Loved this week's Snap Judgement podcast. I think it was a repeat, Teacher Teacher, stories about teachers that have changed lives. Be sure to check it out.

Thanks Bill Jerome and +Phil Hill ! Last week I posted a question to + asking folks who work at the intersection of learning and technology how they describe what they do. I've struggled with how to succinctly explain my job in ways that someone not connected to this field would understand. I've fallen back on edtech, or faculty technology consultant in the past, but they've always seemed hollow of meaning. Learning Engineer, however, is something that speaks to me and that I can use going forward!

I had a similar reaction to this as I do with most of the Big Data articles I read nowadays. Cool, mind blowing, scary. So many conflicted thoughts! Anyone working at a company that are employing these tools/practices? What impacts have they had on your work environment?

+Jeremiah Parry-Hill mentioned this article yesterday in a hangout and even though it was posted a while back I thought it was worthwhile posting again. Looking back at some of the shares from early March, some thought of this as an attack on Hackathons, I disagree. The title oversimplify's +Jake Porway  message: Hackathons have the potential to be great jumpstarts to finding creative solutions to problems, but if the problem isn't well defined, it ends up being a waste of everyone's time. This lesson isn't limited to data science. Education, software development, marketing, healthcare, the list is long. It doesn't matter how many programmers, UX Designers, etc. you throw at a problem, if you haven't spent time defining the problem.
