4th Industrial Revolution: Will it replace human with robots?

4th Industrial Revolution: Will it replace human with robots? | RESEARCH | Scoop.it

We are in the era of digital transformation where people are scared about losing their job because of robots and artificial intelligence. With increasing applications of machines, robots and AI, people are estimating that various job positions are job roles will be eliminated.
Many experts say that in near future we will see displacement of millions of jobs due to advancement and development in AI.
Automation in manufacturing process happening since 1960s and robots are eating our job since then. Then why it becomes worry for todays. In 20th century, robotics has implemented in automobile industry to build cars and as machines in various other industries. But in 21st century, the applicability extended as supermarket self-checkouts, automated guided warehouses vehicles etc.

The Future of E-Learning

The Future of E-Learning | RESEARCH | Scoop.it
Twenty-five years ago when I created custom presentations using Harvard Graphics (pre PowerPoint) I thought that one day people will know how easy this is and I’ll be out of work. Today, close to three decades later, not much has changed. Sure we’ve got a lot of cool technologies and all of that. But the presentations and the courses are still mostly the same quality (for good or bad).

Nowadays, the use of youtube has increase around the world, specially, with the appearance of the "youtubers". For that reason, this article provides 15 different youtube channels for learning English. These channels can be used by teachers and students. For instance, teachers can use content from these videos in order to enrich and vary your lessons, and students can explore this channels in order to expose themselves to native language and authentic material.

This article provides essencial infomation for me as an English teacher in development due to the fact that it exposes 15 different youtube channels for learning English. First, these channels contain different information that I can include in my future lessons. Besides, they have authentic material which sometimes is difficult to find. Finally, these sources give me the possibility to teach English in a different and innovative way.
Germán Yepes's curator insight, August 19, 6:32 PM
I find this article very helpful to all of us who are constantly users of youtube and english learners. Youtube channels are an amazing free source for learning. You can watch videos in your free times, while you are cooking, or doing other things. There are many youtube channels with different methodologies and content, but all of them have the same objective: teaching English.

From my personal experience youtube channels have helped me a lot in learning languages in a fun way, free, whenever you want. I sincerely recommend everyone to use them.

Welcome to the now “annual” Canadian AI Ecosystem Map. What a year it’s been. The point of creating this map was to emphasize that the strength lies in the Canadian AI Ecosystem, as opposed to just one city’s. This year, we’ve seen ties strengthen, but also some weaknesses exposed. What I see now is a corridor of cities, each remarkable in their own right, coming together into a cohesive form that is comparable in size and influence with the US East Coast or Paris and London.

When using specific apps, these cubes showcase different experiences as you rotate the block around with your hands.

How To Communicate With People Who Disagree With You

How To Communicate With People Who Disagree With You | RESEARCH | Scoop.it

We’ve all been there: those times you need to argue your point of view to someone who you know disagrees with you. You immediately go to your keyboard and start to type out that 280-character tweet, the Facebook reply, or a paragraphs-long email. Surely the reason, logic, and sheer power of your written words will convince whoever it is who disagrees with you to see your point of view? But new research suggests these written arguments may not be the best approach.

What Happens When Students Own Their Learning?

Hannah Vaughan's curator insight, May 30, 7:46 AM
This is a repost from Laura. 
A positive behaviour of students is being engaged with their school work. An efficient way to encourage students to take ownership and engage with the course work, is to give students control. Teachers are in the unique position to give students choices regarding what and how they study the required content. Glasser’s theory of control states that ‘if students do not feel that they have power in their… classes, they will not work in school’ (Glasser, 1991). This process of assuming responsibility for their learning allows students to become competent, independent learners. Choice theory is the idea that in order to get people to cooperate and work together. Instead of the traditional external control psychology which ‘pits individuals against each other in an attempt to make others do what they don't want to do’ (Glasser, 1991). In the classroom this could like designing a history project that is completely student led. Students are given a specific time period, theme or concept and asked to design a project which take an in-depth look into a section that captures their interest. Choice theory encourages students to be responsible for their thinking, behaviour, learning and choices. This aligns with Ragnar’s responsibility behaviour management plan that aims to teach students that they are responsible for their behaviour. ‘The students are informed from the outset that their thinking changes their neurology’ (Ragnar, 2015). It also teaches the strategies that they can employ to stop episodes of inappropriate behaviour. Ragnar (2015) describes how as teachers we want to get students to a point where when we ask, “Who’s got the power?”, each student is able to respond with “I’ve got the power”. The use of choice theory, or giving students control of their unique learning experience, helps students develop confidence in their own ability, and improve self-esteem. This in turn makes the learner feel good about their own abilities, leading to improved learning goals.

Blake Quinn's curator insight, May 31, 9:36 AM
I found this scoop quite short but very meaningful, as its contents of the different positive outcomes of students when they own their learning, are what I want to achieve and help guide my future students towards. I think the outcomes of students being self-determined, having growth mindsets, resilience and grit, project management skills and wanting to experiment. Are great traits for not only students to have in class but out of school as well. I will defiantly thrive to alter my ways of teaching to encourage students to own their learning while in my classes.
Mitchell Allen Klaer's curator insight, June 3, 3:50 AM
From what I have learnt so far in my pre service teaching experience I am a strong believer in guiding students to develop their own learning. I believe it allows them to think critically and become problem solvers as well as really experience what they enjoy about each subject. If they enjoy the subject then they are more inclined to engage which will enable them to learn the subject and remember what they learn.

Finally, though, the biggest surprise with this project was just how long it took - and related, the amount of compute resources it needed. The first surprise was in terms of calendar time. My original estimate was that as a side project it would take about 3 months. It actually took around 8 months. (And the original estimate was supposed to be pessimistic!) Some of that was down to underestimating how many hours each stage would take, but a big chunk of the underestimate was failing to anticipate other things coming up outside the project. It’s hard to say how well this generalises, but for side projects, taking your original (already pessimistic) time estimates and doubling them might not be a bad rule-of-thumb.

WHY IT MATTERS: reading about AI these days feels like everybody should be doing it because it is so easy. First, it is not. Second you need lots of data. Third, debugging is a pain. Reading this papers feels just like what we had to fight with in the early days on mainframe computers with punch cards and batch processing. Actually, this may be a good parallel to draw. Moreover, Element.ai estimates that there are only about 10000 people with the right AI skills in the world. Still very early - be warned!
