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.

Nine years ago we did our @Uconn new research in East Hartford School District giving classroom teachers laptop carts and instruction in Internet Reciprocal Teaching...https://www.ctnewsjunkie.com/archives/entry/20200713_despite_community_efforts_some_students_are_sti... we could have fixed this

Voice > accessibility tool, along with touch, it is the preferred input UI for many students. Teach them to install and use voice readers to aid internet research, use voice search, teach them to write accessible HTML

Never mind found it!!! https://www.zotero.org/groups/8831/research-collaborative? check it out @ryanrish @jacobmcjacob the Vygotsky study group collaborative we facilitated a decade ago.

@elpatronhimself Then just blog as you research, I have landed on a quick social stream, a long fom wiki and a place for my identity. It's my quickthoughts, with my long thoughts, and me stuck in the middle.

If you want to fix online learning for BIPOC and students you need A: BIPOC students and teachers. and B: Faculty that teach.

Public research universities have neither of those things.

"DoEd should select and fund three to five public research universities as β€œDigital Hubs.”...public research universities where faculty don't teach and students are all white....https://www.politico.com/news/agenda/2020/06/25/the-smart-way-to-improve-online-learning-338664

See true academics know there is only room for 2-3 gatekeepers at top of each field. To climb to a top spot and get all the research dollars and never have to deal with pesky things like students you will need a PhD

Where does the screenshot of when I got secretly recorded and then relentessly attacked by right wing groups fit in the tenure file?

Funny thing I am so legit proud of the student for his cunning and activisim. I told Fox News when a reporter emailed me that the class was about networking and political activism.

I let them know how proud I was of the student for getting me to consent to record "to help him study" and then turn it into fuel for an online harrassment attack (he didn't really know what would happen) ..which I called "political activism."

Same time I am proud. I want political activism no matter student beliefs....within reason. Trump crosses the Racism and rape culture lines. I have no problem respecting my students right to be wrong if they believe otherwise.

Luckily the story didn't get national steam. Fox never ran it. Maybe because I believe in my students. Wanting to get involved in governmentand politics is great.

Still I think my pride watered down hopes for a juicy story. No national news story. Just a few weeks of internet trolls pinging every where I lived online and flooding inboxes with nonsense.

I didn't make much hay. Didn't have tenure at the time...but now I kinda think it belongs in the file. Research or Teaching?

@Karis_M_Jones I don't know standard musical notation, I do research using tablature

Just think about travel included in each of these grants, 10Ks of dollars and our kids went into covid-19 disconnected and without devices. We need to recenter educational and research in marginalized communities.
