Tania Sheko's curator insight, July 13, 2013 6:33 AM

We’re instructing students to do what comes easily. If you use books, you’re probably safe if the words “university press” appears on the title page. Limit your database search to scholarly articles. The assumption is that research that looks like scholarship is innately superior to other sorts of research, but we might as well be telling students that storks bring babies. I’d bet on the research that went into a New Yorker piece by John McPhee or Seymour Hersh against a large proportion of scholarly articles any day, and they have the added benefit of being understandable. We aren’t really teaching students to think, we’re teaching them to judge books by their covers.

This is a quick guide to what's palgiarized and what's acceptable paraphrasing. Good for middle school students, and especially for Harry Potter fans!

The Future Of Web 2.0 Websites (Possibly Web 3.0)

The Future Of Web 2.0 Websites (Possibly Web 3.0) | info lit | Scoop.it
Web 2.0 is the terminology assigned to define websites that have been refurbished from an earlier version of the internet.

 

Since most Web 2.0 features are free, websites such as Facebook, Wikipedia, etc. have developed remarkably fast and, as these sites grow, more innovative features are being added using new technologies. In fact, Web 2.0 will continue to grow in the future. 

 

The simultaneous growth of these new trends is outside the scope of Web 2.0’s definition and this is where the next generation of the internet will begin. The third generation of the internet – the Web 3.0 – will completely alter social networking.

 

‘Web 3.0’ is a network of information that can be routed both directly or indirectly using computers and includes television quality video, three dimensional reproductions of images, enhanced reality, man-made semantic barometers, and the all-encompassing sensors – wireless and broadband.

Liveti Liiveti's curator insight, March 14, 2013 7:30 PM

With the evergrowing usage of social networking and video sharing mediums by contemporary society, it was inevitable that such an idea as Web 3.0 would be brought up. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc. have some form of impact on everyone's daily lives. I myself constantly check my Facebook news feed, sadly even once every 5 minutes. This article states that the idea of Web 3.0 'will completely alter social networking', this is something that I will anxiously await to see. How will the general public react to such alterations? Will it be too much of a jump?

 

Facebook changes, such as the conversion from profile views to timelines (http://mashable.com/2012/02/07/dislike-facebook-timeline/) and the introduction of Graph Search (http://maximizesocialmedia.com/social-media-agencygraph-it-facebooks-graph-search-the-future-of-social-media), have been met with some very negative reviews. Many have panned these changes as they have been so accustomed to previous versions.

 

Web 3.0 will completely alter social networking, but is that a good thing?

 

 

Adam Woodbridge's curator insight, March 26, 11:55 PM

As computers and software progress, so does the internet. Millions of people use the internet everyday and it has to be improved constantly. Web 3.0 is the next level of internet which will be a greater tool than Web 2.0 is at gathering and producing information, and connecting people. 

Derek Phillips's curator insight, March 28, 3:44 AM

Due to the web rapidly grows in both users and content, it has, for many people, become a part of everyday life, whether it be in the workplace or for personal use. As a result of this, it is essential to improve the capability and resources available publicly through the web. This is being done within Web 3.0.

Teacher's Guide to Information Crap Detection | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Teacher's Guide to Information Crap Detection | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | info lit | Scoop.it

Information overload, information crap,information pollution...are some of the words that are being used now to describe the tsunami of irrelevant information we are bombarded with day and night.In  December 2009, Google began customizing its search results for all users, and we entered a new era of personalization. With little notice or fanfare, our online experience is changing, as the websites we visit are increasingly tailoring themselves to us.Everywhere you turn you find information that seems relevant to you but in fact is nothing but crap. This is probably why Eli Pariser recommended what he called Information Bubble.

 

Howard Rheingold is another guy who has done a lot of writings on Information Crap. I have already reviewed his awesome book Net Smart: How to Thrive Online in an article posted last year. Today I am sharirng with you some of the great resources I learned from Howard himself about how to detect crap information and the literacies we need to develop and teach to our students to make them better internet users. Check out the links below and share with us what you think of them. Enjoy
