The Semantic Web Curates the World Data by Surfacing Context, Relationships, and Personalized Meaning

The Semantic Web Curates the World Data by Surfacing Context, Relationships, and Personalized Meaning | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it

Robin Good: The semantic web is all about integrating, capturing and exposing data relationships already existing within the information we generate.

 

From isolated, separate individual information items and streams, the semantic web will take me and you to a new information ecosystem in which the relationships, the connections and the ability to look at data from multiple perspectives are going to be the the main benefit and attraction.

 

Curation is part of this "semantic" process, giving individuals an important role in filtering, organizing, and making sense of the context and relationships existing between apparently unrelated isolated items.

 

We are all working to make better sense of the ocean of information that surrounds us.

 

Grace Nasri brings to light a few examples of internet companies, who have already begun "mapping and graphing the way their customers use, interact with and understand data."

 

-> Google Knowledge Graph

-> Facebook Social Graph

-> FindtheBest 

-> Hunch

 

"As we move towards Web 3.0 and the Semantic Web -- characterized by related, contextualized and personalized data -- there's a growing push for more robust context and relationship mapping."

 

".... a growing number of sites currently creating graphs that relate, connect and map information on the Web; as we move towards a more semantic web, this trend will only continue."

 

Insightful. Resourceful. 7/10

From Maddening to Friendly: A Guide to Deploying iPads at Your School

From Maddening to Friendly: A Guide to Deploying iPads at Your School | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it

From Teacher and Blogger Steve Kinney:

Deploying iPads at any kind of scale is just short of maddening. While the process of tapping around to install one app on one iPad isn’t too bad, installing a dozen apps on hundreds iPads isn’t a particularly appealing way to spend a month. If you are going to deploy iPads at scale, you need a strategy. You need a battle plan. In addition, you will also need to stay hydrated. I don’t think I’ve discovered the silver bullet, but I’ll share some of my experiences with you in order to, hopefully, shorten the learning curve. HTTP://STEVEKINNEY.NET

7 Things You Should Know About iPad Apps for Learning | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it

A thorough and informative article from the folks at Educause and their rightly famous 7 Things series. -JL

 

"The iPad combines robust computational functionality with a screen large enough to serve as a legitimate replacement for printed textbooks and other course materials. Where the iPad applications have led, other tablets and their attendant applications can be expected to follow, creating a more competitive and diverse market for tools of this type. Applications that live in the spaces where education and entertainment overlap can capture the imagination, enticing students to learn on their own."

A Touch of Genius | Saint Mary's University | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it

Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota and Deltak are planning to use the iPad extensively in online graduate programs in Project Management and Organizational Leadership starting in May 2012. Unlike many iPad pilots and projects where the iPad is simply a consumption device, Saint Mary’s is integrating the iPad into the curriculum, and immersive, discipline-specific, learning activities will enable student-to-student, student-to-instructor, and student-to-content interaction.

So, do medical students think that the iPad is enhancing their education? The iPad isn't simply for those who wish to take notes during class. It can enhance the learning experience and help students through some of the most difficult classes in medical school. I'm sure that over the next 1 or 2 years, we'll see some published data on the use of the iPad in medical school.
