» Outside Looking In | Kate Says - 0 views

  • I’m going to do the classy thing and close comments here - go show Jon some blogger love and tell HIM how you feel - he’s the one who started all of this……
    • Vicki Davis
       
      Don't ever close the comments! The conversation doesn't BELONG to anyone! It just doesn't - we can talk any place, anywhere that we want!
    • Diane Hammond
       
      It's more natural for people to comment at whatever point (or place) they are pulled into the conversation.
  •  
    Added some annotations to this -- I highly suggest that bloggers don't close comments! The conversation belongs to all of us and should take place anywhere it takes place. See Kate's blog for more.

    I don't think it is necessary to close comments -- I'm frustrated I cannot respond to Kate's note about closing comments!

mogopop | How to use Mogopop - 0 views

shared by anonymous on 06 Apr 08 - Cached
  •  
    This lets you create an account to make ipod tutorials. This is free and there are several educational videos already there including this mogo on how to use mogo from the 18th ITSC 07 (Innovative Technology Schools Conference). Education is moving to ipods and cell phones -- it is the next major progression. Perhaps 1:1 ipod projects are next?

    More ability to use handheld devices is emerging with this website that lets you create tutorials and information via ipod.

Libraries Shun Deals to Place Books on Web - New York Times - 0 views

  • Open Content Alliance
  • , a nonprofit effort aimed at making their materials broadly available.
  • Libraries that agree to work with Google must agree to a set of terms, which include making the material unavailable to other commercial search services. Microsoft places a similar restriction on the books it converts to electronic form. The Open Content Alliance, by contrast, is making the material available to any search service.
  • ...5 more annotations...
  • Many prominent libraries have accepted Google’s offer — including the New York Public Library and libraries at the University of Michigan, Harvard, Stanford and Oxford. Google expects to scan 15 million books from those collections over the next decade.
  • many in the academic and nonprofit world are intent on pursuing a vision of the Web as a global repository of knowledge that is free of business interests or restrictions.
  • libraries and researchers worry that if any one company comes to dominate the digital conversion of these works, it could exploit that dominance for commercial gain.
  • “One is shaped by commercial concerns, the other by a commitment to openness, and which one will win is not clear.”
  • The Open Content Alliance is the brainchild of Brewster Kahle, the founder and director of the Internet Archive, which was created in 1996 with the aim of preserving copies of Web sites and other material.
  •  
    This New York Times article on the Open Content Alliance is an essential article for librarians and media specialists to read. It is also important for those following the fight for information and control of that information. In this case, the Open Content Alliance wants to make books that they scan available to any search engine while Microsoft and google are aggressively approaching libraries for exclusive access to their content. (which could be rescanned by another later, possibly.) Librarians and media specialists should understand this... when will people approach schools to scan annuals or student produced works? Maybe that is a while off, but for now, be aware that it is probably inevitable.

Sloan-C - Publications - Survey Reports - 0 views

  • Only 4.6 percent of Chief Academic Officers agreed that there are no significant barriers to widespread adoption of online learning. Nearly two-thirds of the academic leaders cite the need for more discipline on the part of online students as a critical barrier. Faculty issues, both acceptance of online and the need for greater time and effort to teach online, are also important barriers. Neither a perceived lack of demand on the part of potential students nor the acceptance of an online degree by potential employers was seen as a critical barrier.

Safer Children in a Byron World | Aylesbury LIFE - 0 views

  • "Safer Children in a Digital World", requested by UK PM
  • a sudden outbreak of common sense.
  • To give you a flavour I quote: "At a public swimming pool we have gates, put up signs, have lifeguards and shallow ends, but we also teach children how to swim." Oh, so we don't drain the swimming pool of water, then?!
  •  
    This is just a flier introducing report requested by UK PM and authored by child psychologist. The report itself is quite long -- I dare say I will blog again when I have read it.
  •  
    Just blogged this: a new UK perspective on child safety online more objective than most -- a sudden outbreak of common sense even -- let us hope it prevails

ABC News: Could MySpace Be Your Kid's Social Key? - 0 views

  • They're very self-motivated.
    • Vicki Davis
       
      Quite the opposite of what many are saying -- I agree with this.
  • This world encourages us to multitask. I think it encourages kids to be much less patient. More terse.
  • This generation spends time at home — connected. Kids have to be social. It's all part of the preteen and teen years and young adult years
  • ...2 more annotations...
  • Because they have a combination of people they know face-to-face in the real world and people they don't, (those of the Net generation) get a lot of chances to bounce ideas and to test out things on a social network that they probably wouldn't do face-to-face.
    • Vicki Davis
       
      And we need to make networks so they can bounce of ideas related to a novel or something they are learning in school too.
  • Larry Rosen, professor of psychology at California State University-Dominguez Hills, has long studied "the Net generation," the first to have grown up with the Internet, not to mention cellphones. In Me, MySpace and I: Parenting the Net Generation (Palgrave Macmillan), he helps parents understand social networks. His advice: Talk to your kids, learn the technology and don't panic. USA TODAY's Janet Kornblum spoke with the author.
  •  
    This is an interesting article that presents some interesting commentary on students today. It is very brief but makes some excellent points.
  •  
    Alice shared this earlier, but I went back and added annotations AND the tagging standard -- this will show up in the links and make this article rise to the top as we discuss it.
