The meta-program

Clark Quinn

A couple of weeks ago, I posited what I thought might make the basis for a sustainable degree program.

How well did you communicate your learnings from that experiment on recursion in learning programs? Curriculum and the pedagogy can be refined, and in fact are interleaved.

A few of the robots I saw were potentially useful tools to promote interesting and engaging pedagogy, but some seemed to do nothing more than follow a black line around in circles.

I just wish we were able to build and program robots when I was in school.

Disrupting Education

Clark Quinn

Some thoughts I lobbed in another forum (lightly edited): Mark Warschauer, in his great book Learning in the Cloud (which has nothing to do with ‘the cloud’), pointed out that there are only 3 things wrong with public education: the curricula, the pedagogy, and the way they use tech; other than that they’re fine. For example, just because you learn to do AI programming doesn’t mean you’re ready to be an AI programmer.
