Glad you enjoyed it Peter Francis.
Denis Lundie's curator insight, January 11, 2017 7:01 PM
It was acknowledged early in the development of cognitive psychology that the information processing paradigm was just that (1980's), and Thomas Kuhn's book explained how these metaphors come and go, and why they don't fade quickly. Surely Robert knows this, so why the tirade when he would know exactly why it is going to be around until a 'better' paradigm emerges. Exhorting people to simply 'drop' it without presenting an emergent replacement is futile, as he would know - we're talking about humans after all.

Another long article that covers many areas, AI's impact on HE (e.g. Adaptive learning), apprenticeship model, govt policy.  In a nutshell, all is related to skills in the future job market.

Education and learning have never been finished. What we assumed could be finished was school. Teaching should focus on skills that allow students to continue to learn as they move forward in life.

Rebels, Creativity and Artificial Intelligence

Rebels, Creativity and Artificial Intelligence | The 21st Century | Scoop.it

Creativity is the truly unique feature of Homo Sapiens. It’s not intelligence (even a thermostat can be said to be intelligent) and it is not consciousness (probably most primates and maybe mammals have some kind of consciousness), two “things” which incidentally are also very difficult to define and to study: it is creativity that makes the difference, and creativity is easier to measure and study.
What makes us so much more creative is an innate impulse to be different from previous generations. Humans are the only species whose children “rebel” against the lifestyle of the parents. In all other species the children live the exact same life of their parents. Humans are the only ones whose lifestyle changes in almost every generation.
