Paradygmat 2.0 – a blogging duet

April 26th, 2010 by Graham Attwell

The Pontydysgu Polish language Paradygmat blog has undergone a facelift. Two young researchers – Ilona Buchem and Joanna Wild have launched Paradygmat 2.0. Ilona and Joanna got to know each other through the first incarnation of Paradygmat! Joanna commented on Ilona’s blogposts and they soon discovered that there is much they have in common. Ilona works as a researcher in Berlin (research project Mediencommunity 2.0)  in the area of e-learning 2.0 and learning with social media in online communities. She is interested in how Web 2.0 tools can be used to enable more learner-driven, personalized, socially connected, work embedded and sustainable learning. Joanna works at the Centre for Social Innovation – ZSI in Vienna. Her scientific focus is on pedagogical issues of technology-enhanced learning for education and training, especially on aspects related to systematic planning for learning, use of Personal Learning Environments in formal and informal learning settings, and support planning for the acquisition of rich professional competences and literacies including abilities for self-regulation, collaboration, and networked learning.

Their collaboration is a good example of how Social Media can bring people together! Ilona & Joanna have started their first series of blogposts in Polish with the topic of Personal Learning Environments. They have introduced this topic with definitions of theories and best practice discussions about applications in education and experiment with new formats of blogging in duet, such as interviews, dialogs and collaborative writing. They then want to go on and discover other interesting issues about how Social Media changes education. Their goal is to connect with the Polish-speaking research community and sparkle some innovative ideas about the future of education.

    Innovation is male dominated?

    Times Higher Education reports that in the UK only one in 10 university spin-out companies has a female founder, analysis suggests. And these companies are much less likely to attract investment too, raising concerns that innovation is becoming too male-dominated.


    Open Educational Resources

    BYU researcher John Hilton has published a new study on OER, student efficacy, and user perceptions – a synthesis of research published between 2015 and 2018. Looking at sixteen efficacy and twenty perception studies involving over 120,000 students or faculty, the study’s results suggest that students achieve the same or better learning outcomes when using OER while saving a significant amount of money, and that the majority of faculty and students who’ve used OER had a positive experience and would do so again.


    Digital Literacy

    A National Survey fin Wales in 2017-18 showed that 15% of adults (aged 16 and over) in Wales do not regularly use the internet. However, this figure is much higher (26%) amongst people with a limiting long-standing illness, disability or infirmity.

    A new Welsh Government programme has been launched which will work with organisations across Wales, in order to help people increase their confidence using digital technology, with the aim of helping them improve and manage their health and well-being.

    Digital Communities Wales: Digital Confidence, Health and Well-being, follows on from the initial Digital Communities Wales (DCW) programme which enabled 62,500 people to reap the benefits of going online in the last two years.

    Zero Hours Contracts

    Figures from the UK Higher Education Statistics Agency show that in total almost 11,500 people – both academics and support staff – working in universities on a standard basis were on a zero-hours contract in 2017-18, out of a total staff head count of about 430,000, reports the Times Higher Education.  Zero-hours contract means the employer is not obliged to provide any minimum working hours

    Separate figures that only look at the number of people who are employed on “atypical” academic contracts (such as people working on projects) show that 23 per cent of them, or just over 16,000, had a zero-hours contract.
