From Keith Webster
In this presentation, I’ll be proposing a conceptual framework for allowing custom-built analytics tools to allow student agency over the use of their data. As most learning platforms don’t give students the choice of whether their data is collected, custom built tools can do this. If collection is a given, custom tools can at least allow students the agency to choose whether their data is used for learning analytics purposes (even if it still is collected). This would allow for an opt-in mechanism as we wait for large edtech firms to play catch up.
