Noisy Idiots « White Noise

"The Noisy Idiot Dilemma is the name of my thesis at ITP, that I submitted in May 2010 as part of Katherine Dillon’s class. I began researching this issue in Clay Shirky’s Social Facts class at ITP in Spring 2009.

 

"There is a lot of work to be done if we’re to succeed at building a participatory democracy. In online forums, sometimes “noisy idiot behavior” often dominates the discussion and ruins the enterprise for all. In this thesis, I analyze the problem and propose ideas to enable productive participatory online discussion."

What has writing ever done for us? The power of teachers’ writing groups - Smith - 2012 - English in Education - Wiley Online Library

The research described here arises from our long-term engagement with teachers’ writing. It goes back to a series of commissions/workshops at NATE conference in the early 1990s, prompted by Pat D’Arcy’s response to the US National Writing Project and which focused on the teacher as reflective writer.

 

It was soon apparent that participants had important things that they wished to write and that writing, talking about the process of writing and reflecting on the implications of the experience for classroom practice were a powerful and unpredictable mix.

 

The conference writing groups very rapidly created a community that wished to continue writing and sharing beyond the conference. In 1992, the workshop gave rise to a writing group that met and continues to meet for residential writing weekends. The authors have been part of that writing group ever since. (1) The impact of working with this group seems to be profound. In this paper we begin to sketch out a map of what we are learning from being involved with teachers and writing.

Could digital humanities to undergraduates could boost information literacy? | Inside Higher Ed

"...a panel of digital humanists said that weaving digital humanities research into undergraduate education could help boost information literacy among college students."

"For all their familiarity with Google and other modern discovery tools, research has shown that most members of the “born digital” generation do not know how those tools work. An anthropological study of students at several Illinois colleges revealed that students -- even smart, successful ones -- were largely ignorant of the underlying logic of the digital tools they relied on for research."
