Jeff Borden: Education 3.0: Learn Better

1,083

Published on

In this presentation given at the Social Media for Teaching and Learning event in Boston this fall, Jeff Borden of Pearson explains that as technology informs educational processes for delivery, assessment, content creation, and more, the evolution of that technology is transforming teaching and learning. But, as we shift from Web 2.0 to Web 3.0, education must filter through the glitz and "shiny objects" to best understand what actually works and what does not. This presentation will draw on educational best practices from past to present (and even look to the future). From Bloom to Kolb to Johnson and Johnson, rote memorization to authentic assessment, learning theory to practical application, the World Wide Web has tools that not only help educators promote sound pedagogy, but advance it.

  • We tend to think that the spellbinding lecturers we had in college survey classes were gifted actors who could strut and fret 50 amazing minutes on the stage. But I think that the best of those lecturers are highly adept at reading their audiences. They use practical means to do this — tests and quizzes, papers and evaluations. But they also deploy something tantamount to artistry. They are superb at sensing the mood of a room. They have a sort of pedagogical sixth sense. They feel it when the class is engaged and when it slips off. And they do something about it. Their every joke is a sounding. It’s a way of discerning who is out there on a given day. A large lecture class can also create genuine intellectual community. The Internet teacher, even one who responds to students via e-mail, can never have the immediacy of contact that the teacher on the scene can, with his sensitivity to unspoken moods and enthusiasms. This is particularly true of online courses for which the lectures are already filmed and in the can. It doesn’t matter who is sitting out there on the Internet watching; the course is what it is.

  • In just three weeks, online gamers deciphered the structure of a retrovirus protein that has stumped scientists for over a decade, and a study out Sunday says their breakthrough opens doors for a new AIDS drug design. The protein, called a protease, plays a critical role in how some viruses, including HIV, multiply. Intensive research has been underway to find AIDS drugs that can deactivate proteases, but scientists were hampered by their inability to crack the enzyme's structure. Looking for a solution, researchers at the University of Washington turned to Foldit, a program created by the university a few years ago that transforms problems of science into competitive computer games, and challenged players to use their three-dimensional problem-solving skills to build accurate models of the protein.

  • Job: Product Manager Photo: delgaudm Answer: We'd answer "However many the market dictates. If pianos need tuning once a week, and it takes an hour to tune a piano and a piano tuner works 8 hours a day for 5 days a week 40 pianos need tuning each week. We'd answer one for every 40 pianos." On Wikipedia, they call this a Fermi problem. The classic Fermi problem, generally attributed to Fermi,[2] is "How many piano tuners are there in Chicago?" A typical solution to this problem would involve multiplying together a series of estimates that would yield the correct answer if the estimates were correct. For example, we might make the following assumptions: 1.There are approximately 5,000,000 people living in Chicago. 2.On average, there are two persons in each household in Chicago. 3.Roughly one household in twenty has a piano that is tuned regularly. 4.Pianos that are tuned regularly are tuned on average about once per year. 5.It takes a piano tuner about two hours to tune a piano, including travel time. 6.Each piano tuner works eight hours in a day, five days in a week, and 50 weeks in a year. From these assumptions we can compute that the number of piano tunings in a single year in Chicago is (5,000,000 persons in Chicago) / (2 persons/household) × (1 piano/20 households) × (1 piano tuning per piano per year) = 125,000 piano tunings per year in Chicago. And we can similarly calculate that the average piano tuner performs (50 weeks/year)×(5 days/week)×(8 hours/day)×(1 piano tuning per 2 hours per piano tuner) = 1000 piano tunings per year per piano tuner. Dividing gives (125,000 piano tuning per year in Chicago) / (1000 piano tunings per year per piano tuner) = 125 piano tuners in Chicago. A famous example of a Fermi-problem-like estimate is the Drake equation, which seeks to estimate the number of intelligent civilizations in the galaxy. The basic question of why, if there are a significant number of such civilizations, ours has never encountered any others is called the Fermi paradox.
  • This is the same type graph for the same two courses, but it looks at thread interactions between users in a course. Here the professor is blue and the colors for the students indicates the final grade in the course with green being higher and red failing or dropping. Again you can see very clearly several things that jump out. Course 2 is obviously more interactive and the nodes are more tightly clustered. Several subgroups have sprung up where students are interacting with each other more in course 2 vs just student to professor in course 1. You can see a few students in each course who reached out through threads many times but didn’t get responses. That seems to trend with poor performance. Again, these are two sections of the same course with different professors that show clearly different student behavior. We also see again that these simple visualizations of sample data can show us potential correlations that we want to dig into more. That’s the power of visualization of descriptive analytics.
