Building a new developer workforce: How coding is helping an entire region retrain for the future


Damian Radcliffe is a digital analyst, journalist, and researcher with 20 years of experience. As Middle East nations look to pivot from petro-chemical to knowledge-based economies, skilling up the region's IT and tech workforce is growing in importance. While high-profile spending on infrastructure and startups tends to dominate the headlines, a number of efforts designed to build IT skills and capacity are also underway, with coding being one area seeing considerable investment. According to Salim Abid, Google's regional lead of developer ecosystem in MENA, Google trained more than 700,000 developers across MENA in 2021, 35% of whom were women. Participants were trained by Googlers and Google Developer Experts; local experts that joined events organised by Google Developer Groups, Women Techmakers communities, Google Developers Students clubs and other local organisations.

Is Artificial Intelligence Replacing Teachers?


Artificial intelligence is quickly becoming an indispensable tool in the classroom. From helping students with homework to collaborating with classmates on projects, teachers are finding uses for AI beyond just checking homework assignments and reading texts aloud. With AI, teachers can tailor lessons to students' interests, create engaging activities, and even create virtual lessons to help students learn in more challenging aspects of a subject. We explore the pros and cons of the AI-only classroom, explore the pros and cons of teaching students with AI, and explore the best ways to integrate AI into education. Artificial intelligence has been around since the mid-twentieth century when it was used to help with tasks like word searching and chess playing.

Council Post: The AI Learning Revolution And The End Of One-Size-Fits-All Learning


Markus Bernhardt is the Chief Evangelist at Obrizum, pioneering deeptech AI digital learning solutions for corporate learning. Google Director of Research Peter Norvig famously stated in his keynote speech for the Association for Learning Technology Conference in 2007 that if you only had to read one research paper to learn about learning, it would be Benjamin Bloom's The 2 Sigma Problem: The Search for Methods of Group Instruction as Effective as One-to-One Tutoring. To aid his preparation for the keynote, this brilliant piece of advice had been given to Peter by his friend Hal Abelson, an educator and professor at MIT. In Bloom's well-known and often-cited paper, the outcome of an experiment is reported comparing the efficacy of three types of teaching: the conventional lecture, the conventional lecture with regular testing and feedback, and one-to-one tuition. Using the "straight lecture" as the mean, Bloom found an 84% increase in mastery above the mean for a "formative feedback" approach to teaching and an astonishing 98% increase in mastery for one-to-one tuition.

Machine Learning : The Subset of Artificial Intelligence
