I think Open Data is a key issue in e-Learning and Research today. Here is a great initiative to co-create an eBook on this topic.

In this insightful Foresight Report, Daniel Miller probes the relationship between identities that people construct, express and consume online and off.

Colleagues, I am Sheba from Trinidad and Tobago. It is a pleasure to be part of such a diverse global group. I am involved in ICT Policy, Cyber-Behavior eLearning  and Internet Governance. Please feel free to add me on Linked In or Google + me if you have any thoughts to share. Great to be here with you all and looking forward to learning together.

World Environment Day

Tuesday 5 June is World Environment Day, which, the Secretary-General says, "highlights the need for a paradigm shift towards a more sustainable world."  This year's theme -  "Green Economy: Does it include you?" - also identifies a role for each person in "keeping humankind's ecological footprint within planetary boundaries" and building a sustainable future.  

Information on World Environment Day and the upcoming United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20) is available at:

PROPOSED IGF WORKSHOP - Call for Expressions of Interest/ Participation/ Ideas

I'm thinking of proposing a Workshop to Internet Governance Forum 2012 on

The Internet of Humans : An exploration of emerging sociological and psychological trends in Global Internet Behaviour and their impacts on IG Policy and Practice.

To be truly democratic : ) I'm posting up a call for Expressions of Internet on Google +. If you would like to participate, please let me know. Deadline looming! See description below for more details.

Description:

If IG and ICT policy are to be effective, we must cultivate a keen understanding of the ever-evolving human behaviours that accompany an Internet of individuals and communities; a human internet that shapes global society in ever more pervasive ways.

This multi-stakeholder, global and interactive workshop will assemble leading research in sociology and psychology of the internet, social mediaphiles, policy practitioners, businesses, government, and youth to hold a fluid discussion with all stakeholders present to:
discuss a range of research and perspectives in an attempt to demystify and unload the meanings that are embedded in concepts of Privacy, Trust, Freedom of Expression, Openness and Security; and
apply the findings to ICT and IG Policy, and practice.
