My presentation at Open Learning this week focuses on building a MOOC that doesn't require registration, and for that matter, dispenses with as much counting and tracking as I can get rid of. Why? Well - ask youself, how would a typical educational application or service rate on the tos;dr website. Probably an 'E', the lowest possible rating, along with such companies as Facebook, Amazon and Apple. Do they track you? Sell your data? Change terms arbitrarily? Edit...Leer más
This post from a couple weeks ago is less about the news in the headline and more of a way to introduce readers to CultureAmp, a company that makes tools that encourage employee engagement, mutual support, and company culture. Disco (formerly called GrowBot) was a Slack plugin that was "an AI-based 'nudging' system that helps you and your team pay attention to each other,...Leer más
"'Next year, we'll be able to see each other in person!'" says the host. Unnoticed, about a third of the attendees wince. They're the folks in Alaska, New Zealand, or Israel, who in normal times would struggle to attend." Count me as among the wincers. Sure, pre-pandemic I got to travel a lot, but that was only through invitations to speak, which meant that I was basically never returning to conferences. During the pandemic, however, I have been treated to a virtual wealth of conferences, and even though I have to pay...Leer más

This is a pretty good overview of how to work in teams from Miro, an online collaborative whiteboard platform. Yes, it's marketing, but I think educators trying to understand how to work in our new hybrid learning environment will get a lot from it. "It is more crucial than ever to create a culture that is inclusive of working from anywhere, at any time," they write. It's not a...Leer más
This is a short 15-minute version of a longer presentation; I offered this condensed version at an in-house meeting at NRC and felt it was worth sharing the slides, audio and video to a wider audience. This was the first of three presentations I gave today in a three hour span, all different, which I bring to you as a set., () Oct 19, 2021 [Link] [Slides] [... Leer más
Hoy vamos a revisar uno de los muchos bulos lingüísticos que circulan por esas redes sociales de nuestros pecados. Hay quien afirma tajante que no se debe decir mala ortografia y que tan solo es válida la expresión tiene faltas de ortografía. Siguiendo en esa línea, y ya de rebote, aprovechan para descalificar la combinación …No se debe decir ‘mala ortografía’ apareció primero en BLOG DE LENGUA.
I guess it's easier to attribute blame for this to 'India' instead of the funders and organizers (such as the World Bank and the Gates Foundation). There's certainly blame to go around. "The program spent money on an app to track which kids were malnourished, but it didn't offer...Leer más
This article is less about using Google forms and more about identifying sources of bias and prejudice in one's own teaching practice. I think it's a good introductory discussion overall, as it posits a set of thought experiments and activities that induce the reader to reflect on...Leer más
