@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..

I think something magical happens when students can finish this sentence, "My url is" 100% believe the best thing schools could do to up digital skills is just provide every student with a Domain of One's Own

Students like shaping their truth.

This is super nerdy, my apologies, but I tried CSS sub grid for layout and card design....#nctechat

@CinqSarah I never use social media or require it with students. Not fair for me to say you must give up all your privacy to complete class. We can build our own networks. Check out the web ring.

Yes Google Sites is awful way to build a website if you want to teach children how to build websites. I been digging on Ursula Franklin and the idea of holistic and prescriptive tech

I start with HTML because I am a teacher and it's one file. Can read it on Apple's latest tablet or etch into a stone tablet same thing. We spent last thirty years not teaching students to write the web.

When "web 2.0" beame the buzzword du juor everyone be like, "Now nobody needs to know code to build websites...." We should have said, "Oh snap...Now everyone needs to know code.

@tomliamlynch I see three major pathways into coding and tech: video games, videography, and building websites. I am a bit bullish on this HTML thing, seems to have staying power while the latest app is gone tomorrow

Here is a bunch of fun stuff to https://glitch.com/@jgmac1106/fun-stuff-to-teach-the-web CSS poetry, fake facebook pages, movie posters. Easy to find a pedagogical goal and teach HTML. Funny how few high school classrooms teach children to actually write the web.
