Open Access Week

Open Access Week | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

Την εβδομάδα από 22 έως 28 Οκτωβρίου διοργανώνεται η εβδομάδα ανοιχτής πρόσβασης (Open Access Week). H εβδομάδα ανοιχτής πρόσβασης είναι μια παγκόσμια εκδήλωση που λαμβάνει χώρα σε διάφορα μέρη στον πλανήτη για έκτη συνεχόμενη χρονιά και δίνει την ευκαιρία στα μέλη της ακαδημαϊκής και ερευνητικής κοινότητας να συμμετέχουν και διαδικτυακά. Στόχος της εκδήλωσης είναι η “συνάντηση” της ακαδημαϊκής και ερευνητικής κοινότητας και η ενημέρωση για τα οφέλη της Ανοιχτής Πρόσβασης σε διάφορους τομείς όπως η εκπαίδευση, η έρευνα, η επιχειρηματικότητα κτλ.

 

Οι εμπνευστές της εβδομάδας ανοιχτής πρόσβασης υποστηρίζουν ότι η ανοιχτή πρόσβαση στην πληροφορία – η ελεύθερη, άμεση και διαδικτυακή πρόσβαση σε αποτελέσματα ακαδημαϊκής έρευνας και το δικαίωμα στη χρήση και επαναχρησιμοποίηση αυτών των αποτελεσμάτων – στόχο έχει να αλλάξει τον τρόπο που γίνεται η έρευνα παγκοσμίως! Η αλλαγή αυτή στη μέθοδο έρευνας επηρεάζει διάφορους τομείς όπως την εκπαίδευση, την ιατρική, την επιστήμη, την βιομηχανία και την κοινωνία σε σύνολο. Παράλληλα, σκοπός της Ανοιχτής Πρόσβασης στη Πληροφορία είναι να μεγιστοποιηθούν οι επενδύσεις στην έρευνα, να αυξηθεί η δημοσιότητα ερευνών και εκπαιδευτικών προγραμμάτων και η διευκόλυνση των μαθητών, καθηγητών και ερευνητών.

 

Περισσότερες πληροφορίες για την εβδομάδα ανοιχτής πρόσβασης και για τον τρόπο συμμετοχής σε αυτήν μπορείτε να βρείτε στο: www.openaccessweek.org

Game Theory (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy)

Game Theory (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy) | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

Game theory is the study of the ways in which strategic interactions among economic agents produce outcomes with respect to the preferences (or utilities) of those agents, where the outcomes in question might have been intended by none of the agents. The meaning of this statement will not be clear to the non-expert until each of the italicized words and phrases has been explained and featured in some examples. Doing this will be the main business of this article. First, however, we provide some historical and philosophical context in order to motivate the reader for the technical work ahead.

Curation At Work: The David Rumsey Historical Map Collection | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

Robin Good: The David Ramsey Map Collection is an historical collection of thousands of beautiful maps and atlases organized and made freely accessible to the public online in unique and unprecedented ways.


This is a stunning example of a visual curated collection, offering thousands of beautiful images at very high quality, and multiple ways and tools to navigate this ocean of maps.

 

This online collection offers in fact no less than 12 different ways to navigate its contents by providing dedicated browsers and visual imaging tools ranging from 2D-GIS to SecondLife and virtual QTR panoramas. For example, with the Google Earth visualization, any map in the collection can be seen perfectly mapped on the globe, or by using the Luna Browser one can create collections, save and download images, annotate maps or even create embeddable presentations.

All of the images in the collection have been published online at full resolution and are available to download at different quality levels under a Creative Commons License for non-commercial uses.

This is truly a spectacular collection with marvellous maps and atlases enriched by complementary data, visualization tools and a formidable array of navigation devices.

 

Possibly the best online curated collection I have seen so far.

 

Must-see. 10/10

"Your brain is more flexible than we've ever thought before. It changes because it is constantly optimizing itself, reorganizing itself by transferring cognitive abilities from one lobe to the other, particularly as you age. After a stroke, for instance, your brain can reorganize itself to move functions to undamaged areas."

Brain Research: Adolescents Learn More in Cooperative Groups | MiddleWeb

Brain Research: Adolescents Learn More in Cooperative Groups | MiddleWeb | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it
Judy Willis, a neurologist & middle grades teacher, says adolescent brains learn more through interactive, interdependent group work.

Did you know that "peer group influence plays an important developmental role in the psychosocial process of separation from parents"? What does this mean to teachers of middle school students? That "interactive, interdependent group work" helps middle school students "build happy, learning brains."

This post will help you learn more about brain science, successful group work, how to plan for success, provides some researched-based guidelines and more.

Devon Clarke's curator insight, October 22, 4:44 PM

When it comes to adolescents brain development in our western society today we can rely on school systems to play a large role in this. In this article is talks about how cooperative work groups in middle schools are the best ways for children to learn (Willis, 2012). I found this article to relate very closely to an academic journal I read comparing social development in pre schoolers in a values education program (Dereli-Iman, E, 2014, p.263). In the experiment of the academic journal researches found that children put into the values education program had better social development and less behavioural issues  (Dereli-Iman, E, 2014, p.263).  Even though this article of cooperative groups deals with middle schools students, it proves to say that cooperative learning groups gets all children involved, and forms for the greatest  levels of conceptual learning  (Dereli-Iman, E, 2014, p.263). In the text book Exploring Psychology in Modules, they state that day care is an area that has a huge impact on a child's development (Myers & Myers, 2008, p. 148). As Whetten stated, good quality child care is a warm and stimulations place for children, and poor child care is boring for this children making them unresponsive (Myers & Myers, 2008, p. 149). From these three articles you can see that schooling for children plays a huge role in brain development, and it is important to make sure they are in a good environment. Thought the author of this article, Judy Willis did not use a lot of scientific reasoning and proof in her article I found her findings and background to be very impressive. It would have made the article a little bit better if she would have added in some statistics to back up her reasoning about cooperative groups (Willis, 2012). A possible diverse group that would be effected through cooperative learning are kids from other countries who do not speak the foreign language. If a child was put into a cooperative group and was not able to converse with the other children it could possibly lead to negative outcomes for that student.

Social Network Demographics In 2012

Social Network Demographics In 2012 | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it
Do you know how old the average Twitter or Facebook user is? Do you know what share of Reddit’s users are women? We could go on and on; when it comes to social network demographics, the questions are endless.

Pingdom shows here the age and gender distribution on 24 of today’s most popular social networks and online communities.

 

Social media is most definitely not just for the young:

55% of Twitter users are 35 or older. 63% of Pinterest users are 35 or older. 65% of Facebook users are 35 or older. 79% of LinkedIn users are 35 or older.

 

Some sites have a considerable bias toward younger users:

58% of Reddit users are under 35. 60% of Github users are under 35. 63% of Hi5 users are under 35. 69% of Hacker News users are under 35. 69% of deviantART users are under 35. 83% of Orkut users are under 35.

 

Average user age per site

Based on the sites in this survey, the estimated age of the average social media user is just under 37 years old. Here are some other observations:

The oldest users. LinkedIn has the oldest user base, with the average user being 44.2 years old. The average Facebook user is 40.5 years old. The average Twitter user is 37.3 years old. The age trend for Facebook and Twitter.  Twitter’s user base is getting younger, while Facebook’s is getting older.

 

What about gender?

Based on the United States demographics data (from Ad Planner) there is a clear gender imbalance on many of these sites. Some are much more male dominated, and vice versa. However, when you look at all the data together, it becomes clear that women rule social media. More than two thirds of the sites in this survey have more female than male users.

 

Other observations:

17 out of 24 sites (71%) have more female than male users. The average gender distribution is 48.75% male, 51.25% female. Most male-dominated site? Slashdot (87% males) is the standout, followed by Hacker News (77% males) and Stack Overflow (76% males). In general, the more tech-focused sites in this survey have more male users than female. Most female-dominated site? Pinterest (79% females) is in a league of its own, followed by Goodreads (70% females) and Blogger (66% females). Facebook and Twitter have the same gender distribution: 40% male, 60% female.

As you can see, the only sites in this survey with more male than female users are Quora, Reddit, Orkut, Github, Stack Overflow, Hacker News and Slashdot.

Takeaway:  There’s a place for everyone in today’s social media landscape. These sites have users that span the entire age spectrum, and there really are no limits to what you can achieve online, regardless of age or gender.

 

A note on the source data: All the demographics data in this survey is for the United States, but the patterns shown here should translate roughly to other countries as well. That said, there are regional differences, so keep that in mind if you’re applying this to other parts of the world.
