This is sort of a dream or a poem or a vision relating to the open classroom, but I'm feeling a bit shy to actually post it on my blog.
...I am in my classroom.
Students bring in ideas from all of the places that they have been, and they excite me with their enthusiasm. Other students bring their fear, their anger, and their failure, and these also excite me with their oblique evidence of dreams , hopes, and power. Still others don't bring anything at all because they didn't think they had anything to bring, but still they bring their potential, their sadness, and their unspoken wishes.
Through our discussions, the students start to change places and dance together. The enthusiasts get overwhelmed and afraid. The powerless get angry and act up. The fearful see the hope in their failures and lose some of their fear. Collectively and individually we go through... more »

I was feeling low energy today and I sat down to write this blog post and got myself really pumped up both for my class and for the next etmooc topic.

Wrote this post earlier this week, when I was really disconnected with #etmooc Re-engaged this morning to read the intro post and the Jenkins paper on participatory culture. Loving his def of participatory culture and finding it is just the idea of community that I need to connect making/doing with education and math: "A participatory culture is a culture with relatively low barriers to artistic expression and civic engagement, strong support for creating and sharing one’s creations, and some type of informal mentorship whereby what is known by the most experienced is passed along to novices. A participatory culture is also one in which members believe their contributions matter, and feel some degree of social connection with one another (at the least they care what other people think about what they have

"Couzin has found an example of a more exciting type of collective intelligence—where a group solves a problem that none of its members are even aware of. Simply by moving together, the group gains new abilities that its members lack as individuals."

This semester I am teaching a course called Liberation Math, and part the intent is to share our learning with others and grow personal learning networks. I want to help students find their voice and use it. If you know anyone who is interested in mathematics teaching and learning, we're going to be having some great conversations, so feel free to pass the site along!

I am teaching a course this semester called "Liberation Math" and I became interested in MOOCs because I want to expand the conversations in the class beyond our classroom. In this post, I pulled together a paper I've been reading about critical pedagogy with some reflection about whether MOOCs can be liberatory. I'm really interested in what other people think about liberation, power, and alternative pedagogies in relation to connected learning!

So I never made an intro video, but I have made a rambling blog post about constructivism, math, compulsory education, and even technology, which really does say a lot about who I am.

Very rough draft of my presentation on using game theory to model gendered division of labor in parenting. Trying to distill long paper into something entertaining and useful! Still needs some work, and any suggestions gratefully accepted in comments or twitter (@faroop).

"a remarkable finding of the model is that the level of effort which keeps a happy relationship going is always greater than the effort level that would be chosen optimally a priori (if only the present counted.)" Great example of using mathematics to model relationships!

slow start to our mini-survey over the weekend, but the quality of the responses has been great. So please tell us what you think about 'making' and education.

Goodbye Adrienne Rich -- you made the world a better place. It's interesting that the quote in this article reminds me of the way that math class silences so many people.

This looks like so much fun -- "What is we are doing is taking the sensibilities and methods of busking and then using them to communicate mathematics"

I am studying negative experiences in mathematics, and I would love to hear about yours. If you had a negative or challenging mathematical experience during elementary, middle, or high school, please consider taking 15-20 minutes to complete an online survey at http://bit.ly/emomath. The goal of this research is to better understand how negative experiences happen and the impact that those experiences have on learners.
If you have any questions about the work, feel free to contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org). The survey will be available at http://bit.ly/emomath through March 8th, 2012. Please pass this on to anyone that you think might be willing to share their experiences!

I'm studying emotions in math (especially shame, see http://bit.ly/w7xRxR). I'm working on a survey I want to deploy this semester, and I'd love to get everyone's comments and suggestions. The draft is here: http://bit.ly/xUnYyH.

Talk and other materials from #jmm2012 talk on the spread of acceptance of lesbians and gay men is up on my website (http://angelavc.wordpress.com) and on prezi. Let me know if you have any comments or questions!

Working on my talk for the joint math meetings next week, which I am proud to say is going to be the only talk about queers at the conference (titled: "How Does Acceptance of Lesbian and Gay Men Spread in a Social Network?"). I am also hoping to find people to connect with around the work I've been doing on shame and mathematics. So if you are going to be at the joint meetings and either of these things interests you, let me know!

My blog post regarding a game theoretical model of social networking...
I finish the post with a possible idea of an open research project as encouraged by +Michael Nielsen...

In this blog post, I argue that random chance can explain increasing inequality in the distribution of wealth. The basic idea is very simple, but it is also important and not widely known.
