A popular running joke about software engineers (specifically coders) in India is about how there are times in their lives where he/she will have to work the entire night ("night-out") to write code. One of my few night-out was last Saturday night (Sunday morning).Yi and I, along with a couple of our friends participated in the Columbia Data Science Society's annual data science hackathon which was held from Saturday (21st) evening to Sunday (22nd) afternoonThe event started at around 7:00PM on Saturday where we were welcomed to the hackathon and a co...
As part of the research for Search and Recommendation System in the research team, finding an efficient, legal, and dynamic technique for obtaining the metadata of scholarly resource plays an essential role. In this blog, we will provide some useful resources about text mining for scholarly resources. Additionally, we will discuss the text mining project in EdLab.Resources that may be helpful Please check out this

When it comes to self-directed learning (SDL), learners themselves decide which information and skills to acquire. They base their decisions off on the hypothesis created by them. This process is known as hypothesis generation, which is defined as the “formation of candidate explanations or models of a target domain, which then guide reasoning, prediction, and exploration” (Markant, 2018, p. 1). However, this process may be biased due to myriad factors such as perceiving information through one’s own cultural lens, inability to consider a different point of view, prior knowledge and experi...
I am working on a conference paper on real-time locating systems (RTLS) in innovative learning spaces recently and find this concept of ubiquitous learning useful to vision innovative learning activities at the Smith Learning Theater.
As you have heard, Hui Soo and I are at the Transitions 18 Conference on next generation learning spaces.  The conference is being held at Canyon Valley High School in Phoenix.  To get things started Hui Soo sprung into action capturing photos. I took a more meta perspective in capturing the capturing process.
At the D&R today I shared that it might be useful for EdLab/Library staff members to become more familiar with some of the literature on learning (Patrick echoed a similar thought). Here are some resources on learning, broadly defined, to help us get started:Natriello, G. (2007). Imagining, seeking, inventing: the future of learning and the emerging discovery ...

In a recently published book, Mohammad T. Alhawary (2018): The Routledge Handbook of Arabic Second Language Acquisition, an interesting chapter is dedicated to a research that investigated whether Vialogues is effective in supporting pre-service Arabic student-teachers to transfer pedagogical theory to practice. The chapter in the book is titled Effect of Using a Collaborative Video-based Self-evaluation Activity ...
I am attending a panel session at the Education Leadership Data Analytics Summit 2018. The panel is titled, "The Multiple Facets of Education Leadership, Evidence Use, and Data Analytics." Here are the speakers: Madhabi Chatterji, Professor of Measurement, Evaluation and Education, Teachers College, Columbia Uni...

I attended a colloquium today at the Human Development Department of TC where Prof. Alyssa Friend Wise from NYU came to present her research in using learning analytics for online discussions in MOOC. Her research has a high relevance to Vialogues because we have been researching how to evaluate the productivity of video discussions in Vialogues. Here I'm sharing some notes and thoughts about her colloquium.She looked at five types of data: demographic, performance, activities, artifacts, a...
