WordSift - Visualize Text

Stanford University

Chanelle Savich's insight:
Copy and paste a paragraph into the WordSift box.WordSift identifies keywords, supplies images, word webs, and quotations from other sources using the same word. Really a cool and useful tool for learning new vocabulary when you are trying to describe the word to students for the first time or when they are trying to restate the meaning in their own words, discover synonyms, or find images.

The future of data, technology and the Internet

Everybody is talking about 'data is the new oil' aka big-data. SoLoMo (social local mobile) is the battle cry of the day. Human-machine interfaces are rapidly evolving and may quickly become commonplace (think Google Glasses, MSFT Kinect), artificial intelligence is the geek-phrase-of-the-day, and Kurzweil says the singularity is near/here. So how will our world really change in the next 5 years, i.e. the way we communicate, get information, create, buy and sell, travel, live and learn? What are the biggest threats and the hottest opportunities - not just in financial terms, but also in societal and human terms? Futurist Gerd Leonhard will share his foresights and explore the key 'networked society' scenarios"
Via Szabolcs Kósa, Dr. Stefan Gruenwald
Chanelle Savich's insight:

Gerd is easy to listen to, and he talks about data as a resource that has to be refined in order to be useful (just like you can't take crude oil out of the ground and put it in your car).

 

He talks about inferred data that Google gets about you through your searches--you're looking for info on a disease or certain symptoms? Bet you've got it, even if you haven't told anyone yet. Google knows.  

 

Gerd says that we should create an ecosystem so that data pays for itself--if you take out more than you put in, the ecosystem eventually fails. Create an ecosystem around data that takes care of itself and keeps itself replenished. Big oil never takes care of fixing the atmosphere; it keeps sucking the money out of oil without taking care of the world, and so the movement is away from oil use. 

 

There needs to be an information economy. Think globally.

Thanks for your insight into that. Reality forces us to self-correct ... hopefully in time....
Sworoba OyetKep's curator insight, March 18, 2013 12:10 AM

In this video futurist shares his thoughts on the technologies that will impact humanity the most within the next five years. His presentation discusses the future of data, communication, artifical intelligence and the most influential which is the internet. Its worth watching the video in order to be aware of the rapid technological changes happening around the world. Mr.Leonhard presents his foresights clearly and in doing so  successfully engages the audience.

New reading standards squeeze out fun, critics sayColumbus DispatchNonfiction reading can excite some students, said Nell Duke, who teaches language, literacy and culture at the University of Michigan.

Chanelle Savich's insight:

Ahh . . . but convincing Science teachers to take on reading tasks is less than joyful at times. And getting LA teachers to take on Info Texts which are about cross-curricular topics and therefore useful for enrichment on science targets is also difficult. It's easier for an LA teacher to engage students in info text reading if the article is about body piercing than if the article is about the density of liquids. This is where the creative Library Media Specialist comes in: how to help both groups and make sure the targets are met without boring students or overworking teachers?
