Digital Media & Learning Conference 2012: Learning Innovations in a Connected World | DMLcentral | Innovation and the knowledge economy | Scoop.it

* How do we design, build and fund infrastructures around new connections across and configurations of learning?

Web 3.0+ and Collective Intelligence

Web 3.0+ and Collective Intelligence | Innovation and the knowledge economy | Scoop.it

Think about collective intelligence as billions of human brains working using future super computers as a platform. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) professor Srini Devadas described “collective intelligence” as consisting of two pillars: cloud computing and crowd computing. Cloud computing is using the Internet as a platform and making access to information available to everyone. Crowd computing, according to him, involves the analysis of information into “collective intelligence” far beyond what we have today."

Bibliotheek.nl wil groter budget voor digitale content | Innovation and the knowledge economy | Scoop.it

De Stichting Bibliotheek.nl wil een groter budget voor digitale content.  De stichting gelooft namelijk dat het gebruik van ebooks binnen twee á drie jaar zal versnellen. “Dit patroon is zichtbaar in de VS en ook bij andere markten, zoals de muziekmarkt. Over vijf jaar zal vermoedelijk driekwart van het boekaanbod ook een e-bookvariant hebben.”

The Googlization of Everything | Innovation and the knowledge economy | Scoop.it

Siva Vaidhyanathan has written a stimulating and controversial book about Google. Its subtitle is And Why We Should Worry - and what I didn't worry about made me think and argue. What is going on is fascinating, and as he makes clear, what could be going on if these tools and resources get into the metaphorical wrong hands is alarming.
