Shareable: Program or be Programmed | The e-learning Professional | Scoop.it

An excerpt from Douglas Rushkoff's latest book, Program or be Programmed: Ten Commands for the Digital Age.

 

When human beings acquired language, we learned not just how to listen but how to speak. When we gained literacy, we learned not just how to read but how to write. And as we move into an increasingly digital reality, we must learn not just how to use programs but how to make them.

Pedagogy Badges | JISC Elevator

Pedagogy Badges | JISC Elevator | The e-learning Professional | Scoop.it

This project is intended to kickstart a discussion, and disrupt practice in how we teach and learn. If successful it will encourage and enable practitioners within a variety of institutions to:

+ Become more aware of their current e-learning and blended practice
+ Become more aware of their desired practice, and how this differs from the above
+ Become more aware of the pedagogical affordances of technology for teaching and learning
+ Have better discussions about how we teach
+ Change the way we teach

Harnessing technology for change in education is only worthwhile if it is accompanied by discussions of pedagogy. It we don't change how we teach then technology is just sustaining existing practice. With this project we want to provide a framework that will enable technology to be used to disrupt practice.

The 21st Century Curator

The 21st Century Curator | The e-learning Professional | Scoop.it

Post by Sahana (http://www.blogger.com/profile/09533308240409984953)

 

"How do the skills of a curator apply in an organizational context? More than ever before, as we know. In globally distributed and networked organizations engaged in doing complex work, where exception handling is likely to be the norm, it is crucial for information flow to be transparent and to have folks who can spot the patterns, connect the dots and provide that key insight which keep an organization on the cutting edge. They may or may not be officially conferred the title of curators. But the need is irrefutable. Probably the biggest challenge facing organizations today is not the lack of data creation, but the lack of someone who can connect all the floating dots—inside and outside the organization—that lead to meaningful decisions. While some aspects can be automated—using analytics—it still requires a human curator to recognize patterns and present the output.

Who are likely to be playing the role of key curators in an organization? Most likely to be the community managers! With organizations going the social business route and investing in a social platform, community managers will soon become an essential role. And community managers are the best placed to play the role of curators as well. One insight I gleaned from this post by Bertrand Duperrin: Are curators the missing thing in enterprise 2.0 approaches? Curators are focused on information flows without thinking they’re leading or managing any community. From which I draw the inference that curators need not be community managers, but community managers should ideally have curation skills or work closely with curators to build a successful community.

As Clay Shirky said here: Curation comes up when search stops working…[and] when people realize that it isn't just about information seeking, it's also about synchronizing a community."

Learning with 'e's: Content is a tyrant...

Learning with 'e's: Content is a tyrant... | The e-learning Professional | Scoop.it

Never before has gaining access to information been so easy. The imminent arrival of widespread 4G broadband and LTE (Long Term Evolution) will usher in wider availability to information and push even more data to our mobile devices over the same amount of radio spectrum. At least that is the plan. Better coverage and faster download/upload speeds would ensure that just about everyone who is connected would have even greater access to online content and services anytime, anywhere. But in adopting these communication advances, are we also opening the door for a deluge of content? Are we not already swamped by a tsunami of content?

"I always believe that the best sites and web tools are the simplest, and this is certainly the case with Phonetizer. It's a really easy to use tool that takes and text and adds the phonetic spelling below it."

Looks to a be great tool in transcribing text to IPA. Going into my top ELT bookmarks/tools.

Now I'm the king of the swingers
Oh, the jungle VIP

And that's what's botherin' me
I wanna be a man, mancub yeah
And stroll right into town
I wanna be just like the other men
I'm tired of monkeyin' around!
