Comprendre les MOOCs selon Sir John Daniel

Comprendre les MOOCs selon Sir John Daniel | Web 2.0 et société | Scoop.it

Kézako, les MOOCs ? Première approche, et toute de suite en profondeur :-). Retenez que c'est un des scénarios pour l'innovation dans l'enseignement... A lire. Extrait.

***

"Sir John Daniel a proposé récemment un article où il fait une revue des différents éléments caractéristiques des MOOCs. La démarche est intéressante car elle fait le pont entre les nombreux articles de blogs ou de journaux qui ont parlé des MOOCs et une rédaction plus académique sur le phénomène. Comme le relève cet article de blog, son plan est assez complet et le style plutôt engagé pour un article qui se veut scientifique. Il traite principalement des xMOOCs, considérant que c’est devenu le phénomène principal dans les MOOCs."

Les nouvelles technos ne détruisent pas le cerveau, elles s’y adaptent ! « InternetActu.net

InternetActu.net est un site d'actualité consacré aux enjeux de l'internet, aux usages innovants qu'il permet et aux recherches qui en découlent.
BeerBergman's insight:

Quel bonheur, cet article ! Juste une citation :

 

"Pour Sebastian Dieguez, ce qu’il faut retenir de ces démonstrations, c’est que nous devons laisser la nature nous inspirer. Qu’il faut puiser dans nos compétences cognitives spécifiques et exploiter les failles de notre cerveau. Notre créativité ne repose pas sur le libre arbitre ou l’aléatoire, mais sur les biais, préjugés et habitudes de notre cerveau. Ce sont elles qu’il faut exploiter !

Un discours très relativiste, qui remet en perspective bien des craintes que génèrent les nouvelles technologies et qui permet encore au neuroscientifique de pointer du doigt que la vitesse, l’accélération, l’infobésité dont nous sommes censés être les victimes ne se construisent pas contre nous, mais s’adaptent à nos capacités. “Si quelque chose est trop rapide pour nous, nous ne l’adopterons pas. Nous ne sommes pas submergés, nous savons très bien ignorer ce qui ne nous intéresse pas.”"

"L'économie du partage est aussi porteuse d'un message plus général pour les entreprises. Comme l’a décrit Joseph Schumpeter, l’innovation est un mouvement de destruction créatrice. L’économie collaborative n’échappe pas à la règle : elle offre une formidable source d’opportunités pour reconfigurer les relations entre les membres d’un écosystème, construire de nouvelles solutions et entrer dans de nouveaux marchés avec peu d’investissement. Mais ces solutions sont aussi porteuses de destruction pour les organisations qui se sont construites sur des modèles moins ouverts."

Want a smarter city? Then it's time to indulge in time travel | Web 2.0 et société | Scoop.it
A new planning tool lets people vote on and see, via a virtual simulation, how planning proposals will affect their city. By Jay McGregor
BeerBergman's insight:

Smart cities, the concept of many planning architects and politiciens. How do we imagine the future of the cities, how will we live, act, react in highly populated environments with enormous constraints in all aspects of life in the city (space, time, actors, beliefs, political programs, ...).

Great article, emphasizing the need of the introduction of aspects of direct democracy in the technological process in order to picture a more accurate simulation.

Excerpt.

***

“Smart cities are great, but they’re generally aimed at grabbing data,” says Sengupta. Indeed, the very idea of a smart city is a linear one. What Sengupta is proposing is far more multi-dimensional.

“We take the smart city concept and improve on it, we call this a ‘stage 4 system’,” he explains. “We take all of that smart city data, throw in historical, sociological, geographical, cultural, ecological, industrial and academic data, alongside ground data and you have something very interesting. If, on top of that, you include public participation, ie the thoughts and ideas of citizens, you can build a live and kicking virtual replica city. The more data we have, the more accurate the simulation is and the more future proofed it is”.

I fully understand the authors point of view, all but one : Zuckerberg never said you had to publish everything visible to everybody. Facebook's structure allows you to swift from one context to another, displaying different personal and corporate information to different sets of people. Basically it comes down to one person, different contexts, differents information flows. Correct me if I am wrong!

Excerpt.

"There are many different definitions of identity, not all of which make sense. I prefer the view that an identity is a set of assertions about yourself that you may lay claim to. So in a sense everyone only has one identity and has only ever had one ‘identity’. But in practice we expose different sets of claims depending on the circumstances.

Another Facebook Exec Talks About Privacy; Another Set of Gross Misunderstandings | MichaelZimmer.org | Web 2.0 et société | Scoop.it
BeerBergman's insight:

Since I am in the middle of an amount of articles about Facebook and privacy, let's include this one to the collection :-).

***

The ever again strking aspect of this type of debate seems to me that Facebook is claimed by users (and critics) to make it the service they would like it to be. Don't get me wrong: I do fully subscribe to the fact that there are critics to the model, and am glad the debates don't slow down because I think it is important for deep thinking about technology and human interaction. But somehow it seems important to recall from time to time that we are talking here about a company, not a public service, with a vision, that we may or may not share. 

***

Another aspect that strikes me is that the critics are mainly "auto-centered": concerned with what other will or may not see of them. Very few stress the fact that human (inter-)action serves (different) purposes and that we do need the other(s) to react to us. Disclosure on whatever scale is important with regards to the purposes of the action. The stress on"disclosure control" may obscure the expected purposes that everyone has. 

Excerpt.

***

"This is perhaps the most striking example of Facebook’s utter failure to understand how privacy works. I’ll grant that it is easier to find people if this information is public. And I’ll grant that many people will have a “less satisfying experience” if they don’t post photos or make connections. But, again, people used to have that choice. They could choose what to post to their profile and who can access it — they had control.

Now, it is all public. And if you have a problem with that, Facebook’s only response is essentially “don’t share it”.

To Facebook, privacy and control of information is a binary: either you share it with everyone, or you don’t share it at all. There’s no longer any space between these two poles, no way to control how these pieces of personal information are visible."

The New Public Intellectuals | Inside Higher Ed

The New Public Intellectuals | Inside Higher Ed | Web 2.0 et société | Scoop.it
BeerBergman's insight:

Interesting series of articles, following the original article by Nick Kristof at the New York Times, on "Why is academic writing so academic?". Beyond the narratives of decline, not new, Matt Reed proposes an answer to Kristof's outcry.

***

I decided to include this article on my Scoop.it because of the inevitable influence of social media and its breaking down of isolated communities of thinkers. The question is: are they really breaking down these walls and how could the outerworld (thinking of "otherness" :-) influence not only academic writing, but perhaps even academic thinking.

Excerpt.

***

"The great value of the alternative public sphere that the web has opened, I think, is in bringing deep, detailed discussion of specifics to audiences that normally would have missed them.  The kind of broad, sweeping pronouncements that Public Intellectuals offer tend to do violence to facts on the ground, even if unintentionally.  When no alternative voices could be heard, that damage was hard to stop. Now, anyone who makes grand sweeping pronouncements on the internet learns abruptly what got left out, assumed, or glossed over.  Commenters make it known, often quickly.  The best online communities offer that kind of feedback in the spirit of moving to a more inclusive vision.

***

On my better days, I like to believe that a new model of the engaged academic is emerging. It’s less about proclaiming from on high, and more about gathering facts on the ground to move forward inclusively.  Those folks have always existed, but now they can connect with each other, and with non-specialists, too."

In Praise of Selfies: From Self-Conscious to Self-Constructive

In Praise of Selfies: From Self-Conscious to Self-Constructive | Web 2.0 et société | Scoop.it

And more on selfiesJust as the affordability of mirrors drove the rise of self-portraits in Renaissance Art, cameras have made every smartphone owner into a Nan Goldin.

BeerBergman's insight:

And more on selfies and art. Excerpt.

***

"Just as the affordability of mirrors drove the rise of self-portraits in Renaissance Art, reversible cameras have made every smartphone owner into a Cindy Sherman or Nan Goldin. On how we’re no longer self-conscious, but self-constructive.

***
We cherish the possibility that someone, anyone, might see us. If photographs possess reality in their pixels, then selfies allow us to possess ourselves: to stage identities and personas. There is the sense that getting the self-portrait just right will right our own identity: if I appear happy, then I must be happy; if I appear intellectual, then I must be an intellectual; if I appear beautiful, then I must be beautiful. Staging the right image becomes the mechanism for achieving that desired identity. The right self-portrait directs others to see us the way we desire to be seen.This has always been the power of self-portraiture. Rarely a documentary genre, self-portraits have always allowed us to craft an argument about who we are, convincing not only others, but also ourselves. While so often selfies are denounced as exercises in narcissism, I’ve always experienced them as experiments in solipsism. A selfie suggests that no one else in the world sees you as you truly are, that no one can be trusted with the camera but you.
***
IT’S NO SURPRISE THAT self-portraiture is a genre in which women have long excelled. For so long the male gaze fixed women on the canvas, page, and screen as subjects, but self-portraiture allowed women to challenge this gaze with the ways in which they saw themselves. From Frida Kahlo’s plaintive, surrealistic self-portraits in oil to Cindy Sherman’s conceptual, performative portraits of herself as actresses, gods, and models, female artists have embraced the genre as a way of reclaiming their own image. No longer only objects, women became artists and volunteered as their own subjects.
***
It took a while for memoirs and autobiographies to become honest: shedding their armor of artifice and objectivity. Perhaps self-portraits will do the same. Soon our photographs may be as honest and unadorned as our words—the pictures we take of ourselves as authentic as the pictures we take of others. However “uncharted, / Desolate, [and] reluctant” the present is, it’s worth documenting, not only for others, but for ourselves."

"The ostensible rationale for #MuseumSelfie day is to “to highlight the fun and ‘unstuffiness’ of museums/culture,” and its hard to find fault with that. I’m all for entertaining blurbs, audio guides, podcasts, interactive exhibit features, and certain museums could definitely use some airing out. But the museum-going experience should also be one that’s at least somewhat about interiority and individual reaction—and whatever the selfie is all about, interiority does not rank high. (Interior artistic reflection can be fun, by the way! Ferris Bueller taught us that.) It’s the foreground, not the background that is, by definition, the focus of the selfie."

Open Data, Data Protection, and Group Privacy - Springer

BeerBergman's insight:

Interesting article by Luciano Floridi on SpringerLink, on data protection for groups, and not only for individuals. Read the article. Excerpt.

***

"As I have argued elsewhere (Floridi 2013) our current ethical approach is too anthropocentric (only natural persons count) and atomistic (only the single individual count). We need to be more inclusive because we are underestimating the risks involved in opening anonymised personal data to public use, in cases in which groups of people may still be easily identified and targeted. Such inclusiveness should not be too hard to achieve. After all, we already accept as ordinary the fact that groups as agents may infringe on someone’s privacy.

***
There are very few Moby-Dicks. Most of us are sardines. The individual sardine may believe that the encircling net is trying to catch it. It is not. It is trying to catch the whole shoal. It is therefore the shoal that needs to be protected, if the sardine is to be saved. An ethics addressing each of us as if we were all special Moby-Dicks may be flattering and it is not mistaken, but needs to be upgraded urgently. Sometimes the only way to protect the individual is to protect the group to which the individual belongs. Preferably before any disaster happens."

The Real Victims of Journal Paywalls » Cyborgology | Web 2.0 et société | Scoop.it
BeerBergman's insight:

I recently posted an article on an ongoing debate of why scientific writing is so unreadable and will add another piece of information I found online: Jenny Davis' article on free access to scientific material. 

***

I actually am in one of the positions mentionedin the article: I consider myself an independent, non-trained (autodidact) professionnel, teaching classins outside University and sometimes a few hours at University.

I spend about 2 000 € per year on the purchase of books, to constitute a library around my subjects, and am not eager to add quite high costs on academic journals and libraries to that amount. Add to this the quite expensive books in some 'niche' sujects, like anthropology/tourism studies, and yes, I feel frustrated. MOOCS and other online training courses, give you access to scientific approaches, studying online (blogs, articles, debates) can do some of the rest - the missing part of journals becomes more and more evident when you advance in your research.

***

With the changes in formal training programs and education ideology, brought about by technology and changing ideas about access to information and training opportunities, access to these resources is going to be an important part for disclosure without constraint. The scientific community will probably discover more and more professionals capable of adding insights and analysis to their practices.

Pourquoi mon peignoir connecté peut-il me rendre meilleur chaque matin ? | Le Cercle Les Echos

BeerBergman's insight:

The article describes the - supposed - influence of a connected object, the peignoir, to enhance everyday life: it describes how the connected peignoir, not only a connected object but also a learning object, changes the habits and helps the user through its actual use of the object, to adjust his habits to its imperatives. An exemple of how human - technologie interactivity will probably shape our actual lives a few years on. 

***

Interesting article: from the use of the central notion "better [person]" to the integration of technology in everyday life. As for the first notion, the use of the word "better" (meilleur) in relation to the person : how can an object, connected as it is, make somebody "a better person"? What is a "better person"? What is the opposite of "the better person"?

***

The concept of connected items is in the center of attention of researchers, philosophers and sociologists, as well as journalists. The exemple of the connected peignoir is a nice exemple of how technology is supposed to augment our physical lifes. The main question is: how normative is the "embetterment", how effective we want to become and at what cost?

***

This type of technology being mostly in the hands of and used by early adopters, its testing takes place on a real life scale, and research is probably using clinical investigation as well as real life observations.

***

The outcome may well not be the "better person", and the technology here invoked may probably serve completely other purposes a couple of years from now, but the real life testing of the early adopters and the observations noted in the online press as well as in scientific journals is highly exciting!

BeerBergman's insight:

Interesting introduction to the basics of Social Sciences. I am not sure though, whether I share the conclusion : I bet that Facebook thought "hé, people are interacting on different levels, let's get that app". Not in the least because of the fact that WhatsApp doesn't guarantee privacy settings outside the US and collects extensive information about all your contacts, even those who are NOT on WhatsApp. Might have been a bright move, but time will tell.

Excerpt.

***

"What this person is getting at is that our communication needs change depending on the type of tie. An engagement or a new baby may well be best announced to a large group of weaker ties, whereas most day-to-day conversation is carried out with our smaller, primary social networks. (Yep, Facebook newsfeed versus WhatsApp). This is not an either/or statement. Both types of conversations and interactions are primal, important and central to human social interaction."

C'est toujours une vision dystopique des entreprises qui gagnent d' l'argent avec les données personnelles, mais que se passerait-il si on y incluait les entrepreneurs et chercheurs et formateurs qui vivent également de l'essor de ces données finalement ? Est-ce que les données ne sont pas la matière première d'une activité économique grandissante ?

Même si je me questionne sur le parti pris d'Antonio Casilli par rapport à la vie privée, je suis d'accord que cela révèle un modèle anglo-saxon et que les changements nous affectent à plusieurs niveaux. Article à lire. Extrait.

'Le rejet de l'hypothèse de la fin de la vie privée ne veut pas dire que rien n'a changé depuis l'essor du Web social. Nous assistons à la reformulation et à l'élargissement de la vision idéalisée, anglo-saxonne de la vie privée, héritée du XIXe siècle. Il fallait protéger un noyau de données sensibles du risque d'une pénétration depuis l'extérieur.

***

Dans un contexte de connectivité généralisée, la vie privée cesse d'être un droit individuel et devient une négociation collective. Il s'agit de définir à qui on peut dévoiler quoi, et de définir son rapport aux autres sur le Net, autant qu'aux entreprises comme Facebook et aux Etats. Cette « négociation » se renouvelle dans un cadre de complexité sociale et technologique croissante. "

"As ag blogger Ryan Goodman said about the felfie on his blog:

It's actually a pretty great way for farmers to mesh with a pop-culture movement and make a few connections that lead to a little advocacy. Adding a bit of personality to our messages helps build those relationships.
***
The felfie isn't just a product of having smart phones, it's also a product of having an all consuming job where you are mostly working alone. Snapping a photo of yourself doing something interesting to share with the world creates a fun and helpful circle for farmers to share what they love doing with others who are passionate about food and the environment. Don't get me wrong, I love my cows – they are part of my family – but it's good to have some interaction with folks with opposable thumbs, too.

Art at Arm’s Length: A History of the Selfie | Web 2.0 et société | Scoop.it
It’s become a new visual genre—a type of self-portraiture formally distinct from all others in history.
BeerBergman's insight:

Excellent analysis of a new genre, the #selfie. A must read. Extract.

***

"We live in the age of the selfie. A fast self-portrait, made with a smartphone’s camera and immediately distributed and inscribed into a network, is an instant visual communication of where we are, what we’re doing, who we think we are, and who we think is watching. Selfies have changed aspects of social interaction, body language, self-awareness, privacy, and humor, altering temporality, irony, and public behavior. It’s become a new visual genre—a type of self-portraiture formally distinct from all others in history. Selfies have their own structural autonomy. This is a very big deal for art.

Genres arise relatively rarely. Portraiture is a genre. So is still-life, landscape, animal painting, history painting. (They overlap, too: A portrait might be in a seascape.) A genre possesses its own formal logic, with tropes and structural wisdom, and lasts a long time, until all the problems it was invented to address have been fully addressed. (Genres are distinct from styles, which come and go: There are Expressionist portraits, Cubist portraits, Impressionist portraits, Norman Rockwell portraits. Style is the endless variation within genre.)"
