The Rebirth of Cool: Trust, Tech, and Dystopias

Tressie McMillan Cottom writes about joining in a MOOC and discusses the tools that participants are using there and in the classes she teaches and observes.  Lots of DIY here and emphasis on what works that is appealing.

Key phrase  "They don’t much like your top-down ed-tech tools. They use the tools they already have in service of what they need and want. They are making spaces that institutions do not provide them. They are adapting those spaces relative to their social locations and I suspect the differences are partially about who and what they trust."

Here's the complete post.
