Developing Use Cases can be fun

September 1st, 2009 by Graham Attwell

I have been working on developing use cases for the Mature-IP project on the use of mobile devices for learning and knowledge maturing. And I had a lot of fun! Here is my use case:

“A researcher is at a project meeting. One issue at the meeting is how mobile devices might be used for learning and knowledge maturing. It is agreed to create develop use cases around the idea.

The researcher decides to consult with different experts and to record the results. He uses the AudioBoo application on his mobile iPod touch to interview one of his colleagues on the project, Johannes Magenheim. He adds a title “Mobile Learning” and two tags – ‘mobile’ and ‘learning’. The Boo is recording is instantly uploaded to the AudioBoo webs site. It is displayed along with a Google map showing where the recording took place (http://audioboo.fm/boos/59817).

The recording is also shown on the front page of the researchers won web site – based on an open API developed by Audio Boo and displayed in a widget in wordpress (http://www.pontydysgu.org/). It is also automatically posted to twitter – GrahamAttwell AudioBoo: Mobile Learning http://boo.fm/b59817. Ten minutes after the recording is made three people have commented on it on Twitter.”

    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.
