Great thinking for but I must admit I was going in a different direction with the horrible word creeping into education that is both a noun and verb

Like that horribly unmeasurable verb that we see creeping up in learning outcomes so often, “understand,”

Maybe learninhall good things in life are hard to name, count, and something many want more of.


@mhawksey Part of the update to the Web Literacy Map v1.5 was putting in APIs.


I will be annotating Leander & Rowe 2006 today with @hypethosis_is today. Kevin introduced me to the rhizome as a metaphor for learning. We were presenting our first qualitative study:

Ringler-Pet, McVerry, J. G., S., & O’Byrne, W. I. (2013). Multimodal response and authorship as a poetry experience. In K. Pytash & R. Fertig (Eds). Exploring Technology in Writing and Reading Instruction. (will post later my pub page needs much love).

The presenation was in like 09-10 can't remember. Takes long time to get things to print (especially after a few key rejections. Every pub, like a puppy, should have a home.

Sue and I started with Rosenblatt and ended up with Bakhtin. At first because it was a session on Bakhtin but then because we found Transasctional Theory to centered on the "one." Bakhtinian ideas carnivale and chronotoes just fit our work better.

When we presented our work Leander was the discussant. Sue and I discussed how we chose Thematic Network Analysis because the article gave us step by step directions.

Kevin, in pure rhizomatic nature, called us out for being beholden to someone else's methods. He simply said make them up as you go, but establish your credibility with your document trail.

So I figure today was as good as any to annotate his piece to learn more about our metaphor.

I love when our metaphors are challenged.


I will be your rhizomatic non-linear academic writing partner. Been documenting attempts here: Plus I can steal from you ideas on using GitPages.
