Post Title: Digging Diigo ...
By cyeager, Feed Name: CMC11
Preview: for bookmarking and discussion ~ we have a group site @ CDL_CMC11 for Diigo and one can use it as a bookmarking service (offline, in a cloud to save precious hard drive space) as well as a discussion space. In the most recent time period a long term MOOC participant and myself are the only ones using it. What a shame as it really is a great option for learning and then going back to see what ....

Post Title: Creative Resolutions
By Jon Bunch, Feed Name: Jon Bunch
Preview: #cmc11From my experiences in the workplace there has been a noticeable difference between people that just use typical troubleshooting or problem solving techniques to solve a variety of issues compared to those who tend to think outside the box and tackle the problem from a different approach. Instead of waiting for a creative idea to happen, they tend to take a standardized approach to solve ....

By wildmntnhoney, Feed Name: Can the Internet Produce Utopian Worlds?
Preview: They are 5, 6, 7, 8 years old.

Title: Personal learning enviroments
Preview: Those are really wonderful contemplations.I've personally been really unhappy with public school (we're in NY) in recent years. The new Core Curriculum Standards coupled with consistently reduced resources for schools has resulted in some really nasty realities for kids. For example, my son is in K and the new standards require him to spell 100 words, name 6 different vertices, and .......

Title: This isn't summer camp
Preview: If the majority of online content creation is done by people likely unfamiliar with any learning theory (as happens where I work) then the working formula is bound to be: more flash = deeper learning. It would be very nice if this turned out to be true for those who support media as key to the learner's brain but really it doesn't have to be true as long as people believe it (and .......

Title: Diigo: bookmarking & much more
Preview: There are so many ways to harvest, save, share, archive, organize links,etc ~ aka bookmarking. I've been using Diigo increasingly with MOOCs, although not exclusively. In particular, I particularly appreciate the feature for highlighting and annotating actual pages. I have even used it for entire books at the Gutenberg Project. Using comment feature as forum to discuss shared works is .......

Title: Re: Utopian Justice
Preview: Justice is a very good term here--and maybe more powerful than the more polite "autonomy", self-respect or even "agency." Many of the students at our small community college seem numb and helpless from a life where no one ever acknowledged them, leaving them essentially voiceless. Robbing people of being themselves is an awful injustice but as you say is not always done with intention. I wonder ....

Title: Re: Utopian Justice
Preview: I do a lot of work in the field of Family Court, including the inner workings of CPS, in NY. Something I've come to realize is that justice can only be acquired when one has agency; without agency, there is little sense of self-worth; without self-worth there is no confidence to do the work that needs doing to see justice. That's exactly the problem with many people who are involved in ....

Title: Re: Diigo: bookmarking & much more
Preview: Ahhh, guilty as charged!  I have not been using the annotation feature of recent bookmarking.  I do try to use descriptive tags as best I can ... and yet, I am not using Diigo to its best advantage. One sidenote for thse who see no point to twitter usage ... I often find great resources and do not have the time to focus on reading them, I send the tweet to myself and then, bookmark to ....
