La escuela del mañana, por Francesco Tonucci - 2 views

  •  
    El último módulo de este curso "OpenKnowledge Changing the Global Course of Learning" se centra en el pasado y futuro del Conocimiento Abierto. Desde aquí, he querido compartir las reflexiones de Francesco Tonucci hacia la escuela del futuro, donde, entre sus puntos importantes, evita también el uso de libros de texto y aulas cerradas y propone una escuela democrática, participativa y colaborativa, con aprendizaje por descubrimiento y pensamiento crítico capaz de formar a personas felices. Promueve un aprendizaje basado en proyectos no centrados en libros de textos estancos, sino construyendo el material o buscándolo entre los recursos que hoy día tenemos disponible. En una concepción de escuela como la de Tonucci, precisamente que la información pueda ser de acceso libre para todos permite reforzar la idea de una escuela nueva formando a personas felices y competentes.

Parents' Guide to Early Years Online | Free eBook | Download Now - 0 views

    Digital Debut The world knows that your baby is a boy, thanks to Twitter. The Instagrammed ultrasound photo shows him sucking his thumb. Your Facebook post gives his due date as August 28, so he'll either be one of the oldest or youngest in his class when he gets to school - and that's all before he's been born, much less before you start shopping for his first lunch box.

THE FUTURE OF THE BOOK - 11 views

  •  
    The year I graduated high school, the media was overrun with speculation about a new technology set to shake the foundation of the world. What was it? We weren't told, exactly. All we knew was that code name "IT" was so revolutionary that we would have to rebuild our cities from scratch.

    Thank you for sharing. I also heard that many universities are getting rid of their printed textbooks and only using e-texbook due to high prices that students have to pay for their printed textbooks. They may order in the printed textbook, but majority of schools are going digital.

    Thank you for sharing this resource. This reminds me of a news article I read before, which is "Apple Announces E-Book Store". According to that news article, Apple announced the create of iBook store in Apple's event in Jan 27 2010, hoping to reshape the e-book industry with a vast selection of electronic books in iBook. Electronic books offered in iBook store are around the same price as Amazon's Kindle platform, but with much more functions and convenience. Taking the form of iPad, and with the support of five largest publishers in the world, iBook offers the electronic version of various books and ebbeds multimedia such as photos, videos, and audio files into books, which is revolutionary. Therefore, the rapid development of technology has promoted the rapid changes and upgrading in book industry. From traditional physical books that we buy from retailers or borrow from libraries, to the online book sellers who sell both physical books and electronic books, to today, ebook stores in portable and mobile devices, how we read, when we read, where we read, and what we read have been transformed to a large extent.

    This is a good article. Sometimes, we think new technology will be a disrupted tech to kill and totally replace old industry.But actually, for old industry, the market will shrink a lot ,but won't totally disappear.

    What's going to happen with printed books?
  •  
    It depends on which side of the fence is one sitting on. The truth is the book is here to stay.
  •  
    It is interesting that whenever a new innovation is introduced, the current one is declared dead before its final time arrives. Books in whatever format are appealing to different audiences for various reasons. To think that the introduction of e-books was going to lead to a declaration of war on printed books is laughable. Books will be with us for as long as we are still in this world. Does format matter? only time will tell.

    Long back Lancaster wrote about paperless society but still we are heavily depending on paper only. Technology has fast evolved. First we talked about e-libraries then virtual libraries and now contemplating cloud based libraries. Many technologies have come and gone but paper is still ubiquitous.

9 models to scale open data - past, present and future | Open Knowledge Foundation Blog - 5 views

  •  
    The possibilities of open data have been enthralling us for 10 years. I came to it through wanting to make Government really usable, to build sites like TheyWorkForYou. But that excitement isn't what matters in the end. What matters is scale - which organisational structures will make this movement explode?

The Diamond Model of Open Access Publishing: Why Policy Makers, Scholars, Universities,... - 1 views

  •  
    "The debate on open access is a debate about the future of academia. We discuss the problems of for-profit academic publishing, such as monopoly prices and access inequalities and point at the limits of contemporary perspectives on open access as they are frequently advanced by the publishing industry, policy makers and labour unions.

Libraries test a model for setting monographs free - University World News - 1 views

  •  
    Librarians love to get free books into the hands of scholars and students who need them. Publishers love it when their books find readers - but they also need to cover the costs of turning an idea into a finished monograph.

¿Resuelve el conocimiento abierto nuestros problemas? - 2 views

    "¿Es el conocimiento abierto una tendencia para el público en general o es por contra una ocupación de especialistas?"
  • ...1 more comment...

    Sí y no. No cabe duda que el conocimiento abierto favorece la diseminación de todo tipo de información, Pero, precisamente por la gran cantidad de información disponible, se pierden los filtros necesarios de calidad y pueden hacer que nos despistemos en nuestro objetivo principal leyendo mucha "paja" y artículos de relleno que pueden rozar el auto-plagio. Pero, aún así, en general, es mejor tener esa información de libre acceso, y utilizar herramientas informáticas para realizar una primera selección burda de información y, más adelante, a la información que ha sido filtrada de esa manera, volver a filtrarla ya con conciencia propia por cada usuario, en función de las necesidades que tenga en cada momento y de lo que considere más o menos relevante para su investigación, inquietud, necesidad, etc.
  •  
    Estoy de acuerdo pero debemos ser capaces de filtrar la información para no perdernos en la gran cantidad de información a la que tenemos de libre acceso.
  •  
    Tal vez no los resuelva, como se cita en el documento, pero también estoy de acuerdo en que debemos ser críticos, para darle valor a todo tipo de información.

Publishing: The Economist Publishes an Online Essay About the Future of the Book - 3 views

  •  
    "The five-chapter essay (5000+ words) is titled, "From Papyrus to Pixels: The Digital Transformation Has Only Just Begun" and is available in web or book-like formats. It can also be listened to. It includes several charts and a bibliography is also included."
  •  
    Very good essay about the future of books. I particularly liked chapter two where you get a kind of mixed image of the current state of the book; on the one hand, it is stated that e-book sales are declining to the benefit of the physical book, but on the other hand it discusses how giants like Amazon has a very negative effect on the book business. Interesting for sure!
