The Blockchain Revolution and Higher Education

OLDaily - 21 Marzo, 2017 - 14:57

Don Tapscott, Alex Tapscott, EDUCAUSE Review, Mar 21, 2017

This is an overview article of the potential of the blockchain in higher education. We've covered the  blockchain in OLDaily before. In a nutshell: a transaction (contract, credential, whatever) is encrypted in a block, and the block is added to a chain of encryptions. So the transaction is public and verifiable, but secret and secure. It's tempting to imagine a network of competencies, badges and blockchains, as  Doug Belshaw did last year, but the Tapscitt version is a lot more conservative: "a student receives a custom learning experience from a dozen institutions, while the blockchain serves to track the student’ s path and progress."

A Change Sprint – workshopping new ideas in a hurry

OLDaily - 21 Marzo, 2017 - 02:52

Dave Cormier, Dave's Educational Blog, Mar 20, 2017

There are two interesting things in this post. The first is the description of the 'change sprint' that is the focus of the post as a whole. It's a method for getting input from other people when you can't just open up ideas to the whole internet. The second is the outcome from one of the change sprints, the 'learning ecosystem participant model', which ranges between open and directed action, and working along vs. working with others. P.S. he also notes that "calls to Twitter for participation weren’ t quite doing the same thing they used to." I wonder whether people are following Twitter very much these days (other than those focused on politics).

Google Scholar is a serious alternative to Web of Science

OLDaily - 21 Marzo, 2017 - 02:52

Anne-Wil Harzing, LSE Impact Blog, Mar 20, 2017

I agree with this assessment. "Commercial databases such as ISI and Scopus have  systematic  errors as they do not include many journals in the social sciences and humanities, nor have good coverage of conferences proceedings, books or book chapters." They are, in a word, biased toward traditional scientific publications (which is also where they make their money). It makes a difference to me.  According to Scopus my  h-index id 5.  According to Google Scholar my h-index is 26. That's a pretty large variance in the estimation of my academic impact. Via gsiemens.

Lessons from Chicago: How to Hook Up Every Teen with a Tech Job

OLDaily - 21 Marzo, 2017 - 02:52

Jen Curtis, EdSurge, Mar 20, 2017

A long time ago  I offered my own  version of 'School 2.0' in which placement in the community was a core concept (that's it, pictured in the image). The current article describes an instantiation of that sort of vision. "The entire senior class was placed in full-time  tech internships throughout the city, acquiring job skills and building their professional networks instead of slogging through the traditional spring semester." Now the implementation was not without its issues: the staff had to scramble to find 74 placements, the high school students were sometimes unprofessional, and close supervision was required. “ We’ d rather students learn those lesson now rather than after investing 50K when the stakes are much higher.” Related:  Every space is a learning space.
