25 February 2007 – Issue : 718

Since its launch in January 2005, the proportion of European schools participating in the European Commission’s eTwinning programme more than doubled in 2006, from four percent to over eight percent according to commission reports last week.

Welcoming the growth and success, Jan Figel, Commissioner in charge of Education & Training, said in a statement: “the eTwinning scheme can bring all corners of Europe to our children’s classrooms. By participating in eTwinning, school children get to appreciate other cultures and other languages, while sharpening their computer skills. In this way, eTwinning not only brings Europeans from all over the continent closer, it helps develop the kinds of skills that our increasingly ICT-dominated economy needs.” (leer más…)

He estado leyendo hoy el blog de Harold Jarche con su post titulado “The future of learning is DIY”

If someone asks me what’s the best learning management system, my initial response is – Google. Donald Clark describes the top five global brands (Google, Apple, YouTube, Wikipedia, Starbucks) from the perspective of learning, with this comment:

Could it be that powerful, everyday ‘e-learning’ has crept up on the world, separate from all the academic and institutional noise, and in a consumerist fashion?

All of these brands enable informal learning, grassroots knowledge management or collaboration on a local or global scale.

le he hecho un comentario global que reproduzco aquí:
“No os asusta la dependencia de algunas herramientas para el desarrollo global del conocimiento?.
Me he permitido dirigiros a un post de mi blog, en el que cuento la fábula del caballo poliploide de Gregory Bateson.
Saludos”
Como véis me ha traido a la memoria algunos posts antigüos sobre Google sobre todo los dos siguientes:
miércoles 1 de noviembre de 2006 [not] El cuento del caballo poliploide:El imperialismo Google desembarca en los wikis. Jotspot Google.donde me dejo llevar por dos fábulas de Bateson; y el jueves 4 de enero de 2007 Big Brothers: Mozilla, el software libre y Google. Imperialismo Google ataca de nuevo?(III)

Pronto, de Horizon Wimba, mensajería instantánea

Pronto logo

Say hello to Pronto!

GET PRONTO NOW!

  • School-centric instant communication tool
  • Simplifies communication on any campus
  • Instant text and audio facilitating learning at any time among students and instructors
  • Ideal for informal, unplanned communication

Read The WhitepaperRead about Pronto (.pdf)

Pronto is a free instant messaging and voice chat tool that allows students and instructors to spontaneously meet live online at any time to discuss their coursework. Pronto works with course management systems like Blackboard and WebCT to automatically populate students’ contact lists with their classmates’ names, thereby making it easy for students to spontaneously collaborate live online. After all, not all learning can be scheduled – it’s often informal and unplanned.

While Pronto offers many similar features as other instant messaging tools such as AIM and Yahoo Instant Messenger, Pronto is unique to education because it integrates with course management systems such as Blackboard and WebCT, thereby automatically populating each student’s contact list each semester with the names of every student in their classes and social organizations. With Pronto, students simply log on to their computers and instantly see who’s online from their classes, clubs, and study groups – without even logging in to their CMS. Each student can then spontaneously ask questions or make comments to classmates.

*Please note that Pronto currently works for schools with the Blackboard Learning System 6.3+ and above and with Blackboard (WebCT) Campus Edition 6 and Vista 4. Support for WebCT Vista 3.0, ANGEL, and Moodle is currently being developed.

February 26, 2007 (Computerworld) — The U.S. Department of Defense’s lead intelligence agency is using wikis, blogs, RSS feeds and enterprise “mashups” to help its analysts collaborate better when sifting through data used to support military operations.

The Defense Intelligence Agency is seeing “mushrooming” use of various Web 2.0 technologies, which are becoming increasingly critical to accomplishing missions that require analysts to share intelligence, said Lewis Shepherd, chief of the DIA’s requirements and research group at the Pentagon.

The tools are helping the DIA meet the directives from the 9-11 Commission and other entities for intelligence agencies to “improve and deepen our collaborative work processes,” he said.

The DIA launched its first wiki, dubbed Intellipedia, in 2004 on the Defense Department’s Joint Worldwide Intelligence Communications System, a top-secret network that links all of the government’s intelligence agencies.(leer más…)

··· par le CRI, mercredi 7 février 2007 <!–

–>

Le département CRI du Greta du Velay vous invite à vous rencontrer le jeudi 1er mars 2007 pour la 3ème édition des Rencontres, sur le thème : e-learning & territoires ruraux. Elles posent la question de l’accès aux technologies sur les territoires ruraux. Comment les personnes isolées peuvent tirer bénéfice des technologies ? Comment développer les usages individuels et collectifs ? Quelles formations et quels accompagnements sont nécessaires pour favoriser l’émergence d’initiatives en milieu rural ?

Une conférence de Jean-Luc Mayaud, historien spécialiste des études rurales et rédacteur en chef de Ruralia, ouvrira le débat. Nous aurons également le plaisir d’accueillir Arnaud Klein de la Fing qui éclairera nos échanges de son expérience d’autres continents, ainsi que nos partenaires italiens pour une ouverture européenne.

L’inscription est gratuite[1] mais obligatoire. Vous trouverez le programme complet et toutes les informations nécessaires sur le site des Rencontres.

Notes

[1] Cette 3ème édition est organisée dans le cadre de l’action E-L.A.R.A avec le soutien de la Commission européenne (Initiative eLearning). (leer más…)
