Official Google Blog: Introducing the Google+ project: Real-life sharing, rethought for the web

Among the most basic of human needs is the need to connect with others. With a smile, a laugh, a whisper or a cheer, we connect with others every single day.

Today, the connections between people increasingly happen online. Yet the subtlety and substance of real-world interactions are lost in the rigidness of our online tools.

In this basic, human way, online sharing is awkward. Even broken. And we aim to fix it.

We’d like to bring the nuance and richness of real-life sharing to software. We want to make Google better by including you, your relationships, and your interests. And so begins the Google+ project:

Creation and Curation Are Part of the Same Spectrum

Creation and Curation Are Part of the Same Spectrum | John Dewey | Scoop.it

From the original post on ex.plore.com by Maria Popova: "What remix culture has taught us is that making derivative works can be a form of real originality, not that all derivative works are original.


In a tangential comment on a discussion of meme culture, a reader of Andrew Sullivan’s nails what needs to be said over and over again – creation andcuration”/remix are a spectrum, not a binary dichotomy, and each point of the spectrum has its own sub-spectrum of greatness and mediocrity."

"Because I was fortunate enough to win a contest from Best Buy Canada, I got to go on a $20 000 shopping spree last week to purchase technology for my classroom. I chose to buy iPads. Being 1:1 with some sort of device has long been a dream of mine, a dream I was ecstatic to fulfill!"

Paradigm Shift–Thinking Differently About Technology

Paradigm Shift–Thinking Differently About Technology | John Dewey | Scoop.it

How long has the word paradigm been around? I remember many years ago talking about the concept of paradigm shift (I had to google it to verify that Joel Barker was the author I recall being the expert of the time.) Anyhow, enough of the brief history lesson on my knowledge of paradigms. But I do have a point, lets talk about this concept.

As I work with groups that come and visit our district and as I do private consulting with districts, what I am finding is that iPads change how we think about technology. But not everyone is on the same page, not everyone has the same background knowledge as it relates to iPads and rolling out a 1-1 initiative. So I would like to share a few of the common themes I’m seeing and hearing as I chat with teachers, administrators, and school board members.

Aesthetics of Civil Society

Aesthetics of Civil Society | John Dewey | Scoop.it

The relationship between India’s economic liberalisation and the rise of urban middle-class “civil society” movements has been critically analysed by several commentators, but few attempts have been made to understand what exactly this civil society comprises, not as a universal idea, but as an artefact created and evaluated in a specific situation. Through a fieldwork-based study of a Mumbai clean-up campaign initiated by a daily tabloid newspaper, this article examines the understanding of the terms “citizen” and “civil society” as used by Indian English-speakers.

Using the iPad to Enhance Student Learning | Virtual-Strategy Magazine | John Dewey | Scoop.it

"Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota moves into the vanguard of online and mobile learning by incorporating the iPad into its online graduate programs in Project Management, Organizational Leadership, and Human Resource Management in May. Staff and faculty who have developed the project will present their innovative approach at the Campus Technology Forum, which takes place April 30 through May 2 in Long Beach, CA.

Each student will receive an iPad preloaded with programs and resources and will use it to access the online learning environment, electronic resources, content-creation tools, and student services. But rather than functioning as a static device for receiving information, the iPad is deeply integrated into the curriculum of the programs, incorporating both native applications and specially designed learning activities that will enable and enhance student-to-student, student-to-instructor, and student-to-content interaction..."

Re-envisioning Modern Pedagogy: Educators as Curators

Corinne Weisgerber (an Associate Prof. of Communication at St. Edward's University that we were lucky to interview recently) gave this presentation at SXSWedu on March 6, 2012. It's of course targetting educators - natural-born curators. But a lot of what's in that presentation is generic enough so it's interesting to read.

 

Corinne comes back on 8 steps that she defined as essential for curators and describes how they intereact together to form a complete cycle.

 

It's also interesting to note how good a fit there is betwwen curation and education; something we've felt for quite some time at Scoop.it by seeing a lot of educators using the platform.
