The Inter Life Project « tel.ac.uk | Digital Teesside | Scoop.it

How can we harness the power of 3D virtual words (Second Life™, Open Sim) to help young people develop social skills and navigate difficult transitions in their lives? The Inter-life project team have developed 3D private islands to help answer this question. The team are looking at two groups, the first are gifted and talented and looked after and accommodated children and the second are first year university students. Visitors to the islands can engage in creative and confidence building activities in a safe and supportive online environment.

RFC 1855 - Netiquette Guidelines

Network Working Group S. Hambridge
Request For Comments: 1855 Intel Corp.
FYI: 28 October 1995
Category: Informational

 

This document provides a minimum set of guidelines for Network


Etiquette (Netiquette) which organizations may take and adapt for their own use. As such, it is deliberately written in a bulleted format to make adaptation easier and to make any particular item easy (or easier) to find.

 

It also functions as a minimum set of guidelines for individuals, both users and administrators.

This memo is the product of the Responsible Use of the Network (RUN) Working Group of the IETF.

 

===> Reminder: Netiquette exists since 1995!!! <===

Learning, Freedom and the Web

Learning, Freedom and the Web | Digital Teesside | Scoop.it

An online compelation of insights and predictions about the future of learning and the central part that the web will play in that shpere. The components for this eBook have been compiled from contributors to Mozilla's Learning Freedom and the Web Festival held in Barcelona in 2010. Mark Surman, Executive Director of Mozilla, summarised that event in the following way:

 

"Barcelona sparked a conversation about how the future of learning and the future of the web are intertwined, and about the role both play in fueling creativity, innovation and common wealth. This is a conversation that is growing as we speak.

Hopefully, this book will help you find an entry point into this conversation. A place to grab hold so you can tinker, hack and make the future of learning in your own way"

 

Read all about the seeds of the educational revolution here.

Minority Report meets Microsoft Surface

Minority Report meets Microsoft Surface | Digital Teesside | Scoop.it

iDesk Concept, Provides A Glimpse Of A Future Workspace.

 

Adam Benton, the designer of this iDesk concept explains how it works: "The desk could sync with your Mac or potentially have a Mac built in, perhaps with a portion of the desk’s surface angled upward to serve as a display. Tactile keyboards could likewise be replaced by a digital touch-sensitive version (endlessly configurable to your preferences for individual apps), and any part of the desk’s surface could be cordoned off as a trackpad area. Files could be transferred easily between Macs, iPhones, iPads, and so on by sitting the devices on the desk and swiping file icons across its surface from one device to the other.”

 

Thanks to Deloste for the great pick!

Pop-Up Human Capital: A new employment/educational model for teacherpreneurs. | Digital Teesside | Scoop.it

Around the world, it's becoming easier than ever to sell your human capital - the sum total of your knowledge, experiences and talents - to the highest bidder. Using new P2P marketplaces like Sidetour and Gidsy, you can sell a lifetime’s worth of experiences and memories the same way you might sell a pair of used shoes. Using educational marketplaces like Skillshare, you can sell your esoteric knowledge to people with an interest in a specific topic. New avenues to explore for teacherpreneurs.
