I went for a run the other day, as usual, with my Garmin watch. It tracks my times, distances and routes to give me a record of my running. Overkeen, I started running before the watch had found a GPS signal and it missed a chunk of my run.
Consequently I missed my weekly mileage target. If my performance depended on the system recording distances accurately, I’d be a bit miffed and would have to put extra effort in to meet my goal.
We need to be aware of these risks with learning. There’s a growing risk that relying on technology to record everything we do means if it fails, we’ll be under-marked, and in some compliance roles, that might be serious.
