Sugata Mitra's new experiments in self-teaching

"A fascinating and though- provoking video ( suggested by one of our DNLE participants, Subramanyam B) on how does education really happens. Highly recomended!

http://www.ted.com Indian education scientist Sugata Mitra tackles one of the greatest problems of education."

 

I think we're just beginning to apprecaite the significance of Mitra's work in so-called Western education.

IFTTT + Evernote = Automated Research - edSocialMedia

IFTTT + Evernote = Automated Research - edSocialMedia | pedagogy trumps tech every time | Scoop.it

"IFTTT can be combined with Evernote to make a powerful collaborative research tool, because it allows you to combine the collaboration and cloud-access of Evernote with the easy access to information offered by RSS feeds.  Here’s an example:

 

My public forum debate team is researching the Middle East for debates in November.  The Council on Foreign Relations runs a blog called “Middle East Matters,” which you can subscribe to via RSS.  So first I created an Evernote folder call “Middle East Matters,” then shared it with all the members of the team.  Then I created a recipe so that every time a new item is pushed out by the “Middle East Matters” RSS feed, IFTTT creates a new note in Evernote out of that item.  Voilà!  I have now effortlessly shared the latest updates from the Middle East with my PF team."

IFTTT ---> Evernote can be a powerful addition to the toolset for a group who research or track topics together (as is Diigo groups). With my students, we experiment with a lot of tools, then collaborative teams can decide on their own whether to use wikis or Google Docs, Twitter hashtags, Scoop.it, G+ Hangouts, on their project.

PageRank - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

PageRank is a link analysis algorithm, named after Larry Page[1] and used by the Google web search engine, that assigns a numerical weighting to each element of a hyperlinked set of documents, such as the World Wide Web, with the purpose of "measuring" its relative importance within the set. The algorithm may be applied to any collection of entities with reciprocal quotations and references. The numerical weight that it assigns to any given element E is referred to as the PageRank of E and denoted by PR(E).

The name "PageRank" is a trademark of Google, and the PageRank process has been patented (U.S. Patent 6,285,999). However, the patent is assigned to Stanford University and not to Google. Google has exclusive license rights on the patent from Stanford University. The university received 1.8 million shares of Google in exchange for use of the patent; the shares were sold in 2005 for $336 million.[2][3]

The value of incoming links is colloquially referred to as "Google juice", "link juice" or "Pagerank juice".[citation needed]

Una inteligencia colectiva. Un algoritmo que proporciona a la vez un bien público y riqueza privada.

Robin Good's comment, March 30, 2013 6:01 PM
Until it realized that websites were happily selling and exchanging links not as a way to honestly rank and vote for each other's quality, but only to artificously increase their search engine visibility.

Today PageRank still exists, but it offers little insight and help to web publishers wanting to improve their online reach.
Howard Rheingold's comment, March 31, 2013 4:08 PM
Robin raises a good point about the classic arms race between Google, SEO, and spam.

Apple wants to give Siri a distinct personality and AI to make interacting with her more natural, and it is capitalizing on our tendency to anthropomorphize things to remake its digital assistant.
Brad Ovenell-Carter's insight:

Mostly I find that schools, even ones with (or planning for) robust technology programs, take a narrow view of the way we interact or could interact with our technology. I suspect that is a reflection of the deep structure of schools, which is set up to control behaviour & isolate the individual. Outside of schools, we are more open-minded. There is no way current classroom design can accommodate students and teachers all talking to their devices.

Brad Ovenell-Carter's insight:

Excellent thinking from may friend David. He makes the point that we too often (wrongly) assume our students are uniform creatures, that they all should behave more or less the same way given the same stimuli,especially within a given class. We forget or overlook the idea of cognitive overload (coming from work in other subjects or from outside school altogether.) Or, I might add, that students might deliberately choose not to perform at their best--often for good reasons.

Irving Wladawsky-Berger: Creating More Intelligent Organizations

Irving Wladawsky-Berger: Creating More Intelligent Organizations | pedagogy trumps tech every time | Scoop.it

In the online conversation, Professor Malone addresses a very important question that comes up when first considering a brand new concept like collective intelligence.

“Why are we doing all this work?” 

“There are at least three answers. The first is, as scientists, we want to understand how the world works, and in particular, how the world of groups of people and computers work together. How human societies and human networks work. Second, we want to help businesses, governments and other kinds of organizations know how to work better themselves. How can we create more intelligent organizations, more intelligent businesses, more intelligent governments, more intelligent societies?”

“Third, in a way, we are trying to understand how our whole world and society is evolving in a way that I think is making us more collectively intelligent. You could say that the Internet is one way of greatly accelerating the connections among different people and computers on our planet. As all the people and computers on our planet get more and more closely connected, it's becoming increasingly useful to think of all the people and computers on the planet as a kind of global brain.” 

“Our future as a species may depend on our ability to use our global collective intelligence to make choices that are not just smart, but also wise.”
