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.

Libraries Support Data-Sharing Across the Research Lifecycle

Libraries Support Data-Sharing Across the Research Lifecycle | Innovation and the knowledge economy | Scoop.it
As more and more researchers are committed to sharing their data, libraries are seizing the opportunity to demonstrate their value across the research lifecycle and support open culture. Mandates from funding agencies have made data management and sharing a high priority for researchers; new strategies for reuse and visualization are shining a spotlight on the importance of discoverability. Libraries have an important role to play in research data management and sharing; they are taking the opportunity to remind their partners across campus that managing research data, like most efforts in scholarly communication, is a team sport.

How NGOs can work with big Internet firms to overcome the digital divide | Devex

How NGOs can work with big Internet firms to overcome the digital divide | Devex | Innovation and the knowledge economy | Scoop.it

Global tech players such as Google, Facebook and Microsoft are touting a plethora of options to break down the digital divide, from a new wave of higher-throughput satellites to Internet balloons and drones.

An array of initiatives in individual countries means there is some uncertainty among the global development community on how the mix of technologies will ultimately look in developing regions.

How this all pans out is of crucial importance for nongovernmental organizations and the donors that support them — and there are a number of ways they can give themselves a voice and help drive a desirable outcome.

Devex spoke to experts in the sector to get the inside track and glean advice on how NGOs can better work and engage with big Internet firms.

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.

Free science journal library gains notoriety, lands injunctions

Free science journal library gains notoriety, lands injunctions | Innovation and the knowledge economy | Scoop.it

The market for publishing research papers in specialist journals has long resisted the economics of the internet age by building paywalls around their archives. When that approach proved successful, the publishers responded by raising prices – to the extent that top universities including Harvard have decided that they could no longer afford to pay the access fees.

Worse, some journals are charging authors to have their papers published in the journals due to the perceived importance for a researcher's career to having their work independently recognized. In one case, Elsevier charges authors more than $2,000 to make their paper accessible to the public.

Elsevier in particular has been targeted, with over 15,500 scientists boycotting the company's journals over its "exorbitantly high prices for subscriptions" and refusing to publish or do editorial work for the company until "they radically change how they operate."

And in October, all six editors and 31 members of the editorial board for Elsevier linguistics journalLingua quit over the high fees the company was charging for access.

How Misinformation Spreads On The Internet | Innovation and the knowledge economy | Scoop.it
A team of researchers have conducted a five-year-long study on a wide range of Facebook users in a quest to find out how misinformation blossoms online. In their paper, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, they note that it may be due to the nature of so-called “echo chambers,” spaces that allow people to amplify their own belief systems without obstruction.
