Abstract:Applying learning analytic approaches in the P-12 context could radically change the nature of elementary and secondary education. Yet, there are great hurdles to overcome in implementing such approaches at this level, including: the lack of technical infrastructure and human capital to collect and analyze data; the ability to make sense of the analytics collected for teaching and learning improvement,; the ethical challenges related to data collection and retention for minors; the unanticipated or unintended uses of this data in the future, etc. The purpose of this SIE is threefold: 1) to further refine the conversation by situating issues, ethics and methods for learning analytics in P-12 education; 2) to envision the potential and pitfalls of analytics in P-12 learning contexts; and 3) to identify and develop a set of concrete takeaways related to our theme such as ideas for future research proposals, journal articles, and/or applications.
