The Distributed Data Mesh as a Solution to Centralized Data Monoliths

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. The Distributed Data Mesh as a Solution to Centralized Data Monoliths
Thomas Betts, InfoQ, 2020/01/31
This is a quick summary of a paper and presentation. "Instead of building large, centralized data platforms, enterprise data architects should create distributed data meshes," says Zhamak Dehghani, principal technology consultant at ThoughtWorks. She adds, "as data becomes ever more ubiquitous, traditional architectures of data warehouses and data lakes become overwhelmed, and are unable to scale efficiently." I think that this is especially the case for learning technology and learning resources. More...

A Pedagogical Perspective on Big Data and Learning Analytics: A Conceptual Model for Digital Learning Support

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. A Pedagogical Perspective on Big Data and Learning Analytics: A Conceptual Model for Digital Learning Support
Sabine Seufert, Christoph Meier, Matthias Soellner, Roman Rietsche, Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2020/01/13
This is a pretty good paper. The authors draw on three meta-analyses of learning analytics literature in order to create a framework for describing learning analytics projects. They then apply this framework to four use cases: socal learning analytoics for prediction and for reflection, and individual learning analytics for the same two functions. I think this reading of learning analytics is a bit narrow, and the divisoion between social and individual a bit arbitrary, but the tables produced by the literature search are a valuable reference.
This is the first paper I've posted here from Springer-Nature's SharedIt service (which has been running since 2016). The idea is that authors can share read-only PDFs using access tokens to social media and blogs. More...

Art, Science, and the Role of Data in Education

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Art, Science, and the Role of Data in Education
David Wiley, iterating toward openness, 2019/04/04
The best line in this post is this: "each year in the US, we turn out thousands of students who have learned the rules Bach used to write four part chorales... but even though we train thousands of students, year after year, we haven’t seen another Bach." Of course, part of the reason for this is the same as the reason we can make most students above-average: the second person who is equal to Bach, even if equally talented, can't be Bach. And of course the United States has produced acres of brilliant musical talent over the years, as original and creative as Bach, but of course, not Bach. The pedantry aside, I agree with Wiley's overall point, that any discipline is a mixture of art and science. More...

College Finance Data 2017-18

Résultat de recherche d'images pour "hepi"Morning.  Just after the blog closed for the holidays, Statistics Canada did its annual release of data from the FINCOL survey (that’s the one that asks colleges about their income and expenditure, just like FIUC does for universities, only in a lot less detail).  So, as usual, I thought I would give you a look into the data.
