Students, Computers and Learning - Making the Connection - en - OECD

Students, Computers and Learning - Making the Connection - en - OECD | philosophy of technique | Scoop.it
Data and research on education including skills, literacy, research, elementary schools, childhood learning, vocational training and PISA, PIACC and TALIS surveys., Are there computers in the classroom? Does it matter? Students, Computers and Learning: Making the Connection examines how students’ access to and use of information and communication technology (ICT) devices has evolved in recent years, and explores how education systems and schools are integrating ICT into students’ learning experiences. Based on results from PISA 2012, the report discusses differences in access to and use of ICT – what are collectively known as the “digital divide” – that are related to students’ socio-economic status, gender, geographic location, and the school a child attends. The report highlights the importance of bolstering students’ ability to navigate through digital texts. It also examines the relationship among computer access in schools, computer use in classrooms, and performance in the PISA assessment. As the report makes clear, all students first need to be equipped with basic literacy and numeracy skills so that they can participate fully in the hyper-connected, digitised societies of the 21st century.

Putting Big Data in Context | Innovation Insights | Wired.com | philosophy of technique | Scoop.it

While futurist Ray Kurweizel and Moore’s Law gets all the headlines, over the years there has been a lot of interesting research and creative thought given to the idea of technological innovation and its implications on the need for human involvement in complex decision-making. In the era of Big Data, when social networks capture our conversations, likes and ideas like never before and sensor networks, or the Internet of Things, indexes more of the world around us, the fastest systems have access to more of the raw fuel, in zettabytes of new data, needed to make increasingly more complex decisions. But, does that mean smart systems will soon replace human decision-making?
