annotations across copies of the same PDF based on a“fingerprint” or unique ID. That means you can share a PDF via email (or othermeans) and anyone can download and annotate that PDF with you.

      this is what we're testing :) !!!

    2. Firefox


    3. Make sure the PDFhas selectable text

      yes, done


    1. make space for distractio

      how do we do this in classes?

    2. maths problems and classes cannot more commonly be made just as engaging as the games

      gamification can be successful but tricky or otherwise difficult to design

    1. join the Republican Party,

      what the fuck my dude

    2. The COINTELPRO eventually intimidated and corrupted all three of the Black Pan-ther Party's top leaders, Newton, Seale, and Cleaver. Each in their own way caved in to the pressures put forth by the FBI and began acting in a manner that was deliber-ately designed to destroy the Black Panther Party, and to disillusion not only Party members but African-American people in general.

      folly of man

    3. self-defens

      not just ARMed defense, but legal defense

    4. The internal strife, division, intrigue, and paranoia had become so ingrained that eventually most members drifted or were driven away

      that's one way

    5. This letter prompted Newton to respond violently to any questioning of his actions or policies

      not a good look. remember when they started off with a survey of needs?

    6. created artwork and literature that showed the Panthers defaming members of US.

      another word would be fabricated

    7. Hoo-ver's FBI agents devoted themselves to ensuring that the gunplay would continue.


    8. considerable internal dissension,


    9. Counterintelligence

      are you kidding me with this name though

    10. power to morality

      power? what? the ability to enforce? rather than the simple knowing of right and wrong/morality?

    11. who relied on the rhetoric of revolutionary prophets

      interesting word choice of relied here

    12. Minister of Information

      this seems weirdly 1984

    13. The patrol squads had the effect of reducing the incidence of police brutality against black people, but at the same time, the incidence of harassment of Panthers in-tensified, ultimately leading to a nationwide campaign of repression against them.

      the lawbooks were not sufficient and the guns were too terrifying for the police. perhaps there could be no compromise

    14. e and others carried law books along with weapons in the pa-trol cars


    15. Before receiving the weapons, however, all new members had to go through a period of indoctrination and training

      makes sense

    16. who per-mitted and used violence against black people with the "establishment's" endorsement.


    17. The Black Panther Party chose the name because the panther is known to be an animal that never makes an unprovoked attack, but will defend itself vehemently when attacked, and this was symbolic of what the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense stood for
    18. To make sure that this new organization met the needs of the community, they surveyed its residents.

      This seems so elementary but fundamental

    19. militants


    20. black unity and black autonomy were at the core of its platform and program
    21. failed to meet the needs of the people

      underlined. Why did it fail? Racist policies that promoted inequities.

    22. 1966 through the mid-1970s

      So brief! Wow

    23. Afrocentric in its promotion of black Americans as the liberating vanguard

      there's something so poetic and zealous and passionate about this - I've felt it from some people, as if it is inside their soul

    24. Revolutionary na-tionalists believe that there can be no separate racial peace with the oppressor

      and that's why white people were/are scared

    25. Revolutionary nationalists maintain that African-Americans cannot achieve liberation in the United States within the existing political and economic system

      Cannot exist with racist policies.

    26. American education as de-structive to African-Americans in that the schools rniseducate the youth and thereby do not prepare them for liberation

      Harris is probably writing this in context of the BPP, so given this, yes. The school system in the US is plagued with revisionist history, especially when it comes to people of color in general and slavery. Bluntly, if you keep them ignorant, you keep them obedient. Compliant? (Works for Republicans)

    27. political objective of black nationalism

      did it need one?

    28. must first cherish a friendly union with themselves

      This makes me think of the Tom Segura bit, but also makes me think of Janice saying she always would identify another Asian nearby her. There is something about racial camaraderie that I've never felt as a white person.

      On another note, I can see how a friendly union might be a difficult position to strive for. Uncle Rukus(sp?)

    29. black nationalism is the recognition of cultural and racial common-ality and a call to racial solidarity

      identifying your kin - those who look like you, live like you, have lived like you and at some level, understand you
