A good post that summarizes different uses for machine learning, and when it isn't ideal.

Yes, we need to find ways to provide funding for a high-quality education for our citizens. Where are areas that we can reduce costs without demoralizing staff and diminish learning opti0ons for students? I believe part of the answer lies in intelligent content and curricula, freely available and completely customizable.

There is a larger discussion here, about what, exactly, people need to learn in order to attain professional success (ignore personal flourishing for the moment, sigh). What foundation is required? What are the chunks of profession-specific information that lead to success? How should these be packaged?

Some good insights for the future of learning content in this in this article about dealing with the algorithmic complexities of optimizing delivery routes.

The EducationNext study released today provides interesting information on attitudes/beliefs related to Higher Education and its value.

"There is evidence to suggest that graduating from any school with particular majors could outweigh the benefits of attending a "top" school with a less valued degree; researchers found students who graduated from open-access schools in the UT system with majors that lead to high earnings have a leg up over graduates from selective schools with low-earning majors — architecture and engineering graduates from open-access schools in the system had median incomes more than 61% higher than all graduates of selective colleges."

+Laura Gibbs Do you have a good definition of fable that you use with your students and in your teaching? I'm using a fable to illustrate Form, Structure, and Language in a lesson and wanted to make sure I was using something that you would agree with :-)

Had a great dinner with +Laura Gibbs and +Stacy Zemke last night. It was so much fun for the three of us to be together again in person, fifteen years after we worked on the same team at OU. We still may not agree on everything (imagine that), but we absolutely agree on the importance of learning in the world and the need to do more for/with our students. Such amazing people and I have been/am so lucky that are part of my experience.

I really enjoyed this post by +Alan Levine on Creative Commons, licensing, sharing, and openness. Not for nothing, there are many ways to be open in our teaching, and many different ways content can be used/reused.

My nephew, Cody Reynolds, is a trauma nurse in Dallas and helped start a program at hospitals there called Capes4Kids. It's amazing what a community can do.
