White House Proposes Regulatory Principles to Govern AI Use

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Wed, 2020-01-22 01:05

Reuters

The White House on Tuesday proposed regulatory principles to govern the development and use of artificial intelligence (AI) aimed at limiting authorities’ “overreach”, and said it wants European officials to likewise avoid aggressive approaches. The Trump administration said agencies should “promote trustworthy AI” and “must consider fairness, non-discrimination, openness, transparency, safety, and security.”

Reimagining the public university

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Wed, 2020-01-22 01:03

Naomi Schaefer Riley & James Piereson, AEI

The great state universities are not going to disappear, and many will maintain a standard of excellence, but in an age of inefficient governments trying to do all things for all people, they will not have the money to compete as they once did with high-performing private institutions. The financial model built in the post-war years is no longer sustainable under present circumstances. Academic leaders have tried to circumvent this reality by raising tuition, recruiting out-of-state students, and employing other short-term fixes that fail to address the fundamental problems at hand. It is time they adapt their practices to a new and, in some ways, fundamentally different education marketplace.

The Y2K bug is back, causing headaches for developers again

Daphne Leprince-Ringuet, ZD Net

Twenty years ago, as the world celebrated the start of a new millennium, IT professionals across the globe were getting cold sweats at the prospect of the Y2K bug kicking in: the fear that important systems relying on two-digit date logs would come to a standstill if computers interpreted the 1 January 2000, registered as 01/01/00, as the first day of the year 1900. No major incident happened, because developers had seen Y2K coming and prepared well. But two decades later, it has become apparent that some resorted to a quicker fix than others, and simply postponed the problem to 2020. A series of incidents seem to have confirmed that Y2020 is tech’s latest unwelcome blast from the past.

Americans Rank A Google Internship Over A Harvard Degree

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Tue, 2020-01-21 01:10

Brandon Busteed, Forbes
When asked what they believe would be most helpful for a high school graduate to launch a career, Americans overwhelmingly recommend an internship at Google (60%) over a degree from Harvard (40%). This latest finding from research I led at Kaplan (conducted by QuestResearch Group) is based on a survey of 2,000 U.S. adults conducted in December. It says an awful lot about the state of affairs in higher education today. For many, it will be hard to fathom that an internship from a highly admired global company wins out over a full degree from a world-renowned university. But it comes as no surprise when viewed through the lens of the many public opinion studies done on higher education over the past several years.

The 60-Year Curriculum: What Colleges Should Do

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Tue, 2020-01-21 01:05

Gary Matkin, eCampus News

Universities should adopt the 60-Year Curriculum (60YC) as a goal and a theme. It begins in the freshman year and serves students throughout their lifetime. Whereas “lifelong learning” expresses the need for an individual to continue learning, the 60YC expresses the institutional response to provide lifelong learning opportunities for students and graduates.

The Future Of Edtech And Learning In India From An AR/VR Lens

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Mon, 2020-01-20 01:08

Meha Agarwal, Inc42

Technology is taking over education in universities, real-world technical training and schools. What roles do augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) play in edtech? In the 21st century, technology is taking over education — be it skill-building programmes in universities, real-world technical training and learning of abstract concepts in schools. The shift from conventional means to experiential methods of transacting learning has seen new-age technologies like augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR) and mixed reality — a combination of AR/VR — have been playing a key role in driving learning and edtech engagement.

Universities need to learn the early lessons of lifelong learning

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Mon, 2020-01-20 01:05

Andrew Norton, Times Higher Education
Ongoing falls in Australian postgraduate recruitment suggest a trend away from structured education for people in mid-career, says Andrew Norton. For years, future of work reports have warned of major disruption. Artificial intelligence is spreading automation from the factory floor to the offices of university-educated professionals. Workers in jobs that don’t disappear will need different skills and regular retraining. This scenario sounds promising for universities and other education providers, who can prosper from lifelong learners. But recent enrolment data suggest a more complex relationship between work and further education.

Jeremy Bauer-Wolf, Education Dive

College consolidation, partnerships with employers and the effects of deregulation are among the topics we’ll have our eye on this year. Higher education made a striking number of headlines in 2019, in part due to the Varsity Blues scandal that exposed the seedier aspects of college admissions and attracted nationwide attention for its celebrity perpetrators. But last year brought other changes and controversies to higher ed. Conversations about how to keep struggling small colleges alive have resulted in new state accountability legislation, the first of its kind.

Living AI: From Potential To Practice

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Sun, 2020-01-19 01:10

Sandeep Kishore, Forbes

Artificial intelligence (AI) is ubiquitous. Whether we are consciously aware of it or unknowingly using it, AI is present at work, at home and in our everyday transactions. From our productivity in the office to the route we take home to the products we purchase and even the music we listen to, AI is influencing many of our decisions. Those decisions are still ours to make, but soon enough the decisions will be made by AI-enabled systems without waiting for the final approval from us. As of now, the default state for decision systems is “off.”  What if we switch that default state to be “on”?

3 Major Theories of Motivation That Massively Boost Engagement In eLearning Courses

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Sat, 2020-01-18 01:05

Matthew Lynch, Tech Edvocate

In order to create an eLearning framework that truly engages learners on a multiplicity of levels, LMS designers and theorists must look to the innate factors within learners to both capture their attention and push them to truly engage in the courses offered to them. By utilizing established principles and theories of motivation, eLearning administrators can boost engagement across the board and truly maximize what their services have to offer. With that in mind, here are three theories of motivation that appeal to the eLearning experience. Utilizing aspects of these theories can do wonders for an LMS company looking to enhance their offerings to give learners an experience worth remembering.

Report: Shrinking share of adults thinks college is ‘important’

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Sat, 2020-01-18 01:03

Jeremy Bauer-Wolf, Education Dive

About half of U.S. adults (51%) think having a college education is “very important,” according to a recent poll from Gallup that solicited responses from around 2,000 people.  However, the data shows the public’s view of higher education has diminished in recent years. In 2013, 70% of respondents to a similar survey said college was “very important,” though a bigger share of respondents in 2019 said college was “fairly” important (36%) than did in 2013 (23%).  The decline was pronounced among two groups: adults ages 18 to 29 and self-identified Republicans. Pundits have expressed concern about research that shows waning trust in academia among conservatives.

Perceptions of nursing professionals about the use of patient safety computerization.

Rev Gaucha Enferm. 2019;40(spe):e20180140

Authors: Ferreira AMD, Oliveira JLC, Camillo NRS, Reis GAXD, Évora YDM, Matsuda LM

Abstract
OBJECTIVE: Getting to know the perceptions of nursing professionals about the use of computerization in promoting patient safety.
METHODS: Qualitative research performed at a hospital in the southern region of Brazil. Data collection was performed in November 2016, through a sociodemographic questionnaire and recorded interviews, guided by the question: "Tell me about the relationship between computerization and patient safety in this hospital". The transcribed statements were submitted to the thematic content analysis proposed by Bardin.
RESULTS: Among the participants, 21 were nurses and 31 were nursing technicians. From the discourses, the following categories were created, Information Technology Contributions for the promotion of safe care, and Information Technology Fragilities: indirect implications for safe care.
CONCLUSIONS: The participants perceived the computerized system as a resource that promoted greater patient safety. However, there is a need to improve the infrastructure and the technical capacity of the team for an efficient use of the system.

How the Next Decade’s Technological Tsunami Will Change Life as We Know it

Nick Bilton, Vanity Fair

And yet a decade from now, on the eve of 2030, we’ll look back at today in astonishment at how primitive life was in 2019. By then, it’s likely that cars will drive themselves. They won’t even look like cars, more like traveling gyms or gaming cars or mobile beds to nap on during your commute. Some will fly. (Maybe most of them will.) The TV on your wall will be replaced by wallpaper that screens images. Your phone could be replaced with a contact lens, or some glasses that (finally) look like glasses. Siri or Alexa will feel like another human living in your house—a creepy, invasive, all-knowing human—that will not only be able to understand sarcasm and intonation but will be able to identify which family member is talking to it, and respond with sarcasm and intonation in kind. You won’t shop on Amazon; Amazon will know exactly what you need, and when you need it, and boxes of groceries or diapers or dog poop bags will just show up at your house in what some people are calling “zero click shopping.”
