Interpretations of Probability

Publicado en OLDaily el 30/08/2019

Alan Hájek, Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, Aug 30, 2019

This is an example I use quite a lot: the interpretation of probability. I use it to suggest that what counts as a fact depends very much on our point of view or perspective. Consider probability - consider, for example, the fact that there are 50-50 odds of heads...

This is exactly what we do as educators. We find 'glitches in the simulation' - in other words, we point to 'attractors' that would otherwise be bits of random noise in the background of a person's existence. The person pays attention to that particular location, and finds something...

This is a discussion of Shoshana Zuboff's book The Age of Surveillance Capitalism: The Fight for a Human Future at the New Frontier of Power. In it, Audrey Watters reaches back into B.F. Skinner's behaviourism quite a bit. Now as a philosophy student in the 1980s...

I'm not sure exactly what I would do with this, nor how complete it is, but it is definitely worth noting: "a large RDF data set with over eight billion triples with information about scientific publications and related entities, such as authors, institutions, journals, and fields of study. The data set is based on the Microsoft Academic Graph and licensed under the Open...

Coursera hasn't actually 'introduced' anything, it has acquited a company that did. But it's still an important development: "Coursera Labs allows learners to seamlessly work on projects and assignments in a browser without any environment setup or software downloads — simply click a button to instantly work on programming assignments using today’s most in-demand...

It turns out that in Europe, you can't just set up video surveillance in schools. "The Swedish Data Protection Authority (DPA) fined the Skelleftea municipality 200,000 Swedish Krona (£16,800, $20,700) for flouting a privacy law. The trial involved tracking 22 students over three weeks and detecting when each pupil entered a classroom."

A Tiny Sea Ecosystem in a Jar

One of the highlights of my high school career was the 'closed ecosystem project' wherein we took a jar full of creek water and plant life from the bottom, sealed it, and watched what happened. I kept careful track of it for months while everyone else gave up after a few days, so I got 20/10 for my report. This project is similar. "Last year,...

Todavía recuerdo mi primera clase de español que di. Por supuesto, me preparé a fondo, apenas dormí esa noche y llegué al aula con muchas ilusiones y miedos. Lo peor fue, paradójicamente, que olvidé llevar agua y una hora más tarde estaba casi sin voz. Lo mejor de aquel día fue que la alumna, era una clase privada, quedó encantada con la lección.

Como sé lo difícil que es encarar el primer día de clase, decidí escribir este listado de consejos para aquellos profesores que están formándose y que aún no saben qué esperar de este loco y maravilloso mundo de la enseñanza del español como lengua extranjera. Vamos a ello.

Qué debemos tener en cuenta el primer día de clase

Gaming language learning

Publicado en Language on the Move el 28/08/2019

For one of my postgraduate courses in Applied Linguistics, I was asked to write an assignment about my language learning history. Recalling all the phases I went through to learn English made me realize that my teachers had not used any educational games and had barely used technology in class. Only a few years on, and such a state of affairs has almost become inconceivable: digital technologies are ubiquitous in today’s...
