My quick thoughts, back stage, and rants as I try to Teach kids about the Web while learning how to help others build a better Web.

This is a recent IES proposal we put in to help students : http://jgregorymcverry.com/questiontheweb.html

We have put in millions of dollars grants from 25K to 1.4 million to bring to k12 schools. Any school can get involved and it is a tiny budget hit when you think about the return in digital learning and data. reach out

@WillTeachEng They will keep us in if we try to recreate a battle between the Stans and the VSCO, best thing we could do is create a network of schools and students...Not schoolifying their space but building "our space" together.

Watch out for those pesky books too....don't want kids developing elbow or eye strain issues....best way to handle privacy and notifications is teach kids to build their own platform so you never are the product.

never know how truth gets shaped online until you shape your own, then we model how we make connective pathways to learning. I keep all my bookmarks https://quickthoughts.jgregorymcverry.com/content/bookmarkedpages/ blog through drafts: https://quickthoughts.jgregorymcverry.com/content/posts/ and then turn to articles

@DigLitELA thx making fun remixable websites is "My supper dish, my succotash wish"

Greg McVerry

At same time we can't expect everyone to hand roll websites. Why I dig platforms like @microdotblog work out of box but give you full extensibility with open APIs and protocols. Its the "Othello method" ...minutes to learn, lifetime to matter.

@CinqSarah So true! This is why we must be critical. Is it fair for your teacher to make you hand off data to a third party advertising company (prolly illegal too...shhh). Also why we must discuss how notifications work. how toxic they are

@JoriKrulder I see it in I teach New Literacies: Digital Tech and Tools for Lifelong Learning. About a third of the class doesn't have access to a laptop. I sign out carts like K12 teachers everywhere..
