Bloom's Digital Taxonomy - 0 views

  •  
    Synopsis: This is an update to Bloom's Revised Taxonomy [2] to account for the new behaviours, actions and learning opportunities emerging as technology advances and becomes more ubiquitous. Bloom's Revised Taxonomy [2] accounts for many of the traditional classroom practices, behaviours and actions but does not account for the new processes and actions associated with web 2.0 technologies and increasing ubiquitous computing.

How do you manage your information? - 1 views

  • Managing resources is one of the most important skills for students (people!) to master. I started blogging in 2000 and have spent a significant amount of time trying to devise an information management system that I can use to make sense of a topic or discipline. I've attached an image below that highlights the process and tools that I use.
  • This system has a few weaknesses
  • 1. It fails to account for trend development and dissipation
  • ...3 more annotations...
  • 2. Too many aspects of my sensemaking system are manua
  • Information is not something that has value in itself. We use it to do something
  • What tools do you use?

    I have moved to fewer tools with the intention of increasing the depth of data held in those tools while reducing duplication.

Are Libraries the Hackerspaces of the Future? | Contact Un-conference - 0 views

  • Library Turns Hackerspace


    Perhaps you’ve heard the term hackerspace, or something along a similar vein, like makerspace, makerlab, or fab lab. Wikipedia defines it as


    “a location where people with common interests, usually in computers,technologyscience, or digital or electronic art can meet, socialise and/orcollaborate. Hackerspaces can be viewed as open community labs incorporating elements of machine shopsworkshops and/or studios where hackers can come together to share resources and knowledge to build and make things.”

  • How could we accelerate the rate of such hubs forming, where events, community, and DIY production collide? Where do you put them? Who funds them?

  • The other project, LibraryFarm, is a collective farm on ½ acre of public land run on the model of a public library. Anyone can “check out” a plot of land for no cost, plant what you want, and do what you want with your harvest. The idea is to promote “food literacy,” and rediscover the knowledge and empowerment that comes with learning how to grow food. This project is being led by Meg Backus and Thomas Gokey, who taught the “Innovation in Public Libraries” grad seminar at Syracuse University that also led to the above fabrication lab project.
