Using algorithms to link-up researchers

Using algorithms to link-up researchers | CME-CPD | Scoop.it

Scientists are developing algorithms that can connect researchers across the world who have similar interests by scanning the content of academic papers. 

Researchers at TEAM, an EU-funded project, are using algorithms to quantify the extent to which scientific papers cover similar ground, and are looking at ways to profile scientists by the documents they have searched for. They are also developing technology that can facilitate searches of research papers. (...) - by Peter O'Donnell, in Horizon, 05 August 2013

Nonostante l'idiosincrasia verso la condivisione di conoscenza in ambito scientifico forse un giorno non troppo lontano ciò sarà superato almeno in parte ....

L'idiosincrasia verso la condivisione è un retaggio del passato. Non è facilmente rimovibile ma il modo SOCIAL di lavorare attraverso i MEDIA, ovvero i vantaggi che questo offre, lo rende sempre meno strategia praticata. Vedremo ...!!!

I really think that social media and other tools to research and dig out data from the network will change the Academia and Research world.

We wait for this change (and push).

Surely it's part of CPD's role to help science become practice.

 

No more than a third of evidence-based clinical guideline recommendations are routinely adhered to. That has to be considered as disappointing. That between 20% and 30% of clinical interventions may be unnecessary or even harmful - that's slightly scrary.

 

As CPD enablers, I think that we should be looking very closely at how we can help evidence-based guidelines become common practice, improving patient outcomes.

Exploring Curation as a core competency in digital and media literacy education | Mihailidis | Journal of Interactive Media in Education

Exploring Curation as a core competency in digital and media literacy education | Mihailidis | Journal of Interactive Media in Education | CME-CPD | Scoop.it

Abstract: In today's hypermedia landscape, youth and young adults are increasingly using social media platforms, online aggregators and mobile applications for daily information use. Communication educators, armed with a host of free, easy-to-use online tools, have the ability to create dynamic approaches to teaching and learning about information and communication flow online. In this paper we explore the concept of curation as a student- and creation-driven pedagogical tool to enhance digital and media literacy education. We present a theoretical justification for curation and present six key ways that curation can be used to teach about critical thinking, analysis and expression online. We utilize a case study of the digital curation platform Storify to explore how curation works in the classroom, and present a framework that integrates curation pedagogy into core media literacy education learning outcomes.

Keywords: Media Literacy, Curation, Civic Engagement, Digital Learning

The value of being a skilled curator of digital media  should not be underestimated. This article is a good foundational piece on the topic, and also on the need to incorporate curation into digital media instruction.
