Opening: Dispositional Learning Analytics

In a great example of the LearningEmergence convergence of ideas, we are developing an approach to modelling learning dispositions, based on the educational research underpinning the ELLI instrument for Learning Power: Buckingham Shum, S. and Deakin Crick, R., Learning Dispositions and Transferable Competencies: Pedagogy, Modelling and Learning Analytics. Proc. 2nd International Conference on Learning Analytics & Knowledge (Vancouver, 29 Apr-2 May, 2012). ACM: New York. pp.92-101. DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.1145/2330601.2330629 Eprint: http://oro.open.ac.uk/32823. See also our earlier blog post and the LAK12 replay The most recent work on this, which picks up the challenge identified at the end of the above paper, is the question of whether it is possible to generate an ELLI profile automatically from learners’ incidental data traces.

Teaching for Effective Learning: South Australia Department for Education and Children’s Services

Visiting Fellow Chris Goldspink presents the research and practice from the Teaching for Effective Learning Programme in South Australia at the Centre for Systems Learning and Leadership at the Graduate School of Education, University of Bristol in March 2012. The Teaching for Effective Learning Framework was developed as a part of ongoing enquiry in South Australia into the nexus between how teachers design and orchestrate learning and learner engagement. The framework was developed through consultation with international researchers, as well as local leaders and skilled practitioners, about the essential elements of quality practice. The framework provides means of measuring quality of practice through systematic observation of teaching practice and been demonstrated to be valid and reliable in this role. It[…]

Ngambara Fimityatit: Learning Together in Daly River

These murals of a Barramundi and a Brolga have been painted by the community in Daly River, Northern Territory, Australia, to remind everyone about how the community and the children in St Francis Xavier Catholic School are learning and achieving together.  The project, led by Miriam Rose Bauman and Julianne Willis, draws everyone in the school community together to engage in learning and change.  The vision of the project is summed up in the title Ngamara Fimityatit – which means When we learn together, sharing + living the same language for learning, we will be empowered to create a new story for our future… It’s about bringing together local traditional knowledge systems with 21century ideas about learning, in order to empower[…]

Learning Powered Learning Analytics

Ruth and I just gave this talk here in Vancouver, introducing the learning analytics community to ELLI as an approach to modelling dispositions and attitudes in a computationally tractable form, and different rationalities for validating learning analytics. This is also the first publication (see below) which details the functionality of the Learning Warehouse platform, and how it changes traditional educational research. Buckingham Shum, S. and Deakin Crick, R. (2012). Learning Dispositions and Transferable Competencies: Pedagogy, Modelling and Learning Analytics. Proceedings 2nd International Conference on Learning Analytics & Knowledge, 29 Apr – 02 May 2012, Vancouver, British Columbia, CA. ACM Press: New York. Eprint: http://oro.open.ac.uk/32823 Abstract: Theoretical and empirical evidence in the learning sciences substantiates the view that deep engagement in[…]
