  • Nicholas Carr, now best known for “The Shallows,” a book critical of the Internet, said the Kindle would never succeed because, unlike the iPod, there was little content available for it.

The New Value of Text | booktwo.org - 0 views

  • Velocity, depth, breadth. These are the dimensions we can add to books, that are the gifts of a digital age, not gimmicks, glossy presentation and media-catching stunts. The text works. It stands and speaks for itself. It is not what we need to change.

Larry Sanger Blog » On Robinson on Education - 0 views

  •  
    First, let me say, that the video design is very cool.  Moreover, Sir Ken Robinson is quite an excellent public speaker.  Finally, I agree with him entirely that standardization is the source of a lot of our educational difficulties.  But much of the rest of his message is irritatingly wrong.

Information Architects - Writer for iPad - 0 views

  •  
    The key to good writing is not that magical glass of Bordeaux, the right kind of tobacco or that groovy background music. The key is focus. What you need to write well is a spartan setting that allows you to fully concentrate on your text and nothing but your text. Many professional writers use SimpleText or Textedit because these are the only writing programs that are totally distraction free. But text editors are not perfect. That's why we made Writer.

Books in Browsers : annotations et lecture sociale | SoBookOnline - 0 views

  • Si seuls Google et Amazon arrivent donc aujourd’hui à faire pointer directement, à partir d’une url, un fragment qui aura circulé sur le web (site, réseaux sociaux, etc.) vers sa position exacte dans le texte auquel il renvoie, c’est (en partie) parce que ces plateformes sont fermées et imposent une vision figée du texte.

Histoire du livre: Qu'est-ce qu'une bibliothèque? - 0 views

  • depuis toujours, on conserve dans les bibliothèques toutes sortes d’objets qui ne sont pas des livres, ni même parfois des documents écrits, du document d’archives aux objets de curiosités, aux peintures, bustes et sculptures, aux collections de numismatique, sans parler des nouveaux supports (DVD, etc.) et des nouveaux médias
  • Selon le sens littéral (…), ce mot signifie un lieu destiné pour y mettre des livres. Une bibliothèque est un lieu plus ou moins vaste, avec des tablettes ou des armoires, où les livres sont rangés sous différentes classes: nous parlerons de cet ordre à l’article CATALOGUE.
  • Dans sa définition implicite, la bibliothèque fonctionne ainsi comme une structure de rassemblement, d’organisation et de mise à disposition du savoir. C’est la double articulation, de l’espace physique et du contenu abstrait qui caractérise la bibliothèque moderne.
  • ...2 more annotations...
  • Une bibliothèque (…) est une organisation du savoir qui fonctionne comme un bassin de décantation où la plus extrême diversité des publications se trouve passée au crible d’une superposition de filtres (…): l’agencement des salles, le classement en rayons, les fichiers, les thesauri, etc. À la surface: les ouvrages de référence, synthétiques, consensuels et pérennes; dans les tréfonds: les productions les plus singulières, les moins orthodoxes, les plus difficiles à trouver et à obtenir aussi; entre les niveaux extrêmes: un étagement et une répartition des connaissances sous-tendus par une conception encyclopédique du monde.
  • Le glissement vers le contenu des livres est devenu plus rare, mais il est apparemment plus ancien

Reading in a Whole New Way | 40th Anniversary | Smithsonian Magazine - 0 views

  • America was founded on the written word.
  • the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence and, indirectly, the Bible
  • Being able to read silently to yourself was considered an amazing talent. Writing was an even rarer skill. In 15th-century Europe only one in 20 adult males could write.
    • Michel Roland-Guill
       
      Vision technicisée et progressiste des pratiques de l'écriture, où il est assez naturel de retrouver relayé le mythe de la rareté de la lecture silencieuse dans l'Antiquité. Je crois avoir lu quelque part, et même en plusieurs endroits, que la connaissance et la pratique au moins rudimentaire de l'écriture était très répandue dans l'antiquité classique (grecque et romaine) au rebours de ce que soutient Kelly ici. Mais il s'appuie vraisemblablement sur des études sérieuses valant pour le 15e s. et dans sa vision linéaire d'un progrès fondé sur la succession des innovations techniques cela implique qu'on ne savait généralement pas écrire dans l'antiquité.Il n'est pas difficile de deviner combien une vision aussi simpliste, aussi simplement orientée de l'évolution des pratiques de la lettre est aujourd'hui, au moment où il nous faut évaluer une révolution nouvelle de ces pratiques est sinon nuisible au moins handicapante.

      Intéressant comme est ici condensé un imaginaire américain de la lettre. A remarquer que cet attachement au livre et à la chose écrite ne se double d'aucun intellectualisme, au contraire. La situation française est bien différentes et à plusieurs égards opposée. Au point qu'on peut se demander si la crise de la culture française ne s'explique pas, en partie et à ce niveau, par une contradiction entre ses éléments structurants et ceux de la culture américaine telle qu'elle est transmise par les médias de la culture populaire, cinéma et télévision au premier chef.
  • By 1910 three-quarters of the towns in America with more than 2,500 residents had a public library.

      Ici le coeur de la contradiction chez Kelly: la révolution numérique est appréhendée depuis le paradigme américain pré-révolution numérique qui oppose autorité et individualisme. Or la RN redistribue ici (peut-être plus qu'ailleurs) les cartes en contestant, en même temps que le rôle de l'autorité, l'individualisme libéral dont les historiens de la lecture ont montré qu'il s'est construit, depuis Augustin mais particulièrement à la Renaissance par le commerce singulier avec le livre.

Digital Natives, Digital Immigrants - 0 views

  • Our students have changed radically. Today’s students are no longer the people our educational system was designed to teach.  
  • A really big discontinuity has taken place.  One might even call it a "singularity"
  • Today’s students - K through college - represent the first generations to grow up with this new technology.
  • ...9 more annotations...
  • today's students think and process information fundamentally differently from their predecessors.
  • it is very likely that our students’ brains have physically changed - and are different from ours - as a result of how they grew up.  But whether or not this is literally true, we can say with certainty that their thinking patterns have changed.
  • our Digital Immigrant instructors, who speak an outdated language (that of the pre-digital age), are struggling to teach a population that speaks an entirely new language.  
  • Digital Natives are used to receiving information really fast.  They like to parallel process and multi-task.  They prefer their graphics before their text rather than the opposite. They prefer random access (like hypertext). They function best when networked.  They thrive on instant gratification and frequent rewards.  They prefer games to "serious" work. 
  • They have little patience for lectures, step-by-step logic, and "tell-test" instruction. 
  • Often from the Natives' point of view their Digital Immigrant instructors make their education not worth paying attention to compared to everything else they experience - and then they blame them for not paying attention! 
  • Smart adult immigrants accept that they don’t know about their new world and take advantage of their kids to help them learn and integrate.  Not-so-smart (or not-so-flexible) immigrants spend most of their time grousing about how good things were in the "old country."
  • As educators, we need to be thinking about how to teach both Legacy and Future content in the language of the Digital Natives.  The first involves a major translation and change of methodology; the second involves all that PLUS new content and thinking.  It's not actually clear to me which is harder - "learning new stuff" or "learning new ways to do old stuff."  I suspect it's the latter.  
  • My own preference for teaching Digital Natives is to invent computer games to do the job, even for the most serious content.

Is Google Making Us Smarter? - Internet - Search - Informationweek - 0 views

  • Carr's concern about the impact of the Internet on the way we think isn't misplaced. Small's research and other studies make it clear that the information explosion and the tools we employ to contain it affect cognition. But it will take time before it's clear whether we should mourn the old ways, celebrate the new, or learn to stop worrying and love the Net.

Nicholas G. Carr - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - 0 views

  • Carr originally came to prominence with the 2003 Harvard Business Review article "IT Doesn't Matter" and the 2004 book Does IT Matter? Information Technology and the Corrosion of Competitive Advantage (Harvard Business School Press). In these widely discussed works, he argued that the strategic importance of information technology in business has diminished as IT has become more commonplace, standardized and cheaper.
  • In 2005, Carr published the controversial [4] article "The End of Corporate Computing" in the MIT Sloan Management Review, in which he argued that in the future companies will purchase information technology as a utility service from outside suppliers.
  • Through his blog "Rough Type," Carr has been a critic of technological utopianism and in particular the populist claims made for online social production. In his 2005 blog essay titled "The Amorality of Web 2.0," he criticized the quality of volunteer Web 2.0 information projects such as Wikipedia and the blogosphere and argued that they may have a net negative effect on society by displacing more expensive professional alternatives.
