Using data to inspire learning

Australian Learning Lecture (ALL) is a project designed to draw attention to the big ideas in education and to strengthen the importance of learning in Australia to all Australians.

The project uses a keynote lecture as a catalyst for driving conversation on different ideas. The first lecture in the series looks at Joy and Data. An odd combination perhaps, but it serves to highlight how using data in positive and constructive ways can motivate teachers and students.

The project is looking for subjects to be case studies – schools and teachers who are using data successfully to inspire student learning and engagement.

Data does not have to be technology driven, so data (or information) can take a myriad of forms – sticky notes, data walls etc.  The main point is to tell a story about learning which is supported by evidence or information.

Are you or do you know a school or a teacher who is using data to improve areas including: literacy, intercultural understanding, critical thinking, creativity, communication or citizenship?
