  • Announcing: Second Breakfast
  • Perhaps it's a tad jarring for HEWN to return from a months-long absence with an announcement that this will be the last newsletter I send from Substack. But hey folks: this is the last newsletter I will send from Substack, and as a subscriber, I thought you should know.
  • Hi. It's been a while. Again.
  • Hope is a discipline — Mariame Kaba

OL Daily, Stephen Downes

  • Sane Dhlamini, Polity, Sept 29, 2023 This captures both the spirit and purpose of online learning. "Hundreds of historical grassroots democracy documents from the past 29 years have been made public in a bid to empower South Africans and assist them, alongside activists, to hold government to account." It's more than just that, actually, because […]
  • Daniel Mollenkamp, EdSurge, Sept 29, 2023 The 'direct instruction' crowd isn't going to like this. "The traditional lecture method of teaching calculus isn't as effective as active models. Those who learned from active methods did significantly better across race, gender and major, according to the study." I can believe it. Calculus was my biggest challenge […]
  • Julia Freeland Fisher, Dr. Heather D. Wathington, eSchool News, Sept 29, 2023 As I've noted before, what the elite schools deliver that the rest don't is a network of high quality connections. This article underlines the importance of forming networks and offers five strategies for designing tech that supports this process (yeah, it's a listicle, […]
  • David Benigson, TechTalks, Sept 29, 2023 This is interesting and a new (to me, at least) concept. "We already have a complementary tool that can mitigate generative AI's downsides while enhancing its creative potential. This tool, called discriminative AI, is another branch of machine learning specifically designed to evaluate content and categorize new information. If generative […]
  • Laurie A. Schintler, Connie L. McNeely, James Witte, arXiv, Sept 29, 2023 I really like this paper (21 page PDF) for two reasons. First, it firmly places the ethics of using AI in contrast with the existing human systems, and in particular, it notes that "human peer review systems are also fraught with related problems, […]

  • Here's a ChatGPT script you can run and modify yourself to experiment with the ALDA concept. The post AI Learning Design Workshop: See and Try the ALDA Rapid Prototype appeared first on e-Literate.
  • Using the ALDA AI project to capture real-time competencies as they emerge on the job. The post AI Learning Design Workshop: Solving for CBE appeared first on e-Literate.
  • Want to build an AI tool that will seriously impact your digital learning program? Right now? For a price that you may well have in your professional development budget? I’m launching a project to prove we can build a tool that will change the economics of learning design and curricular materials in months rather than […]
  • I'm not even sure "race" is the right term. The post Who Is Winning the Generative AI Race? Nobody (yet). appeared first on e-Literate.
  • A friend asked me for advice on how to deal with a long-standing problem with an EdtTech interoperability standard. The obvious reflex answer of the week is "AI." So I thought about it. What does AI mean for technical interoperability standards and the knowledge workers—tech and otherwise—who depend on them? The answer isn't simple. The […]
