“Reverend” Jim “The Bava” Groom, alias “Snake Pliskin” is a charlatan and a fraud, a self-confessed “used car salesman” clawing his way into the glamour of the education technology keynote circuit via the efforts of his oppressed minions at the University of Mary Washington’s DTLT and beyond.

Taking Over the Means of Connected Production
The thing that excites me most about the web is the idea of taking back the means of cultural production, even if only for a moment. That’s probably why ds106 still remains the higlight of my time as an edtech. … Continue reading
