2/6 K-12 education has been trapped and distorted for a century by the allure of “getting into an elite college.” @michaelbhorn @dianetavenner #ClassDisrupted #ReopenToReinvent
3/6 Khan and ASU are creating a global online high school for under $10K/year that will destroy the cult of letter grades and Carnegie hours, yet still get their students into the top universities.

1: To connect every school & to mitigate the educational resources, first we need to find every school. Using AI and satellite imagery we helped @UNICEFinnovate @Gigaconnect and @ProCoWorld put find 23,100 unmapped schools in eight countries across Asia, Africa, and South America
2: A few highlights throughout the projects 1) we’ve been using supertile to train #machinelearning that achieve higher model performance. Training model with #Kubernetes engines and #Kubeflow allowed us to run model training and experiments faster We trained six country models (Kenya, Sierra Leone, Kazakhst
3: 2) Our open-sourced tool, ML-Enabler allows us to run #AI model inference in eight countries within a week. This is an efficient way to scan through millions of tiles and look for given school features.

I guess I'll say something about this.

1-Sometimes I think we should change the name active learning to learning agency or something. It's not really about movement, though that can be a part of it. It's about learners having agency to make decisions about their learning experience.
2-You can have students moving all over the classroom and it's not active learning. Students who are sitting still can be very active participants in their learning experiences.

My university just announced that we are shifting all courses #online for several weeks due to #coronavirus. I spent the last month on jury duty & as a result had to unexpectedly move my class online with no notice. I've got some thoughts (thread): #AcademicTwitter #CovidCampus
Before you do anything else, take a minute & look at your syllabus & course schedule. One of the things I realized was that in an online setting there were a number of topics that made more sense in a different order than in the face-to-face scenario I originally laid out. (2/16)
Whatever your course topic is, at some point, you are going to stare into that webcam & think about lecturing for an hour. Don't do it. If you do decide to record a video lecture keep it short. Like under 10 minutes - although the research says they should be even shorter. (3/16)
