Using a Pretty Pen and Pencil as a Lever and My Mind as a Fulcrum to the Text: Theoria (thinking), Poiesis (making), & Praxis (Doing)

Kevin Hodgson, @dogtrax, recently cited Austin Kleon’s newish book, Reading with a Pencil, in the tweet below.   Reading with a Pencil https://t.co/nAvUhUgGSQ #clmooc #marginalsyllabus (this is a next explorations of how to own a book by writing in the book) @telliowkuwp pic.twitter.com/GphpKmmtOa — KevinHodgson (@dogtrax) February 10, 2019 I responded with my own tweet and scanned sample page where I read with a pencil (and pen and highlighter and marker).   @grammasheri @EatcherVeggies @tutormentorteam #clmooc Here’s a sample of […]

Teachers as First Responders with Guns

No Title No Description This is where we are in some states.  My Kentucky legislature is not quite here yet, but they are edging the Overton window toward all guns, all the time, and everywhere.  There is a bill being considered now that would allow conceal carry without a permit anywhere it is now allowed with a permit.  Next step is to allow conceal carry everywhere: bars, churches, and my classroom.  That is when I quit.  When I read this […]

Epiphany | Apopheny | Whatev-eny

I was not happy with my work, my making, my…doing of late. And then Bob Ross takes a ‘deliberate accident’ and makes it into a happy accident when he prophesizes, “We don’t make mistakes. We have happy accidents.” Serendips, an accident in my brain, a happy pen stroke. Let’s have a happy accident, an epiphany apopheny. The source of this river of sublime generosity is the kleckograph below here and from Simon Ensor‘s link here: I “blot” a poem from […]

Alchemy Everywhere Via Netnarr Transmogrification

So much alchemy here if, by alchemy, we mean transformation/translation. Daniel Bassill translated his own year in the form of a clock. Each hour represents a month. The tool he uses for his alchemical reflection on his year blogging is CMap. I transformed it in numerous ways below.   I am transforming his image into a short video, a viewer’s “cut”.     I made some notes on the back of the envelope he sent that held a thank you […]

Plan Yr Wrk, Wrk Yr Plan

I tell my students about the best piece of advice I ever got when my wife and I were running our chimney sweeping business. I tell them it made us a lot of money. I tell them we paid for our farm and home with this piece of advice. Now they’re attending. And what was that advice? The owner of Copperfield Chimney Supply, Bob Daniels (Sooty Bob to everybody in the business) shared this piece of advice in a six-cassette […]

Raising the Signal to Noise Ratio: A Digital Feldgang

Venkatesh Rao called it a ‘frankenstack’.  He defined it as, An assemblage of information technologies duct-taped together with a mess of protocols, and forming what philosophers call a rhizomatic structure. Everybody has his or her own frankenstack, so which one am I referring to ?  The #Digciz. The Storify embedded below arises directly from the #4wordstory hashtag and indirectly from the gathering of folks into #digciz ,part of the frankenstack rhizome.  And the common plaint is one shared by @teachercreates (Emily […]

Slacking Is Not a Dirty Word

This morning I came across this post in Brainpickings apropos of Labor Day to come and May Day just passed. Leisure, the Basis of Culture: An Obscure German Philosopher’s Timely 1948 Manifesto for Reclaiming Our Human Dignity in a Culture of Workaholism I stripped out the relevant links using LinkGrabber and put them into Dropbox’s Papers. Since Papers doesn’t provide an embed (unlike its now open-source predecessor Hackpad did) I had to save it into Google Docs and get an […]

An Invocation to “Come & Play”

Simon’s latest ramble ends with the invitation, “Come and play.”  Don’t mind if I do. I remixed his long read into a video using the very interesting new browser tool, Lumen5. Lumen5 allows you to ‘translate’ any web post into a multimedia production.  Here is my translation of Simon’s post. It feels a bit like a sliver to a much sharper and larger shard that is the original, but I got a good sense for this new tool and more […]
