Here is the latest in my #WTFeconomy  series of posts on Medium. (Earlier posts include The WTF Economy (https://medium.com/the-wtf-economy/the-wtf-economy-a3bd5f52ef00) and Networks and the Nature of the Firm (https://medium.com/the-wtf-economy/networks-and-the-nature-of-the-firm-28790b6afdcc). Still to come: These Are The Days of Miracles and Wonders, The Augmented Worker, and more.) These articles are exploring technology and the future of work, and are leading up to an event in November called the Next:Economy Summit (http://conferences.oreilly.com/next-economy)

When students practice metacognition, the act of thinking about their thinking helps them make greater sense of their life experiences and start achieving at higher levels.

Hm. OK, point taken. A hierarchy among "elites" is still a hierarchy.

YOUR CLASSROOM IS GONE.
Well, for some of us, maybe not just yet, ha ha...

If you're a face-to-face educator considering (or already immersed in) blended learning, I will add a YOUR CLASSROOM IS GOING...GOING... component for you to think about when viewing +Michelle Pacansky-Brock's brief 4-1/2 minute video. Even with regular in-person class meetings, the technology is there. The social learning expectations may also be there.

Very nice video here from +Michelle Pacansky-Brock for people getting ready to teach online. I especially like the part at the end about YOUR CLASSROOM IS GONE... which to me feels great: you can be connected, student-center, no walls, etc., just like Michelle says and also shows with some well-chosen graphics. Very nice! This is the perfect antidote to the Faculty Focus article I shared here which seemed to neglect that fundamental shift, assuming that somehow teaching online was like a classroom (just without the classroom...).

The "me" you see in class
Introduction
If you are a CSUMB student in my class, you have the right person. Please do add me to an appropriate Circle. (Red "add" button under my profile image.)

If you are CSUMB faculty or staff, yeah, it's me. +Kevin Cahill snapped that fine photo you're looking at. But the more interesting conversations about education and other topics will be with my "public" non-edu Google presence. (Link below.)

If you are anyone else, you might have the right person. I tend to have course-based interactions here with my First Year Seminar (Tech & Society) students. Some posts will be Public, others internal to the class. If you want full conversations about teaching & learning, faculty life, sci-fi, or other topics, you may prefer to follow my "outside" G+ profile:
