In my post referencing the ICDE's Global Guidelines: Ethics in Learning Analytics yesterday I said: This document summarizes the considerations of an ICDE working group on learning analytics. The presumption throughout is that a global ethic in learning analytics is needed, can be known, and comprehends the issues in this document.

Reflecting on Learning Analytics and SoLAR

George Siemens

The Learning Analytics and Knowledge conference (LAK16) is happening this week in Edinburgh. I have great hope for the learning analytics field as one that will provide significant research for learning and help us move past naive quantitative and qualitative assessments of research and knowledge. Would you be interested in participating in a discussion on educational analytics (process, methods, technologies)? Not everyone was a fan of the idea of learning analytics.

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.

To reach a higher level of privacy and security, we need to establish a trusted data ecosystem for each kind of identity, which requires the exchange and sharing of data across a variety of institutions. However, safeguarding the data used to validate identities creates security and privacy issues of its own. Using next generation data analytics and AI they could understand the possible trajectories of a virus and take steps to crush it.”.

Moreover, ensuring data security and protecting privacy is becoming harder as the information multiplies and is shared ever more widely around the world.

At TEKRI , we involved in organizing a conference in December (Banff, Alberta) on learning analytics to tackle this topic in more depth.

Flows, Fragility and Friction

John Hagel

Stories of significant security breaches multiply as we become more connected. For example, in the case of trading markets, it might take the form of buffers that require some reflection or more analytics before acting upon information. I’ve long been a fan of flows but, in the spirit of paradox, I’ve also been a fan of friction. But, wait a minute, friction slows down flows – how could I possibly favor both flows and friction?
