Impact of Social Sciences - Public libraries play a central role in providing access to... - 3 views

  •  
    "Data connectivity is intrinsic to most of our daily lives. The place which exists in almost every community large or small, rural or urban, is the public library. Ben Lee argues that not only do libraries provide free access to data, but they do so in an environment which is trustworthy and neutral, geared to learning. Access to digital technology increasingly overlaps with access to opportunity and it is important to recognise the role public libraries already play (and have always played) in keeping the gate to knowledge open.

Four critiques of open data initiatives - 5 views

  •  
    Open data initiatives may hold much promise and value, but more attention is needed on how these projects are developing as complex socio-technical systems. Rob Kitchin elaborates on four specific areas that have yet to be fully interrogated.

Open Access (or, why I love the internet) - 10 views

  •  
    The wonderful blog, Hack Library School, has recently posted a piece on open access publishing. This piece is a great overview, which covers many of the basic concepts covered in Module 6. The article discusses what open access is (and what it isn't) and some of the biggest discussion points on the issue today. It's a great overview and well worth the read if you want an overview or a refresher on the topic!

    Thanks for sharing this link. It includes a clear breakdown of what gold and green Open Access are and identifies some of the challenges of gold OA.
  •  
    Well, its a worth reading article. We can say about open access that its a peer-reviewed work that's published in full on the internet and available at no cost to readers and that helps the whole society. OA is today's need.
  •  
    Great link you shared, shows very well on the concepts covered in module 6 and shows an overview of assunto.Engloba and greatly enriches our knowledge.
  •  
    Excelent! thanks for the resource!
  •  
    Yes thank you for passing it on. As a librarian I'm happy to know more of us are out there and participating in the conversation.
  •  
    The internet is pretty awesome guys. Privacy attacks and trolls aside, no other tool humans have ever created can match its potential for information transfer. Sure, I often use it to watch cat videos and buy clothing I don't need, but it also supports one of the biggest developments in modern librarianship and one of...
  •  
    This blog covers a lot of relevant concepts related to OA, but a finer point need to be clarified. Regarding Google Scholar, not everything retrieved from GS is OA. GS is a web crowler, it crows wherever it is allowed, including references and citations to articles behind paywalls. On the other hand, many librarians are working to make their paid journals subscriptions available to their faculty and students via Google Scholar. So when faculty/students are on their universities' network, they can search GS, find articles from journals. If their library subscribes to that journal, there is a good chance a link to the full text will be available.

    I agree with the point that "findability" for green OA articles is a current problem. We need a PubMed or Web of Science for green OA articles!

Medical Education in the New Millennium - 3 views

  •  
    A really interesting course (also from Stanford Online) that has just started and I believe will be of interest to many doing Open Knowledge! "This interdisciplinary course features talks from thought leaders and innovators from medical education, instructional design, cognitive science, online learning, and emerging technology. Over the course of eleven weeks, we'll consider how to build educational experiences that address the unique learning preferences of today's Millennial medical students and residents. As the volume of new medical knowledge outpaces our ability to organize and retain it, how might educators disrupt outdated practices through thoughtful use of technology and learning design? How might MOOCs, social media, simulation and virtual reality change the face of medical education? How might we make learning continuous, engaging, and scalable in the age of increasing clinical demands and limited work hours? Joining the conversation will be experts from all health care and education stakeholder domains, including patients, and students from nursing, medicine and engineering sciences."
  •  
    You sold me and I signed up, this is exactly what I was looking for when I signed up for this course. Hoping to bring this into clinical research and improve the perceptions, understanding and participation to forward medical innovation.

Shule.Info - 0 views

  •  
    Shule.Info is a project that puts data about Tanzanian schools online, providing information for the overall country, regions, and individual schools. The website is also in both English and Swahili, the language of the majority of Tanzanians. This is a great attempt at making this open data accessible and understandable to the people to who need it. "We all know that education in Tanzania is in a state of crisis. Massive failure rates. Not enough teachers. Not enough books. Poor teaching. And many more problems. So what do you do if you are a parent, brother or sister and want to find a good school? What if you are a council or national government leader and want to track progress? Right now it is very difficult to do so, because data is not easily available. And when you can access data, it is very difficult to understand and use. Open data is in fact relevant to all of us in making beter decisions. It is not just a concept for technical experts. If we knew which medicines were available in our nearest health centres we would save ourselves wasted trips. If we had live traffic updates we could better plan our travel. And if we had data on school performance we would have the chance to make better decisions about our children's education and potentially shape the course of their future differently."

Arms race to liberate Africa's data - 1 views

  •  
    "Open data could add up to $3 trillion worth of economic activity per year worldwide, according to a study by McKinsey Consultants. But in the race to liberate thousands of data-sets from the government and business sectors, the African continent is seen as lagging behind. "
  •  
    If there is any continent that needs Open Data most, it is Africa. African needs transparency and accountability, which are the core foundation of Open Data, to create meaningful change on the continent. But making data available and Open is just the initial stage of accomplishing something. The challenge here is how to ensure that the people of Africa have knowledge of the information and are ABLE to ACCESS the information. What use is information when still limited Internet access, scarce electricity, and other ICT infrastructure, including language barriers continue to act as roadblocks to accessing Open data? Wow!! Just when I finished this short posting, the light went off. Couldn't access the Internet. Everything is dead. I have being waiting 30mins, 1hr, 2hrs, 2hrs 45mins … and now its 4hrs and my laptop battery power is running down. ALAS!! Finally power is restored after 4hrs 49mins for me to make my post. You feel me? This is not the exception, and this is not a coincidence but the norm

    Open source is the future. Obvs, Microsoft et.al. paved the way, but moving forward, the route to privacy and access is via free software that can be adapted on the fly.

Governance Of Science - 0 views

    This ground-breaking text offers a fresh perspective on the governance of science from the standpoint of social and political theory. Science has often been seen as the only institution that embodies the elusive democratic ideal of the 'open society'.

OPEN DATA COMMONS, A LICENSE FOR OPEN DATA - 3 views

  •  
    An interesting article arguing for the creation of open licenses for data. They make the point that the use of creative commons licenses is mistaken as these are designed for creative work not data or data bases. Unfortunately the argument - which is repeated several times - is not very thoroughly presented. The Talis Community License is mentioned as a possible alternative. The paper dates from 2008 and is thus - apart from the forceful argument for open licenses as the more viable alternative to the public domain - primarily of historical interest. Much progress has been made in the field with Open Data Commons Licenses now being an accepted standard as well as well as country specific licenses such as Open Government License UK, Open Government License Canada or Data License Germany (cf. http://opendefinition.org/licenses/).

How We Use Social Media for Informal Learning - 2 views

  •  
    From Topic: https://groups.diigo.com/group/okmooc/content/community-manager-12884327 By: https://www.diigo.com/profile/cvpido Vendors talk about social learning like its something revolutionary, but I'm here to tell you its not. Informal learning is an everyday thing. Social media tools are just another platform we use to learn from each-other and find information serendipitously.
  •  
    Ad Huikeshoven , I do agree with you. There is nothing new with social learning. In the african context,that was the way of learning through informal gatherings, story tellings around fire or while drinking some traditional beer. Otherwise we are just acknowledging that, there is plenty to learn from each other and through each other. The wheel can not be reinvented for sure.

    DOAJ is an online directory that indexes and provides access to quality open access, peer-reviewed journals. DOAJ es un directorio de revistas de acceso abierto, que tiene filtros por lenguaje, rama, país de publicación, año de publicación, y lo que me pareció más interesante, el tipo de licencia.

    Directory of Open Access Journals
  •  
    Es un recurso muy interesante, aunque personalmente suelo utilizar el ISI Web of Science, que considero más completo y relevante. Pero todos estos repositorios facilitan localizar adecuadamente la información sobre un autor, trabajo concreto o revista, y permite elegir, además, adecuadamente, la revista a la que mandar un trabajo de investigación que haya desarrollado uno mismo simplemente visitando tal directorio y viendo los topics que tiene cada una de las revistas.

    I like the directory as it will allow access to the type of information that the world needs at no cost at all. Well done!
