A2 Week 12

Hi all,

There is a huge potential for design practices with learning and social analytics.  I found it interesting the connection between analytics and assessment for learning; as educators, we are constantly assessing our students for the purpose of improving learning.  This is ongoing, can be formal or informal, and much of what we receive is subjective.  What if we were able to look at this a lot more objectively?  Not only what we see with out own eyes, but instead everything that the learner is experiencing is reported back to us?  That would be an incredible tool for learning.

The challenge or pitfall is believing that somehow that could replace our own ongoing assessments and the capabilities of the human brain.  We sense a lot more then what is clicked.
