Analytics: Changing the Conversation (EDUCAUSE Review) | EDUCAUSE.edu | Learning Analytics, Educational Data Mining, Adaptive Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

We live in an information culture. We are accustomed to having information instantly available and accessible, along with feedback and recommendations. We want to know what people think and like (or dislike). We want to know how we compare with "others like me." Just as analytics powers Amazon.com, Netflix, TheRestaurantFinder.com, and Yelp, it can support tools for student empowerment.

The New Frontier: Lisa Daniels on the Challenges — and Opportunities — of Building an Analytics Strategy | Learning Analytics, Educational Data Mining, Adaptive Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it


The assistant vice president for analytics at Excelsior College explains the value of training and the importance of diverse skills.


EDTECH: HOW SHOULD COLLEGES EVALUATE WHETHER THEY NEED A CDO OR EQUIVALENT?

 DANIELS: I don’t think every college has the need or capacity. I’m thinking of the small, liberal arts college that has a fairly small population. They already have a lot of face-to-face time with students. They should look at basic statistics to inform decisions on some level, such as keeping track of their student success rate and whether certain programs are doing better than others. But they don’t necessarily need an elaborate process like I’ve described. In terms of whether colleges should hire an analytics expert, they need to look at the top strategic challenges they are facing. Is it something that analytics could inform and drive decisions on? You have to sit on a large amount of data to have that level of program. Colleges probably have someone with an institutional research capacity doing analytics on some level, but it’s hard for me to say where the tipping point would be.

Artificial intelligence is the next giant leap in education - Raconteur

Artificial intelligence is the next giant leap in education - Raconteur | Learning Analytics, Educational Data Mining, Adaptive Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it


Glancing around school classrooms in 2016, it’s easy to miss just how far technology has transformed learning over the last decade. The desks, whiteboards and rows of chairs are the same, but so much else has changed that can’t be seen.


A third of Britain’s schools are asking students to bring their own tablets and laptops into the classroom now, coding has been on the national curriculum for three years, and more and more education is happening outside school through apps and digital services.


But these changes are just the start. Artificial intelligence (AI) is the next giant leap in learning and, according to those working in the field of education and technology, we haven’t seen anything yet.

Ethical Use of Data to Predict Outcomes Requires a Plan, Support Infrastructure -- Campus Technology

Ethical Use of Data to Predict Outcomes Requires a Plan, Support Infrastructure -- Campus Technology | Learning Analytics, Educational Data Mining, Adaptive Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Institutions are using predictive analytics for a wide variety of operations — strategic enrollment management, early-alert systems, recommender systems and adaptive technologies, to name a few. Using sophisticated data systems can be beneficial for understanding students and guiding them through college, but with these powerful tools come a few pitfalls, for both the student and the institution. Therefore, institutions should understand the purposes of using predictive analytics, as well as the unintended consequences, like human biases and unethical usages of data.

Those findings and more can be found in a new report from New America, a nonprofit, nonpartisan think tank and civic enterprise based in Washington, D.C. “Predictive Analytics in Higher Education,” written by policy analysts Manuela Ekowo and Iris Palmer, outlines five guiding practices to ethically use predictive analytics. The Hechinger Report reported that the information was released this week at SXSWedu in Austin.

Postsecondary Trending Now: Predictive Analytics in the Spotlight | Learning Analytics, Educational Data Mining, Adaptive Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Many in the higher education community are intrigued by the value of leveraging institutional analytics to improve student success, and have been for a while. “Institutional Analytics in Higher Education,” a 2016 EDUCAUSE ECAR report, asserts that the aspiration to use analytics to make a difference for students goes back at least a decade.

Could the right combination of software and process reform dramatically improve persistence and completion rates for students — especially students from minority groups or low-income backgrounds? Many institutions are still not quite at the point of investing the resources needed to realize the potential of analytics for student success. That said, the current academic year has seen pioneering projects and early successes draw the media spotlight.

Role of Machine Learning in Education With Examples

Role of Machine Learning in Education With Examples | Learning Analytics, Educational Data Mining, Adaptive Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Machine learning is the science of getting computers to act without being explicitly programmed.

Educators today are open to try new technology in education. As witnessed, integration of technology makes learning and teaching efficient on both ends. Thus, there is rising likability of machine learning in the education. A part of Artificial Intelligence, machine learning is on rising scale of adoption. Other than education, we are so much around this technology that we may not even know. The recommendations from e-commerce that are so much similar to our preferences is all Artificial Intelligence that is working. Machine learning is so pervasive today that you probably use it dozens of times a day without knowing it. Many researchers also think it is the best way to make progress towards human-level AI. It is all about innovation and improving the life of the millennial and beyond. If you have heard about automated card driving, you already know how machine learning can improve the life of the people.

In education, it does have its own impacts. In this post find out how machine learning is improving the education. Pointers mentioned below indicate the use of machine learning in education along with platforms that are using this technology.

Therefore, with this we are training in the effective practices of expert learners in relation to Web 2.0 tools and environments. On the basis of a qualitative study, our aim will always be directed at demarcating a 2.0 lifelong student skills profile with a view to identifying a planning tools support – quality training that we will conduct developing PKM skills – in non-experts. This PKM model is focused on basic competencies and skills of a higher order (meta-skills) and identifies the conditions that allow this and the competencies that foster effective PKM management so that knowledge and learning can always be connected in a network.

However, in social learning we constantly find a duality: knowledge has to compete with a sea of data that must be analysed to be subsequently made known as open and implemented in learning and work. Due to all this, the learning process is like a journey that takes us from the neuronal synapse, which helps us manage information and acquire knowledge, to the purging of this knowledge in our social relationships and its subsequent use in data analysis, which we can now do with greater productivity and quality through big data.
