Sounds of the Bazaar Emerging Mondays – the podcast

June 10th, 2008 by Graham Attwell

Great fun on Emerging Mondays radio show last night. Ignoring risk assessments we broadcast live from across Europe, with Mark Kramer talking live over a public wifi link to skype on a mobile phone from the football fanzone in Salzburg. Many thanks too to Steve Wheeler and George Roberts for their contributions. And of course to our listeners – without you there would not be much of a show.

Icecast server statistics are a little difficult to read. At a minimum we had 69 listeners – although there may have been more. Countries included UK, Germany, Austria, Netherlands, Belgium, Romania and the USA.

For those of you who missed the show – or if you enjoyed it so much you want to listen again 🙂 – here is the podcast version. We will also announce the next show very soon.


In this issue I talk about Dave Cormier’s paper on Rhizomatic learning and the community as curriculum.

Steve Wheeler reflects on the contradictions facing education institutions using social software.

Hank HorKoff from ChinesePod talks about using new technology for language learning.

Mark Kramer talks live from the football fanzone in Salzburg about how we ware using mobile devices.

Neil Oughton from Beaumont College in the UK explains how he is planning to use WordPress in his college.

And poet George Roberts reads another of his poems.

The music is by Ally Valentine from the DD10 8TW album. It is available for free download from the Creative Commons supported Jamendo web site.

    Agreed re: critical theory. Wasn’t terribly sure that it was the right venue for a critical theory discussion… 2500 word maximum for that journal 🙂 I was hoping that the D&G references would include their obvious inheritence from that particular field of thought. Would love to discuss further!

    Racial bias in algorithms

    From the UK Open Data Institute’s Week in Data newsletter

    This week, Twitter apologised for racial bias within its image-cropping algorithm. The feature is designed to automatically crop images to highlight focal points – including faces. But, Twitter users discovered that, in practice, white faces were focused on, and black faces were cropped out. And, Twitter isn’t the only platform struggling with its algorithm – YouTube has also announced plans to bring back higher levels of human moderation for removing content, after its AI-centred approach resulted in over-censorship, with videos being removed at far higher rates than with human moderators.

    Gap between rich and poor university students widest for 12 years

    Via The Canary.

    The gap between poor students and their more affluent peers attending university has widened to its largest point for 12 years, according to data published by the Department for Education (DfE).

    Better-off pupils are significantly more likely to go to university than their more disadvantaged peers. And the gap between the two groups – 18.8 percentage points – is the widest it’s been since 2006/07.

    The latest statistics show that 26.3% of pupils eligible for FSMs went on to university in 2018/19, compared with 45.1% of those who did not receive free meals. Only 12.7% of white British males who were eligible for FSMs went to university by the age of 19. The progression rate has fallen slightly for the first time since 2011/12, according to the DfE analysis.
