Robin Good's curator insight, April 27, 11:28 AM



Bento is a website that, thanks to its author Jon Chan and the many user contributions, has gathered, organized and curated the very best resources available online where you can learn how to code.


From html to javascript, ruby, php, Java, perl, Bento offers learning guidance for over 80 different technologies and coding languages. 


Here is how Jon Chan, a 23 years old who launched this project in September of 2013, describes Bento: 

"Bento is what I would have liked to have when I was learning to code.


I started learning to code when I was very young - about ten years old. Then, the only things I had available were what I could find online and through a few dense books.


Now, people have the exact opposite problem: how do you break through the noise and find what's actually valuable to learn?


This site is here to help you figure that out."

 

Bento is a perfect example of effective content curation as it does not simply collect and list all of the resources available to learn each language but it only suggests the very best ones, organizing them in easy, medium and hard and providing also "best of" / direct solutions that save readers lots of valuable time.


Free to use. 


Useful, simple and immediate to use. Well organized. 9/10

Emerging Nations Embrace Internet, Mobile Technology

Emerging Nations Embrace Internet, Mobile Technology | DigitalSociety | Scoop.it

Survey Report In a remarkably short period of time, internet and mobile technology have become a part of everyday life for some in the emerging and developing world. Cell phones, in particular, are almost omnipresent in many nations. The internet has also made tremendous inroads, although most people in the 24 nations surveyed are still offline.

PaolaRicaurte's insight:

Meanwhile, smartphones are still relatively rare, although significant minorities own these devices in countries such as Lebanon, Chile, Jordan and China.

People around the world are using their cell phones for a variety of purposes, especially for texting and taking pictures, while smaller numbers also use their phones to get political, consumer and health information. Mobile technology is also changing economic life in parts of Africa, where many are using cell phones to make or receive payments.

Las redes sociales son más frágiles, jerárquicas y cambiantes de lo que se creía

PaolaRicaurte's insight:

El estudio de las redes sociales del 15-M muestra que la estructura de la comunicación en las protestas digitales es más centralizada y jerárquica de lo que indica la imagen que se proyecta entre el público general. Esta es una de las principales conclusiones de las investigaciones llevadas a cabo por la socióloga Sandra González-Bailón,profesora de la Annenberg School for Communication de la Universidad de Pensilvania.

Education 3.0 and the Pedagogy (Andragogy, Heutagogy) of Mobile Learning

Education 3.0 and the Pedagogy (Andragogy, Heutagogy) of Mobile Learning | DigitalSociety | Scoop.it

Many educators are doing Education 1.0; talking about doing Education 2.0; when they should be planning and implementing Education 3.0. This post compares the developments of the Internet-Web to those of education. The Internet has become an integral thread of the tapestries of most societies throughout the globe. The web influences people’s way of thinking, doing and being; and people influence the development and content of the web.

The one point I really like is the definition of Education 3.0 - planning and implementing education.  The key is being thoroughly infused and reinvented.

How the FLOK Society Brings a Commons Approach to Ecuador’s Economy

How the FLOK Society Brings a Commons Approach to Ecuador’s Economy | DigitalSociety | Scoop.it

Mlik Sahib's curator insight, March 9, 9:26 PM

"That was the starting point for FLOK. We created a proposal for an investigative process that would be carried out in conversation with the Ecuadorian public and the local, regional, and international scientific communities. At the end of the process, our goal is to create ten “base” documents from which policies can be drafted to enable Ecuador’s transition to a shared and free knowledge society for industry, education, scientific research, public institutions, infrastructure, etc.

I should also note that together with the government, civil society initiatives and social movements in Ecuador have a long history of contributing to a common, open knowledge society. This aspiration positions Ecuador within a global community of Internet activists, researchers, hackers, and commoners of all kinds who have long been waiting to join a political, social, and institutional commitment to designing a new economy and society based on the principles of a free knowledge commons.

Bethany Horne: Can you tell us more about the concept of good living and how it relates to the FLOK Society?

Daniel Vazquez: The concept of good living means harmony, equality, fairness, and solidarity. It’s antithetical to the accumulation of wealth or infinite economic growth that isn't shared in common. The Plan of Good Living defines "good living" as a way of life that allows for happiness and cultural and environmental diversity. Good living is also an indigenous concept, known in Ecuador and other Andean countries as Sumak Kawsay, a Kichwa phrase. For us, Sumak Kawsay is a product of Sumak Yachay, which means good knowledge. Shared economic prosperity comes from the sharing of knowledge, effort, and technology. The Plan of Good Living establishes a clear framework for the creation of a peer-to-peer, knowledge-based economy in Ecuador."

Cultura de red

Cultura de red | DigitalSociety | Scoop.it

Olvídate de la tecnología. Imagina que Internet no existe. Ahora intenta pensar qué es una red. Una parrafito del libro El origen de las especies de  Charles Darwin puede ayudarte: “Pájaros cantando en los arbustos, con varios insectos alrededor, con gusanos arrastrándose a través de la húmeda tierra, formando un banco enredado que  depende de cada elemento de tantas maneras complejas”. Ya tenemos la imagen que necesitamos: varios elementos relacionados, una red.

Facebook friends are real friends | DigitalSociety | Scoop.it
PaolaRicaurte's insight:

Digial dualism is the misplaced notion that the online and offline spheres are separate from one another. In 2011, the Pew Reserch Center's Internet and American Life Project published a report that shows how we utilize social media outlets to enhance the connections we've made offline, as opposed to having two groups of "real life" and "virtual" friends. This data supports the theory that we live in an augmented reality where our online and offline lives are enmeshed.
