@Downes did not see my toots aggregated into the Activity stream (perhaps good in this case;) -- but would be nice to pull all activity into that spot eventually

@Downes will Mastadon hashtags aggregate on the el30 Activity Center feed?

The tag looks thin here -- so if you have not read/recently re-read Tools of Conviviality or Deschooling Society or have never heard Illich speak on recording, I suggest David Tinapple's curated site: davidtinapple.com/illich/

I agree with much of Learning Machine's take on Public Blockchains as tools/systems/networks/praxis for increasing self sovereignty edtechdigest.com/2018/08/21/un

*Finally* finished writing! I promised to share so here it is.


Funny how I'm more excited to share with people "out there" than to submit to my prof. (Should go without saying that your feedback means more). 😉​

Anyway, this is 1/2 in my "summer papers that must be written" collection. It is about the problems with big prizes (Global Learning XPRIZE), big ed tech and, well, just big.

Comments good, bad and ugly always welcome.

@Downes what happened to CCK sites or am I missing something? Was referencing Connectivism and wanted to link to CCK11 and the link was no good. Have not checked wayback....if that would work....

@Downes Autopsy of a Failed Holacracy....post in OLDaily reminded me at once of Etienne WG work on Learning in Landscapes.... wenger-trayner.com/resources/p and perhaps even more so Zuboff's meaningful work in the domain -- In the Age of The Smart Machine (really all of her work) shoshanazuboff.com/new/books/

@dajbelshaw@social.coop @Downes , all -- looking for a list of or suggestions on Universities accepting different pathways for admissions (different from trad transcripts....)

Had reason to revisit the excellent work of Refugee Openware row3d.org/ today -- incredible

Looking over projects like HAHAAcademy and phase two haha.academy/#top -- reaffirm for me that what we need to support is the development of educational ecologies that empower kids to freely learn, assess and accredit their knowledge.... Illich's learning webs davidtinapple.com/illich/1970_

@mayel thank you for following -- HAHA Academy looks excellent at first glance -- have you heard of Learning Machine learningmachine.com/ ? Their emphasis on working toward Self Sovereign identity on the Blockchain might support your phase four work....

Happy to be trying out, Mastadon -- Thank you to @dajbelshaw@social.coop and more recently @Downes for piquing my interest
