How can we put AI analytics to work on student data to gain a better understanding of what’s happening inside of learning?
Working together, Educate Ventures Research and ASU made great strides in the last year using existing student data to identify points when students moved past just learning content – and were ’learning how to learn’. In this session, leaders from both teams will share the innovative ways they approached and analysed student data, what they discovered about how and when students were learning how to learn, and what they hope to do with this information next.
