Agency and self-knowledge

Publicado en OLDaily el 06/03/2020

Brie Gertler, The Routledge Handbook for the Philosophy of Agency, Mar 06, 2020

This isn't a long paper, and it will reward a reasonably careful reading. It discusses the concept of agency as it relates to self-knowledge. As Brie Gertler notes, these are two sides of the epistemic coin: "Agency typically involves affecting...

There were a couple issues to sort out, but I successfully followed Tony Hirst's instructions in this post and now have my own GitHub-based version of an entire FutureLearn course form the Open University. Here's the...

Wakelet, Mar 05, 2020

The other day I complained about a product that does documentation poorly. By contrast, here is some documentation done well. A simple example: instead starting by of telling you "how to install" or "header configurations for Jekyll" (real examples), this documentation starting by telling you what it is: "Wakelet is a free platform that allows you to curate and organize...

I'm less inclined to call this a bibliography, which suggests some sense of completeness, and more like a set of starting points. I'm not even sure it's just a bibliography about ungrading, beginning as it does with Alfie Kohn and running the gamut to bell hooks's Teaching to Transgress. Though that said, Stommel writes, "Ungrading works best when it's part of a more...

This is a really really good article on the topics of both badges and competencies and the point where they intersect. The idea of 'competency badges', writes Serge Ravet, is that they apply badge thinking to competencies, when in reality our thinking about competencies has...

As the announcement notes, tota11y is "an accessibility visualization toolkit that aims to reduce the friction of a11y testing." What it does is highlight areas on a page relevant to accessibility guidelines - for example, colour contrast, input elements, labels on photos, etc. It's easy to use - drag a bookmark into your bookmarks toolbar, and then it will run on any site with a small but of Javascript at the bottom....

If you wanted to teach someone about Scottish tartans, how would you do it? Well, you could give them a bunch of tartans to look at and have them memorize them. That would be the 'content-knowledge' instructivist way. But if you really wanted students to learn about tartans...

I'm a fan of employee-generated learning (aka 'working openly'). Of course there will be no end to the concerns that actual employees might not produce very good content. That's what consultants are for! But still, there are ways they can improve their content, and they're far more likely...

This article profiles a recent Microsoft-sponsored IDC report (47 page PDF) on the role of AI in education. IDC surveyed 509 U.S. institutions; 78% public, 22% private, talking to 215 management and 294 staff. It might be better to take the time to read the actual report, as the summary is full of stuff like "Microsoft...

Before celebrating China’s Spring Festival, my husband and I were talking about new sources of local economic growth thanks to President Xi Jinping’s visit to Tengchong right after his first overseas trip to Myanmar in 2020. Tengchong, where I conducted fieldwork for my PhD about the language learning experiences of Burmese students in Chinese high schools, is a border town, located in the most peripheral southwest of China. It has recently acquired much strategic attention from China’s national government and numerous business opportunities are available to explore. However, our expectations and imaginations were stopped in their tracks by the official...
