«Supporting teachers with community, desing and learning analytics»
I will present an overview of the educational technologies research conducted by the TIDE research group of the Information and Communication Technologies Department at Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona (http://www.upf.edu/web/tide @TIDE_UPF). The overview will be articulated around the perspective of supporting teachers and teacher communities (e.g., a school) in the design of the best possible (technology-enhanced) learning activities considering their students and their contexts. Main contributions that will be presented include a community platform for integrated learning design (ILDE), including multiple authoring tools (e.g. PyramidApp for collaborative learning, edCrumble for blended learning) and the use of data analytics at different levels (learning, design, community) to support community awareness and teacher reflection when designing for learning. The presentation will include results of several research projects (METIS, CoT, MdM-EDS, RESET, SmartLET, Illuminated).
