10 years to wrestle with complexity + learning?

The European Future & Emerging Technologies Flagships competition has the following mission: FET Flagships are ambitious large-scale, science-driven, research initiatives that aim to achieve a visionary goal. The scientific advance should provide a strong and broad basis for future technological innovation and economic exploitation in a variety of areas, as well as novel benefits for society. Human-Centred Computing and the Learning Sciences tend not to land “Big Science” projects like the Human Genome or Large Hadron Collider. But the over-arching theme of Complexity Science as a way of making sense of pervasive societal problems, and of the ‘big data’ it generates, provides the scale of vision for one of these Flagship projects. The Open University is a partner in the[…]

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.
