About eight years ago, I had a profound professional awakening. In a moment of clarity, I realized that the world was changing far more rapidly than I had ever imagined. I recognized that the traditionally staid world of market research would be turned upside down by a series of cultural and technological currents that would permanently change the landscape and future of an industry.

 cross-disciplinary team from University College London and King’s College London explores how scholarly work in the Arts and Humanities will be produced, read, shared, and preserved in coming years, and investigates key questions around the changing state and modern contexts of the academic book.

Unesco publishes its Open Access Curriculum online

Unesco publishes its Open Access Curriculum online | Innovation and the knowledge economy | Scoop.it

Within the overall framework of Unesco’s strategy on Open Access (OA) to scientific information and research, the international organisation has just made a complete set of nine Open Access modules for researchers and library schools available online. 

 

These OA curricula include a set of customised modules which can easily be fitted with the educational needs of different stakeholders and can be integrated with any sensitisation programmes of OA.

 

These curricula will soon be converted into self-directed e-learning tools, which will enable users to self-assess their knowledge on OA and take a learning pace that is initiated and directed by the learners themselves.

 

Unesco also aims to strengthen this initiative by translating the OA curricula into several languages that will increase their reach and impact.

 

Also, with the support of the UK, Unesco has launched its new Transparency Portal, intended to present comprehensive, quality and timely information about the organisation’s projects around the world and ensure that aid effectively contributes to sustainable development.

 

Since its creation 70 years ago, Unesco has championed the causes of education, culture, natural sciences, social and human sciences, communication and information, globally. With this new Transparency Portaland its ongoing Open Access initiatives, the organisation increases its commitment to free and universal knowledge for the benefit of innovation and socio-economic development.

Building inclusive Knowledge Societies through information and communication” is one of the key objectives for UNESCO’s Medium-Term Strategy. By adopting this objective, UNESCO Member States have recognized that knowledge plays a key role in economic growth, social development, cultural enrichment and democratic empowerment. This decision of the Members States has influenced UNESCO‘s Open Access program, through which the organization received a unique mandate to work on OA policy issues; bridge knowledge pools on OA across the world and build capacities to better understand Open Access.

No one said this would be easy. Leadership” has historically referred to “industrial leadership” – the managerial styles and structures that served industrial firms well for a century. But the leadership of digital businesses in the post-industrial age is fundamentally different and is defined by five paradoxes. Understanding them can help digital leaders identify and develop the capabilities they will need to transform the firm from a traditional to fully digital enterprise.

The Key Value of Content Curation: Enhancing Who We Are

Robin Good's insight:

 

 

"When we curate content online, it enhances who we are, both in the sense of... - we learn things, and we help to define ourselves by understanding our own interests - and in a more external way, by allowing other people to better understand who we are.

 

It becomes part of our ethos, part of our personal brand."

 

Dr. Gideon Burton of Brigham Young University offers an interesting insight into why curation is such a valuable activity for humankind by pointing out that our efforts to gather, collect and order the information chaos surrounding us, is a critical activity to understand ourselves, to learn more about anything, to make sense of the world we live in.

 

Even at the lowest, most amateurish level of social sharing or bookmarking, our best efforts to collect and order information, even when they are imperfect, incomplete or even inaccurate, do have great value.

 

The value is in the opportunity we create for others to discover, to get a better hint or a better understanding, of what we have collected and sorted. And even when collecting is a personal act of self-expression or a reflection of a pet interest, still, there is value, as "people are a very important way by which we can order our understanding of the world".

 

Content curation enhances who we are because it helps us Understand and Navigate the world we live in through someone else eyes and experience.

 

 

Inspiring. Truthful. Great perspective from which to look and appreciate the full value of curation.

 

Highly recommended. 10/10

Multiple Languages, Single Platforms: the World Digital Library

Multiple Languages, Single Platforms: the World Digital Library | Innovation and the knowledge economy | Scoop.it

Multilingual does not always mean multiple accounts or websites. Increasingly, multilingual content is delivered in an integrated way, with two (or more!) languages delivered on the same website, app, or social media platform.

The World Digital Library (WDL) is one example of how multiple languages can be incorporated on single platforms. The WDL is a hub for cultural artifacts that includes books, manuscripts, maps, newspapers, journals, photographs, sound recordings, and films. The WDL website is available in seven languages: Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish. The WDL Twitter account, @WDLorg, posts tweets in those seven languages, as well.

WDL is a project of the Library of Congress and is supported by the United Nations Educational, Cultural and Scientific Organization (UNESCO) and by libraries, archives, museums, educational institutions, and international organizations from around the world.
