  1. I feel like ~teaching~ students about metadata might be a useful tool as well— digital literacy, thinking critically, etc. I do also appreciate systems that save time for teachers, though (being able to quickly search for pedagogical attributes or interaction style seems like a great help). In general, I see transparency becoming an even greater priority in education (since students and teachers alike have access to the same online resources and in some ways are equally doomed when it comes to the impossibility of absorbing all the information that there is to know in the world on any given day). So maybe transparency about metadata is part of that?

    1. I agree that transparency in regards to the learning process in general is becoming an increasingly greater priority in the shared meaning-making of modern classroom environments. I think taking a critical eye toward metadata is and should continue to be a part of that conversation as well.
