Did math & spelling assessments with 2nd graders yesterday, doing their best. Constant balance between “good effort” and “right answer.”

@AngelaMaiers Thanks! Just tried them. Now, I’d like to have suggestions for “aligned” people to follow and curate.

via Nambu in reply to AngelaMaiers

@AngelaMaiers I am looking for Twitter apps that weigh my follows, lists, and retweets to suggest people. “Similar” block doesn’t do it.

via Nambu in reply to AngelaMaiers

Viewing a Twitter list is like visiting another planet. Echo chamber. We need a “trusted curator” rating. Number of followers is irrelevant.

@jeffcram Governance is a challenge for many. Let’s ask our colleagues: is your #webgov model working? #highedwebgov

@jeffcram The institutions of higher education that move online experience to the core of mission, service, and marketing will thrive.

It does feel strange keeping my most valuable Twitter lists private. Seeking balance between open and closed knowledge.
