If you are attending the NMC 2017 Summer Conference in Boston, I have a media/fake factoid challenge for you. By taking it on you can finally solve a vexing (what I believe is a) chimerical myth. And you can win CASH money. I have been chasing down this media myth since ...

This is the end, though not the end at all, and we have a little informal rule about not using terminating language, of the story of Networked Narratives, a course, and much more than a course. I start here, standing quietly in the dark, in a closet-like room adjacent to ...

OH NOES NOT DEFINITIONS! Fear not, it's not happening. But today during the blog-star-studded-most-of-them-self-deprecating hangout on "Open Pedagogy Open Discussion #YearOfOpen" (see the resource doc too) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gmPmZEhy3Lc Mike Caulfield made an interesting comment about openness and the metaphor of "permeability" which raises my Geology sensors (Maybe 5 years of undergraduate and 6 in ...

I've had loose shoe laces all my life. For a number of years I never even tied my tennis shoes, wearing them like slippers. I lost count how many friends. stranges would make a point to ask, "Did you know your shoes are untied?" I have a memory as a kid, ...

There was absolutely no reason to do this. I blame the iTunes shuffle which spun me through Carly Simon. I was working away on other stuff, thinking in the back of my mind about all the friends and colleagues getting ready to wake up for the first day of OERR17. Boom. Nobody ...

Twas fitting to return these past three days to Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops BC, invited by Brian Lamb to spend some quick time with people and place I was 5 months at in 2014-2015 as an Open Learning Fellow (or Fella). It's a Brian story that the idea for SPLOTs ...

File this as another lesson in being part of the Networked Narratives class -- writing something personal is one thing, but reading it out loud another, and the third (still on my list) yet beyond that. This again like we are finding this course, is something that happens when we ...

This is somewhat for Alex, who asked for an example on how to do the 3 sound remix assignment for Networked Narratives. He's spinning his audio wheels, which I said would likely happen. DONT PANIC! We asked students to record and share three sounds of their morning routine, representing their preparation, ...
