Groping in the Dark: Getting Real About Learning Analytics

 

Michael Feldstein, Chief Accountability Officer, e-Literate

 
The understandable exuberance for applying new data science techniques to learning analytics is slowly giving way to the equally understandable puzzlement and frustration over lack of rapid progress in this domain. Because cognitive processes are fundamentally unobservable, digital learning environments are and always will be radically data-impoverished relative to the task at hand. In other words, no matter how much data we gather about clicks within the learning environment, it will never be enough for machines to learn about learning through algorithm training processes alone.
 
Michael will argue that the way to make progress in learning analytics is through an interdisciplinary, theory-driven approach in which data science techniques are applied in the service of testing hypotheses about learning that have drawn from other bodies of evidence. IMS is in a particularly strong position to be a leader in this kind of work but would need to add some approaches to its standards-making facilitation in order to do so.
9:15 am - 10:00 am
