Hi all! I am a k12 teacher and co-director of @CLD. I believe that using within a critical-thinking framework (aka ) will give us just and equitable schools. I've done some praxis-based writing and publishing about our experiments with this - I'll post links if folks are interested. Here for ideas in the worlds of , (liquid? Deliberative? Participatory?), and .
Looking forward to connecting!

This fall, a youth-adult partnership Design Team met after school and over weekends to take the idea of school back to its foundation: what should school be for? After training in Restorarive Practices, Formal Consensus, and Design, we went to work. Action research in our communities, storytelling, and study of model schools resulted in this published School Plan:

The Design Team will reconvene in January to continue this work - we'd love your feedback on this vision!

Federated microblogging for academics

Scholar Social is a microblogging platform for researchers, grad students, librarians, archivists, undergrads, academically inclined high schoolers, educators of all levels, journal editors, research assistants, professors, administrators—anyone involved in academia who is willing to engage with others respectfully.

We strive to be a safe space for queer people and other minorities in academia, recognizing that there can only be academic freedom where the existence and validity of interlocutors' identities is taken as axiomatic.

"An academic microblog that you can be proud to put on the last slide of a presentation at a conference"

"Official" monthly journal club!

(Participation is, of course, optional)

Scholar Social features a monthly "official" journal club, in which we try to read and comment on a paper of interest.

Any user of Scholar Social can suggest an article by sending the DOI by direct message to @socrates@scholar.social and one will be chosen by random lottery on the last day of the month. We ask that you only submit articles that are from *outside* your own field of study to try to ensure that the papers we read are accessible and interesting to non-experts.
