What Does Big Data Look Like?

What Does Big Data Look Like? | Learning and Teaching in the 21d Century | Scoop.it

A simple Google image search on “big data” reveals numerous instances of three dimensional one’s and zero’s, a few explanatory infographics, and even the interface from The Matrix. So what does “big data” look like, within human comprehension?

From the beginning of recorded time until 2003, humans had created 5 exabytes (5 billion gigabytes) of data. In 2011, the same amount was created every two days. It’s true that we’ve made leaps and bounds with showing earlier generations of data. However, when it comes to today’s big data, how it looks can help convey information but it needs to be more than just beautiful and superficial. It has to work, show multiple dimensions, and be useful.

New software and technologies have enabled us to gain higher level access to understanding these enormous sets of data. However, the only way we’re going to truly gather and juice all the information big data is worth is to apply a level of relatively unprecedented data visualization. How do we get to actionable analysis, deeper insight, and visually comprehensive representations of the information? The answer: we need to make data more human.

What Is The New Role Of A School Library In The Digital Age?

What Is The New Role Of A School Library In The Digital Age? | Learning and Teaching in the 21d Century | Scoop.it
Paper books are still very ubiquitous and a very important learning tool. The same is true for paper magazines. Yet digital books and digital magazines are getting ever so popular and are here to stay. What will the function of a school library and a school librarian be in this ongoing digitalization of learning resources?
Ron Leunissen's insight:

Let students becomes more than just consumers. Let them become producers/creators of new artifacts of new collections of knowledge of new insights.

Libraries could play an important facilitating role in this.

Ron Leunissen's insight:
Is the buzz word "flipped classroom" really something new ? It's not in my opinion because at the basis it comes down to learner centered teaching. Ask yourself "What should the student DO to reach the learning goal?", and you'll focus on the student's activity instead of on the teacher's activity.

Ron Leunissen's insight:

Computers can help learners to learn without a physical teacher. In this old Indian story a learner learned with a self made clay statue as a teacher. 

You could view this as an ancient example of independent learning.

Ron Leunissen's curator insight, January 22, 2014 4:50 AM

#rhizo14   This old Indian story is a wonderful example of complete independent learning from an external point of view. From the learner's point of view though (in this story) there is a dependency on a teacher (though it's only a clay statue).
