Learning Analytics and Quantified Self at LASI13
(Networked conferences should really be explored further. Face to face meetings are nice, but sometimes difficult to fit in and I wonder whether we wouldn’t be able to make on-line events work better than face-to-face ones with all the technology we have. Hey, I sent a twitter message to the person sitting next to me in a session yesterday, despite the fact that we had both travelled across an ocean to be in Stanford…)
Above are the slides I used for my session on ‘learning analytics and quantified self’. I would write a bit more about what happened at the workshop, but you can get all the details from Doug’s wonderful #lasi13 lifeblog…
Basically, Abelardo and I asked participants to identify data that would be useful to track in order to have a good view on how the learning process is proceeding. We then asked people to design a scenario that demonstrates the added value of a quantified self approach. We ended the afternoon with a discussion on the research challenges in this area. Again, Doug provides many more details… A big thank you to all who participated – sure got me thinking about new things to try.
And maybe you have some suggestions for data to track in a learning context? Or maybe you know of some other work in this area? If so, I’d love to hear more…!
