A Personal Cyberinfrastructure

3 Apr

I have read this article.

I agree with Gardner Campbell’s opinion. In my opinion, most of education which collage students learn is based on past experiences, books and issues. I don’t say this is not beneficial. Students learn how to calculate, speak and write from education. However, students have to do new challenging activity. They have to do not only learning but also showing something new. As same as students have to write their opinion based on books in writing classes, they constantly have to show their ideas not based on past ideas. To do so, Internet and computers can be good opportunities. As we are doing DS106 assignments, students can make something creative. Also, students can learn systems of the internet and computer.

On the other hand, even thought Internet, software and computer are necessary for the future, it is very difficult to know how to use those for some people. It means, some people who can use those technology well can put their ideas and create better things than people who are not familiar with those technology very well. Also, some teacher might not know or familiar with those technology. Thus, as long as the internet will be fundamental tool for education, people have to think about ‘steps’. Classes should be stared from very first step of how to use computer because as long as all students (include teachers) should be same position in order to show their ideas on computer’s activities.

Anyways, computer and internet will be more useful and personal tools more than now, so students have to familiar with those and that’s why learning on the computer is fundamental for the future.

    I usually use some articles which relate to my assignment in good way. But I also think I do not make original things….so I agree with your opinion.

    I like the way you expressed your response to the article by Dr. Campbell. I think you hit a very important point in your final two paragraphs. I agree with you that it is very important for students and faculty to develop the skills to use these new forms of computer technology more fluently and efficiently.

    I wonder if you think Dr. Campbell’s plan is a practical on or not. Several of your classmates have said that it will require too many drastic changes to make Personal Cyberinfrastructure a reality. What do you think?
