MEDEAnet webinar “Introduction to Big Data and Learning Analytics”

Nowadays more and more people are talking about ‘Big Data’ and ‘Learning Analytics’ and it is clear that digital learning environments do offer terrific opportunities for anyone who wants to measure and analyse how learners behave using objective measures and criteria. But how can you get started and is this the type of work that calls for specialist skills and resources? In this first webinar in the MEDEAnet Autumn – Winter webinar series, Erik Woning from Kennisnet (the Netherlands) gave an introduction to this fascinating and powerful topic. This session lets you understand how observing trends and patterns in learners’ online activities can help you to create more personalised learning environments. It also introduces you to how organisations like Kennisnet in the Netherlands are using ‘Big Data’ and ‘Learning Analytics’ to better support teachers in a practical way.

This webinar was held on 5 September 2013 at 16:00 CET and was attended by 38 particpants from 14 countries.

Teaching Channel

Teaching Channel is a video showcase — on the Internet and TV — of inspiring and effective teaching practices in US schools. It has a rapidly growing community of registered members who trade ideas and share inspiration from each other. With the help of the Tch community, its mission is to revolutionize how teachers learn, connect, and inspire each other to improve the outcomes for all K-12 students across the US (K-12 stands for: "from Kindergarten (K) for 4–6-year-olds through twelfth grade (12) for 18–19-year-olds or in other words it generally coincides with European Primary and Secondary education).

In order to accomplish its mission, there are three simple goals, all of them reliant on input from teachers:
• Build professional learning resources that teachers want
• Deepen and improve opportunities for teacher learning
• Elevate and celebrate teachers in our society

Teaching Channel videos are produced by a team of professionals — a collaborative effort between video production experts, education advisors, and the classroom teachers themselves, but it is important to note that Teaching Channel does not determine or influence the content taught in its videos.
The video library offers educators a wide range of subjects for grades K-12. The videos also include information on alignment with Common Core State Standards and ancillary material for teachers to use in their own classrooms.

Teaching Channel Presents is a weekly one-hour TV program that features Teaching Channel videos, it is broadcast only in the United States.
Teaching Channel is somewhat similar to the UK's Teacher TV channel that ceased to exist in 2009.
