[article] Efforts in Europe for Data-Driven Improvement of Education – A Review of Learning Analytics Research in Six Countries #LearningAnalytics #tugraz

I did an article with a hand of colleagues about „Efforts in Europe for Data-Driven Improvement of Education – A Review of Learning Analytics Research in Six Countries“ for the first issue of the „International Journal of Learning Analytics and Artificial Intelligence for Education (iJAI)„.

Abstract:

Information and communication technologies are increasingly mediating learning and teaching practices as well as how educational institutions are handling their administrative work. As such, students and teachers are leaving large amounts of digital footprints and traces in various educational apps and learning management platforms, and educational administrators register various processes and outcomes in digital administrative systems. It is against such a background we in recent years have seen the emergence of the fast-growing and multi-disciplinary field of learning analytics. In this paper, we examine the research efforts that have been conducted in the field of learning analytics in Austria, Denmark, Finland, Norway, Germany, Spain, and Sweden. More specifically, we report on developed national policies, infrastructures and competence centers, as well as major research projects and developed research strands within the selected countries. The main conclusions of this paper are that the work of researchers around Europe has not led to national adoption or European level strategies for learning analytics. Furthermore, most countries have not established national policies for learners’ data or guidelines that govern the ethical usage of data in research or education. We also conclude, that learning analytics research on pre-university level to high extent have been overlooked. In the same vein, learning analytics has not received enough focus form national and European national bodies. Such funding is necessary for taking steps towards data-driven development of education.

Im Rahmen des Adventskalender von e-teaching.org gibt es auch ein Video des Vereins Forum Neue Medien Austria, dessen Präsidium ich angehöre:

[video] Was steckt hinter Twitter?

3sat hat einen Beitrag über Twitter erstellt und dieser steht online zur Verfügung. Also wer eine kleine Einführung haben möchte, schön im Stil einer Fernsehsendung ist mit diesem Link sicher sehr gut versorgt.

Look Back to ED-Media 2009

I was wondering about, what should I write about the ED-Media Conference, but maybe I should share some impressions with you:

  • First of all it was a great conference with such a great location – well done all the staff to bring us such an experience.
  • Furthermore I think we did a great job to bring Twitter to the Conference. There was so many contributors to gather new ideas, discussions and worthful thoughts. I think we are on the best way to integrate this kind of social media in one of the biggest conferences. Also the livestream beside the keynotes worked well and made the presentations interactive (Short video).
    If you are interested in the result and what was going on here, see the search of #edmedia here on twazzup.
  • For the first time I dealed also very deeply with the iPhone and there were so many exciting ways to enhance the whole stay – I recorded talks with audioboo, tweeted pictures and the geotagging of the location. Overall the WiFI was running quite good, so there are no additionally costs

And of course I met many interesting people and thanks all who made our stay here such nice – cu again in future.
