Title: Living In the KnowlEdge Society (LIKES) Initiative and iSchools’ Focus on the Information Field
Author(s): Yang, Seungwon; Fox, Edward A.; Chung, Wingyan
Subject(s): iSchool knowledge society undergraduate education interdisciplinary collaboration computing information
Abstract: In this poster, we describe the similarities between the Living In the KnowlEdge Society (LIKES) project and iSchools – both focus on the information field. This might lead to future collaborations between the two. One of the LIKES objectives is to spread computational thinking, fundamental CS/IT paradigms, key computing concepts and ICT paradigms across the Knowledge Society. This is analogous to iSchools’ vision of education for thorough understanding of information, IT and their applications. In the previous three LIKES workshops, participants from various disciplines had an intense discussion about grand challenges to incorporate computing/IT in their disciplines. All iSchools have courses that teach computing and information-related topics. If those courses can be expanded for other non-computing disciplines on their campuses with support from experiences of LIKES, it would further empower professionals in the iField.
