    The Romanticism of Technology

    in Entrepreneur

    In today's edition of Tech Innovators, Deb discusses the way technology has been "romanticized" in the minds of consumers, so that they feel they MUST HAVE the latest gadgetry, even if it means going into debt. What is this motivation for having the latest, greatest gadgets? 


    Many new tech items are primarily marketed on a "social status" platform than actual value. Think before you buy and consider the cost of over purchasing for the hottest tech items. There is no way anyone will ever truly keep up with "The Jonses," because technology is in a constant state of flux.


    Quote: "The only 'constant' in technology is change!"

    Education Canaries: Can data rich systems predict and prevent failure?

    in Education

    One of the significant promises of big data in education is to predict and prevent student failure. Of course we want to see learners succeed and data can help us with that as well, however, catching students before they get lost or even drop out is essential. Some visionaries see technology as driving learning through increasingly intelligent prompts, assessments of learning, and directing learners to ever more complex and advanced concepts… all driven by models for learning driven by student generated data. More recently many educational leaders have a more holistic view of data and recognize that while we need to educate the whole child, we need to also look at information about the whole child to diagnose and address learning deficiencies and help students on a path where they can be successful. Beyond their inherent interest in helping children, educators and the institutions in which they work are being held accountable to show learner progress. In this show we will explore the many different kinds of data that can be used to monitor student progress, identify those who require assistance, and the systems that make sense of those data to support educators and parents in driving student success.

    Barbara Clements,  Consultant at ESP Solutions Group

    Bill Meade, Data Science Director at Neal Analytics
