    FE Insights | Adam Sloan on the top tech to enable learning | What is the Apprenticeship Levy

    (bright music) – Types of technology I would recommend would be social media sites. All our students are on Facebook for example, and they upload all their pictures, all their work they’re doing, and they share all the knowledge with each other. So I find that using social media sites is beneficial for our students. (dramatic music)

    MHS Alumna Pursues On-The-Job Education

    Hi, my name is Jessica Griest, and I’m doing a culinary apprenticeship with Hershey Entertainment & Resorts. Right now, we’re at the Hershey Country Club here in Hershey, Pennsylvania. This property has one freestanding restaurant, and then we do banquets for anybody that wants to do events here. Today I’m steaming and then I’m shocking vegetables, which is also called blanching. I seasoned it with salt and pepper and a little bit of oil once they came out of the oven They get their education through working. Also, they have one day a week they go to classes. It’s very much hands-on education. They get to see what we do,…

You are required to begin organizing your artifacts, work samples, reflections, and other examples of learning for courses you are taking in the EDTECH program, creating an electronic learning log.

    Learning Behavior with Captions

    >>In this classroom demonstration, Jane Elliott and her students reveal just how easy it is to alter objective reality and substitute an arbitrary alternative conception of the world. No matter how superficial the differences between people may be, once those differences become indicators of superiority versus inferiority, of acceptance versus rejection, of worthiness versus worthlessness, they become institutionalized. Rules are made, norms are created, and expectations are formed about how people of different status ought to behave. [background talk] Fortunately, however, positive expectations can change a person’s perspective of a situation just as dramatically as negative expectations. [Music] Psychologists call this the Pygmalion effect after the George Bernard Shaw play…

    Build a Game AI – Machine Learning for Hackers #3

    Yes I beat it, did that impress you? If i built an ai to beat this for me would that impress you Hello World, welcome to Sirajology! In this episode we’re going to build an AI to beat a bunch of Atari games. Games have had a long history of being a testbed for AI ever since the days of Pong. Traditionally, game programmers have taken a reductionist approach to building AI. They’ve reduced the simulated world to a model and had the AI act on prior knowledge of that model. And it worked out for the most part. I guess. Not really. But what if we want to build…

    Computer Games Empower Deep Learning Research | Two Minute Papers #105

    Dear Fellow Scholars, this is Two Minute Papers with Károly Zsolnai-Fehér. What are datasets? A dataset is typically a big bunch of data, for instance, a database of written letters, digits, images of human faces, stock market data that scientists can use to test their algorithms on. If two research groups wish to find out whose algorithm performs better at recognizing traffic signs, they run their techniques on one of these datasets and test their methods on equal footings. For instance, the CamVid dataset stands for Cambridge-driving Labeled Video Database, and it offers several hundreds of images depicting a variety of driving scenarios. It is meant to be used to…
