Compressed Features for Machine Learning

When building supervised learning models, I often come across situations where there is a large class of features I’d like to try adding, but the corresponding increase in model parameters seems daunting.

The eLearning Guild: 68 Tips for eLearning Engagement and Interactivity

The eLearning Guild: 68 Tips for eLearning Engagement and Interactivity | Assessment of Deeper Learning | Scoop.it

How do we drive engagement in eLearning and mLearning? Interactivities can help, but only if we design those interactivities effectively. Learners also need engaging content, an engaging (or at least not frustrating) interface, engaging media and visual design, and maybe a game here and there. In this eBook, experts provide 68 tips for making sure your learners are fully engaged, in areas including:

 

- Creating engaging content

- Creating an engaging interface

- Using interactivities to drive engagement

- Using media and visual design effectively

- Using games for learning

- Measuring engagement and learning

Game-based learning: latest evidence and future directions
Docuticker
Despite some promising results, the current literature does not evidence adequately the presumed link between motivation, attitude to learning and learning outcomes.

Via Justine Hughes
davidgibson's insight:

...evidence continues to mount and looks good, but more work is needed to establish the links - (aren't these links also in every other kind of learning there is? If someone has no motivation and a bad attitude, which direction do you think "learning effectiveness" would go as the system evolved - up or down? I think the links will be found, and in the directions we expect.

davidgibson's insight:

The 3 part structure of one's "strengths, interests and aspirations" that I've used as a mental model for decades might have an alignment with Carla's "command, contract and desire" paths framework. Strengths lead to first building on them and then trusting the recommendations other make for shoring up weaknesses. Interests statements declare your allegience to something, which can lead to contracts. Aspirations are the lofty horizons that you explore via independent exploration or creation of new pathways.

How Machine Learning and Big Data Are Changing the Face of Biological Sciences

Until recently, the wet lab has been a crucial component of every biologist. Today's advances in the production of massive amounts of data and the creation of machine-learning algorithms for processing that data are changing the face of biological science—making it possible to do real science without a wet lab. David Heckerman shares several examples of how this transformation in the area of genomics is changing the pace of scientific breakthroughs.


Via Szabolcs Kósa
davidgibson's insight:

This 36 min video is well worth the time spent - to get an idea (hopefully a transferrable one) about Big Data and the frontiers of science. In this case both "wet lab" (test tubes microscopes) and "dry lab" (computer modeling with machine learning) and needed and so is content as well as computational literacy.

HabitRPG is a time and task management tool which overlays motivational elements of computer games onto managing time and tasks.

The two major motivational elements are health points, which can be used up and coins which can be earned by doing daily tasks, following good habits and doing jobs from your 'Todos' list. These coins can then used to buy rewards.
