Why Facebook isn't the right company to create a Google Reader replacement

Why Facebook isn't the right company to create a Google Reader replacement | Educational Books and Scholarly Articles | Scoop.it
With speculation that Facebook might be launching an RSS reader at its press event next week, it’s important to think about why users loved the Google Reader experience. Hint: it wasn’t because Google Reader was social.

Barlay Industries, Andrew Barlay's curator insight, June 18, 2013 11:22 AM

Facebook has been inundated with infectious clutter and is a hackers delight. Perhaps the old cob webs should be wiped away to satisfie the current support base before trodding off into an even more sofisticated ploy.

 

Andrew Federici's comment, June 18, 2013 3:24 PM
Agree there's a difference. RSS on Facebook feels like a portal-type move that may not catch on or be relevant to the mental model...
Andrea Norwood's comment, June 24, 2013 11:06 AM
I'd like to see it done, I have a fecebook page and it hasn't disappointed me yet. I hear a lot on how facebook happened and about the way that mark zuckerburg wasn't so fair in the deal with the suppose to be owners of facebook, but I say he's doing a good job and I'd like to see more interesting and new things happening for facebook!

15 Lesson Plans For Making Students Better Online Researchers

15 Lesson Plans For Making Students Better Online Researchers | Educational Books and Scholarly Articles | Scoop.it

"Google is usually one of the first places students turn to when tasked with an assignment. Whether it’s for research, real-time results, or just a little digital exploration … it’s important they know how to properly Google. Lucky for teachers (and students, of course), Google has a handy set of lesson plans that are just waiting to be unleashed upon the leaders of tomorrow.

 

"While I understand there’s a LOT more to research than just Googling, it’s important to note that this is where nearly all students start their research. Therefore, it’s a critical skill if they’re going to start down the right paths.

 

"Below are 15 lesson plans courtesy of Google designed to make students better online researchers. They’re organized by difficulty and meant to help students (and everyone) become better online searchers."

Excellent lessons. Must be used.

Deborah Fillman's curator insight, December 15, 8:47 PM

This is a pet peeve of mine--schools are still not teaching kids how to do this properly, with disastrous results. Whether you homeschool or send a child to school, these lessons will help them use the Internet more effectively (and responsibly) for research projects.

Innovating Pedagogy: Learning Design Informed by Analytics

Innovating Pedagogy: Learning Design Informed  by Analytics | Educational Books and Scholarly Articles | Scoop.it
As learning is taken online, there are opportunities to collect data on student activities and analyse these, both to inform the design of new courses and to improve the learning experience. The data can also be linked with test results to show which learning activities produce good results and to identify where learners are struggling.

These kinds of user behaviour data can be supplemented with background information from student admission systems, showing prior education, registration to courses, or number of credits obtained in a year. Easily obtained but lowquality data, such as log-files of test scores and details of which materials students have viewed, can be combined with information gathered directly through surveys of learners’ goals and motivation, to create a rich picture of the patterns and pitfalls of taking an online course.

it is possible some of the good research is not that good. Maybe it fits a larger narrative and therefore is cited in that vein rather than based on "goodness" whatever that means.
