Touchscreen technology is good for kids? - 0 views

    A lot of kids use smartphones or tablet everyday, and they even do not need their parents to tell them how to use these devices, it is like kids have the innate ability to use the technological devices. There are debates on whether touchscreen technology is good or bad for kids. For my personal opinion, touchscreen technology would make them lack communication skill and social skill. However, by providing sound effects, colours and moving objects on the screen, it could get kids' attention and interest to learn something they feel really boring such as math, by this way they could learn faster and understand better. Therefore, touchscreen technology is not totally bad or good for kids, it depends on how parents help kids to balance how much time they could spend on touchscreen technology. It seems the only way for kids, because they are too young to have self control.

Technology leaves teens speechless - - 1 views

    In this article, Barker believes that technology has somehow become harmful to communicate in person among teenagers. Teens prefer to write to each other such as pick up their phones to ping each other, communicating by texting though instant messaging and social networking sites like Facebook, Twtter rather than talking to each other in person. Thus this has given out a general that is technology has become a problem in communication since cell phone has become widely used in society. Therefore, within the development in cell phone technology, smartphone was invented, which a mobile phone is built on a mobile computing platform that not only a communication tool to make phone call or text message but also allows people to go on internet or play game for their pastime. Hence this with the development for technology, people spends more time on their smartphones rather than having interaction between people which has become an issue in our life. By reading this article, it leads my thought to online education. Being honest, I enjoy the in person discussion rather than online written discussion however digital platform has provided a convenient way for people to share their ideas. However this article did raised a good question, technology makes everything easier for people but does it somehow hurt the communication among people?

Open Data developments in Asia | Open Knowledge Foundation Blog - 1 views

    This blog about Open Data Developments in Asia analyses the recent state of Open Data adopted in Asia and highlights some of the 11 Asian countries participants that attended the Open Knowledge Conference in Geneva in 2012. Of the 11 countries that attended the conference, the author of the post focuses on the East Asian and Pacific countries such as New Zealand, Australia, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, Vietnam, Indonesia, Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar and discusses their state and role in Openness. The author does a good job at providing statistics of the different countries in terms of the Worldbank Knowledge Economy Index (KEI), which analyzes the economic rankings of countries. The author then compares economic rank to that of openness, stating that countries low on the economic rank contribute little to no open data within their own countries or externally to other countries.
    Next, the author talks about the overall internet penetration in Asia as being only 27.5 percent and in that statistic, there is still a wide gap between North and South East Asia in terms of internet use and information distribution and acquisition from citizens and others.
    Moreover, the author continues to compare how many social, economical, political and cultural influence information distribution, contribution and acquisition in Asia countries. Openness is growing in the more developed Asian countries, but openness is limited, or even nonexistent, in developing (authoritative) countries.
    After reading this article, I've had a greater understanding of the current state of Open Data in Asia an the influences that contribute to enabling Openness. What I expected from the blog post or something that would've made the post even better could be some examples or projects of Openness or Open Data in Asia.

Information Geographies - 1 views

    Many interesting charts and data of the global internet use, access, and contributions
  • ...1 more comment...
    Cool!! It's so valuable to see behind the scenes of a lot of the open (or closed) tools we use. These images, maps, and infographics are really neat and use a lot of data that probably gets forgotten about in a lot of discussions. Thanks for posting!
    Atlas, publications, charts and tables of global information and internet geographies and impacts on information access, information production and information distribution, done over a four year period by Oxford Information Institute. Findings, data, and publication will be published in Open Access formats and platforms.
    The website is simple but contains lots of information relevant to the topics in Stanford. There are links to external related publications about information geography, access, distribution and production. Very good website. Some limitations include: bias from the two developers and producers as well as institution itself, unknown (not identified) contributors and sponsors.
    A very valuable collection demonstrating how economic, political, cultural and linguistic ties impact the flow of knowledge is and information. Of course, such charts do little to explain, why this happens and where a more even distribution of knowledge is desirable. Also, the data that lies behind the visualisations is not always open.
    Especially vauable are the links to the data collections that are accessible.

    The different approach needed to market traditional educational resources and OER
    Thank you for sharing.
    The article highlight a real-life problem. I am sure in my country many faculty members and librarians of higher educational establishment are not aware of OER and therefore they prefer safe and sure textbooks.
    Librarians should be first to explore, understand and market this type of resources.
    At the same time time may be needed in order to change educational policy and choice of textbooks.

    Blogs are used as educational resources and we can have our blog nowadays for free.
    Very useful, thank you. I made two free websites not long ago and then two days later, the company sent me messages that to keep them I had to pay for the service. Then it is not free, is It?
    Sometimes 'free' meens that you should pay money latter of for best services.

    Una aplicación muy interesante que promueve la integración de los estudiantes con discapacidad auditiva en un aula, ya que permite la traducción simultánea de los fonemas y las palabras al lenguaje de signos.

    Muchas gracias por la aportación.
    Conozco al profesor que ha llevado a cabo la investigación, Dr. Vicente Arévalo, y sé de su capacidad de innovación. En este caso, la aplicación es capaz de responder a una necesidad básica: la inclusión de aquellos individuos con discapacidad en un aula, de manera que todos puedan convivir en un clima de armonía y normalidad. La inmediata traducción de voz a lenguaje Braille facilita este hecho y permite dar un paso más en la realidad perseguida de una Escuela Inclusiva.
    Conozco al profesor que ha ideado el proyecto, Dr. Vicente Arévalo, así como su capacidad para innovar y trabajar. La aplicación cubre un hueco fundamental en la búsqueda de una Escuela Inclusiva, al permitir a personas con discapacidad (en este caso, auditiva), poder participar de manera natural en la dinámica de un aula, interaccionando con el resto de sus compañeros. Ello se consigue gracias a esta aplicación, que permite realizar una traducción simultánea e inmediata del lenguaje hablado al lenguaje Braille, haciendo más próxima la realidad de una completa escuela inclusiva.
