This is a good lesson for those whose business plans included the words "the Netflix for educational resources." Netflix doesn't last. "The Netflix model was great for viewers, but it couldn’t last. The content creators got greedy and scared, and now they’re determined...

What I link about the lessons in this online course (online guide? there's no registration or anything...) is that they embed working keyboards into the web page. So when they ask you to, say, try the different 'A' keys and ask you if you can hear how they are different versions of the same pitch, you can press the key and hear (or not) that they are different versions...

This article reports on AI+education companies in China that are "regarding AI as only a tool to achieve their educational business blueprint." What's interesting is that there is almost no mention of predictive analytics. "We need to improve the efficacy and resource sharing at first,...

This was nothing the opponents of DRM didn't predict, but that doesn't take away the sting. "While a handful of incidents have brought that reality into sharp relief over the years, none has quite the punch of Microsoft disappearing every single ebook from every one of its customers." You...

By 'JAMStack' the author means 'Javascript, API and Markup'. Read more here. The idea of a JAMStack is that you can locate applications on different servers (or different locations in the cloud) and connect them. The trick in this application is in...

You won't be seeing this as an app any time soon, but this development shows where the future of computer interfaces is headed (and in my eyes, also sheds some light on the nature of human consciousness). “Once the Sender makes a decision about whether to rotate the...

You will probably never read this book - as Tony Bates writes, "readers will see the irony of a book on open and distance education which costs US$45 for an electronic version and US$30 to download a single chapter, especially since the authors get no...

Theories of Meaning

Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, Jul 03, 2019

Another newly revised article in the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy. This article is relevant because so many educators use phrases like 'making meaning' without really having a deeper understanding of what they could be saying with that phrase. As someone with a background in these theories (and yes, I deserve your sympathy) it has always perplexed...

I could understand why they might restrict readership of a library-owned ebook to one reader at a time - it replicates the conditions of a physical book. But that wasn't enough. This story reports on a publisher of popular books, Hachette books, will now require that the license be repurchased every two years. So a library can...

As the author of Stephen's Guide to the Logical Fallacies (firmly in the Copi tradition and very much in need of a new edition) I have had a long-standing interest in fallacies. I define a fallacy simply as 'a common error...

Inconsútil

Publicado en Blog de Lengua el 02/07/2019

Inconsútil es una de mis palabras favoritas. Este adjetivo significa ‘sin costuras’. No tiene nada que ver con sutil, sino que procede del latín inconsutilis, donde podemos reconocer la misma raíz que en sutura. El elemento -con- nos da la idea de ‘uno con otro’, mientra que in- posee valor negativo. Por tanto, el adjetivo
