Seeing AI: Leveraging artificial intelligence to better view the world — @joycevalenza NeverEndingSearch | Web 2.0 and Thinking Skills | Scoop.it
I’ve been writing about apps for a long time, but they are not of equal importance.

Microsoft’s free Seeing AI app may be a game changer for people with visual impairments.  The research project is designed to turn “turn the visual world into an audio experience,” narrating the world for those who cannot see it, in real time using artificial intelligence.

4 Characteristics Of Critical Digital Pedagogy

4 Characteristics Of Critical Digital Pedagogy | Web 2.0 and Thinking Skills | Scoop.it
Jesse Stommel is an Assistant Professor of Digital Humanities at University of Wisconsin-Madison, and this idea has a lot to it.

In this idea, Stommel shifts the practice of pedagogy as a vehicle for “teaching” to something more whole–considering the humanities not as a school of thought or academic genre, but rather a reason for being. Humanities teach. The “digital” reaches. Therefore, the digital humanities should reach and teach as a matter of concept and design. That’s what they’re for.

Stommel offers four characteristics of critical digital pedagogy. Put another way, these are four things we might notice if digital teaching and learning is doing what it’s supposed to do.

4 Characteristics Of Critical Digital Pedagogy

1. It centers its practice on community and collaboration

2. Must remain open to diverse, international voices, and thus requires invention to reimagine the ways that communication and collaboration happen across cultural and political boundaries

3. Will not, cannot, be defined by a single voice but mus gather a cacophony of voices

4. Must have use and application outside traditional institutions of education

The presentation is mostly macro thinking of what education can be, quoting from Freire, Dewey, and even Emily Dickinson to make the case for what’s possible in a modern–digital and connected–learning environment. Definitely worth a look as you consider what you consider what the results of your practice should ultimately “do” in the real world–and the kinds of thing it should “break.”

The corridor of uncertainty: Accessibility as default

The corridor of uncertainty: Accessibility as default | Web 2.0 and Thinking Skills | Scoop.it

Over the last couple of years I have become increasingly aware of accessibility issues in online education. I admit to previously not giving much thought to how people whose hearing, sight, physical mobility or cognitive abilities are different to my own, interact with digital media. However by meeting and discussing with people involved in this area, I have gained a few insights into accessibility questions and a whole new world has opened itself to me.

This is an excellent thought provoking article. I have always used assessment as a teacher feedback tool. For the student, it included a rubric with the criteria required by the educational institution's  "curriculum" for accreditation. I prefer competency benchmarks, capstone projects and project/ problem based learning because of the no "barriers" in learning process.

Undertanding is not the same as knowing. The latter can be rote learning and memorization.The former is appropriating what is to be learned and describing it a new way.

In this talk, learn three unexpected habits of originals -- including embracing failure.
