The Future of the Internet-And How to Stop It - 0 views

  •  
    The Future of the Internet explains the engine that has catapulted the Internet from backwater to ubiquity-and reveals that it is sputtering precisely because of its runaway success. With the unwitting help of its users, the generative Internet is on a path to a lockdown, ending its cycle of innovation-and facilitating unsettling new kinds of control. As tethered appliances and applications eclipse the PC, the very nature of the Internet-its "generativity," or innovative character-is at risk.

The Ultimate Guide To Online Privacy | Edudemic - 0 views

  • What’s the harm in essentially ignoring that privacy policy? While the majority of the time it’s harmless, there are some ne’er-do-wells that may gather your personal information and sell it to marketers, advertisers, or spammers. While terrible, it’s not unheard of.
  • According to a recent report, there’s a big reason users don’t read privacy policies: they’re too damn long. Of the top 1,000 websites, the longest privacy policy takes about 45 minutes to read…the average takes 10 minutes. About 72% of these websites allow users to opt out of being tracked. However, about 40% make you make navigate to a different (sometimes hard-to-find) section of the website to opt out.
  • Google has tools like the Google Dashboard, the Ads Preferences Manager and encrypted search if you’re looking for some of the more popular ways to manage your Google interactions. Most recently, Google launched an extension for Chrome called Keep My Opt-Outs, which allows you to opt out permanently from ad tracking cookies. And pretty soon Chrome will be extending the availability of 2-step verification, an advanced account security solution that is now helping protect more than 1,000 new accounts a day from common problems like phishing and password compromise. Right now it’s available to Google Apps Accounts and should available to the general public in a few weeks.

  • Privacy Rights Clearinghouse is a great place to get easy-to-digest literature about what rights you actually have online and more.
  • CyberAngels (www.cyberangels.org) describes itself as “your cyber neighborhood watch.” The organization finds and reports illegal material online, educates families about online safety, works with schools and libraries, and shares basic Internet tips and help resources.

  • Pidder is a German startup and, more importantly, the first social network based on privacy by design. Pia Pauls, a co-founder of the site, reached out to Edudemic to make everyone aware of Pidder and it’s definitely worth checking out. Here’s a synopsis directly from Pia: In addition to social networking where you stay in control of your own data and only share it with those you deliberately choose, pidder is a place to easily and securely manage passwords and logins. Pidder even provides an identity management service allowing the use of pseudonyms.

The Attention Economy: An Overview - 0 views

  • Because of this information explosion, we no longer read - we skim. The news that used to last a day now lasts just a few hours, simply because we need to pay attention to the new news. So it is becoming increasingly difficult to juggle all the news sources and keep on top of things. Which brings us to the law of information, stated first by Herbert Simon: the rapid growth of information
  • causes scarcity of attention.
  • It is also a big problem for news sites, blogs, search engines and online retailers. Our scarcity of attention hurts their economics.
  • ...12 more annotations...
  • What is the likelihood that you leave if you see an irrelevant headline? High.
  • The idea behind the Attention Economy is to create a marketplace where consumers are happy, because if they are shown relevant information
  • For example news feeds illustrate the point well, since they ask for consumers attention in exchange for the opportunity to show him/her advertising. The Search engines are similar in that respect, because they show ads in exchange for helping users find answers online.
  • It is important to realize that the key ingredient in the attention game is relevancy.
  • So the question is: how do you show the user relevant content? This is a complex problem that can be partially addressed by recommendation engines.
  • Another key ingredient of the Attention Economy is privacy.
  • The challenge is not just to protect consumers information, the challenge is to put the user in control of her information.
  • AttentionTrust succeeded in defining a simple, elegant, yet encompassing set of principles that define the rules of the game, by outlining the basic consumer rights in the AttentionEconomy: Property: You own your attention and can store it wherever you wish. You have CONTROL. Mobility: You can securely move your attention wherever you want, whenever you want to. You have the ability to TRANSFER your attention. Economy: You can pay attention to whomever you wish and receive value in return. Your attention has WORTH. Transparency: You can see exactly how your attention is being used.
  • So these seemingly simple rules ensure that participants transact fairly and that businesses do not monopolize users information
  • Ideally, a body of standards and protocols should be the technological foundation of the Attention Economy. Since these are early days of the conversation about attention, such standards do not yet exist. Here is an outline of what the Attention Architecture will look like (there is a detailed post on the topic from last year on my personal blog):
  • So from a technical point of view, the key to facilitating the attention marketplace is in decoupling of attention capturing, attention storage and attention recording services.
  • Silos: User information needs to be freed from proprietary silos Round Table: The industry needs to create a round table, to enable organizations to govern both the business and technical aspects of the attention economy (think Java Community Process). Education: People need to be educated about the value of their attention and the principles of attention economy. Avoiding privacy concerns will not work, instead they need to be tackled head on.

How to buy cheap domain | I Update You - 0 views

  •  
    A domain signifies your identity or address on the internet. A domain is a phrase including several components separated by dot. Each domain name includes a top level domain such as .NET, .COM or .ORG. Domain names ending in .COM were supposed for commercial, for profit organizations while names ending in .NET were for network infrastructure machines and those ending in .ORG were used for various usually non-profit organizations. It is easy to get a cheap domain that is equally reliable. You can choose for the cheapest domain registration if all your preferred names are available.

Tips on Inspiring Student Curiosity - Teaching Now - Education Week Teacher - 0 views

  •  
    "teacher-ready tips for stimulating curiosity in others. First, she suggests starting with the question, rather than the answer-which teachers will recognize as the foundation of inquiry-based or discovery learning (see: math teacher Dan Meyer's take on how to make math "irresistible" to students). She then suggests offering some initial knowledge on the subject. "We're not curious about something we know absolutely nothing about," she writes. Again, teachers may know this as "activating prior knowledge" or "setting the stage" before a lesson. Finally, she says it helps to require communication, or "open an information gap and then require learners to communicate with each other in order to fill it." The think-pair-share technique and vocabulary activities that require students to teach each other their words both exemplify this. What would you add to the list? How does stimulating curiosity gel with other motivation tactics-or should teachers think of curiosity and motivation as one and the same?"

    When adding an API to your web service, you have to choose how to encode the data you send across the line. XML is one common choice for this, but it can grow arcane and cumbersome pretty quickly. Lots of webservice authors want to avoid thinking about XML, and instead choose formats that provide a few simple data types that correspond to common data structures in modern programming languages. In other words, JSON and YAML.

    Thanks to an amazing list of "The Best Web 2.0 Applications for Education-2007" from Larry Ferlazzo's Website, I decided to create my own list of the applications that have been the most useful or promising in the Elementary School scene. Maybe I even make a meme out of it to encourage other elementary school techies to create their own lists and publish them on their blog. The list does not have to be in any particular order.

H.264/MPEG-4 AVC - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - 0 views

  •  
    The intent of the H.264/AVC project was to create a standard capable of providing good video quality at substantially lower bit rates than previous standards (e.g. half or less the bit rate of MPEG-2, H.263, or MPEG-4 Part 2), without increasing the complexity of design so much that it would be impractical or excessively expensive to implement. An additional goal was to provide enough flexibility to allow the standard to be applied to a wide variety of applications on a wide variety of networks and systems, including low and high bit rates, low and high resolution video, broadcast, DVD storage, RTP/IP packet networks, and ITU-T multimedia telephony systems.

Constructivism as a Paradigm for Teaching and Learning - 0 views

    • Choong Charles
       
      Theory/ Principle
  • it usually means encouraging students to use active techniques (experiments, real-world problem solving) to create more knowledge and then to reflect on and talk about what they are doing and how their understanding is changing.
  • Constructivist teachers encourage students to constantly assess how the activity is helping them gain understanding. By questioning themselves and their strategies, students in the constructivist classroom ideally become "expert learners." This gives them ever-broadening tools to keep learning. With a well-planned classroom environment, the students learn HOW TO LEARN.

      Example of how constructivism takes place in classroom
  • One of the teacher's main roles becomes to encourage this learning and reflection process.
    • Choong Charles
       
      Role #1
  • For example: Groups of students in a science class are discussing a problem in physics. Though the teacher knows the "answer" to the problem, she focuses on helping students restate their questions in useful ways. She prompts each student to reflect on and examine his or her current knowledge. When one of the students comes up with the relevant concept, the teacher seizes upon it, and indicates to the group that this might be a fruitful avenue for them to explore. They design and perform relevant experiments. Afterward, the students and teacher talk about what they have learned, and how their observations and experiments helped (or did not help) them to better understand the concept.
    • Choong Charles
       
      Example
  • teachers help students to construct knowledge rather than to reproduce a series of facts.
  • The constructivist teacher provides tools such as problem-solving and inquiry-based learning activities with which students formulate and test their ideas, draw conclusions and inferences, and pool and convey their knowledge in a collaborative learning environment.
