Between the Chapters: #4 deconstructing constructivism with @Jessifer
In this Between the Chapters episode, Laura chats with Jesse Stommel about constructivism (Chapter 4) and everything in the universe of education. We work through Jesse’s detest of “scaffolding” and praise for the Dewey’s ideas from over a hundred years ago. You’ll hear what we’re thinking about being more student-centered to move us outside of current learning panopticons -- by actually talking to students to figure out how we can learn today. We bat around ideas for a more nuanced conversation of what ed tech can look like now during a pandemic, and perhaps in the future if we think more critically about our digital pedagogy and listen to one another. Imagine that! “In higher education, pedagogical thought just isn’t a thing -- it doesn’t even actually exist as a thing.” ~ @jessiferHere are a few things we discuss, rant, and praise in this episode of the pod: Audrey Watters HASTAC: Humanities, Arts, Science, and Technology Alliances and Collaboratory Digital Pedagogy + Follow on Twitter: #DigPed Critical Pedagogy Ungrading Movement Schools of To-Morrow by John Dewey and Evelyn Dewey Critical Digital Pedagogy: a Definition What Is Critical Digital Pedagogy, and Why Does Higher Ed Need It?

Between the Chapters: #3 CMC with @slowtech2000 & @mbrownz
In this Between the Chapters episode, Laura is joined by Clare Thomson and Mark Brown to get nostalgic for the things we were building and working on back in the mid-90s with computer-mediated communication (CMC)... and then some for Chapter 3. We dig into the pioneering practices and “cottage innovations” that were groundbreaking at the time, and offer us some sound learned lessons for today. What we did then, may still be relevant now for how we are thinking about online learning. Here are a few things we mentioned during this episode: The Virtual Community by Harold Rheingold Global Networks: Computers and International Communication by Linda Harasim Learning Networks: A Field Guide to Teaching and Learning Online by Linda Harasim Boundary Breaking in Education [PDF] virtual student teaching between Canada & New Zealand Teaching is a Subversive Activity and book by Neil Postman & Charles Weingartner xMOOC vs cMOOC? Defining Common MOOC Terms The Medium is the Message ~ Marshall McLuhan The Slow Movement “Ed tech is not a game for the impatient.” ~ @mweller How can we go back, to the things we learned then, to move us forward in the virtual learning environments?How will our community be dialoguing about these ideas and issues related to CMC for how we teach and learn now?Learn more about the guests in this episode:Clare: https://www.lostandfoundinedtech.org/ Mark: https://www.dcu.ie/nidl/director-nidl Follow on Twitter: @YearsEdDo you have thoughts, comments, or questions about this podcast?

Chapter 3: 1996 Computer-Mediated Comunication
Computer-Mediated Communication (CMC) marks the point where the technology began to be used with pedagogical intent in education, providing support for emerging Constructivist models of learning. The use of CMC's also began to force questions of educators to explore the implicit assumptions involved in teaching & learning and begin to unpack those assumptions to meet the demands of CMC environments. This chapter is read by Laura Pasquini.

Chapter 2: 1995 The Web
Even though it was invented in the late 1980s by CERN researcher Time Berners-Lee, 1995 marks the year that the World Wide Web burst into wide public consciousness. Initially dismissed as a passing fade by many in education, the web more than any other technology has gone on to profoundly alter not only education but society as a whole. Chapter 2 is narrated by Jeffery Saddoris.

Between the Chapters: #1 talking BBS with @cogdog
In this episode, Laura Pasquini chats with Alan Levine about Bulletin Board Systems (BBS) and what was going on in the land of learning online in 1994. We reflect back to the time of dial-up internet, the start community interest groups, and the beginnings of how these technologies would have impacted educational technology. What we learned then, that maybe we could be reminded of nowadays.

Chapter 1: 1994 Bulletin Board Systems
Our historical review of education technology begins in 1994 with Bulletin Board Systems or BBS and looks at how BBS laid the groundwork for much of the networked communications we now use on a daily basis. The chapter looks at how the BBS changed the nature of distance in distance education, student resistance to this new form of communication in distance learning, and how the BBS surfaced early issues around copyright of digitized materials. The chapter is read by Bonni Stachowiak host of the Teaching in Higher Ed podcast.

Between the Chapters: Introduction with @mweller
In this episode, Laura has a chat with Martin about the creation of the 25 Years of Ed Tech. From a blog post series to exploring each year in more depth to now -- the book is born! We discuss how the chapters came about, the introduction chapter, and take a sneak peek behind the scenes for the writing process. In talking about the history of ed tech, Martin has offered a few themes and issues from his perspective that he hopes the larger community of teaching and learning continues to draw from, add to, or even fill in the gaps. We discuss the history of ed tech shared in the book, and what it means for our pivot to online learning now.
