Umeå University invited to discuss the New Horizon Report 2013 - Higher Ed... - Learning Analytics for students!
There is an ethical problem with *learning analytics in higher ed*: Who wants to make mistakes when teachers expose learners by using big data? Do we really want to have teachers who control students by using data? An alternative option is students get access to the data! We talked about a new project on "learning analytics for students" for supporting self-assessments (process-based assessment; read Peter Bergström Phd study). Do not analyze students by big data, creating social relations instead.
