Learning to Learn Analytics

Learning Analytics is a rapidly emerging field, asking the question: Can we discern meaningful learning from the digital ‘vapour trails’ that learners leave behind them? The million dollar question this begs is, of course, what do we mean by “meaningful” learning, and what kinds of learning are important for the 21st Century landscape, whose contours are shifting faster than theory and practice can keep up with? Here’s the podcast and slides from Learning Analytics: Dream, Nightmare or Fairydust? — my keynote at Ascilite 2011, in which I introduce ELLI as one of the promising signposts to the ways in which we can think about analytics for the new learning paradigms needed to prepare for a complex, uncertain world.

ELLI profiles: size matters

OK, I want to launch a thread here which sets out an issue I’ve pondered for a while now, as I’ve understood more and more of the approach to learning power that ELLI embodies, but bringing in some thinking on information visualization, and critically, the underlying assumptions on which these depend. After some good email exchanges with Tim Small and Ruth Deakin Crick from the U.Bristol/Vital teams, it’s worth moving this into the blogosphere because some good stuff is coming out, and we welcome wider views. We all know how to read a spider Diagram, right? Spider Diagrams are used widely, providing a visual overview of multidimensional scores, but providing more shape information for the human eye than a simple[…]

Mapping BLP to ELLI

Here at Bushfield School, we have been using Building Learning Power for several years now (the version of Bristol’s original research popularised by Guy Claxton via TLO). We’ve had some  success at embedding it within the school’s ethos and everyday practices, according to a TLO audit, and reassuringly,  confirmed by Ofsted. In parallel, we subsequently learned about the ongoing research programme at Bristol, around ELLI, led by Ruth Deakin Crick. Now we’re exploring ways to build on the language for learning that is part of the school’s life, and introduce ELLI as a way of opening up conversations around learning power at the individual pupil level. An initial step has been a simple exercise in which we mapped the BLP[…]

Mapping the Deeper Learning Literature using Cohere

In a perfect example of Bristol/Open U. collaboration, Helen Jelfs (Grad. School Educ., Univ. Bristol and visiting OLnet Fellow, Open University) recently gave a seminar with the Open University’s Simon Buckingham Shum & Anna De Liddo. Check out the replay and slides below… [discussion page] [Cohere visual database] [more details] Mapping the “Deeper Learning” Literature using Cohere View more presentations from Simon Buckingham Shum Abstract: In this talk I will be presenting some aspects of the process of mapping ‘Deeper Learning’ literature using Cohere. ‘Deeper Learning’ focuses on the dispositions and skills of learning how to learn and enquiry-based learning, two of the most fundamental concepts for learner engagement. These dispositions and skills are at the heart of the 21st[…]

Introducing Learning Power: Bahrain Polytechnic

These were the slides used at a seminar in Manama, organised by Bahrain Polytechnic on 22nd June 2011. Bahrain Polytechnic have been using ELLI for two years and it is becoming well embedded in the learning culture there. The students at the Polytechnic are amazing – articulate and passionate about their learning and their futures. We spent some time finalising the Bahraini version of the ELLI questionnaire, adapting the English to suit this unique context. See these cards which show their own interpretation of the seven dimensions. and The slides used in the seminar can be downloaded from here: Bahrain polytechnic june 2011 View more presentations from Ruth Deakin Crick
