The 4 Levels Of Learning Analytics

The 4 Levels Of Learning Analytics | UVic ePortfolio Users | Scoop.it
Using data to drive learning outcomes isn’t a new concept, really. For as long as teachers have been giving students assessments, the assessments and results have been used by both students and teachers (even if only loosely) to determine how to move forward. What needs to be reviewed more? What was covered/studied well? Learning analytics takes this concept and kicks it up a notch. Well, more like a thousand notches, especially if you’re considering things like adaptive computer based testing that changes as students use it.

Via Patric Lougheed
Tim Hopper's insight:

The idea of continuous and real time feedback loops to help students learn sounds exciting if harnessed in the right way by instructors.

Interesting use of modernistic language i.e. covering outcomes. It seems the more advanced we become the more we regress into the modernistic paradigm.

Some critical insights but wondering about the purpose of ePortfolio from this persons perspective.  Students I had that chose to do ePortfolio using Mahara all stated how easy it was and how much fun it was to build it and share with friends.  Maybe it is the choice aspect and idea of recursively developing oneself as a teacher.

Savvyfolio.net also has guidance to take  a learner through the steps to building a rich eportfolio while understanding the benefits.

Could be used to help with support materials to encourage good use of Mahara in your institution.

Learning Analytics: Threats and opportunities

Learning Analytics: Threats and opportunities | UVic ePortfolio Users | Scoop.it

As institutional managers, administrators and researchers are well aware, any practice involving data collection and reuse has inherent legal and ethical implications. Most institutions have clear guidelines and policies in place governing the collection and use of research data; however it is less common for institutions to have legal and ethical guidelines on the use of data gathered from internal systems (Prinsloo & Slade, 2013). As is often the case, the development of legal frameworks has not kept pace with the development of new technologies.

UVic needs these guidelines so that we can learn how to use analytics to benefit student learning.

Are Teachers of Tomorrow Prepared to Use Innovative Tech?

Are Teachers of Tomorrow Prepared to Use Innovative Tech? | UVic ePortfolio Users | Scoop.it

By Katrina Schwartz |

 

With a new generation of teachers coming into the work force, there’s a discrepancy between what principals expect of teachers-in-training and what they’re actually learning in school.

A new Project Tomorrow report surveying principals concluded that they want to hire new teachers with creative ideas about how technology can be leveraged to create authentic and differentiated learning experiences. But student-teachers report that their tech training focuses only on simple management tools. At the same time, the report concludes that those who have the biggest influence on new teachers — veteran educators —  don’t always embrace new ways of using technology to engage students.


Via Dennis T OConnor
Tim Hopper's insight:

We need reflect on how ed tech shifts our pedagogical practices. Minimum is individualized learning.

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, December 6, 2014 8:29 PM

Aspiring teachers may need to look beyond the basic training received in a school of education.  A new teacher who knows how to learn with technology should be able to leverage that understanding into teaching skills... especially if they are self-directed learners. 

Elaine J Roberts, Ph.D.'s curator insight, December 18, 2014 7:17 AM

I think most future teachers are ill-equipped to use technology effectively primarily because they don't have the resources nor the opportunity to learn how to use technology--"innovative" or otherwise--in their own learning.


"Principals want new teachers to know how to use technology to create authentic learning experiences for students (75 percent) and how to leverage technology to differentiate instruction (68 percent) before they apply for a position at their school." It doesn't help that many principals might think they know what these terms and phrases mean but they might know really know the implications for making sure teachers have the best possible skills and the best possible resources.

Be part of the pilot of this exciting new plugin, download the code and register to particpate.

 

If you are interested in issuing your badges in Moodle also, notice that there is also a plugin for Moodle (same github).

 

This is great news from Mahara Project and will be well received with the huge interest in #openbadges.
