Know Thy Students: Providing Aggregate Student Data to Instructors (EDUCAUSE Review) | EDUCAUSE.edu | Learning Analytics in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Key Takeaways

- Learner-centered approaches to higher education require that instructors have insight into their students' characteristics, but instructors often prepare their courses long before they have an opportunity to meet the students.

 

- To address this dilemma, we developed the institutional

Student Profile Report, which informs instructors about the demographics, enrollment history, and general academic performance of the students in their upcoming classes before the start of the semester.

 

- Survey results indicated that instructors found the report interesting and useful, and our analysis of grade outcomes found that the report did not introduce bias in letter grade assignment.

The rise and rise of learning analytics

The rise and rise of learning analytics | Learning Analytics in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Learning analytics is the study of student behaviour through patterns in their digital world: how often, when and where they log on; the digital resources that they use; the web sites they visit; the social media platforms that they use. At the present time, this is a nascent field of interest in most colleges and universities. But over the next few years, the analysis of the digital trails that students leave as they move through the digital world will become central to curriculum design, learning support, assessment and quality assurance. Two recent reports by Jisc – British education’s digital solutions provider – set the stage for these changes, and point to some early work that needs to be prioritized if these developments are in the interests of students and enable better education.

That learning analytics are set to take off is hardly surprising. After all, its common cause that many of us allow the new virtual behemoths access to our every keystroke in return for the advantages that this brings us. Amazon uses our search and purchasing patterns to suggest what books we might also like to read on the same subject. Google scans the content of every email to select the advertisements that are most appropriate to our needs. Weather apps use our location to tell us whether the sun will shine on us today. Students use all these services, and many more; they are not surprised if their universities use their personal data in similar ways. Indeed, Jisc’s work shows that students are – at present – relaxed about all this.

Will big data jobs go unfilled? - eCampus News | Learning Analytics in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Data experts convene to create profile of the “big data specialist” position, which is predicted to be in high demand if data skills remain untaught

Students at both the K-12 and university levels should learn how to handle and interpret big data, but to do this, educators at both levels must be comfortable using and teaching about big data.

Big data is quickly becoming one of the most important fields, and workers who are able to handle, analyze, and interpret data will be in high demand in the workforce. And this need is critical in education, from students who must know how to use data as part of learning, to educators who should be able to interpret student data.

Humans 2.0: Seeing Ourselves Anew in ‘Algorithmic Cascades of Data’

Humans 2.0: Seeing Ourselves Anew in ‘Algorithmic Cascades of Data’ | Learning Analytics in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Sensors are cheap and abundant. They’re already in our devices, and soon enough, many of us may elect to carry sensors in and on our bodies, and embed them in our homes, offices, and cities. This terrifies people, Jason Silva says in a new video.

Who hasn’t heard of Big Brother or feared the rise of the surveillance state? But Silva says there’s an upside.

As the world is reduced to “algorithmic cascades of data” he thinks we’ll get what Steven Johnson calls the “long view,” like a microscope or telescope for previously invisible information and datasets.

Billions of sensors measuring location, motion, orientation, pressure, temperature, vital signs and more—each of these will be like a pixel. Seen up close, a modestly flashing primary color. But at a distance, individual pixels dissolve. Discrete points will smooth out into a contiguous image no one could have guessed by looking at looking at each pixel alone.

Exactly what image will our sensors reveal?

Milena Bobeva's curator insight, April 17, 5:15 AM

It is a 'win-win' if we measure the right things with the right instruments. Giving the end user the ability to interrogate the data in ways they want should balance some of the bias that might come from eliminating important context characteristics. Then the NSS could be balanced off with other operational data....
