Despite the arguments for writing notes by hand in class, typing out notes during a lecture has its own unique benefits and advantages. New classroom-centered software is being developed on an almost constant basis, creating opportunities for students to use these new platforms to actively engage with the material they’re learning while the professor is teaching it.

There’s a big problem with AI: even its creators can’t explain how it works

There’s a big problem with AI: even its creators can’t explain how it works | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it

No one really knows how the most advanced algorithms do what they do. That could be a problem.


Last year, a strange self-driving car was released onto the quiet roads of Monmouth County, New Jersey. The experimental vehicle, developed by researchers at the chip maker Nvidia, didn’t look different from other autonomous cars, but it was unlike anything demonstrated by Google, Tesla, or General Motors, and it showed the rising power of artificial intelligence. The car didn’t follow a single instruction provided by an engineer or programmer. Instead, it relied entirely on an algorithm that had taught itself to drive by watching a human do it.

Yes, You Can Measure White Privilege

Yes, You Can Measure White Privilege | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Whenever anyone slips the words “white privilege” into a conversation, it immediately builds an impenetrable wall. For some white people, the words elicit an uneasy feeling because, for them, the term is accusatory without being specific. It is a nebulous concept that seemingly reduces the complex mishmash of history, racism and social phenomena to a nonspecific groupthink phrase.
