    Bud: I loved your presentation and the ‘make / hack / play ethic.” I appreciate the research citations you included about the value of after-school autonomy. Thanks so much for sharing your work and thinking. Very important vocabulary and concepts to apply from your presentation… I’m working on some pilot projects for Storychasers and will be sharing/utilizing both your preso as well as research citations/vocab suggestions with our participating teachers.

    I added a bunch of thoughts over at P2PU, but I wanted to say that Bud (once again) is pushing my thinking around how we define literacy and student agency. Which is cool.
