Primary Education 2.0 | Ensino Básico 2.0

"What's your Twitter again?"

"What's your Twitter again?"

According to today’s The Guardian, there is a  curriculum proposal for the primary school in Britain that wants to make children “familiar with blogging, podcasts, Wikipedia and Twitter as sources of information and forms of communication.”

Should this be surprising? Not at all. E-skills are basic skills nowadays, and the kids have to learn them. But i can hear the row starting already…

De acordo com o The Guardian de hoje, há uma proposta para o programa curricular do ensino básico britânico que quer familiarizar as crianças com “blogs, podcasts, Wikipedia e Twitter, como fontes de informação e meios de comunicação.”

Devia isto ser surpreendente? De todo. Este tipo de conhecimentos são básicos hoje em dia, e os miúdos têm de aprendê-los. Mas já consigo ouvir a discussão a aumentar de volume…

Children will no longer have to study the Victorians or the second world war under proposals to overhaul the primary school curriculum, the Guardian has learned.

However, the draft plans will require children to master Twitter and Wikipedia and give teachers far more freedom to decide what youngsters should be concentrating on in classes.

The proposed curriculum, which would mark the biggest change to primary schooling in a decade, strips away hundreds of specifications about the scientific, geographical and historical knowledge pupils must accumulate before they are 11 to allow schools greater flexibility in what they teach.

Por uma Ecologia Informativa | For an Information Ecology

//www.internetactu.net/wp-content/uploads/2008/04/twhirl-mania.png" não pode ser mostrada, porque contém erros.

Quantas aplicações estão a usar neste exacto momento? Quantos serviços de comunicação online estão a dizer que têm uma mensagem nova no vosso ecrã? Quanto tempo perdem na net? Quanto desse tempo é realmente produtivo? Estes são alguns dos problemas levantados neste fantástico texto que alguém devia traduzir (não olhem para mim, o meu francês não é assim tão bom).

Como poderemos melhorar o nosso ambiente informático e a qualidade do tempo que passamos nele?

How many applications are you using right now? How many online communication services are notifying you on your screen about a new message? How much time do you spend on the web? How much of that time is really productive? These are some of the issues raised in this fantastic text that someone should translate (don’t look at me, my french is not that good).

How can we improve our digital environment and the time we spend in it?

Pour une écologie informationnelle

On pourrait faire le tour des technologies que nous utilisons chaque jour et voir, pour chacune, combien elles sont restées frustes. Combien les liens entre elles sont demeurés inexistants. Entraînés dans l’innovation constante, nous semblons oublier de rendre plus aisément exploitables les innovations passées, y compris les plus utilisées. Bien sûr, de nouveaux outils font leur apparition, ajoutent des couches supplémentaires d’utilisation, permettent des traitements inédits. Mais ils s’ajoutent à la surcharge informationnelle, ils croissent au-delà des capacités cognitives d’un internaute moyen, c’est-à-dire d’une personne qui ne passe pas toute la journée en ligne. Oui, les vrais gens n’ont pas le temps pour utiliser les médias sociaux, clame avec raison Sarah Perez du ReadWriteWeb. “Selon le temps qu’on est capable de passer, on joue un rôle différent sur le réseau”, explique Nina Simon, à l’origine de cette réflexion, distinguant les participants (qui passent 1 à 5 heures par semaine sur les sites sociaux), des fournisseurs de contenus (5 à 10 heures), aux animateurs de communautés (10 à 20 heures). A croire que nous sommes capables d’inventer des outils si consommateurs de temps, que seul le temps passé sera bientôt capable de distinguer les utilisateurs les uns des autres.
