Rexplore | Exploring Research Data | Knowledge Media Institute | The Open University Rexplore leverages novel solutions in large-scale data mining, semantic technologies and visual analytics, to provide an innovative environment for exploring and making sense of scholarly data. In particular, Rexplore allows users: To detect and make sense of important trends in research, such as, significant migrations of researchers from one area to another, the emergence of new topics, the evolution of communities within a particular area, and several others. An important aspect of Rexplore is that it does not rely on manually-generated taxonomies of research areas, which tend to be shallow and date very rapidly, but uses instead an innovative ontology population algorithm, Klink, which automatically constructs a semantic network of fine-grained research areas, linked by semantic relations, such as sameAs and subAreaOf.

AR360 | Log In DADI : bases de données gratuites Près de 20 ans après sa création, le répertoire de bases de Données grAtuites Disponibles sur Internet ferme ses portes. Crée en 1996 Dadi, produit pionnier et phare de l’URFIST de Lyon, a eu pour objectif de recenser les ressources libres disponibles sur le Web à une époque où ce dernier faisait ses premiers pas, sans moteurs de recherches. Jean Pierre Lardy, alors co-responsable de l’Urfist de Lyon et enseignant chercheur en physique, a imaginé puis animé Dadi pendant une quinzaine d’années, dans le but de donner à voir les ressources du web invisible en libre accès utiles au monde académique. Véritable aide à la recherche dans un univers en pleine mutation, DADI connaîtra un usage important et comptera parmi les ressources incontournables en France pour la recherche d’information. Son impact rayonnera dans les pays francophones comme la Belgique et le Canada. La Bibliothèque Nationale de France a réalisé un archivage régulier de Dadi.

Reference, Facts, News - Free and Family-friendly Resources - Refdesk Curriculet Changing the way kids read — and how teachers create, share and teach. INTERVIEW | by Victor Rivero After spending the decade before founding Curriculet as the founder and principal of two KIPP schools, there were two major problems Jason Singer wanted to solve. “First and foremost, I want students to spend their school-age years falling in love with reading and making it a lifelong passion,” says Jason, but “In fact the opposite is true. providing this richer more engaging experience will fundamentally revolutionize the reading lives of kids,” says Jason. Victor: What else can you tell me about its development history? Jason: We began working on the vision and design of Curriculet while I was still a sitting principal. Victor: Anything else our readers would find interesting about your own background that informed your current approach? Jason: Everything really. Victor: What’s your 60 second pitch to someone on what exactly it is, benefits? Victor: Anything else in the works? Like this:

Teach Kids To Be Their Own Internet Filters ” credit=”flickingerbrad/Flickr It’s becoming less and less effective to block students from websites. When Los Angeles Unified rolled out its one-to-one iPad program, administrators expected to be able to control how students used them both in school and at home. But, not surprisingly, kids are resourceful and students quickly found ways around the security, prompting the district to require students to turn over the devices. Students live in an information-saturated world. “If we are not teaching the kids to use the web as a vehicle for enhancing learning and teaching them to be the filter, that’s a dereliction of duty.” A key to making sure good practices stick is to teach research skills when kids need them.

Books in the home as important as parents education level: University of Nevada, Reno Whether rich or poor, residents of the United States or China, illiterate or college graduates, parents who have books in the home increase the level of education their children will attain, according to a 20-year study led by Mariah Evans, University of Nevada, Reno associate professor of sociology and resource economics. For years, educators have thought the strongest predictor of attaining high levels of education was having parents who were highly educated. But, strikingly, this massive study showed that the difference between being raised in a bookless home compared to being raised in a home with a 500-book library has as great an effect on the level of education a child will attain as having parents who are barely literate (3 years of education) compared to having parents who have a university education (15 or 16 years of education). Both factors, having a 500-book library or having university-educated parents, propel a child 3.2 years further in education, on average.
