Chris Thomson Also, his 15 second Instagram snapshots of history are an intriguing format delve.tv/instagram - wonder what a creative teacher would do to turn that into a learning activity with students making their own.

Chris Thomson Been enjoying these "video essays" by Adam Westbrook today. Like the personal POV on historical events, the high production values and the quality of the writing - delve.tv

Chris Thomson Good ideas. Someone told me I should be writing more. Got to stop giving myself excuses. :)

Chris Thomson Sod it, I'll just write it on the train to MK this afternoon and if it actually turns out rubbish I'll keep it to myself.

Chris Thomson I think I've got an interesting blog post germinating in my brain about media, rumour and narrative but frustratingly I don't seem to have the mental capacity to write it down. I hate days like this! :s

Dpsouthwell That sounds fascinating!
Chris Thomson Hello . Any chance of word wrap when typing updates?
💬 Subreply Sure, if browsers implement a native word wrapping input[type=text] Sublevel will support it from day one.
Muranava hey all any teachers here?
Chris Thomson I've worked WITH schools rather than as a teacher.

Chris Thomson There's a chance I might be making a big deal out of a stubbed toe.

Chris Thomson This BBC Click video on Learner Analytics made me a bit uncomfortable for lots of reasons. t.co/Q97GUqXbcV Main question in my head is this: are people pursuing LA to make up for a growing lack of meaningful relationships in education, or to move us to a place where institutions don't have to worry about them because they have "data" instead?

Chris Thomson What do you think of it so far?
7y, 34w reply
Chris Thomson Having said that, it's fun exploring something new.

Chris Thomson Some of Sublevel's About pages are fairly bizarre. "You are the nucleus of an atom and the network itself is a tiny layer that holds electrons into their position".

Chris Thomson Finding it interesting how the questions I'm asking myself joining Sublevel are substantially different from when I joined Twitter in 2008. Much more conscious of data and privacy. Twitter was all about identity.

Chris Thomson I think I might have broken my toe today.
