The Role of Data in the Provision of Feedback at Scale, 11 April 2017
Technology mediation allows to capture comprehensive data sets about interactions occurring in learning experiences. Although these data sets have the potential of increasing the insight on how learning occurs, their use strongly depends on two aspects: the data has to be properly situated in the learning design, and the insights derived need to be translated into actions. In this talk we will explore how to establish this connection for the case of the provision of feedback. We will approach the problem from the point of view of intelligence amplification, that is, how data can support instructors to provide better support to learners through feedback. The talk will discuss some preliminary results from the Ontasklearning.org project.
