    1. Among the many phenomena we’d tentatively attribute, in large part, to the trend: the rise of sharebait (nee clickbait) and the general BuzzFeedification of traditional media; the Internet hoax-industrial complex, which only seems to be growing stronger; and the utter lack of intelligent online discourse around any remotely complicated, controversial topic.

    1. Evaluate

      I believe this is an important skill to have and to teach nowadays. Especially with the readily shareable content on social media people could post things with out critically evaluating what content is saying/where it comes from/if it is credible or not.

      • Di sini kami memperlihatkan manfaat preprint dengan keleluasaanya (tanpa batasan format, ukuran, jenis berkas dll) akan memberikan dorongan bagi peneliti untuk mempublikasi data dan metode (misal kode program).

      • Ada banyak platform berbagi kode (seperti Github dan Gitlab) yang membuka banyak pintu keterbatasan saat penulis ingin membagikan kode program.

      • Platform-platform ini juga mendukung proses berbagi dokumen dan data yang cari (fluid), karena semua orang dapat dengan mudah menggandakan (forking melalui perintah git clone) proyek seseorang untuk kemudian digunakan, dimodifikasi, dan pada akhirnya mungkin mereka meminta kreator orisinalnya untuk memasukkan modifikasi menjadi versi baru dari kode program.

      • Hebatnya semua proses itu tercatat dengan hubungan antara repositori dan akun yang jelas terlihat.

    1. greater integration of data, data security, and data sharing through the establishment of a searchable database.

      Would be great to connect these efforts with others who work on this from the data end, e.g. RDA as mentioned above.

      Also, the presentation at http://www.gfbr.global/wp-content/uploads/2018/12/PG4-Alpha-Ahmadou-Diallo.pptx states

      This data will be made available to the public and to scientific and humanitarian health communities to disseminate knowledge about the disease, support the expansion of research in West Africa, and improve patient care and future response to an outbreak.

      but the notion of public access is not clearly articulated in the present article.

    2. platform

      Does it have a name and online presence? The details provided here go beyond what's given in reference 13, but some more detail would still be useful, e.g. to connect the initiative to efforts directed at data management and curation more generally, for instance in the framework of the Research Data Alliance, https://www.rd-alliance.org/ .

    1. Thefirst step in answeringthese questions is to reject the view of methods and digital data analysis as‘pure’technical toolsin the hands of objective agents, and subject those very tools to a more rigorous form of study:methods must become objects of inquiry.

      This reminds me of what Bodong has discussed in the Chinese paper on the difference between "analytics" and "analysis". If we can treated "analysis" as an objective, pure technical process, or maybe we cannot, "analytics" can never be objective. For any research, what is considered as evidence, how to collect evidence, and how to interpret the results, either the quantitative or qualitative, are far from objective or pure technical.

    1. may unintentionally change the system being tracked.

      I had an assumption that learning analytics mostly use data collected from online learning environment. This may not be true, but it is possible that online teaching can change people's mindset of what learning is, and how learning should occur.

    1. The assessment of frequencies and sequences of regulatory activities in learning environments provides a novelperspective on SRL that complements and potentially supersedes traditional self-report measures

      Learning analytics really can help provide a better description of students' behavior, in which couldn't be measured by survey or other self-report methods. But it seems there can be research performed on how what students actually do can be related to what they reported they were doing.

    1. increasingly sophisticated technologies that allow for moment-by-moment tracking of our every click, utterance, gesture, and gaze

      It is so amazing how the technologies enable us to do.

    1. Through the use of mobile devices, learning man-agement systems (LMS), and social media, a greater portion of the learning process generates digital trails. A student who logs into an LMS leaves thousands of data points, including navigation patterns, pauses, reading habits, and writing habits. These data points may be ambiguous and require additional exploration in order to understand what an extended pause of reading means

      The digital technologies formed new media for organizing educational content and student interactivity. Talking specifically about the rich data in LMS, which still in demand for in-depth research and exploration, may bring instructors deeper understanding on students' performance and their personal academic needs.

      I’ve always wondered, and you would’ve wondered too, which is the better ride sharing service: Uber Vs. Lyft?

      If you are planning to build your own on-demand taxi app service, instead of developing your own app from scratch, it is advisable to go with the Uber clone app development approach.

    1. Strategy Exchange

      When students share what they found with each other, they are helping each other to find more information.

      By figuring out what is the best out of all the MP3 players, they are comprehending the information that is being presented on each website.

    1. Local- using social media, technology, keeping it horizontal, keeping it simple and humble, celebration is important.
    2. There are all these different structures. Thirdly, we need to inter-pollinate, and share these experiences. We need the culture of dialogue. We need to learn how to communicate in different ways- to share patterns, dance, paint etc. Finally, I would like to call it a carnival, and not a confluence- including different worlds,
    3. One of the proposals would be togenerate more spaces for sharing knowledges. Eg providing virtual spaces, eg I have done this, what has and hasn ́t worked. I admire what you do in Unitierra, and the Zapatista, and my context is very different, so we need to change the way of looking atthings.

      There is a thing which we call Federated Wiki, that challenges how we produce knowledge : http://federated.wiki/federated-wiki-introduction.html

    1. Right now, they estimate the global taxi market is worth $108 billion, which is triple the size of the $36-billion ride-hailing market. At the same time, they calculate an average of 15 million ride-hailing trips a day globally, which they expect to increase to 97 million by 2030.
    1. In historical context, Uber’s extraordinary losses are thus not just a case of growing pains of an ambitious Silicon Valley startup, but a reflection of the deep structural deficiencies in ride-hail industry economics. Prior to artificial regulatory supply caps, the unregulated taxi industry was unprofitable and subject to growing concerns over negative externalities. Uber is now facing the same relentless drag on its P&L.
    1. The Achilles’ heel of Uber and Lyft is their centralized management of pricing. This week's uproar by drivers — and their willingness to join an alternative — shows the failure of that approach. You cannot build a long-term relationship with drivers if you are taking away their ability to set their own pricing. Arcade City will decentralize those decisions to the level of the driver and their customers.
    1. Here is my sense of the topics that resonated most clearly:

      1. I am aware, so aware, that definitions rule. They make us imagine our practice.
      2. I am aware that less is so often more.
      3. The R&D arm of each generation is already at work constraining and cajoling.
      4. Our poets and dogs drag home the damndest things: bones, mirrors and seeds.
      5. And still it is not enough.
      6. The margins are a moving target that even its authors may no longer recognize.
      7. Even if Yeats is right and the best lack all conviction and the worst are full of passionate hootery, we still note our thanks, we continue to add to the pile, and we keep open and keep on. and get down now.

    1. Creating simple bookmarklets on your Android phone with URL Forwarder

      I’d run across this wonder of an app a couple of years back too. I’ve been using it for a while, but to post to my WordPress and WithKnown based websites. WordPress and some of it’s subsidiary plugins utilize URL parameters in such a way that URL Forwarder can be easily configured for them as well.  Details can be found at http://boffosocko.com/2017/01/10/browser-bookmarklets-and-mobile-sharing-with-post-kinds-plugin-for-wordpress/#A%20Post%20Kinds%20%E2%80%9CBookmarklet%E2%80%9D%20for%20Mobile

    1. Miracles are teaching devices for demonstrating it is as blessed to give as to receive.

      Please do not use this statement to justify a charity of any kind. The author speaks about the level of the Mind. When a musician shares his song with others, it hardly means for him it's lost; the spreading makes it stronger and gives him opportunities he didn't have before. The Course takes this idea and brings it to the level where you will be amazed for sure.

      If you share a physical possession, you do divide its ownership. If you share an idea, however, you do not lessen it. All of it is still yours although all of it has been given away. T-5.1.1

      A major learning goal this course has set is to reverse your view of giving, so you can receive ... God's gifts will never lessen when they are given away. They but increase thereby. W-105.3

      To learn that giving and receiving are the same has special usefulness, because it can be tried so easily and seen as true. W-108.6

      All that I give is given to myself. W-126

    1. Most proposals (148) were for a new study and publication, with confirmation of original studies’ results (3) being quite uncommon.

      This is a very important statistic to quote, because people always assume the negative use case, i.e., "weaponizing data". I think that does happen, but the more we can gather the statistics, the better we are able to address it.

  23. Jun 2017
    1. t’s noteworthy that 174 of the 177 proposals submitted did not involve reanalysis of original results or disproving of the findings of the original analyses; the bulk of the proposals were for new research. Thus, sponsors’ fears regarding making these data available have not been realized.

      Good statistic to have

    1. Of course, if you want to put a positive spin on this kind of work, you can call it flexible, decentralized micro-entrepreneurship. But pan out, and it looks more like feudalism, with thousands of small subsistence farmers paying tribute to a baron that grants them access to land they don’t own.

    1. as faculty mature in their understanding of OER they will have a greater desire to engage in these and other open pedagogy practices

      disagree that it's a faculty maturity issue - if it gets easier to do (less time) more of them will. But not if the results are not openly shared.
