Bookmarked More on the mechanics of GDPR (Open Educational Thinkering)
Note: I'm writing this post on my personal blog as I'm still learning about GDPR. This is me thinking out loud, rather than making official Moodle pronouncements. 'Enjoyment' and 'compliance-focused courses' are rarely uttered in the same breath. I have, however, enjoyed my second week of learning from Futurelearn's
Doug Belshaw breaks down a number of points associated with the GDPR. During TIDE, he also makes the point that this will set a precedence moving forward in regards to the collection of data so will therefore have an influence on everyone. Eylan Ezekiel also provided a useful discussion a few months a go.

Interesting listening as always. Just a couple of quick points. In regards to the distraction of technology, my mother used to bring knitting (is that technology?) when she would watch me play cricket. I remember once I had lasted only a few balls, going out for a duck. As I walked off, she congratulated me and told me that I had played well. I knew that she neither had a clue what was going on or how I had played. That was long before the smartphone.

Another wondering was associated with the discussion of different identities online. Do you think that the #IndieWeb and the correlating principles counter that, with focus on POSSE and collective identity?

Check out my redesigned newsletter (and blog!)
Doug, I think I may have lost count to how many blogs you are up to, let alone domains. I have ventured down a different path of having two blogs, my main site and another which collects many disparate things. In part because I was struggling to maintain so many moving parts, but also because I have dived into the IndieWeb.

Do you have any hiccups with so many sites? For example, it was my understanding that Bridgy has certain limitations. Although moving away from the silos, I guess that may not be a concern?

Looking forward to following the links, along with the newsletter.

Aaron.
