Telecentros: un nuevo modelo de apropiación social de TICs -Choike

http://www.choike.org/nuevo/informes/3017.html
Durante las últimas décadas se ha registrado un aumento exponencial en la creación y desarrollo de nuevas tecnologías, especialmente las referidas a la información y comunicación. Sin embargo, la configuración mundial actual de disponibilidad de estas tecnologías evidencia una continuidad con las distribuciones desiguales de poder y riqueza, de modo que la llamada "brecha digital" emerge como subdimensión de la brecha económica entre países más y menos desarrollados. Estas inequidades también se registran al interior de las sociedades, especialmente en aquellas más pobres, donde los sectores de mayor nivel socioeconómico son los que concentran el acceso y la propiedad de las nuevas tecnologías.

GUS - Global University Project - Finnland

http://www.friends-partners.org/GLOSAS/Global_University/GU/Page/GlobalU1.htm
In this chapter, we describe the development of a global electronic university consortium to meet the challenge of global education in the twenty-first century by bringing together all kinds of higher education in- stitutions, governmental and non-governmental, business, and private, to exchange lectures and courses from country to country. We begin with a brief account of the steps taken over the past dozen years to pave the way for such an enterprise. Then we describe measures already being implemented to set in motion the first concrete phase: establishment of a Global/Pacific (electronic) University (GPU) Consortium. Questions of membership and organizational structure are discussed in light of GPU's intention to transcend cultural barriers, encouraging full participation from all levels of a global society. Finally it presents a specific agenda for the GPU in the upcoming year, and activities and initiatives planned for the near future.

First International Conference on Information and Communication Technologies and Development (ICTD2006)
May 25-26, 2006, Berkeley, California, U.S.A. http://sims.berkeley.edu/ictd2006

The past decade has witnessed an explosion in projects that apply information and communication technologies (ICT) to support socio-economic development. Every sector is involved ­ governments, academia, small start-ups, large corporations, inter-governmental organizations, and non-profits and non-governmental organizations. In spite of the
tremendous energy and resources behind these projects, scientifically sound research in this space is just beginning to emerge. What is the actual impact of ICT projects? What novel technology is required to meet development needs? What methodologies lead to success or failure of a project?

Dutch Academics Declare Research Free-For-All Posted by samzenpus on Thursday May 12, @05:46AM

houghi writes "The register reports how the Dutch open up their research to the rest of the world. It goes on to tell that commercial scientific publishers such as Elsevier Science are not happy with it. Will other countries and universities follow, or will they stick to the idea that knowledge is a commodity?"

"No início, tínhamos receio de que os telecentros abririam um mundo tão novo para essas comunidades que poderia absorver – ou sufocar – toda a cultura tradicional desses povos. Na prática, percebemos que o mundo novo se abriu, mas em vez de enfraquecer os conhecimentos tradicionais, aconteceu o contrário: os comunitários, ao se depararem na Internet com este novo mundo, tão diferente, conseguiram identificar melhor quem são eles e agora querem montar os sites comunitários para apresentarem a realidade deles para o mundo".

EXTRACT FROM THE PREFACE
of the Global Information Technology Report 2004-2005
by Professor Klaus Schwab

The global economy is being changed in profound ways by the onward march of science and technology.

Technological change has, of course, always been a central engine of economic growth, but what is significant about the past decade is the acceleration in the pace of change and, as more and more countries have made efforts to improve their macroeconomic and policy environments, technology and technological innovation appear to have entered a “golden age”, a time when they are emerging as the key drivers of growth and development.

Journal of Sysemics, Cybernetics and Informatics

http://www.iiisci.org/Journal/SCI/Home.asp?var=
As it was emphasized in the editorial of the first issue, the main purpose of the Journal is to collaborate in the systemization of knowledge and experience generated in the areas of Systemics, Cybernetics (communication and control) and Informatics. This systemization process necessarily implies a progressive increase and enlargement of the relatedness among the associated areas, as well as among their respective disciplines. So, improvement in interdisciplinary communication would provide a very good support for the sought systemization process. This is one of the main objectives of the Journal we are launching with this first issue, and our editorial policy will be directed by it...

Netzwissenschaft - Deutschland

http://www.netzwissenschaft.de/
netzwissenschaft.de erschließt die infrastruktur einzelwissenschaftlicher forschungen zum internet und gibt dadurch wissenschaft und öffentlichkeit einen überblick über die internetforschung im ganzen. indem netzwissenschaft streng vom netz her denkt, kann sie gegenüber den nicht am netz gewonnenen, nun aber auf das netz übertragenen einzelwissenschaftlichen methodologien eine kritische korrekturfunktion übernehmen. will sie sich selbst als wissenschaft professionalisieren, darf sie sich nicht auf technische netze beschränken, sondern muß als wissenschaft der netze alle formen des netzwissens zu ihrem gegenstand machen. netzwissenschaft wäre dann neben reflexionswissenschaft und anwendungswissenschaft der dritte pfeiler des wissenschaftssystems.

Negroponte (MediaLab-MIT) PC para el 3er. Mundo

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/4243733.stm

[1]Nicholas Negroponte, fundador del [2]Media Lab del MIT, está diseñando un ordenador portátil que contaría con las funciones y características esenciales y se vendería a menos de 100 dólares. En su opinión, un ordenador de este tipo en cada casa o en manos de cada niño en países subdesarrollados sería una herramienta revolucionaria para la educación y el desarrollo de toda la comunidad.
Este portátil utilizaría una memoria flash de 1 GB en lugar de disco duro y dispondría de conectividad sin hilos (wifi). Todos los compomentes están pensados para reducir costes y consumo energético. La batería podría cargarse con una manivela. El aspecto más problemático parece ser la pantalla, que debería estar por debajo de los 30 dólares. Una de las opciones más prometedoras es la tecnología de tinta electrónica [3]E - Ink, que sólo consume electricidad cuando cambia la imagen. En cuanto al software, lógicamente se utilizaría el sistema operativo Linux.

First International Congress: E-Learning and social inclusion - Barcelona 2004

http://www.el4ei.net/congress/
Our transition from an industrial society towards an informational one has clearly modified a series of social practices. Specific needs for the labour market, new forms of democratic participation, or access to education and culture are only three examples of how work, politics and education are changing due to the influence of ICT.
These new possibilities also strengthen certain exclusion mechanisms, while creating new ones. This is why the term “e-inclusion” appeared, to describe all those practices which try to reduce digital divide and assure that information society, besides being economically profitable, includes the values of justice, equality and solidarity.
