Number as Generative Device.

Sam Altman's insight:

 

Examining the ethno of (a seminal concept in) Western mathematics

 

"...numbers ... as inseparable from the practices in which enumerated material entities come to life, and as semiotically agential ...It recognises that the workings of numbers are deeply embedded in and constitutive of the real—they lubricate its happening".

Revolution Hits the Universities

Revolution Hits the Universities | Ethnomathematics & Learning | Scoop.it
Nothing has more potential to let us reimagine higher education than massive open online course, or MOOC, platforms.
Sam Altman's insight:

latest MOOC spruke but basic Qs unanswered. monitisation, high non-completion, credible assessment, limited interaction with authority ie profs. Student self-help & support feel good element but how effective overall even if useful in for some individuals & groups. More importantly how liberating in terms of previously under-represented engaging with high quality higher ed? Further even if sizable non-western student numbers engage, what does that say about their understanding & respect for their own knowledge traditions.Clearly it would be rare for high profile profs authorities in western knowledge systems & worldviews to be open in deep and meaningful ways to non-western value systems.

 

Global focus for K, Skills & attitudes knocks out the local place based ways of knowing & doing.
