Van Horne, Sam; Curran, Maura; Smith, Anna; VanBuren, John; Zahrieh, David; Larsen, Russell; Miller, Ross – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2018
Instructional technologists and faculty in post-secondary institutions have increasingly adopted learning analytics interventions such as dashboards that provide real-time feedback to students to support student' ability to regulate their learning. But analyses of the effectiveness of such interventions can be confounded by measures of students'…

Howell, Joel A.; Roberts, Lynne D.; Seaman, Kristen; Gibson, David C. – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2018
Higher education institutions are developing the capacity for learning analytics. However, the technical development of learning analytics has far exceeded the consideration of ethical issues around learning analytics. We examined higher education academics' knowledge, attitudes, and concerns about the use of learning analytics though four focus…

San Pedro, Maria Ofelia Z.; Baker, Ryan S.; Heffernan, Neil T. – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2017
Middle school is an important phase in the academic trajectory, which plays a major role in the path to successful post-secondary outcomes such as going to college. Despite this, research on factors leading to college-going choices do not yet utilize the extensive fine-grained data now becoming available on middle school learning and engagement.…

Roberts, Lynne D.; Howell, Joel A.; Seaman, Kristen – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2017
With the increased capability of learning analytics in higher education, more institutions are developing or implementing student dashboards. Despite the emergence of dashboards as an easy way to present data to students, students have had limited involvement in the dashboard development process. As part of a larger program of research examining…

Lodge, Jason M.; Alhadad, Sakinah S. J.; Lewis, Melinda J.; Gaševic, Dragan – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2017
The use of big data in higher education has evolved rapidly with a focus on the practical application of new tools and methods for supporting learning. In this paper, we depart from the core emphasis on application and delve into a mostly neglected aspect of the big data conversation in higher education. Drawing on developments in cognate…

Mah, Dana-Kristin – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2016
Learning analytics and digital badges are emerging research fields in educational science. They both show promise for enhancing student retention in higher education, where withdrawals prior to degree completion remain at about 30% in Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development member countries. This integrative review provides an…

Liu, Min; Lee, Jaejin; Kang, Jina; Liu, Sa – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2016
Using a multi-case approach, we examined students' behavior patterns in interacting with a serious game environment using the emerging technologies of learning analytics and data visualization in order to understand how the patterns may vary according to students' learning characteristics. The results confirmed some preliminary findings from our…

Kevan, Jonathan M.; Ryan, Paul R. – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2016
This emerging technology report describes the Experience API (xAPI), a new e-learning specification designed to support the learning community in standardizing and collecting both formal and informal distributed learning activities. Informed by Activity Theory, a framework aligned with constructivism, data is collected in the form of activity…

Gibson, David; de Freitas, Sara – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2016
This article summarizes the methods, observations, challenges and implications for exploratory analysis drawn from two learning analytics research projects. The cases include an analysis of a games-based virtual performance assessment and an analysis of data from 52,000 students over a 5-year period at a large Australian university. The complex…

Martin, Florence; Whitmer, John C. – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2016
Adaptive learning gives learners control of context, pace, and scope of their learning experience. This strategy can be implemented in online learning by using the "Adaptive Release" feature in learning management systems. The purpose of this study was to use learning analytics research methods to explore the extent to which the adaptive…

Lagrange, Jean-Baptiste; Psycharis, Giorgos – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2014
The general goal of this paper is to explore the potential of computer environments for the teaching and learning of functions. To address this, different theoretical frameworks and corresponding research traditions are available. In this study, we aim to network different frameworks by following a "double analysis" method to analyse two…

Berland, Matthew; Baker, Ryan S.; Blikstein, Paulo – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2014
Constructionism can be a powerful framework for teaching complex content to novices. At the core of constructionism is the suggestion that by enabling learners to build creative artifacts that require complex content to function, those learners will have opportunities to learn this content in contextualized, personally meaningful ways. In this…

Martin, Lee – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2012
Distributed cognition offers powerful tools for conceptualizing the role that technology plays in learning environments, yet it can be challenging to apply. This paper presents an analytical framework that focuses on four pedagogical functions that technology can perform in learning environments: connection, translation, off-loading, and…
