Would The Real ‘Alec Couros’ Please Stand Up?

Last September, I wrote a post about how scammers had been using my photos to lure women into online, romantic relationships for the purpose of ‘borrowing’ or extorting money. Since that time, the scams have continued. I get, on average, one new report a day from women (and occasionally men) who have been tricked, or nearly tricked, into sending money.…

Education and Autism

It’s World Autism Awareness Day.

Autism and pervasive developmental disorder is a personal part of my life because one of my nephews, a lovely boy named Henry, was diagnosed with autism when he was five. I have to admit when he was a toddler I only saw him a few times because we lived far away, but I no sign of any disorder at that time.…

What I’m Learning: MindMup is the Web 3.0 version of Bubbl.Us (Mindmapping)

Until today, I didn’t have a better/easier mind mapping platform than Bubbl.us, which has been around since 2007 (and has stayed mostly unchanged). Now I have MindMup, which is both better and just as easy. Really great integration with Google Drive too!…

What I’m Reading: Digital Badges for PD

As I am working on something very similar right now for teachers and leaders in DPS, I thought this post was a wonderful introduction to the concept. It also provides a great template in Google Drawings to get started with creating the visual side of the badge.…

Culture and Community in my Classroom

In January I signed up for BLOG-A-MONTH where I get to read some great blogs from inspiring educators, and I get to write a lil’ something too and have it read by the hard-working, inspiring members of the group.  It keeps my blog writing skills honed and also provides me with the motivation for the educational reflection that I have sought on this sabbatical abroad.

Rhizo-Rhetoric and the Problems of Unity and Multiplicity #rhizo14

Let’s assume, then, that writing a work of some kind—I’ll stop short of calling it a book—about Rhizo14 calls for a different kind of rhetoric, a rhizo-rhetoric. What would such a rhizo-rhetoric look like? That’s a great question for me, and I’m hoping that the Rhizo14 community will help articulate some answers to the question, but I still want to create some pockets of resonance and sound some… Continue reading
