Twitter Literacy (I refuse to make up a Twittery name for it) ~ Howard Rheingold

Twitter Literacy (I refuse to make up a Twittery name for it) ~ Howard Rheingold | Education Futures | Scoop.it

by Howard Rheingold

 

"Twitter is one of a growing breed of part-technological, part-social communication media that require some skills to use productively. Sure, Twitter is banal and trivial, full of self-promotion and outright spam. So is the Internet. The difference between seeing Twitter as a waste of time or as a powerful new community amplifier depends entirely on how you look at it – on knowing how to look at it.

 

"When I started requiring digital journalism students to learn how to use Twitter, I didn’t have the list of journalistic uses for Twitter that I have compiled by now. So I logged onto the service and broadcast a request. “I have a classroom full of graduate students in journalism who don’t know who to follow. Does anybody have a suggestion?” Within ten minutes, we had a list of journalists to follow, including one who was boarding Air Force One at that moment, joining the White House press corps accompanying the President to Africa."

Learning Management System is the latest and most effective learning platform today and it has paved the way for new methods of education. MYVLE offers a virtual learning environment for both instructors and students. To learn more about LMS, please visit http://www.myvle.com/.
M.A.P.'s curator insight, August 13, 2013 6:43 PM

"Eventually, MOOCs will evolve beyond the delivery of online courses to becoming a pervasive resource where open access to cutting-edge university research (as well as teaching) will play a pivotal role in guiding the decisions of individuals in matters that affect their lives the most."  This is the ideal objective.  As the commenter said at the end of the article, the low penetration of Internet, language constraint, local knowledge, etc. are all barriers at present.

Connectivism as a Digital Age Learning Theory

George Siemens and Stephen Downes developed a theory for the digital age, called connectivism, denouncing boundaries of behaviorism, cognitivism, and constructivism. Their proposed learning theory has issued a debate over whether it is a learning theory or instructional theory or merely a pedagogical view.

CSIRAC: Australia’s first computer

CSIRAC: Australia’s first computer | Education Futures | Scoop.it

Australia's first computer, CSIR Mark 1 (later called CSIRAC, the CSIR Automatic Computer), was the fourth in the world to be built. It filled a room the size of a double garage, required enough electricity to power a suburban street and had only a fraction of the brainpower of the cheapest modern electronic organiser. But it was a technological marvel of its time.

It was built in the late 1940s by CSIR scientists Dr Trevor Pearcey, Mr Maston Beard and Mr Geoff Hill, which put Australia at the forefront of computing. It revolutionised everything from weather forecasting to banking. It even played what is thought to be the first ever computer music.
