Social Media Research Toolkit - Social Media Lab - 0 views

    "This toolkit assembled by the Social Media Lab seeks to provide an overview of some of the many open access tools available for the study and analysis of social media and online communities.
    The table below presents the tools in alphabetical order and highlights the social media platforms they support and the features they provide. The list is not exhaustive and will be reviewed, updated, and enhanced in the coming months. The tools in this list offer varying degrees of analysis."

The Connected Learning Analytics (CLA) Toolkit - 0 views

    "Connected Learning is a modern pedagogical approach holding that knowledge and learning is distributed across a social, conceptual network. It holds that when people forge, negotiate and nurture connections for themselves (between people, information, knowledge, ideas and concepts), learning is more powerful and sustainable.

    Ideally, such learning could happen anywhere. People would create Personal Learning Networks within a Community of Inquiry. They would use whatever tools they consider relevant to this process, and connect with whoever they consider relevant to their network... However, this open connectivism is difficult to achieve in our current educational paradigms. How can we help people to teach "in the wild"? Learning Management Systems maintain a dominant position in the education sector, which means that technical support is generally provided only for those teachers who choose safety over openness."

Learning process analytics - EduTech Wiki - 1 views


    In this discussion paper, we define learning process analytics as a collection of methods that allow teachers and learners to understand what is going on in a' 'learning scenario, i.e. what participants work(ed) on, how they interact(ed), what they produced(ed), what tools they use(ed), in which physical and virtual location, etc. Learning analytics is most often aimed at generating predictive models of general student behavior. So-called academic analytics even aims to improve the system. We are trying to find a solution to a somewhat different problem. In this paper we will focus on improving project-oriented learner-centered designs, i.e. a family of educational designs that include any or some of knowledge-building, writing-to-learn, project-based learning, inquiry learning, problem-based learning and so forth.
    We will first provide a short literature review of learning process analytics and related frameworks that can help improve the quality of educational scenarios. We will then describe a few project-oriented educational scenarios that are implemented in various programs at the University of Geneva. These examples illustrate the kind of learning scenarios we have in mind and help define the different types of analytics both learners and teachers need. Finally, we present a provisional list of analytics desiderata divided into "wanted tomorrow" and "nice to have in the future"."

    First, the ongoing exploration of the reliability and validity of the psychometric assessment instrument designed to measure and stimulate change in learning power, for which I was one of three originators between 2000 and 2002. To date I have been able to collect large data sets (n=>50,000) and have published reliability and validity statistics in four  peer reviewed journal articles. Second, the application of the concept and assessment of learning power in pedagogy in school, community and corporate sectors, and in particular its contribution to personalisation of learning through authentic enquiry. Third, the contribution of learning power and enquiry to what we know about complexity in education, particularly through the development of systems learning and leadership as a vehicle for organisational transformation. Finally, the application of learning power assessment strategies to the emerging field of learning analytics and agent-based modelling.

Wmatrix corpus analysis and comparison tool - 0 views

    Wmatrix is a software tool for corpus analysis and comparison. It provides a web interface to the USAS and CLAWS corpus annotation tools, and standard corpus linguistic methodologies such as frequency lists and concordances. It also extends the keywords method to key grammatical categories and key semantic domains.

    Wmatrix allows the user to run these tools via a web browser such as Opera, Firefox or Internet Explorer, and so will run on any computer (Mac, Windows, Linux, Unix) with a web browser and a network connection. Wmatrix was initially developed by Paul Rayson in the REVERE project, extended and applied to corpus linguistics during PhD work and is still being updated regularly. Earlier versions were available for Unix via terminal-based command line access (tmatrix) and Unix via Xwindows (Xmatrix), but these only offer retrieval of text pre-annotated with USAS and CLAWS.

About | Learning Emergence - 0 views

    We decided on the name Learning Emergence because we are very much learning about emergence and complex systems phenomena ourselves, even as we develop our thinking on learning as an emergent, systemic phenomenon in different contexts.

    We must shift to a new paradigm for learning in schools, universities and the workplace which addresses the challenges of the 21st Century. Society needs learners who can cope with intellectual, ethical and emotional complexity of an unprecedented nature.

    Learning Emergence partners share an overarching focus on deep, systemic learning and leadership - the pro-active engagement of learners and leaders in their own authentic learning journey, in the context of relationship and community. We work at the intersection of (1) deep learning and sensemaking, (2) leadership, (3) complex systems, and (4) technology:

LOCO-Analyst - 0 views

    What is LOCO-Analyst?

    LOCO-Analyst is an educational tool aimed at providing teachers with feedback on the relevant aspects of the learning process taking place in a web-based learning environment, and thus helps them improve the content and the structure of their web-based courses.

    LOCO-Analyst aims at providing teachers with feedback regarding:

    *  all kinds of activities their students performed and/or took part in during the learning process,

    *  the usage and the comprehensibility of the learning content they had prepared and deployed in the LCMS,

    *  contextualized social interactions among students (i.e., social networking) in the virtual learning environment.

    This Web site provides some basic information about LOCO-Analyst, its functionalities and implementation. In addition, you can watch videos illustrating the tool's functionalities. You can also learn about the LOCO (Learning Object Context Ontologies) ontological framework that lies beneath the LOCO-Analyst tool and download the ontologies of this framework.

Features | Gephi, open source graph visualization software - 0 views

    Gephi is a tool for people that have to explore and understand graphs. Like Photoshop but for data, the user interacts with the representation, manipulate the structures, shapes and colors to reveal hidden properties. The goal is to help data analysts to make hypothesis, intuitively discover patterns, isolate structure singularities or faults during data sourcing. It is a complementary tool to traditional statistics, as visual thinking with interactive interfaces is now recognized to facilitate reasoning. This is a software for Exploratory Data Analysis, a paradigm appeared in the Visual Analytics field of research.
