Fly the kite: Comments of Eva’s Learning Task

leave a comment »

We have just done one task from the Eva’s learning project.

Read a short text and think one title. The text is really vague, because you don’t know what is talking about!!

But you have one video in internet, and watching this video you could know what it is about. At the first time I felt lost, what is talking about?? Also I decided use a translation, I really wanna know all the meanings…but I didn’t understand something new, so I realised that could be the option of the video was my solution, and actually it is the solution.

So it has been very helpul tool to understand the subject. And I am surprised of  how the context, not only the text himself, is another way to communication. Very clear example.

Also is possible take out some ideas related to the learning proccess, how the multimedia can expand the learning and is a powerful tool. Using multimedia channels, for comunicate a piece of information.

It is like the life process. You grow up in an environment that give you many ways to learn, in an interconnected proccess where is impossible put walls.

Comment to Andra’s Presentation

Web 3.0,

I like very much some of the ideas from Andras’ presentation.

Read-Write-Execute, is the first time that I have realise that point of view to describe the Web 3.0, and is so right!

 First time, on the 90’s.  You could only read the pages and if you were very interested do one or write something in the visit’s book.

Read and Write. I remenber the first website that I did. Was on 1998, I think, and my brother of 13 years old help me. I did it using html code, very very boring, and some guides from internet and uploading in a free space that use my page to put advertisements. That website worked, now you could see it because is still working. Later write became easy and easy with the blogs. With the social network I feel integrated in my community of friends, and also academic.

Read, Write and Execute.  Use new portals, 3D portals!! wooww the people could look at me in real time!!

What’s new? LATINA lesson reflection

The most interesting:
the three authors, and their books, that we have been looking and commenting.

The long tail, by Chris Anderson.


Interesting idea, and possible to apply at the Digital Libraries, how the WWW permit offers more items to the costumers, or user, in a cheap way. For example making available rare books in Amazon, that don’t have many users everyone, but all of them are a good market.

The Search,  by John Battelle.

The Information are now in Internet, and the key is the search, on Google obviously. Another interesting point for the DL.

and Here comes everybody, by Clay Shirky.

How the social networking make possible a new way to meet people, work and develop our lifes.

New Spanish version of Librarians in Troubles

with one comment


today I´m opening a spanish version of this blog. The idea is provide a different point of view introducing information from the spanish resources and also make avaible the english posts of “Librarians in Troubles” for more people.

I have to say that I´m sure that many times the information in the two websites are going to be different, but I wanna try to provide in both blogs the respective pages. I know that it is going to be more work but I hope is a good way to do an integration.

The links is

Bibliotecarios en Apuros

Also is possible access to the Spanishversion by the page that appear in the right-up side.
