Lots of useful references in this presentation by Stephen Downes to follow up and read round. Also Downes helpfully makes the distinction between personal and personalised learning which I think are being used interchangeably in some contexts without individuals realising they are different things.

Being a community manager is a lot of work!

This feature article on Erik Martin is very interesting and thorough. 

"The best community managers are the ones who commit to reading and listening in all day long to see what users care about, not just checking in when there is a problem. "

Important points in this article: It's about people and don't be a slave to data.

Musings of a (New) Education Insurgent | I hereby declare myself an education rebel

Musings of a (New) Education Insurgent | I hereby declare myself an education rebel | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it
SHIFT PARADIGM | by Mark E. Weston The system of schooling to which I have dedicated my life seems incapable of educating all students to high levels of learning


Taking those lessons to heart, I hereby declare myself an education rebel who will no longer work to save the educational system for which I’ve long toiled.


Further, I vow to work to create, nurture, and give voice to an educational alternative that employs proven educational practices—real and individualized differentiated instruction, real and serious engagement of parents, ubiquitous access to information for all, and consistent and relevant feedback about performance—that will produce aptitude-defying-levels of learning among all students. I will work for new paradigm schools and technological tools.


I make this declaration knowing full well that being a rebel will be lots of work because lots of vested interests will work just as hard to maintain the dysfunctional status quo.


Join me in this space for regular updates about the education revolution. Your comments, suggestions, feedback and constructive criticism are welcome!

Intelligent narrator reads print news articles in multiple languages | GizMag.com | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it

Researchers at the Multimedia University in Malaysia have developed an app called the Intelligent Narrator to read out news articles in real-time. Supporting multiple languages, the app can automatically identify an online newspaper's language and read out the news in the same language.


"You will hear a Chinese voice, if Chinese text is written on the news website," Dr. Wee Kuok Kwee, a Senior lecturer at the Faculty of Information Science & Technology, Multimedia University, tells Gizmag. "We can modify our app to cater to the common languages of a region."


Currently the app supports Korean, Japanese, Malay, Tamil, English and Chinese. According to Kwee, it's also possible for users to hear news based on their specific interests as the app allows category-based selection.


Integrating a text-to-speech engine and an HTML text extractor, the app is designed to provide quick access to the latest news to listeners with disabilities, the visually-impaired and people who'd prefer to listen to the news while driving or otherwise engaged.

This post by @Martin (Marty) Smith sums up why I curate content. It's about helping, building relationships, and thought-leadership.

"Our advice is leave content creation to the mob. Focus on content curation instead to make more money faster, to build bigger and more engaged tribes and keep your job."

Now, that's what I call a thought-provoking quote! But it strongly resonates with me, because my schedule is becoming insanely busy again, and content creation takes TIME. 

A must-read to understand the benefits of content curation!
