Internet Research Task Force

September 27, 2016

Internet Research Task Force
https://irtf.org/

The Internet Research Task Force (IRTF) promotes research of importance to the evolution of the Internet by creating focused, long-term Research Groups working on topics related to Internet protocols, applications, architecture and technology. The Internet Research Task Force (IRTF) focuses on longer term research issues related to the Internet while the parallel organization, the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), focuses on the shorter term issues of engineering and standards making. The IRTF is a composed of a number of focused and long-term Research Groups. These groups work on topics related to Internet protocols, applications, architecture and technology. Research Groups have the stable long term membership needed to promote the development of research collaboration and teamwork in exploring research issues. Participation is by individual contributors, rather than by representatives of organizations. The IRTF is managed by the IRTF Chair in consultation with the Internet Research Steering Group (IRSG). The IRSG membership includes the IRTF Chair, the chairs of the various Research Groups and other individuals (“members at large”) from the research community selected by the IRTF Chair. The RFC Editor publishes documents from the IRTF and its Research Groups on the IRTF Stream (RFC 5743). This will be added to World Wide Web Reference Subject Tracer™.

Hybrid Pedagogy

Hybrid Pedagogy
http://www.digitalpedagogylab.com/hybridped

Hybrid Pedagogy Inc. is a non-profit that “focuses on the implementation of critical digital pedagogy in education at all levels” and seeks to “prepare learners, educators, librarians, and administrators to teach, collaborate, and think with digital technology.” To further these aims, visitors to the organization’s website will find the open-access peer-reviewed journal, Hybrid Pedagogy, as well as the Digital Pedagogy Lab, where there are blog posts, podcasts, and harvested tweets. Hybrid Pedagogy provides a venue for voices in education that might otherwise be marginalized to be published and peer reviewed. For example, academics in the throes of late-summer syllabus writing may be interested in a 2014 article, “Syllabus as Manifesto: A Critical Approach to Classroom Culture.” The site can be a little tricky to navigate, and it’s hard to tell what portions of the content the site search covers – but a Google search on a keyword or article title + hybrid pedagogy works perfectly. In 2015 and 2016, Digital Pedagogy Lab hosted 3- and 5-day Summer Institutes at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, University of Mary Washington in Virginia, and in Canada at the University of Prince Edward Island. For those unable to attend in person, summaries and comments on talks at the 2016 Institute can be found on the website. This will be added to Education and Scholar Resources Subject Tracer™.

Wikiverse: A Galactic Re-Imagining of Wikipedia
http://wikiverse.io

Wikiverse is a new tool that provides users with a whole new way to browse Wikipedia and explore topics of interest. Created by data visualization engineer, Owen Cornec, Wikiverse allows visitors to visualize and explore links between Wikipedia subjects. The size of the Wikiverse can be controlled by the user, allowing users to explore either one, two, or five percent of Wikipedia. From here, users can explore any topic and see how this topic is linked to others. A list of related topics will appear on the right hand side of the site, or visitors can view the topic as a star in a three-dimensional galaxy. Related topics appear close by and are arranged into clusters, such as Art, Biology, or Geography. As visitors click on stars, full definitions and additional links appear on the left-hand side of the screen. Wikiverse provides a riveting experience, and highlights the interconnections between topics that, at first blush, seem entirely unrelated. This will be added to Reference Resources Subject Tracer™.
