  12. 12. "For the first time in human history, two related propositions are true. One, it no longer is possible to store within the human brain all of the information that a human needs. Second, it no longer is necessary to store within the human brain all of the information that humans need. Education needs to be geared toward the handling of data rather than the accumulation of data.” - Berlo, 1975

  21. 21. Top-down knowledge dissemination is no longer sufficient
  22. 22. Architecture of participation
  23. 23. Identity = Price of Admission h"ps://www.flickr.com/photos/mkhmarkeng/8468788107  
  24. 24. Identity need not be fully public, but should allow in-group identification
  25. 25. Should scaffold & extend conversations & resource-sharing @hypothes_is!
  26. 26. Should open new conversations
  27. 27. Digital identity can also allow teachers to model
  28. 28. You shape what they see
  29. 29. There is no such thing as a digital native.
  30. 30. Identity is formed by contribution over time
  31. 31. Contribution = Control.
  32. 32. But the sites of digital identity are not neutral.
  33. 33. Empires are constructed from money, territory, and information. In the globalized 21st century, not all empires are geopolitical.

  41. 41. Google yourself. What do you find?
  42. 42. Digital identity can be stressful
  43. 43. But it is a key form of connection. Sometimes…I’ll choose someone with twenty followers, because I come across something they’ve managed to say in 140 characters, and I think “oh, look at you, crafting on a grain of rice.” - @KateMfD h"ps://www.flickr.com/photos/visualpanic/843670538
