>> "Learning Linked Data" - project plans 2013+ for comment
>>
>>   "Learning Linked Data," a one-year planning activity under the
>>   National Leadership Program of the Institute of Museum and Library
>>   Services (IMLS) [1], is planning a project to support professional
>>   education and development by promoting software tools and skills
>>   needed for understanding and processing Linked Data.
>>
>>   A planning workshop involving information-school faculty,
>>   information system consultants, students, and software developers
>>   identified the types of software tools needed for exploring a target
>>   set of learning topics.
>>
>>   The follow-on project will engage instructors -- iSchool faculty,
>>   trainers, and consultants -- in dialog with developers -- experts in
>>   the use of tools, perhaps even the developers of those tools -- in
>>   order to produce documentation, screencasts, and the like, about how
>>   a target set of tools may be used in teaching, and specifically how
>>   they may be used in combination in addressing the target set of
>>   learning topics.
>>
>>   Our activity has posted its analysis of learning topics and related
>>   software tools for public comment through June 30th [2].  We are
>>   interested in hearing from members of the target audience of library
>>   and museum information professionals about how they foresee using
>>   software tools for instruction and learning.  We are also interested
>>   in advice from software developers on what tools we should target,
>>   or in ways our project might help document or promote the use of
>>   those tools.
