Our Learning Analytics are our Pedagogy

Our Learning Analytics are Our Pedagogy from Simon Buckingham Shum In this keynote to  Macquarie University’s Expanding Horizons 2012 conference , I gave an overview of how the field is developing at macro, meso and micro scales, and then later on make a connection to the seminal work of the Assessment Reform Group on Assessment for Learning, in which University of Bristol played an active role through Patricia Broadfoot, and also to Paul Collard, who presents what is for me a provocative metaphor for the challenge we now face in education: musical reproduction ≠ musicality… Abstract: “Learning Analytics”: unprecedented data sets and live data streams about learners, with computational power to help make sense of it all, and new breeds of[…]

Analytics for lifelong learning

The International Conference on Learning Analytics & Knowledge (LAK) is the primary research forum on Learning Analytics, the rapidly growing community studying how we can make use of ‘Big Data’ (static data sets and live data streams), analytics to make sense of them, and recommendation engines to personalise the learner’s experience. Here are previews of three papers to be presented at LAK2012, which connect in different ways to the core themes of LearningEmergence.net… This joint OU-Bristol paper sets out how Bristol’s work with ELLI and the Learning Warehouse platform intersects with the emerging learning analytics field, and projects forward to real-time ELLI analytics grounded in online social learning platforms… Buckingham Shum, S. and Deakin Crick, R. (2012). Learning Dispositions and[…]

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.

Learning Analytics and Knowledge 2012

Learning Analytics and Knowledge Conference, April 29-May 2, 2012 http://lak12.sites.olt.ubc.ca Full Paper submission: October 16, 2011 All other submissions: November 13, 2011 Keynotes Katy Börner, George Siemens, Barry Wellman We are experiencing an unprecedented explosion in the quantity and quality of information available not only to us, but about us. We must adapt individually, institutionally and culturally to the transition in technologies and social norms that makes this possible, and question their impacts. What are the implications of such data availability for learning and knowledge building — not only in established contexts, but also in the emerging landscape of free, open, social learning online? This conference will be of interest to Learning Emergence readers since we are unquestionably entering the[…]
