How Technology Trends Have Influenced the Classroom

How Technology Trends Have Influenced the Classroom | Digital Humanities. Knowledge and education on the digital age | Scoop.it
Teachers all over America are faced with this challenge of keeping students engaged in the classroom when their world outside of school is one of constant engagement and stimulation. Knowing the world outside of our institutional walls is only one step in addressing modern learning styles. How to act and adjust schools today is the next step in making the classroom of today ready for tomorrow.

sandra alvaro's insight:

Between societal changes and technological breakthroughs, it’s become abundantly clear that the human brain is transforming the way it processes and learns information. While there are many discussions about whether or not this is good or bad for us as a society, it’s definitely a change.

IEML: A Project for a New Humanism. An interview with Pierre Lévy | CCCB LAB

IEML: A Project for a New Humanism. An interview with Pierre Lévy | CCCB LAB | Digital Humanities. Knowledge and education on the digital age | Scoop.it

Pierre Lévy is a philosopher and a pioneer in the study of the impact of the Internet on human knowledge and culture. In Collective Intelligence. Mankind’s Emerging World in Cyberspace, published in French in 1994 (English translation in 1999), he describes a kind of collective intelligence that extends everywhere and is constantly evaluated and coordinated in real time, a collective human intelligence, augmented by new information technologies and the Internet. Since then, he has been working on a major undertaking: the creation of IEML (Information Economy Meta Language), a tool for the augmentation of collective intelligence by means of the algorithm medium. IEML, which already has its own grammar, is a metalanguage that includes the semantic dimension, making it computable. This in turn allows a reflexive representation of collective intelligence processes.

Mlik Sahib's curator insight, March 26, 4:51 PM

"People have to accept their personal and collective responsibility. Because every time we create a link, every time we “like” something, every time we create a hashtag, every time we buy a book on Amazon, and so on, we transform the relational structure of the common memory. So we have a great deal of responsibility for what happens online. Whatever is happening is the result of what all the people are doing together; the Internet is an expression of human collective intelligence.

Therefore, we also have to develop critical thinking. Everything that you find on the Internet is the expression of particular points of view, that are neither neutral nor objective, but an expression of active subjectivities. Where does the money come from? Where do the ideas come from? What is the author’s pragmatic context? And so on. The more we know the answers to these questions, the greater the transparency of the source… and the more it can be trusted. This notion of making the source of information transparent is very close to the scientific mindset. Because scientific knowledge has to be able to answer questions such as: Where did the data come from? Where does the theory come from? Where do the grants come from? Transparency is the new objectivity."

The European Library and Europeana have both an extensive experience in aggregating metadata for bibliographical records or digital resources from the cultural heritage institutions of Europe. For both of them meeting the challenges offered by multilingual and heterogeneous data is an ongoing effort. The growth of the Semantic Web and the more generalised publication of knowledge organization systems as Linked Open Data offer the possibility to make these services truly multilingual.

The Evolving Classroom: Creating Experiential Learning Spaces (EDUCAUSE Review) | EDUCAUSE.edu | Digital Humanities. Knowledge and education on the digital age | Scoop.it

Research shows that experiential learning enhances student engagement and success. For example, a meta-analysis of 225 previously published studies on the effects of active learning in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) courses revealed active learning's benefits.1 The analysis showed that students in traditional lecture sections are 1.5 times more likely to fail than students in active learning settings. Moreover, course grades were six percent higher when instructors used an active learning pedagogy. Students scoring in the 50th percentile in traditional lecture sections moved to the 68th percentile in active learning sections. Overall, the analysis projected that 3,516 fewer students would have failed STEM courses had instructors employed active learning approaches.

Metadata and the Right to Own an Archival Collection |

Metadata and the Right to Own an Archival Collection | | Digital Humanities. Knowledge and education on the digital age | Scoop.it

 left off last month promising details of how the work of early nineteenth-century American antiquarians has, over the last two centuries, morphed into the work of cataloging, archiving, and collecting, of how the “science” of antiquarianism has become the “science” of information. To address this shift, we might start by looking at how the work of librarians in creating metadata was understood as these organizing and ordering processes emerged in the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries. Specifically, the work of metadata creation became a performance of ownership of the “data” it describes, a way of asserting an institution’s right, not in the legal sense, but in the realm of cultural preservation and humanist endeavors, to own a collection. Let me offer an example.

Net Neutrality and the Future of Museums Online | Museums and the Web

Net Neutrality and the Future of Museums Online | Museums and the Web | Digital Humanities. Knowledge and education on the digital age | Scoop.it
sandra alvaro's insight:

We at Museums and the Web are deeply concerned about the impact of the new Internet regulations proposed by FCC Chairman, Tom Wheeler. The  new rules would allow ISPs to charge a premium for those (wealthy companies) who can afford to pay to deliver their content better and faster to their online audiences. Needless to say, museums, libraries and archives, not to mention artists, writers, scholars, and everyone else publishing digital content online without the financial backing of global conglomerates like ESPN, Disney, Google, Yahoo, Apple, (fill in the blank) would struggle to compete. It’s not hard to imagine a scenario in which the only way museum content gets seen online is if the museum has done a deal with a major online publisher.

The What-If Machine Project

The What-If Machine Project | Digital Humanities. Knowledge and education on the digital age | Scoop.it
sandra alvaro's insight:

In Computational Creativity research, we study how to engineer software which can take on some of the creative responsibility in arts and science projects. There has been much progress towards the creative generation of artefacts of cultural value such as poems, music and paintings. Often, when produced by people, such artefacts embed a fictional idea invented by the creator. For instance, an artist might have the fictional idea: [What if there was a quiz show, where each week someone was shot dead?] and express this through a painting, poem or film. While such ideation is clearly central to creativity, with obvious applications to the creative industries, there have only been a few small, ad-hoc studies of how to automate fictional ideation. The time is therefore ripe to see whether we can derive, implement and test novel formalisms and processes which enable software to not only invent, but assess, explore and present such ideas

Innovation Excellence | How Technology Is Changing The Skills We Need To Learn

Innovation Excellence | How Technology Is Changing The Skills We Need To Learn | Digital Humanities. Knowledge and education on the digital age | Scoop.it
I think the question itself is misplaced. Clearly, we use technology to do things for us that we no longer are doing for ourselves and that means certain abilities degenerate. Yet, it also means that we are freeing up cognitive energy for other things. So what’s really important is not the skills we are losing but those that we need to develop.

sandra alvaro's insight:

"To keep our work more daring and innovative, news leaders have been creating interdisciplinary teams in order to boost creative possibilities, hiring talent outside of traditional journalism, from backgrounds in technology, statistics, or art. One result of this is that some of our visual presentation of data has begun to skew toward a more specialized audience. In doing that, we’re losing readers because we’re not taking our audience’s visual literacy into account."

A variety of writers’ summations of their reasoning for media education. These will be context specific and at times may feel at odds with one another.
