EDS - Community of Practice

To post messages and resources in the EDS Community Of Practice please login or signup

Welcome to the Essential Digital Skills (EDS) Community of Practice.

We have changed the EDS Community of Practice so that it is more like a social media channel with a series of tagged posts and lots of opportunity to add photos and videos.

We have brought across some of the posts from the old discussion forum and all of the resources, so there are already lots of useful tips and ideas, schemes of work and resources for teaching which you can search on and filter. Above all, you will find this a friendly, easy place to discuss your perspectives on teaching, managing or assessing essential digital skills courses with colleagues.

The History of Western Philosophy

Lewis Carroll supposes that 'q implies r' and 'q implies not-r' are inconsistent, and hence infers that p must be false. But as a matter of fact, 'q implies r' and 'q implies not-r' must both be true if q is false, and are by no means inconsistent. The contradictory of 'q implies r' is 'q does not imply r,' which is not a consequence of 'q implies not-r.' Thus the only inference from Lewis Carroll's premisses (1) and (2) is that if p is true, q is false, i.e., if Carr is out, Allen is in. This is the complete solution of the paradox.

Thus I and O require that there should be at least one value of x for which x is an S, i.e., that S should exist in sense (b). I also requires that P should exist, and O requires that not-P should exist. But A and E do not require the existence of either S or P; for a hypothetical is true whenever its hypothesis is false, so that if 'x is an S' is always false, 'All S is P' and 'No S is P' will both be true whatever P may be.

There's an interesting video about the challenge of EDSQ E3 from @Diane Cooper-Ramsden from Barnsley ASCLS who participated in our EDS Case Studies.  Diane feels that E3 is a high level to reach for some of their learners. In the Essex ACL case study @Alexandra Bates explains that they offer non-accredited courses to prepare ESOL learners for EDSQ.

Also, the thought piece from Emma Langlois from Manchester Adult Education, makes similar points about needing a 'bridging course' to help learners reach E3 level.
