How would it be if I gave every student on DZX222 access to this blog? Or to another blog, created for the purpose? Then I could put in my musings as I go along and get student responses. It would be another source of data and a whole new use for my blog. Of course, [...]

Maarten Dolk http://www.fi.uu.nl/nl/medewerkers/medewerkers/medewerker63.html gave an interesting talk about getting student teachers to develop narratives about events as a tool to construct meaning about mathematics education and to bridge the divide between theory and practice.

But having been stressed out with deadlines all week, and expecting to be stressed out agin tomorrow when my supervisors have had a chance to pull to pieces my [...]
Obviously haven’t quite sorted out how to change my header!
I’m still puzzling over the big issue for Internet community research ethics. Is what we see online a virtual identity,which should be treated according to the ethical standards of human subject research, or is it published text, in which case the relevant ethical standards relate to copyright and acknowledgement?

There seem to be a very few high-profile cases around which the discourse of Internet research ethics has been based. There’s ‘A Rape in Cyberspace’ which Julian Dibbell wrote up in Village Voice in 1993. This has all sorts of ramifications but, from the point of view of research ethics, the message is – these [...]
