What is Learning Analytics?Learning Analytics is about collecting traces that learners leave behind and using those traces to improve learning. (Eric Duval, Cath Univ of Leuven)
What is Learning Analytics?
From school bus same pace and same route for everyone
What is Learning Analytics?
To personalised education
What is Learning Analytics and LACE?
Work Package 4: Schools Objectives Bring together disparate communities with related interestsCapture and disseminate the latest thinking on learning analytics in practiceAnalyse significant developments and issues in the domain and produce reportsIdentify, collect and synthesise claims and evidence for the benefits of learning analytics6
The current situation in EuropeFew governmental initiatives
Low awareness among decion-makers and decision-shapers
Growing numbers of commercial initiatives mostly small scale7
Three(?) emerging strategies
Learning Analytics module
Learning resource moduleLearning resource module
Learning analytics integrated into the learning resource
Adaptive testing systemModular approachIntegrated approachStand alone approach
Stand alone approach adaptive testing (SE)
Integrated approach: Studi.se (SE)
Videos (also with sub-titles in many languages), texts and quizzesFeedback to both the student and the teacher10
The stand alone approach (NO)
Modular approach: Learnbeat (NL)
Modular approach: Lraktiv (SE)
Example 6: Interactive Flipped Classroom (SWE)Based on the flipped classroom methodMakes the students more active in the classroomBut they are still quite passive when looking at videosTechnical platform which helps the teacher to cut the videos in smaller chunks and add quizzesAlso possible for students to stop the video and write questions to the teacher14Under development!
Feedback to the teacherHow many have looked at the video (and when)?How did the group score on the quizzez?Which parts did they found (particularly) hard?Where they confused by the teachers examples?Specific questions feeded back to the teacher before the lesson
The quizz question
Correct answersWrong answers
Why do you subtract 4/9?
The students can stop the video and write questions if needed
Future developments issues for discussionTraditional textbook publishers or upcoming dot.coms?Are the three approaches described the only ones, or are there more approaches?Which approach(es) will be more successful?What about OERs and learning analytics?Will there be open analytics?Will there be adaptive tests in other subjects than mathematics? 19
