Answer
What is the difference between creative writing and critical writing?
The primary difference between creative and critical writing is one of lo cus. “Creative writing” presumes the presence of something like a writer's studio, a setting more relaxed than the habitat of “critical writing,” which requires an office, a professional building, a lab, as it were.

Answer
La didattica superiore a Ddi (didattica Integrata a Distanza) prevede che le informazioni siano comunicate in modo da essere il meno impersonali possibile. Quindi il docente deve imparare a comunicare con gli studenti come se fosse in presenza, pur tenendo sempre presente che la distanza materiale può creare in chi ascolta l'idea di virtualità non pertinente. Allo stesso tempo sarebbe opportuno preparare prima gli studenti su tecniche che permettono loro di sentirsi coinvolti e in gruppo pur essendo separati gli uni dagli altri e dal docente. Insomma, bisogna creare uno spazio virtuale che però non venga percepito come tale.

Interesante pregunta, yo creo que la evolución cultural de los nativos digitales sera hacia el "open learning" o como se le llame en Español a la cultura establecida por la "Open University" hace muchos años en UK.
Falta que la descubran muchos estudiantes más o como deben llamarse ahora "estudiantes nativos digitales", eso creo.

Interesting question, I believe that the cultural evolution of digital natives will be towards "open learning" or whatever the culture established by the "Open University" many years ago in the UK is called in Spanish.
It remains for many more students to discover it, or as they should now be called "digital native students", I think.

I am doing a research on Twitter and would like to archive tweets over 6 to 10 months. is there any software that I would use to archive the tweets?
Relevant answer
Answer
Are you looking out for easy ways to download someone’s tweets or their entire Twitter archive?
While Twitter allows users to download the Twitter archive from their own accounts, you need to get it from third-party tools like Followersanalysis ( https://www.followersanalysis.com/download-someone-elses-twitter-archive ) if you need a Twitter archive from some other account.
It is a paid Twitter analytics tool that can help you download any public Twitter users’ tweets. It is an effective tool that not only helps you access the tweets but also helps in analyzing your Twitter followers. It is a feature-packed tool that can help perform a tweet analysis along with evaluating the quality of the followers of the targeted Twitter profile.

I'm brand new to social network analysis. I'm trying to identify meme creators in twitter. Is there a way to do this using data downloaded from twitter? 
Relevant answer
Answer
From data downloaded by the Twitter Streaming API, you can verify if the tweet is a retweet through the 'retweeted' field included in the json of the status (it is a boolean value), in which case the media may be included in the original tweet, which you can access by the 'retweeted_status' (the value of this field is a representation of the original tweet). However if the user has not directly retweeted  the media, but stored it locally and later tweeted it, it is not possible to ascertain the originality of the media.

The most important question are sources. For now, the sources are rather undefined
and incomplete. However, following further development of almetrics it is obvious that
the almetrics services are aware of it. Therefore, they have been establishing
cooperation with commercial databases such as Web of Science, Elsevier, Scopus and
many others. Every day through social media we follow development of almetrics,

Web 3.0 is the "Learning Web" in which database systems are used to capture information about specific consumers, and use it to develop stronger relationships between the website company and the individual consumer.
Web 3.0 is already used extensively in advertising to focus the message to individual consumers because the database knows the interests and preferences of the individual.  Outside of advertising, Web 3.0 can be used in a wide range of other contexts in which the company benefits from knowing the customer better.

what is characteristics of a good computer scientist?
I want to know who can I train myself as a computer scientist.
may you recommend whatever you think is useful?
thank you in advance.
Relevant answer
Answer
Hi Yasin
I would start by asking yourself the question, "Why do I want to train myself to be a good computer scientist?" The answer to this question will give you a lot of help in deciding how to proceed. If the answer is that I am really interested in the area and want to further my own knowledge, then that is fine, and you will be able to proceed doing just that at your own pace.
However, if you are considering learning how to become a computer scientist with a view to working in the field at a later date, then you need to take a slightly different approach. For a start, very few companies will be willing to take on a "self-taught" computer scientist. They want their staff to have some form of recognised qualification. Also, there will be an expectation that you will have some kind of good work experience behind you. Which presents you with a bit of a chicken and egg situation. This means you will have to attain some form of recognised formal qualification. There are a wide range of possibilities here. You can simply attend low level practical courses where you learn some technical skills, and you are awarded a certificate on successful completion of the course. Many of these are offered by professional training firms, and others can be offered by technical colleges. You could do an undergraduate university degree, a master's degree or even a PhD in computing science, but this would involve a serious commitment of both time and money. Obviously, the recognition is greater the further up the learning tree you travel, as can be the rewards.
Computing Science is one of the youngest disciplines, yet also happens to be a very wide ranging discipline indeed. Of course, it has its foundations in the mists of time, since much of what is done in the field today is enabled by past discoveries in a diverse range of disciplines, without which there would be no computing science today. But equally, it is a fast moving discipline, and change can occur with lighning speed, leading to new problems arising. Computing services are now used across business, government, education, and every other conceivable area, as well as for personal use. Computers are now used by every imaginable discipline, which means there is now a much greater focus on cross discipline collaboration. And, of course, there is the question of security to take into account. The benefits of using computing within society are indeed great, but bad actors have discovered how easy it can be to turn this great benefit for society to their own nefarious ends. This has now become a massive problem for society.
So, for my advice, I am going to assume you would want to obtain some formal qualification, and I will start with your question, what are the characteristics of a good computer scientist? I would suggest a keen interest in the field would be a great starting point. If you are interested in, and excited by, any discipline, you will generally always go further and faster than someone who is just going through the motions. You will require self-discipline, attention to detail, the ability to remember complex formulae. You will need to have an enquiring mind, and the ability to think through complex problems. You will need to be tenacious, and not be discouraged easily in the face of adversity. You will want to be able to think for yourself, and not be someone who must always be led by others. You will not be afraid to try new ideas, you will have self-belief in your own capabilities. You will need to be accurate in your work. You will need to learn to read a great deal of material, both efficiently and quickly. I would say these are core characteristics, attributes and capabilities which will put you in good stead on your journey to becoming a good computer scientist.
Even if you intend going down the formal training route through a university degree, you can start your journey off by first reading as much as you can about computing science. Try to find out about all the different branches of the discipline of computing science. Try to teach your self a computer language. Perhaps start with learing one of the oldest: the C programming language (still in use today) to see whether you have the aptitude for it. There are plenty of online tutorials, books and articles you can pick up for free to get you started. Learn how to use basic business office software tools. These are really useful things to do to get you prepared for undertaking a university degree. Try to produce something new every day, even if it is small. You will feel good about your progress and you will be learning regularly, which you will need to be able to do for a long time to come. Even if you end up with a PhD, you wil still need to keep on learing. In computing Science, nothing stays the same. Change is constant. If you start with the right attitude, you will enjoy your journey much more, you will be better prepared for learning, and you will be able to achieve the goal of becoming a good computer scientist.
Do bear in mind it won't be easy, it will take a lot of application and hard work over a considerable length of time, but it will be worth it in the end.
Good luck on your journey, and if you want any further advice, just ask.
Regards
Bob

Any ideas ?
Relevant answer
Answer
Dear Inayat,
First, I will situate this question within the UK state education system as I am not clear at which teaching position you are aiming.  There are very different practical elements and expectations on 'teacher' based on their organisation (nursery, primary, secondary, college, university). 
For example, in state schools, there is a much greater demand on marking and planning compared to university.  For example, as a secondary school teacher, my working life was teaching, marking, planning. This is similar for primary schools too.  If we take my wife, for example, she leaves home about 7am in the morning and returns about 6pm. By 730pm she is marking the students work so that she can plan her lessons for the next day and typically finishes about 11pm. My practical life at university focuses on other facets but can be equally as time demanding. 
There are many blogs on the internet which cover work-life balance (example attached). Also, within the Uk all teacher unions carry stress surveys which include work-life balance data (see attached). 
Hope this helps

Thank you
Relevant answer
Answer
Trying to answer your question based on what you wrote and the statistics rules. if you measured your variable 3 or more times, then yes you need to use Repeated measure ANOVA. You also asking if you can do pre-post test. this depend on the number of times you had the measure if it is only 2 times with 2 different scales, then this is the appropriate one. otherwise, the logic behind using repeated measure over time will be cancelled. 
If for example you had 3 times of measurement, then you will used pre test -post test 3 times [between the 1st and 2nd; 1st and 3rd; and, 2nd and 3rd] this will lead to inflation in alpha, which means type I error in research.

I am undertaking the effects of using Web 2.0 technologies in the classroom and whether this will have an impact on student's learning. In order to facilitate this, I have tested the students prior to the inclusion of the web 2.0 technologies and I have also tested them after making them aware of it in the hope that I can compare these two sets of information. I have also carried out a survey before the study and after to see if their perception of the course has altered.
I I feel that the survey should be analysed using a Wilcoxon test and the pre-test/post-test results that are mentioned above should be analysed using a paired t test.
I was wondering if someone could help me to understand what statistical method I should employ for the tests and what statistical method I should use to analyse the survey data - either confirm or correct what I have written above.

Hi Nadia,
Thanks for raising this question.
From my research and experience, I would say, they are different but can be used interchangeably depending on the context.
- Web 2.0 is a technology that allows us to create platforms for interactivity - where feedback and exchange are key features.
- Social Media are the platforms created using these Web 2.0 technologies.
- Social Computing is simply the branch of computer science that focuses on analyzing the relationship between human behavior and computer systems.
Many researchers use them interchangeably, and I think that it is OK depending on the context.
i hope that this input is helpful.

Traditional English writing process vs digital English Writing process.
Relevant answer
Answer
Are you asking if the the process of writing is different between the two mediums? An essay is an essay and the "process" of writing is the same through either vehicle. Of course word processors offer easier access to some tools (e.g. spelling, thesaurus...). Perhaps your talking about writing different genres however. Twitter as micro blogging, wikis for collaborative writing... again, these tools offer little different except access and audience in some cases. The effects of digital tools in this sense could be mimicked with paper and pencil, but I view authenticity as key. Students will be doing most of their writing through digital transcription tools - and thus, we should embrace those, just as we embraced paper. Did we still have students writing on slates and blackboards when paper became readily available?

We have been experience digital divides despite progressive adoption of policy driven ITeS for development. With the increasing use of internet enabled services (Web 2.0 and above!!!) it is likely that prominence of ISPs would increase along with dominating market control through telecom network operators. So, are there any positive indications to support net-neutrality in any country whatsoever?
Relevant answer
Answer
Net-neutrality is not something new to be achieved, but rather a default network behaviour which is being eroded.  Prioritising network traffic for specific companies (eg. google being a very strong proponent) favours incumbents and creates a more difficult environment for new-comers to compete - the emergence of services like youtube for example, depended a great deal on net-neutrality.  So now they are "kicking away the ladder" making it hard for others to follow.  Given that ALL of the major incumbents set to benefit from net-non-neutrality are based in OECD countries one can certainly make a good case that net-neutrality can be important for "development" in non-OECD countries.  Assuming you measure ICT4D goals in terms of production of internet services rather than simply distribution and consumption -  ie. how many of the world's population can access existing services.

Hi, are you aware of any open data set on crowdsourcing, which include information such as profiles of workers/tasks, records of behaviors, completion status of tasks? Or are there any recommended method for obtaining such data set quickly? Thanks!

Answer
If you're looking for datasets which contains labels and anonymized worker ID, you may access the NIST TREC Crowdsourcing Track website (https://sites.google.com/site/treccrowd/). Since 2011, TREC Crowdsourcing Track annually distributes crowdsourcing datasets publicly to encourage academic research. In addition, you can find some other datasets from the following links: Dr. Matt Lease' lab in UT Austin (http://ir.ischool.utexas.edu/square/data.html) and Dr. Panos Ipeirotis' lab in NYU (https://github.com/ipeirotis/Get-Another-Label).

I'm currently writing a paper and want to present the argument that educators need to understand the types of technologies at their disposal and their various features before they can make discerning technology selection and deployment decisions. However I'm struggling to find evidence for this.
Does anyone know of any research that substantiates this idea? My paper is on Web 2.0 technologies, but the evidence could stem from any domain.
Looking forward to hearing from you!

Relevant answer
Answer
Hi Matt - until now I would have suggested that educators need to understand and clearly develop i) the goals of their courses and ii) the needs of their students - before they can consider the possible uses of technology.
However, with the advent of the Cloud and the many possibilities of 'personalising learning, it is clear we have entered a new paradigm for education and technology. The learners should be much more in control of their own learning and thus using 'specific'educational approaches - including technologies - may restrict their development.The role of the educator thus should be changing - understanding the possibilities rather than limitations is probably more appropriate.
We have an interesting EU project exploring this called 'School on the Cloud" http://www.schoolonthecloud.eu - you will find there our state of the art report and new paradigm paper

I agree with John - the use of emergent in ICT studies is problematic as what is emergent in 2012 is often considered passe in 2014. I would encourage looking at the educational technology sites (as suggested by John) but also consider ICT peer-reviewed publications such as JRTE, AJET, EdLib etc.

The I give absolute path on the image portion and the popup is showing in facebox By jQuery.
Note: I am using HTML 5
I explain Below....
1) This is the div::::::::::

like :----
window.onbeforeunload = function(e){
//alert('uuuuuu');
$.facebox($("#info3").html());
// window.onbeforeunload = '';
return "Do you want to Quit";
}
To know facebox I have provided two links here.
The Images are perfectly showing in firefox and opera but, it's not showing in Chrome, Safari and IE.
To investigate this problem, I am using firbug. The html is clearly good, but the portion showing the status of the images is pending whether the status of the images are 200K (Connected Successfully).
To help me to solve the problem...

One exception I can think of would be a data base which is freely available online where the users can add data and use it for their analyses - but for one there would be the problem of ensuring the quality of the added data and I am not sure if those shared data bases would qualify as being web2.0.

- how to integrate social software with other social softwares?

- how to social software integrate social software with business processes?
- how to integrate data from social software into the existing data model?
- how to create transparancy in the social software landscape?

The speed at which both, the number of internet-users and the total time devoted on the net, is growing, it is only imaginable about the unimaginable amount of e-pages that might be flooding/ crowding the net-space, very next moment. Thanks to the support of 'cloud-computing' and other software/ technology, which is now supported by much better IT-infrastructure, provided by every country, across globe, that makes it happen.
Question here is about the 'proportionate amount of junk & objectionable pages' (and abuses of internet) that also goes up and have negative effects on our society. Though 'junk & objectionable pages' can be subjective and debatable, should we not worry about e-garbage, e-waste and clear-junk pages..?
There are of course research-initiatives and other initiatives from Governments and regulating bodies. But perhaps not adequate (so as to match the speed/ pace at which the net-e-pages growing).
Shall appreciate, if you could respond on the following issues:

Answer
With NVivo, you can use NCapture to download streams from facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and YouTube. Data are retrieved as tables (than can be exported as Excel tables if needed). NCapture also allows to retrieve web pages as pdfs in NVivo.
As mentionned above by Gonzalo, NCapture can be used from Chrome or Explorer but not (yet) from Firefox e.g.
Data collected on the web with NCapture can then be imported in NVivo via External Data/Import/Other sources/NCapture.
When importing data tables in NVivo (e.g. from NCapture), you have to chose, for each column, to define it as a classification column or as a codable column. Only cells (or part of cells) of these codable column can be coded. Classification columns can be use to filter your data.
As you can export any NVivo table as an Excel file, you can edit your data in this Excel file and then import it again in NVivo (External data/Import/table).
Hope this can help.

Relevant answer
Answer
Hi, John. As a minimal starting point, you'll need one fast and reliable internet connection. Beyond that, a great deal depends on the intended scale of your project. How many users, and what is the expected content load on your systems? Although most of the software is free and will scale fairly easily, the hardware requirements require more advance planning. What level of availability are you targeting? If you cannot afford ANY outages, then you'll have to build a more complicated infrastructure.
The number of expected users and the services you intend to offer are the biggest determinants of the project's budget. Because blogs, social networks, and wikis are text/photo oriented, the bandwidth & CPU demands are typically modest. Streaming media -- such as podcasts -- are far more bandwidth-hungry, so you might want to establish the other services first. Unless you absolutely MUST spend huge amounts of money quickly, it's best to plan for a phased implementation of services and features. If you plan adequately, you can establish a solid foundation for manageable growth.

Hi Ufuk, both fields are mostly integrated into the marketing department of the company. However, their focus as well as the needed expertise are completely different. Advertisement as a classic communication tool relies strongly on classic marketing education. Most professionals working in PR however come more from the journalistic side.
PR's main task is to convince classic gatekeepers (like press outlets, journalists and editors) to report in a favorable way about the company and her products. In case of PR the company's usually looses it's communication sovereignty as the final decision how to report lies with the gatekeeper. Hence, PR professionals need to specifically know how gatekeepers will react to corporate communication and behavior. That's also the key reason why most PR professionals ar ex journalist, which use their personal contacts to ensure positive coverage.
Advertising is going the opposite way. These guys develop a key message that is pushed into media trough bought in ad space.
Larger companies therefore tend to have different people overlooking each field. However, strategy wise both fields need to be integrated into the company's overall marketing strategy. That's is basically the reason why PR is mostly treated as an independent sub department within marketing.

According to Nonaka's SECI model, knowledge transfer takes place through the dynamic conversion of tacit to explicit and vice versa. This conversion takes place when knowledge is being 'transported' from source to recipient through a communication channel. I want a model that could be used to explain how these theories could be combined to facilitate knowledge transfer in a farming community.
Relevant answer
Answer
This is far from the only model of knowledge 'transfer', and in practice, I'd suggest that you maybe challenge the notion of knowledge being something that can be transferred. Michael Reddy's paper on the 'conduit metaphor' discusses the concept of knowledge being like a substance that can be transported in some detail. It also outlines an alternative 'toolmaker's paradigm' that is much closer to more constructivist approaches to social learning, like Lave and Wenger's 'legitimate peripheral participation', Interestingly, the toolmaker's paradigm is somewhat close to a diverse farming community in some respects. I'm not entirely convinced that the SECI model really generalizes to organizations that are not large and relatively structured and hierarchical. The explicit/tacit issue is a real one, but the mechanisms will differ, and assuming a knowledge conduit will restrict the way knowledge is shared in a community.

Internet and the worldwideweb have certain features which make them a bit different from media forms that we have seen earlier. The linear communications models and the developments later on are not properly applicable in web environment. What would be an ideal communication ,model in a web 2.0 scenario? Any help in this regard will be highly appreciated.
Relevant answer
Answer
Traditional models are the basis for the deepening and development of architecture and design communication. Historically, models have been a growing complexity, from simple Aristotelian proposed sender-message-receiver until Recent classic and include functions (Lazarfeld), processes (Schramm), evaluation (Berelson), purpose (Berlo), planes ( Moles), semantics (Eco-Barthes), power (Wulf, Pasquale, Ezensberger), alienation, fetishism (Morin, Mattelard), a process correlated with the progress of scientific and technological productive forces. As the way people work and function is altered when new tools are used, communication models have been adapted to the new instruments, one of which is today's Web 2.0, tool that teaches us that it is not possible personally experience and acquire the information we need to act, reason that store knowledge in networks present or mediated. This form, forces us to navigate and recognize patterns hidden in the network, experiencing the idea of ​​chaos, which, as a science, recognizes the connection of everything with everything. The ability to communicate between sources of information, to create useful information patterns is essential in the knowledge society. A modern communications model should consider networks, defined as connections between entities (computers, electrical power grids or people), work on the principle that individuals, groups, systems, nodes can be connected to create an integrated whole, and that an alteration in the network has a ripple effect on the whole. Albert-László Barabási states that "nodes always compete for connections because links represent survival in an interconnected world" (2002, p.106). The nodes that become more presence are more successful in acquiring additional connections. The nodes (be fields, ideas, communities) that specialize and gain recognition for their expertise are more opportunities for recognition and effective communication.

2. Microblogging for Facebook-style communications (Yammer etc.). Share info, links, documents, calendars and ask questions. Becomes a powerful searchable database of hidden knowledge.
Those are the low-maintenance and easily adopted options. Then, if there are people with time and motivation, you can add blogs and wikis. A reference manager is also essential in a research setting, and modern solutions (Mendeley, Zotero) have collaboration features.
That said, the most difficult problem is always to get people to use the systems. If possible, add new functionality into an existing system instead of introducing yet another service to get better adoption.
We are currently officially on a Skype/Yammer setup but in practice most people are using WhatsApp/Facebook.

Big Data is one of the buzzwords of the year, and we heard arguments along the full spectrum – from having so beautifully many data available that we can solve huge societal challenges, over worries considering data archiving, to statements such as ‘a tsunami full of rubbish that n body will be able to use’ or (more scientific) doubts about being able to deal with the huge heterogeneity in semantics. Now, I would like to get your opinion where this debate has let us and where it might go.

I agree on this one, Raphaël.
There is a trend to have more and more (heterogeneous) data available from diverse sources and it is not bad to name this 'phenomenon'. In the end, this will (or better should) not alter our daily research work. Still, apart from possible disruptions, we might in some cases benefit from newly released information - if we find it ;-)
By the way, I gave up chasing for a single model (and format) that suites all. In the end, data is collected and optimized for a specific purpose. If you intend using it for something else, you have to life with some needs of conversion and be careful about its fit for another purpose than it was initially collected for.

Particularly considering social networking and discussion forums - such as RG (for scientific matters), LinkedIn (for business matters) –, if we spend time on any of those, we basically have less time for face-to-face discussions, paper writing etc. Is it worth it? Is it legitimate to still also write articles? How much time should be spent on which kind of activity? And, ultimately, is this worsening work-life balance?
