Facebook has always had a policy of requiring users to supply their real name on the site. Enforcement has been lax, but there's still a risk of getting caught. Here's how to fly under the radar if you need to.

What is the link between information literacy (IL) and research skills? | Chat Literacy

What is the link between information literacy (IL) and research skills? | Chat Literacy | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

Welcome to Day 2: we have already enjoyed a very active discussion (Topic 1) about conceptions of Information Literacy and now move to exploring the role of information literacy in developing the skills of the young researcher or an effective employee, including:

 

--how to make the critical link between IL and building research capacity

 

--sharing approaches and strategies for mitigating challenges

 

--raising awareness and communicating the value of IL in organisations

 

What role does IL play in developing the skills of the young researcher or an effective employee? We need to discuss how to make the critical link between IL and building research capacity; this involves sharing approaches and strategies for mitigating challenges, by raising awareness and communicating the value of IL in your organisations.

 

There can be little doubt that the link between the “information use” space and the “professional” space that forms our community of practice has changed considerably over the course of the last thirty years.

 

One principal factor of change, which I call “Structural”, is that the classical model of learning how to do research is to become apprenticed to those who are already thoroughly familiar with the field of study, active users of research methods and discerning critics of ideas. This model has been largely displaced because the massification of higher education, in particular, and the consequent inability of teachers, tutors, supervisors, librarians and information specialists to provide in-depth supervision, makes the original model uneconomic.

America is rapidly aging in a country built for the young

America is rapidly aging in a country built for the young | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

"Although we seldom think about them this way, most American communities as they exist today were built for the spry and mobile. We've constructed millions of multi-story, single-family homes where the master bedroom is on the second floor, where the lawn outside requires weekly upkeep, where the mailbox is a stroll away. We've designed neighborhoods where everyday errands require a driver's license. We've planned whole cities where, if you don't have a car, it's not particularly easy to walk anywhere — especially not if you move gingerly.

This reality has been a fine one for a younger country. Those multi-story, single-family homes with broad lawns were great for Baby Boomers when they had young families. And car-dependent suburbs have been fine for residents with the means and mobility to drive everywhere. But as the Baby Boomers whose preferences drove a lot of these trends continue to age, it's becoming increasingly clear that the housing and communities we've built won't work very well for the old."

Wilmine Merlain's curator insight, September 22, 2014 12:47 PM

This reality is detrimental to the future of our society because it focuses on the now rather than looking into long terms on how these changes will impact our world in the long run. Looking at the way our society is progressing, these changes are relevant in major metropolitan cities, where the job market is attractive to the young rather than those with over 30 years of experience. In our society, not many see retirement being in the center of the city. Creating a society that accommodates both the young and the old, along with the married and unmarried is pivotal to the progression of  our ever changing world. 

Alexandra Piggott's curator insight, October 18, 2014 6:48 PM

This is also an issue in Australia where the overwhelming majority of people live in single story dwellings and are very car reliant.

Joshua Mason's curator insight, January 28, 8:59 PM

I can definitely see this as a real problem. Both my Uncle and my Great Uncle moved their condos from ones that had numerous steps to climb to the second floor to more elder-friendly options. My Great Uncle even went a step further to move him and his wife to a senior living community, where there food, entertainment, etc. is all provided within an enclosed neighbourhood with other people of their age group. More of these communities that act like oversized retirement homes could be the answer. They give the illusion of suburban living, something the baby boomers liked, while providing the accessibility they need.
