Human to Computer Interaction 1 – 0 Human to Human Interaction

With a system like the ledger we push further into a world of online communication and platforms to support interaction and learning. The evolvement of a system like this raise concerns around the consequences of technology and how the use of it potentially could harm our ability to interact with people around us IRL, making us only comfortable to interact when we’re online or in a virtual space.Screen Shot 2016-06-22 at 11.58.37 AM

However some people think that a system like this could enhance our social ability as we become truly global and get to interact, learn and teach people all over the world.

What happens to quality and higher education?

One issue that has been raised quite a lot is the concern for in-depth and expertise knowledge. To gain Edublocks it seems more beneficial to teach topics that are generally considered interesting on a broader level and thus attract more people, than focusing on deeper learning within a specific field. The consequences here would be that no one digs deeper into certain topics or become experts in their fields. Screen Shot 2016-06-21 at 9.12.59 AM Screen Shot 2016-06-21 at 9.08.21 AM

Another concern related to the lack of depth in knowledge is the accuracy of the knowledge itself. What does quality assurance look like in the ledger system and how are you held accountable for your teaching methods?
