Nouvel accrochage sur le voile à l’université

À l’Institut d’études politiques d’Aix-en-Provence, un enseignant a pris à partie une étudiante voilée, l’accusant en plein cours d’être le «cheval de Troie de l’islamisme». Plus...

The Might-Work Clearinghouse

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. The Might-Work Clearinghouse
Doug Noon is quite right and my own observation confirms what he says (and supports, with some interesting reading) in this post: "Nobody in their right mind would conduct real science experiments on kids without also planning on going to prison. The government calls the studies they're doing scientific, but they're really just statistical analyses. Education research isn't science. It's social science. But, of course, social science doesn't have quite enough of an authoritative ring to justify massively disruptive policy decisions. As a sales pitch, calling these government reports scientifically-based research does seem to be working". More...

GReader Help Through Trailfire

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. GReader Help Through Trailfire
Scott Leslie has been experimenting with a program called Trailfire, which, as he explains, creates lists of web pages so other people can follow your trail through a series of web pages. He says, "It's the kind of thing I thought the connectivist and open education crowd would be quite excited about." I can't see the images he's linking to. More...

PearsonEd Accepts the Edugator Challenge

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. PearsonEd Accepts the Edugator Challenge
Pearson Education, the largest U.S. textbook publisher, is publishing (and selling) videos of academic lectures through Google (Here's one). Yes, it's a bad idea - after all, it costs, what, ten cents to produce one? Yes, other people can (and will) produce equivalent quality videos. Link, say, at VideoLectures (link via George Siemens). But no doubt Pearson (and Google, if they're actually partnering) will do everything they can to make sure nobody can find them. What's next, music theory from Idol Critic, ten dollars for high rez? Interestingly, the same site has a post about the collapse of CD sales, drawing the analogy with a concordant drop in textbook sales. "Textbook publishers, the oligarchs sitting in their comfy thrones atop the multi-billion dollar industry, are in much the same position as the RIAA or MPAA. Unlike the major film studios and music labels, however, there is little sign that they have woken up and smelled their fate". More...

Digital Learning Apartheid

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Digital Learning Apartheid
George Siemens links to this very badly titled article focusing on the need to provide educational opportunities for the poor in the United States. "If the country's Digital Educational Apartheid is to be eliminated... then as a country, we must develop and test innovative systemic solutions." First, I don't think it's appropriate to use the term 'apartheid' in this way - it has a very specific meaning and is not merely a substitute for 'poor'. I can't believe they've actually trademarked the term. Second, I would much rather see initiatives aimed at helping all the world's poor, not just those in the world's richest nation. I have always supported online learning precisely because I believe it is the best hope to provide learning for everyone. But my interest in this does not end at the border, and never will. More...

Blogs, Wikis and Knowledge

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Blogs, Wikis and Knowledge
Some back and forth on whether blogs and wikis can contribute to conversations, scaffold educational experiences, and the like. I will have more to say on this in "'Contribute to knowledge building from personal space' is a bit like saying that someone is 'contributing to the world peace from their own territory'. With missiles?" More...

Interesting link to a widget that lets you post all your different identities in one place. When I look at it, I just see what a mess the web's personal sign-on system is. And, of course, if you are one of the selected vendors, you can't be listed by this widget (forget portable identities - there's a business model there if it gets popular). meanwhile, I have people over on the other blog insisting that companies work together.

PLE As Retreat Versus Productivity Suite

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. PLE As Retreat Versus Productivity Suite
Interesting take on personal learning environments (PLEs). "Personally, I want to keep some distance between my own PLE and things like my personal calendar ('let's see is it my turn to pick-up our son from pre-school?'), 'to do' list ('I really do need to get that oil changed on the car'), stock portfolio, general email, etc." Right. Look at the image in this post. More...
