Do I Own My Domain If You Grade It? | EdSurge News

Interesting question to ask (and great that EdSurge is calling attention to A Domain Of One’s Own) but a bit rambling and incoherent. Lots of “I’m not arguing that…”

The first part of the last paragraph is spot-on:

‘Domains’ is radical not because it is a technological shift, but because it encourages a pedagogical shift. The domains project isn’t revolutionary to the traditional classroom, but it is revolutionary to a classroom reimagined around public scholarship, student agency and experimentation.

I’d say the thing missing from this article is the understanding that when student work is on the open web – no matter which domain it’s on – it’s qualitatively different from a printed assignment. Or one that resides within an LMS, for that matter.
