Educators monitor students’ #performance at every stage of the educational process to understand their #progress. One of the reasons to continue with the practice is to be able to offer as much #support as students need. This task is rather challenging, as human observations tend to be subjective. We can easily misinterpret the signs that students give us. Some prefer #tests as a more objective #assessment method. However, test performance depends to a great extent on the amount of stress learners experience while doing it. How about delegating this task to a more objective judge? Scientists are ready to introduce #AI into the process. It can monitor and assess students performance, analyse the data and #predict how much support each learner needs. What do you trust more, AI or standard procedures?

Researchers and educators from different parts of the world report #modern students to experience problems with #concentration. It influences their ability to better understand the information provided. Many blame the Internet and its shorter texts for that. Some believe #urgent measures are required while others state we need to accept a new norm of #literacy for the #digital age.

Do you believe in #superstitions? Different believes, even though they are far from being rational, play an important role in human #culture. They used to guard daily routines and #unite people despite the fact they often exploit human fear of death and bad luck. However, nowadays people tend to pay less #attention to superstitions. Some businesses even use them as a distinctive feature to #attract clients. Here is an example from #London.
How superstitious are you? Do you perform any rituals before or during an important #event?
