Rastros significativos de aprendizaje

Commentary by Fernando Tellez (Fernando Tellez) on link by Bianka Hajdu, Rastros significativos de aprendizaje, Feb 02, 2012.

Hola Bianka,

A propósito de la conferencia que el pasado martes se presentó sobre Educational Data Mining, Rebecca Fergurson publicó en su blog:

http://diving-4-pearls.blogspot.com/2012/01/miners-or-analysts-whats-in-name.html

algunas interesantes cuestiones en relación con ambas disciplinas. También Erick Duval opinó en su blog al respecto:

" Learning Analytics is about collecting traces that learners leave behind and using those traces to improve learning. Educational Data Minging can process the traces algorithmically and point out patterns or compute indicators..."

Las definiciones publicadas en el sitio web de sus respectivas sociedades mencionan:

"Educational Data Mining is an emerging discipline, concerned with developing methods for exploring the unique types of data that come from educational settings, and using those methods to better understand students, and the settings which they learn in"

International Educational Data Mining Society
http://www.educationaldatamining.org/


" the measurement, collection, analysis and reporting of data about learners and their contexts, for purposes of understanding and optimizing learning and the environments in which it occurs"

The Society for Learning Analytics Research
http://solaresearch.org

desde mi punto de vista, ambas disciplinas tienen en común varios aspectos como:
Comprender cómo funciona el aprendizaje
Desarrollar herramientas que mejoren la curva de aprendizaje
Aproximaciones basadas en el análisis de datos

sin embargo, Learning Analytics pone énfasis en el aspecto educativo mientras que Educational Data Mining resalta el aspecto técnico (los métodos de data mining). Me parece que ambas disciplinas son complementarias y pronto se publicarán investigaciones que incluyan referencias cruzadas entre ambas disciplinas.
