"This paper introduces the notion of the education graph, a conceptual representation of the resources and interconnections at the heart of the learning process. We present our latest work on the Talis Aspire family of products that, through the use of Linked Data principles and technologies, enables the assembly and application of a rich education graph based on learning resources used in tens of UK universities. Techniques for entity extraction and reconciliation across data sources are presented, in addition to descriptions of recommendation generation from portions of this education graph".

How the iPhone Could Reboot Education | Gadget Lab |

Experiencia piloto en la que se les ha proporcionado iPhone a los estudiantes de una universidad privada con programas para que los usen durante las clases. Consiguen que obtengan la información en tiempo real, e integran el uso de estos dispositivos permanentemente conectados a internet en las clases.

Consiguen atraer la atención de los alumnos con información en tiempo real, según los autores no malgastan esfuerzos en libros de texto que están obsoletos en cuanto salen de la imprenta.

How do you educate a generation of students eternally distracted by the internet, cellphones and video games? Easy. You enable them by handing out free iPhones.

The initiative’s goal was to explore how the always-connected iPhone might revolutionize the classroom experience with a dash of digital interactivity. Think web apps to turn in homework, look up campus maps, watch lecture podcasts and check class schedules and grades. For classroom participation, there’s even polling software for Abilene students to digitally raise their hand.

The verdict? It’s working quite well. 2,100 Abilene students, or 48 percent of the population, are now equipped with a free iPhone. Fully 97 percent of the faculty population has iPhones, too. The iPhone is aiding Abilene in giving students the information they need — when they want it, wherever they want it, said Bill Rankin, a professor of medieval studies who helped plan the initiative.

“It’s kind of the TiVoing of education,” Rankin said in a phone interview. “I watch it when I need it and in ways that I need it. And that makes a huge difference.”


The traditional classroom, where an instructor assigns a textbook, is heading toward obsolescence. Why listen to a single source talk about a printed textbook that will inevitably be outdated in a few years? That setting seems stale and hopelessly limited when pitted against the internet, which opens a portal to a live stream of information provided by billions of minds.
