Claim Your Domain - And Own Your Online Presence
Too often, education technologies are developed that position students as objects of education, a reflection no doubt of how traditional educational practices also view students. Education technologies do things to students, rather than foster student agency. If we are to challenge what "school" should look like, we must also challenge what "ed-tech" does as well. What sorts of technologies can and should we build to give students more control? What sorts of technologies can offer students the power to "own" their learning -- their data, their content, their digital profiles, and their domain?
This short book, Claim Your Domain, is part of a larger series, edited by Will Richardson and published by Solution Tree, called "Solutions for Modern Learning." Other titles in the series include The End of School as We Know It by Bruce Dixon, Freedom to Learn by Will Richardson, and Make School Meaningful -- And Fun by Roger Schank.
