[Xmca-l] Re: Teachers and Facebook



Yeah -- two orientations occupying the same space -- I've taught an applied research course (empirical lead up to a thesis in a now defunct program) and students who are practicing teachers usually have studied their own setting in some way, all too often with conflict between arising between teaching and research. Here it might be two orientations occupying the same person-space.

Nice to see your voice, Bill.

This seems like a perfect project for a Communication scholar who thought CHAT was a useful analytic tool. In after-school institutions that are supposed to be helpful to kids' development there is a constant pressure to "make sure that nothing bad (e.g., unlawful, immoral...) happens." Our activities are organized to maximize the possibility of "good things"
happening. When the two orientations occupy the same space, things certainly get interesting.
