Dis mon député, c’est quoi l’open data ? | The World of Open | Scoop.it

L’Open Data est une course de fond et à OWNI, nous y pensons au quotidien. À ce titre, nous avons décidé d’aller prendre la température des politiques, en effectuant un petit micro-trottoir à l’Assemblée nationale. Résultat : un zéro pointé, à l’exception de Lionel Tardy. Et pour cause : ce parlementaire UMP est spécialiste des questions numériques, “spécialiste intergroupe”, comme a dit en riant Bruno Le Roux (PS).

Inspirations: A Short Film Celebrating the Mathematical Art of M.C. Escher

Inspirations: A Short Film Celebrating the Mathematical Art of M.C. Escher | The World of Open | Scoop.it

This week, Vila returns with a new film called Inspirations. In this case, the inspiration is M.C. Escher (1898-1972), the Dutch artist who explored a wide range of mathematical ideas with his woodcuts, lithographs, and mezzotints. Although Escher had no formal training in mathematics beyond secondary school, many mathematicians counted themselves as admirers of his work.

Online course: Digital Citizens Basics | mfioretti.com

Today, our rights and the overall quality of our life heavily depend on how software is used around us. This is true also for people (including children) who don't care much about computers, or don't even have one. For this reason, starting in April 2011 I will teach online the same things I wrote in the Family Guide to Digital Freedom, but interactively and always using the latest practical examples straight from the Internet.

Trend of the Day: Free Coworking

Coworking is going to evolve into “Free Coworking”. I predict that within the coming year you will see a marked increase in “Free Coworking” offers. What do I mean by “Free Coworking”? ”Free Coworking” means that as a coworking space user you do not pay for the use of the desk, chair etc.

Part two: Heartbreak

Part two: Heartbreak | The World of Open | Scoop.it

For every gambolling tune about falling in love, there must surely be a counterpoint. These are the songs of heartbreak, songs that distil the misery of failed relationships, unrequited loves, disappointment and rejection, and set it to music. These are the songs we seek solace in when we want to know that somebody else has felt that way too. Heartbroken by what we've left out?

European Journal of Open, Distance and E-Learning

Some authors (Oblinger & Oblinger, 2005; Palfrey & Gasser, 2008, Prensky, 2005; Tapscott, 2009), describe the existence of a new generation of people that have spent their childhood surrounded by media and computing, and who have a more intuitive and deeper knowledge of ICT than previous generations. These authors contend that this has affected their experience of learning, as it is believed that they have different thought patterns compared to previous generations (Tapscott, 1998). From this perspective, the vast majority of university students could be considered within this so-called Net Generation as they “were born after the year 1980” (Oblinger & Oblinger 2005 p.12).
