What happens when all textbooks are (only) digital? Ask the Koreans! | A World Bank Blog on ICT use in Education

What happens when all textbooks are (only) digital? Ask the Koreans! | A World Bank Blog on ICT use in Education | Corridor of learning | Scoop.it
A few years ago, a World Bank study highlighted the fact that there simply aren't enough textbooks for most students in Africa, and what is available is too expensive. In response to this reality, some people at the World Bank have been exploring various options for addressing the 'textbook gap', including initiatives investigating the potential cost-effectiveness of 'e-books' for African students.

What do new Social Networks tell us about Digital Literacies? | DMLcentral

What do new Social Networks tell us about Digital Literacies? | DMLcentral | Corridor of learning | Scoop.it
The recent launch of Google+, a new social network, has caused ripples in many different online spaces. From talk of it being a ‘Facebook killer’ because of its enhanced privacy settings to discussion of who one should place in the various ‘Circles’ available to users, the focus has been on technical aspects of the new service. What interests me, however, is how using the lens of digital literacies can cast light on practices and interactions in these spheres.

Learning with 'e's: Just a minute

Learning with 'e's: Just a minute | Corridor of learning | Scoop.it
The sheer volume of content being created and posted to the web is overwhelming. In a post brought to my attention today, Kelly Hodgkins claims that if we paused the web for 60 seconds we would miss the birth of more than 1500 new blog posts, almost 100,000 new tweets, 20,000 posts on Tumblr, 600 new videos (more than 24 hours) uploaded to YouTube and at least 12,000 new ads on Craigslist. Such a claim must also take into account that much of this content will be quite worthless to anyone but the person uploading it, of which more later. These statistics also fail to take into account all the other content that is being generated on, for example Flickr (more than 3000 images each minute), Wikipedia, Facebook (3 billion photos and 20 million videos uploaded every month), Myspace, Wiktionary, Vimeo, Picasa and innumerable other user generated content repositories.
