Anyone else doing some weekend reading of the #Gutenberg #accessibility audit report?

wpcampus.org/2019/05/gutenb…

#WordPress #a11y A screenshot of the cover page for the Gutenberg Accessibility Audit Report. Gutenberg is the new WordPress editor.
I’m going through and taking notes. The report is fascinating.

Seriously taken aback at page 5 of the UX report.
Time for the last document, and main event: the 329 page long-form technical report describing the logged issues in detail.

Thread: The @OpenClassrooms story: Teaching tomorrow’s skills w/ @m_nebra, Cofounder 🔖
We were honoured to have Mathieu at @_TheFamily with @emiliebmaret!
Here are the key stories & learnings of this fireside chat 👇
#edtech #education #MOOC #onlinecourses
1/ Openclassrooms started in 1999 as a side project out of frustration bcs he struggled finding resources online to make a website.
The courses were always free.
They monetized 1st through ads but it prevented people from learning.
So they focused on a subscription model.
2/ About moving from learning skills to learning jobs 👉
They listened to people. When they wanted books, they did it. Projects? Mentorship? Diploma? They did it.
@m_nebra also always did things by himself (giving online courses, being a mentor).

We’re here at the Conrad Sulzer Library having a conversation about #StudentDataProtection . raiseyourhandaction.org/parentprivacyc…
Meeting a great group of parents impacted and/or concerned about #StudentDataProtection.
We’re working on legislation at the state level. We need to talk about pushing for more awareness and guidelines at the district level -esp with new mayor and alderpeople this spring.

There is more education innovation happening at my local YMCA than in this class of YC edsurge.com/news/2019-03-2…
The education community needs to make a “call for startups” that articulates the many real problems that need solving. Who will join me in co-creating this?
Ok, since you asked, here are my current top 10 #edtech problems awaiting solutions. Please amend!

Ich versuche mich mal an einer #Reflexion zu #StudentCentred, #Quadrigadebatte & #LehreU15 (via Twitter verfolgt) & würde mich besonders über Reaktionen von @dghd_info, @lehrehochn, @fzs_ev, @HRK_aktuell freuen! (Wird etwas länger! 🙏) #Qualitätspakt #QPL
1/ Für mich ist die zentrale Frage, wie #GuteLehre und #Lehrentwicklung institutionalisiert und curricular bzw. im #Qualitätsmanagement der Institute, Fakultäten und #Hochschulen verankert werden können. #Projekt_nexus #LehreU15
2/ Dazu sind m.E. verschiedene Dinge nötig: 1. Die dauerhafte Verbesserung des #Betreuungsverhältnisses/der #Personalausstattung in den Instituten (besonders in den stark nachgefragten Fächern #Projekt_nexus #LehreU15

Diversity is therefore not merely a diversity of audiences and channels. As we transition from a broadcast communications model to a networked, interactive one, a much more complex mode of communication from diverse communities is crucial. #edtech blue collar men coloured in yellos...studends walk in black suits
Knowledge creation within society requires that our institutions contain the diversity of perspectives needed to listen, as well as to communicate effectively. #edtech

At the centre of this is building a stronger future for a greater diversity of people who want to build careers around knowledge production. #edtech

Tonight’s topic is “reading logs,” because we’re going to collectively diminish the love of reading if they’re continually implemented in a forceful manner.

Shout out to @MelaninandLit for this one.
Well, let’s hope your scholars are actually “reading” in their classes. Some schools have negated central texts for excerpts. Some have taken that route because they can’t afford whole books. Some are just mirroring the excerpts seen in state tests ALL YEAR LONG.
Some educators tell me, “My kids don’t read/like full books anyway.”

Um...one, I’d like you to look up the term generalization. Secondly, you also need to listen to @JasonReynolds83 on bringing a scholar to the page. It’s the gospel: google.com/amp/s/www.pbs.…

Le ministre @jmblanquer, l'homme qui voulait en finir avec le pédagogisme, se rend donc à #Ludovia15.
Les échanges seront sincères et chaleureux.
Comment expliquer ces improbables et courtoises papouilles ?
En serrant la pogne des pédagogistes, le ministre se lave les mains du cambouis libéral tout en graissant la patte des idiots utiles.
Mais c'est bien le marché de l'éducation, cette nouvelle conjuration des imbéciles, les #edtech, qui fournit le lubrifiant.
Bref, on sait comment tout cela finit : on s'embrassera, sans la langue pour ne pas trop choquer, mais en se mettant une petite olive là où vous savez.
Et les #edtech pourront s'astiquer le membre en matant le film connu de cette #PornPédagogie

“We have this idea that #machines can liberate us from repetitive tasks, but there are different templates to use this #technology...” @PauloBlikstein #AIED2018 @AIEDconf | @uclknowledgelab @EDUCATEldn @AIConf2018 @brussels_ai @digityser @results4dev @CEInnovations @audreywatters
“Another element in this template, is that #learning happens at different paces... it changes from person to person ... but the awareness of the limitations has somehow been lost over the decades” @PauloBlikstein #AIed @AIEDconf #personalizedlearning @uclknowledgelab @EDUCATEldn
But...here’s the problem

“There is a big problem with this template that we have been using for decades ... in using this map...” @PauloBlikstein

1/ I spent the past couple months trying to understand how and why #edtech companies are trying to measure, monitor, and mold students' feelings, mindsets, and ways of thinking. You know what that means...thread incoming.
2/ First, let's look at some of the companies & researchers doing this work.

edweek.org/ew/articles/20…
3/ Like @AlgebraNationFL. A team of academics, funded by an $8.9m @IESResearch grant, have used the online platform to anonymously collect the clicks and keystrokes of 200,000 Fla. students. The goal: teach the software to pinpoint when kids feel happy, bored, or engaged.
