Is there any hope at all that any of the treatments have a good or semi-good result?

Does Joy do some Google searches before she meets her doctor so that she can understand what it means if s/he tells her she has stage X?

I have a thought here but I don't want to impose it on the game. But I'll share it anyway. One of the things I have learned from friends who are breast cancer survivors (dunno about other types) is that you are not immediately "healthy" once you are cancer-free. You actually continue to take meds to protect from recurrence and they suffer from all kinds of health issues as a result of meds (chemo brain) not cancer directly. If this person were to survive, we could learn a lot about her. But I also understand the importance of the situation of a young person who knows she will die from leukemia and if that's the story you need to tell, it's up to you and it's sooo valuable

Your point here makes me realize we either need more of what Joy is feeling... Or possibly having two different options in this game: to play Joy or to play someone from her support network. Playing both roles would be useful for a potential caregiver as they would learn to make decisions as a supportive person but also learn to think from POV of the patient. What do you think, Maria and Joe?

Good point. An opportunity to educate about symptoms of certain cancers as well, and would justify her nervousness - 18 year olds would not normally be nervous about a regular checkup.

Manifesto for teaching online 2016 – Creativity in the Open

No highlighted text in this annotation.

I really object to this as an unqualified manifesto item. I know the folks who wrote this are really critical people but this item needs unpacking. They had shared a link on their particular work on bots and I think it deserves to be added to the annotation: http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/13562517.2015.1020783

Good point. I was wondering if we should translate this...but also curious who participated in writing it. It's all pretty vague to me

Knowing the Difference Between Digital Skills and Digital Literacies, and Teaching Both

Thank you for bringing up mutual respect. Really important term to discuss and unpack and behavior/attitude to aim for.

Right on. As a mom, I once answered a survey on my kid's tech use. One key question I noticed was whether i leave my kid (at the time she was 2 or 3) with an internet-connected device. It made me realize of course that once the internet is on, she could get into all sorts of trouble. I always had like the Apple store buying restricted so she would not buy stuff and turned off her ability to delete apps, but she could always get onto YouTube and watch something recommended by YouTube that i would not approve of.

Yes! Surveillance is a REAL concern that is more important in our context than Westerners realize.

Oooh i love this painting example! Can I steal and reuse it, citing you?

I think you're right. You can't have digital literacy without skill. The opposite may not be true though. Someone somewhere here made a comment about a driving analogy I really liked... You may have already seen it, or I mentioned it in my video...

It may be that the school curricula haven't caught on yet :) We are working on it for AUC and maybe you all can tell me which areas you feel are missing/needed

Yes! That is a really important realization and one that many people overlook. I'll tell you more in class about a term called "digital natives" that became popular but was later widely criticized. Thanks for bringing this up

I thought you've actually added a really useful point beyond what's in the article - great point

The Copenhagen Letter, 2017

To everyone who shapes technology today

what about those who don't have the capacity to be shaping technology today? what is their role? where is their voice? (no document can include EVERYbody, but it's worth noting who is not being addressed or included in this document)

but also... we should problematize who gets to decide what is considered universally humane, even while recognizing it as a good social justice orientation...

The Copenhagen Letter, 2017

We must seek to design with those for whom we are designing.

but this entails recognizing the power those who are able to "design" have (because of their technical competence, social clout, financial ability, or time availability), and perhaps questioning how inclusive our design practices are. Just because one person feels the design is good for others doesn't mean it is... how much participation in design decisions is there?

The Copenhagen Letter, 2017

Let us move from human-centered design to humanity-centered design.

I love this statement. It made me reflect on the difference between human and humanity, and whether they mean thinking about the social/collective rather than the individual, and how the word "humanity" implies a value orientation, whereas "human" seems to be value-neutral.

From Written to Digital: The New Literacy

In a deterministic system, like that of a computer, a single input leads to a single output: cause leads to effect.

not so for neural network type algorithms, which control much of the internet (or some of it, anyway) today
