      When is Hypothes.is going to branch out into the business of professional readers to add aids to texts?! :)

      Link this to the professional summary industry that reads books and summarizes them for busy executives

    1. Software as a Service (SaaS)

      This is supposed to be a privacy policy for completing a survey not a SaaS product?

    2. Under current data protection legislation you have the right to access information held about you. Any access request will be subject to a reasonable fee to meet our costs in providing you with details of the information we hold about you.

      Not only is the information held about me a 'transferable asset' but MARu group will charge you to find out what has been collected about you.

    3. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

      Transmission is at my own risk. So as a gesture of goodwill, if I complete the survey, my personal information will be transferred outside of EU and is at risk of being shared with third parties (unknown) and yet, I am responsible for the risk?

    4. In the event that we sell or buy any business or assets, in which case we will disclose your personal data to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets.

      Why? I came across this privacy policy as I had been asked to respond to a survey about the website. Not only am I giving my feedback for free but then they want to take my personal information and give it away to unknown buyers and sellers (third parties) all of whom are fictitious and in the future?

    5. any phone number used to call our customer service number

      This would be information outside of the use of the website? The phone number used to contact (via phone) Does that mean you are collecting information not from the site but any information that connects to the business?

    6. we have carefully weighed your interests and fundamental rights and freedoms against our clients’ interest to process your information and are satisfied that we are justified in processing your information for this purpose

      It would be nice to know the criteria by which this evaluation was made?

    1. I also felt that, for this particular learning goal, making observations of students during workshop was the most authentic and reliable way to assess their learning.

      Agreed. Do you think that at some point students could assess their own growth? Did you ask students to reflect on the this process? Do they see value in it? Are they able to point to moments in the process where they might have realized "before you spoke to me I realized that I ...."?

    2. (or no responses at all),

      This is a challenge for me. I consistently have students who will not speak in class discussions, literature circles, or other group activities. There are work arounds for these students, but I am curious to know if you also have students who will not speak and what your response is.

    3. that were related to, but not directly about, the learning goal.

      This is terrific. It's necessary to include those norms or workflow or process pieces that support the learning but that aren't part of the learning goal. In fact, I wonder how often these related pieces become 1) the focus of the learning or 2) the reason why we don't use pedagogical approaches like workshop?

    4. My process to do this worked as follows

      I bet I'm not the only member of your PLN who would love to see this process, Brian. Every year I think about videotaping my teaching. The benefits would be many, but one think the videos would capture are those establishing lessons: The setting of routines, generating success criteria, and other foundational lessons that we later circle back to and build on but that can become invisible.

    5. now I’ll say that without success criteria, I think it would be difficult to make focused observations. Without success criteria, I think it would be easy to be distracted by other things that might be connected, but not directly related to the focus of the learning.

      So true. I have often considered the work we have done in the past eight years on success criteria as not only important for students to know where they are going, but equally important for teachers. Long before Growing Success (Ontario's Assessment and Evaluation Policy Document) made educators aware of the value of developing success criteria with students, I recall generating lists of criteria that I used when evaluating work so that I would evaluate the same things on each task. So, I would stay focused.

    6. The assessment was based on students participating in writing workshop groups.

      I am a big fan of student self-assessment; however, the skill required to assess oneself in speaking, presenting, and as a feedback provider needs to be highly developed. This is an area that students may not yet be able to adequately or appropriately assess themselves.

    1. “transmission”

      The word transmission implies very much a learn/repeat flow where there is little input or exchange. When observations are taking place with anticipation of participating, children are strategizing efficient ways of obtaining a goal without repeating.

    1. I don't think the letter is solely unusual because Emma writes about love. Catharine Sedgwick wrote sexual entries in her journal during the same time period. I think both Emma's letter and Catharine's journal entry simultaneously reflect the freedom women had to express their views on romance while also revealing some of the negative consequences of Romanticism for women. Both pieces show the burdens placed on women now that they have almost the sole responsibility for choosing their husbands based on romantic values.
