Welcome to the *cough* January Episode! Absolutely not published late. It’s pretty topical, but topical if you remember January 2021 – and that might as well have been last century at this point. In this episode we’ll be looking at the Beandad twitterstorm in a teacup, and using it to think about constructivism, our own… Continue reading How can you make constructivism amount to more than a hill of beans?
This is a special mailbox episode, at the request of Scott R. Cowan who asked us to demystify Ontology, Epistomology, Positivism and Interpretivism. Not only will we lift the veil on the terms and show you how they fit together, but we’ll also give you the mental equipment you need to erase poorly written CG… Continue reading Mailbox Magic – How do Ontology and Epistomology help you kill JarJar Binks with headcannons?
In the third and final part of our lockdown schedule ruining miniseries, ‘WHERE’S MY HOVERBOARD?!’, we pick through some of our favourite articles from the 2020 Innovating Pedagogy Report , exploring Posthumanism, Esports in education – and most importantly how gosh darned much we love Red Dwarf. I’m not kidding. I easily trimmed twenty straight… Continue reading Dave Lister, Modern Day Socrates? Can we smash the 2020 Innovating Pedagogy report in to Red Dwarf?
Now here’s a Brucie bonus for you – it’s a pedagogy 2 for the price of 1 special!

This week Mike surprises Mark with a cheeky question he didn’t see coming – How do Blade Runner’s replicants rebel using the Montessori Method? Will his powerful edu-brain be able to process this, and a cult classic sci-fi thriller all at once? Will Mike be a bit skeptical, and then ultimately come to regret it?… Continue reading PopCulture Pedagogy Collision! Blade Runner smashes in to Montessori method
This episode we answer the bloody stupid question – Why does Obi-Wan Kenobi lie to children? To answer that we’ll be looking in to some cool behind the scenes Star Wars guff, and Ian Stewart’s fabulous label for the technical porkers used in teaching. Is Star Wars a bottomless pedagogic analogy well? You betcha. If… Continue reading Why does Obi-Wan Kenobi lie to children?
This week we answer the question: ‘How can Lois Lane use good web writing principles to teach Metropolis Superman’s secret identity?’ To answer these we’ve called in hard bitten, soft voiced, mercenary for hire Paul Hoffman – who’ll be deploying the kryptonite of years of editorial experience to the fragile kryptonian flesh of Mike and… Continue reading Lois Lane destroys Superman with Web Writing Principles
This week we answer the bloody stupid question, ‘What is Ghost in the Shell’s Major problem with Technology Enhanced Learning?’. And boy oh boy do we try and answer it. Our sleep deprived brains use Sian Bayne’s excellent paper ‘What the matter with Technology Enhanced Learning’ to try and hamfistedly smash these two seemingly disparate… Continue reading Ghost in the TEL
This week Mike is joined by Liz Ellis as we look at Critical Digital Pedagogy through the lens of Starfleet, the Prime Directive, and the best (insert hate mail here) series of Star Trek. Is Critical pedagogy a massive subject in itself? Would it have been more sensible to do a separate episode on that… Continue reading How does the Critical Digital Pedagogy help Starfleet boldly go where no one has gone before?
