The 7 Powerful Idea Shifts In Learning Today by Terry Heick, TeachThought.com : Shift_Learning: The 7 Most Powerful Idea Shifts In Learning Today So we’re taking a stand here. This is all incredibly subjective, but so are the VH1 Top 100 Hair Bands Videos and those are fun, am I right? So subjective it is. Michael Gove: A Marxist Teacher Responds In the past few weeks I have tried something quite difficult. I have refrained from joining in any Gove-bashing, in order to see just how deep hatred of Michael Gove goes in the teaching profession. Anytime someone raised the subject I would casually say “I suppose any Minister for Education is controvers-” but, before I could finish my sentence, colleagues, lecturers in education, tutors, teaching assistants and even some students would interrupt. “No”, they would make it clear, “Michael Gove is different”.
Use Personal Marketing to Set Yourself Apart There are many singers, but only one Elvis Presley. There are many dancers, but only one Fred Astaire. There are many talk show hosts, but people still talk about Johnny Carson. WELCOME TO MY WEBPAGE Mozhgan Tavakoli Computer Information Systems courses including: Computer Science Information Technology 101 Introduction to Information Systems for MIS 103 M.A. Thesis Visual tools for the socio–semantic web This thesis contributes to a new discipline of science: web science, as introduced by Tim Berners-Lee and others in 2006. Designers, computer scientists, sociologists, cognitive scientists, psychologists etc. have individual perspectives on the complex and rapidly evolving interplay of technological and social infrastructure and human society. However, a well-defined discipline — unifying the scientific analysis of social and human factors to understand, but also to shape and steer web developments by informed design and engineering —is not established yet. I hope to contribute to an interdisciplinary dialogue between science, engineering and design with this thesis.
Who Owns the Future? by Jaron Lanier – review Jaron Lanier, groundbreaking computer scientist and infectious optimist, is concerned that we are not making the most of ourselves. In Who Owns the Future? he tellingly questions the trajectory of economic value in the information age, and argues that there has been a fundamental misstep in how capitalism has gone digital. For Lanier, late capitalism is not so much exhausted as humiliating: in an automated world, information is more important to the economy than manual labour, and yet we are expected to surrender information generated by or about ourselves – a valuable resource – for free. Information here is a broad term for any conscious intellectual, artistic, or pragmatic contribution to the production of goods, services and cultural output, but it also includes the data that we unconsciously radiate simply by exhibiting certain behavioural and consumer traits.
How Economic Inequality Is (Literally) Making Us Sick Imagine there was one changeable factor that affected virtually every measure of a country’s health— including life expectancy, crime rates, addiction, obesity, infant mortality, stroke, academic achievement, happiness and even overall prosperity. Indeed, this factor actually exists. It’s called economic inequality. A growing body of research suggests that such inequality — more so than income or absolute wealth alone — has a profound influence on a population’s health, in every socioeconomic group from rich to middle class to poor. My Best Presentation Tricks - Stepcase Lifehack Giving presentations can be a complete and utter thrill. Too bad attending them can be a complete and utter bore. If you are on the giving side, I want to offer you up a collection of my best presentation tricks to date.
Welcome to the ePortfolio Program! All undergraduates at Clemson University are expected to create and submit a digital portfolio as evidence of academic and experiential mastery of Clemson's core competencies. Students collect work from their classes and elsewhere, connecting (tagging) it to the competencies (Mathematical Literacy; Natural Science; Science and Technology in Society; Social Sciences; Cross-Cultural Awareness; Arts and Humanities; and the distributed competencies Ethical Judgment and Critical Thinking) throughout their undergraduate experience. B.Sc. Thesis Projection Techniques for Document Maps This thesis compares different vector space projection techniques for creating two–dimensional maps out of text document collections. I describe the process from raw text information to similarity maps and implemented a working prototype.
The c MOOC as knowledge ecologies Thanks to Stephen Downes for the reference to Dr. Mohamed Amine Chatti’s Knowledge Management: A Personal Knowledge Network Perspective. Here are some abstracts that I would like to quote: Knowledge ecologies are thus self-controlled and self-contained entities. Knowledge ecologies lacked a shared repertoire and are thus open and distributed knowledge domains.The result of participation in a knowledge ecology is a restructuring of one’s PKN, a reframing of one’s theories-in-use and an extension of one’s external network with new tacit and explicit knowledge nodes; i.e. people and information (external level)Knowledge ecology is a more general concept than intensional networks.In essence, a knowledge ecology is a complex adaptive system that emerges from the bottom-up connection of PKNs.
Income inequality is not the cause of this nation’s social problems Myth: Income inequality is not the cause of this nation's social problems. Fact: Studies by Harvard and Berkeley prove the correlation, and strongly suggest causation. Summary Considering Presentations - Stepcase Lifehack Tomorrow, I will stand in a room of people at Bar Camp Boston and talk about content networks. The audience will be primarily really technical people, who know more about networking, hacking, developing, engineering, and everything than me. They will be looking at me with eyes that all engineering crowds give me at presentations: “Who are you? What do you know? How can this be useful to me?”
