Wright: From ivory tower to academic sweatshop - Salon.com (2005) - 4 views

    Great article on how online teaching changes college hierarchies and control, and leads to diploma mills and academic sweatshops.

    Hi

    That's some cat!

    We get this kind of thing in NZ too. Whole private institutions have been implicated in selling fake qualifications to overseas students. It's very depressing trying to maintain educational couth when we lecturers are required to justify failing students...

    Hi Clare

    Thanks for the interesting article. It brings to mind David Velleman's piece on Second life (American Imago, 2008, 65) where he distinguishes between the different forms of agency in 'pretend play' and the virtual world. In the former, a child may intend his character to have varying emotions but he usually does not consider that character as actually being an angry cowboy, say. Attributed feelings and beliefs remain the child's though he may invest his character with them. In Second Life, though, participants don't attribute attitudes like anger or love to their avatars, but simply thoughts and intentions towards the fictional world. Added to this oddity, Velleman reports that avatars act in ways more consistent with their 'personalities' than those of their movers. This may be an understandable form of escapism - like the mild-mannered vicar who is a terror in war games - or it may indicate a puzzling fantasy, such as where an old man adopts the persona of a young, vivacious girl - or it may resemble the transference observed in the psychoanalytic clinic. What number and concatenation of desires, beliefs, disguises and passions might be expressed in this world?

    Unlike children's play, which has the resonance of wish-fulfilment, the avatar seems more complicated and more like the various 'selves' that are expressed in dreaming. Certainly, the Second Life experience allows the participant to 'overcome barriers of space and time, facilitating instructional practices that [allow] for experiential activities which would not have been otherwise available' - very like the dream world which ignores the law of the excluded middle and the logic of rationality. And there are at least four kinds of agency in manifest dreams, according to Freud (SE 4 & 5): the (self)conscious agent, seeking coherent engagement towards an understood goal; the subject who unconsciously wants to express his unacceptable desires and who equally unc

The Teacher's Guide To Using Posterous Spaces - Edudemic - 6 views

  •  
    It's important to be aware of the latest education technology out there. So let's say you want to have your students have a personalized blog that reflects their likes, dislikes and style. Where do you turn? There's Facebook (too regimented and big), Tumblr (a good option but can be pricey for premium themes), WordPress.com (also good but can be a bit complicated for non-tech-savvy users) and many others. But there's one relatively new service that you should know about.
