Why Students Should Blog in Public - 0 views

  •  
    "There are many answers to that question, but here is one: Public edu-blogging is an essential element of digital age education, because a student blog acts as a launch pad for developing and leveraging student connectivity, reflexivity, and personal learning networks."

    "the charter schools seem to mine the local district of low-cost special education students while leaving the traditional schools with students who have the most severe disabilities. He points to data showing the district's charter schools tends to serve high proportions of low-cost special needs students - those with speech and hearing disabilities, for instance - while serving low proportions of high-cost special needs students, such as those with autism or emotional problems."

The New Public - 0 views

    "In fall 2006, former DJ, point guard and teacher turned first-time principal, James O'Brien, opened a small public high school in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, where 1/3 of residents live below the poverty line and the graduation rate is 40%. With infectious optimism, O'Brien and his team of eight undertook an unconventional approach and ambitious mission: Create a school with an arts-oriented curriculum that also emphasizes self-development, community collaboration and social change. Initially, the buzz from everyone was that this was a dream come true. "

    "An all-digital public library is opening today, as officials in Bexar County, Texas, celebrate the opening of the BiblioTech library. The facility offers about 10,000 free e-books for the 1.7 million residents of the county, which includes San Antonio. On its website, the Bexar County BiblioTech library explains how its patrons can access free eBooks and audio books. To read an eBook on their own device, users must have the 3M Cloud Library app, which they can link to their library card. The app includes a countdown of days a reader has to finish a book - starting with 14 days, according to My San Antonio."

CUCFA President Meister's Open Letter to Coursera Founder Daphne Koller - 0 views

  •  
    A true educational Commons would be a force for reducing academic hierarchy and income inequality. I'm all in favor of that. You say you are too. But is that what you are telling your partners in finance and university administration? Or are you telling them that they can accumulate even more of what they already have-money and prestige-while appearing to be giving it away? I will know my course has been successful when my students understand Coursera's business model behind offering free higher education globally (along with the promise of greater social equality) as an exciting venture capital investment opportunity through which to increase privately-held wealth and lock in existing educational hierarchies.

"Socially Mediated Publicness": an open-access issue of JOBEM - 1 views

  •  
    Nancy and I decided to organize the special issue around "socially mediated publicness," both because we find that topic to be of great interest and because we felt like there was something fun about talking about publicness in truly public form. We weren't sure what the response to our call would be, but were overwhelmed with phenomenal submissions and had to reject many interesting articles.

    I guess as social media continues to expand at rapid rates...there will be many law suites...K-12 schools probably more than universities may be hit harder. Not sure...

Range of Public and Private in My Courses - 0 views

  •  
    " I thought I would outline that range of public and private interactions in my classes, starting with the very most public and then progressing step by step to the most private: email. Although I have made a lot of changes to the content and procedures and technology in my courses over the past ten years, I have really not changed this balance of public and private - somehow or other, I blundered into a configuration of public and private that worked perfectly for me right from the start of my online teaching career."
