Dispatching The Patchbook

by

🙂
Patches the cat almost did me in. We’ve been conceptualizing our Open Faculty Development Textbook for a few months now and were searching for a foundational idea to build the project around. The other day, on a not-directly-related search, I was trying to find an image for a badge or patch for faculty to wear once […]

Nelson & Imagination

by

When I was a little girl, nap time was a crucial part of the early school experience. Little children, after all, needed their rest. On one occasion, however, a friend and I were right in the middle of building an amusement park with blocks. We moved our small hands as delicately, but swiftly, as possible, […]

Nelson part 2: of teachers and curricula

by

In the time between writing Computer Lib/Dream Machines in 1974 and being interviewed by Gardner Campbell in 2014, Ted Nelson seems to have become a bit more sympathetic to teachers (or at least a bit less inclined to attack them/us directly).   In 1974, he presents teachers as holding considerable power in, and power to shape […]

Motivation

traveler on path
Whoops, time got away from me this week. So, I won’t be doing justice to this week’s content. I listened to the interview but didn’t really delve into the reading. The speaker this week rubbed me the wrong way, which always makes it a bit harder to get something out of a talk. Or makes […]

OL17: Engelbart and Augmenting Human Intellect

by

Engelbart and Augmenting Human Intellect
Engelbart and Augmenting Human Intellect In 1962, Douglas C. Engelbart released his essay “Augmenting Human Intellect: A Conceptual Framework.”  I haven’t read the complete paper, just a document with excerpts prepared by Gardner Campbell for #OpenLearning17.  Based on the excerpts, it’s a good one. As a young man, driven by the desire to do something […]
