Learning analytics involves the measurement, collection, analysis and reporting of ‘big data’ related to learners and their contexts, with the intention of providing actionable intelligence that supports teaching and learning. At The Open University, there is increased recognition that “smart-and-pedagogically-informed” learning analytics are urgently needed to solve the student-retention problem.

Learning Analytics Toolkit & TinCan/xAPI@Work Proof Of Concept Progress

Learning Analytics Toolkit & TinCan/xAPI@Work Proof Of Concept Progress | Learning Analytics in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Thu, Jul 16, 2015 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM WST

 

Following on from our last webinar on Sharing our TinCan/xAPI@Work Journey, we give an update on creating a working proof of concept for TinCan/xAPI. Dr Kirsty Kitto will presents on the work being done in developing a toolkit, which uses xAPI to store data about student participation in learning activities designed using standard social media tools such as Facebook etc.

We discuss:

- What is status of adoption of TinCan/xAPI in the industry ? How fast or slowly is it moving now ?
- What can you realistically achieve now with xAPI ? What is the road map you need to take ?
- Are there opportunities for the corporate and education sectors to collaborate to increase adoption ?

elearnspace › Personal Learning Graphs (PLeG) | Learning Analytics in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Personalized and adaptive learning has been described as the so-called holy grail of education. The idea is not new, though its technological instantiation is getting increased attention. In a well-funded education system, personalized instruction happens when guided by a teacher as each students strengths and weaknesses and knowledge gaps are known. However, when classrooms start to exceed 20+ students, some type of mediating agent is needed in order to address knowledge gaps as it becomes impossible for a teacher to be aware of what is happening with each learner. So, while the human educator is the original (and best) personalized learning system, the current funding constraints and other resource challenges have raised the need for alternative approaches to make sure that each learner is receiving support reflective of her needs.

Welcome to our project Transforming Learning and Teaching with Practical Analytics.

 

Learning analytics take advantage of large data sets that relate to student online behaviour. These data sets are analysed to inform approaches that help staff make meaningful and informed decisions around student learning and retention, as well as strengthen student retention and success.

 

There are systems, such as learning analytics, for staff to understand and interpret student behaviour in Blackboard but what is required is understanding and training in the use of analytics and predictive analytics to make better use of these tools.

 

The project will develop a practical approach to learning analytics (what we term practical analytics) by providing feedback to academic and teaching staff to support meaningful blended delivery. The project will enable learning analytics for early intervention and support academic staff to translate data into improvement in their teaching practice. We aim to increase the number of staff capable of easily accessing and applying analytics to their teaching practice.

Reading sources in the right order can avoid you having to eat humble pie. Immediately after posting Privacy and the Use of Learning Analytics in which I questioned the ability of learning analytics to suggest appropriate interventions, I came across this article in the South African Institute of Distance Education’s (SAIDE) newsletter about a conference in South Africa on Exploring the potential of data analytics to inform improved practice in higher education: connecting data and people.

At this conference, Professor Tim Renick, Vice-President of Georgia State University in the USA, reported on his institution’s accomplishment of eliminating race and income as a predictor of student success.

New Survey from Lexia Learning Shows Educators Struggle with Translating Screener Assessment | Lexia Learning

New Survey from Lexia Learning Shows Educators Struggle with Translating Screener Assessment | Lexia Learning | Learning Analytics in Higher Education | Scoop.it
At the heart of great classroom instruction is the teacher’s ability to identify individual student needs and adjust instruction and intervention accordingly. However, a recent survey by Lexia Learning®, a Rosetta Stone® (NYSE:RST) company, suggests that significant gaps exist in teachers’ abilities to quickly access, interpret and act upon student data to support instruction. The survey, which polled more than 200 educators at the International Society for Technology in Education 2015 Conference and Expo (ISTE), indicated there is a growing need to have assessments more quickly pinpoint skill deficiencies while rapidly providing teachers with connections to actionable data for immediate instructional planning.

According to the survey, only 35 percent of the survey respondents felt that teachers at their schools had a high or very high level of comfort connecting data to instruction. The low figure suggests that the majority of teachers still have trouble using data to identify students’ problem areas and adjust instruction accordingly. When teachers are unable to make that correlation, students are unlikely to receive the appropriate level or intensity of instruction needed to drive academic success.

Report: Higher Ed Making Slow, Steady Technological Progress -- Campus Technology

Report: Higher Ed Making Slow, Steady Technological Progress -- Campus Technology | Learning Analytics in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Key findings of the report include:

*  Nearly 70 percent of respondents at most educational levels reported that technology to report, manage and collect student data has increased in the last two years;
*  The most common use of data at all levels reported by respondents was to track student performance, ranging from 75-81 percent and the second most commonly reported use, from 70-72 percent, was to improve instruction;
*  The least common use of student data, according to respondents, was in support of research to improve instruction or curriculum;
K-12 and higher ed respondents also agreed that increased training in data systems use is the most effective way to support the increased use of individual student data, though K-12 survey takers were more likely to say so, at just above 60 percent, than their higher ed peers, at about 50 percent; and
*  Respondents at all levels appear fairly comfortable with current data security, with only 23 percent or less saying that data security or privacy need to be improved to make better use of the information.

Algorithms Are Only As Intelligent As the Humans Behind Them.

Algorithms Are Only As Intelligent As the Humans Behind Them. | Learning Analytics in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Automated learning pathways are currently a hot topic in discussions on education because those pathways have the potential to personalize learning and provide timely intervention for students. With automated pathways, also known as adaptive learning, the instruction changes based on the students’ current levels of understanding. In some cases, adaptive learning is teacher-directed. In this case, teachers push new content to their students based on the learners’ previous performances. In other cases, the pathways are “system-generated” so the technology “automatically” adapts to meet the needs of individual students. The latter option is far more controversial because it elicits this question: Are algorithms replacing teachers? What if the system “misunderstands” and doesn’t provide students with the proper support and intervention?1

Does the future scare you or entice you with a smile?  Would a system generated response to your answer be more reliable than one offered by an old school (i.e. flesh and bone) teacher.


This article will help think about algorithms and online teaching and learning.

magnus sandberg's curator insight, June 28, 4:26 AM

A multiple choise test can be designed to aid learning or not, as can an adaptive learning system. The motviation and pedagogic understanding of those who make it is critical.
