Citizen Sociolinguistics:A New Media Methodology for Understanding Language and Social Life
Betsy Rymes

Citizen sociolinguistics is a response to the need for a new sociolinguistic methodology that accounts for and partakes of the social demands and affordances of massive mobility and connectivity in today’s world. Drawing from contemporary theories about participatory culture (Jenkins, Purushotma, Wiegel, Clinton, & Robison, 2009), orders of indexicality (Silverstein, 2003), and communicative repertoire (Rymes, 2011), as well as the decades-old tradition of citizen science, Citizen sociolinguistics traces the ways citizens, more so than trained sociolinguists, understand the world of language around them. The goal of this article, and the methodology it proposes, is to document, learn from, and advocate for the importance of this public participation in sociolinguistic inquiry and exploration and its potential to illuminate our contemporary communicative environment.

Why I Blog - The Atlantic
"For centuries, writers have experimented with forms that evoke the imperfection of thought, the inconstancy of human affairs, and the chastening passage of time. But as blogging evolves as a literary form, it is generating a new and quintessentially postmodern idiom that’s enabling writers to express themselves in ways that have never been seen or understood before. Its truths are provisional, and its ethos collective and messy. Yet the interaction it enables between writer and reader is unprecedented, visceral, and sometimes brutal. And make no mistake: it heralds a golden era for journalism."

The Myth of Chinese Super Schools by Diane Ravitch | The New York Review of Books
China, he writes, is “a perfect incarnation of authoritarian education.” It is no model for the United States:

As traditional routine jobs are offshored and automated, we need more and more globally competent, creative, innovative, entrepreneurial citizens—job creators instead of employment-minded job seekers. To cultivate new talents, we need an education that enhances individual strengths, follows children’s passions, and fosters their social-emotional development. We do not need an authoritarian education that aims to fix children’s deficits according to externally prescribed standards.

If the West is concerned about being overtaken by China, then the best solution is “to avoid becoming China.”

Doing Research with Children and Young People (Published in association with The Open University): 9780761943815: Medicine & Health Science Books @
'The author gives an excellent overview and explores how children have been seen as objects and subjects in research as well as increasingly as participants and more recently still as researchers.'

- International Journal of Research and Method in Education

'This book is especially beneficial in terms of its breadth of discussion on the legal, ethical and moral issues of conducting research with children and young people alongside the key methodological challenges that students and practitioners are faced when conducting this type of research' - Research Policy and Planning

Doing Research with Children and Young People introduces researchers to the key considerations involved in working with children and young people.

The book highlights issues which arise at different stages in the process and which all researchers need to take account of as they plan and carry out a study. These include:

· ethical and legal issues

· philosophical underpinnings of research

· age and diversity of the children involved

· evaluation and dissemination of findings.

Doing Research with Children and Young People has been developed to accompany The Open University course Research with Children and Young People (EK310). It is an ideal introduction for all students and practitioners preparing to research in fields such as education, health, welfare, childhood and youth studies, psychology and sociology.

What if we used adventure and curiosity as more of what we call school?
Excellent call to action and analysis by Bo here. I would add that all kids are looking out the window of the school architecture which exists to hold them inside. we must open the doors and windows to the world-- to exploration to exploration
