Blogging Across the Disciplines: Integrating Technology to Enhance Liberal Learning

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Blogging Across the Disciplines: Integrating Technology to Enhance Liberal Learning
Discussion of the use of blogs in the classroom, including a study of a particular classroom. The most interesting aspects were the discussion of gender differences (males had no problems with the technology, but females reported problems) and the argument that blogging promotes "liberal education goals".

Final Friday

Résultat de recherche d'images pour "hepi"Two housekeeping notes.  First, blog service will resume bright and early on January 6th.  Second, this will be my last-ever Friday blog.  Many of you have over the years asked how I manage to put out this blog every day.  The answer is that it is getting difficult for me to balance this with the growth of our business (it has been quite a good year at HESA Towers), so I’ve made a decision to pull back slightly and bring the blog down to a 4-times-per-week affair.

The Higher Ed Reading List

Résultat de recherche d'images pour "hepi"It’s the next-to-last blog of the year, and so as usual it’s time to review the various higher ed-related books I have read over the course of 2019, just in case some of you are dying to spend the holidays boning up on higher ed history/policy.  I will spare you a potted description of all the 40-odd books, and just stick to the highlights.

Liberté, égalité, fraternité, un combat d’actualité …

http://blog.educpros.fr/jean-claude-dupas/files/2014/03/blog-jean-claude-dupas.jpgBlog Educpros de Jean-Claude Dupas. L’article 2 de la Constitution française établit, sans ambiguïté aucune, la devise de la République : « Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité ». Pourtant, l’espace public bruisse aujourd’hui d’appréciations diverses des conditions d’exercice de ces trois principes fondateurs, notamment à l’école (et à l’université). Qu’en dire dans l’espace limité d’un blog ? Pour quoi ne pas proposer une approche par quelques illustrations. Plus...

Perpetual Growth

By Alex Usher. Just a quick one today, as the combination of a laptop failure and a MLS final in Seattle made the blog I had wanted to write impossible to finish. More...

Blogging - Not If but When and Where

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Blogging - Not If but When and Where
This post - which summarizes a presentation on blogging given at UPEI - makes the case for blogging. Nice links to examples. It responds to the Chronicle question, "What is the purpose of broadcasting one's unfiltered thoughts to the whole wired world?" My response is, simply, I think that my unfiltered thoughts are valuable and worthwhile". More...

Blog Day 2007

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Blog Day
So happy Blog day everyone, and in the tradition of Blog Day, five blogs that might not make my usual fare. Well, almost certainly would not, as I read them more for interest than for grist for this mill. Well, and maybe not blogs either, because I'm really bad at following rules:
- Edge - because this is the site that features the writings of Francisco Varela, a man who would be a blogger today - or at least, a regular read - if he were still around
- Ideant, by Ulises Ali Mejias. I've read a good part of his dissertation, Networked Proximity, and I'm pleased to say, I disagree with almost all of it. If I were Wittgenstein I would lecture him paragraph by paragraph about why he is wrong. But I'm me and I'm not sure what to do.
- Rabble - I send Rabble money to keep publishing because I think it performs an important service as a forum for alternative and progressive voices in Canadian society. When the police infiltrate the ranks of peaceful protests and incite riots by throwing rocks, we need someone to publish the other side and keep it real.
- Architectures of Control in Design - by Dan Lockton - currently displaying a blank screen; I hope it's back by the time you get to this. Everything I write is in one way or another about power and control (which has a lot to do with knowledge and perception). This blog not only offers a physical-world analogy, but also typifies the sort of thinking you need to be doing to see design from that different (and more important) perspective.
- Paleo-Future, by Matt. I have read a lot of science fiction over the years - thousands of books - and have seen futures come and go. This blog captures the 'futures that never were' and, on the way, the absolutely coolest things ever - like, for example, these wind powered robots (now I want to go out and make one). More...
