If you have ever taken or considered taking an online course, you are well aware of some of the challenges and criticisms that online courses face. Some consider the fact that there is no physical, literal classroom a disadvantage. Others consider it an advantage. When taking an online course, it is true that there are no students in the desks next to you, and that there may be hundreds or even more than a thousand students participating in the same class. The lack of a physical classroom, however, does not have to be a disadvantage. One advantage of online courses …

A systematic identification and analysis of scientists on Twitter

A systematic identification and analysis of scientists on Twitter | New Learning - Ny læring | Scoop.it
Metrics derived from Twitter and other social media—often referred to as altmetrics—are increasingly used to estimate the broader social impacts of scholarship. Such efforts, however, may produce highly misleading results, as the entities that participate in conversations about science on these platforms are largely unknown. For instance, if altmetric activities are generated mainly by scientists, does it really capture broader social impacts of science? Here we present a systematic approach to identifying and analyzing scientists on Twitter. Our method can identify scientists across many disciplines, without relying on external bibliographic data, and be easily adapted to identify other stakeholder groups in science. We investigate the demographics, sharing behaviors, and interconnectivity of the identified scientists. We find that Twitter has been employed by scholars across the disciplinary spectrum, with an over-representation of social and computer and information scientists; under-representation of mathematical, physical, and life scientists; and a better representation of women compared to scholarly publishing. Analysis of the sharing of URLs reveals a distinct imprint of scholarly sites, yet only a small fraction of shared URLs are science-related. We find an assortative mixing with respect to disciplines in the networks between scientists, suggesting the maintenance of disciplinary walls in social media. Our work contributes to the literature both methodologically and conceptually—we provide new methods for disambiguating and identifying particular actors on social media and describing the behaviors of scientists, thus providing foundational information for the construction and use of indicators on the basis of social media metrics.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, April 10, 1:47 PM
"How fake Dewey quotes harm our capacity to think critically about education." That is important. We use John Dewey and others i.e. Paulo Freire to justify neo-liberal agendas they did not support. In short, we are robbing students of tomorrow when we deny that teachers play an essential role in student learning. They are not responsible for the learning, but they play an essential role in providing the conditions and environment where learning can happen when students assume responsiblity.

I used Dewey in my dissertation. He was about students learning in the moment and teachers teaching. Too often, we forget he focused on the role of teachers in the learning of students.
