- Developing a blog over time and all of its assemblages
- The limits of informal learning in online spaces
- The potential of open movements, such as DoOO and #Indieweb
To be honest, these investigations are always ongoing. That is what I like about the idea of a Wikity blog.
If your point is about when am I going to do my Masters, I am not sure. Is it free? I think that if or when I do eventually dive in, it will probably be research-based, rather than solely course work.
#indieweb replies are not necessarily what I thought they would be. I had this strange idea that they would allow me to leave normal comments on somebody else’s blog. Instead, they just leaves a pingback? I wonder if I am missing something? I am wondering if POSSE plays some part here?
Another interesting example of the potential is the Classroom Extension. Not only does it allow you to easily set assignments, but when installed by staff and students, it provides the means to send a sight to students. This though is taken to a whole new level by Hapara, which allows teachers to lock a student’s screen. It can be easy to view Hapara poorly, but it only builds on what Google makes possible. This is taken to its zenith with Hapara Analytics.
I will not deny, I have drank the KoolAid (and probably still do). I think though that like with all technology, I am somewhat in awe of the affordances, but also critical of the consequences. I wonder about Martin Weller’s call to ‘rewild edtech’. For me one thing that needs to change is data, as Caulfield suggests, at the least that would be a start.
