Top Ed-Tech Trends of 2012: Education Data and Learning Analytics

Top Ed-Tech Trends of 2012: Education Data and Learning Analytics | Learning Analytics, Educational Data Mining, Adaptive Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Part 7 of my Top Ed-Tech Trends of 2012 series

I chose “data” as one of the top trends of 2011, and the opening line of that article reads “If data was an important trend for 2011, I predict it will be even more so in 2012.” Indeed. There’s a great deal that happened in 2012 that’s a continuation of what we saw last year — enough that I could probably just copy-and-paste from the article I wrote back then:

The Formation of a New Discipline

It was a sentiment repeated several times throughout the Learning Analytics and Knowledge 2012 conference: this could the beginning of a new discipline. It’s something I’ve heard at recent big data events too (namely at O’Reilly Media’s Strata conferences): we are forming a new field, one with new tools and new practices and new objects of inquiry.

SocialLearn Research Blog » PhD: Learning Analytics for Learning Power

SocialLearn Research Blog » PhD: Learning Analytics for Learning Power | Learning Analytics, Educational Data Mining, Adaptive Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

A key next step in this research programme is to harvest and analyse data from the traces that learners leave as they engage in social digital spaces, and to explore its relationship to other data sets and data streams. This PhD will therefore fund a technically strong candidate to design, implement and evaluate “Learning Analytics for Learning Power”. The project will deploy iterative prototypes in authentic use contexts, considering OU platforms as a starting point (e.g. SocialLearn [9]; Cohere [10]; EnquiryBlogger [11]), but open to data streams from new kinds of digitally instrumented interactions (e.g. from Pervasive Computing; Augmented Reality; Quantified Self). A possible outcome is an analytics architecture open to diverse forms of input, grounded in a theoretically robust framework, generating visual analytics with transformative power for reflective learners.

In their discussions over the past year, the EDUCAUSE IT Issues Panel touched several times on the issue of analytics and strategies on how best to implement analytics in higher education. Discussions ranged from implementing analytics to improve core administrative and business functions to how best to implement analytics in a predictive sense to ensure student success in academic programs.

 

In answering five questions, the following IT Issues panelists provided their thoughts on how analytics can improve higher education and how best to implement analytics:

Good to have a peek inside what's going on, eh?  Ready to take the plunge?

Daniel Tan's curator insight, July 4, 2014 9:42 PM

The greatest contribution of  MOOCs to education will not be the  demographic  and geograhic reach it claims to provide, but the disruption it creates on the limitations and previous beliefs of the instructivist pedagogy model. Data and learning analytics will document how the student, and more specifically,  how the brain learns.  The truism that "(s)he who speaks the most learn the most" will be based on data Collected and analyzed.  For now, we content that in teaching a class, that teacher has  learned the most. :)

"This course will provide a generally non-technical introduction to learning analytics and how they are being deployed in various contexts in the education field. Additionally, the tools and methods, ethics and privacy, and systemic impact of analytics will be explored, presenting a broad overview of the current state and possible future directions of the field.

 

Capturing and analyzing data has changed how decisions are made and resources are allocated in the fields of business, journalism, government, military, and intelligence. Through better use of data, leaders are able to plan and enact strategies with greater clarity and confidence. Data is a value point that drives increased organizational efficiency and a competitive advantage. Analytics provide new insight and actionable intelligence. Companies such as Microsoft, IBM, Google, and Amazon are investing heavily in technologies and techniques to help individuals and organizations make sense of and unlock the value within big data..."

Learning analytics tools can track far more data than an instructor can alone. For high-enrollment classes in particular, LA provides a support structure that monitors student progress and offers timely guidance to students whose academic under- performance might otherwise go quietly unnoticed. At their best, LA applications can identify factors that are unexpectedly associated with student learning and course completion. This information can be valuable both to students, in how they approach learning, and to faculty, in how they structure curricula.

Episode 95: ‘Learning Analytics’ Could Lead to ‘Wal-Martification’ of College - Tech Therapy - The Chronicle of Higher Education

"A number of experiments are using new kinds of data – such as how many times a student has clicked on an e-textbook or logged in to a class Web page – to measure and guide learning in new ways. That could improve the student experience, but it could also end up dumbing down college, argues Gardner Campbell, director of professional development and innovative initiatives at Virginia Tech."

 

I suppose it begs the question - what are effective ways of utilising the availability of these new data? - my first thought is that they may assist in identifying students who are finding difficulty.
