Teaching and the value of serendipity and crowd wisdom

Video Transcript
Hello FM. Are University professors students in it for a future which we can predict. And we do this by creating an open curriculum in which students have total freedom to build her own curriculum. And we do this by getting rid of Shadows test classrooms lessons. Etc. We talked about this before and how we used to Canvas a table for this kind of education.

It's all online. So you can look it back. I will sketch to the contacts in a nutshell and then we go over to the main part of this talk of the man. You're looking at here, is Gordon Moore and go to Moores claim to fame. Is that he wrote the right paper.

White paper in 1969, which has become known as small as law dictates that every Say you to 40 months, the possibilities of it at Dublin. So it's impossible to predict what students are going to encounter in four years time of their education. So this is why we have to change the way we look at it and how we subscribe, if they start with educating for unknown future challenges. So we can tell what students are doing in over four years. So we have to learn to cope with that.

And this unknown future challenges. We are Translating that to the response of professional. So it's not as much as the coding skills or etcetera, and the students need to have. They need to have the capability to be responsive and we translate it and you have to be adaptive and resilience in always change. So making sure they know what to change his adopted, use it, they have to be Innovative because it's the only thing they have going for them against machine.

Why? Because everything of which there is enough, data, and machines are going to do for you. So in high-volume. The students can compete. So they have to be Innovative and I have to do it in a responsible way. Creating responsive professionals, you can do it in the classic school.

If you look at the pictures here, this is how much is a educational Innovation. By the way, you're looking up. It's not going to happen. They're going to be responsive. This is sending information to students and asking them to repeat it after a certain time and to be honest situation in the last two years didn't tell Peter, I don't know how about you but teams online themes teaching simply doesn't work.

So we need to change things. I'm doing differently because it's impossible to tap into the knowledge that our institutions or in participants, if you teach in this way, kind of way. And what we usually do to Make sure that people understand what's happening is called a paper plane Challenge and we usually do it before a crowd of people and get everyone in the crowd at a piece of paper with the The Challenge from creative paper plane. You have one minute. As you can see what happens.

If you say the people create a paper plane, they're going to create something in some of the planes will fly. Some of them will crash. Some of them will fly. Excellent. Some of that will fall apart and all this wisdom is created, in 1 minute, and the bigger the crowd, the more examples of good working plane trip.

If on the other hand, you do the classic teaching method and say to the students, give you a piece of paper folded like this and then fold it like this. And after a few folds, you got a paper plane, taught them, how to create one paper plane. But all this paper planes are going to be the same to all this wisdom in the crowd, just left, untouched. And this is something we need for open learning because there is so much in people with which we call kashyap knowledge. Which we want to disclose, and that's why we create Serendipity and open up the crowd wisdom.

Display sliced open, education, students are completely in charge. So agency is very urgent and the owner of the content, they use to learn the basics of learning in which level, they want to do stuff. The learning styles from then we're even let them create your own criteria and they own their own data. And data is where it gets in Portland. And how do we make sure that the students have to write vehicle for Learning and education and the Spartans come with open Innovative challenges, which are the vehicles for learning for the students.

So the Staples bring in these challenges, students can bring in challenges themselves. For example, if they want to do is start up at cetera and every semester student takes one or more challenges as his vehicle for learning. Around these challenges groups are formed of stones and the students create their own assignments, to tackle the challenge. The first thing they do is attach criteria to this assignment. What's the definition of Don Juan has done.

Well, the stakeholders involved in this and wants to have a grip of what's the assignment going to be attached? Kpix from a comprehensive framework to it. So, if you do this, consequently, you can calculate through canvas. What's the status is of the students? We will show an example of that one. I'm arranging meeting moments for that one. Deliberately the picture on the right, you see all learning space.

We will tap into that later and we use data and try to arrange meeting moments. We used to building, but we also used to stakeholders and data. Nai is where campus comes in. We have all the opportunities to facilitate the students. And one of the things that we aim, for those who use a lot of data and not as a possibility, but learning especially for the students, so we started this project.

Cool 2. 5 students are already several years ago, and he was to provide students with a sword of bronze keeper for learning. So, you have data from the like button. Smart bands stuff like that. So we just a few extra minutes already having all those, it combines and giving students, a very rich environment which group of whites Den in time and information on how they quit will change their the learning.

So I getting them boards to to learn. So that's over into. Okay, how can I use canvas or four days? So we started thinking okay. We shoot put the student in charge of their learning. So not too classical, hair, teacher course and withhold soon as in it.

So we wants to follow while they're learning of the individual students. So be totally flips canvas. So in our institutes and the lawsuits are following this whole. So along the line is that we have only one guarding course, which provides general information for stew. And teachers, of course how to proceed with a learning.

What we give every student and own individual scores at week old is the person of course, the student this owner. So he or she decides to self what would be in that. So assignments are made by students. They also make your own criteria photos of teachers or coaches are interesting people in Decor so they can make their own while learning environments in this move, because the Sooners is in charge of the course, all the information which will have you got in that the course, is there to use, but we can also use that to provide them extra Rich, dashboards where they can see how they can perform even better or asleep before me or not. So that we used to do need the canvas date outcomes, rubrics, key performance, indicators for learning, but also widely available throughout the eye are connections.

Like you can see you're in this slide with people's will follow the students performance in receiving feedback, and doing something and meaningful with the feedback. But also it was the course as well as a student and also did all the independent will happen over time and will not affect her how it was assessed. And what about the oldest information is in a person of course of the students. So in the end we're able to a shoulder poop off of what you wearing. Semester or year doing even at the whole program of a student.

So this person, of course, really is the one-way gate to evolve over time. So with this information, we are able to give students a profile, which is not fix profile, which we, as well that educators of thoughts and snowing real. Real time that you can create baseball making themselves during the course of a semester doing. We're doing the whole program and it gives specific personalized dashboard or the person's profile on how the students grew over time and how he was. She now.

Well, it's as a professional and working, i t So why we are able to show? Okay, how did you evolved as a professional but also on their professional skills like a collaboration communicating stuff like that. That's also are in this system. So it's not for sale for only RIT students but this for everybody to use and you can see on the phone you are looking at these kinds of examples to move to even get more personalized performances available for students to use. If you go a step further and it's what we already are doing now, experimenting with said, what can we do with the data, which is in the system because if you's campus, you know, okay who went in when and what did everybody work on assignments? So we were able to do some analysis knowing OK, Google who is working on what so if you have a question, almost certain topic you can ask your system. Okay, prior work on these kinds of topics or subjects.

If we get an older information, which already in the system and we are able to create a sort of heat maps on what is a nose bra off students or learner hat credits over time based on a i and a machine learning algorithms. Are we able to do an estimate of what is Students based on several same protocols on several projects, of course a great. It's overtime by experts or my coaches. They work on several assignments, based on analysis. So we can do a.

We can provide an overview of the the best topics or Compton topics and that they are a good at. So maybe you could see if you need that kind of knowledge, which is normally not we are not able to to show. We are even moving forward. It to use a Wi-Fi. Descendants 2 say, hey, I'm looking for somebody who knows something on top.

Who is it? And where can I find them? Just so, through Wi-Fi, tenants were able to even show you a location where I had this student and a teacher, of course, it's in building to get those at meetings back at the data in cameras, to extract information from Wisconsin down to connecting to chat about this data. And data in canvas can be used for other things. And one of the things we're using the system for at this time and it's an experimental prototype. It's called nudging. And the picture on the right, you see, is it is a notch.

And nuts, make sure that's the behavior. You were going to show is influenced. This is a crossing and it's painted on the road. But the impression is that it lies above. So if you coming there in your vehicle, you be a trigger it to push the brakes and don't drive too fast.

That's a notch. Notch's also known from online. I can only one left. You should buy it or other people brought us to. These are also notice and students have created a number of prototypes in which they created for personalized, based on the data.

We got, from canvas, for example, Delton and behavior against the trend in Behavior with that BS or their attendance based on set to the attendance. Inside how they are performing based on that pierce. Your behavior isn't on par. You should do something and went out looking in and noticed to making them more obscure and trying to push the student in the right direction by using these cameras data. What's with all the time? Do is arranging meeting Moments by utilizing our building.

We don't have these rooms anymore. Whether hundreds of people listening to one person telling a story. It looks like this. We have Open Spaces where I students meet westerns work with teachers are working between students and rs, amongst other things, a lot of time for a meaningful discussion about the stuff that they're doing. So meaningfulness.

It's very important and the discussion also, so it's not telling them. What is the truth about having a meaningful discussion with him. And we're not only using the inside of the building. We also using the word of God and as you can see on top of it, and of course, there is time for leisure between the students. So fruit ball game is something that needs to be there because it's a meeting place, just as the coffee machine.

The same, we do with stakeholders and then Direction they have and sharing what they are doing. So every stand-up moment of every end of the Sprint Moment. Just take all those out there and going to end this discussion with the students based on what they have built. So also this is trying to create interaction and make sure Serendipity works because they also see work of each other. So basically what we're doing is not creating one curriculum. For all the students be creative curriculum for every student at unique one.
