Here are a few links to my activities on the Web.

  • You will find my recent book, Enough:A Pedagogic Speculation, raises lots of questions about the direction of education and public life and shows how we can improve them with serious and sustained effort.
  • I contribute to Formative Justice, a blog "for the education and culture that all persons merit." I also write periodically at the Dewey Society's Social Issues blog.
  • I tweet at @robmcclintock, although not too frequently as I am inclined to paraphrase Wittgenstein--"whereof one speaks in 140 char, thereof one should be silent."
  • I have a 2.0 social presence, somewhat shy and reticent, on Facebook, on Google+, on LinkedIn, on Academia, on Goodreads, and on LibraryThing.
  • To interact, person-to-person, try email--no bots please!

If you want information about me, the Web has lots of that too:

  • In 2011, Joe Levine, a good writer working for Teachers  College, did a profile about me as "The Accidental Technologist."
  • A few years ago, I told my story in a few pages--what I anticipated then hasn't quite panned out, but it is true enough in spirit.
  • You can get the details of my professional career from my myCV.

Currently, I'm trying to network colleagues through a Collaboratory for Liberal Learning, so we can make our scholarship and criticism more effective in education and public affairs. Previously I tried something similar through, a wiki for explorations in education, communication, and culture. And before that, I devoted a lot of energy to building up the Institute for Learning Technologies.
