Forecast 2020: Web 3.0+ and Collective Intelligence

Forecast 2020: Web 3.0+ and Collective Intelligence | 21st Century Information Fluency | Scoop.it

"Let’s focus on the resulting element — the “collective intelligence”. Think about it as billions of human brains working using future super computers as a platform. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) professor Srini Devadas described “collective intelligence” as consisting of two pillars: cloud computing and crowd computing. Cloud computing is using the Internet as a platform and making access to information available to everyone. Crowd computing, according to him, involves the analysis of information into “collective intelligence” far beyond what we have today."

Knowledge Management: Knoco stories: Questioning the question

Knowledge Management: Knoco stories: Questioning the question | 21st Century Information Fluency | Scoop.it
Knowledge Management ideas and models from Nick Milton of Knoco - sometimes provocative, but always grounded in experience.

 

We were talking about knowledge transfer between two people, and the power of questions in eliciting knowledge. And she said "as a librarian, I have been taught, and made it a habit over many years, never to accept the first question".

The Critical Pastafarian: Evaluation by Authority in a Web 2.0 World

The Critical Pastafarian:  Evaluation by Authority in a Web 2.0 World | 21st Century Information Fluency | Scoop.it

Authority for local history searches is a challenge for the public librarian. Which resource is more authoritative: the scholarly document citing a litany of government and academic resources, or the sincere first-person account? Does it matter if a community trusts the views and opinions of the latter more than the former?


If it does matter, how does that situation differ from a seasoned historian preferring the former? And what is my role as a librarian in understanding authority in this realm?

Don’t Shush Me! In Some Libraries, It’s OK to be Loud | MindShift

Don’t Shush Me! In Some Libraries, It’s OK to be Loud | MindShift | 21st Century Information Fluency | Scoop.it

The shift to a noisier and more interactive library model is relatively new in U.S. public school systems.

 

Buffy Hamilton seems to be redefining what it means to be a librarian. She’s active on Twitter, maintains a blog about being a “modern school librarian” and frequently travels around the country and world to speak about her model. Creekview’s was the only school-based library that won a 2011 American Library Association award for having a cutting-edge technology service, Media 21, that could be replicated by other school libraries around the country.

'Embedded Librarian' on Twitter Served as Information Concierge for Class - Wired Campus - The Chronicle of Higher Education

'Embedded Librarian' on Twitter Served as Information Concierge for Class - Wired Campus - The Chronicle of Higher Education | 21st Century Information Fluency | Scoop.it

What if a reference librarian was assigned to a college course, to be on hand to suggest books, online links, or other resources based on class discussion? A media-studies course at Baylor University tried the idea last semester, with an “embedded librarian” following the class discussion via Twitter.
