4. Artificial stupidity. How can we guard against mistakes?

Intelligence comes from learning, whether you’re human or machine. Systems usually have a training phase in which they "learn" to detect the right patterns and act according to their input. Once a system is fully trained, it can then go into test phase, where it is hit with more examples and we see how it performs.

Obviously, the training phase cannot cover all possible examples that a system may deal with in the real world. These systems can be fooled in ways that humans wouldn't be. For example, random dot patterns can lead a machine to “see” things that aren’t there. If we rely on AI to bring us into a new world of labour, security and efficiency, we need to ensure that the machine performs as planned, and that people can’t overpower it to use it for their own ends.

What are the Biggest Mistakes Teachers Make When Integrating Technology into the Classroom?

What are the Biggest Mistakes Teachers Make When Integrating Technology into the Classroom?

 

The word “mistake” is a harsh word. It implies flaws, pointing fingers, errors in judgement, something wrong and possibly even a dead end. I would rather think or connect the word “mistake” to first steps, stepping stones, experimentation and exploration. With that being said, those “first steps” or that exploration cannot become a routine cemented in stone how technology is being used in the classroom. Stepping stones are meant to lead to something else.

 

For the sake of the prompt given, here are my top 5 “Mistakes” (in no particular order) which I  see, read and hear about as I travel the world to learn and work with schools, teachers and students:

 

- Technology being used to substitute an analog activity


- Technology use being seen as an add-on to allow students to use devices, the Internet, a program or an app as a reward, for entertainment, as a time filler for students who finish early


- Technology use as a separate subject area


- Technology as a $1000 pencil initiative


- Technology seen as the solution to motivate and engage students

- Technologie utilisée pour substituer une activité analogique. (NDLR: Quoiqu'il faille bien commencer quelque part!)
- Utilisation de la technologie considérée comme un add-on pour permettre aux étudiants d'utiliser des dispositifs, l'Internet, un programme ou une application comme une récompense, pour le divertissement, comme un passe-temps pour les étudiants qui terminent plus tôt.
- Utilisation de la technologie comme un sujet distinct du cours.
- La technologie comme un crayon à € 1000.
- Technologie vu comme la solution pour motiver et engager les élèves.

Addressing Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs with Technology

Addressing Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs with Technology | Contemporary curriculum developments in education | Scoop.it

Technology is way too often given a bad rap by administrators and educators as a distraction or a hazard for students.  When technology is integrated intentionally with foresight and with intention of addressing specific growth-oriented goals, it increases the potential to help students learn, develop, and grow in unique ways.  It can be used to help address the needs as described by Maslow.

How to Spark Curiosity in Children Through Embracing Uncertainty | #EQ #LEARNing2LEARN

How to Spark Curiosity in Children Through Embracing Uncertainty | #EQ #LEARNing2LEARN | Contemporary curriculum developments in education | Scoop.it
In the classroom, subjects are often presented as settled and complete. Teachers lecture students on the causes of World War I, say, or the nature of matter, as if no further questioning is needed because all the answers have been found.

In turn, students regurgitate what they’ve been told, confident they’ve learned all the facts and unaware of the mysteries that remain unexplored. Without insight into the holes in our knowledge, students mistakenly believe that some subjects are closed. They lose humility and curiosity in the face of this conceit.

But our collective understanding of any given subject is never complete, according to Jamie Holmes, who has just written a book on the hidden benefits of uncertainty. In “Nonsense: The Power of Not Knowing,” Holmes explores how the discomforting notions of ambiguity and uncertainty affect the way we think and behave. Confronting what we don’t know sometimes triggers curiosity.

 

Show how the process of discovery is often messy and non-linear.

 

Rather than present breakthroughs as the logical result of a long trek toward understanding, teachers can share with students how discoveries are often made: through trial and error, missteps, happy accidents and chance. Firestein describes scientific discovery as “groping and probing and poking, and some bumbling and bungling, and then a switch is discovered, often by accident, and the light is lit.” All the poking around in the unknown, he adds, is what makes science exhilarating.

OneydaAyala's curator insight, November 16, 2016 9:28 PM
In this article the author addresses the need for educators to promote uncertainty in the classroom. Using the book "Nonsense: The Power of Not  Knowing" the author develops his claims. He writes with the purpose of telling the reader that the understanding of a given subject is never complete rather they have holes and when these uncertainties are addressed it allows for curiosity to take place. With the placement of curiosity students will be equipped to face the realities of the real world. Applying uncertainty when learning allows for the exploration of new ideas and acts such as novel interpretations can come into play. The author then proceeds to explains ways teachers can incorporate this idea into the classroom. One way this can be done is by  discussions that to allow students to understand that failure is a part of innovation and that confusion is often prevalent. Another way to reach students is by assigning that may be confusing. These include: assigning students to find mistakes, present an argument for alien views, and provide assignments that the student will fail. According to the author and the expert who wrote the book, incorporating such things will allow for the preparation of students into the real world.

edutopia: Creating an Authentic Maker Education Rubric

edutopia: Creating an Authentic Maker Education Rubric | Contemporary curriculum developments in education | Scoop.it
While many teachers are excited about the maker movement and may even be creating projects for their classrooms, assessment can be puzzling even to veteran classroom teachers. How can teachers prove that deep, rich learning is occurring through making? How do we justify a grade to students and parents alike, especially to the student who "just isn’t good at art"? By crafting a three-part rubric that assesses process, understanding, and product, teachers can rest assured that they are covering all the bases.
