The week-long program, led by a faculty of senior professionals with extensive experience in managing and leading IT-related organizations within higher education, has limited enrollment, resulting in a learning environment that is highly interactive and personalized.
The Annenberg Public Policy Center at the University of Pennsylvania invites you to join the best minds from a variety of fields to explore the effects of digital links on people’s ability to understand and care about their larger society.
Most internet users know hyperlinks as highlighted words on a web page that take them to certain other sites. But hyperlinks today are quite complex forms of instant connection—for example, tags, API mashups, and RSS feeds. Moreover, media convergence has led to increased instant linking among desktop computers, cell phones, PDAs, MP3 players, digital video recorders, and even billboards.
This brand-new, all-online event aims to bring together in a single Web space many of the leading players who are transforming academe with their use of the new tools of the Social Web.
All presentations will be made available on the event website at no charge to participants (with the exception of the live, web/audio CASE Online Speaker Series events).
Create digital maps that display a wide range of cultural material by using place and time as a common element.
ECAI technical infrastructure illustrates the vision of sharing distributed data and using time enabled mapping tools.
GIS technology is proving itself to be a valuable tool for organizing data for both the public and private sectors -- for municipal infrastructure maintenance and record-keeping, regional planning, real estate, land use, and tourism. At the same time, scholars are using the technology in disciplines that embrace the humanities, the social sciences, the physical sciences, and medicine.
Now, PACSCL invites current and potential GIS users to gather to think about new uses for a geographic based resource, new users from a range of disciplines, and new ranges of contributors and contributions. The purpose of this symposium is to focus less on the "how" of building a GIS and more on the "why." We will concentrate on finding ways that data from all of these sectors -- when organized with a sense of place and time -- can offer new insights into connections across these disciplines.
Panel discussions in the mornings will be followed by facilitated small group discussions and information sharing in the afternoons. Participants will be grouped according to potential GIS uses (history, social sciences, city/regional planning, human services, public health, etc.) and users (professional affinity groups) for the small group discussions. PACSCL's objectives in hosting this event are to foster increased cooperation among a widened range of current and potential GIS users and to give participants the opportunity to consider issues of how best to work together in the presence of a lively and informed group of colleagues. The results of this symposium will be used to further shape the Greater Philadelphia GeoHistory Network.
Wierd. When I click on the link to penntext screen from Penntags, it looks like we don't have te article online fulltext, but the screen I tagged provided a link to the ACM journal that has it. We do have the fulltext. Hmm. A little troubling.
Apparently, there's something in here about video games teaching spatial literacy. Reccomended by David Seaman from DLF.
