Senior advisor Morten Dahl from the Norwegian Centre for ICT in Education highlighted SLATE in his LACE blog post about “The State of Art of Learning Analytics in Norwegian Schools”.
The Learning Analytics Community Exchange (LACE) is an EU-funded project in the 7th Framework Programme involving nine partners from across Europe.
Dahl stated that the scope of the centre will be: “SLATE will generate empirical knowledge with relevance for educational practice in the broadest sense, at the intersection of learning, learners, technology, and pedagogical practice and advance the frontiers of all the sciences of learning and technology through integrated research.”
He underlined that “SLATE will not be restricted to K-12, as the focus of the centre will be challenges “related to learning and technology in all facets of human learning throughout a lifetime.”
