These 60-And-Older Seniors Will Destroy Your Age Stereotypes | Educhange | Scoop.it
Many of us are guilty of harboring an unfair stereotype – that, once we grow old, our best days are behind us and that we can no longer fully realize our dreams. As photographer Vladimir Yakovlev has discovered, however, that's just not true. His Age Of Happiness photo project introduces us to people who, at 70, 80 or even 100 years of age, are still following their dreams and trying new things.

It's time to measure 21st century aging with 21st century tools | Educhange | Scoop.it
Turning 65 in 2016 doesn't mean the same thing as hitting 65 in 1916. So why are we still using a population aging measure that was developed a century ago?

European Journal of Open, Distance and E-Learning: Predicting Student Dropouts with Data Mining Methods

European Journal of Open, Distance and E-Learning: Predicting Student Dropouts with Data Mining Methods | Educhange | Scoop.it
AbstractThis study examined the prediction of dropouts through data mining approaches in an online program. The subject of the study was selected from a total of 189 students who registered to the online Information Technologies Certificate Program in 2007-2009. The data was collected through online questionnaires (Demographic Survey, Online Technologies Self-Efficacy Scale, Readiness for Online Learning Questionnaire, Locus of Control Scale, and Prior Knowledge Questionnaire). The collected data included 10 variables, which were gender, age, educational level, previous online experience, occupation, self efficacy, readiness, prior knowledge, locus of control, and the dropout status as the class label (dropout/not). In order to classify dropout students, four data mining approaches were applied based on k-Nearest Neighbour (k-NN), Decision Tree (DT), Naive Bayes (NB) and Neural Network (NN). These methods were trained and tested using 10-fold cross validation. The detection sensitivities of 3-NN, DT, NN and NB classifiers were 87%, 79.7%, 76.8% and 73.9% respectively. Also, using Genetic Algorithm (GA) based feature selection method, online technologies self-efficacy, online learning readiness, and previous online experience were found as the most important factors in predicting the dropouts.Keywords: Educational data mining, student dropout prediction, k-nearest neighbour, decision tree, Naive Bayes, neural network.
