Here to teach CRDM 704, aka Technologies and Pedagogies in Communication Arts, a graduate class at NC State University. Interested in teaching with technologies across electrified and analog mediums and the pedagogies we adapt to best do so. Sometimes involved with discussions of "digital pedagogy" which grow out of digital humanities circles.

Those of you especially interested in our later course section on "The Politics of Pedagogy" may want to check out the discussion series this fall over at HASTAC:

Fixing EdTech from the inside out

Interesting piece from an edtech industry perspective (coincidentally, written by the cofounder of Known) about its problems and potential ways forward.

[FYI, this is a Known "status update" instead of a "post". The status update basically just puts up content from a text box. A "post" seems more appropriate for annotated links you'd want to call out with a title.]

How Hands-On Technology is Enhancing the Classroom Experience | EdTech Magazine http://www.edtechmagazine.com/higher/article/2015/08/hands-technology-enhances-classroom-experience?utm_source=t.co&utm_medium=referral

The opening sentence seems like a fair introduction to a certain edtech paradigm: "Technology can bring the real world into the higher ed classroom and better prepare students for the workforce through hands-on technical training." The site as a whole is worth considering for who it seems to involve in teaching + technology discourse.

Excited to use Withknown as a collaborative online scratchpad for class this fall. Been looking for an integrated way a class can share items across social media platforms, generate on-site posts and replies, &c. Wonder if this might even take the place of a CMS like Moodle.
