Data is becoming one of the hottest topics in education with educators keen to explore the possibilities and the significant advantages of using data to inform education design and delivery. At OEB Global a panel organised by eMadrid Network and the CompetenSEA project will consider the what’s possible and the implications for education professionals.
Conference Chair Rebecca Stromeyer, points out: “Data is the fuel to boost the knowledge economy - and learning analytics can help all stakeholders in education to monitor, predict and optimise the learning process. The opportunities and dangers of data-informed learning will be discussed by this panel at OEB 2018.”
