narative structures and codes - some great dot point information.

Aurion Learning's curator insight, August 2, 2013 4:38 AM

Claude Levi-Strauss was a social anthropologist who "found that stories that are told unconciously mirror the values and myths of a culture."

 

Storytelling is an effective way of communicating values and information.

“ Assessment does not merely occur at the end of a unit or course. Rather, it occurs constantly and is an integral part of daily classroom practice. Assessment is at the heart of teachers’ work as it focuses on paying attention to students’ mathematical thinking and acting accordingly.”

Assessment is one of the most talked about aspects of education. Mathematical thinking is one of the hardest things for use to gauge.

Abstract


In a 2015 speech before the American Council of Education, John Hennessy, President and Professor of Engineering at Stanford University, laid out a vision for how new technological tools and pedagogical methods can improve higher education. He especially highlighted the opportunity to revitalize courses by crafting online and hybrid learning materials that adapt their speed, depth, and approach to the individual student. Others have made the same point. The National Academy of Engineering, for example, has listed “personalized and adaptive learning” as one of its Grand Challenges, and a Learning Analytics Workgroup, composed of thirty-seven representatives from universities, foundations, government entities, non-profit organizations, and for-profit companies, has put forth an “endgame” vision of “personalized cyber learning at scale for everyone on the planet for any knowledge domain.” Given that companies such as Knewton, Acrobatiq, Udacity, and Khan Academy are either commercializing or implementing adaptive learning technology, and online higher education institutions such as Western Governors University are building it into their courses, it is likely in the near future that engineering schools and faculty will face questions about their use of this and similar technologies that enhance learning. These questions may come from students and parents, of course, but also from the media and perhaps even accreditors. In this review paper, we aim to provide guidance to engineering education leaders and engineering faculty via three main goals. First, to explain what adaptive systems are and what kinds of data they require. Second, to categorize the main use cases and possibilities of adaptive systems. Third, to outline the current limitations and concerns surrounding adaptive systems. Engineering leaders and instructors can then determine if their pedagogical context is amenable to deploying these systems, and education researchers can navigate the current systems’ characteristics to find areas where to make impactful contributions.

10 Ways Your Memory Is Completely Inaccurate

10 Ways Your Memory Is Completely Inaccurate | iEduc | Scoop.it
“The memory is burned into your mind. It was your birthday. You turned 7. You were wearing your favorite pink dress. Your sister bumped into you, chocolate ice cream cone in hand. The ice cream got smeared all over the front of your dress, and everyone laughed at you. But your sister always swears it didn't happen this way. You bumped into her, she says. And no one made fun of you; your guests were excitedly lining up to play Pin the Tail on the Donkey and didn't even see the accident. Who's right?”

Random walks and diffusion on networks

Random walks and diffusion on networks | iEduc | Scoop.it

Random walks are ubiquitous in the sciences, and they are interesting from both theoretical and practical perspectives. They are one of the most fundamental types of stochastic processes; can be used to model numerous phenomena, including diffusion, interactions, and opinions among humans and animals; and can be used to extract information about important entities or dense groups of entities in a network. Random walks have been studied for many decades on both regular lattices and (especially in the last couple of decades) on networks with a variety of structures. In the present article, we survey the theory and applications of random walks on networks, restricting ourselves to simple cases of single and non-adaptive random walkers. We distinguish three main types of random walks: discrete-time random walks, node-centric continuous-time random walks, and edge-centric continuous-time random walks. We first briefly survey random walks on a line, and then we consider random walks on various types of networks. We extensively discuss applications of random walks, including ranking of nodes (e.g., PageRank), community detection, respondent-driven sampling, and opinion models such as voter models.
