Learning Analytics for 21st Century Competencies
Buckingham Shum, Simon; Crick, Ruth Deakin
Journal of Learning Analytics, v3 n2 p6-21 2016
Many educational institutions are shifting their teaching and learning towards equipping students with knowledge, skills, and dispositions that prepare them for lifelong learning, in a complex and uncertain world. These have been termed "21st century competencies." Learning analytics (LA) approaches in general offer different kinds of computational support for tracking learner behaviour, managing educational data, visualizing patterns, and providing rapid feedback to both educators and learners. This special section brings together a diverse range of learning analytics tools and techniques that can be deployed in the service of building 21st century competencies. We introduce the research and development challenges, and introduce the research and practitioner papers accepted to this section, before concluding with some brief reflections on the collection and relevance of a complex systems perspective for framing this topic.
