FYI, I don't usually bring much of my personal stuff on G+, but tomorrow might be the day I become a dad for the first time. Expect delays in communication.

So funny you'd post this yesterday. I've been working on a Pope Francis project for the last 36 hours. :-)

#YikYak is creating quite a dilemma on college campuses. Letting it run leads to abuse, geofencing it is inefficient and makes freedom advocates tear their shirt off.
Yik Yak, a social media app that serves as a local bulletin board, has proved popular especially on college campuses, but the cover of anonymity it offers allows for some unfettered nastiness.

It's a shame because YikYak can be a lot of fun. When I go to a new location I will check out YikYak  as a way to find out what people are saying (NYC is a great place to use the app) but I can certainly see how on a campus that it could be an administrative nightmare.

This is what a decade of thoughtful open teaching looks like. +Laura Gibbs 
 
The UnTextbook as a Path to Open Pedagogy | NextThought

+Laura Gibbs has created a remarkable thing with her UnTextbook product. In my view, the most important aspect of the UnTextbook is the way it actually shapes open pedagogy in Laura's course. It promotes agency, production, and connectivity.

Laura Gibbs' UnTextbook is a great example of how open content can drive open pedagogy by promoting agency, production, and connectivity.

Something to consider if you own a website/blog/service. #disclosure  #data #trust
 
New post on e-Literate

In the wake of the Pearson social media monitoring controversy, edubloggers like Audrey Watters and D’arcy Norman have announced their policies regarding code that can potentially track users on their blogs. This is a good idea, so we are following their example.

We use Google Analytics and WordPress analytics on both e-Literate and e-Literate TV. The main reason we do so is that we believe the information these packages provide help us create more useful content. Even after a decade of blogging, we are still surprised sometimes by which posts earn your attention and which ones don’t. We look at our analytics results fairly regularly to see what we can learn about writing more content that you find to be worth your time. This is by no means the only or even the main way that we decide what we will write, but we think of it as one of relatively few clues we have to understand to which posts and topics will have the most value to you. We do not run ads and have no intention of doing so in the future. In the case of e-Literate TV, where the content is expensive to make, we may also use information regarding the number of viewers of the episodes in the future to demonstrate to sponsors that our content is having an impact. We make no effort to track individuals and, in fact, have always had a policy of letting our readers comment on posts without registering on the site. But Google in particular is likely making more extensive use of the usage data that they gather.
