saw this video shared on moe channel in a feed:
(02:33-) “one thing that is going to be very important is to…learn to learn, in which as you are learning the theory, you are also applying it to a set of problems that are very real. The computers will know the fact, and the computers will be much better at executing the procedures than you will ever be.”
translating it to the two aspects of language learning (cultural content & skills):
“one thing that is going to be very important is to…learn to learn, in which as you are learning the language skills, you are also applying it to a context that is very real. The computers will know the language, and the computers will be much better at executing the skills than you will ever be.”
“one thing that is going to be very important is to…learn to learn, in which as you are learning the cultural contents, you are connecting them to a context that is very real. The computers will know the fact, and the computers will be much better at recalling the contents than you will ever be.”
what are we (both school/teachers, and parents) teaching today that is preparing our children for the world they are living in tmr? #food4thought
saw this on fb the other day (:

…actually now is somewhat backdated, cos google has since made classroom freely available to all, from Apr 26, 2017 onwards, as noted in this blog post (:
in other words, anyone with a personal google account can use the system to start managing learning (cf. LMS). school teachers are however encouraged to use Classroom by enrolling the school in the G Suite for Education. this would allow your to more conveniently manage your classes of students.
btw, thanks to PS for first highlighting this news to us. enjoy (:
“do you know … …” or “you do not know …” or “你（知）不知道 … …?”
these are epistemological questions. but such philosophical question often appears in our day-to-day encounter. if i/we use the above question in attempt to tell someone that s/he is in the wrong, and the problem and/or consequence that leads on from there, i/we should first ask ourselves:
“did i/we do anything to enable this person to know (what i assumed s/he should know)? 我们做了什么让他知道了呢？”
often, what we know is limited by the access to (privileged) information. if i have not maintained high level of transparency, nor have frequent open conversations, i cannot expect others to know (what i assumed s/he should know).
in short, the lessons here are:
1. conversation/dialogues (cf. 1-way monologue) are important to attain transparency
2. don’t ask the 1st question if i have not done the 2nd.
