- Teaching with Technology: Numbers – Numbers from Bedford/StM surveys on use of digital pedagogies 2004-2010. Use is still low; 2 years tend to use tech to lighten their admin load rather than teach with. Use the article in #CompTheory fall. – (CompTheory survey digital_literacy digital_pedagogy pedagogy )
- NSFW: Sarah Palin – How’s That Promotey, Embargoey Stuff Workin’ Out for Ya? – i love this guy, using the Palin Massive as a case study for author and publisjer gamesmanship. "publishers simply don’t have the luxury of controlling the flow of information any more. The idea that they can release thousands of preview copies of a new title, in electronic form, weeks (or even months) ahead of publication and rely on a gentleman’s agreement with the press that their embargo will be respected is simply laughable." – (publishing politics )
- EPIC FAIL: the sorry state of web education in schools | opensource.com – via tech_rhet. Move away from teaching and using proprietary software – from Word to Dreamweaver – and start incorporating open source and web-based stuff – the kind of stuff that students can use to get beyond the proprietary. Excellent little article, but I wonder what took them so long to figure this out. Academia doesn't move as slowly as all that. Been doing this, and wrestling with it, for years. Might want to read this in conjunction with TBL's Long Live the Web. – (ple pedagogy webdesign wcw berners-lee plenk2010# )
I have tried and tried, and for many things, an iPad was enough – reading and annotating books and pdfs, reading and annotating rss feeds, taking notes, drafting and revising single- and multi-page print documents, some management and editing of photos, keeping up with email, twittering, even keeping a local wiki. But for blogging when drawing on multiple sources, it falls flat.

- I have a reason buy Air Display
- Web 3.0 – I usually dislike videos as intros/discussion starters because they wallow in their own existence, but this – assembled clips of the semanterati in 2010 declaring their points – is superbly done. Well selected, really well edited, and substantive. – (semanticweb web3.0 #CritLit2010 )

- Jean Lave, Etienne Wenger and communities of practice – Thoughts and comments on COPs, from "Jean Lave and Etienne Wenger (1991) Situated Learning. Legitimate peripheral participation, Cambridge: University of Cambridge Press. 138 pages. Pathbreaking book that first developed the idea that learning 'is a process of participation in communities of practice, participation that is at first legitimately peripheral but that increases gradually in engagement and complexity'." – (cop ple #CritLit2010 )

- Rethinking e-Portfolios – And of course, we still have to solve that issue of control and ownership. And as John says, students pick up what is intended. If we continue to adhere to an acquisition model of learning, it will be hard to persuade students to develop reflective e-Portfolios. – (efolios pedagogy ple )
- Writing Spaces | Readings on Writing – Writing wants to be free. A significant project, but the anti-wiki spin isn't really necessary: "An Alternative to Wiki Textbooks. Some teachers might have thought about participating in other open access textbook projects like Wikibooks, but have not for fear that such work would go unrewarded in tenure and promotion. Writing Spaces' individually authored texts and more traditional proposal and peer review process gives you a line on your CV with direct publication credit for your work.An Alternative to Wiki Textbooks

Seems the project is heavily embedded in traditional writing spaces. – (publishing writing wikibooks pedagogy literature book )
- if:book: a clean well-lighted place for books – "The purpose of this new set of notes is to expand the thinking beyond how a specific text is presented or interacted with. Reading (and writing) do not happen only at the level of the individual work. There is a broad ecology of behaviors, activities and micro-environments that surround each work and our relationship to it — how things come to be written, how we choose what to read, how we make the purchase, how we share our experience with others. Currently (i.e. toward the end of age of print), that ecology is defined by agent/editor mechanisms of acquisition, sharp delineation between authors and readers, top-down marketing, heavy reliance on big mainstream media to get the word out, the bookshelves that make our books part of our daily life, bookstores and — yes — Amazon." – (books ebook publishing reading marketing ebooks library2.0 )
