The title is of course misleading, because it wasn't UNESCO that called for a shakeup, it was its Director General, Audrey Azoulay. And while she does say "we must rethink education" it's not really a shakeup. Her...

Another introduction to web3. The core idea of web3 is that you can publish articles on a decentralized network, recording ownership and links on the blockchain. This has naturally led to a frenzy of speculation about how web3 is the future of web monetization. But you can have a...

It's interesting to see the pundits all weighing in on web3 these days. I'm not sure what has prompted it - nothing really significant has happened in the last few months; it's just blockchain and tokens and NFT and IPFS as usual. A lot of the commentary has been quite critical - see, for example, Doug Belshaw commenting of a reecent paper that "There are so many issues...

De chicha y nabo es una expresión idiomática que significa ‘de poca importancia, insignificante’, como en este ejemplo del autor asturiano Rafael González Crespo: Nos hicimos una foto de grupo, las fotos así unen mucho, en la plaza más emblemática del mundo soviético pero sin apenas luz y con una máquina de chicha y nabo. …

To be frank, I give very little weight to cognitive load theory. It is based on the premise that learning consists of pushing information through a very small opening, called 'working memory', and ultimately into a much larger store, called 'long term memory'.

Were I a student in his class, I would have been one of the ones objecting to ungrading.

A lens onto fake news

If you haven't been following web3 and distributed learning technologies for the last few years, this hype may be appearing out of nowhere, evidence of a frenzied "must-be-building ethos is rampant in the tech industry." Had we moved more...

Probably one of the first words we get to learn as second language learners are swear words. Knowledge of these words comes in handy when you want to know if someone is saying something objectionable to you. But have you ever wondered what swear words would be like in sign language? Like spoken languages, there … Continue reading "Deaf People Show How To Swear In Sign Language, And It’s Hilarious (16 Examples)."
