Hack Education

Un-Annotated

I have added a script to my websites today that will block annotations – namely those from Genius and those from Hypothes.is.

Higher Education in the Disinformation Age

This was what I said this evening at a panel at the University of Mary Washington as part of its Presidential Inauguration Week. The panel was titled "Higher Education in the Disinformation Age: Can America's public liberal arts universities restore critical thinking and civility in public discourse?"

Why 'A Domain of One's Own' Matters (For the Future of Knowledge)

These remarks were given at Coventry University as part of my visiting fellowship at the Disruptive Media Learning Lab

The Top Ed-Tech Trends (Aren't 'Tech')

This talk was presented at Coventry University as part of my visiting fellowship at the Disruptive Media Learning Lab

Every year since 2010, I’ve undertaken a fairly massive project in which I’ve reviewed the previous twelve months’ education and technology news in order to write ten articles covering “the top ed-tech trends.” This is how I spend my November and December – researching and writing a series that usually tops out at about 75,000 words – which I didn’t realize until print copies were made for my visit here is about 240 pages.
