Online Learning with Stream Mining

Talk given at the San Francisco Machine Learning Meetup on April 24, 2013.
davidgibson's insight:

In this case, the "learner" is the machine learning ecosystem...but I have a feeling that these methods may be needed to understand human performance over time in digital spaces as well.

Using the Facebook group as a learning management system: An exploratory study - Wang - 2011 - British Journal of Educational Technology - Wiley Online Library | Assessment of Deeper Learning | Scoop.it

Facebook is a popular social networking site. It, like many other new technologies, has potential for teaching and learning because of its unique built-in functions that offer pedagogical, social and technological affordances. In this study, the Facebook group was used as a learning management system (LMS) in two courses for putting up announcements, sharing resources, organizing weekly tutorials and conducting online discussions at a teacher education institute in Singapore.

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: Awesome Poster on Bloom's Revised Taxonomy

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: Awesome Poster on Bloom's Revised Taxonomy | Assessment of Deeper Learning | Scoop.it

Med Kharback:

I just got this poster from a fellow teacher featuring the 6 thinking skills as outlined in the revised taxonomy. As you probably know, Blooms taxonomy that was first created in the 1950s has been revised by Krathwohl and there are two  main changes that appeared in this revised taxonomy: the first one is semantic in that nouns are now being replaced with verbs; and the second change relates to the order of these thinking skills. In the old taxonomy, Bloom highlighted the importance of evaluating and therefore placed it at the top of the  thinking continuum, but for Krathwohl Creating is the highest order thinking skill.

Peer assessment may lead to better learning outcomes. In his Human Computer Interface course, Scott Klemmer of th HCI Group found that students can be put to work reviewing their cohorts.
davidgibson's insight:

I think of several ways to address the problem of scaling high quality feedback: 1) continuously human-shaped machine learning, 2) self and peer assessment using rubrics and automated feedback on those uses, 3) automated unobtrusive assessments, and 4) expert feedback. Numbers 2,3,4 feed into number 1.

Jenny Wakefield's comment, May 17, 2013 4:07 PM
The problem I see with 2) “peer feedback” is that peers rarely give good feedback. I say this based on experience from classes I have taken myself but also from within classes I have taught where I have asked students to provide peer feedback. Often the feedback given is lofty and/or positive in nature – rarely constructive leading to improvement/change. The machine-generated feedback holds more promise, as I see it. We need a way to extend on this – the automated machine-generated feedback. It is staring to emerge through systems such as Turn-It-In and Pearson’s machine-generated correction systems. There is definitely still room for continued development here though.

davidgibson's insight:

My comment on this was: If you data mined students responses to why they did such and such, would that not address a “why” question? In work I’ve been doing with Jody Clarke-Midura, the data being mined are the paths students have taken to arrive at a scientific conclusion. Patterns of activity found for subgroups in the data appear to us to be signs of both “how” and “why”. The paths might indicate how a certain group of students navigated some decisions and then why that led them to a particular conclusion. Group membership is then one of the predictive elements of the analysis; if someone can be shown to be a member of a certain group, then the probability of that student doing certain things and claiming certain things is increased.
