Il fleurit actuellement sur les boutonnières mais connaissez-vous l’origine du Bleuet?

https://www.le-smv.fr/wp-content/themes/svm/img/smv.png Le Bleuet a de multiples significations :
- « Bleuets » est le surnom donné par les poilus aux jeunes recrues fraichement arrivées sur les champs de bataille avec l’uniforme bleu horizon.
- Le bleuet est une des rares fleurs, avec le coquelicot que les anglais arborent sur leurs tenues, à continuer de pousser sur les champs de batailles ravagés par les obus.
- Sa couleur rappelle le drapeau tricolore. Plus...

Ai Weiwei is Living in Our Future

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Ai Weiwei is Living in Our Future
Hans de Zwart, Medium, 2015/01/01
So what is life like in the surveillance state? Ask artist Ai Weiwei. He lives under constant observation courtesy of the Chinese government. This article describes his efforts to understand and test the limits of constant observation, including the impact it has on the observers (ware in many ways less free than he is). Weiwei's present is our future. More...

SCORM and Tin Can API: The difference between DVDs and Netflix

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. SCORM and Tin Can API: The difference between DVDs and Netflix
Melanie Moffett, eLearning Industry, 2014/11/24
I'd like to think that we can go a bit beyond Nedtflix, but I appreciate the analogy behind this post comparing SCORM and xAPI. SCORM - the Sharable Content Object Reference Model, was designed as a way for published products, like courseware, to report back to a host system, like a learning management system (LMS). More...

Affiliation and Ignite

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Affiliation and Ignite
Chris Kennedy, Culture of Yes, 2014/11/28
This is a pretty key statement, I think: "Our profession will not be mandated into meeting the needs of modern learners but the power of networks and new thinking around affiliation can help diffuse the work." It is the way we work as individuals, and work with learners as individuals, that will define the new structures of learning. More...

Professors on food stamps: The shocking true story of academia in 2014

Matt Saccaro, Salon, 2014/09/25
I don't know what's so shocking about this. Adjunct and sessional instructors have been abysmally underpaid since the days in the 1990s when I was caught up in that racket. More...

Flipping Grade 4 and Flipping Bloom's Taxonomy Triangle

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Flipping Grade 4 and Flipping Bloom's Taxonomy Triangle
Maggie Hos-McGrane, Tech Transformation, 2014/09/15
I'm no fan of taxonomies but I'm a fan of the thinking behind this post. By 'flipping' Bloom's taxonomy, we get an approach to education that does not begin with remembering, it ends with remembering. And (I would add) the objective of such an education isn't remembering at all (and certainly not remembering some sort of core content); that's an outcome, but it isn't what we're striving for, necessarily. More...

Community Source Is Dead

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Community Source Is Dead
Michael Feldstein, e-Literate, 2014/09/02

I've never been a proponent of what is sometimes called 'community source' (but which is really a closed federation posturing as though it were some sort of open source). More...

Personal Health Data: It’s Amazing Potential and Privacy Perils

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Personal Health Data: It’s Amazing Potential and Privacy Perils
Beth Kanter, Beth's Blog, 2014/09/10
It's hard to underestimate the potential to improve both health and learning through the analysis of personal data. I think of my own experience with Runkeeper to track my cycling. More...
