Artificial intelligence and language

Artificial intelligence and language | Learning Technology News | Scoop.it
The reason these software programs leave so much to be desired comes down to language. This is where natural language processing (NLP) comes into play. Artificial intelligence can grasp the meaning of simple language, and speak back to you, but it is limited by its literal interpretations of our questions. A computer can know the definition of a word, but it doesn’t understand the meaning of words within a larger context.

Why Feedback Should Come in the Middle, Not at the End

Why Feedback Should Come in the Middle, Not at the End | Learning Technology News | Scoop.it

Traditionally, we give and receive feedback at the end of projects, assignments, and units. But is this the best way to ensure progress?

Teaching the Teachers

Teaching the Teachers | Learning Technology News | Scoop.it

Recent education reforms have urged teachers to foster collaboration, debate and reflection among students, in order to develop cognitive processes like those called for in the new standards. Ironically, districts rarely apply these same learning techniques to developing teachers. At the same time, teacher’s performance is increasingly tied to their students. This is a disparity that must be corrected.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, May 20, 11:12 AM
Teaching teachers is a key to the future of schooling. It is not enough to simply reform what we do and move deck chairs around a sinking ship. Teachers exist in transformational pedagogic relationships with students. It is a myth that we only play dual roles with students. We engage in multiple roles in living a full and complete life that informs who we are as teachers and learners.
