Progressively Incorrect

On The Anxieties of Evidence in VAR & DRS. With Daisy Christodoulou, Jonathan Wilson and Daniel Norcross - II

A Cricketing View

In February 2020,  Daisy, Jonathan and Daniel came on the podcast to discuss DRS and VAR. A year later, they are back to reflect on the developments in both during the past year. The conservation is about the anxieties of evidence in VAR & DRS.  How to watch sports in the age of VAR/DRS? How does evidence work? Does the fact the evidence is produced in disciplined fashion (through measurement, and not just observation - (for example: consider the difference between what's available to the TV umpire on outside edges via RTS/UltraEdge/HotSpot, and what's available to the TV umpire on low catches) entail that spectators need to at least understand the difference between these two types of evidence and their possibilities? Is there an appetite for spectators to understand this? And if such an appetite is limited, then does VAR/DRS have a chance in the long run? Daniel could not join us for this episode. He is a friend of the podcast, and he has made both episodes of this particular conversation possible. Our conversation from February 2020 Daniel Norcross is a cricket commentator with the BBC's Test Match Special @norcrosscricket Daisy Christodoulou's newsletter - I Can't Stop Thinking About VAR.

Daisy Christodoulou's Teachers vs. Tech: A Book Review

Emma & Tom Talk Teaching

It's high time for another book review, and our podcast pair have reached for the latest work by Daisy Christodoulou. Tom still lives in a safe house under an assumed identity after being less than effusive about the famous Seven Myths About Education a while back, so here's hoping he can redeem himself with some much happier thoughts about Teachers vs. Tech, an amazingly timely book given the global pandemic that ensued shortly after its publication. With help from some audio extracts from the famous Cardiff Met ITE staff book club, Emma and Tom explore some of the issues raised by Christodoulou as she presents a thought-provoking look at the vexed question of where education and technology could be a marriage made in heaven, and where the pitfalls lie for those who are too wedded to the shiny toys. Our short slots all come from a single article - The Binge Breaker, published in the Atlantic. Check it out here: https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2016/11/the-binge-breaker/501122/ Meanwhile, Tom's additional wellbeing tip is to ban all power tools from campus, as yet another recording is disrupted by the sound of distant pressure-washing by the seemingly ever-present hordes of people who are drawn to fire up their machinery as soon as a microphone is switched on. Check out Tom's possibly violent forthcoming publication Lecturers vs Power Tools, available soon. -------------------- Recorded at Cardiff Metropolitan University's Cyncoed Campus on 22nd September 2020
