Although the analysis of learner digital traces from web-based environments is a useful simplification to understand learning in distance education settings, the fact is that most learning today is blended, and occurs across different spaces (most of them physical). To avoid the “streetlight effect” of only looking for evidence where we can gather it easily, the field of multimodal learning analytics (MMLA) uses multiple sources of data (from questionnaires to sensors) to make sense of the complexity of such blended learning. In this talk, I will provide a brief review of current MMLA research, its many promises, but also its current practical and ethical/privacy problems. A potential way out of these pitfalls is to increase the involvement of MMLA’s end users (e.g., teachers, students) throughout the process of designing and deploying the technology-enhanced learning experience. At Tallinn University, we have proposed an “Educational Living Labs” model for the co-creation and sustainability of educational innovations. In the last part of the talk, I will illustrate how we are applying this model to co-create MMLA-enabled, project-based learning experiences called “project days”.
Biography (from CEITER):
Luis Pablo Prieto Santos, PhD, Senior Research Fellow in New Learning Environments and Technologies (Planning and Orchestration of Learning) at the School of Educational Sciences
Luis Pablo Prieto Santos is a Senior Research Fellow and former Marie Curie Fellow, currently at the School of Educational Sciences in Tallinn University (Estonia). His research deals with the design and evaluation of educational technologies for everyday use in the classroom, including distributed learning environments, tangible UIs, and their analysis using mobile eye-tracking and ubiquitous sensors. He has participated in multiple EU research projects, authored more than 50 academic publications, and co-organized multiple research and teacher professional development workshops on the topics of computer-supported collaborative learning, learning design, orchestration and learning analytics.
