Meeting Room 114

The road ahead is set to include increasing use of blended learning, mobile learning, gaming, personal learning networks, augmented reality, and much more. If we want these technology "power tools" to have a real and lasting impact on the challenges of college completion, however, anchoring these efforts in on-target analytics that serve not only policy but also core practice—especially at the learning moment—will be essential. Come join your colleagues as we explore how to catalyze this conversation.

RT @derekbruff: .@markmilliron recommending recent article on analytics by Siemens & Long, "Penetrating the Fog," http://t.co/UNz0eqRK. #edu11 #e11_fs07

@rob__cassidy Yes, learning happens at different scales. Concept, cluster of concepts, big picture, and more. Good point. #ed11 #e11_fs07

My idea: Low-threshold learning analytics: individual clicker questions. Higher-threshold: tagging Qs & aggregating data. #edu11 #e11_fs07

Possible report: "X has answered 85% of 'recall' level clicker Qs correctly, but only 25% of 'analyze' level questions." #edu11 #e11_fs07

Needed to implement? Profs "tagging" clicker Qs by type, and reports that sort by those types. Doesn't sound hard. #edu11 #e11_fs07

"You can't read everything on this slide." <sigh> #edu11 #e11_fs07

Great point by @markmilliron about how data display on car dashboards can change behavior. What dashboards do students use? #edu11 #e11_fs07

Be a rookie every year. #edu11 #e11_FS07

@jimgroom What kinds of "learning analytics" does UMW generate via its blog platform? Just curious. #edu11 #e11_fs07

@derekbruff Could you explain "granular"? What's the alternative? #edu11 #e11_fs07

@rob__cassidy Good question. Granular example: What misconceptions do stdts have about integration by parts? #edu11 #e11_fs07

@rob__cassidy Global: What courses do students take after Math 155B (Calc II)? #edu11 #e11_fs07

@derekbruff Thanks, Derek. and the analytics side? what is their focus (as opposed to granular data)? #ed11 #e11_fs07

My question: What's a low-threshold way for faculty to get started with learning analytics? #edu11 #e11_fs07

Oh, I see the disconnect! RT @derekbruff: Global: What courses do students take after Math 155B (Calc II)? #edu11 #e11_fs07

The analytics approach @markmilliron is sharing seems very enterprise / end-to-end. Hard for faculty (and me) to grok. #edu11 #e11_fs07

And there is the "in between": "a letter grade on an essay"? but maybe leaning to granular RT @jjulius: @derekbruff #ed11 #e11_fs07

collaboration? RT @derekbruff: My question: What's a low-threshold way for faculty to get started with learning analytics? #edu11 #e11_fs07

RT @derekbruff: .@markmilliron: Get data all the way down to the learning moment. Put it in the hands of students, faculty, advisers. #edu11 #e11_fs07

.@markmilliron: Key question: "Can you use information about me... to help me?" That's what Amazon, Netflix, etc., do. #edu11 #e11_fs07

This is one reason I like clickers. They generate granular data about student learning for use by those students. #edu11 #e11_fs07

Self-regulation is pretty powerful if we can get information and resources directly in the hands of students. #edu11 #e11_FS07

I'm still trying to figure out how to get the learning analytics people together with the SoTL people. #edu11 #e11_fs07 #issotl

Many good SoTL projects focus on collecting & analyzing granular evidence of student learning. Could inform analytics. #edu11 #e11_fs07

RT @derekbruff: .@markmilliron: Key question: "Can you use information about me... to help me?" That's what Amazon, Netflix, etc., do. #edu11 #e11_fs07

RT @derekbruff: This is one reason I like clickers. They generate granular data about student learning for use by those students. #edu11 #e11_fs07

I'm also reminded of Randy Bass' idea of "thin slices" of student learning & making those "thin slices" more visible. #edu #e11_fs07

How can we make those "thin slices" more visible (and thus capable of being analyzed) in natural, seemless ways. #edu11 #e11_fs07

RT @derekbruff: .@markmilliron recommending recent article on analytics by Siemens & Long, "Penetrating the Fog," http://t.co/UNz0eqRK. #edu11 #e11_fs07

And that reminds me of @sidneyeve's use of blogs. Students blog, comment, like. The blog platform generates *some* analytics. #edu #e11_fs07

What about a WordPress plugin that does some text analysis on student posts? What might that tell us? #edu11 #e11_fs07

Me: What games can teach us about student learning is more or less what cognitive science has already told us. #edu11 #e11_fs07

(Mental note: Blog about "A New Culture of Learning" by John Seely Brown & Douglas Thomas.) #edu11 #e11_fs07

RT @derekbruff: Ppl in the top half of US incomes who go to college are 60-70% likely to finish. Only 9-15% for those in the bottom half. #edu11 #e11_FS07

Catching @markmilliron's #edu11 talk virtually. #E11_FS07
