My child loves anything to do with anatomy and has wanted to become a surgeon for the last three years. She asked that Santa bring her a ‘surgical kit’ every christmas and warned me that it could not be a plastic version for children. Naturally I feared for the safety of my dog and ensured her that it wasn’t something children were given or even adults for that matter. These days I am grateful that I can keep my child engaged in the function and physiology of our bodies through interactive apps that promotes learning in a fun yet educational way. Thanks to technology I can keep her aspirations alive and encourage her to work hard on her dream.
This Facebook post caught my attention as it highlights the extent to which individuals have let their addiction to recording their every moment on smartphones. We have become a culture that explores, experience and captures life through a lens to record the memory rather than be present in that particular moment of time and space. All in the attempt to create a post or an image via social media that may attract a high volume of ‘likes’ and validation from followers. The selfie phenomenon has made us ignorant to our surroundings. Here the post describes why selfies and yoga poses are not the way to honor the memory of 6 million dead Jews. #mscedc
Scientists have developed an algorithm to create the world’s most detailed pregnancy scan to date. It really is incredible….This popped up on my Facebook (FB) feed through my browser history and the recommended videos by the activity of FB ‘friends’. It’s like when you want a specific car, you then suddenly spot that make and model everywhere. I feel like everyone around me is pregnant and the algorithms are showing me babies and their activity is influencing my recommendations of videos associated with pregnancy. Arrrggghhh, I feel pressurised into having another baby. Can algorithms influence peer pressure???

When live TV goes wrong…or should we say right? This moment for me was magical! It brought a smile to my face as the Professor tried to remain composed and professional while his cooler than cool toddler swaggers in to a live broadcast. Whether on a conference call, taking a virtual class or involved in a study group Skype chat, our lives can interrupt the moment. Our reaction is what makes us human. This video went viral in a matter of hours and although it brought a lot of laughter and joy, I couldn’t help but feel sad and disheartened at how cruel and judgemental people can be on social media. Online comments were full of vile accusations and assumptions, offering advice on how the individual involved should have handled the situation. Technology allows individuals to work from the comfort of their home and may even capture a moment of their ‘home’ life, which for me is endearing. We should value the advantages it brings rather than scrutinise because we can replay and dissect ones actions.
Daphne Koller is enticing top universities to put their most intriguing courses online for free — not just as a service, but as a way to research how people learn. With Coursera (cofounded by Andrew Ng), each keystroke, quiz, peer-to-peer discussion and self-graded assignment builds an unprecedented pool of data on how knowledge is processed #mscedc
In Marshall’s paper he proposes the “ethical issues with MOOCs as the monetisation strategies of the various providers are developed” (Marshall 2014, p.256). Whether commercial or research based, consent and ownership of students work raises complication in how the data is processed, thus, in turn can cause limitations and constraints on validity. Marshall (2014) also cites Burman and Kleinsasser (2004) on the conflicting loyalties between the teacher role, researcher role, the research process, the institute and the learning of the students.

Most of us are on the Internet on a daily basis and whether we like it or not, the Internet is affecting us. It changes how we think, how we work. Gracie and I have just giggled at this video that I found . Great animation and visual artefact that helps us digest the science behind how our brains are affected through overexposure. #mscedc
