Today at a NLT Visualized meeting I learned about a Library where you can check out people instead of books. While trying to learn more I came across these libraries with no books.

Happy reading.

I have argued for a while that I think the target audience for mSchool should be teachers. It makes sense given our institutional context and our deep knowledge of the education space. This story from the Atlantic further highlights the fit between educators and online education.

Check out this story in Fast Company titled, "How to Store Your Data for a Million Years.

Some highlights:

- How can we use DNA as a storage mechanism?

- In 2012 biologists encoded a book on DNA

- ""You could take all the information of the world and store it in a few grams of DNA."

- Another challenge is making sure future civilizations can decode the data.

Title: How Can We Learn from a Reading Tutor that Listens?

Abstract: Project LISTEN's Reading Tutor listens to children read
aloud, and helps them learn to read. It displays text on a computer
screen, uses automatic speech recognition to help analyze a child's
oral reading, and responds with spoken and graphical assistance
modeled after expert reading teachers but adapted to the limitations
and affordances of the technology. The Reading Tutor logs its
interactions in detail to a database that we mine in order to assess
students' performance, model their learning, and harvest
within-subject experiments embedded in the Reading Tutor to compare
alternative tutorial actions. This talk will illustrate a few of the
Reading Tutor's tutorial interactions, student models, and
experiments.
