Create Reading Activities from Authentic Text in Minutes with Quillionz As teachers, we are constantly hearing about the wonders of AI and how it will take over education and make all of our lives easier. Well here finally is a genuine example of something we can use to save time and effort. Quillionz is an AI-powered question generator that can help you to take any text from anywhere and create a range of comprehension or test questions around it. All you need to do to get Quillionz to generate your questions is register and the find the text you want to use. You can copy-paste your text (anything between 300 and 3000 words) into the Quillionz editor, give it a title, select a domain (the domain is the area of study) from the drop-down menu and then click on ‘Proceed’. It will then suggest some keywords from the text that you can choose from.

The R Stats Package Documentation for package ‘stats’ version 3.6.0 Help Pages ABCDEFGHIKLMNOPQRSTUVWXmisc -- misc -- Shriram Krishnamurthi Though my head is often in security, networking, formal methods, and HCI, my heart is in programming languages. Over the years I have contributed to several innovative and useful software systems: JavaScript and Web tools, Flowlog and related tools, Racket (formerly DrScheme), WeScheme, Margrave, Flapjax, FrTime, Continue, FASTLINK, (Per)Mission, and more. For some of what I've been doing lately, please see my research group's blog.

75 Digital Tools and Apps Teachers Can Use to Support Formative Assessment in the Classroom There is no shortage of formative assessment strategies, techniques, and tools available to teachers who use formative instructional practice in their classrooms. Here is an extensive list of 75 digital tools, apps, and platforms that can help you and your students use formative assessment to elicit evidence of learning. We didn’t just add any old tool to this list. Here are the criteria we used for those that made the cut: Model Fitting · Data Science with R Summary: Laws look like continuous sequences of points in data, but models look like noisy clouds of points. As a result, it is much harder to reverse engineer a model from data than it is to reverse engineer a law. How should we pick the model that best describes the data? We can use inverse probability, or likelihood to find the model that is most likely to have generated the data. This allows us to fit many different types of models.

AI memories — expert systems December 3, 2015 This is part of a four post series spanning two blogs. As I mentioned in my quick AI history overview, I was pretty involved with AI vendors in the 1980s. Here on some notes on what was going on then, specifically in what seemed to be the hottest area at the time — expert systems.

10 of the Best Online Collaboration Tools for Students These 10 Collaboration Tools for Education are Boosting Student Engagement and Bringing Interactive Fun to the Classroom. In many discussions about educational technology, the conversation usually revolves around teachers and their ability to interact with the latest technology. This tendency makes sense, especially since teachers are responsible for guiding and shaping the classroom learning experience. However, as important as it is for educators to be familiar with EdTech offerings, it may be even more important to ensure students are given access to digital collaboration tools that encourage them to become active participants in their education.

Book argues faculty members should actively resist 'culture of speed' in modern academe In 2013, the jobs website CareerCast named university professor the No. 1 least stressful job, unleashing a torrent of criticism that only grew after Forbes picked up the ranking. Professors -- those with tenure and without -- said the study ignored the changing dynamics of the university, namely the increasingly administrative nature of academic work, the emerging student-as-customer model, unrealistic research expectations and 24-7 contact with colleagues and students via email. Non-tenure-track professors also pointed out that they in many cases lack all job security. CareerCast evidently learned something from the controversy -- its 2016 least stressful jobs list specifies tenured professor, at No. 3 -- but old notions about what it is to be a professor die hard.

k-means clustering The problem is computationally difficult (NP-hard); however, there are efficient heuristic algorithms that are commonly employed and converge quickly to a local optimum. These are usually similar to the expectation-maximization algorithm for mixtures of Gaussian distributions via an iterative refinement approach employed by both k-means and Gaussian mixture modeling. Additionally, they both use cluster centers to model the data; however, k-means clustering tends to find clusters of comparable spatial extent, while the expectation-maximization mechanism allows clusters to have different shapes. The algorithm has a loose relationship to the k-nearest neighbor classifier, a popular machine learning technique for classification that is often confused with k-means due to the k in the name. One can apply the 1-nearest neighbor classifier on the cluster centers obtained by k-means to classify new data into the existing clusters.

Formal Methods Wiki Formal methods are mathematical techniques for developing computer-based software and hardware systems.

Tools for teaching and learning, parent-teacher communication apps, lesson planning software, home-tutoring websites, revision blogs, SEN education information, professional development qualifications and more. There are so many companies creating new products for education, though, that it can be difficult to keep up - especially with the massive volumes of planning and marking teachers have to do, never mind finding the time to actually teach!

Georgia Tech plans next steps for online master's degree in computer science Georgia Institute of Technology is working on expansion plans for its affordable online master’s degree program in computer science, even though the program isn’t growing at the rate it first anticipated. “We will start another program,” Georgia Tech President G. P.
