AI, the Metaverse, and the classroom: The collision arrives

AI, the Metaverse, and the classroom: The collision arrives | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Two people walk into an emergency room and approach the desk. They are completely unrelated to each other, but it’s not unusual for an emergency room to have two people in one night complaining of chest pains. For a triage nurse, acting quickly means the difference between life and death.

There is one doctor on duty in this emergency room and two patients. The triage nurse quickly begins interviewing each patient, waiting for the responses. As the nurse begins to learn more, it becomes apparent that one patient is having a heart attack that will kill her, while the other simply has heartburn or acid reflux.

While this scenario regularly plays itself out in hospitals around the world, in this particular case, it is a simulation in a virtual reality emergency room, complemented with avatar patients powered by artificial intelligence and language. What that means, very simply, is that real students – training to be nurses or nursing techs – can have useful conversations with avatars using voice and language, rather than text.

[PDF] Digital strategies in UK Higher Education: Making digital mainstream

[PDF] Digital strategies in UK Higher Education: Making digital mainstream | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Taking a strategic and organization-wide approach to adopting, implementing and developing digital technologies is critical in underpinning the long-term success and sustainability of universities.

 

In 2020, Universities UK, Jisc and Emerge Education, together with technical partner Salesforce, developed a long-term digital strategy framework (Iosad, 2020). It aimed to help university leaders build on their rapid response experiences during the pandemic. Now, in 2023, how are UK universities articulating their digital strategies? The picture is varied. Some are creating specific digital transformation strategies, while others are incorporating digital across existing strategies.

 

Jisc commissioned this work to develop a better understanding of the current state of digital strategies in UK HE, and how Jisc can best help universities with ambitions to use digital in transforming their activities.

 

We interviewed ten digital leaders from UK universities with a range of roles and responsibilities, from vice-presidents to IT directors. We also reviewed written strategies from other universities and attended conferences and events across the sector where digital strategy was a key theme. We obtained an international perspective through reviewing research into digital transformation from EDUCAUSE and others.

 

This report is intended as a snapshot of the UK HE sector at this point in time. It describes the aspirations universities have for the future, but also the realities of where they are right now, the challenges they face and what they know they need to put in place.

ChatGPT and the future of University Assessment

ChatGPT and the future of University Assessment | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

The difference we have with ChatGPT is that it doesn’t so much present a threat to the university experience, but rather directly into the heart of the purpose of a university education – its ability to ‘teach you how to think’. There have been shadows of this in the past, for instance the hostility towards Wikipedia (Coomer 2013), the emergence of essay mills, not to mention simple, now common place tools such as spell checkers and calculators. I remember vividly a very angry professor in the early 2000s telling me that reading lists with hyperlinks would make students baby birds, with wide open mouths expecting to be spoon fed. We’ve pretty much moved through all those advancements in technology and realised their benefits, but this one, I would argue, is different. Not because it does not have its benefits, but because of the sheer volume and scale of what’s coming will be meaningfully different and ultimately challenge the foundations upon which we measure that ability to think – university assessment.

ChatGPT o cómo la Inteligencia Artificial puede empujar a cambios metodológicos de enseñanza

ChatGPT o cómo la Inteligencia Artificial puede empujar a cambios metodológicos de enseñanza | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

"Parece que nuestro objetivo como profes es que no nos engañen, no que los estudiantes aprendan X, sino que no me engañen”, continúa Castañeda. Para esta profesora, la clave pasa porque el alumnado comprenda que la cosa pasa por no engañarse a sí mismo, porque aquello que vaya a hacer en la escuela, la universidad, no sea como hacerse trampas al solitario.

Edumorfosis's insight:

La comunidad educativa sigue pensando en el uso de la Tecnología Digital como una estrategia pedagógica innovadora que mejorará su práctica docente en el encapsulamiento del aula. El verdadero cambio metodológico consiste en complementar nuestro esfuerzo humano para propiciar aprendizajes en diversidad de contextos de aprendizaje. Las tecnologías digitales (EdTech) funcionan MEJOR cuando los estudiantes se apropian de ellas para APRENDER.  Seguimos empujando lo nuevo dentro de lo viejo y eso ya no funciona...

The evidence is clear: Learning Styles Theory doesn’t work

The evidence is clear: Learning Styles Theory doesn’t work | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

It is one thing to identify and accept the significant problems with learning styles theory and to lament its enduring popularity, but arguably the harder challenge is to propose an alternative pedagogic approach that more effectively satisfies the underlying needs that learning styles fails to address – that is, to help create the best conditions for learning while also respecting learners’ individuality.

A good place to start is with some of the robust findings from cognitive science, going back more than 100 years, which we should use as a base to inform how we design and sequence learning. It is now well established that ‘working memory’ – which we use to hold and manipulate information over short time intervals – is limited in capacity and duration, while long-term memory is seemingly limitless, and forms the basis for expertise. This basic division of memory function has profound consequences for learning, and much has been discovered about the optimal ways to foster deeper, long-lasting learning.

'This shouldn’t be a surprise' The education community shares mixed reactions to ChatGPT

'This shouldn’t be a surprise' The education community shares mixed reactions to ChatGPT | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Teachers and professors are concerned the technology makes it far too easy for students to use it as a shortcut for essays or other writing assignments and exams and that it generates content in a way that can bypass software that detects when students use information that's not their own work. 

 

Jumping to ban the tool may not be the right course of action, however, education technology experts say: Because AI will be a part of young people's future, it must also be a part of the classroom now.

US college enrolment is dropping, can this be reversed?

US college enrolment is dropping, can this be reversed? | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

In 2022, 4 million fewer people in America enrolled at a college than ten years ago. The COVID-19 pandemic further accelerated the decline in US college enrolment, with a 10% decrease in sign-ups. Why? A survey of those students opting out of college revealed that almost half doubted seeing a return on the cost and time invested.

College degrees were once considered a ticket to the middle class or better. Yet, for many Americans, a college degree is expensive, less relevant and takes too long to obtain. This explains why only 37.1% of 25 to 44-year-olds have a bachelor’s degree in the US.

ChatGPT sparks debate on how to design student assignments now | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

As faculty members ponder academe’s new ChatGPT-infused reality, may are scrambling to redesign assignments. Some seek to craft assignments that guide students in surpassing what AI can do. Others see that as a fool’s errand—one that lends too much agency to the software.

Either way, in creating assignments now, many seek to exploit ChatGPT’s weaknesses. But answers to questions concerning how to design and scale assessments, as well as how to help students learn to mitigate the tool’s inherent risks are, at best, works in progress.

ChatGPT has Colleges in emergency mode to shield Academic Integrity

ChatGPT has Colleges in emergency mode to shield Academic Integrity | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Colleges around the country have been holding emergency meetings of their honor code councils or other committees that govern student cheating.

The reason: a whole new kind of cheating that is suddenly possible, thanks to a new AI tool called ChatGPT. The technology, which emerged just a couple of months ago, can answer just about any question you type into it, and can adapt those answers into a different style or tone on command. The result is it generates text that sounds like a person wrote it.

Las plataformas estructurales actuales son incapaces de enfrentar eficazmente las crisis evolutivas de la era, y mucho menos son capaces de crear soluciones universales que atiendan las necesidades particulares de las personas.

Es cierto que muchas de las plataformas estructurales actuales pueden no ser adecuadas para abordar las complejas crisis evolutivas de la era. Estas plataformas a menudo son inflexibles y rígidas, lo que las hace incapaces de responder rápidamente a los cambios y de adaptarse a las necesidades específicas de las personas. Además, a menudo están diseñadas con un enfoque global en lugar de un enfoque individual, lo que significa que no tienen en cuenta las diferencias culturales, sociales y económicas que existen entre las personas y las comunidades. Es importante que se desarrollen plataformas más flexibles y adaptables que permitan abordar las crisis evolutivas de manera más eficaz y atender las necesidades particulares de las personas.
