1. Daniel Lynds is posting “11 sentences everyday that take spatterings from things around [him]” during the month of November and I wanted to write one because I like the idea and it looked fun (what better day than 11/11?).
  2. I’m still pondering the fantastic/organic discussion we had during our reading group this week about cultural models, engaging students metacognitively, and how power dynamics play into the world.
  3. With the creation of edufeeds, I’ve been more in tune with blogosphere conversations lately and it’s interesting to closely follow online discussion again.
  4. This has also made me feel more connected to online edu folks these past few weeks as I’ve been interacting with them more regularly.
  5. On Tuesday, John and I spoke with Daniel & Kin Lane about Teh Jigz Up! and web content driven by an open database (google sheet in this case).
  6. I love this idea!
  7. So, John and I are looking at what an open database Twine game or website would look like as a means to engage folks in collaborative game development and/or web publishing.
  8. Along the same lines, I’ve been playing with pseudo-domain mapping by using an iFrame¹ to cover up the fact that an Adobe Spark page is accessible from spark.keeganslw.com.
  9. This means I can edit the page from the Spark app on my iPad and have it visible from a link I know (in addition to toying with web publishing workflows).
  10. #OLCInnovate has started to capture my attention as there are proposals to review and I’m heading (and anticipating) the Innovation Lab this year!
  11. Otherwise, I just got Doom on the Nintendo Switch and am going to play until the work on our car is completed—yay new tires and such.

¹ With this text in an index.html file, I’m able to pull the content from Spark into my domain:
