EEXCESS – Enhancing Europe’s eXchange in Cultural Educational and Scientific reSources
http://eexcess.eu/

EEXCESS is a research project funded by the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007‐2013) under grant agreement n° 600601. Its vision is to unfold the treasure of cultural, educational and scientific long-tail content for the benefit of all users. EEXCESS stands for: Enhancing Europe’s eXchange in Cultural Educational and Scientific reSources. Through personalised and contextualised recommendation technologies we aim to enrich existing content dissemination channels users habitually use (e.g. social media) and content creation techniques users regularly conduct (e.g. writing blog entries). In order to ensure high quality recommendations we emphasize the integration of knowledge from memory organisations as well as the analysis of user behaviour and content consumption patterns. As the latter raises serious privacy protection issues, we will develop methods for retaining users’ privacy while offering the full range of personalisation. Key objectives include: a) Enrichment of Content; b) Personalised Recommendation; and c) Privacy Preservation. This will be added to Research Resources Subject Tracer™ Information Blog.

ConnectED Initiative

ConnectED Initiative
http://www.whitehouse.gov/issues/education/k-12/connected

In June 2013, President Obama announced the ConnectED initiative, designed to enrich K-12 education for every student in America. ConnectED empowers teachers with the best technology and the training to make the most of it, and empowers students through individualized learning and rich, digital content. Preparing America’s students with the skills they need to get good jobs and compete with other countries relies increasingly on interactive, personalized learning experiences driven by new technology. Yet fewer than 30% of America’s schools have the broadband they need to teach using today’s technology. Under ConnectED, however, 99% of American students will have access to next-generation broadband by 2017. That connectivity will help transform the classroom experience for all students, regardless of income. The President also directed the federal government to make better use of existing funds to get Internet connectivity and educational technology into classrooms, and into the hands of teachers trained on its advantages. And he called on businesses, states, districts, schools, and communities to support this vision, which requires no congressional action. Following the 2014 State of the Union address, the President announced major progress on the initiative, highlighting commitments by the FCC and the private sector.
