Privacy & Research Guidelines - The #WalkMyWorld Project

These community guidelines were adapted from Ito (2014). CC 2.0. Community Guidelines for Research Activity. which were in turned taken from a study of the open course, Rhizo 14.

This was taken from somewhere else. Folks have done good thinking around syllabi and statements of open. Don't reinvent the wheel

This may leave you with a few questions: What about privacy? What does "public" and "in the open" mean? What will you do with my data?

Open is not private, private is not open. You can engage in and still be private

This includes Public posts, comments, and artifacts shared on sites, apps and platforms such as Twitter, G+, blogs, Facebook, and Zeega:

Wow Google+ gone. Zeega...gone....Twitter selling third party data and ads...See why privacy and open shoudl begin with students owning theirt data. This is why makes sense

Online communication, such as tweets, blog posts, and comments are generally out in the open and technically β€œpublic” and available for researchers to analyze and quote. Internet researchers have, however, documented how a particular communication may be technically public but viewed by the individual who posted it as meant for a more limited or private context.

Doing what is legal and what is right is not the same thing. Yes I could use this data to my heart content or can I? Is requiring students to use a social network silo truly open pedagogy? Making them allow someone to sell their data?

Participants in may also be contacted and recruited to participate in surveys and interviews for specific research studies. In these cases, it will be incumbent upon the researcher to offer a clear explanation of the consent and privacy procedures, how the data will be used, and what benefit the research will provide to the individual and the community. The researcher should also consider offering interviewees the opportunity to review transcripts and quotes.

IRB still matters when doing OER research

Think places like and provide a model, we don't need massive amounts of funding just fundamental focus on learner contributing knowledge in production based ways with local networks contributing to the larger goal

@bonstewart your talk is the reason why I am trying to capture. Been doing some case study analysis of and ... Thinking we need to fork cognitive apprenticeship into agentive apprenticeship.

Returning to the book so close to being done...and I want to reformulate a central thesis, we used knowledge brokering as both a theortical lens and an operation tool when comparing the three case studies of , , and except the term makes me throw up in my mouth a bit, not like everywher just a bit of bile

Then @anna_phd and @dogtrax get to pick the next @ncte poet. Serious I would throw together a quick 4-7 week pop up MOOC to revitalize the issue...we also turned from poetry after Haas became bc we had so many other disciplines join. Get back to roots

Greg McVerry

By the time we got to Hass it evolved into and we had hundreds of teachers participating in this unofficial @ncte project from across the globe. We should start up the Digital Laurette project again.

Twitter also sells your privacy. I rely pretty much on students who can answer the question, "My url is...." but many courses organize on twitter just to name a few.

Talking why can't we make our research more multimodal @vconnecting research. Here is one example I did...all the storify links gone:

@dogtrax if I go with 50/50 approach to my website andlet Known handle social stream I can do stuff like this: without the subdomain. Notice all the broken links from missing
