The Invisible LMS: why AI will change your relationship with Learning Management Systems

The Invisible LMS: why AI will change your relationship with Learning Management Systems | Learning - Social Media - Innovation | Scoop.it
Voltaire once said that the Holy Roman Empire was neither holy, Roman, nor an empire. We need not go quite as far in acknowledging the imbalance in the constituent parts of Learning Management Systems.
Sure, there’s a lot of management and system there, but often too little actual learning. And the learning that is there isn’t delivered when learners really need it, nor in the form they need it.

We need a new type of LMS for the way we want and need to learn today. With AI we have the potential to put learners at the centre and at the same time have them better understand and manage their learning.  

An AI-assisted LMS can bring the learning, management and system into a more harmonious and effective alignment.

It would seem logical to begin research on motivation by examining the thing that motivates—the end goal, the desired outcome, the carrot on the end of the stick. That’s what Dr. R.

Without changes in education, the future of work will leave more people behind - The Hechinger Report

Without changes in education, the future of work will leave more people behind - The Hechinger Report | Learning - Social Media - Innovation | Scoop.it

"A glimpse into America’s future labor market suggests a boom in health care jobs, soaring employment in clean energy and a continued decline in manufacturing positions.

 

"Those are among the key takeaways from 10-year employment projections released last week by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). The findings offer more evidence of widening socioeconomic inequality, the migration of jobs to the service sector and a drop in the number of middle-class jobs for workers with only a high school diploma.

 

"This unfolding economic shift is challenging educators to shape curricula that will prepare students for positions requiring an elusive combination of soft skills — the ability to solve problems, communicate effectively and work with others — along with technical capacities.


“The skill requirements in jobs have increased remarkably in their depth and breadth,” said Anthony P. Carnevale, research professor and director of the Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce. “The pace of change is outrunning the ability of educators to provide those skills and to qualify people for entry-level jobs.”

The Reality of Facebook and Consumer Research   | Learning - Social Media - Innovation | Scoop.it

A recent article in the London Review of Books does a superb job of clearly delineating just exactly what Facebook is and I highly recommend reading the whole (long) article. 

What this means is that even more than it is in the advertising business, Facebook is in the surveillance business. Facebook, in fact, is the biggest surveillance-based enterprise in the history of mankind.
