Tytler, Russell; Ferguson, Joseph; White, Peta – Learning: Research and Practice, 2020
Increasingly, learning in science and mathematics is considered in terms of induction into the multimodal language practices of the disciplinary community. A strong strand of research in this tradition has involved students being challenged to invent multimodal language forms, and their ideas refined through structured guidance. Often, however,…

Lee, Alwyn Vwen Yen; Tan, Seng Chee – Learning: Research and Practice, 2017
The assessment and understanding of students' ideas in discourse have often been a difficult problem for teachers to tackle. Recent innovations and technologies such as text mining can provide a partial solution by generating an estimated count of important keywords which are representative of ideas within discourse. However, investigating idea…

van Leeuwen, Anouschka; van Wermeskerken, Margot; Erkens, Gijsbert; Rummel, Nikol – Learning: Research and Practice, 2017
Teacher orchestration of the classroom is a demanding task because of the multitude of activities and the rapid pace at which these activities occur. Teachers must constantly be aware of the activities students engage in and the progress students are making, in order to be able to make informed decisions. Recent years have seen the development of…

Gaševic, Dragan; Kovanovic, Vitomir; Joksimovic, Srecko – Learning: Research and Practice, 2017
The field of learning analytics was founded with the goal to harness vast amounts of data about learning collected by the extensive use of technology. After the early formation, the field has now entered the next phase of maturation with a growing community who has an evident impact on research, practice, policy, and decision-making. Although…

Hu, Xiao – Learning: Research and Practice, 2017
Despite the rapid development in the area of learning analytics (LA), there is comparatively little focused towards the secondary level of education. This ongoing work presents the latest developed function of Wikiglass, an LA tool designed for automatically recognising, aggregating, and visualising levels of thinking orders in student…

Reimann, Peter – Learning: Research and Practice, 2016
This paper argues that learning analytics (LA) can make contributions to learning research, in addition to aiming for improvements in learning and teaching practices in a solely applied sense. Indeed, there is potential for transforming learning research if certain approaches developed in LA were used more extensively to study learning. The…
