Dean Shareski, Ideas and Thoughts, Dec 31, 2019

Dean Shareski question the nature of the discipline to which he has devoted most of a career. I confess to having said in recent years that I don't think ed tech is a discipline any more, so I can identify with where Shareski is coming from. It has splintered, with the 'pure'...

I have to confess that my main question on reading this Forbes article was to wonder who is funding all those articles that say the cure to all the nation's educational problems is direct instruction. This is Yet Another Article where direct instruction is offered as the solution to...

The answer is, as it always is in comparisons like this, it depends. The article offers a quick outline of each engine, compares the asset stores, links to documentation and training, talks about the development community, illutrtes (with examples) the development process, and...

Anany Levitin, Journal of Problem Solving, Dec 30, 2019

This is a fun read from a couple of years ago that turned up in an O'Reilly mailing list this week. While it will be of interest to psychologists and computer scientists, it will also give teachers ideas for class discussion or computation projects. The paper (15 page PDF) considers the nature or algorithmic puzzles, identifies two typologies...

A middle-income family prevents their daughter from taking on massive student loans for art school. I read this as a "poor people shouldn't aspire to rich people things" story. But for an artist especially, a network of rich friends is a much-needed asset, and one her local college won't...

According to this article, "Silicon Valley’s vigorous promotion of 'ethical AI' has constituted a strategic lobbying effort, one that has enrolled academia to legitimize itself." Playing a key role in this was Joi Ito and the MIT Media Lab. "The corporate, academic, and...

These are not technical specifications but rather recommendations for rules and practices to govern behaviour in virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) spaces (collectively known as 'XR'). Past experience in other virtual spaces such as discussion boards and social networks...

"We don't have to imagine what that more human, more expressive, more valuable web could look like," writes Anil Dash. "We just have to pay attention to the fact that we visit it every day." He cites examples like IMDB, Wikipedia, Snopes and Stack Overflow, and his focus is on "massive, collectively-maintained, curated and organized libraries of communal culture," but I think...

This is a good article despite the garish formatting (if you use Firefox you'll want to use the Just Read extension for this one). The main point of the article is that "we don't really know which patterns...

Sadly there has been no activity on the blog since last June, but I still think it's worth directing attention to this project bringing together resources on universal design for learning (UDL), and in particular this grid on...

This is from last March, but I found it today, and the title alone is worth passing along this set of slides. "Natural language isn’t just English, and NLP work should stop pretending that it is. If you’re a consumer of NLP tech (e.g. for...

This link is to the first issue of the Undergraduate Philosophy Journal of Australasia. I like not only that it is open access, but also that it is by and for undergraduate students. Now I have my criticisms of journals and that whole practice, but I also think it's really important for students to engage in the actual practices of a profession (for better or worse) as they learn about it. Also, it gives us an insight on what they study and find...
