Connected Learning and 21st Century English Teacher Education

Much of the current rhetoric about technology and education relates to devices and software programs — what types schools should purchase, how much money districts should spend on them, how they should be integrated into classroom learning, and what return on investment they should produce. The implicit message communicated by this rhetoric is that technology transforms education through the medium of specific tools — that these tools are what structure and produce powerful teaching and learning. Give teachers and students […]

Postcard doodles

It’s been a busy month, and inevitably I’ve not done everything I planned to. But one thing that I have done over the last couple of weeks is to start doing my daily doodles on postcards. Of course, because I sometimes find times to doodle at work and other times at home, I only have half my stack here. But here’s some of the ones I like from this month – now safely stashed away to send in the future.

Final Reflections: Networked Narratives from Out Here in the Wild Open

The second iteration of Networked Narratives has been over for at least a few weeks now, and I’ve had a version of this reflection sort of sitting here in my blog draft bin. I’ve watched Alan Levine, one of the instructors, post his reflection yesterday from a teacher perspective (which was insightful to peruse). I’ve read through and enjoyed Wendy Taleo‘s reflection and presentation she gave about a project in Networked Narratives that we launched. I’ve skimmed through some of […]

My #Netnarr Reflection

It’s been longer than it should have been since my Networked Narratives class at Kean University wrapped up, but as I did ask my students for a final final reflection, I turn the assignment about on me. For anyone not following along (I’d round that up to everyone); this is the second year I taught the class. Last year, I co-taught with Mia Zamora, who was on site with the class in New Jersey. I beamed in remotely from home […]

Time to Say Goodbye

me.Well netnarr, it's been a really fun semester. I've been so excited to relive the Digital Alchemy and Networked Narratives experience with a new group of students, and I cannot believe that May has come so quickly. It's been simultaneously a very long and a very short semester-- although I can look back and remember the first week, it also feels as if January were years ago. We've experienced a lot this semester and played with a variety of digital […]

What I Learned in Net Nar Is!!

In all honesty, I    struggled so much throughout the Network Narrative course. Being a digital alchemist is hard when you come into something  just to find out you know little -to nothing about the digital world you thought you were so familiar with. I    remember my first day of class I    was so overwhelmed when I    came in to find not a physical professor, but a screen. This was the first course in fours years of attending Kean University, that […]

Week 10 – Games As A Story, A Story As Games.Backstorying a Classic Computer/Arcade/Console Game

 The storyline starts here: It’s a rainy afternoon in Brooklyn, New York. Adam Park is at his sentencing. He stand before the judge after pleading guilty to verbal abuse and psychological manipulation. These are offenses the city has really cracked down on, because we all know New Yorkers speak recklessly. Eager to prove a point and make an example out of Park, the judge mercilessly sentences him to three years of silence, with GIFs and memes as his only means of […]

Week 11 -Digital Redlining

I   knew that redlining existed but I never knew that there was a name for it. I    found this weeks discoveries fascinating. As I  am the Vice President for the Black Student Union on campus, I    find redlining to be an issue that excites me to learn about. The technology I    picked to focus on this week were traffic cameras in specific areas in New Jersey. I learned that in more urban areas, the amount of traffic cams, including speed […]
