Filtered and Girlguiding to reveal how to harness data in learning

London, UKLearning NewsFiltered

Filtered, pioneer of artificial intelligence in learning, and Girlguiding, the leading UK Charity for girls and young women, will be explaining the key steps towards good data usage in learning at this year’s Learning Live.


For too long L&D has had neither the apparatus to gather the vital behavioural data needed to shape their strategy, nor the expertise to use the data they do have effectively. But things have changed. L&D can now access a vast data set to gain insight into how and why people learn, and why interventions succeed or fail.

In 2019, Girlguiding and Filtered commenced a pilot implementation of magpie, the AI-driven learning recommendations engine. An overarching aim of the pilot was to gather hard data to support the learning strand of Girlguiding’s digital transformation initiative. This data is informing strategic decisions about the next steps to take on this journey.

In their session at this year’s Learning Live, Michelle Parry-Slater, Lead Volunteer for L&D, and Lucinda King, Digital Product Manager at Girlguiding will be joined by Filtered’s Solutions Consultant, James Tyas, to discuss the role data plays in learning strategy and digital transformation.

The format will be a mix of actionable takeaways and free interaction, giving the audience the opportunity to put questions on data-driven learning to Girlguiding and receive honest insights and advice.

“Currently, data and analytics is one of the most misunderstood topics in L&D,” says James Tyas. “In this session, we want to give people an insight into how it can be applied powerfully and effectively in organisations of all sizes.”

The session will run from 11:30-12:15 on Day 2, 05/09 in the Engage room.

Members of the wider Filtered team will also be present at Stand 19 to answer any pressing data questions and demo magpie, the keystone in the company’s recent £2.5 million Series A funding round.
