and edition.

In the interest of connecting with fellow learning technologists (and related) and building a community here, I’m starting a list. Toot me if you’re a learning technologist on Mastodon and would like to be added. Boost for visibility? TY! ^_^


@sonya @daibarnes @martinjc @philbarker @isabellgru @edtechdev @dajbelshaw @sahoward I would add @Downes and @cogdog and bunch of other folks on my /following page active on fediverse.

I am on one trunk group but I am leaning against mass follow list.

I don't even give OPML for my personal following page (there is a feed).

You can use the connections of others for guidance but one must build their own network.

Scholar Social

A Mastodon instance 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, recognizing that there can only be academic freedom where the existence and validity of interlocutors' identities is taken as axiomatic.

"A Mastodon profile 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 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.
