Why journalists love Reddit for its brains, not just its beauty | Innovation and the knowledge economy | Scoop.it
For years Reddit has been used by journalists as a source of stories and ideas — but most outlets have preferred to keep their addiction quiet. Now, thanks in large part to President Obama, it doesn't have to be their dirty little secret any more.

How public libraries promote digital inclusion - The Digital Post

How public libraries promote digital inclusion - The Digital Post | Innovation and the knowledge economy | Scoop.it
In its “New Skills Agenda for Europe”, the European Commission outlines the need to spread digital skills and fight digital exclusion and acknowledges the important contribution of public libraries. In one year, 4.6 million Europeans accessed the internet for the first time at their public library and 2.3 million people attended digital literacy courses in libraries.

What does it mean to be digitally literate? The European Commission has its indicators: starting from browsing, searching and filtering information, to protecting personal data and coding. From the growing need for digital skills in the workplace, to benefiting from a range of services such as e-government and online banking, a baseline of digital skills is vital to full participation in modern society.

The danger is that with the digital revolution, we risk leaving many people behind. Nearly half of the EU has insufficient digital skills and nearly one in five people has never used the internet.

Older people and marginalised groups are especially at risk of digital exclusion. But the issue of digital illiteracy is also systemic in education; only 30% of students in the EU can be considered as digitally competent.

Open access is not free. Someone is doing the work.  Someone is paying | Innovation and the knowledge economy | Scoop.it
Much of what's being said in support of open access publishing misses one key point: that is there is always a value chain and costs are incurred. Someone somewhere is paying for open access.

A MAKER CULTURE:  Flexible makerspaces teach students to take risks, inspiring a deeper form of learning @LFlemingEDU  | Innovation and the knowledge economy | Scoop.it
The Maker Movement, which originated as communal, community work spaces, has served as an impetus for school leaders to critically reflect on their school’s learning spaces. Do they meet the needs of learners today? Do they foster and inspire creativity, provide flexible opportunities to learn, and address unique and specific interests? The resulting makerspaces encourage open-ended exploration, providing unique learning environments that best serve 21st century learners. Used as they were originally intended—as open, communal environments dedicated to making of all types—makerspaces are indifferent to distinctions such as academic potential, social barriers, and even levels of language development, allowing the opportunity for every child to invent, tinker, create, innovate, make, and do.

7 Things That Are Ruining Amateur Book Reviews

7 Things That Are Ruining Amateur Book Reviews | Innovation and the knowledge economy | Scoop.it
Amazon, Goodreads, LibraryThing. I was excited when these outlets for amateur book reviews showed up. Finally, I could tell these snooty book reviewers, these Kakutanis, to take their five-dollar words and...ingurgitate them wholly.

But that excitement came and went a long time ago. It was a different time. I was young. Excited about the future. I hadn’t yet seen the horrors to come.

My mistake was thinking, for a brief moment, that something could be turned over to the crowd, and that the crowd would handle this new power well.

You all are screwing up your amateur book reviews. Here’s how.

Green OA and the Interoperability of Institutional Repositories

Green OA and the Interoperability of Institutional Repositories | Innovation and the knowledge economy | Scoop.it
The increase of Open Access (OA), as a percentage of all peer-reviewed research articles, is not in dispute. There are even scientific studies on the rate of increase and its significance. Given the ascendency of OA, researchers and libraries must address some basic issues resulting from a movement that has no single, unified standard.
One major concern involves the Green OA model, which consists of self-archiving work into various open access repositories, like Cornell’s arXiv.

How India can close its digital divide

How India can close its digital divide | Innovation and the knowledge economy | Scoop.it
India’s digital start-ups have an analogue problem. They face a kagaz ka pahad (in English this means "mountains of paper"). Literally. Many of them are designing for the digital desh of Bunty, the 37-year-old Udaipur shoe-seller who gets 40% of his business on his smartphone. Or, Chaitanya Bharti, Guntur’s 30-year-old single-room school teacher who gets remittances on her basic phone.

But every time they collect and store paper records, scrutinize “wet signatures”, and handle lots of physical cash, they can’t grow as fast, become more affordable or innovate as much as they'd like.
