U Wyoming Spurs Blockchain Development with Hackathon ‘Stampede’ — Campus Technology

David Brodosi higheredFor the second year, the University of Wyoming has hosted a multi-challenge hackathon focused on blockchain. The “Blockchain Stampede,” part of the university’s College of Engineering and Applied Science WyoHackathon, is intended to help highlight the state’s commitment to blockchain technology.

During the 2018-2019 legislative session, the state passed 13 separate blockchain bills, covering property rights, banking services, authorized custodians for digital assets and setup of “sandboxes” for financial innovators. Shortly after, state officials reported that 200 new companies had registered in Wyoming with names indicating their involvement in blockchain technology. Various blockchain courses have been introduced at the university, and its money-raising foundation is among the first to accept donations in bitcoin.

UCI Launches 2-Year Study on Value of College Education — Campus Technology

David Brodosi highered higher education The University of California, Irvine has begun tracking, surveying and analyzing of a group of undergraduate students to better understand their experiences inside and outside the college. Along the way, the researchers involved in the two-year project will be creating tools that other institutions may use to assess the student experiences at their own campuses.

The “Next Generation Undergraduate Success Measurement Project,” being run by the School of Education, has three research threads:

GREAT BIG STORY – Website

GREAT BIG STORY

greatbigstory.com

Great Big Story’s mission statement reads as follows: “We believe there is magic in the world and it’s our mission in life to help you discover it. We search for stories showing a sense of optimism for the world…because goodness can grow through the smallest cracks in the sidewalk.”

How they help us discover the world’s magic is through video: short, professionally produced videos about people and phenomena all over the world, stories that will pique your curiosity and give you the sense of wonder about the world. Videos can be browsed by themes like Human Condition, Planet Earth, and Flavors (yep, all about food), or in curated playlists. There’s one on being a travel writer, one about a people in the great outdoors, and one on the accidental invention of the best snack food ever.

Video is becoming a well-respected form of “text” that can be consumed and analyzed as deeply as any print text, so collections like these should become a part of your school’s library of options for classroom materials. One word of warning: Although the content on the site has been rated safe for all audiences on YouTube and Facebook, the videos on Great Big Story were not made specifically for a student audience, and some material will not be appropriate for younger viewers. Teachers should preview videos before sharing them with students.

Supporting Underprepared Students in the Online Classroom

David BrodosiEngaging students through a computer screen requires a unique approach to pedagogy and innovative course design.  The feeling of “getting it right” typically involves a good deal of testing and modification given the wide array of design formats and technology tools available, not to mention the varying needs of students, many of whom are underprepared for online learning (Bettinger & Loeb, 2017).

Common Student Challenges

In online courses, certain student challenges tend to come up time and again, which disrupts learning or impedes completing coursework on time. Some of these behavior profiles include:

  • Ghosting, students who disappear entirely or who don’t reach out to the instructor, even when they are performing poorly
  • Students for whom everything is seemingly negotiable, including due dates
  • Students who wait until the last minute to complete assignments, noticeably jeopardizing the quality of their work
  • Those with a post-deadline emergency who contact their instructors with an excuse for a late assignment after the deadline
  • Freeriders, or students who ride in the wake of their hard-working teammates, contributing as little as possible to the group effort

Many of these problems are widespread; indeed, several of these issues align with the pattern of online student personality types described by Judy (2018).

Connecting Students From Around The World With Virtual Exchanges

David Brodosi In a time when headlines are dominated by stories of how tech is stoking division, I find myself looking instances of how the internet can bring humanity closer together. I was at the Aspen Ideas Festival conference over the Summer and ran into a program that was refreshingly positive. The Stevens Initiative is a modern upgrade of student exchange programs, using the web to bridge students from across the world.

Florida lawmaker seeks to spend 80 percent of education funds in the classroom

Screen Shot 2019-09-24 at 7.29.57 PMFor the second straight year, state Sen. Manny Diaz Jr. is pushing one of Gov. Ron DeSantis’ key education campaign platforms — dedicating 80 percent of the state’s main school funding appropriations on “classroom spending purposes.”

Diaz’s SB 360, filed Monday, is identical to a bill the Education Committee chairman filed in the 2019 session. That version did not have a House companion and never received a single committee hearing.

IoT Invasion Threaten Higher Ed Security?

David Brodosi IoTIf you thought BYOD was a challenge, say hello to IoT.

Much like the bring your own device (BYOD) phenomenon, untold numbers of internet of things (IoT) devices appearing on campus networks are shining a bright light on the need for heightened cybersecurity. While IoT and IoT systems have the potential to bring big value to higher education institutions, that value will not be realized unless institutions adopt a thoughtful security strategy.

Higher education thinks differently about IoT than enterprises do: unlike enterprises, colleges and universities operate discrete networks. Higher education institutions typically include residential networks for students, guest networks, and a campus or business network.

On the residential and guest side, it’s often the “wild, wild west” where anything goes. Columbia University in New York, for instance, operates a wide-open wireless network that spills into public spaces around the campus. At any given time, thousands of independent devices could be locking into the network.

Survey: More than Half of Faculty Believe Classroom Tech Increases Student Engagement — Campus Technology

David Brodosi classroom In a recent survey, 54 percent of faculty respondents said they believe adding more technology to their classroom would definitely increase student engagement. And another 35 percent felt adding more tech could possibly do so. The survey, conducted by Censuswide on behalf of learning management company D2L, polled 500 university professors across the United States on their use of technology, students’ expectations, institutional support for tech and more.

Overall, 92 percent of faculty said their adoption of technology was on par with or ahead of the curve compared to other educators at similar institutions. Male respondents were significantly more confident in their technology use than females, with 49 percent of men considering themselves ahead of the curve compared with 39 percent of women. Yet when asked about six specific uses of technology for teaching, women reported more technology use than men in nearly every category: communicating with
