Game Learning Analytcs for Evidence=Based Serious Games

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Summary of a talk by Baltasar Fernandex Manjon at CELDA 2019 ie.ft.com/uber-game Serious games - Have been used successfully in many domains – medicine, military - But low adoption in mainstream education - So we say we’re working in ‘game-like simulation’ [link] - Fake news, trolls, e-influencers [link] [link] [link] - Has been formally evaluated Citizen science - Uses games for crowdsourcing Also: - Educational versions of commercial games Do serious games actually work?

A Framework for Building AI Capabilities

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

But, despite its market acceptance, a recent McKinsey report found that AI adoption is still at an early, experimental stage, especially outside the tech sector. The report adds that the gap between the early AI adopters and everyone else is growing.

Big Data Takes Center Stage

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

The first is what they call n=all, that is, collect and use lots of data rather than settling for small samples, as statisticians have done until now. “The The way people handled the problem of capturing information in the past was through sampling.

The Jobs Outlook for 2022

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

The survey identified four specific technology advances that are set to dominate business growth over the next five years: ubiquitous, high speed mobile Internet; widespread adoption of big data analytics; artificial intelligence; and cloud computing.

Nothing Has Changed. Everything Has Changed.

Charles Jennings

This study sampled 35,000 managers and employees across the globe. Sundials and Water Clocks As technologies such as sundials and water clocks evolved to allow us to measure time more accurately and efficiently we adopted them. A Revolution or a Slow Demise?

The Top Ten Emerging Technologies of 2017

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Precision Farming Increases Crop Yields - “Combining sensors and imaging of every plant with real-time data analytics improves farm outputs and reduces waste”.

What Makes a Company Good at IT?

Andy McAfee

Here’s a bit more on the research design and results: We combined data from three sources. Companies that were one standard deviation higher in being data-driven had 4% higher productivity and 6% higher profits than the average in our sample, all else being equal.

The future of higher education and other imponderables

George Siemens

Not all countries are adopting the aggressive UK model, but tuition patterns internationally (.pdf) The adoption of the internet and mobile technologies (read the whole Meeker Report if you want a good sampling of the scope of technological change) continues at a frenzied pace.

Research and Evidence

And let me clear that I totally respect this part of his response , where he says that "in my part of the world and where I am currently in my career/life, this is the most fruitful and potentially influential approach that I can adopt."

The Top Ten Emerging Technologies of 2017

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Precision Farming Increases Crop Yields - “Combining sensors and imaging of every plant with real-time data analytics improves farm outputs and reduces waste”. Sustainable Design of Communities Dramatically Reduces Waste - “Moving beyond the green-home level, ambitious projects are attempting to join blocks of buildings into a single sustainable unit”.

Beyond Free ? Open Learning in a Networked World

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

They are however designed to be standalone talks as well so hopefully you will not be as unfulfilled after the talk as you might be afraid of being. What I want to examine in this talk, is not the problem MOOCs solve at the moment but the problem MOOCs were designed to solve.

David Weinberger

Maybe libraries should replicate this, adopting information-driven departments. He gives as a sample of the problem of recognizing italics: “Copyright is way too long to strike the balance between benefits to the author and the public. How can we design a library for serendipity? We could each have our own virtual rooms and bookshelves, with books that come through various analytics, including books that people I trust are reading.

Critical Thinking for Educators

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Over time we would develop and grow our toolbox of analytical methods, evaluative devices, and argumentation strategies. The first set refers to the sample that is being used as evidence in the premise. "Pick any article from the newspaper," I would say to my students.

Connective Knowledge and Open Resources

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The difference is that a cMOOC is designed as a network, as I described above, while an xMOOC is based on a central course site and content that will be followed by all students. The xMOOC has a core content that everyone follows, while the cMOOC has a wide ranging network of content which people browse through and sample according to their own interests. Whether the learning analytics(LA) can be think as problem-solving techniques?

Beyond Institutions Personal Learning in a Networked World

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Thinking in Models: for Design, for Learning… A large part of this talk is about that change. We''re told there will be analytics and data-driven management. Models of how to do learning, learning design patterns: Grainne Conole has done a lot on this.

Engagement and Motivation in MOOCs

From Col - see also Beer, Clark, Jones, Indicators of Engagement , which has much of the same content Most of the research into measuring student engagement prior to the widespread adoption of online, or web based classes, has concentrated on the simple measure of attendance (Douglas & Alemanne, 2007). Colin Beer, Ken Clark and David Jones, The Indicators Project "It has given early indication that a different LMS or different social system can influence the level of feature adoption.
