Using Blogs for Conferences: Edublogger Experience

Steli Efti yesterday patronize the Edublogger Event 2007 which in all standards was a success. Someone while commenting in a fellow blog said, we don't need to dress up anymore, we have the chance to attend conferences from the commodity of your home and your computer.

Blogs can also be used for workshops. Even when we will see a hard fight for the Internet Neutrality we will keep moving forward in the educational matters.

I want to thank a old friend not because age (He still so young). Sumesh has made some tweaks for our search box and look pretty and much professional. Thanks again Sumesh not only for the public honor but for the mention. Much power to you as Steli likes to motto.

Network Neutrality: Save the Internet!

Between the Cyberbullers and the Networked Education

I couldn't post yesterday but I am still on time to endorse the Stop Ciberbullying Day especially after the widely debated Kathy Sierra's case. "...If we see cruelty or wrong that we have the power to stop, and do nothing, we make ourselves sharers in the guilt.” cites Stephanie Sandifer. I have a 10 years boy that even in his rides to school every morning had experienced the bullying, now what might happened after they get home and reach their computers? Their parents are hard workers and they rely very little on parents but friends (from school, what a coincidence). Who's behind to check out the behaviour of these kids or teens? Well, keep reading. Andy Carvin writes his own history.

The Edublogger Event07 is in progress and we will be talking about socialnetworking and its impact on Education. You can argue that today we experience a social change, the conversation among bloggers carries out knowledge and experiences. We all are moving forward thanks to the process of learning not in the traditional school but throughout networks.

Some educators are talking about dichotomies and pairs in order to explain the phenomena lying in education: there are interesting concepts about anti-teaching. Change Agency establishes, No Learning=No Teaching , in that order. And others begun to talk about pairs: productivity vs. creativity.

Do you have a different way to explain all this stuff? We would like to know your opinions.

Why We All Making Websites?

This is a very interesting question brought by J D Wilbur. Every time we need to start a project the very first thing we think up front is a website. And then the author keeps on "I realized that I have a strong predilection for websites because I love the web, and I know what I'm doing when it comes to sites. But that doesn't mean a site is always the right form for every project. It prompted me to reconsider two things: the benefit of Sophie books, and the position of print in light of the network, and what transformations we can make to the printed page."

This last transcript ed part can be associated with the issue about traditionalist journalism and online journalism, many even have come to the conclusion that in short time we won't have any more print editions for very well positioned newspapers. Can this benefit the new tendency and habit of new consumers such as Mobile Play. Here in the U.S almost everything goes mobile, even youtube is starting a new design only for smart phones.

If you looking to move up in the social pyramid then is time you start earning an MBA. What does mean? It means, the Online MBA Degree Programs are a Smart Education Investment. Why? The answer is here but remember it is a conclusion after research that shows those involved in a MBA Program had received job offers with an average annual salary of $92,360 or may give you leverage in achieving a better balance between work (read: fewer hours working) and life outside work.

I like videos and love Internet. So maybe you would like to know those winners of YouTube Awards. Here we go.

Blogging Might Be Dangerous Nowadays

Wesley Fryer posts about  the cyberbulling and death threats to Kathy Sierra. Every blogger deserves respect and needs to be protected for Free Speech. What is happening is really scary and again honest, descent and professional bloggers should write about this issue.

Fryer writes: "What a sad thing it is to see digital tools used to incite fear and bludgeon the psyche of any human being. When that person is someone we know, even if our “knowing” is at an intellectual level due to the virtual window blogs provide into the mind and thinking of that person, our feeling of sadness can be even even more acute."

Scoble also posts about the topic and says: "It’s this culture of attacking women that has especially got to stop. I really don’t care if you attack me. I take those attacks in stride. But, whenever I post a video of a female technologist there invariably are snide remarks about body parts and other things that simply wouldn’t happen if the interviewee were a man."

What do you have to say?

Did you know? -Karl Fisch

Thanks to W. Richardson I am trying to root this video where Karl Fish works to demonstrate some facts and as Weblogg-ed holds it has been seen more 2 million times and that this is only a 'rough estimate'. More on this video is in I want to believe it. Enjoy!

Dead: Both Newspapers and American Health Care

Scoble again put his finger on traditional media and no surprise, says his predictions remains true: Newspapers are dead if they don't see besides of print world (online world). Good exmaple of what's going on in journalism is GVO, that just grew millions of readers and now you can read it more than one language.

Another interesting post is written by Martin Varsavsky who makes a case on health care and goes in detail to compare the french in front of American services. He points out: "Americans spend the most in the world on medicine but live much shorter lives than most in the developed world. They rank 48th in the world in life expectancy. France is 16th."
