There was a time when books, newspapers, magazines, and journals were the primary sources of content and information. You had to enjoy slow reading of (limited) information sources to gain a knowledge base that matched a particular curriculum outline.

This was when content was king and the teacher was the sage on the stage. Now communication is the new curriculum and network connections drive deep learning and knowledge creation. The era of collaborating, communicating, and integrating resources flexibly and online is here to stay. Massive change has pushed us into a 21st century information maze. What does the 21st century web offer us? What is the relevance of linked data and semantic search and how might this affect our information seeking, and learning/teaching strategies?

    • Content Used to be King Judy O’Connell ACEC 2010
    • Shrinking the world
    • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wzRziK-kZtQ How quaint!
    • Horizon Project K-12
    • On the Horizon Technology continues to profoundly a ect the way we work, collaborate, communicate, and succeed. Horizon Report 2010 K-12 Edition Collaborative environments can be complete, o -the-shelf packages or collections of do-it yourself tools, depending on the level of comfort of the teachers and support personnel and the needs of the students using the systems. Whatever tools are chosen, collaborative environments give students tremendous opportunities to interact with peers and mentors, experience other world views, and model the kinds of work patterns that take place in an increasing number of professions. Cloud computing has transformed the way we think about computing and communication, data storage and access, and collaborative work. Cloud-based applications and services are available to many school students today, and more schools are employing cloud computing solutions all the time. What still remains to be developed is the capacity for the cloud to help students engage in real research and participate in global learning communities.
    • They do not walk alone.....
    • Increasing interaction
    • Immersed in a “Web 2.0” world
    • People started to interact in social networks
    • People started to contribute in wikis People started to share photos and videos People started to use tags and RSS http://flickrvision.com/
    • This is the Read Write Web
    • Our problem?
    • We have the largest source of information ever http://toolsforsearch.wikispaces.com/
    • http://quinturakids.com/
    • http://www.google.com http://www.google.com.au/search?q=jaguar&hl=en&tbo=1&output=search&tbs=ww: 1&ei=rzm3S8GhD5CisgOInoDpDA&sa=X&oi=tool&resnum=2&ct=tlink&ved=0CCgQpwU#q=jaguar+cat&hl=en&sa=X&tbs=ww:1&tbo=1&fp=1

    • Rich (vertical) content • Amazon experience! • Blogs and web • Social bookmarking • Wikis • Image and Videos • Places & events • Music, books, and more.....
    • Jaguar Meaning Linked Data Jaguar Interoperability
    • Beyond keyword search The Intelligent Web Web 4.0 Productivity of Search 2020 - 2030 Reasoning The Semantic Web Web 3.0 Semantic Search 2010 - 2020 The Social Web Natural language search The World Wide Web Web2010 2000 - 2.0 Tagging Web2000 1990 - 1.0 Keyword search The Desktop Directories PC Era 1980 - 1990 Files & Folders Databases By Radar Networks http://www.slideshare.net/adityatuli/explaining-the-semantic-web Amount of data
    • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=off08As3siM The Future Internet: Service Web 3.0
    • Semantic web Web 3.0 revolutionizing knowledge discovery
    • Semantic web ?
    • Semantic web mix and match parts
    • Semantic web :machine readable data: i.e. the stuff a computer can get at when it goes to a site. Folksonomy by itself is not Web 3.0!
    • Semantic web Embedding semantical annotations into the data. To recognize people, places, events, companies, products, movies, etc.
    • Semantic web Resource Description Framework Understand the relationships between things
    • Semantic web Organisations are publishing their data in semantic Web formats. This information can be directly and precisely linked together over the Web itself. Instead of having to go through proprietary software APIs and query listening services, thedata and data models are fully accessible from the Web itself.
    • Semantic web The BBC Search Team is building on this newly-available linked data, by creating pan-BBC aggregations of content Each Search+ page shows the best content on its particular topic from around bbc.co.uk, and sometimes selected content from outside the BBC. The RDF representations of these web identifiers allow developers to use BBC data to build applications.
    • Semantic web Key benefits * Usability—Making a site around the things people care and think about. * User Experience— Having resources that can be visualised in new ways.
    • Semantic web Key benefits * User Journeys—Allowing users to make their own journeys across our content. On the BBC /nature, users can start making their own documentaries.
    • Semantic web Key benefits * One page per thing—Making resources part of the Web and therefore linkable and discoverable. * The web site is the API—One URI for both machines and web browsers. The web site can be used by third parties to create (mix and match) new new products.
    • Semantic web stop thinking websites and start thinking data understand the network effect content is [still] king ~ but only when it is open and free
    • If you love knowledge - set it free!
