Can’t tweet or won’t tweet? What are the reasons behind low adoption of web 2.0 tools by researchers? | Impact of Social Sciences | Stuffaliknows | Scoop.it

Evidence from the Research Information Network suggests many UK academics are reluctant to adopt web 2.0 tools for their work, worried that such tools are not seen as credible or useful. Cheryl Brown discusses how researchers in developing countries face additional barriers such as poor infrastructure, and concludes that design and an understanding of the barriers are key ways to help increase the likelihood of success.

Paulo Freire - An Incredible Conversation

Paulo Freire's last public interview, given to Literacy.org in 1996.   It is fascinating to hear him speak.  So much has happened with new literacies, even since this interview in 1996.  We have to wonder what he would say today.  Although perhaps he would still be focused on the fundamentals of literacy, which are still elusive to so much of the world's population.

You are welcome, Gabi. I'm researching Freire's work as a way of underpinning the OER movement... if you ever want to bounce some ideas around let me know!

What Americans Keep Ignoring About Finland's School Success

What Americans Keep Ignoring About Finland's School Success | Stuffaliknows | Scoop.it
The Scandinavian country is an education superpower because it values equality more than excellence.

 

Compared with the stereotype of the East Asian model -- long hours of exhaustive cramming and rote memorization -- Finland's success is especially intriguing because Finnish schools assign less homework and engage children in more creative play.
