Learning analytics don’t just measure students’ progress

Tore TweetMy article ‘Learning analytics don’t just measure students’ progress – they can shape it‘, appeared online in The Guardian education today, in the ‘extreme learning’ section.

In it, I argue that we should not apply learning analytics to the things we can measure easily, but to those that we value, including the development of crucial skills such as reflection, collaboration, linking ideas and writing clearly.

I also link to the #laceproject – Learning Analytics Community Exchange – a European-funded project on learning analytics.
