The Future of Education – What will it Look Like?

2021.12.03 03:35 mSpooky The Future of Education – What will it Look Like?

  1. Solving the Main Problem
The main problem in education is an economic one. Unlike most other human activities, in education labor productivity does not grow over time. A thousand years ago, a lecturer stood in front of an audience in Oxford or Bologna and told his lecture. For a thousand years, the productivity of a lecturer has not changed at all. And this is a problem because, in all other industries, labor productivity is constantly growing. For a unit of time, we can make more cars, more clothes, and more food. As a result, people have better access to food, clothing, information, but not to a high-quality education.
However, we have found a solution that can fix this problem. We have found a way to quickly increase the quality and scale of education based on the number of people who will receive it – open online courses.
Thanks to open online courses, we can take the best teacher in the world, the conditional Aristotle, and extend his course to an infinite number of people, hundreds of thousands, millions of people around the world. Per student, the cost of such a course will be symbolic. This is a true revolution that will allow us in the next 10-15 years to provide very high-quality education to a huge number of people.
  1. Transition from Passive to Active Learning
Scientists have been studying learning for ages, but have discovered very little. One thing they established for sure is that only active learning is effective. The problem is that the classical form of teaching at school and at the university is passive. A lecture, a teacher’s story about something is ineffective. Everyone knows about this, but universities and schools continue to build on the old principles.
These days the fundamental thing is happening – an old lecture type of teaching is being abandoned. Open online courses are just the first step (albeit primitive). They are no longer passive by definition – in addition to video lectures, and interactive tasks, there are also forums for students to collaborate and share knowledge and opinions.
Educational mobile applications are a new emerging trend. Next will be virtual reality, or the ability to view interactive content, for example, molecular schemes, geographical maps, space maps, DNA structure, etc. Along with virtual reality comes an augmented reality – when we can display an image in real space through a smartphone, a special application, or augmented reality glasses.
  1. The Third Trend is Data
Many of you must have heard the expression that data is the new oil. For education, this is perhaps even truer than for many other industries. We don’t know much about how people learn. We do not know exactly how people leaf through a textbook, how they prepare for lessons, how they prepare for exams, why they know something, and have gaps in something else. Furthermore, we do not even know if they are listening to a lecturer (a person can look very closely at a lecturer, but think about something completely different).
As education becomes an information technology, we can see detailed statistics and analytics about how people watch a particular lecture. We will see at which second people stopped watching the lecture, and analyze what exactly has gone wrong. After that, we can make a new, improved version of the same lecture, distribute this material among the target audience and see if the new version is watched with more attention.
But this is just the beginning because data collection opens the door to the holy grail of education –personalized learning. Why is it so important?
When we collect a bunch of data, when we know who learns what, who does not learn something and why – we can create an optimal learning experience. An AI-enabled program can offer people what they don’t know yet, check only what they didn’t finish learning last time, and not slow them down on what they already know very well. A program, or a combination of program and a person, will be able to move at a pace that is comfortable for a particular student (slow or fast learning) and always maintain his/her interest at a peak level.

2021.12.03 03:35 Safyire A "data wiki" that covers timing windows and other important data for rhythm games

Sorry if this kind of thread doesn't belong here, but I see a Promotion flair so I figure it may be fine.
I'm currently on the works in creating a wiki that acts as a "database" of rhythm game timing data. I always found it annoying to look up information on, for example, what the Critical timing is in SDVX, so I'm hoping to have a place that collects that data. Here's a small example of how timing windows would be displayed.
I have some wiki experience but I pretty much have none for administrating one, so I ask everyone here: what would you expect in a wiki like this? Right now, the vision I have of this wiki is it not only detailing timing data in games, but also listing the very specific gameplay quirks you see in some games (for example, the weird mechanics involving timing in Project Diva and everything about holding notes in that game)
Right now, this wiki is also called "OtogeBase" (as Otoge is usually what rhythm games are referred to in Japanese) but I'm not sure if that's too alienating, as I will also allow rhythm games from all countries to be listed there.
Honestly, this whole thing is just an idea I had for a long time, and I'm just hoping for some input (and hopefully some contributors as well!) from at least a few people here and in other places. Thanks for taking the time to read this!

2021.12.03 03:35 raik003 Help with pest problem identification

Hi all! Just posting here for some help. My friend's plants started having these spots and he is very worried as the spots are spreading to most of his plants. We tried googling the issue but we couldn't be certain what is causing the spots (e.g., fungal or bacteria?) and what is the best course of action. Here are some photos of his plants.
Any help or tips will be greatly appreciated...!

"Items Shards are a new crafting ingredient that enables players to craft an item with a specific Attribute Bonus on it while still being able to use a Craft Mod to guarantee a perk. Item shards are guaranteed to drop from Expedition Bosses and have a chance to drop from Elite Chests in Expeditions and Elite Landmarks."
being able to force a perk and an attribute removes a lot of RNG

2021.12.03 03:35 SourGrapesOnIce Should I even try to date right now?

I literally can’t go an hour without thinking about my most recent ex, and would honestly take them back in a heartbeat if given the chance.
I know that this is over, and that I’m wasting my time thinking about this, so the temptation is definitely there to just get some rebound booty and try to make something of it. That said, I don’t even feel close to 100% at the moment, and worry about causing more harm to myself, or worse, the person I end up with.
In the current dating field, I am a mine just waiting to be stepped on, or so it feels. Even though I initiated it, this breakup has uniquely affected me, and if I’m honest, I haven’t ever rebounded before. Nobody has made me care for them so much.
What’s the play, here? Do I just bide my time or hope for the best?

2021.12.03 03:35 jt505001 Girlfriend broke up with me out of nowhere to make a great past few weeks even better

I was finally getting to a point where it seemed like everything was going pretty good in my life; relationship, promotion, decent money, and then it all started to come apart. My now ex girlfriend hates driving out to my house because she has to go on the highway, so I always drove there and we either left from her house or stayed there. I got into an accident a couple weeks ago and the garage is taking forever (waiting on parts mostly) and then my girlfriend slowly seemed more uninterested whenever we hung out. She went from saying “Please never leave me” one week to breaking up with me through text the next week. She felt the need to drag out the whole thing too instead of just saying she wanted to break up. It started with “Can we talk?” And when I asked what it was about I just got a “I think you know”. I thought everything was going great. First girlfriend to meet me parents and siblings (my 7 year old brother said he loved her 5 minutes after meeting her and my mom was trying to include her in Christmas. Keep in mind I don’t live with them on top of that). Literally every time something good happens to me, I get fucked over and it’s gone. I’m sick of it. Then later the same day, I found out my stepbrother is knowingly dating a girl I used to date/had a toxic friendship with, so I should get used to seeing her again. I know I have a ton of stuff to be grateful about, but it’s hard to not think about and focus on the negative.
