Social Networking In Schools: Educators Debate The Merits Of Technology In Classrooms





In this digital world, opportunities for education are available like never before. Though teachers using online tools are empowering students take part in their education, they may also expose them to inappropriate material, sexual predators, and bullying and harassment by peers.

Social Networking In Schools: Educators Debate The Merits Of Technology In Classrooms.

As the debate over the role technology and social networking play in the classroom continues, proponents on both sides are fighting to find a balance between the importance of innovation and the safety of students. Though there are risks associated with encouraging students to use social networking sites, proponents argue the potential for opportunity outweigh the costs. As solutions that satisfy both sides continue to develop, online education resources may pave the way for growth in America’s schools.

limits of web 2.0 and frustration caused

limits of web 2.0 and frustration caused.

Ever since I arrived in this corner of the world: Normandy, following a new assignment and a new position, I have been willing to acquire a home, preferably a house. Whether I will eventually have one remains to be seen, point of this post.

Depuis que je suis arrivé dans ce coin du monde, la Normandie, à la suite d’un nouveau boulot, j’ai voulu acquérir un logement, une maison de préférence. Que j’en ai finalement une reste à voir, c’est le sujet de ce billet.

La personnalisation est la clé du succès du 2.0 en entreprise

Pour encourager les collaborateurs à utiliser les outils 2.0 en interne, il est nécessaire de rendre ces derniers adaptés à chacun. C’est en tout cas le postulat de Dassault Systèmes : il vient de lancer un Intranet qui peut être configuré de manière individuelle, selon ses goûts et ses domaines d’expertise. “Plus qu’une collection d’outils technologiques, notre nouvel Intranet est un environnement riche et diversifié totalement personnalisable”, explique à L’Atelier Tarik Lebtahi, communication manager chez Dassault Systèmes. La plate-forme fonctionne à l’instar d’un jeu de Lego : le collaborateur construit son propre Intranet, à partir de briques corporate mais également de communautés.

      • “Leading countries”: Switzerland, Finland, Sweden, Denmark and Germany
      • “Average performance”: France, Luxembourg, Ireland, United Kingdom, Netherlands, Belgium, Austria, Norway, Italy and Iceland
      • “Catching up”: Slovenia, Hungary, Portugal, Czech Republic, Lithuania, Latvia, Greece, Cyprus and Malta
      • “Losing ground”: Estonia, Spain, Bulgaria, Poland, Slovakia, Romania and Turkey

      “The innovation scoreboard clearly shows that we have to do more for innovation. Boosting innovation is a major pillar in our Partnership for Growth and Jobs. There is clear evidence that more innovative sectors tend to have higher productivity growth rates”, Vice President Günter
      Verheugen said.

      The European Innovation scoreboard highlights significant national differences. The EIS shows an overall picture of innovation performance in Europe. Nordic countries plus Germany are the EU innovation leaders. The new Member States are either in a catching up process or are losing ground. Most of the “old” Member States are in a larger group of average performing countries.

  • The EU invests about a third less in research than the US, and the EU/US innovation gap has not narrowed in recent years. Meanwhile, emerging countries like China and India are fast becoming world-class centres of research and innovation.
    • The study ranks 110 nations on an index which weighs the business outcomes of innovation an governments’ encouragement and support of innovation.

      Singapore leads all countries, followed by South Korea, Switzerland, Iceland, Ireland, Hong Kong, Finland, the U.S., Japan and Sweden.

    • During the “Feed Me: Bite Size Info for a Hungry Internet” panel today at SXSW (moderated by VentureBeat’s own Eric Eldon) all the participants agreed that social streams of data are going to be an integral part of the web going forward. David Sacks, the chief executive of Yammer, went farther, calling these streams “email 2.0.” No one seemed to disagree.
    • During the question and answer session, David Karp, the co-founder of Tumblr, who was in the audience, asked why any of these services really matter — why not just use a standard like RSS to syndicate this data everywhere, he wondered? Dare Obasanjo of Microsoft pointed out that the reason people need services for the social stream is that while something like RSS may be fine for the tech savvy crowd, mothers or grandmothers would take one look at it and not understand what is going on. Seeing everything in a stream on Facebook though, and having a simple publishing tool that makes it clear how you insert pictures and other elements, is the key for the mainstream.
    • étude a été menée auprès de plus de 300 responsables informatiques seniors travaillant dans l’industrie manufacturière, les services financiers, et les industries de détail dans le monde entier, ainsi que dans les agences gouvernementales.

      Plus de la moitié des responsables informatiques interrogés par l’étude prévoient d’accélérer l’adoption de Linux en 2009. Par ailleurs, plus de 72 % des personnes interrogées ont affirmé qu’elles y réfléchissaient sérieusement, ou qu’elles avaient déjà décidé d’augmenter leur utilisation de Linux sur le serveur en 2009, avec plus de 68 % pour le poste de travail.

    • il convient de souligner que les personnes hésitant à adopter Linux ont indiqué qu’elles étaient principalement préoccupées par le manque de prise en charge des applications et la mauvaise interopérabilité avec Windows et d’autres environnements.

    “Many people still don’t understand RSS. I’ve yet to run across an organization that puts really valuable information on an RSS Feed. If there is no valuable information on the feed, why subsribe? Hence…the reason Enterprise RSS is dying/dead.” – this is not a valid reason, otherwise many things that most do not understand would not ever be implemented. There’s a learning curve for everything. – lelapin

    L’agenda des TIC pour 2018 en Europe – Tumblr Fing

    Highlights and Sticky Notes:

    Pour Ben Verwaayen, président d’Alcatel-Lucent, le chemin semble clair : nous entrons dans l’ère de la coopération. Ce qui va ouvrir de nouvelles façons de travailler ensemble. “Nous sommes engagés de manière irréversible vers un environnement de collaboration, à l’échelle mondiale.” L’agenda est clair selon lui : il va nous falloir apprendre à mieux travailler ensemble. Reste à savoir comment, car les problèmes pour transformer une idée, un concept, une recherche en succès commercial est loin d’être évident.
