  • It’s the thing that’s informing everything that I do.

      Finding that kernal of drive is important, and then reflecting on it .. even more important.
  • I realised in retrospect that people paid for the mode of delivery, never the mode of information.
  • This next paradigm shift is where the image is breaking away from the photograph

      Social identity? Digital identity? Important concepts to teach and to understand, particularly with the sand shifting beneath our feet almost daily (it seems).

      Being part of online networks linked by passion or cause or course or anything else, can mean a long term supportive relationship with people but it takes time to learn how to do that, and it would help if it was taught explicitly to school students but in context.
  • Most of my students it turns out weren’t in the room, and I began to have quite close relationships with a number of them.
  • The class moves out of the classroom.
    • Kevin Hodgson
       
      Hello, open education!
  • What these people need is to be able to be trusted and to be heard, and these are the people that aren’t in the class.
    • Kevin Hodgson
       
      This makes me think about equity and access issues, for some reasons, and how to ensure that entry into learning is available for everyone. Certainly, that is the guiding ethos of open learning spaces, right?
  • a second paradigm shit at the moment
  • how do we propagate and sustain interest driven learning?
    • Terry Elliott
       
      Interesting choice of words--propagate.  There are lots of ways to propagate.  And like the biological world some of them are a real pain in the ass.  Take the pawpaw tree. Please.  In order to fruit (seed propagate) it has to have a very specific carrion fly to get into its flower (as I recall anyway, I am not a botanist, YMMV).  If it doesn't, then no fruit.  Luckily the tree also propagates rhizomatically.  So...in learning terms we need to be prepared for difficult propagation and easy propagation.  And these vary wildly from discipline to discipline.

  • Even if, today, all they want to grow into is someone whose Moodle gradebook works right.)
    • Terry Elliott
       
      I propose that the words "even if" be a catch phrase every time we enter into a service act.  
  • I wonder how we set expectations for this kind of service. I suspect one answer is that we change from talking about tools we support, to talking about tasks we support within tools.
    • Terry Elliott
       
      This is so wise.  Move from nouns to verbs. Valorize the act of serving--the tools will get their due as a matter of course.
  • I think there will also be a new kind of community growing up. My neighbor once told me that he couldn’t fix my riding mower’s starter, but he could show me how to hotwire it with a screwdriver. I think some part of our job will get more “neighborly” like that.
    • Terry Elliott
       
      In a vibrant community we all have important roles.  Most of us, however, won't get into the history books.  The privileging of the big man or woman in history is one of the most profound blindspots we have in American culture.  We just gotta start casting our eyes around to work with those at arm's length, virtually or actually.

  • we were not sure how it would go, but it soon become clear that the kids are alright

      OK, this is the secret sauce of teaching and critical pedagogy in general:  trust.  I love how more often than not, the kid really are alright.

  • We teamed up our classes, and each group worked on a coding activity at Code.org based on the movie, Frozen, where the task is to create visual fractals with Blockly code.
    • Terry Elliott
       
      It would be of real value to know how you decided on this particular activity.  What drew you to it? Why did you think it might bridge your students? Was there a Plan B?  Just would be neat to know how you decided to take the teaching risk this particular way.  If it was just a hunch, they why do you think you had that hunch?  I suspect that you both have a long history together where this is an almost seamless colllaboration but teasing your process out even a little bit might very well help others--like me.

      At Thomas Merton's Grave
      BY SPENCER REECE
      We can never be with loss too long.
      Behind the warped door that sticks,
      the wood thrush calls to the monks,
      pausing upon the stone crucifix,
      singing: "I am marvelous alone!"
      Thrash, thrash goes the hayfield:
      rows of marrow and bone undone.
      The horizon's flashing fastens tight,
      sealing the blue hills with vermilion.
      Moss dyes a squirrel's skull green.
      The cemetery expands its borders-
      little milky crosses grow like teeth.
      How kind time is, altering space
      so nothing stays wrong; and light,
      more new light, always arrives.

      Death, be not proud, though some have called thee

      Die not, poor Death, nor yet canst thou kill me.

      And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,   
      Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?
    • Terry Elliott
       
      One, two! One, two! And through and through

The Question of Education: Context, Scale, Binaries & GeneralizationsReflecting Allowed... - 0 views

  • lot of good learning occurs outside formal schooling.
    • Terry Elliott
       
      Charles Jennings/Harold Jarche/Jay Cross--all great stuff.
  • Dave that the edu systems of today are made from historical remnants that no longer apply for what our edu goals for today should be
    • Terry Elliott
       
      So much of how I analyze mod. ed problems is informed by the idea the future is not only already here (federatedwiki for example) but a moving target that is always unevenly distributed.  To me much of the prob with education is its uneven distribution.
  • Why can’t we just have more teachers who care to have students care about learning and who care to foster agency?
    • Terry Elliott
       
      Exactly,  thinking in complexity terms, we need to change the simplest set of initial conditions for learning.  That will reform any system.  We still can't predict where those conditions will emerge,but we sure know where the conditions are leading our students now.

      three on the main line

      all to tell us what we already
      figured out on our own
      by looking out the window ...
      school has been cancelled
      due to the white covering and
      the threat of rain, freezing all of our plans
      in their tracks....

      I was born by the river
      In a little tent
      And just like the river
      I've been running ever since

      It's been a long, long time coming
      But I know a change gonna come
      Oh, yes it will

      It's been too hard living
      But I'm afraid to die
      I don't know what's up there beyond the sky

      It's been a long, long time coming
      But I know a change gonna come
      Oh yes it will

      Then I go to my brother
      I say brother help me please
      But he winds up knocking me
      Back down on my knees

      There's been times that I thought
      I couldn't last for long
      But now I think I'm able to carry on
      It's been a long, long time coming
      But I know a change is gonna come
      Oh, yes it will

      Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
      With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
      Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
      A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
      Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
      Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
      world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
      The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
      "Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
      With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
      Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
      The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
      Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
      I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

      See this as a way to be systematic and overt about observation so that we become more mindful and more actively less mindless.
