    Here are my (fragmentary, subjective) notes from the session, sans links:

    Pedagogy Session 1
    Great Lakes THATCamp

    problem: Facebook desires vs Blackboard reality–

    –wordpress blogs for teaching–buddypress as a social network creates profiles
    –UMW blogs
    –Notre Dame course on Ireland: all use the same blog–required posts & comments but not graded (honor system). Class all tweet Ireland links w/ one acct
    –Honors World History–also one blog. Can post questions, answer discussion questions, create exam questions
    –Use of Flickr photostream in Enviro class–students post a photo and blog about it. Also mapping.
    –Anthropology class: Google spread sheet–students add definitions, sources, relations. Studies student responses: they either LOVE or HATE this.
    –Continuing blog from year to year
    –itunes U

    Publicity vs privacy: Ways to encourage public voices and protect privacy (fear of failure, being an emergent writer)–protected servers, Blogger set for invitation only, use of pseudonyms, first names. Imp to prepare students for public discourse. Importance of public teaching. Encouraging students to promote their work through competition–how to make their work viral. Even grad students are afraid that they will make theoretical errors and not be able to get a job 5 yrs from now… Students should be empowered to choose publicity or privacy. Public writing usually improves writing.

    Other ideas:
    Thin vs thick tweet, latter w/ multiple layers–eg, link w/ comments about
    Wikipedia ambassadors
    screencasting feedback to students w/ paper as screen image. Students think about differences in written/screened feedback.
    students get overwhelmed with options–uses Posterous because its simpler–“training wheels for blogging”

    Has anybody read “A New Culture of Learning: Cultivating the Imagination for a World of Constant Change” book by Douglas Thomas and John Seely Brown?

    I just started reading this book and found it quite fascinating.
