Technomad

“The term ‘technomad’ seems to have emerged in 1983, when freelance writer and software designer Stephen K. Roberts resolved to stop “doing things [he] didn’t really enjoy to pay for things [he] didn’t really want.” He hit the road with a specially designed, high-tech recumbent bicycle—complete with solar panels, a stereo, and a built-in laptop he could work on whilst pedaling—and the idea of the roving, tech-enabled explorer was born. In 2010, the term was re-introduced into the cultural vernacular in a TED Talk by internet curator Sean Bonner.”

Puedo estar equivocado reAprender (por Diego Leal) | reAprender (por Diego Leal)

Muy buenas observaciones sobre la lectura de blogs, entre ellas:
“- Puedo estar equivocado. Y es mi privilegio (y derecho!) cambiar de opinión si entiendo cosas que antes no entendía.
– Al igual que tantos otros, estoy aprendiendo. Sólo que me convencí desde hace años de la utilidad de compartir ese proceso  (en lo posible).
– Cualquier recurso que haya producido, sin importar su medio, es una representación PARCIAL de lo que sé. Primero, porque los mismos medios definen/limitan lo que puede comunicarse a través de ellos. Segundo, porque mi comprensión cambia con el tiempo (de eso se trata estar vivo!). –

Impact of Social Sciences – Shorter, better, faster, free: Blogging changes the nature of academic research, not just how it is communicated

“Academic blogging gets your work and research out to a potentially massive audience at very, very low cost and relative amount of effort. Patrick Dunleavy argues blogging and tweeting from multi-author blogs especially is a great way to build knowledge of your work, to grow readership of useful articles and research reports, to build up citations, and to foster debate across academia, government, civil society and the public in general.”

Getting Strategic About Online Learning | Contact North

Some simple truths need to be kept in mind. Three seem most important:

1. Learning is always about relationships – the relationship between the learner and knowledge, learner and the instructor and between the learner and his or her peers. Memorable learning links to relationships. Online learning must be seen as being about enabling and strengthening relationships.
2. Learning is about commitment – learners and instructors as well as institutional leaders and academic administrators need to be committed to the task of learning and teaching. Online learning has to enable this commitment to be demonstrated. If we see online learning as a distribution platform or a way of reducing cost we are in danger of reducing commitment.
3. Learning outcomes stem from learner engagement – powerful learning occurs when students feel engaged with the work of learning. Online learning needs to be designed to enable this to occur. If its text and video connected to machine marked quizzes how can I become engaged? This is why instructional design is so important – online learning will be transformative when it truly is more engaging than any other form of learning.
As we learn our way to the next generation of our colleges and universities – one which embraces online learning – we need to bear in mind these core truths. If we lose sight of them, we lose sight of why we created these institutions in the first place.

El futuro de la lectura

La pregunta no es: ¿qué leeremos dentro de unas décadas?Más importante parece ser cómo lo haremos. Muchas personas se preguntan de qué forma leeremos en el futuro próximo. Naturalmente, la primera cuestión que nos viene a la cabeza es si se seguirán publicando libros en papel. Teniendo en cuenta el auge de los E-Books, la duda es si existirán o no bibliotecas dentro de un siglo. En caso negativo, ¿qué harán aquellos que tienen la costumbre de coger tomos de los estantes? ¿Tendremos que renunciar a las librerías y optar por gigantes como Amazon para que nos manden los ejemplares directamente a casa?
