“But society as a whole will benefit enormously. The store of human capital will  be more broadly and accurately represented by credentials that are useful in a  mobile, interconnected world. Separating the credentialing and teaching  functions of higher education allows organizations to specialize in one or the  other.”

Juliana Elisa Raffaghelli's insight:

tools to promote open learning as personalized learning paths, badges have a great potential. however, we should carefully think about their contextualization.

Privacy, Anonymity, and Big Data in the Social Sciences - ACM Queue | An open world (?) | Scoop.it
Quality social science research and the privacy of human subjects requires trust.
Juliana Elisa Raffaghelli's insight:

In educational research (as branch of social sciences) the debate on open datasets raise the (rather BIG) problem of dealing with personal information. This article raises very well the issue taking into consideration the edX MOOCs first year of activity (analysis performed on 16 MOOCs).

Some insights: I guess this debate can be placed within the wider scope of educational data mining (datasets are the final presentation of mined data). So an interdisciplinary approach to study the problem should take into consideration both the research problems of open datasets and the research problems of educational data mining/learning analytics. I'll keep on digging on the issue.

Are you a "double gamer" (Cristina Costa, 2014), playing your role in the traditional academia as well as on the social web? Are you still affraid to cross the line? This will be helpful to start thinking not only to innovate in scientific communication and networking, but also to adapt researchers' career development to new (and more participatory) forms of doing science.

Un interessante report su uno studio condotto tra il 2007-2010, sull'approccio degli accademici all'uso di informazione e strumenti digitali. Mi pare molto interessante la diversificazione tra discipline e la non (grande) differenza tra giovani e anziani, due presupposti di grande importanza per orientare la ricerca sulla tematica, secondo me, ancorata alla descrizione generica dei profili e ad una visione piuttosto romantica del potere delle tecnologie per la società partecipativa, contro il potere delle culture accademiche.

Webinar March 5: Badges for Learning - A review of the formative role of badges in two open online courses

Webinar March 5: Badges for Learning - A review of the formative role of badges in two open online courses | An open world (?) | Scoop.it

Simon Cross, Open University, UK

The emergence of open online learning courses brings in to sharp relief the viability of existing forms of teacher provided formative and summative assessment. For such courses that carry no charge for participation alternative structures for engaging, motivating and sustaining study need to be sought. Badges or similar such visual public symbols that communicate to others a particular quality, achievement or affiliation possessed by the owner may have a role to play. This session will cover some potential social and psychological roles for badges and then report on the reception and use of badges in two 'massive' open online courses delivered in 2013. This will highlight the varied functions badges performed with particular attention to how they may support and guide learning in a 'formative' capacity during a course and the need for effective pedagogic design and alignment of the course badging strategy. This discussion will draw upon data from end of courses surveys that specifically asked about badges, pre-course surveys, and user comments made during the course such as on Twitter.

The start time will be 07:00 UST/GMT (duration 1 hour approx). See your equivalent local time. http://timeanddate.com/s/2hw9

Assumptions and challenges of open scholarship
Juliana Elisa Raffaghelli's insight:

A comprehensive narrative review worth to consult by Veletsianos&Kimmons on the well known open journal | "The International Review of Research in Open and Distributed Learning". Yes, the potential of new media and the movement of Open Access is to be realized in order to achieve open scholarship. But we also need "a more critical examination of open scholarly practices, because the dominant educational technology narratives embraced in the field present an overwhelmingly positive picture of technology use in education that we believe is detrimental to our future". 

So, lets search for a good balance!

Invasion of the MOOCs: The Promises and Perils of Massive Open Online Courses | Parlor Press

Invasion of the MOOCs: The Promises and Perils of Massive Open Online Courses | Parlor Press | An open world (?) | Scoop.it

Invasion of the MOOCs: The Promise and Perils of Massive Open Online Courses is one of the first collections of essays about the phenomenon of “Massive Online Open Courses.” Unlike accounts in the mainstream media and educational press, Invasion of the MOOCs is not written from the perspective of removed administrators, would-be education entrepreneurs/venture capitalists, or political pundits. Rather, this collection of essays comes from faculty who developed and taught MOOCs in 2012 and 2013, students who participated in those MOOCs, and academics and observers who have first hand experience with MOOCs and higher education. These twenty-one essays reflect the complexity of the very definition of what is (and what might in the near future be) a “MOOC,” along with perspectives and opinions that move far beyond the polarizing debate about MOOCs that has occupied the media in previous accounts. Toward that end, Invasion of the MOOCs reflects a wide variety of impressions about MOOCs from the most recent past and projects possibilities about MOOCs for the not so distant future.
