    1. This is the Tragedy of Symbols

      Speaking of tragedy...the tragedy of symbols is embedded within the tragedy of the commons. We individually take for granted the symbolification of our reality, therefor robbing society of its collective potential. Tragedy on tragedy crime!

    2. Will the current logic of voting withstand this tidal wave of change?

      Current? Unlikely...it's just a matter of what changes first.

      CO Quadratic Experiment

    3. self-sovereignty marked by autonomy, equality, and reciprocity
      • [ ] Check links
      • [ ] Eat lunch
      • [ ] Escape time
    4. workers would push it forward

      Guilty :)

    5. against the background of our universe

      +1

    6. none of these symbols are static. The symbols themselves, like institutions, evolve and adapt to society, not the other way around.

      Seconds adapt to society? This may require an LSD micro-dose...or at minimum, a long hike :)

    7. This changes everything

      Hyperbole-free!

    8. From the dollar, we get markets and capitalism; from the vote, we get societies and democracies; from time, we get machines and the industrial revolution.

      Crazy when you realize that all of the material, atom-based stuff around us came to be from a foundation of the ethereal and intangible. Therein lies the deep dichotomy of the Coyote.

    9. this embedded logic gives meaning to and maps the symbol of a vote to the inherent value of political voice.

      Meaning, correlational logic, and value all created from nothing more than a shared consciousness...that's how/why this whole thing goes exponential.

    1. repertoire hierarchy

      "Skill-stack" is just the tech bro's means of referring to what Engelbart understood years before kambucha and man-buns were in style.

    2. The conceptual framework we seek must orient us toward the real possibilities and problems associated with using modern technology to give direct aid to an individual in comprehending complex situations, isolating the significant factors, and solving problems.

      This problem of orientation is more true today than ever and I'm just not convinced that Silicon Valley (however well-intentioned) represents the right group to devise a framework to truly serve EVERYONE.

      Anyone interested in joining a grassroots effort to help influence those at the top? Let me know - wkendal-at-gmail

    1. We encourage annotators to indicate their relationship to Engelbart and his work by tagging annotations and replies.

      Recommending CROWDLAAERS, as an additional visual data layer to augment our collective work here.

    1. Faculty development is in dire need of transformation to reflect the realities ofteaching in digital, online environments.

      There's both An Urgency of Teachers, as well as an urgency of faculty development at the moment.

    2. As demands on educators’time are many, requir-ing them to spend time on learning that seems less relevant to their immediate inter-ests or needs, which holds no flexibility to fit within their other priorities, or goesunrewarded by administrators would likely create (justified) resistance from their sideand be an unfair use of their labor.

      Reminds me of a recent Twitter thread from @jessifer

      “Do less with less” is my current mantra. Also, “Wear one hat.” And, “Do the work of one person.”

    3. Marginal Syllabus
    4. using open source technologies that do not carry a corporate agendaand offer transparency

      If we could all just take this seemingly simple step (I'm just as guilty as the next), a much less dystopian future might start to appear on the horizon.

    5. Essential components of heutagogy are self-reflection and“double-loop learning”(Blaschke,2012), where double-loop learning involves two levels of learning

      How does one learn (or perhaps more relevant here, teach) the process of “double-loop learning”? Building an effective and sustained practice of single-loop metacognition alone seems to be a lifelong pursuit.

    6. umulative trans-formative learning

      Connecting faculty to sustained, reflective, cumulative PD might be the greatest challenge facing HigherEd. Without it, the chasm between our pedagogical assumptions and student expectations is only to grow wider over time. [much thinky face]

    7. Trans-formation may occur either suddenly (what Mezirow terms“epochal”) or progressivelyover time (what Mezirow calls“cumulative”)

      Transformative learning can be “epochal” or “cumulative” just like the potential for the singularity (is it creeping up or will it happen in a flash?)

    8. The ability to see connections between fields, ideas, and concepts is a core skill.

      Speaking of connections...this is exactly why I love Steven Johnson

    9. Imagination of how things could be otherwis

      Reminded of a Sean Michael Morris' post, Wide-awakeness and Critical Imagination.

      "Agency is nothing more complicated than our ability to intervene in reality as historical subjects. Which means things can change, can be otherwise."

    10. A call for promoting ownership, equity, andagency in faculty development viaconnected learning

      Looking forward to this connected and collaborative annotation jam. Feel free to jump in anytime, but be sure to join January 31 from 6-8pm to connect with the live Denver audience.

      A big thank you to Maha and Autumm for creating and sharing these ideas; ones we will all collectively benefit from.

    1. You might not consider Alexander Graham Bell an alchemist

      Alchemist without question.

    1. begin.

      Hooks is a modern day pedagogical gangster :) To most, her depth of compassion would seem to be the full scope of what's necessary, but for her, this is just where learning begins.

    2. I blame instructional design

      I might extend this blame to the military industrial complex (i.e. the birthplace of ID) and perhaps even Skinner and Bloom and some early pioneers.

      Necessity may be the mother of invention, but that doesn't necessarily mean that the invention will be infinitely durable. The need for ID 2.0 (or perhaps a complete reinvention) came years ago, so perhaps we skip a few releases and shoot straight for ID 10.0 (IDX anyone?).

    3. Not safe space, necessarily, daring space

      I love this framing. The "safe space" rhetoric, though important in its intention, doesn't do much to help amplify silenced voices. Instead of just safe, what might we do to create heroic potential, leaps of faith, and a willingness to be daring regardless of the safety nets that may or may not exist?

    1. Her practice is mindful of the landscape.

      Hmm...much like the idea of the moral landscape (to which I've changed my mind having read Harris' book) I like the idea of the pedagogical landscape. There are always valleys and peaks to navigate and each intersecting system requires a recalibration of how best to approach the impending decent or climb.

    1. If students live in a culture that digitizes and educates them through a screen, they require an education that empowers them in that sphere, teaches them that language, and offers new opportunities of human connectivity.

      Any alternative seems a negligent (bordering criminal) act towards our student's future selves and the culture and society they will ultimately and collectively craft. Onward we must fight!

    1. I believe he meant “we (Americans?) need to (listen to?) perspectives of Others”.

      Certainly more reflective (it matters most for elite classes) but everyone is better off with consistent exposure to HUMANITY (in the broadest sense of the word).

    2. Can you make more effort to listen to more people *like me* (or at least *not like you*) in terms of profile and background but who are not as active in channels you already frequent?

      Reflections abound...for whatever reason, the platform dictates the degree to which I make such effort (e.g. very intentional via YouTube, but not nearly as intentional via Twitter). Can't help but assume that my understanding of the underlying algorithms are at play here.

    3. Who has the privilege to choose to have global or local perspectives

      Damn...you mean to tell me it's complicated?

    4. They may do research and try to imagine, but nothing beats equitable participation from start to finish

      "I'm not sure what it will take to get folks to realize that diversity matters. Not in some fluffy feel good way but like a hard built in your product kind of way." YES...intentionality in design, not superficial appeals to the ego!

    5. making me think deeper about this

      It doesn't take much for naturally deep thinkers to be inspired to think deeper :)

    1. empowering, collaborative, and just architecture for learning

      I’m not sure if we need to aim for much more.

    1. Thu Nov 15, 2018

      Ignore me! :)

    2. Tue Oct 2, 2018

      Ignore Me! :)

      FYI...these scheduled web meetings were pulled from previous semesters. You can ignore these and we will schedule ones which are most convenient for our group this semester.

    1. Dylan's old tour bus serves as an auxiliary studio

      Rubin is straight gangster!

    2. It's gonna feel unapologetic, uncompromising, and it's gonna feel me

      Similar to the above quote...I love that he's found a place where the listener means everything and nothing. He knows the odds of his message being heard are directly proportional to his capacity for subjective authenticity.

    3. “I always said to myself, if I said it on a record, I never retract my statements. Because it’s my self-expression, and you can have your opinions on it, you can feel a certain type of way, but it’s how I feel. And I can’t contradict that at all.”

      There's freedom in discovering your truth. It makes the constant worries of "on the record" self-expression vanish. Musicians/artists are often perfect examples of how liberating this can be.

    1. higher education has become widely regarded as a vehicle for driving innovation

      Is this true? I've witnessed quite the opposite as far as perceptions go.

    2. Digital Fluency

      Another version of the most ambiguous element of our modern edtech lexicon. Fluency, literacy, what do we want to call it and how is it defined? Not to get morbid, but people dying is likely our hope towards this concept stabilizing (surely just in time for something equally confusing to crop up).

    3. Brought to you by EDUCAUSE

      Not a tagline I ever thought I'd see come along with the HR. Great to see so many individuals/orgs/and even brand new projects jump in to support this important work.

    4. Slightly confused by the switchboard graphic. Am I missing the connection? Something about future trends and adjusting variables?

    1. influencer resources

      Btw...credit to ILT professor, Remi Kalir, for pushing the use of Hypothesis and advocating for syllabus annotation).

    2. INTE 5100 – Planning and Design for Instruction

      Thanks for jumping into our evolving and annotated course contract (i.e. syllabus). This is a shared space for continued discussion and negotiation about the course (and also a chance to learn/play with Hypothesis).

      A few ways annotation might be useful here:

      • Discuss specific terminology or phrasing.
      • Ask contextual questions about specific course details.
      • Provide links to other connected resources.
    3. The quizzes will be open book(s) and open note. You have multiple opportunities tocomplete them so you can demonstrate mastery of the content

      Many of the quiz scenarios reference concepts from the Dirksen text, so know that these assessments will be more challenging without that resource.

    4. Dirksen, J. (2016). Design for how people learn (2  ed.). San Francisco, CA: New Riders

      I highly recommend this text, and while you can find it via Amazon, know that there are earlier (cheaper) versions available for those willing to dig.

    1. The quizzes will be open book(s) and open note. You have multiple opportunities to complete them so you can demonstrate mastery of the content.

      Many of the quiz scenarios reference concepts from the Dirksen text, so know that these assessments will be more challenging without that resource.

    2. Dirksen, J. (2016). Design for how people learn (2nd ed.). San Francisco, CA: New Riders.

      I highly recommend this text, and while you can find it via Amazon, know that there are earlier (cheaper) versions available for those willing to dig.

    3. highlight any text

      Any and all text can be highlighted and annotated. Don't hold back...this is an open layer for conversations.

  7. Apr 2018
    1. I’ve always had a huge crush on criticism: there’s nothing sexier than an elegant argument that slowly uncovers a hidden truth, plumbing the depths of what appeared flat.

      We've developed a similar love interest...good thing criticism doesn't adhere to the societal norms of monogamy :)

    1. Practical Classroom Application

      Could this/does this open doors for a new hybrid research paradigm (or if it exists, please share)? I see practical parallels elements you might find in a Design Science) or similar approach.

    1. budgets dictate tools used.

      This represents a major issue to me. The tool potential is directly correlated to funding. The UCF's can build RealizeIt into their long-term vision while others struggle to scrape together approval for a few free Wordpress sites.

    1. Statistical Methods

      Can't help but be immediately skeptical of statistical analyses tied to emotionally-fueled research.

    2. many are advocating increasing provision of civic media literacyeducation (Hobbs, 2010). Our focus in this study is on media literacy learn-ing opportunities that aim to promote accurate judgment of truth claims.

      I often look to the open course, Calling Bullshit (Univ. of Washington) as a starting point.

    3. This study takes as a starting point the proposition that democracyworks better when participants care about the accuracy of truth claims

      It's still endlessly troubling that this has to be spelled out and legitimized and can't just be accepted.

    1. declares independence.

      How often has domination (or downright genocide) accompanied a "declaration of independence?" Very much depends on the subtext, so the skepticism, unfortunately, seems historically justified. If only we could mean well AND do right.

    2. 1,337 words

      What's the fewest number of words one could base an entire 16 week class on and what would those words be?

    3. They showed me things that I had never seen in texts that I thought I knew so well

      To be vulnerable within this power-dynamic is perhaps the ultimate display of truly teaching. The skill is to to so while gaining, not losing, respect and admiration (I'm not there).

    1. This is a dangerous imbalance, since the greater the wonders of a technology, the greater will be its negative consequences.

      Underlies almost every conversation about technology...how far have we really come in 20 years?

    2. I doubt that the 21stcentury will pose for us problems that are more stunning, disorienting or complex than those we faced in this century

      Somebody please bring him back and tell him about our president.

    3. 1Five Things We Need to Know About Technological Change

      For those interested in digging deeper after tonights #Pedagome chat, let's dissect Neil Postman's, 5 Things We Need to Know About Technological Change. Should be a fun "then and now" perspective.

    1. I moved in the right direction when I stopped believing that I was the one who knew and they were the ones who needed to know. I became curious about what I didn’t know.

      Curiosity absolutely stems from humility!

    2. When they wrote, they had spelling errors and grammar issues, despite—or because of—the Warriner drills or my lack of knowledge about African American Vernacular English, but their logic and evidence spun circles around me.

      And what's really more valuable today? We need to empower and give credit to kids who show tenacity and worldly insight.

    1. From the perspective of African American writer and journalist Ta-Nehisi Coates

      I highly recommend Coates and Noah in tandem. I inadvertently collided their writings and the resulting effect was profound (refracted perspective).

    2. Scholars have exhaustively documented the discrimina-tory treatment that minoritized populations continue to experience

      Where do you turn when scholarship and science get brushed aside?

    1. Annotating DML

      Few conference sessions offer this level of supplemental reference. Thanks for rockin' DML!

    1. #2017dml @cogdog trying to break annotation with #netnarr students @hypothes_is

      As he's known to do :)

    1. various ways internet comedy and music keep alive the prospects of change in her home country, Egypt, encouraging young people to remain skeptical of entrenched power and ready to mobilize for revolutionary change when the moment is right.

      Comedy/sarcasm/satire is often viewed as a means of avoiding real issues, but I agree that these can be key societal preparatory tools when revolutionary change is needed. Looking forward to Yomna's work!

    2. More and more young people around the world are finding and deploying their voices online

      Digital is the native landscape of our youth. We need to provide them the freedom and encouragement to pave the way for progressive discourse among the spaces with which they're most familiar.
