Learning Analytics in the Classroom presents a coherent framework for the effective translation of learning analytics research for educational practice to its practical application in different education domains. Highlighting the real potential of learning analytics as a way to better understand and enhance student learning and with each chapter including specific discussion about what the research means in the classroom, this book provides educators and researchers alike with the tools and frameworks to effectively make sense of and use data and analytics in their everyday practice.
This volume is split into five sections, all of which relate to the key themes in understanding learning analytics through the lens of the classroom:
broad theoretical perspectives
understanding learning through analytics
the relationship between learning design and learning analytics
analytics in the classroom and the impact it can and will have on education
implementing analytics and the challenges involved.
Bridging the gap between research, theory and practice, Learning Analytics in the Classroom is both a practical tool and an instructive guide for educators, and a valuable addition to researchers' bookshelves. A team of world-leading researchers and expert editors have compiled a state-of-the-art compendium on this fascinating subject and this will be a critical resource for the evolution of this field into the future. 26 Line drawings, black and white; 5 Halftones, black and white; 17 Tables, black and white
