Content Used to be King: The Semantic Web in Education

9,070

Published on

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?

  5. 5. 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.

  30. 30. 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!
  31. 31. Semantic web Embedding semantical annotations into the data. To recognize people, places, events, companies, products, movies, etc.
  32. 32. Semantic web Resource Description Framework Understand the relationships between things
  33. 33. 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.
  34. 34. 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.
  35. 35. 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.
  36. 36. 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.
  37. 37. 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.
