Adaptive or just good design?

Clark Quinn

A few posts ago, I wrote about how we might be rushing too fast into cognitive computing. Not that there’s anything wrong with augmenting us, but I was wondering if we’d be better off focusing on developing our non-cognitive systems first. And, of course, it occurred to me after a conversation that there might be another example of this ‘tech fix before smart fix’ problem: adaptive learning over good design. Is this a tech solution to the wrong problem?

How a little bit of data ruined my morning run

David Weinberger

Since I was 21 years old, I’ve gone through long stretches where I have “run” outside for exercise — in quotation marks because I am passed by people who are running so slowly that I feel bad for them until I remember that they passed me. I’ve gone years running infrequently, and then other years I’ll run 3-6 days a week.

Being human vs. rating people

I’ve hated rating people ever since I first encountered the practice. That was where everybody else does too: in school. Because rating people is what schools do, with tests and teachers’ evaluations. They do it because they need to sort students into castes.

What you learn not as important as how you learn!

Clark Quinn

I’m going a bit out on a limb here, with a somewhat heretical statement: what you learn is more important than how you learn ! (You You could say pedagogy supersedes curricula, but that’s just being pedantic. ;) And I’m pushing the boundaries of the concept a bit, but I think it’s worth floating as an idea. It’s meta-learning, of course, learning how to learn! The important point is to focus on what’s being developed. And I mean this at two levels.

How We Know

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

In my view, knowledge is a subjective feel, but there's a nice story behind it. The subjective feel appears circular: I say that I know when I can't not know. The story lies in the cause of this subjective feel: to know is to recognize. Recognition is involuntary, hence the modality of 'can't not know'. It is also non-grounded. The subjective feel is the knowledge. It's like recognizing a person. Your mother walks through the train station and you pick her out of the crowd.

Classical and Rigorous

Clark Quinn

A recent twitter spat led me to some reflections, and I thought I’d share. In short, an individual I do not know attacked one of my colleague Harold’s diagrams , and said that they stood against “everything classical and rigorous” My somewhat flip comment was that “the classical and rigorous is also outdated and increasingly irrelevant. Time for some new thinking” Which then led to me being accused of spreading BS.
