Post Title: Why was Unlikely Voters started?
By ilyse kazar, Feed Name: ilyse kazar's blog
Preview: Unlikely Voters ("uV") is an idea that rattled around my head for a good two or three years prior to our first project. This summer I had an unexpected opportunity to run a three-part workshop at a school in New York City (more on that very soon!) and the response of both the students and the school's staff was overwhelmingly positive. And, at the late age of 54, I have ....

Post Title: Searching for peace when things get frazzled. #CMC11
By johngriffin0928, Feed Name: Forever Learning
Preview: I found this on RetSam’s blog. It’s sort of how I feel today. Some of that comes from the fact that I have been thinking a lot about Sept. 11, 2001, lately, as have many others because of the 10th anniversary. I’m sick of the smug politicians with their vapid, jingoistic nonsense about the meaning [...]

Post Title: #CMC11 — I’m here. I think. I am.
By johngriffin0928, Feed Name: Forever Learning
Preview: I’m really looking forward to taking the next step in my education about MOOCs and online learning. I started last fall with PLENK2010, an exploration of personal learning environments. When that MOOC started, I didn’t have a clue what a MOOC was or what a personal learning environment, or PLE, was. And the first few [...]

I started after I got laid off and heard that getting the word out about myself could help in landing a job. In indirect ways, the various services, including LinkedIn, [...]

Title: Re: Public Mindmap - Qs/issues with using this site
Preview: Thanks for your notes on my  mindmap, so helpful. And it was led to see that mindmaps (at least on Mindmeister) do not lend themselves well to asynchronous collaboration. I will be submitting to the Mindmeister team a feature request that adds discussions against any object on the map. Right now our only choice is to edit one note & tag our name onto each newly added comment. Comments ....
