Monday November 25: The Pencil

Via Present & Correct

What are the pencil’s affordances and limitations?  How might this most rudimentary of tools inform our thinking and the way we relate to other texts, other people, and our environments? How do its qualities help us think anew about all the other tools we’ve examined this semester? 

Tools used: Throughout today’s class, I’ll provide an array of pencils that we’ll user-test while taking notes, and then we’ll assess the various models’ merits. Yes, this is supposed to be ridiculous.
