Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, May 23, 2013 12:34 PM

"The open-source (or “free” or “libre”) software movement centers around a single ideal: community ownership of software. Open-source software may or may not be free-as-in-beer (no cost), but it is always free-as-in-speech. Not only do users have the right to use the software, but users, developers, and re-developers have the rights to access, manipulate, break, rebuild the original code to fix bugs, add features, or create new projects. Open-source software is licensed in a semi-restrictive way. Limitations are placed on the use of the software that preserve the rights of the community (such as the requirement that all derivative versions use the same license). The author gives up the sole right to sell, distribute, and create derivative works in order to preserve those rights for the community, of which the author is, of course, a member."

Thank you for sharing.

Tonya Ward Singer's curator insight, January 31, 8:57 AM

Provocative article, especially the questions at the bottom, including: What happens when students don't know what they don't know?

 

I ask this for us as communities and a socieity, what happens when we don't know what we don't know?     

 

History has some terrifying answers on what people can do collectively when locked into a set idea of "knowledge."   

 

How can we best leverage technology to support students as critical thinkers, curious and empowered?

How TO Host A Scoopit Newsletter / Landingpage FREE on Google Drive

How TO Host A Scoopit Newsletter / Landingpage FREE on Google Drive | Digital Media Technology ePortfolio Resources By: Gerry Mc Cann | Scoop.it

Found A Cool Use for Scoop.it's new Newsletter feature. It is easy to create a content landing page and host it free with Google Drive. 

Here's How...

1. Create a newsletter using the Manage > Create A Newsletter


2. Download as a Zip file. Open the Zip file.


3. Upload the HTML file to your Google drive into a public folder.


4. Click on the HTML file. A window pops up, click on OPEN in lower right corner. 


5. Click on preview. Copy the URL that appears in the browser window:

https://googledrive.com/host/0B0eG3a8zValDQjl6aldwQlJMNDg/email%203.html ;

Next figuring out how to add a Call To Action and subscription code.  BTW, Unbounce charges $700 a year to host landing pages :). 


Also works on DropBox. 

The Free Alternative
The interesting question is could you create a web marketing business with NO money for websites or blogs? Yes is the answer to that question. By using free tools such as Google Drive, Scoop.it and Blogger or WordPress you could create a business without paying anything to web development. 

You might find that business is limited in scale, but so what. Your cost is  limited to your sweat equity to create a revenue stream and THEN buy the website improvements you need to go to the next level. I just build a MagentoGo store (Story of Cancer Store: http://storyofcancer.gostorego.com/ ;) and the same thing is ALMOST true for Ecom.


Between Storify, Volusion and Magento you can create a store for sweat equity + $500 (give or take). My little store has already made $130 inside of its first month so well on its way to paying for its serving costs. 

The ultimate lesson of crowdfunding and crowdsourcing is DO NOTHING until it is worth the investment to do so :).

A Detailed History Of Social Media - Infographic

A Detailed History Of Social Media - Infographic | Digital Media Technology ePortfolio Resources By: Gerry Mc Cann | Scoop.it

Do you know the history of social media? Think we'll remember Facebook in 20 years? This detailed timeline is a must-see.

 

Social media began decades before the Facebook era. It started, more or less, with CompuServe and Arpanet back in 1969. A couple years later, the first-ever email was sent.

It has evolved over the past few decades into a powerful tool, as seen in this social media history timeline. With so much that’s happened over the past few decades, we can only guess what’s coming next for social media.

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, May 16, 2013 9:06 PM

As some are raised a Catholic or an atheist or a vegetarian, I was raised an academic. The university always had about it a mystique, a cloud of mystery and veneration. Lauded in my household were the values of objectivity, critical thinking, close reading. As early as the fourth grade, my mother took me to her college Shakespeare classes, introduced me to her professors, and indulged me with lunch at the student union. I attended classes with her throughout her undergraduate study; and for years after, I’d walk through campus simply to absorb the essence of the place. Today, I am as much in love with the endeavor of higher education as I am disappointed by its outcomes.

The reformation of higher education is under way. Whether we agree or not, the vast credentialing system of universities and colleges, the importance placed upon expertise, the value of the degree and the Ph.D., the political economies that oppressthose that form the backbone of the system, the administration of learning, therights of students, and even the act of learning itself are all under scrutiny. It is a scrutiny that’s been in play for years, and has been exacerbated most recently by the advent of the MOOC (massive open online course), the corporatization of education, and the exportation of pedagogy to technologists and private entrepreneurs. Sadly, little is coming forward from this inquisition of education that’s hopeful. Academics and administrators are afraid for their careers, and students and learners of all ages are looking openly at other options (other options that enterprising speculators are at the ready to provide).

Dr. Steven F. Simmons's curator insight, May 17, 2013 5:06 AM
