Assessment is not measurement. I assess my students every single day, but it’s not in what is maybe the conventional sense. Assessment is not a spreadsheet, it’s a conversation.

Interesting view of AI and big data.

Carlos Fosca's curator insight, January 9, 6:39 AM

Pearson, la otrora editorial inglesa de libros de texto, cuya historia data del siglo XIX se redefine en nuestros tiempos como la compañía de aprendizaje del mundo. Con sus contenidos, ahora digitales, y sus sistemas de evaluación en línea, quieren dar un salto más fuerte y usar la inteligencia artificial y el análisis de Big Data para crear así la piedra filosofal del aprendizaje: brindar de manera instantánea una educación personalizada a cientos de millones de personas. Sin embargo, el problema de estas compañías es que entienden a la educación como un conjunto de procesos que pueden ser optimizados gracias al análisis de millones de datos. Quizás haya algunas competencias que se puedan medir de una manera más automatizable, me imagino por ejemplo aprender algunas rutinas básicas de programación, pero en un mundo donde se requiere una destrucción creativa del modelo educativo, que haga posible que podamos adquirir y medir competencias complejas como el pensamiento crítico, creatividad, pensamiento sistémico, capacidad de autoaprendizaje, comunicación empática y persuasión, entre otros; lo primero que deberíamos hacer es discutir cómo se diseñan nuevas experiencias de aprendizaje que se adapten al contexto y al discente y que hagan posible el alcanzar estas competencias de manera eficiente, sin el uso de sofisticadas tecnologías, para luego optimizarlas y/o extender su campo de acción con el apoyo de las tecnologías exponenciales.

Kim Flintoff's curator insight, January 9, 6:24 PM
“Of Pearson’s latest plans he says “once again Pearson conflate education with (their) content delivery and (their) measurement systems. They will, I suspect, be massively disrupted and become the Kodak of Education as we realise that context is king rather than content, and that we need new metrics to recognise the things we value today, rather than the things we might have valued yesterday.””

For Sale: Survey Data on Millions of High School Students // The New York Times

For Sale: Survey Data on Millions of High School Students // The New York Times | Data Mining and Students | Scoop.it

By Natasha Singer

"LOWELL, Mass. — Three thousand high school students from across the United States recently trekked to a university sports arena here to attend an event with an impressive-sounding name: the Congress of Future Science and Technology Leaders. Many of their parents had spent $985 on tuition.

 

Months earlier, the teenagers had received letters, signed by a Nobel Prize-winning physicist, congratulating them on being nominated for “a highly selective national program honoring academically superior high school students.”

 

The students all had good grades. But many of them were selected for the event because they had once filled out surveys that they believed would help them learn about colleges and college scholarships.

 

Through their schools, many students in the audience had taken a college-planning questionnaire, called MyCollegeOptions. Others had taken surveys that came with the SAT or the PSAT, tests administered by the College Board. In filling out those surveys, the teenagers ended up signing away personal details that were later sold and shared with the future scientists event.

 

“It wasn’t like I sought out filling in my information for the College Board to sell to other companies,” said Adriana Bay, 19, a sophomore at Vanderbilt University this fall who was solicited by the future scientists event when she was in high school. “You are giving them the liberty to profit off your information.”

 

Consumers’ personal details are collected in countless ways these days, from Instagram clicks, dating profiles and fitness apps. While many of those efforts are aimed at adults, the recruiting methods for some student recognition programs give a peek into the widespread and opaque world of data mining for millions of minors — and how students’ profiles may be used to target them for educational and noneducational offers. MyCollegeOptions, for instance, says it may give student loan services, test prep and other companies access to student data.

 

These marketing programs are generally legal, taking advantage of the fact that there is no federal law regulating consumer data brokers. They also face little oversight... "

New Media & Society special issue: Children’s and young people’s rights in the digital age

New Media & Society special issue: Children’s and young people’s rights in the digital age | Data Mining and Students | Scoop.it

"Rights-based approaches to children’s digital media practices are gaining attention offering a framework for research, policy and initiatives that can balance children’s need for protection online with their capacity to maximize the opportunities and benefits of connectivity. But what does it mean to bring the concepts of the digital, rights and the child into dialogue? Arguing that the child represents a limit case of adult normative discourses about both rights and digital media practices, this article harnesses the radical potential of the figure of the child to rethink (human and children’s) rights in relation to the digital. In doing so, we critique the implicitly adult, seemingly invulnerable subject of rights common in research and advocacy about digital environments. We thereby introduce the articles selected for this special issue and the thinking that links them, in order to draw out the wider tensions and dilemmas driving the emerging agenda for children’s rights in the digital age."

Privacy, Poverty, and Big Data: A Matrix of Vulnerabilities For Poor Americans // Madden, Gilman, Levy, Marwick (2017). Washington University Law Review

Abstract
This Article examines the matrix of vulnerabilities that low-income people face as a result of the collection and aggregation of big data and the application of predictive analytics. On one hand, big data systems could reverse growing economic inequality by expanding access to opportunities for low-income people. On the other hand, big data could widen economic gaps by making it possible to prey on low-income people or to exclude them from opportunities due to biases entrenched in algorithmic decision-making tools. New kinds of “networked privacy” harms, in which users are simultaneously held liable for their own behavior and the actions of those in their networks, may have particularly negative impacts on the poor. This Article reports on original empirical findings from a large, nationally-representative telephone survey with an oversample of low-income American adults, and highlights how these patterns make particular groups of low-status Internet users uniquely vulnerable to various forms of surveillance and networked privacy-related problems.In particular, a greater reliance on mobile connectivity, combined with lower usage of privacy-enhancing strategies, may contribute to various privacy and security-related harms. The Article then discusses three scenarios in which big data—including data gathered from social media inputs—is being aggregated to make predictions about individual behavior: employment screening, access to higher education, and predictive policing. Analysis of the legal frameworks surrounding these case studies reveals a lack of legal protections to counter digital discrimination against low-income people. In light of these legal gaps, the Article assesses leading proposals for enhancing digital privacy through the lens of class vulnerability, including comprehensive consumer privacy legislation, digital literacy, notice and choice regimes, and due process approaches. As policymakers consider reforms, the Article urges greater attention to impacts on low-income persons and communities."
