'Geography Education' posts Geo-coded

'Geography Education' posts Geo-coded | What's New on the 31 Topics I Follow? | Scoop.it

I'm pleased to announce that for GIS Day, I created a map that has hyperlinks to regionally specific posts that I put on 'Geography Education.'  This map was created using ArcGIS Online (here's a free tutorial on how to to use ArcGIS Online tailored for K-12 educators).  This is just another way to search for materials on this site.  Feel free to embed this map on your webpage or share the link.  I'll add more tags in the future as well (just click on the icon to get a pop-up, then click on the image to see the posts).  Happy GIS Day!

How cool is this!! This will make it even easier to teach my World Regional and Global Connections courses! Thanks, Seth.
Matt Mallinson's comment, November 19, 2012 8:40 AM
Overall I think this is a good map. There are a few countries that I think could have better abbreviations, North Korea for example is labeled "N" and South Korea is labeled "SK". I went and looked for an "NK" label and there wasn't one. The map is flawed in that way because of the shortage of tools the program gives you to use. The shortage of tools also leads to many places with the same globe image or same lettering as other places. I think you did a good job with what you had available to use.
Charles Matley's comment, November 19, 2012 8:46 AM
This map is great. I The use of the national geographic map makes it more manageable and appealing to the eye. The categorization of posts into geographic locations is very clever. It could potentially be viewed as more "fun" because it is interactive.

Comment sortir du paradigme individualiste en matière de données personnelles ?

Comment sortir du paradigme individualiste en matière de données personnelles ? | What's New on the 31 Topics I Follow? | Scoop.it

Par Pierre Bellanger, fondateur et actuel PDG de la radio Skyrock, à venir présenter son ouvrage "La souveraineté numérique" publié au mois de janvier dernier. Ce fut l’occasion de mieux comprendre les positions de Pierre Bellanger, notamment sur la question du statut des données personnelles.

 

[...]

Pierre Bellanger lui-même a changé d’opinion sur le sujet depuis la parution du livre et qu’il s’éloigne à présent de cette approche "patrimoniale" des données personnelles, qui feront visiblement l’objet d’un nouvel ouvrage à paraître prochainement.

 

[...]

[son opinion le conduisait à] trop ancrer l’appréhension de ces données dans un paradigme individualiste. Or selon lui, il est important aujourd’hui de dépasser ce canevas pour pouvoir appréhender ces données dans leur véritable nature, qui n’engagent pas seulement les individus pris isolement, mais possèdent d’emblée une dimension collective et sociale difficilement saisissable à travers le concept de "données personnelles" issu de la loi Informatique & Libertés de 1978.Son cheminement le conduit à présent à se tourner vers d’autres pistes, à la fois pour penser un statut qui permettrait de "dé-marchandiser" ces données ou de rendre inaliénable certaines formes de droits d’usage, mais aussi pour essayer de penser une gouvernance collective sur ces données.
