Goede tips van Mike.

- Ga uit van wat je leerlingen wilt leren en kijk dan of technologie iets toevoegt. Niet? dan niet inzetten. - Ga niet voor het laatste nieuwe product. Kijk of jouw "apparaat" kan wat jij met leerlingen wilt ondernemen. Misschien wel de beste tip: hou vol. Als iets niet werkt, probeer dan iets anders.

Giving a TED Talk? Expect More Visibility, but Not More Citations - Wired Campus - The Chronicle of Higher Education

Giving a TED Talk? Expect More Visibility, but Not More Citations - Wired Campus - The Chronicle of Higher Education | ICT for TEFL | Scoop.it

While giving a TED Talk may raise an academic’s visibility online, it has little impact on how researchers are viewed within their own disciplines, a new study suggests. Specifically, the study found that giving a presentation at TED, an annual conference on technology and society, appears to have no effect on the number of citations a scholar’s work receives after a video of the presentation goes online.

The study was led by Cassidy R. Sugimoto, an assistant professor of library and information science at Indiana University at Bloomington. An article describing its findings, “Scientists Popularizing Science: Characteristics and Impact of TED Talk Presenters,” was published on April 30 in the journal PLoS One.

In the study, Ms. Sugimoto and her co-authors sought to shed light on how science is popularized within a field as well as among the public. Their findings dispute one conclusion of a 2002 study that decried the news media as contributing to negative public perceptions of science and technology. But the media outlets for scientific communication have expanded rapidly since then, particularly in online formats like TED Talks, which surpassed the one-billion-views mark last November.

The authors of the new study found that TED Talks given by academic presenters were actually preferred by those watching the videos online, demonstrating “positive associations with science and technology information.” However, they found no corresponding increase “in the traditional metric of academic capital: citations.”

Marilyn Korhonen's curator insight, June 20, 2013 10:21 AM

The future is not about a single device or set of devices. According to this author,


"The future is about access, anywhere learning and collaboration, both locally and globally. Teaching and learning is going to be social. Schoolsof the future could have a traditional cohort of students, as well as online only students who live across the country or even the world. Things are already starting to move this way with the emergence of massive open online courses (MOOCs)."

Jennifer Shackles's curator insight, July 6, 2013 7:44 PM

Some valid points made.
