Sometimes “work” research is a great distraction from the terrible news out of Houston in Tech&Learning’s weekend newsfeed. Sebastian Turbot (@sturbot) at Forbes.com looks at the positive impacts of artificial intelligence in education: “No machine can replace human teachers but it can save them from crumbling under pressure.” Susan Schorn at Inside Higher Ed is not as rosy blogging about plagiarism detection software: “How many education technology companies freely share their data and outcomes? How many instead deem it ‘proprietary,’ and insist that we simply accept the claims of the vague bar charts in their marketing materials?” Finally, the results of this Ozy poll offer some insight into students’ take on edtech: “Despite this overwhelming majority maintaining that ‘humans need human interaction to learn,’ the same percentage also agreed that technology companies have some role to play in the classroom.” —Kevin Hogan, Content Director
