Developing a Growth Learning Data Mindset: a secondary school approach to creating a culture of data driven improvement.
Presented by Brad Swibel
There is a common notion in learning analytics research that learning analytics needs to be grounded in pedagogy. Learning analytics has been labelled the “middle space” as it lies at the intersection between technology and pedagogy.
Researchers suggest that learning analytics dashboards can be used as powerful learning tools for students, helping them to reason about the effort invested in the learning activities and learning outcomes. However, a large majority of dashboards are still aimed at teachers and there has been little research on the effect dashboards have on student learning. Goal setting is a central construct in personalised learning and is often studied as a form of self-regulation and these practices lead to improvement in achievement.
This presentation, at the intersection of praxis, governance and research describes the value-add provided by data-driven learning approaches to create a culture of growth mindset, goal setting and self-regulation learning in students and teachers.
