πŸ’¬ Too Long; Didn’t Read #171

Replied to Too Long; Didn’t Read #171 by Ian O'Byrne (W. Ian O'Byrne)
I’m currently reading Twitter and Tear Gas by Zeynep Tufekci. It’s a fascinating read that is making me question a lot of my thinking about these digital, social spaces.
I too have started reading Twitter and Tear Gas. I too am being challenged by it. I somehow thought that it wouldn’t be applicable in the field of EdTech. What it has me thinking is that in ‘networked publics’ there is not imaginary line where EdTech (whatever that actually means) starts and stops.

Thank you too for the shoutout. It definitely has sparked some interesting conversation. I read a post today about mindfulness apps, yet it overlooked the collection of data associated with the completion of various. We are asked to be conscious of our breathing, yet ignore the data that we share on a daily basis.

  1. I’m seeing a lot of parallels with Twitter & Tear Gas and my current research in social network analysis and activism. I think there are also a lot of things to consider as we think about literacy practices in these online spaces. Most of all critical evaluation of online info and trolling/bullying behaviors. πŸ™‚
    Thanks again for the feedback and support. πŸ™‚
