My recent favourite authors are Marshall McLuhan and Lev Vygotsky (with a bit of Zenon Pylyshyn and Fodor for good measure). I have been reading The Gutenberg Galaxy on my Kindle, and I am still trying to come to terms with the best way to capture ideas and beginnings of papers to share with myself and others. I had a recent love affair with Moleskin A5 black squared notebooks combined with post-it notes as a review/tagging system, but I have too many of them with too diverse a collection of stuff.
I have played with blogs and wikis as reading logs and I briefly considered tweeting stuff from the Kindle annotations page, but I’ve decided to stick with WordPress as a tool and I’ve reinstated my Edublogs offerings, one for me as a possible site to put class-related information, and the other as a site for my Lab to use as a shared blog.
My Edublogs blogs are:
- Yabber – my own site, possibly to use for info of interest to students, but currently with a bit of an over-the-top theme
- MoCapSuite – a lab site with shared authorship, named in honour of my university’s marketing team
