Friction-Free Racism [...]

> The end game of a surveillance society, from the perspective of those being watched, is to be subjected to whims of black-boxed code extended to the navigation of spaces, which are systematically stripped of important social and cultural clues. The personalized surveillance tech, meanwhile, will not make people less racist; it will make them more comfortable and pro...

 

Virtual Team Collaboratation [...]

> In conclusion, characteristics of successful collaboration in virtual teams were: 1) consistent communication through multiple channels, 2) adjusted workload based on member needs, 3) ongoing explicit discussion of the workflow and/or a strong leader organizing the group process and task division, 4) acceptance of different abilities and skillsets of members, and 5)...

 

Systemic Teaching [...]

> Systems do not work in teaching ( I'll give you a moment to digest that casual bombshell). They work for behaviour management, but even here I think idiosyncratic systems work in classes with individual teachers best. However, school wide systems for teaching and learning never work as intended. Why? Humanity. I have worked in highly systemised environments, and I k...

 

Don’t Get Left Behind! [...]

> “Technology is changing faster than ever.” It makes for a nice sound bite, to be sure. It might feel true. (It’s probably felt true at every moment in time.) And surely it’s a good rhetorical hook to hang other directives upon: “you simply must buy this new shiny thing today because if you don’t then the world is going to pass you by.”...

Email>LMS? [...]

> People wrote more and stuck around longer for email than for the online course software. That says nothing about the quality of their responses, just the quantity. It says nothing about the degree to which participants in either medium were building on each other’s ideas rather than simply speaking their own truth into the void. > > But it does make me wonder, ag...

 

Decentralization and Network Effects [...]

> While the internet economy has been dominated by services that leverage network effects to date, this directive is one way that monolithic networks have changed from an asset into a liability. Because the cumulative value in a network is owned by a single party, that party becomes subject to enormous rules and regulations over time. The network effects are enjoyed ...

 

Heuristic First and Think Second [...]

> ...rather than asking people to use individual thinking about dozens of factors around an issue weighted with careful precision, what Gigerinzer calls “positive risk” cultures do is decide the acceptable level of risk for a given endeavor, then work together to design simple procedures and heuristics that if followed encode the best insights of the field when ...

 

Poverty of Opportunities [...]

> “The impressive accomplishments … show that the negative outcomes predicted for kids who grow up in concentrated poverty like Cabrini-Green … are not inevitable,” she wrote. “They result not from a so-called ‘culture of poverty’ but from a poverty of opportunities.”...

 

Venture Philanthropy [...]

> In The Gift of Education, Kenneth Saltman traces the shift from the ‘Scientific Philanthropy’ of the Carnegie, Rockefeller and Ford Foundations to the ‘Venture Philanthropy’ (VP) of Bill Gates. While Scientific Philanthropy extended the “logic of cultural imperialism” and worked to “serve ruling class interests”, it was to some extent built on the id...
