The ART Of Collaboration (Collaborative Behaviours)

The ART Of Collaboration (Collaborative Behaviours) | The Slothful Cybrarian | Scoop.it
If people are given the right tools and the right environment, will they spontaneously collaborate and share knowledge? Why do some people find it difficult to share and collaborate? Would incentives and rewards make a difference?

 

Collaboration in the workplace is now high on the priority list of many organisations seeking to leverage social technologies to free-up knowledge and provide opportunities for co-creation, co-production and innovation.

 

Gust MEES: I was one of the TOP10 Knol authors (Google Knol discontinued its service as on May 1, 2012) and I was involved in a lot of collaborative articles with multicultural authors and it was a very positive experience... I hope one day having the same opportunity back again on WordPress now...

 

One of our "old knols" (created on  November 02, 2010 [we were pioneers]) is being migrated to WordPress here if you would like to check it:

Everday inquiry and inquiry learning | inquiry learning & information ... | The Slothful Cybrarian | Scoop.it
Indeed, a teacher-librarian I interviewed recently called it 'an approach to life' (Lupton manuscript). Thus, inquiry learning as a pedagogy and curriculum design involves:

1) questioning frameworks

2) information literacy / information seeking processes

3) an action research cycle

Create Interactive Stories With New Four Dimensional Storytelling Tool: Meograph

Create Interactive Stories With New Four Dimensional Storytelling Tool: Meograph | The Slothful Cybrarian | Scoop.it

From official website:

"Meograph helps easily create, watch, and share interactive stories. Our first product combines maps, timeline, links, and multimedia to tell stories in context of where and when.

 

Viewers get a new form of media that they can watch in two minutes or explore for an hour. Sharing is easy: the two most viral types of media are videos and infographics ... Meograph is both."

 

 

From review by Mashable:

"Founder Misha Leybovich invisions Meograph to be a great product for journalists, educators and people looking to share travel stories.

 

The tool uses Google Earth and a timeline interface to show where and when events in a story unfolded.

 

You can now create your own 4D story, by adding events, links, photos and video. You can then embed your Meograph creation on any site or social network.

 

As of launch, you can only create Meograph stories using Google Chrome, though you can view a finished product in any browser..."

Flip This Library: School Libraries Need a Revolution

Flip This Library: School Libraries Need a Revolution | The Slothful Cybrarian | Scoop.it

What has to happen for school libraries to become relevant? If we want to connect with the latest generation of learners and teachers, we have to totally redesign the library from the vantage point of our users—our thinking has to do a 180-degree flip. In short, it’s time for school libraries to become a lot less like Microsoft and a lot more like Google. With this notion in mind, David Loertscher, collaborated with two colleagues, Carol Koechlin and Sandi Zwaan, Canadian educational consultants, to develop an idea called the school library learning commons.

A Curated and Searchable Collection of the Best Free UI Design Elements: UICloud

A Curated and Searchable Collection of the Best Free UI Design Elements: UICloud | The Slothful Cybrarian | Scoop.it

Robin Good: UICloud is a curated collection of some of the best user interface elements, available under a Creative Commons license. The collection which includes already over 20,000 designs provides an easy-to-use search engine as well as a set of browsable categories to easily find specific UI designs. 

 

Another great example of how useful it can be to have someone that picks, collects and organizes sets of valuable items otherwise scattered all over the web.

 

N.B.: Anyone can submit design elements to UICloud, but each new submission is reviewed, evaluated and, if accepted, appropriately categorized, by human reviewers. See: http://ui-cloud.com/submit/

 

Curation at work.

Well-known K-12 tech expert, Kathy Schrock, presents a helpful list, mostly aimed at K-12 folks, but the list offers a model for thinking about iPad use in the classroom.

Karen Williams's curator insight, March 19, 2013 2:04 AM
