    On February 1, 2012, U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan and Federal Communications Chairman Julius Genachowski jointly announced a major digital textbook initiative at a national online town hall meeting as part of the inaugural Digital Learning Day (http://www.digitallearningday.org/DLD2012 ). Of course, it is practicing teachers who will inevitably struggle to integrate digital textbooks (as well as serious games, virtual worlds, 3D video, mobile devices, etc.) into the classroom. I feel confident in predicting that few of the expected benefits of the digital textbook initiative, especially enhanced learning, will be achieved. This is primarily because this educational technology innovation initiative like so many others before it has started with a solution rather than a problem.

    I argue that “just as good is not good enough” and we must stop throwing educational technologies over the classroom walls and expect real change. It is time for educational researchers and practitioners to collaborate in more effective approaches to solving educational problems. Educational design research (AKA design-based research and by other names) offers a viable alternative to traditional educational research approaches. This week I’ll present some ideas about educational design research and we’ll discuss how educational practice and outcomes might be enhanced if this research genre is more widely adopted.

    See the angle of us via video of us in our room and content using AMMS (note you will not hear the audio from Collaborate as we had headsets on, but you can get the idea of room capture and content capture). Part 1 and Part 2. I wouldn't recommend watching the whole thing, but rather to stay with watching the Collaborate or Youtube recordings, but you can visit these links to see what the interface looks like and how it plays for you. We are trying to move over to our ipad skin so this session unfortunately isn't capable of ipad viewing. Next time! :-)
    Check out a pic HEREof AMMS interface with video on left (showing Blue Jeans Network session) and content on right (showing the Collaborate session). Not that we'd do that regularly, but just playing with the boundaries of seeing what's possible for bringing people together via the way they are able to join.

    Blue Jeans: max 25 participants, no recording, allows content (screen) sharing but you give up video to see that, allows for VC units, skype, and telephone to all merge. Note they are working on increasing maximum participants and recording features in R&D. Sample pic HEREof a blue jeans session mixing VC unit and skype participants.

    ...
    Identity:
    Digital identity is a psychological identity that prevails in the domains of cyberspace, and is defined as a set of data that uniquely describes a person or a thing (sometimes referred to as subject or entity) and contains information about the subject's relationships to other entities.
    Readings:
    See my bookmarks on identity found on Delicious or Diigo (these are identical lists, cross-posted to both services).
    Masters of our Domain Names - upcoming project from UMW that will provide students with personal domain names and hosting.
    Asians in the Library: Know Your Meme - story of the 'UCLA Racist Girl'.
    Key Questions:
    What have you done to intentionally manage your online identity? What tools and processes are you using?
    What should the role of educational institutions be in assisting in the development of a learner's digital identity?
    With the likelihood of learners having a tarnished digital identity, how importance will the concept of 'forgiveness' be in the future of our children.
