MOOCs: Coursera, edX, Futurelearn and Udacity - University profiles | Justin Menard - LISTedTECH | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

With Coursera and edX both announced this week they are doubling the number of universities partners, I decided to update the data. I also added another MOOC: Futurelearn

One more thing that was added to the visualisation is the average University World Ranking by MOOCs.

California Shifts the Ground Under Higher Education - The Conversation - The Chronicle of Higher Education

California Shifts the Ground Under Higher Education - The Conversation - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

California is home to two of the most important things happening in higher education, one good, one bad. The good thing is the rapid advancement of cheap and free online courses offered by companies like Udacity and Coursera. The bad thing is the catastrophic failure of California lawmakers to provide enough money to support basic access to foundational courses at community colleges. Today the state Senate’s president pro tem, Darrell Steinberg, will announce a bill that essentially tries to use the one to fix the other. This groundbreaking initiative has broad implications for the nature, financing, and regulation of higher education

This is very insightful when creating an effective, authentic and reliable curation collection.  It is resources like this one that I feel will benefit others in their teaching and learning journey.

This infographic provides insight into showing how to enhance learning. Critical thinking is an important skill in today's world. Students need encouragement in taking ownership of their own learning. We can find ways to encourage students from this link.

Official Blog: A second spring of cleaning

We’re living in a new kind of computing environment. Everyone has a device, sometimes multiple devices. It’s been a long time since we have had this rate of change—it probably hasn’t happened since the birth of personal computing 40 years ago. To make the most of these opportunities, we need to focus—otherwise we spread ourselves too thin and lack impact. So today we’re announcing some more closures, bringing the total to 70 features or services closed since our spring cleaning began in 2011...

Resumen : Evolución de algunas técnicas clásicas de investigación y su impacto en la comprensión de la nueva sociedad digital en la que vivimos (etnografía)

luiy's curator insight, April 22, 2013 8:38 AM

¿Cómo nos ayuda la etnografía a innovar y a desarrollar un buen servicio?

La gran ventaja que nos proporciona la etnografía es que nos permite explorar de manera directa como interactúan las personas con los objetos. A la hora de realizar una investigación para poder conocer cómo se comportan los usuarios al utilizar un servicio o producto, una sola técnica de investigación no nos permite obtener toda la información que nos interesa, ya que no podemos dejar de tener en cuenta algunos aspectos como:

La comunicación no verbal ya que todos los sonidos, gestos y movimientos corporales complementan el lenguaje verbal.Convencionalismos, ya que no todas las personas expresan de manera correcta lo que quieren transmitir porque pueden estar influenciados por ideas o creencias.El entorno en el que se mueven las personas analizadas.

 

 Lo que la gente dice, lo que la gente hace y lo que la gente dice que hace son cosas completamente diferentes; señala la antropóloga Margaret Mead

Gracias a la etnografía, que aplica técnicas como las entrevistas y la observación podemos conocer de manera completa cuáles son los usos, deseos, frustraciones y opiniones de las personas acerca de un servicio o de un objeto determinado.Con toda la información obtenida durante el proceso de investigación  conoceremos mejor el tipo de personas que van a utilizar nuestro producto y partiendo de esta base podremos desarrollar un buen diseño.

El valor de la ciencia.- | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Estoy convencido de que cuando un científico exami­na problemas no científicos puede ser tan listo o tan tonto como cualquier prójimo, y de que cuando habla de un asunto no científico, puede sonar igual de ingenuo que cualquier persona no impuesta en la materia. Dado que la cuestión del valor de la ciencia no es una cuestión científica, esta charla estará dedicada a demostrar la tesis que acabo de exponer... predicando con el ejemplo.

UNESCO and partners calls for Interest in Global Forum for Partnerships on Media and Information Literacy

UNESCO and partners calls for Interest in Global Forum for Partnerships on Media and Information Literacy | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

UNESCO and its partners calls on all organisations working in the field of media and information Literacy (MIL) to express interest in the Global Forum for Partnership on MIL (GFPMIL). If your organisation is an NGO, CBO, association, network, training/academic institution, media organisation, regulatory body (such as broadcasting commission), library or other information provider, public or private entity, research institution and is involved in MIL related activities (information literacy, media literacy, digital literacy, news literacy, film literacy etc.), whether online of off line, then this call is relevant to you.
