Confronting global knowledge production inequities - 2 views

  •  
    This is about the inequitable global power and how it dynamics the confronting global and production in nowadays.
  •  
    Underlying this notion of global knowledge production inequities is how developed countries "The Global North" dominate modern knowledge systems. This hegemonic control of global knowledge, driven by increased globalization, places pressure on virtually all societies to adopt global values knowledge services. While this development does have positive implications (e.g. better understknowledgeing of modern health practices, nutrition, environmental protection, governance systems, etc), on the negative side, the imposition of cultural forms from the developing world could be considered a form of political knowledge economic domination. This leads to the increasing homogenization of cultures knowledge a threat to local knowledge, knowledge the exacerbation of local differences knowledge inequalities through uneven access to such knowledge knowledge the means for it's application. The production of knowledge implicates knowledge is implicated in power relations, as those with superior technology cannot only generate but also store, monopolize knowledge disseminate knowledge to safeguard their interests. Foucault (1972) suggests that the relationship between power knowledge knowledge has its origin in the ownership of the means of material production knowledge technical expertise. According to Said (1978), Western powers in a colonial knowledge post-colonial context, using agents in developing countries, have been able to develop elaborate cultural knowledge political institutions where knowledge production exists with supporting mechanisms that dominate knowledge suppress African communities. In a critical examination of development policies knowledge programs in Africa, Okolie (2003) considers these to be shaped by knowledge knowledge assumptions about knowledge production that are primarily Euro-American centered, knowledge are consequently "exclusionary knowledge often contemptuous of other ways of knowing" (Okolie, 2003). The establishment of the continent's universities knowledge research centers was primarily driven by Western powers, knowledge the African elites who h

What is Knowledge? - YouTube - 2 views

  •  
    Knowledge is becoming an increasingly recognised asset within business. But what exactly is it? This short animation guides you through the main terms you'll come across when discussing Knowledge, including tacit Knowledge, explicit Knowledge, codification Knowledge diffusion.
  •  
    Back to basics. In order to evolve knowledge, we have to re-ask ourselves what we think it is.
  •  
    This video does a good explanation about the difference between data, information, information information. In our class discussions, we talked about the differences too, which I never knew there were any. So data is just the facts of the world, information is capturing data within the context, information information is what we know about plus our experiences.

    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 and and internet geographies and impacts on and access, and production and and distribution, done over a four year period by Oxford and Institute. Findings, data, and publication will be published in Open Access formats and platforms. The website is simple but contains lots of and relevant to the topics in Stanford. There are links to external related publications about and 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.

    Encontré un post relacionado con las Alfabetizaciones digitales y competencias fundamentales en http://futurosdellibro.com/alfabetizaciones-digitales-y-competencias-fundamentales/ Tal vez interese: El pasado 5 de marzo los expertos de UNESCO dedicados a la alfabetización mediática y digital, en reunión preparatoria de la siguiente World Summit of Information Societies, rubricaron lo que es una evidencia ya incontrovertible: que la alfabetización mediática e informacional (MIL. Media Information Information literacy) ocupa un lugar central en el mapa escolar de competencias del siglo XXI. Esto no es nada esencialmente nuevo: Viviane Reding, la hoy Vicepresidenta de la Comisión Europea y ex-comisaria de Información entre los años 2004-2009, declaraba en el año 2006: "Hoy, la alfabetización mediática es tan central para el desarrollo de una ciudadanía plena y activa como la alfabetización tradicional lo fue al inicio del siglo XIX". Y añadía: "también es fundamental para entrar en el nuevo mundo de la bInformationa ancha de contenidos, disponibles en todas partes y en cualquier momento". De acuerdo con el European Charter for Media Literacy podríamos distinguir siete áreas de competencias que, de una u otra forma, deberían pasar a formar parte de todo currículum orientado a su adquisición: Usar adecuadamente las tecnologías mediáticas para acceder, conservar, recuperar y compartir contenidos que satisfagan las necesidades e intereses individuales y colectivos. Tener competencias de acceso e información de la gran diversidad de alternativas respecto a los tipos de medios que existen, así como a los contenidos provenientes de distintas fuentes culturales e institucionales. Comprender cómo y porqué se producen los contenidos mediáticos. Analizar de forma crítica las técnicas, lenguajes y códigos empleados por los medios y los mensajes que transmiten. Usar los medios creativamente para expresar y comunicar ideas, información

    Thank you Kevin Stranack for sharing. Tony Bates ends with five questions: 1. Have I covered the main skills needed in a knowledge-based society? What have I missed? 2. Do you agree that these are important skills? If so, should universities explicitly try to develop them? 3. What are you or your university doing (if anything) to ensure such skills are taught, knowledge taught well? 4. What roles if any do you think technology, knowledge in particular online learning, can play in helping to develop such skills? 5. Any other comments on this topic - My answers: 1. Frustration tolerance knowledge keeping a balance between work knowledge private life is a necessary skill 2, The skill set mentioned is important, but more likely trained in college than in university 3. I do have a personal coach knowledge a counseler, knowledge I'm enrolled in #OKMOOC 4. The activities required in every module of #OKMOOC ask to reach out, connect, build relationships, Have you answered the feedback questions?
  •  
    This question is really the elephant in the room in a lot of university programs, especially in the humanities. I myself was a doctoral student in the humanities before leaving because, as I eventually learned, there were essentially no employment opportunities and my skillset in today's economy was sorely lacking. But the old mantra that "we teach critical thinking" is become a worn excuse. Do we really need four years to teach people the skills to survive "out there"? How much of our specialized and will really be useful outside of the academy? These are questions we just don't have the answer to, and I'm not sure there are many people willing to ask them. But more to the point, I didn't see anything in this link about the changing ways that millennials (I promise that I hate the term as much as anyone, but it's a useful one) are engaging with and, and how that is changing how they actually think. There have been arguments made that digital natives (again, a pretty terrible term) think about and process and in very different ways that have serious implications for contextualization and long-term research. I'm not saying that universities don't teach these things in their own ways, but it's an important issue that needs addressing. I know that the link talks about the important of and management, but there's a huge difference between simply knowing how and when to access and and quite another to properly contextualize its place in a larger hierarchy (or web) of and. I would argue *that* skill is the one that universities are best poised to provide, and maybe why we keep hearing talk about how undergraduate degrees are the new highschool diplomas.

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 and 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 and 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 and distribution and acquisition from citizens and others. Moreover, the author continues to compare how many social, economical, political and cultural influence and 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.

TEACHING AND LEARNING FOR A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE - 1 views

    Indigenous knowledge is unique to a culture or society. It shows us how to connect knowledge to sustain through the environment. This kind of knowledge is passed down to generation to generation. Back then our ancestors did not have Internet or computers to store or to share their ideas. Our ancestral knowledge is very fragile knowledge can easily be lost. knowledge is history knowledge our roots, which are passed down from our ancestors to us knowledge these knowledge should be kept knowledge be preserved. New knowledge is also valuable, but so is our past. Here is a site that helps us to learn about what Indigenous knowledge is knowledge activities to help us how to preserve Indigenous knowledge.
  •  
    It is a good idea. We should remember our indigenous knowledge knowledge pass it down to following generations. People without past can not value the present. We shouldn't let these knowledge be destroyed by fast knowledge on the internet.

Recap of 2014 Open Knowledge Festival | Opensource.com - 1 views

  •  
    I was lucky to be in Berlin with some colleagues earlier this month for the 2014 Open Knowledge Festival Knowledge associated fringe events. There's really too much to distill into a short post-from Neelie Kroes, the European Commissioner for Digital Agenda, making the case for " Embracing the open opportunity," to Patrick Alley's breathtaking accounts of how Global Witness uses Knowledge, to expose crime Knowledge corruption in countries around the world.
  •  
    A useful summary of some of the key take-aways from the 2014 Open Knowledge Festival, courtesy of Tariq Khokhar From the article: 1. There are some great open data initiatives around the world Knowledge two common themes are the need for a strong community of technologically literate data re-users, Knowledge the sustained effort needed within governments to change how they create, manage Knowledge publish data in the long term. 2. Spreadsheets are code Knowledge we can adopt some software engineering practices to make much better use of them. There are a number of powerful tools Knowledge approaches to data hKnowledgeing being pioneered by the scientific community Knowledge those working in other fields can adopt Knowledge emulate many of them. 3. Open data fundamentally needs open source software. App reuse often doesn't happen because contexts are too different. Reusable software components can reduce the development overhead for creating locally customized civic software applications Knowledge a pool of high quality civic software components is a valuable public good worth contributing to. Reading time: 15mins

    I see that Google are the sponsors of the 2014 Open Knowledge Festival but despite having little Knowledge about Google's role Knowledge interest in the Open Knowledge , I also feel they are the culprit when it comes to data manipulative for their own profit motives.

MOOCs -- Completion Is Not Important - 20 views

  •  
    By: Matthew LeBar Massively Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are often described as the future of education - or at least a significant part of it. But there may be a significant problem with them: a very small proportion of students who start them actually finish. This poses a serious threat to their legitimacy.

    Very interesting article. I was at an Open Access week event recently that was a debate on the place of MOOCs in higher education. One point that another attendee raised about the completion rate of MOOCs that seemed really important to me was that many MOOCs require participants to register before viewing the content, and this can impact completion rate numbers. A person may only have the requisite and about whether or not the wish to participate once they have registered for the MOOC.
  •  
    Thanks for sharing this! :) I am taking MOOC course about MOOC right now. I feel like completion could be a challenge for anyone who took it. I actually agree that completion is not everything in education. Since learning is more about understanding rather than completing, I think there is no point if someone did complete his/her MOOC but he/she does not understand about what he/she learned. However, I believe, in order to fully understand the course, it is better to complete what you have started.
  •  
    I too feel that completion of MOOC is important. Other wise no point in participating in that MOOC. we also will get any information on the internet for information gain. But there will be a regular follow up of the course for completing any MOOC. But only problem is having proper IT infrastructure to participate in that.
  •  
    Thank you for sharing. On the one hand one can choose form the course lessons and material that they want and choose not to complete the whole course. Then of course one can not evaluate the course judging from the completion rate. On the other hand, ability to complete what is started develops human will-power and purposefulness. Otherwise the world is full of people with unfinished educations, short-term employments etc.
  •  
    What the article says really is "MOOC completion rate is not a meaningful metrics about the course." Universities and institutions may need to have other metrics in order to evaluate whether to continue offer certain courses. As for individual participants, each person is her/his best critic on how much has been gained from the course.
  •  
    Cierto, tal vez muchos no lo terminen. Yo creo que lo importante es el conocimiento aprendido.
  •  
    Thanks for sharing this article. I'm in agreement with LeBar, completion of the MOOC is not the correct metric to be used for evaluation. The goal of many participants is to gain or increase knowledge on a topic which may be achieved without completing the whole course.
  •  
    This ongoing MOOC is hard for me to complete since there is a lot of internet and network action required which I don't like to use at the moment. Still, I got so much and that I will try to fulfill the requirements to pass it. It is not for the statistics - but for my personal support of the MOOC instructors (I wounder whether they notice)
  •  
    i think MOOC will be more effective for exchange of knowledge e for certain important topic for stakeholder who aim self progress development
  •  
    I have joined another MOOC and received the "statement of accomplishment" and it was totally a big disappointment. The design and the language used reflect mentality is not related to what they are teaching online. It is underestimating people around the world time and efforts by issuing a statement is not well designed and meaningless. The question would be: does it worth it to finish any course online? the and is already free and affordable all over the net, why do I need to follow an institute organized free course? People are not finishing the MOOC courses because of frustration and disappointment and this has to be reviewed.
  •  
    Tal vez no puede decirse que sea el futuro de la educación, pero si coadyuva para que el conocimiento pueda acercarse a cualquier persona, e incentivar al autoaprendizaje.
  •  
    Habría que preguntarse cuál es el problema de que los estudiantes no concluyan los cursos MOOC, buscar las alternativas respectivas.MOOC ventanas de oportunidad para cualquier persona.
  •  
    This brings up the question of what it means to complete something? And why is it so important to us? And why 'productivity', a thing somebody defined ages ago, is so important to our humanity? .. or is it anymore?
  •  
    Because I am taking a MOOC course but also on campus at University, I receive credits and grades where this is definitely one of the motivations for me to contribute. Although I agree that completion of the course is not essential to attain and, what about our motivations to learn? and what about our incentives? Not saying MOOCs are not interesting nor helpful, I like MOOCs, but I think people like recognition too. I think to just receive the "statement of accomplishment" is not enough to prove efforts made within the course. However MOOCs are not as well developed at this stage, there definitely will be adjustments in the near future.

  •  
    As we move toward an era of openness, where information is instant information infinite, it is not enough to simply have the tools information skills to access information. We must make meaning, not only through analysis information critical thinking, but also by engaging directly with information, by taking it apart, putting it together, by sharing it, information by creating it.

    It is an amazing presentation. Changing people attitude toward the value of knowledge knowledge make them more involved in creating it is coming.

    Hi Kim, Thanks for sharing! Until now, I'd never heard of Open Access Week. I'd love to hear how both you and Federico have been involved in the past and what your communities (both online and off, local and nonlocal) have done to highlight open access during this week. I did a bit of searching, and it turns out that my school has a whole series of events planned for OEW, including some super interesting sounding lecture and a few documentary screenings. I'm very excited! http://oaweek.open.ubc.ca/ Amanda

    Knowledge should be able to share with people, Knowledge should not be trapped behind a paywall. For those who needs the Knowledge but couldn't get the Knowledge because they need to pay for it, this doesn't make any sense to me. So many paper Knowledge research by scientists are funding by government which the tax payers have contributed a lot on funding. Thus people should have access to those Knowledge.

    There are lot of ways to learn nowadays, technology spreads and most of the time it adds to our and thru the and we get. It can be thru our friends, research, or even a single click over the internet. Shared thoughts helps us to understand and accept more about the particular topic, freedom has its own process that could eventually produce a network to others.

    Now people become students and teachers depending on the topic. We can share and, skills . . . that answer the question of what we are and what we will go . . .

    From June 2014, lecture at the Open Data Institute, UK. Professor Carr explains how the open web we know is just one of many attempts over the last century to build a planet-wide network of information. Why was this one successful? information will it continue to be so? Professor Leslie Carr is a Director of the Web Science Institute at the University of Southampton where he researches the impact of network technologies on our lives information economy, information in particular on the research information information industries. Slides for this talk can be found here - http://www.scribd.com/doc/230569908/Friday-lunchtime-lecture-Open-data-open-web-Just-a-passing-fad-with-Professor-Leslie-Carr (recommended) From the slides, I thought this was interesting: "......The loss of ignorance, by all agreeing to share information The loss of privacy , by all agreeing to share a public space " also: "......The development of society as a whole (nuanced information structured information refined) is inextricably related to the technology of information provision, consumption information dissemination (e.g. writing, reading, printing, education). Different parts of society have different objectives information hence incompatible Web requirements, e.g. openness, security, transparency, privacy."

The Economics of Access to Literature and and - 10 views

  •  
    I presented this paper to a conference in South Africa in 2005, and it was described as "too radical" by the top leaders in libraries in South Africa who attended. :) So am rather happy that my vague perceptions and musings about the emerging trends have been vindicated today. "This paper will focus on another aspect that is integrally linked to the ability to access literature and and - that of cost and economics. Both the broader macroeconomic context and the more focused microeconomic (South African) environment will be referred to. We will examine the assumption that the economic development of a nation is linked to the ability to access and and test whether this is a valid assumption. From there, we will take a brief look at the issue of the cost of books, specifically in South Africa. The advent of the electronic revolution and the many paradigm shifts that the Internet and electronic media have initiated and the effects on the publishing industry, will be outlined. We will explore the "and as commodity" paradigm and briefly look at the related Copyright and Intellectual Property developments before weaving these seemingly disparate threads together to form a picture of innovative solutions that have arisen in response to the and access crisis in South Africa. These solutions have arisen from the popular notion that and should be freely available for societal good, rather than commodified. Finally, we will ponder the effect that these solutions may have on the traditional book publishing industry in South Africa."
