    • Jacqualine Dyess
       
      She has interesting observations on students' writing in blogs vs. term paper.
  • Multitasking is the ideal mode of the 21st century, not just because of information overload but also because our digital age was structured without anything like a central node broadcasting one stream of information that we pay attention to at a given moment
    • Lisa M Lane
       
      Well, this is the hype, indeed. The idea that individualized learning (and attention and retention of information and anything else) is archaic is becoming a mainstay or the idea of new "snack learning". The ideas of connectivism can support this, but they should supplement individual knowledge, not replace it.
  • are a mismatch between the age we live in and the institutions we have built over the last 100-plus years
    • Lisa M Lane
       
      Our institutions are older than this, and the processes that take place in education have almost always been at odds with what's happening in society, often because society disdains intellectualism much of the time.

  • Attention to task is at the heart of industrial labor management
    • Lisa M Lane
       
      Attention to task is also at the heart of craftsmanship, and is representative of care, dedication, and focus.
  • an educational experiment without a syllabus
    • Lisa M Lane
       
      I love experimentation in any form!
  • we were crowdsourcing educational innovation for a digital age
    • Lisa M Lane
       
      Well, they were crowdsourcing the idea of giving up-to-date consumer technology to students and seeing what happens. That's a good sociology experiment, but is it educational innovation?
  • persuaded a professor to require one for a course and came up with a learning app in that course. Does that sound sneaky?
    • Lisa M Lane
       
      Coercion of faculty cleverly disguised as innovation. There's a good idea. WTF?
  • they came up with far more learning apps
    • Lisa M Lane
       
      This has extraordinary pedagogical merit, but once an app has been created, what then? Does the next class build apps, or just "consume" them?

      Must be nice. I teach 200 each semester.
  • "Participatory learning" is one term used to describe how we can learn together from one another's skills. "Cognitive surplus" is another used in the digital world for that "more than the sum of the parts" form of collaborative thinking that happens when groups think together online.
    • Lisa M Lane
       
      I would just call this "community", a necessary ingredient for classes where collaboration is significant to the goals of the class.
  • I challenged my students to use their knowledge to make Wikipedia better.
    • Lisa M Lane
       
      The best thing about Wikipedia isn't just that you can add to it, but that you can see the history of how an entry changed, and examine why.
  • teaching a class based on learning and the Internet
    • Lisa M Lane
       
      Much of the innovation I've seen is in classes like this, self-referencing disciplines. Does using new tools and techniques to study the use of tools and techniques tell us how this would work in academic classes?
  • blogs
    • Lisa M Lane
       
      "posts" is meant here
  • Online blogs directed at peers exhibit fewer typographical and factual errors, less plagiarism, and generally better, more elegant and persuasive prose than classroom assignments by the same writers
    • Lisa M Lane
       
      Study needed her for sure.
  • That democratizing of who can pass judgment is digital thinking
    • Lisa M Lane
       
      Crowdsourcing grading doesn't seem like a good solution here. Are we grading them on how they learned (looks like everyone here gets an A) or what they learned?
  •  
    Thanks Lisa for critiquing Davidson's arguments. It helps to hear your perspective on her observations. I would also like to see further study of the differences between students' writing in blogs vs. more traditional forms of prose. I'll be looking out for research of that sort.

    Nice light description about online teaching

    Due to Diigo, some of the text was highlighted and it was comments from Lisa, just thought to share as an example of how web pages can be commented / shared.
