University research: if you believe in openness, stand up for it

University research: if you believe in openness, stand up for it | 10 Silly Things Girls Must Not Do | Scoop.it

Publishing openly provides greater exposure, boosts prospects and can lead to more citations, says Erin McKiernan

 

We spend years teaching our children to share. Yet from the moment students enter academia, we discourage it. Lock up your work in prestigious subscription journals; keep your data close to your chest; compete instead of collaborate – these are the messages transmitted by peers and mentors. These are the tenets of our unhealthy academic culture. We need to change our priorities.

Open Education = Open Research?  Research behind the paywall vs research delivered by keyword search on Google or Bing?

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, August 24, 2014 10:50 PM

Sharing our research is important, but forgoing vigor in publishing could be problematic. For example, what makes an open source published article strong? There is a a need to explore something different that allows publication, openness, and vigor.

Could a later start to the school day be the most useful educational reform of all?

Summer is expiring, the mornings already feel shorter and now, for families across the country, it's that dark time of year when we reacquaint ourselves with our alarm clocks and – whisper it – go back to school (although children in Scotland went back two weeks ago).

Tablets fall out of favour in NSW classrooms | 10 Silly Things Girls Must Not Do | Scoop.it
Once hailed as the poster child of digital interactive learning, tablets are falling increasingly out of favour in NSW schools.

I would really like to see 'how' they used the devices in the classroom. I can see this as another case of blame the technology (device) rather than the learning design for the activities.

 

I would have thought that a device with a range of scientific instruments included in it (gyroscope, accelerometer, two cameras), would be more useful for collecting and reporting on data/events than a keyboard with a screen. Sounds like a typewriter vs an educational swiss army knife to me.

 

Do we want our children to be able to ask the right questions with inquiry based learning or be able to type 40 words a minute?
