Experts See New Ways to Track Learning Experiences with Blockchain

Erin Brereton - EdTech Magazine

“In a blockchain system, an official source — such as a registrar’s database — sends information to the blockchain. As each new item is added, a verification process links it to other transactions. Such systems create a decentralized ledger that employers, graduate schools and other entities can use to verify academic records more quickly than waiting for applicants to submit printed transcripts.”

At least one promising application of blockchain includes creating an immutable, automatically verifiable record of all academic achievements, whether they were accrued in college or elsewhere.

Read to explore real-life examples of blockchain in action.

What Will AI Do for Students and Teachers?

Junaid Mubeen - WISE Qatar

Virtual tutoring seems to be the great enabler of personalized learning, but it’s limited in two key areas:

• They are governed by data-driven measurements that capture only a sliver of students’ thinking.
• Virtual tutors cannot provide the social or emotional connection that underpins the richest learning experiences.

Better than the AI term we should talk about Augmented intelligence: using technology to advance our distinctly human capabilities. In education, it recognizes that while technology can accelerate better learning outcomes, good pedagogy will always be the driver.

Why We’re Failing Kids... When it Comes to Entrepreneurship

Ryan Holmes - Medium

Ryan Holmes talks about his past and the lack of formal education for young founders. What's more, Canada was recently singled out in a recent EY G20 Entrepreneurship Barometer report specifically because “too few education and training-related efforts focus specifically on the needs of entrepreneurs.” His answer to this issue is the creation of The League of Innovators, a non-profit organization providing programming and mentorship to young entrepreneurs, all the way from discovery to market.

Harvard Professor: Let Students Take Phones Into Exams

Chris Havergal - Times Higher Education

"The father of the 'flipped classroom' has urged academics to take the next leap and to allow undergraduates to bring their laptops and phones into examinations. Professor Mazur said that the rise of Google and mobile internet access meant that we lived in an age in which we 'don’t need to memorise anything'.

As a result, he now encouraged students to bring their laptops and mobile phones into exams, and to 'look up whatever you want, whenever you want', with the aim of testing their creative and analytical skills, as opposed to their information recall.

'That means that I have to make sure that the answers to the questions I ask are not available by simple Google search, but that is a small price to pay. [This] has forced me to make my assessments much more meaningful and much more representative of testing the 21st-century skills that we want our students to develop.'
