You are warmly invited to join this inaugural event!
The data and analytics revolutions are disrupting and already transforming many sectors in society: finance, health, shopping, politics. Data is not new to education, but for many, it is still challenging to articulate the connection between the potential of using data to support decision making, and the every day-to-day operations occurring in learning environments.
School leaders, teachers, data analysts, academics, policy makers and all other interested parties are invited to join a professional learning and development day focused on the practical applications of Learning Analytics in school (K-12) education.
Drawing on national and international expertise, speakers include innovative school leaders and teachers, school data analysts, university researchers, government and software companies. Whether you already know a bit about Learning Analytics, are brand new to it, or already use it in the classroom, there will be insightful sessions with pertinent applications for all levels of knowledge and understanding.
You will leave with a deeper understanding of:
The diverse forms that Learning Analytics can take, and especially how technology extends this far beyond conventional school data to create better feedback
How such data is being used by school leaders to support strategic reflection
How new kinds of data are being used by teachers to support their practice
The practicalities of initiating such work in your own school
This is the first event of its kind in Australia, and a new initiative for the international LAK conference, so you will make many professional connections as we forge this new network.
