The LAK Dataset provides access to structured metadata from research publications in the field of learning analytics. Beyond merely publishing the data, it is actively encouraging its innovative use and exploitation as part of a public LAK Data Challenge sponsored by the European Project LinkedUp, co-located with the ACM LAK13 Conference, Leuven, Belgium (April 2013).
This data represents an unprecedented resource for related research, which will be encouraged by the LAK Data Challenge. A number of incentives and rewards (iPads amongst others) are on offer for innovative applications tackling topics such as:
- Analysis & assessment of the emerging LAK community in terms of topics, people, citations or connections with other fields
- Innovative applications to explore, navigate and visualise the dataset (and/or its correlation with other datasets)
- Usage of the dataset as part of recommender systems
For further details about incentives, submission and evaluation, please see the Website of the LAK Data Challenge.
Dans le cadre des réflexions lancées par le laboratoire d’idées du Forum d’Avignon 2012, l’Atelier BNP Paribas a mené une enquête pour mesurer la façon dont les jeunes générations utilisent les technologies numériques dans leurs rapports aux contenus culturels et à la création, et pour comprendre notamment quels contenus ils créent, partagent et transmettent eux-mêmes.
ReFlex is a tool for learners to record 60-second audio-visual clips of their personal learning experiences, store them on a timeline and share them with teachers, peers and parents.
All recordings by one learner are stored on a personal timeline and are accessible for later review. In addition to the present, learners may also create “time capsule” recordings for the future. Time capsules can only be opened when their set date is reached, and can be used as statements of learning objectives. From the entire pool of recordings, learners can mark important clips by highlighting them. The best way to get an idea of it is to try it.

What if the world went upside down and children could create their own teaching material? This is the philosophy of the dutch project Jonatan Academy. The pupils (10-13 years old) teach other kids how to solve mathematical or linguistic problems by creating videos through Microsoft PowerPoint. They create those movies all by themselves: from choosing a suitable subject to talk about, to writing down a scenario for their explanation and the digitalizing it in PowerPoint. The material is then available for free for all teachers and pupils.
