The Sounds of the Summer with Sounds of the Bazaar LIVE

June 5th, 2010 by Graham Attwell

Next week sees the launch of our summer sseason of the Sounds of the Bazaar LIVE internet radio shows. We are going to be braodcasting live from workshops and conferences throughout Europe.

The first show will be from the Joint Technology Enhanced Learning summer school in Ohrid, Macedonia. Together with Maria Perifanou, I am running a  workshop on Internet Radio in Education. And we will be broadcasting live on Wednesday 9th June at 1800, Central European Summer time, 1700 UK summer time. Just click in your browser on and the programme will stream through your MP3 player of choice.

This is what the workshop is about:

The workshop will focus on the use of internet radio in education. There will be three sections to the workshop: 1) An exploration of the use of media (and particularly internet radio and television) for learning and shared knowledge development
This will include looking at issues such as:
a) The appropriation of media
b) The change from passive media to interactive Web 2.0 supported media and the changing distinctions between broadcaster/program planner and listener/consumer.
c) How media such as radio can support the development of online communities
d) The use of media to bridge contexts and provide spaces for exploration and shared meaning making.
2) A practical hands on session on how to plan develop and broadcast live internet media. This will include storyboarding, interviewing, making jingles post processing and using the technology for live broadcasts.
3) The third session is planned to take place in a lunchtime or evening session. This will be a live 45 minute to one hour broadcast “Sounds of the Bazaar – Live from Ohrid”. It is hoped to involve all summer school participants in the broadcast. The broadcast will be publicised in advance through iTunes, Facebook, Twitter and other social software platforms. It is also intended to use the broadcast to link to other researchers in TEL from around the world not able to be at the summer school. The programme will be recorded and made available through the Summer School web site, the Mature project web site, the Pontydysgu web site and through iTunes.”

The second of the summer’s live shows will be from the PLE conference in Barcelona. We haven’t finalised the time yet but the programme will probably be in early evening on July 7 or 8 (or who knows, both). And in August we are planning a series of live shows from the European Conference on Educational Research in Helsinki. Full details will be available in a couple of weeks.

As always podcast recordings will be made available following the shows. But don’t miss out on the live fun. Tune in on Wednesday for the first of the Sounds of the Bazaar Summer 2010 special broadcasts live on internet radio.

    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.
