Social Physics - Reinventing Analytics to Better Predict Human Behaviors

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

T hey eventually discovered that all event-data representing human activity contain a special set of social activity patterns regardless of what the data is about. These patterns are common across all human activities and demographics, and can be used to detect emerging behavioral trends before they can be observed by any other technique. .

Ethical Codes and Learning Analytics

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Abstract The growth and development of learning analytics has placed a range of new capacities into the hands of educational institutions. The ethics of learning analytics will therefore need to be developed on criteria specific to education. It may be argued that the relation between ethics and law is such that in a treatment of the ethics of learning analytics we ought also to be concerned with the law in relation to learning analytics.

AI - the Creation of a Human-Centric Engineering Discipline

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Machine and deep learning are the latest examples of tools like the World Wide Web, search and analytics that are helping us cope with and take advantage of the huge amounts of information all around us. Practices, building blocks and tools have started to emerge, as have a number of sophisticated mathematical techniques such as those underlying deep learning. “What we’re missing is an engineering discipline with its principles of analysis and design…”, notes Jordan.

New Tools Beget Revolutions: Big Data and the 21st Century Information-based Society

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Big data is such a measurement revolution made possible by the new digital tools all around us, including location data transmitted by our mobile phones; searches, web links and social media interactions; payments and transactions; the myriads of smart sensors keeping track of the physical world; and so on. In 2012, he published a paper with his students, An Analytics Approach to Designing Clinical Trials for Cancer , which he dedicated to the memory of his father. . “We

Educational Research in Learning Technology

I think the key point here is to note that not everything is designed to increase test scores. A wider search may reveal more such articles. Also aka 'design research', where proving something works is all that it takes) - what's wanted? After a period of time, a tool (like a word processor or LMS) is no longer novel to the teacher or the school, and so they settle into a 'more normal' pattern of usage for that tool. This is a common pattern for systematic reviews.

Big Data Takes Center Stage

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

In 2000, only one-quarter of the world’s stored information was digital and therefore subject to search and analysis. Sampling requires anticipating how the data will be used so you can design the proper sample. Or, at least it’s good enough in the early stages of an empirical science, when we are looking for patterns that will help us predict future events and behaviors without necessarily having a good model or theory of why they happen.

Rural students need to learn how to use the Web to search the university library. Look at user needs to design services. We generate lots of data, which allows us to be strategic, looking for patterns of use. We can do predictive analytics. [ She goes through some analytics with charts that I cannot capture. ]. We should create Facebook fan pages for our libraries, and we can put our search engines there.

Edge Perspectives with John Hagel: The Power of Power Laws

John Hagel

In many respects, the history of Western business in the twentieth century represents an effort to build scalable operations through standardization designed to serve “average consumers”. These managers inherit from the industrial economy a belief that, even where the world is not yet Gaussian, it can be made so through design. Searching for simplicity Besides extreme events, there’s another implication of the shift to a Paretian world. Here's to patterns that connect!

Seven Key Technology Patterns 1. Predictive analytics will grow in significance in terms of student retention and learner support. I did a double take when I read this, since I thought we were done with analytics, but the author assumed (I guess) that we need a whole second class of analytics, this time to predict what students will do.

Beyond Institutions Personal Learning in a Networked World

Thinking in Models: for Design, for Learning… A large part of this talk is about that change. We''re told there will be analytics and data-driven management. When you look at that, basically it''s like they have this model or design in their head of how we could rebuild the university system, wipe it all out, start over, and we''ll have a new model. Models of how to do learning, learning design patterns: Grainne Conole has done a lot on this. I did a search.

leads to questions about designing learning for the future - reference to the old ''cranking ifo into students'' heads diagram - claims about the future: - work at own time, place, etc - computers will revolutionize learning - along came MOOCs - investment in MOOCs: $100M - will take time but will have a major impact - why things will change.

Another key idea was the design of the gaming space itself.Early computer games (and many early arcade games) were designed likeprogrammed learning: they were like a flow chart, guiding you through a seriesof choices to a predetermined conclusion. You can begin to see a pattern developing here. To this day, the learningmanagement system is designed essentially to present content and supportdiscussion and activities around that content.

This talk is basically what he said, except he said it in the French way with complex theories, while I''m going to give it in the prickly, analytical, English kind of Canadian, dry presentation. It''s the basis for instructional design. You start with what you want them to learn, design an experience, cause them to learn it, build in some checks, and see that this has all happened in the end. You look and you search and you search.

Education as Platform: The MOOC Experience and what we can do to make it better

seeing the patterns of those posts then composing a response. A good community manager must be able to skip around, see patterns, scan the whole and then discern if and where to intervene in the system. Community requires the emotional intelligence from the heart side and the analytical/strategic and content skills from the head side. Second, I think that multi-membership, head-and-heart, and network sensibilities are more important than pattern recognition scores.

The past half-century of empirical research on this issue has provided overwhelming and unambiguous evidence that minimal guidance during instruction is significantly less effective and efficient than guidance specifically designed to support the cognitive processing necessary for learning. Recent developments in instructional research and instructional design models that support guidance during instruction are briefly described.
