@Chrisaldrich I come at it usually somewhere between Spiros’ Cognitive Flexibility Theory and post-modern theories of intertextuality.

Been trying to capture that “uniqueness” of the type of thinkers who cuts across our spaces. We should collaborate on a project sometime.

Equity and Digital Literacies | New Haven Independent (New Haven Independent)

Even the best of us can make security mistakes. Here @amriad and I present on digital equity and I leave the temporary wifi account credentials on the board. Did not think about audience members and journalists taking pictures and live tweeting.

I love the Wild West of badging. Let communities establish their own credentialing pathways around the values of learning they share.

For businesses and employability these credentials will be linked to observable skills. It’s what they value.

By headless LMS I mean the web. I want students to own their domain and own their data. Focus more on presence than portfolios really. The system becomes the api driven community that lives on top.

We keep the mark up as simple as possible to help parse evidence and let machine learning do much of the work in many fields. Writing, math, etc. We are talking patterns that machines will always be better at.

Let humans focus on the feedback that drive growth and build systems that can track that growth.

In the end a credential is just an Authority saying you have the skills to accomplish something. It is a dichotomous measure. Even if it is awarded on a range of scores in a rubric. You either have it or you don’t.

What badges do now is allow that evidence and criteria to explicitly linked. (I know folks hate the baggage of the , but using “credential” is such a PITA on the backend, documentation, and auth process I shy away… I will argue definitions with academics over engineers any day)

Outlines expectations around data, privacy and behavior. For the first time ever in my classes it now includes a no notification and a no driving section.

One of my major #indieweb goals it to have a class website, a static professional group page, and a syllabus template done for the IndieWeb Summit.

I feel like I made it pretty far tonight. If you want to check out the code or help out. Here it is on @glitch!/join/d3fbbc5e-dbc3-419b-87c6-eda771af0238

Got a ways to go, but at its essence this the layout I want. I will alternate colors of each section and then use a grid system to build this in CSS Grid:

With time I should be able to strip everything away, knock over somebody else’s blocks and build the castle I want.

Really excited about CSS Grid. So much more conceptually easy to grasp than floats, displays, etc. So much lighter and eventually easier than Bootstrap.
