President Obama Launches Review of Big Data and Privacy | Multichannel.com

President Obama Launches Review of Big Data and Privacy | Multichannel.com | Research skills for students | Scoop.it

President Barack Obama said Friday that he is charging adviser John Podesta with leading a "comprehensive review of big data and privacy," which will enlist Eric Schmidt executive chairman of Google and the other members of the President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology
 
Obama said that group would "reach out to privacy experts, technologists and business leaders, and look at how the challenges inherent in big data are being confronted by both the public and private sectors; whether we can forge international norms on how to manage this data; and how we can continue to promote the free flow of information in ways that are consistent with both privacy and security."
 
That came in a speech at the Justice Department on a number of changes to government data information collection that he said would end the bulk data collection program as it is currently formulated, but not end it. Those changes include more Congressional oversight; collecting less information--two degrees rather than three removed from a terrorist, for example; and adding an independent advocate on the FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) court, which reviews government requests to collect data.
 
The President acknowledged that the speed of technological change raises issues about conflating the ability to do something with its advisability, a question increasingly raised by the speed and power of the Internet.
 
"The power of new technologies means that there are fewer and fewer technical constraints on what we can do. That places a special obligation on us to ask tough questions about what we should do," he said. "[T]he combination of increased digital information and powerful supercomputers offers intelligence agencies the possibility of sifting through massive amounts of bulk data to identify patterns or pursue leads that may thwart impending threats. But the government collection and storage of such bulk data also creates a potential for abuse."
 
The President said bulk data collection would continue, but that the government would not be the one holding it. It was unclear what entitiies would be doing that. He said that there were problems with putting the onus on telecom companies or a third party exclusively to be the repository, so the details had yet to be worked out.
 
The President's comparison of marketing data collection with government surveillance did not sit well with the Digital Marketing Association (DMA), which indicated it was not pleased that the President in the speech had "conflated" marketing data with government surveillance.

Concept Mapping/Graphic Organizers

Concept Mapping/Graphic Organizers | Research skills for students | Scoop.it

"Reading Rockets shares that "A concept map is a visual organizer that can enrich students' understanding of a new concept. Using a graphic organizer, students think about the concept in several ways. Most concept map organizers engage students in answering questions such as, "What is it? What is it like? What are some examples?" Concept maps deepen understanding and comprehension."Cast reports: "There is solid evidence for the effectiveness of graphic organizers in facilitating learning." A summary of this finding is that, "When looking across 23 different studies they found a consistent effect on comprehension."

I would have used "Gathering" instead of Google for the letter G. As much as I do not teach students to exclude Google as a search tool, I insist they use other databases (Nettrekker, Discovery Ed, & other encyclopedias) first.
