Beth Dichter's curator insight, November 30, 2013 5:50 PM

This chart looks at the difference between a fixed mindset and a growth mindset by looking at eight areas:

* Desire

* Evaluation of situations

* Dealing with setbacks

* Challenges

* Effort

* Criticism

* Success of others

* Result...

You may want to share this with students or other teachers at your school.

Phil Turner's curator insight, December 1, 2013 5:50 PM

Learning experientially can be more or less painful ... depending on your mindset.  You can pick your mindset, and this checklist helps you reflect on what mode you are operating in.

luiy's curator insight, November 23, 2013 6:57 AM

Big Data is the new medium of the second decade of the twenty-first century: a new set of computing technologies that, like the ones that preceded it, is changing the way in which we access reality. Now that the Social Web has become the new laboratory for cultural production, the Digital Humanities are focusing on analysing the production and distribution of cultural products on a mass scale, in order to participate in designing and questioning the means that have made it possible. As such, their approach has shifted to looking at how culture is produced and distributed, and this brings them up against the challenges of a new connected culture.

 

5,264,802 text documents, 1,735,435 audio files, 1,403,785 videos, and over two billion web pages that can be accessed through the WayBack Machine make up the inventory of the Internet Archive at the time of writing. Then there are also the works of over 7,500 avant-garde artists archived as videos, pdfs, sound files, and television and radio programmes on UBUWEB, the more than 4,346,267 entries in 241 languages submitted by the 127,156 active users that make up Wikipedia, and the ongoing contributions of more than 500 million users on Twitter. And these are just a few examples of the new virtual spaces where knowledge is stored and shared: open access, collaboratively created digital archives, wikis and social networks in which all types of hybridisations coexist, and where encounters between different types of media and content take place. As a whole, they generate a complex environment that reveals our culture as a constantly evolving process.

Science as an open enterprise; towards all scientific literature online, all data online, and for them to interoperate

Science as an open enterprise; towards all scientific literature online, all data online, and for them to interoperate | Digital Humanities and Linked Data | Scoop.it

The Science as an open enterprise report highlights the need to grapple with the huge deluge of data created by modern technologies in order to preserve the principle of openness and to exploit data in ways that have the potential to create a second open science revolution.

Exploring massive amounts of data using modern digital technologies has enormous potential for science and its application in public policy and business. The report maps out the changes that are required by scientists, their institutions and those that fund and support science if this potential is to be realised.

Areas for action

Six key areas for action are highlighted in the report:

 

Scientists need to be more open among themselves and with the public and media

 

Greater recognition needs to be given to the value of data gathering, analysis and communication

 

Common standards for sharing information are required to make it widely usable

 

Publishing data in a reusable form to support findings must be mandatory

 

More experts in managing and supporting the use of digital data are required

 

New software tools need to be developed to analyse the growing amount of data being gathered

Bettina Ascaino's curator insight, December 3, 2013 5:37 PM

Robin Good's insight:

 

 Docubase is a project of the MIT Open Documentary Lab that aims to create a collaborative, participatory community around a growing collection of innovative documentaries curated by experts and outsiders alike.

 

Documentaries can be searched and sorted easily in a number of ways (most recent, most viewed, alphabetical order / or as a list rather than a mosaic). The interface is slick, colorful and simple to use.

 

More than 140 documentaries are already available and a selected group of curators has put together a number of publicly available playlists designed aroound key themes connecting these clips. 

 

Playlists: http://docubase.upian.com/playlist/ 

 

The curators: http://docubase.upian.com/curator/ 

 

A fantastic resource for documentary lovers and a great example of how in an open and participatory project, curation can play a fundamental role.

 

Free to use.
