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. It may be argued that the relation between ethics and law is such that in a treatment of the ethics of learning analytics we ought also to be concerned with the law in relation to learning analytics.

The Future of Online Learning 2020

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

And it's important to keep in mind the affordances are not just the things that the tool was designed to enable but also the novel uses people come up with in the process of using the tool. How does our current understanding of instructional design meet these, if at all?

Our existing education and training systems are not designed for this task. The open-source sharing of energy will give rise to collaborative energy spaces, not unlike the collaborative social spaces on the Internet. We may discern some patterns from the past but our current challenges — as we shift to an electric-digital-networked age — are unique. But none of our institutions, including our markets, are designed for what is to come.

A Framework for Building AI Capabilities

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

In the 1960s and 1970s, IT brought automation to a number of discrete business processes, including transaction processing, financial planning, engineering design, inventory management, payroll and personnel records. Cognitive insight projects take AI to the next level, using machine learning and other advanced algorithms to detect patterns in vast volumes of data.

Earlier this year, Scientific American , in collaboration with the World Economic Forum , published a special report on The Top Ten Emerging Technologies of 2017. Precision Farming Increases Crop Yields - “Combining sensors and imaging of every plant with real-time data analytics improves farm outputs and reduces waste”. As new data is ingested, the system rewires itself based on whatever new patterns it now finds.

Can AI Help Translate Technological Advances into Strategic Advantage?

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

A recent Harvard Business Review article, - Designing the Machines that Will Design Strategy , - takes these questions a few steps further. In their view business strategy consists of a series of highly interrelated conceptual and analytical operations, including problem definition, signal processing, pattern recognition, abstraction and conceptualization, analysis, and prediction. What technology, people, and design do I need to address these aims?

Determinism, Best Practice, and the ‘Training Solution’

Charles Jennings

If a chemical engineer is looking to design a new process or parameters for distillation in a chemical plant she may be able to identify the volumes and sequences that produce the highest amount of pure distillate. Cynefin is a sense-making model – where patterns emerge from the information and data – that explains how to respond to ordered and disordered systems.

The future of higher education and other imponderables

George Siemens

The patterns of change in higher education are surprisingly similar and global. Not all countries are adopting the aggressive UK model, but tuition patterns internationally (.pdf) The MOOCs that I’ve been involved with are designed to reflect the distributed, global, and networked structure of the web. The internet, especially participatory tools for communication and collaborative content creation, is impact research.

Social Business in the Age of the Customer

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

In other words, it is no longer enough for graduates to excel in functional, analytical and technical areas. As the line between products and services blurs into holistic customer experiences, companies are finding that their past focus on optimizing labor costs through automation and outsourcing finds them ill-equipped to design and build the required end-to-end customer experiences. .

Seven Key Technology Patterns 1. Predictive analytics will grow in significance in terms of student retention and learner support. I did a double take when I read this, since I thought we were done with analytics, but the author assumed (I guess) that we need a whole second class of analytics, this time to predict what students will do. Collaborative technologies and knowledge sharing will emerge as key resources for all forms of learning.

community - maybe collaboration and communities produce better test results, and maybe they don't. I think the key point here is to note that not everything is designed to increase test scores. Also aka 'design research', where proving something works is all that it takes) - what's wanted? After a period of time, a tool (like a word processor or LMS) is no longer novel to the teacher or the school, and so they settle into a 'more normal' pattern of usage for that tool.

Leadership and Rational Thinking

Ferrucci compared the computational patterns in Watson with leadership in a complex, uncertain world. Another panelist, MIT professor Tom Malone , talked about the research that he and his collaborators are conducting on collective intelligence. Schmitz said he learned three key leadership lessons from this collaboration. The second key is to see yourself not only as a fierce competitor, but also as a broad collaborator.

Edge Perspectives with John Hagel: The Power of Power Laws

John Hagel

In many respects, the history of Western business in the twentieth century represents an effort to build scalable operations through standardization designed to serve “average consumers”. These managers inherit from the industrial economy a belief that, even where the world is not yet Gaussian, it can be made so through design. The problem is that most of our analytical tools are designed to understand Gaussian worlds. Here's to patterns that connect!

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. When you look at that, basically it''s like they have this model or design in their head of how we could rebuild the university system, wipe it all out, start over, and we''ll have a new model. Models of how to do learning, learning design patterns: Grainne Conole has done a lot on this.

I was trying to get them to spot fallacies by recognizing them, by seeing signs that would remind them of common patterns of argument. 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. Now they compete worldwide – I just took part in an online WizIQ session, through a very nice collaboration tool built and run by Indian software engineers.

Engagement and Motivation in MOOCs

Engagement is seen to comprise active and collaborative learning, participation in challenging academic activities, formative communication with academic staff, involvement in enriching educational experiences, and feeling legitimated and supported by university learning communities (Coates, 2007, p. It has established that instructional design input may also be important.

The 2010 IBM Global CEO Study

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Technology is a second major factor contributing to growing complexity: “… creating a world that is massively interconnected, with broad-based convergence of systems of all kinds, both man-made systems like supply chains or cities; and natural systems like weather patterns or natural disasters. As a result, such systems are intrinsically emergent or unpredictable, and their design, analysis and management require major creativity and innovation.

Filtering systems, content recommendation systems, analytics and other tools will make the task of recognition easier. We could talk about how better or worse to design these materials, but that now leaves the domain of cooperative versus collaborative learning. each learner will identify different regularities and different patterns, depending on their points of view. I don't expect students to detect the patterns in this by themselves, with no assistance.
