  7. 7. Collaborating for STEM Education, Research and Commercialization: Forum XI Feb 24, 2018 Community Partnerships: Reversing the Paradigm to Reduce Lead Poisoning in South Bend Graham Peaslee & Marya Lieberman For the ND Lead Information Team
  8. 8. Outline • Introduction: Why is lead an issue in South Bend? • The science of lead detection • Reversing the Paradigm • Citizen Science idea • First effort: John Adams HS project • Expanding efforts – help wanted • Questions?
  9. 9. The Poisoning of Children: Lead First scientific publication of lead paint poisoning death of child in US: Lead paint banned in US: 1978 1914 Legacy Lead:
  10. 10. The Poisoning of Children: Lead
  11. 11. Children’s blood lead levels have improved significantly in general…
  12. 12. Current Method for Finding Sources of Environmental Lead • Screen infants with blood tests at 12 months and 24 months of age (St. Joseph County = 8%) • For children with Blood Lead Levels above 10 μg/dL, intervene and send team to home to find source(s) (note CDC recommended limit since 2012 is 5 μg/dL) • Latest research suggests no safe limit above 1 or 2…
  13. 13. ND LIT began last summer…
  14. 14. Preliminary observations: Summer 2017 • Lead is everywhere in South Bend…especially in older homes and soils surrounding them. • Latest XRF technology is robust, and for soils matched traditional chemical techniques. • Indicators of environmental lead in South Bend include: house dust, soils, paint chips… (not water) • With 110,000 residences in South Bend, not going to be able to measure them all by visiting…
  15. 15. Age of the house matters… Still 66,000 residence units built 1979
  16. 16. First Effort: John Adams High School Daniel Walsh Mark Wilson out/lead-testing-in-the-community-adams-hs/
  17. 17. Reversing the Paradigm • Need to focus on select samples, and to be able to collect and analyze lots of samples quickly and to return results directly to residents! • Rather than waiting for elevated blood levels in children to find lead… • Find lead in paint, soils, house dust first, then check if children live there ➔ Citizen Scientist Model
  18. 18. Currently Analyzing… • ~30% returned with samples in a week • Some improvements in kit design noted ☺ • It is possible analyze quickly and create reports for residents that are customized for their results…we can scale up to do more • Student interest high…where do we go next?
  19. 19. The Future • Improve the analysis process… get funding✓ • Expand scale next Fall…more SBSC locales • Citizen Science Workshop: Lead in the Community How do we better engage the K-12 students and their teachers ? What can they do for their part of the project ? How can we match curricular goals ?

  81. 81. Where we are and where we’re going: The digital ocean and 5 shifts in e-learning. @eddatadude Vice President, Advanced Computing & Data Science Lab Pearson & Adjunct Assistant Research Professor, Department of Psychology, University of Notre Dame.
  82. 82. Thanks! ● Day so far ● A few words on what I do
  83. 83. A play in two acts ● Digital Ocean: ○ What is the nature of learning activity in the digital world? ● 5 Shifts For E-Learning ○ What are the affordances & challenges of data driven software?
  84. 84. Let’s take a test
  85. 85. Let’s take a test I will show you a picture. As soon as you know what it is, I want you to raise your hand. But do not say anything (no cheating!!!)
  86. 86. What is it? •Is it a duck? •Is it a rabbit? •Is it a......?
  87. 87. Test 2: For each of the activities listed below, categorize them exclusively as either a test or a game: “Who wants to be a Millionaire?” “So you think you can dance?” The SAT or GRE? Your life? This question? Test Game
  88. 88. Meaning Matters “A test is a system in which examinees engage in an artificial task, defined by rules, that results in a quantifiable outcome” (Behrens, Frezzo & Mislevy, Kroopnick & Wise, 2007) “A game is a system in which players engage in an artificial conflict, defined by rules, that results in a quantifiable outcome. (Salen & Zimmerman, 2005; p 80).”
  89. 89. Educational Assessment is The process of characterizing learner attributes (not KSAs)
  90. 90. Digital Ocean for Tech Warriors Tests are Circumstances designed to make assessment inferences
  91. 91. We think of the world In two phases
  92. 92. Instrument And collect
  93. 93. The Digital Desert
  94. 94. Generate Capture
  95. 95. The Digital Ocean
  96. 96. Digital Ocean for Tech Warriors New Types of Understanding Problem Formulation Items pose questions Activities request activity Output Items have answers Activities have features Interpretation Items indicate correctness Activities provide attributes Information Items provide focused information Activities provide multi-dimensional information
  97. 97. Digital Ocean for Tech Warriors New forms of Data in The Wild
  98. 98. A world in which data are a side effect, not the primary goal of interesting and motivating activity, and perhaps a world where “testing” is a rare event, but assessment is “in the water”. Digital Ocean for Tech Warriors DiCerbo & Behrens, 2012
  99. 99. 125 And Dancing Goats
  100. 100. When students are engaged in data driven learning across the digital ocean, is it… Curriculum or Assessment? Games or Instruction? Games or Assessment? Formal or Informal? Schooling or Education? In-School or Out-of-School? Digital Ocean for Tech Warriors

TO THIS FROM THIS Interaction Creation Content Delivery Digital As a Process Digital As a Product Naturally Emergent Intelligent Services Comprehensive Features Everything Digital is Data Data are for Dashboards Assessment as Knowledge Creation Summaries of Performance Rethinking Digital Opportunity
  104. 104. 13 0 Create Life Changing Interactions Individual Environment Social Environment Virtual Environment
  105. 105. Consider: ● What types of interactions do you want to see? ○ Exploration ○ Experimentation ○ Collaboration ● Are we encouraging interactions that consider the whole person? ● Are we considering an ecosystem of digital and non-digital experiences and their intersections? ● Are our assessment activities aligned (or integrated with) our learning activities?
  106. 106. Think of Digital as a Process 132 From: Intrusive off-line data instrumentation & collection with slow feedback cycles. To: Continuous data for continuous learner insight and learning.
  107. 107. Consider: ● Have we thought enough about the learning processes we are trying to promote? ● Have we thought enough about the administrative processes we want to promote? ● Are we creating environments in which the learners can create and exploit new processes yet to be discovered? ● Are the processes we are involving our learners in bringing us closer to them, or making us more distant?
  108. 108. 134 From: Repetitive human activity that varies in quality and consistency. To: Capturing and replicating human intelligence to scale value and free people for high-touch needs. Apply Intelligent Emergent Services
  109. 109. Consider: ● Where software is making recommendations do we understand the basis for them and how they may or not match our understandings? ● Where software is providing more information or insight do we understand how to interpret this information in ways consistent with our instructional goals? ● Have we thought carefully about the role of individual agency in the use of intelligent software on the ecosystem of educational stewards (learners, instructors, parents)?
  110. 110. Exploit the fact that “Everything digital is data” 136 From: Analytics focused only on human behavior via “instrumentation”. To: Value creation from all existing digital assets, and the new assets created in educational ecosystems.
  111. 111. Consider: ● Are our learners involved in the creation of new digital value, or primarily consumers? ● Do we recognize the breadth of digital artifacts around us and the possibilities for a computational relationship with them? ● Are we empowering digital vision in our learning activities? ● Are we taking advantage of the power of social exchange and knowledge in the development of learner’s skills?
  112. 112. Leverage Assessment as Knowledge Creation 138 From: Isolated and non-persistent descriptions lost in time. To: Continually updated and persistent profiles that support customers along the journey.
  113. 113. Consider: ● Is our understanding of assessment primarily event-centric or learner-centric? ● Are we considering the learner over time and in high complexity? ● Are we growing our vision of assessment to match the other shifts?
