Congratulations Chris. Intriguing role, does it include edu or is it more about business and beyond? Exciting times.

I don’t even get a mention in Ms 8’s creations. No space for adults.

Dustin Miller explains his process for using technology to help analyse the redacted Mueller Report. This involves:

  • four optical character recognition libraries to make the text searchable.
  • named entity recognition and parts of speech to establish co-references.
  • n-grams to identify dates, people, locations and correlations.

This provides an insight into the “messy, dirty truth of data science” and machine learning. You can find more information here.

Until your mention Jon, I had never heard of The Midnight. Spent today immersing myself. Love it! Thank you for the recommendation.

This is one of the challenges I have with Taleb’s Black Swan. It would seem you cannot have your cake and eat it to.

Not deliberately, but I often reference older material. I think the challenge is to have a structured process/activity to support such reflections.

I had a go at writing (and presenting) my own guide to being a connected educator a few years ago. I really like your point that a PLN is not something you create in an afternoon, for me it is a verb, not a noun.

I have experienced a combination of LMS (Sentral, Compass, Synergetic) and social media (Facebook pages). I have discussed the use of Slides for newsletters in the past. I also think that there is scope for storing ‘newsletters’ in Google Drive to embed elsewhere.

Personally, I think that it is a balance between where parents are and where you want them to be. I think a lot of people baulk at something like Edublogs because it is another space to log into, however I have significant concerns about sending people to places like Facebook and other such sites because of the issues with algorithms and advertising.

What annoys me most though about most forms of notifications is that they often send out a link to the information with just enough detail to get you to click, but not enough to be content.
