Badges - MozillaWiki | It's All Social | Scoop.it

"Not just in the classroom. But it's often difficult to get recognition for the skills you acquire online or outside of traditional school. Mozilla's Open Badges projectis working to solve that problem, making it easy for anyone to issue, earn and display badges across the web. The result: badges can help today's learners display 21st century skills, unlock career and educational opportunities, and level up in their life and work."

How to Harvest Collective Wisdom on Complex Problems: An Introduction to the MIT Deliberatorium.

http://cci.mit.edu/klein/papers/deliberatorium-intro.pdf

 

The Deliberatorium is a technology designed to help large numbers of people, distributed in space and time, combine their insights to find well-founded solutions for such complex multi-stakeholder multi-disciplinary ("wicked") problems as sustainability, climate change policy, complex product design, and so on.

See this video for a quick tour of the concepts underlying the Deliberatorium, and see this paper for a review of the project's contributions to date.

Follow this link to access the system itself, which allows many authors to collaboratively create deliberation maps.

A read-only map viewer, which can be embedded in any web site, is also available:

Is Scoop.it! the right balance?

Is Scoop.it! the right balance? | It's All Social | Scoop.it
So I was just writing about Scoop here seems to repesent and nice balance between blogging and Tweeting and I stil feel that way but I did find out a lil UI trick....don't click on the "more" button when writing a post cuz the post will be gone. Guess that is a different between my blog and this...my blog would remind me to save the post before leaving page...I still feel though that this lets me go past 140 characters when I want but share Twitter feed when relevant and does it all in a visually appealing way (Scoop needs a spell check though)....

This Man Thinks the Internet Needs CliffsNotes - Forbes

This Man Thinks the Internet Needs CliffsNotes - Forbes | It's All Social | Scoop.it

People will come across an article, realize either they don’t have time to read it (or aren’t sure if they want to), plug that link into gis.to, and voila, you’ve got 5 to 10 summaries that other people who have read that article have written. That will be the majority of users on the network. A smaller portion will be folks who simply read a lot and want to curate great long-form content for others. Just like some people are passionate about being editors on Wikipedia and manage knowledge of things, people, and events, gis.to authors will be managers of content.

"Categorization of Affordances" by Jiajie Zhang

"Categorization of Affordances" by Jiajie Zhang | It's All Social | Scoop.it
"In this Chapter, I study affordances under the framework of distributed representations. First, I summarize Gibson's orginal definition of affordance. Second, I extend Gibson's affordance to domains that involve internal representations. Third, I develop a taxonomy of affordances. And finally, I explore the roles of distributed representations in bridging the conventional approach that emphasizes internal representations and the ecological approach that emphasizes the information in the environment."
