Machine Bias [...]

> Brennan testified that he didn’t design his software to be used in sentencing. “I wanted to stay away from the courts,” Brennan said, explaining that his focus was on reducing crime rather than punishment. “But as time went on I started realizing that so many decisions are made, you know, in the courts. So I gradually softened on whether this could be used i...

 

Paying Skilled Workers [...]

> Unfortunately, our research does not provide an explanation for why wages do not reflect relative labor market conditions across occupations or skills. However, the data clearly indicates that wages for workers with scarce skills are too low compared to wages for workers with a more abundant skill set. It would seem that this provides a profitable opportunity for co...

 

De-Legitimization [...]

> You have to assume your allies have good intentions and are being thoughtful and reflective about their practice. You have to treat differences in approach as differences in personal theories of change, not as tests of moral fiber. That means engaging respectfully with the person’s underlying assumptions instead of challenging their motives or character. And not ...

Millennials Are People, Too [...]

> Millennial students are human beings like any other. Their desire for stimulating, collaborative, gratifying things is identical to the same desires held by previous generations. > There are some generational differences, namely that Millennial students report being more prone to anxiety and depression than previous generations, but this is not because of some inher...

> For these reasons, it may be preferably to embrace an alternative to personalized learning, which might be called personal learning. In the case of personal learning, the role of the educational system is not to provide learning, it is to support learning. Meanwhile, the decisions about what to learn, how to learn, and where to learn are made outside the educationa...

 

Grit and racism [...]

> Rubbish! Soft skill training is disguised bootstrapping, which insidiously blames youth for failing in racist systems designed to block their success, and it abdicates the middle class from any responsibility to uproot inequality. It’s racism that really keeps students out of college and careers, not kids’ lack of resilience. Students are ready for college and j...

 

OER Intermediacy [...]

> Our architectures tend to emphasize stability (present usefulness) over the intermediate nature of such things. > > As an example, we often choose formats which privilege sharing (present usefulness) at the expense of remix (intermediacy). I first encountered this when looking at OpenCourseWare (OCW) in the mid-aughts. In the quest to share things in “open” for...

 

Barriers to Remix [...]

> What resonated to me from Mike’s piece above everything else was his recognition of a clash between usefulness and remixability. Resources that tend to be universally useful (PDF) tend to not be remixable. Resources that tend to remixable (let’s say open source code) tend to only be accessible by a privileged few who understand how to unlock the technology into ...

 

The MakerBot Obituary [...]

> MakerBot is a dead company walking. Yes, the newest version of the Smart Extruder is more reliable, with most extruders printing successfully after 1200 hours. Thingiverse, a MakerBot property, is still the most popular object sharing repository on the Internet, but others including YouMagine are making inroads. What does the future hold for MakerBot? It will linge...
