It's #WriterWednesday so I am challenging a #SquadGoalsNetwork member at random with a #WritingPrompt.The randomizer has chosen @greeneterry to write a short piece to introduce the network to three people you admire. — Squad Goals Network (@SqdGlsNtwrk) November 7, 2018 What a crazy coincidence ! The weird fellow who is currently running the Squad Goals Network‘s social media game has some randomizer that chose me to write a short piece about three people I admire. Thanks weirdo! The prompt prompted me, […]

Ajar Educational Practices

Ontario Extend 9x9x25 Post #6 It’s not a binary, open or closed. I have written this sentence before, as I reflected on attending the Open Ed Conference in 2016.  I think I kind of forgot about it as my work got more and more ensconced in Open. I was almost always talking to, working with, and working for The Open (i.e. those who are fully… in… to… it.). I think I’ve become less and less relatable to those who are […]

Gaming Gamification

9x9x25 Post #5 I have dabbled in the gamification of learning experiences. I think there is promise in using game elements to make learning more engaging in some places. I also think most of us are not there yet. Like many other facets of life there’s that balance to find between intrinsic and extrinsic motivation. A lot of work to gamify things seems to be focusing too much on the extrinsic. And like all those other facets of life, the […]

The Wrong Tool for the Job

Ontario Extend 9x9x25 Post #4 Well it’s vise grips for pliers, and pliers for a wrench A wrench for a hammer, hammers everything else ~Corb Lund, Hard On Equipment This past weekend I struggled through trying to fix a couple things that should have been simple around the house. It involved drywall, screws, anchors, towel racks, curtain rods, and a hammer of course. You always need a hammer, right? It eventually involved hanging a small painting to cover up some […]

Squad Goal Number One – Met

This is the Ontario Extend 9x9x25 Challenge post #…2? for the Squad Goals Network Team Do you want in? Okay, you’re in. I’m a new member of the Squad Goals Network. I’m grateful to have been invited in  by John Stewart (but you don’t need an invitation) when we connected to record an episode of my podcast. He told me about this group of folks doing this strange thing… working to bring people together, share each other’s stories, and (more […]

Hark! An #OpenEd18 Reflection

Last week the Open Education Conference was held in Niagara Falls, New York. I am going to hark back on my experience there for my third post of the Ontario Extend 9x9x25 Reflective Writing Challenge. Post #OpenEd18, now deep into followup micro obsessions (H/T @jesshmitchell): @drmjbishop's Niagara Barrel Heroine, the 63 year old Annie Edson Taylor, first person to daredevil over the falls (having first tested the efficacy of her barrel on her cat): https://t.co/3h2rkApbjO — Dan Blickensderfer (@Dan_Blick) October […]

The Ghost of Questions Not Asked

This is IDIGOntario‘s 2nd post of the #9x9x25 Challenge When I signed up to be on the IDIG team I very vaguely said that I would like to write something about the “Front End Analysis” phase of Instructional Design. Also known as the “what are we doing and why” part. If you do this part well you can avoid making big mistakes down the road. You might even realize that you shouldn’t even do it at all. You also tend […]

Like Driving a Minivan

This is my second 9X9X25 Challenge post for Ontario Extend. The challenge asks you to reflectively write on the open Web about your teaching. For this post, I want to step back and write a bit about writing itself. Especially writing in the open. It can be scary. Maybe it doesn’t need to be quite so. I think it’s like driving. You are free to drive no matter what kind of car you have access to. I drive a minivan. […]

The Plan

This is my first post for the Ontario Extend 9x9x25 reflective writing about teaching and learning challenge. What I have, teaching and learning-wise, to be reflective about right now is Ontario Extend itself. So my 9x9x25 posts will either be meta-Extend, or Extend-ception. Not sure yet. This post’s outline was provided by the band Built to Spill, in the lyrics to their song The Plan. I can legally share the live version of the song here. Well, the first 30 […]
