Big data increases the Digital divide & drives us towards the norm of the masses

  1. 1. DIGITAL DIVIDE & REPRODUCING NORM
  2. 2. Data divide - trickles down from the big Universities all the way to the vulnerable learners Data storage and data mining is expensive, educational fees for the data rich universities will rise DATA DIVIDE = INCREASED DIGITAL DIVIDE
  3. 3. In a world were profit rules, students from demographic groups that perform less can be seen as a potential loss, not worth recruiting from. SELECTING THE LEARNERS BASED VIA ALGORITHMS
  4. 4. by 2030 one third of current jobs will be lost to automation education should aim job demands, but also reaching a better quality of life, and enabling a new society EDUCATION FOR THE PURPOSE OF FUTURE JOBS, WHICH JOBS?
  5. 5. Why are bigger budgets provided to replace the proven human teaching with automated training that still needs to come of age? THE EDUCATIONAL DATA VERSUS THE EDUCATIONAL ACTIONS
  6. 6. MORE OF THE SAME? wo/man-made algorithms reproduce the norm of those who constructed the algorithms
  7. 7. Change does not come from the masses, it is the single mind that touches the truth felt within each one of us I AM NOT MOVED BY THE NORM, BUT ENCHANTED BY THE ONE Small data
  8. 8. THE NORM WILL DEFEND ITS OWN EXISTENCE, IN SPITE OF DATA PROOF
  9. 9. But life is not made out of efficiency only, life is quality, life is creativity, life is – at best – living your dream. EDUCATIONAL DATA IS CURRENTLY BUILD UPON EFFICIENCY
  10. 10. The success of data is only as strong as the lives it can help improve - and before all - sustain in the long term. We must turn the digital/data divide around, and aim for a better world
