This sounds like a good model - as long as someone reads it in the end. I also find grading with rubrics tedious. but I like responding to my students writing and discussing it with them

have read your article - you are not really arguing for machine grading, as much as "machine correction" so that humans can focus on the more important aspects of audience, voice, context, etc. I think we are arguing the same thing, but the difference is I am talking about the existence of machine grading that is about not asking teachers (or other humans) to read the essays at all

I am definitely OK with machines correcting spelling and grammar (though autocorrect can occasionally be annoying). But I'm objecting to complete essays being graded by a machine (which has existed for some time - beyond the technical corrections you mention). I will read your article

I'm interested in studying various models for online cross-cultural learning, and about ways faculty design the experience, build rapport/community across the two classes, the sizes of the groups working together, and what they end up doing together and how/where. It requires a heck of a lot of thoughtfulness to make this work, and a lot of support...and it could still fail for reasons you can't plan ahead of time... but I'm researching what we have here locally to see different designs and think about what might be some useful tips for people to try. There are already probably some models that already exist, and I'll come across them as I go... I did once write a paper about how Open access version: http://dar.aucegypt.edu/handle/10526/4363

do you mean how people have given up on Twitter, for example, and are thinking of migrating instead of sticking and trying to fix something you have little control over?

oh please YES tell me how to do that! What I've been doing locally (and it's a really big deal coz I'm in Egypt) is inviting prominent keynote speakers to events here and at least showing off my networking muscles that way. I had Ruha Benjamin last year, for example. She rocks! I've replicated international prof dev events locally because I know people who will come and do this for me... that kind of thing. But yeah. It is not quantifiable, or visible. To be completely fair, I've seen this labor done by both men and women, but women do it much more extensively and deeply. But I do have a few men who were very active in my relationship with them, so not all one-way there..

yessssssssss it takes time - and a semester is not going to cut it, so they need some kind of entryway into our own networks to get a sense of that; I hope I gave a glimpse of this on today's call, but can answer more questions later if you like. What is sometimes quite cool is if someone else's class are willing to talk to my class, so both sets of students benefit from our network, but they're meeting peers not experts and having that kind of interaction... I've done it once as part of a 3-day twitter game called #TvsZ and it worked great!

that is exactly my life! I live online because I'm a mother of a young child (and my husband has erratic work hours so he can never be my backup if I need something outside work hours). But also, during Egypt's revolution I was pregnant and later breastfeeding and my activism definitely became more and more digital. Glad to hear this is not just me... that other moms find this a suitable outlet...and yes, breastfeeding moms more so, of course, because of the need to be near your child in ways non-breastfeeding moms don't experience in that extreme way. It got better after I weaned her... but she's still young ;) The point, though, is that being a mom and needing to prioritize your child, does not mean we can put our citizenship on hold, right? So some form of it that works to some extent helps a lot!

if I understand correctly, maybe the point she is making is that it's not enough to engage digitally, some action on the ground is necessary... I do think, always, of the role of social media in the Egyptian revolution to help people mobilize and connect with others they would not normally have had access to. At the same time, I think about how social media is surveilled and puts people at more risk... so...

I understand where you're both coming from here... one of the things that first occurred to me with respect to philosophy is that my understanding is that in the US, the majority of philosophy PhDs, professors are white males. Few people of color, few women. That alone should be a red flag. Just being in an environment like that a. does not promote interaction with the "other", and b. should make us question what it is about the discipline that is unwelcoming or possibly hostile to women and minorities? As a fluent but non-native speaker of English, as someone who originally studied computer science, I find reading philosophical texts really burdensome (even after I got a PhD in Education that studies critical thinking - really!) and having discussions with philosophers drives me nuts because I don't know what to do with myself (and I love a good debate, but really...). Anyway. Bit of a rant...

Yesssss I am thinking again about Paulo Freire talking about verbalism (that isn't active) and activism (that isn't reflective), but also about how critical discourses that are based on antagonism are not constructive. It's interesting that this article was written over a year ago, and with the new context in the US, it still make sense...

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

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

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.
