9 free videos on copyright, ethical use of information; creation, remixing, mashing up and reuse of information

Mayra.Loves.Books's curator insight, November 9, 2013 10:18 PM

This animated presentation is very good, albeit fast. I wonder if there is a similar one for school students. The younger we get kiddos to understand the purpose or the idea behind copyright, the easier to explain all the ramifications later when the students are older.

Academic citation practices need to be modernized so that all references are digital and lead to full texts. | 21st Century Information Fluency | Scoop.it
Finally, let me plead directly with any readers who exercise power in the scholarly publication process — because you edit a journal or a book series, you work for a publisher or undertake editing for authors, or you are a powerful person in your professional academic association. Look hard at the rules, conventions and styles that you are currently applying. Can you honestly say that your legacy requirements meet contemporary needs and have adapted to the digital dissemination of scholarship? Are your citation rules designed in a ‘born digital’ way? Do they foster open access and the replicability of research by getting the full texts of source materials in front of readers in the most direct and simple way possible? If not, why not think about changing?

15 Lesson Plans For Making Students Better Online Researchers ~ Global Digital Citizen Foundation

15 Lesson Plans For Making Students Better Online Researchers ~ Global Digital Citizen Foundation | 21st Century Information Fluency | Scoop.it

"Google is usually one of the first places students turn to when tasked with an assignment. Whether it’s for research, real-time results, or just a little digital exploration … it’s important they know how to properly Google. Lucky for teachers (and students, of course), Google has a handy set of lesson plans that are just waiting to be unleashed upon the leaders of tomorrow.

 

"While I understand there’s a LOT more to research than just Googling, it’s important to note that this is where nearly all students start their research. Therefore, it’s a critical skill if they’re going to start down the right paths.

 

"Below are 15 lesson plans courtesy of Google designed to make students better online researchers. They’re organized by difficulty and meant to help students (and everyone) become better online searchers."

Issues in Open Access to Research (EDUCAUSE Review) | EDUCAUSE.edu | 21st Century Information Fluency | Scoop.it

The success of open government data is indisputable. By empowering data scientists as well as the general public to interrogate publicly shared government data sets, we have been able to discover new trends and correlations as well as spot malfeasance. Open data affects publicly funded academic research at a governmental and funder level as well, including the types of research supported and what happens with the data collected. Nonetheless, it took a recent statement from the Public Library of Science (PLOS) to ignite the conversation about open data between individual academic researchers.

Most of us turn to the internet when we are looking for resources to use for a presentation, report or article. The internet holds the key to so many robust resources.

Yet how many of these resources can you legally use for free? How many of them can you adapt?

That’s where Open Educational Resources (OER) can help. Here’s an infographic from the Center for Open Educational Resources and Language Learning (at the University of Texas at Austin) that can help.

Study of massive preprint archive hints at the geography of plagiarism

Study of massive preprint archive hints at the geography of plagiarism | 21st Century Information Fluency | Scoop.it

"New analyses of the hundreds of thousands of technical manuscripts submitted to arXiv, the repository of digital preprint articles, are offering some intriguing insights into the consequences—and geography—of scientific plagiarism. It appears that copying text from other papers is more common in some nations than others, but the outcome is generally the same for authors who copy extensively: Their papers don’t get cited much. 


The map above, prepared by ScienceInsider, takes a conservative approach. It shows only the incidence of flagged authors for the 57 nations with at least 100 submitted papers, to minimize distortion from small sample sizes. (In Ethiopia, for example, there are only three submitting authors and two of them have been flagged.)"

Job #JPF00635 
LIB UC Library - LIBRARY 
Recruitment Period

Open Jan 8, 2015 through Dec 31, 2015

Description
Hiring range: Associate Librarian - Librarian, $60,684-

$83,674 per annum, based upon qualifications.

This is a full time appointment. The expected start date is June 1, 2015.

The University of California, Berkeley seeks a collaborative and service-oriented librarian to provide research, teaching and learning support to the UC Berkeley community in optometry, ophthalmology, vision science, nutrition, health sciences, and medical sciences and to develop, promote, and enhance access to library collections.

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

I worked my way through school working in the UC Berkeley Library system. It gave me a life long affinity for Libraries, information science, and the beauty of the stacks.  The great privilege of (other than the chance to do my homework after I'd shelved all the returns) was a 'stack pass' that let me roam through spaces denied to most students. Those manuscript rooms were amazing. The hidden places remains a fine memory today.  


Perhaps one of the readers of this Scoop.it will find their way into those same places?

EasyBib Compares Two Years of Information Literacy Data

EasyBib Compares Two Years of Information Literacy Data | 21st Century Information Fluency | Scoop.it
Students’ confidence radically mismatches librarians’ assessment of their skills, two reports from EasyBib conclude, particularly in website evaluation, paraphrasing, and direct quotation. Also, students are using the open web less often they were two years ago, and dramatically more librarians are stressing the role of faculty in promoting information literacy. The first report, Trends in Information Literacy: A Comparative View, was published in May 2014; the second, Perspectives on Student Research Skills in K-12 and Academic Communities, came out the following October; taken together, the two reveal some thought-provoking data on information literacy across the country.
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

As a classroom teacher I found teaching students how to paraphrase to be a very steep hill to climb.  Many never budged from the first steps on the learning curve. This graph helps us visualize the mis-match between student self assessment and the assessment of experts.  


To speak to this issue Dr. Carl Heine developed a challenging and highly effective online game that challenges misconceptions about paraphrase and plagiarism. To sample this no so simple tool The the Plagiarism Dropbox from 21CIF.com.
