Here are some of the best for 2019. For years, a small hand lettered sign hung on the West wall of McLuhan’s Centre for Culture and Technology at the University of Toronto. Technology. Technologies are teachers of habit.”. kyleejohnson — “I’m taking an online data analytics class from the Wharton School of Business. Every fortnight I curate some of the observations and insights that were shared on social media. I call these Friday’s Finds.

Xyleme

While the modern learning ecosystem continues to focus efforts on digital learning, 50% of respondents to Fosway Group’s Digital Learning Realities 2019 survey say their learning content platforms don’t have what it takes to meet the needs of the modern learner.

How to Transform a “Big, Old” Company into an Agile Digital Business

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

“As consumers, we take digital technologies for granted… We don’t wonder why these things are possible; we simply expect them,” said Designed for Digital a recently published book by Jeanne Ross , Cynthia Beath , and Martin Mocker in its Preface. While in our personal lives we’ve enthusiastically embraced digital technology advances, many corporations and institutions still struggle to do so. What does designed for digital mean?

Globalization in Transition

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

I recently read two interesting reports on the state of globalization in 2019, one by The Economist, the second by the McKinsey Global Institute. Consider how to capture value from services. “Across multiple value chains (including manufacturing), more value is coming from services… To make this shift successfully, companies need to gain insight into customer needs, invest in data and analytics, and develop the right subscription, per-use, or performance-based service contracts.”.

from enlightenment to entanglement

Harold Jarche

Our existing education and training systems are not designed for this task. We have to figure this out together, outside the ‘system’ About 500 years ago a new communications technology came along and changed the face of Europe — print. Print was the most recent communications technology to shift society. Print technology became the communication medium to organize the myriad activities of the coal- and steam-powered first Industrial Revolution, 200 years ago.

The Business Value of Resilience

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

The Industrial Revolution was “as much about process innovations that reduced waste and increased productivity as it was about the application of new technologies,” wrote Roger Martin in a recent Harvard Business Review (HBR) article, - The High Price of Efficiency. Digital technologies, - the Internet in particular, - have played a central role in the rise of global, superstar firms.

New Issues for OERs

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

OERs and cloud technology (eg. The difference between previous iterations of learning technology, which are authority-based and centralized, and that which we are experiencing with modern web technologies where learning is based on creative activities that are distributed and democratized. Open platforms, analytics, algorithms and adaptive tools to support open learning content. I’m especially thinking here of learning analytics.

Evaluation of CL/4291 “Draft text of the Recommendation concerning Open Educational Resources”, UNESCO

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

19 September 2019. Information and communication technologies (ICT) provide great potential for effective, equitable and inclusive access to OER and their use, adaptation and redistribution. Is it all and only “appropriate pedagogical methodologies, well-designed learning objects and the diversity of learning activities”? There is first of all significant ambiguity in the terms “appropriate” and “well-designed”.

Educational Research in Learning Technology

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Kerr in this recent post , about how research in educational technology could be improved, but I have disagreements around the edges, enough that I think more discussion is warranted. Also, while Kerr is more focused on artificial intelligence in education (AIEd) research, I will address my remarks to learning technology more generally. Here are just a few: - access - it is demonstrably true that educational technology has increased access. 2019) which caught my eye.

Institutional Innovation - I Have a Dream

Edge Perspectives

When you look more closely at these initiatives, they tend to be applying digital technology in ways that can help the company do what it’s always done, just faster and cheaper. As I'll suggest, digital technology can help to drive a much more fundamental transformation but it will first be necessary to challenge all of our cherished assumptions about how to run an institution. Technology: Shift from tasks to learning.

#AI4Good: Augmenting Human Interaction

Beth Kanter

When we think about applying AI to philanthropy and fundraising, we have to ask this question: What data-based analytical tasks are not yet automated or could be done on a larger scale and that would free up time for the nonprofit staff to focus on the human interaction with the donor? She also offered some advice about designing chat bots, probably one of the easier and early applications of AI that nonprofit will adopt. There are two sides of the design process.

What is the Value of OLDaily?

There's learning analytics and open pedagogy and experience design, etc., MOOC platform ( Edraak Launches its School Learning for K-12 Children in the Arab World ) DRM ( HP's Ink Subscription Has DRM That Disables Your Printer Cartridges ) Web design ( CSS Specificity - An overview ) Educational leadership ( Dawn or dusk of the 5th age of research in educational technology?) But in 2019 there's no community that encompasses all of these things.

Ethical Codes and Learning Analytics

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Abstract The growth and development of learning analytics has placed a range of new capacities into the hands of educational institutions. The ethics of learning analytics will therefore need to be developed on criteria specific to education. 2019) Ethical Codes As Standards of Conduct While ethics commonly applies to people in general, there is a specific class of ethics that applies to people by virtue of their membership in a professional group.

My 25 Years of Ed Tech

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

My point with this article is that, in writing about the last 25 years of technology, Weller is writing about my history. I notice Weller cites Alan Levine's early use of BBS technology (it's unfortunate that this is the only bit of Levine's massive contribution he cites, and that it's nothing more than a comment on Weller's own blog). My contributions included this effort in learning design. Anyhow, I document many uses of learning analytics here.
