11 University and Library Groups Release Net-Neutrality Principles – Wired Campus - Blogs - The Chronicle of Higher Education

11 University and Library Groups Release Net-Neutrality Principles – Wired Campus - Blogs - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

The nation’s colleges and libraries have a message for the Federal Communications Commission: Don’t mess with net neutrality.


Echoing almost a decade of pro-neutrality sentiment in academe, 11 higher-education and library groups released a set of 11 principles on Thursday that promote the notion that all Internet content, regardless of origin, should be treated equally.


The 11 principles—meant to guide the FCC as it considers new open-Internet rules—include recommendations to prohibit the blocking of legal websites, ensure neutrality on public networks, forbid paid prioritization in the transmission of some content over others, and adopt enforceable policies.


Before adopting enforceable policies, though, the FCC will have to find some that stand up in court. In January the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit vacated the commission’s existing net-neutrality rules. The FCC responded in May by saying it would propose new rules that could permit telecommunications companies to charge extra for high-speed delivery of content. Net-neutrality advocates worried then that the new rules, if unchanged, could prove detrimental to cybereducation and research collaboration, among other uses of the Internet.

Three Active Learning Strategies That Push Students Beyond Memorization

Three Active Learning Strategies That Push Students Beyond Memorization | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
Those who teach in the health disciplines expect their students to retain and apply every iota of learned material. However, many students come to us having achieved academic success by memorizing the content, regurgitating that information onto an exam, and promptly forgetting a good portion of it. In health, as well as other disciplines where new material builds upon the material from the previous semesters, it is critical for students to retain what they learn throughout their coursework and as they begin their careers as a nurse, engineer, elementary teacher, etc.

5 reflexiones sobre el desarrollo de cursos eLearning

5 reflexiones sobre el desarrollo de cursos eLearning | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Las viñetas y otras pantallas basadas en texto no solo son aburridas y muestran una falta de creatividad, también toman tiempo para ser leídas por el alumno; tiempo durante el cual el alumno se distrae de lo que escucha. El resultado: la audiencia no es capaz de concentrarse plenamente, ya sea en el contenido verbal o escrito, y no logra absorber la mayoría de la información.


El contenido visual, por otro lado, complementa la información auditiva. De hecho, la combinación correcta de los elementos visuales y los estímulos verbales puede hacer que el contenido sea inolvidable. Entonces, en vez de crear pantallas llenas de contenido, muestre a los estudiantes cómo se ve este contenido y cuente la  historia detrás de la información. Utilice herramientas de pensamiento visual como metáforas para mejorar el mensaje gráfico.


Las imágenes, diagramas y escenarios también le ayudarán a lograrlo. Los diseñadores pueden, incluso, animar imágenes a medida que la historia se desarrolla, para asegurarse que los alumnos se mantengan concentrados en la narración con el fin de comprender el mensaje completo.


Ser capaz de pensar en imágenes ayuda a llevar los cursos al siguiente nivel. Comience con un ejercicio simple: ¿Cómo puedo utilizar elementos visuales para explicar el contenido que normalmente escribiría como una diapositiva llena de viñetas?

¿Vale menos la educación si es online? | Proexpansion Perú | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
La recientemente promulgada ley universitaria reconoce la existencia de la educación a distancia, sin embargo, le otorga un trato inexplicablemente discriminatorio.
Alfredo Calderon's insight:

Me parece que los argumentos se deben analaizar con detenimiento. Sospecho que una causa de este alegato es la falta de estructura e investigación científica en el diseño e implementación de cursos o programas en línea.

Faculty use Internet-based technologies to create global learning opportunities @insidehighered | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

For his world regional geography class at Allegheny College last fall, Eric Pallant arranged for his students to videoconference with a class at Forman Christian College, an English-medium institution in Pakistan. It was Pallant's second such experience teaching a “globally connected” course: the spring before he had taught a class on food and agriculture in collaboration with a professor at Morocco’s Al Akhawayn University.


Among the assignments Pallant had planned for the geography class, the Allegheny students were to prepare detailed reports on the physical and human geography of their town, Meadville, Penn., while the Pakistani students would do the same for their country. The two classes would exchange and present on their respective findings.

Planetary Nervous System, Global Participatory Platform, Social Information Technologies: How to Create a Better World

It probably started with Linux, then came Wikipedia and Open Street Map. Crowd-sourced information systems are central for the Digital Society to thrive. So, what's next? In this video, Dirk Helbing introduces a number of concepts such as the Planetary Nervous System, Global Participatory Platform, Interactive Virtual Worlds, User-Controlled Information Filters and Reputation Systems, and the Digital Data Purse. He also discusses ideas such as the Social Mirror, Intercultural Adapter, the Social Protector and Social Money as tools to create a better world. These can help us to avoid systemic instabilities, market failures, tragedies of the commons, and exploitation, and to create the framework for a Participatory Market Society, where everyone can be better off.
