In spring 2016, SEHD is launching a new undergraduate Digital Media and Learning minor, open to students from any discipline and designed to promote the use of emerging technologies in students’ chosen majors and careers. Holden has been a key player in launching this minor, which will help students explore how new media, storytelling, mobile learning, games and networks can be leveraged to solve problems, advance civic engagement and design more participatory futures. In preparation for the launch, Holden described three things students and teachers need to understand about learning in a digital age.

Original Tweet: https://twitter.com/gpetriglieri/status/657800196110360576


Artists don't only have courage to be themselves with abandon, they have license too. Leaders don't usually, and it's not clear they should.

Original Tweet: https://twitter.com/gpetriglieri/status/657801011445264384

?

The leader-artist metaphor fits to a point. Artists' duty is to defy norms. Leaders' duty, at least at some point, is to set them.

Original Tweet: https://twitter.com/gpetriglieri/status/657801421010636800

?

To turn artists into leaders and vice versa, rather than respect their opposition, is to collapse a tension that makes a culture bealthy.

Original Tweet: https://twitter.com/gpetriglieri/status/657802002634842112

Leaders, of course, like to think that they're artists--to claim licenses and freedoms, privileges, that they arguably shouldn't have.

Zadie Smith, who turns 40 today, on the artist and the anguish of the American dream buff.ly/1POeFZHpic.twitter.com/RM6fhLRDDI
Smith observes the centripetal force with which New York, every time she returns, pulls her into its vortex of unrelenting beach-finding:
I have to get used to old New York ladies beside themselves with fury that I have stopped their smooth elevator journey and got in with some children. I have to remember not to pause while walking in the street — or during any fluid-moving city interaction — unless I want to utterly exasperate the person behind me. Each man and woman in this town is in pursuit of his or her beach and God help you if you get in their way.
I suppose it should follow that I am happier in pragmatic England than idealist Manhattan, but I can’t honestly say that this is so. You don’t come to live here unless the delusion of a reality shaped around your own desires isn’t a strong aspect of your personality. “A reality shaped around your own desires” — there is something sociopathic in that ambition.
It’s not a pretty energy, but it still runs what’s left of the show. I contribute to it. I ride a stationary bike like the rest of them. And then I despair when Shakespeare and Co. closes in favor of another Foot Locker. There’s no way to be in good faith on this island anymore. You have to crush so many things with your mind vise just to get through the day…

Why Tory's UK no longer innovates: 1. people have no space to think and grow. No time to read, reflect and share ideas with others. #marr


WhatsApp's co-founder on how the app became a phenomenon: https://t.co/esRlW6jeVR https://t.co/5dn1Qa08m4

Facebook shelled out $19 billion because the app—a way of sending text messages over the Internet, without paying the typically high SMS fees that wireless carriers charge to send texts across their private networks—had reached a similarly enormous 450 million people across Europe and the developing world, including India and Africa.
Sure, the app was simple. But it met a real need. And it could serve as a platform for building all sorts of other simple services in places where wireless bandwidth is limited but people are hungry for the sort of instant communication we take for granted here in the US. One simple messaging app could provide voice calling, video calling, instant payments, and more.
co-founder Jan Koum was unapologetic in saying he considers PR and press a drag on the company’s time. “Marketing and press kicks up dust,” said the Ukraine-born Koum, who founded the company alongside an old Yahoo colleague named Brian Acton. “It gets in your eye, and then you’re not focusing on the product.”

This stuff makes me wonder if  everyone hacking each other also makes us safer? Destabilizing, but also knowledge... https://t.co/NDzScQf7kr

there is a baseline level of knowledge that learners need before they can move on to higher order critical and creative thinking. However, in higher education — and to an even greater extent, corporate education — our historical model of expert-to-student instruction becomes increasingly less relevant in an age where nearly any piece of information can be found with a few well-crafted Google queries.
? baseline.. higher order..?
To foster not only the content knowledge of employees, but also the social skills they require to succeed, businesses cannot rely on either lecture-format courses or their digital cousin, the MOOC. We need to return to the MOOC as originally envisioned: social learning. Best-in-class corporate education creates a place where colleagues can connect, form networks, and share ideas. It is increasingly important to engage learners socially, because they stand to learn as much from each other as from formal instruction. This does not require forgoing the best-in-class lectures, but rather re-packaging them as part of a broader pedagogical strategy that includes social learning as a core part of the student experience.

re- package..
why package..? isn't that what www frees us from?
