Thanks for your feedback James. An interesting question about whether my increased understanding of LA has affected my own behaviours; in short, I don’t think so. However, it has affected my attitudes towards the use of data in the schools and the Trusts I work with. Even key figures in the field – such as Siemens and Gašević – acknowledge that it is an emergent science and much work is needed to ensure that LA offers improved experiences and outcomes for students. In my experience, the focus on summative data in schools and their use as a means to judge staff and students is crude and often unhelpful.
