America’s education system as a whole is far too complex and intersected with other socio-economic factors for there to be easy fixes to this problem, Dan Rosensweig, CEO and president of Chegg, an educational resource company that started out offering online textbook rentals, said in an interview on Yahoo Finance’s On the Move. “We need to make learning more available and that means it has to be downloadable, on-demand, affordable and adaptive,” he said, adding that a host of parties including academic institutions, corporations, families and students need to take part in solving the problem.

The most important weapon we can use to change the world

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Sun, 2019-05-12 02:04

Charles Rick, Aitkin Age

According to a survey in 2016, the Pew Research Center noted 74% of American adults consider themselves lifelong learners. People are interested in enriching their lives in both their personal and professional lives. A characteristic of lifelong learners is the desire to keep learning, with a desire for more knowledge and self-improvement. Besides a personal interest in learning, people want to maintain and even enhance their skills to have a successful career. In the same Pew Research survey, 87% believe their jobs depend on continued learning of new skills.

Job gains in the services sectors continued to rocket higher in April as hiring remained hot for computer system designers, social workers and health-care professionals. Manufacturing, on the other hand, posted a third straight month of lackluster employment figures. CNBC studied the net changes by industry for April jobs based on the data from the Labor Department contained in the jobs report released Friday. The government said the U.S. economy added 263,000 jobs last month, more than the 190,000 increase expected by economists polled by Refinitiv.

How To Reskill Your Workforce For AI (Artificial Intelligence)

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Sat, 2019-05-11 02:10

Tom Taulli, Forbes

AI is considered the most disruptive technology, according to Gartner’s 2019 CIO Survey (it includes over 3,000 CIOs from 89 countries). So yes, this is big reason why there has been a major increase in adoption and implementation. Yet there is a bottleneck that could easily slow the progress – that is, finding the right talent. The fact is that there are few data scientists and AI experts available. In our recent State of Software Engineer report, we found that demand for data engineers has increased by 38% and demand growth for machine learning engineers has increased by 27% in the last year,” said Mehul Patel, who is the CEO of Hired.

How do we teach students to recognise when news is fake?

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Sat, 2019-05-11 02:05

Beckie Supiano, The Chronicle of Higher Education
Traditional-age students are digital natives. Professors are trained researchers. Neither of those qualities, though, prevents people from falling for misinformation online. That’s one finding from a memorable study, released as a working paper in 2017, that documented how three groups of ‘experts’ – among them historians and Stanford University undergraduates – evaluated online sources. Members of both groups tended to dig into a site, according to the study, by Sam Wineburg, a professor at Stanford’s Graduate School of Education, and Sarah McGrew, his doctoral student. The students and historians followed many of the tips that students are usually given for conducting online research, like examining a site’s domain name. But the tactics didn’t work.

California Mulls Crackdown on Online Partnerships

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Fri, 2019-05-10 02:13

By Lindsay McKenzie, Inside Higher Ed

Bills targeting for-profit institutions in California would prohibit tuition-sharing deals — a sign of growing political scrutiny of the role of online program management companies.  For example, a proposed bill would explicitly prohibit any private for-profit or nonprofit postsecondary education provider that is registered with California’s Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education (BPPE) from entering into tuition-sharing arrangements with OPMs or other academic service providers. State law requires that all private institutions with a physical presence in the state must apply for approval to operate with the bureau, unless they meet specific criteria for an exemption, such as accreditation from a regional accreditor, said Matt Woodcheke, a spokesman for the bureau.

The Promise and Pitfalls of 5G: Will It Kill Cable?

Knowledge@Wharton

A lot of expectations are riding on 5G, for good reason. The technology offers “potentially gigabyte speeds over wireless, fast enough that for the first time wireless could be a competitive alternative for wired systems — like cable- and phone-based and fiber-based systems — for basic broadband access,” said Kevin Werbach, a Wharton professor of legal studies and business ethics who used to work for the FCC, on the Knowledge@Wharton radio show on SiriusXM. 5G also could usher in new innovations to supercharge the “internet of things” and mobile broadband applications, among others. “It is very important for the U.S. to adopt this technology early.

Career Education’s Incomplete Transformation

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Fri, 2019-05-10 02:05

Andrew Kreighbaum, Inside Higher Ed

Career and technical education, which was once known as vocational training, has shed some of that stigma thanks in part to growth of new fields in communications, health care and engineering. CTE programs also have created clearer connections between skills training and continued postsecondary education. And supporters have pointed to both improving test scores and graduation rates among CTE students in high schools. But a report from the American Enterprise Institute released today finds that those signs of progress can mask continuing struggles of students who are enrolled in more traditional career and technical education courses. That’s because overall academic gains for CTE programs may reflect higher enrollment of more academically prepared, college-bound students rather than improving quality of courses themselves.

World Economic Forum’s AI head on how to protect human rights without stifling innovation

KHARI JOHNSON, Venture Beat

In the months ahead, the WEF plans to ramp up initiatives to boost implementation of AI ethics. Firth-Butterfield believes tech giants and businesses should be creating advisory boards to help guide the ethical use of AI. The establishment of such boards at the likes of Microsoft, Facebook, and Google in recent years made the notion a quasi-established norm in the tech industry, but the dissolution of two AI ethics boards at Google in recent weeks has called into question the effectiveness of advisory boards when they have no teeth or power.

Blake Droesch, eMarketer
Fewer people in the US are accessing social networking sites via computers, with the majority of users now exclusively on mobile devices. We forecast that 51.7% of US social network users will be mobile-only in 2019. As smartphone use grows, fewer Americans are using desktops and laptops to access the internet. The number of US smartphone users will reach 232.8 million in 2019, surpassing desktop/laptop internet users (228.9 million) for the first time. And the number of those who access the internet exclusively on a mobile device will grow by 10.6%, reaching 55.1 million users.

Machine learning algorithms could personalize advertisements for individual consumers

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Wed, 2019-05-08 02:10

Society for Consumer Psychology, Science Today

Although brands often target a certain gender, age group or social group with advertisements, personality-matching ads could potentially allow marketers to tailor their products to a wider group of people. A consumer who might not consider shopping online at one store may discover that there are in fact items that would be appealing. “It’s essentially bringing the benefits of talking to a salesperson to the online world,” says Matz. “Online marketers typically focus on a large audience, but now we could predict someone’s psychological traits to give them an individualized experience.” [ed note: consider implications for learning/education]
