The LACE project 6 K12 Workplace HEI Community-building through events & communication channels/social media (cross-disciplinary HEI, K12, Workplace)  Technology transfer & best practice  Organized many events, and contributed to more (tutorials, workshops, conferences, etc.) European support action aimed at integrating communities working on LA from schools, workplace and universities

  10. 10. 10 K12 Workplace HE State of the art by sector • Awareness raising • Less solutions & little use • Vendor interests • High demand on privacy • No systematic use of data • Widespread interest (Management, Researchers, Teachers) • Some substantive take-up • More reporting data than taking action on data • Probably most advanced sector • Bridging ind. communities • KPIs • Continuous improvement & need for LA • Process standardisation

Learners’ personal data are tracked 3. Analytics are rarely used 4. Learners control their own data 5. Open systems are widely adopted 6. Learning analytics are essential tools 7. Analytics help learners make the right choices 8. Analytics have largely replaced teachers 31
