Incredible wiki page about online surveys and forms. I highly recommend that we begin to have our students conduct surveys as part of authentic research. This is an excellent page about this topic. (The rest of the wiki is nice as well.)

Fascinating article about cross-disciplinary collaboration. This is becoming something that is possible through new means of using the Internet.

  • aimed at getting students and professors from different disciplines to collaborate in studying the environmental ramifications of production and consumption.

Open source now has a new meaning -- the traditional term has meant "open source software" but now, increasingly it is meaning "open source information" -- as US spy agencies are talking about the use of more open source information, or information taken from openly available and free sources on the Internet.

As we teach new terminology and how to understand the words that make our world meaningful, it is increasingly important to teach students to watch and understand the evolution of language. This is an excellent case study.

This is also an important term and article to be reviewed by students involved in the Horizon project that are analyzing government trends and our changing world.

  • Now, however, the President's Daily Brief and other crucial intelligence reports often rely less on secrets from risky espionage missions than on material that's available to just about anyone.
  • Such material is known as "open-source intelligence" or, in the acronym-laden parlance of the 16 federal agencies that make up the U.S. intelligence community, OSINT. The explosion of information available via the Internet and other public sources has pushed the collection and analysis of that material to the top of the official priority list in the spy world, intelligence officials say.
  • Federal commissions repeatedly have criticized the intelligence community for not moving more quickly and aggressively to exploit open-source information.

This is a very honest, open discussion between educators about why diigo or delicious -- I think the fact we can have this conversation within diigo at all says a lot for the usefulness of the tool. Diigo is an emerging tool for social bookmarking and collective intelligence.

    This morning I came here before I went to twitter. This seems to be the place to be right now. Still not sure of all the groupings, taggings, etc. Reading what everyone writes and hoping to get it soon
  • Will play on Sunday with Karen McMillan and Alice Barr. Anyone else want to join? Anyone want to teach?

    I'll join in the fun if you'll have me. Let me know time when you know.

This incredible chart says it all about the importance of wiki collaboration. This should also be a message to bloated bureaucracies looking to squeeze that last bit of efficiency out of already overworked staff. This is an important chart for horizon project students to include, I believe.
