Welcome to my “Better Schools” series:

This blog documents my experience of “catching up” on education research, from a passive interest to intentional, developed awareness of subtopics, trends, and lexical topology.

I started with the collection of bookmarks I’d casually gathered up to this point. These were placed on a timeline, visualizing my accumulation of data over time, which allowed me to see how little I actually knew compared to how much I felt I ought to know.

I set out to intensively gather a new, deeper understanding — gathering data by indexing, scoring, and distilling the cumulative body of research available on Academia.edu.
