Learning from Student Data
Pruitt, Kobie
State Education Standard, v16 n2 p28-30 May 2016
Just as adults' personal lives and data are increasingly inhabiting online spaces, so are students. While this shift brings many benefits and the possibility of learning tailored to individual students' needs, it is also brings new challenges. Students create an electronic trail of information that creates an obvious concern: How can they enjoy the better learning outcomes technology makes possible but still maintain control of their data and be protected? School leaders must be ready to answer questions by taking advantage of the many resources available. Additionally, if staff at state and local education agencies, and even policymakers and legislators, familiarize themselves with these resources, they will all be better able to help parents understand how schools and states are using data to benefit students and provide better learning outcomes.
