Annotating As Augmenting? Coming to a Web Near You

Here goes one of those blog posts that start out with only a shred of an idea, so in the writing, maybe something emerges. Anyhow, for the Ontario Extend 9x9x25 its really writing about what you are thinking about, right? I’m thinking about a project I am working on with Gardner Campbell. Yes, that Gardner Campbell. We go way back, Dru Glu and I, and his ideas (see personal cyberinfrastructure and Bag of Gold) are foundational to much of the […]

Lean on me … 9x9x25 (#9)

Support, we’ve all needed it and we’ve all given it to those in need. As a teacher, it is easy to feel alone, a foreigner on a desert island. Without the support of family, friends, colleagues, and administration, it is hard to manage all that comes with the key to a classroom. To prevent burn-out, students and teachers alike need to create a network of supportive bodies around them. Friends serve different purposes in our lives, and depending on what […]

This Badge of Wrangler of Writing

I cast my 9x9x25 vote for Terry Greene and pin upon him this badge of Wrangler of Writing. Perhaps it can go by his other notable badges. Particularly, the True Friend badge from the infamous Talky Tina. He used his true friendship techniques to wrangle a group of us together to share some ideas. He managed to do so humanly and digitally, and led us there by his own example as a sharing open author. Terry has wrangled writing before. […]

The Legacy

I’m going to use my final Ontario Extend 9x9x25 post space to try to drum up some interest in a legacy project. Ontario post secondary institutions all have access to Pressbooks EDU sites. I think we should use one to make a Greatest Hits “album”. As of this writing, the 9x9x25 activities have generated 339 blog posts from 44 different blogs. That is 7.7 each. Which either means that lots of people made it at least close to the end, […]

The Value of Field Trips in Higher Ed.

This is my 8th post for 9x9x25. On Thursday, I went with Community and Justice Service (CJSP) students on a field trip to Beaver Creek Institution – a minimum and medium security correctional facility in Gravenhurst, ON. Every year, the CJSP coordinator organized three visits for different correctional facilities in Ontario so students in the program are able to see one division of the correctional field these students can enter into after graduation. The students visit a minimum security adventure […]

Wiki as a tool for exploration and thinking

A wiki is a tool for the capture, extension, and dissemination of community knowledge.- Mike Caulfield Wiki is one of those things that has been in and out of popularity it seems since my teacher training. I can remember the first class I had where we discussed and used a wiki. Then again in grad school we set up and used a number of different wikis (no I can’t show them off anymore, thanks Wikispaces). Another ed developer used either […]

Accessibility and Inclusion

It is hard to believe that there is only one more week to the 9x9x25 blog challenge. I have read many great posts and learned a lot from this generous community of educators and bloggers. This week I am going to address something that is near and dear to my pedagogy and practice which is accessibility and inclusion. Inspired by CogDog’s great post on image descriptions, I thought it was time to write a bit on what I think of […]

Doing/Making Dailies

Someone has to make the donuts dailies every day, and few do it better than Terry The Baker Greene (who does it with sauce). This is close to Terry’s method: Or as he 9x9x25-ed: If I were asked to name the top 2 things that have helped me to not only develop and hone my abilities as an educational technologist, but also lead me down rabbit holes that have crafted my attitudes and values and love for this whole ed-tech […]

Quick Reflection – Test Tube Teaching

Not my 9x9x25 post this week, but I just read Test Tube Teaching by Prof Mel, and was about to comment when I thought, ‘hey, I can just blog a quick reflection and hopefully it’ll ping back’. Honestly, I’ve been frustrated with blog commenting systems for a while now. Some require login, some eat my comments, so here…I’m reclaiming commenting. It sounds like Prof Mel has been having success with the use of low stakes quizzing in a Psychology course. […]
