I think the more we root the labor in the professorship and get it directly to the Commons with the fewest intermediaries possible is best. #Apereo20
Hey #clmooc the lurking discussion continues with some of the #IndieWeb building blocks used to support and encourage lurking https://
#mb #edtechchat There was value in social media. it did bring publishing to the masses.
Having a blog or website takes work... it reflects privilege. Literacy always has. Technology does not change that.
As educators, we took the wrong lesson from Web 2.0. It wasn't, "Ohh wow now nobody needs to know HTML!" It should have been, "Oh shit...now everyone needs to know HTML"
We are paying for this ignorance. We need to do what teachers have always done since time eternal. Help to build our communities.
The web is no different. Don't play one platform to rule them all. That got us in this mess.
Fight for open standards and protocols. Encourage the Commons, most importantly just be able to answer the question, "My url is..."
You can never build a village when somebody else owns all the land.
This is what I am exploring.
For academics in our spaces whose #GoOpen, #oer, #digped, #DOO, philosophies align with #indieweb principles would the tools like MicroPub and MicroSub and standards like webmentions not only make tracking the spread of our stuff, but more importantly encouraging the spread and spirit, without recreating another silo. Regardless of how open?
The OER Commons tools look promising and we would need stuff like that for most educators but I was trying to figure out what a DIY approach could look like as well.
Interoperability does have a legacy cost but if we put effort into our metadata and standards tools can be built like the oer commons resource builder and Google Docs importer to make easier on everyday people.
We can get there I am commenting on the #oer18 feed from my own website using #indieweb tools.
I get to own my data and decide where to share it.
