maybe, in concert with an emphasis on making and collaborating and bug reporting and embracing other values of the open web, individuals can help reorient the cultural attitude toward technology away from entanglement and back to a place of enlightenment.

    Domains for pupils an idea for now?⤴

    Here are a great series of articles that I came across this morning. I’d recommend everyone interested in the Internet and education to read them.

    For someone who reads a lot online I do not dip into TES often. So I was excited to find
    Jim Knight: ‘Let’s give all students their own domain name – and watch the digital learning that follows’ today.

    Ironically I got it via Jim Groom’s post:
    Domains and the Cost of Innovation. I do read Jim’s blog religiously.

    Jim Knight’s article is based on another wonderful post by Audrey Watters> Audrey writes about the work of Jim Groom and others at the University of Mary Washington: The Web We Need to Give Students.

    I’ve been muttering and mumbling about this idea for a good while now, based on reading about the UMW project and taking part in DS106. I really hope that the TES article gives the idea some legs and it can get some traction in the UK and more importantly, to me, in Scotland.

    Before I started working on the Glow team, I included it in a post, Glow should be at the trailing edge?. I don’t think the idea has ever been given serious consideration at the right level. It certainly goes is a slightly different direction than Glow is going but it is still worth considering.
