"La fabrique des corps" Des premières prothèses à l'human augmenté. Héloise Chochois #transhumanism design

Your mind is software. Program it. Your body is a shell. Change it. Death is a disease. Cure it. Extinction is approaching. Fight it.

Eclipse Phase (2009).

Transhumanism is defined as: The intellectual and cultural movement that affirms the possibility and desirability of fundamentally improving the human condition through applied reason, especially by developing and making widely available technologies to eliminate aging and to greatly enhance human intellectual, physical, and psychological capacities;
and the study of the ramifications, promises, and potential dangers of technologies that will enable us to overcome fundamental human limitations, and the related study of the ethical matters involved in developing and using such technologies.

Nick Bostrom, in Transhumanism and Transcendence: Christian Hope in an Age of Technological … (29 September 2011), p. 11.

M-Write. Writing-to-Learn Pedagogies at Scale. Machine Learning in University of Michigan @UMichiganAI

Hoy traemos  a este espacio a M-Write. Writing-to-Learn Pedagogies at Scale, de la Universidad de Michigan.
Esta herramienta digital, M-Write, de la Universidad de Michigan, utilizará el aprendizaje automático (machine learning) para calificar los ensayos de los estudiantes.

Y nos lo presentan así: 

About the Initiative

Tags: DIG, Digital Tool, Interdisciplinary Collaboration

Writing-to-learn pedagogies engage students by asking them to explain what they know, to interact with one another through peer review, and to learn through a revision process. Sweetland Center for Writing Director and English Professor Anne Gere and Chemistry Professor Ginger Shultz have developed methods to enable faculty to infuse writing into large gateway courses on campus and tested them in the College of Literature, Science and the Arts and the College of Engineering. Now they are joining forces with the Digital Innovation Greenhouse to develop M-Write: a digital toolkit supporting the application of writing-to-learn pedagogies at scale. M-Write will combine conceptual writing prompts, automated peer review with rubrics, natural language processing, and personalized feedback using ECoach to create an infrastructure for writing at scale. This will enable the implementation of content-focused writing activities to better engage students from diverse disciplines in the subject matter and increase their comprehension of key concepts.

In 2015, the M-Write team was awarded a $1.8M grant from the Transforming Learning for a Third Century (TLTC) program through the Third Century Initiative to support the development of this tool and the practical use of writing at scale through the use of technology, with the goal of reaching more than 10,000 U-M students by 2021.

The data revolution in education. Informe @UNESCO #BigData

The Data Revolution in EducationHoy traemos a este espacio este informe de la UNESCO, de 81 pp., .titulado "The data revolution in education." que nos presentan así:

The ambitious Agenda for Sustainable Development and Education 2030 requires countries to report more and better quality data to track progress and inform policymaking on education and learning. But how will this broad data agenda be met?

As the Inter-agency and Expert Group Sustainable Development Goal indicators (IAEG–SDG) meets in Ottawa from 28-31 March, the UIS has released a paper that calls for a data revolution in education built on the foundation of national statistical systems and supported by a global compact for monitoring the global education goal, SDG 4.
The Data Revolution in Education, produced by the UIS as a background paper for the Education Commission, includes a set of recommendations for producing and disseminating high-quality education statistics for planning and monitoring progress toward education targets. 
The report calls for changes across three broad areas that address both the supply and demand sides of national education information systems.
Enabling environment: National statistical organizations require an enabling environment underwritten by more funding, investments in technology and skilled personnel, and greater efforts to overcome the fragmentation of education data and evidence sector across government agencies.
