“Many technologies offer new ways of measuring and understanding learning like never before—at scale and with high resolution. Partnerships between researchers and practitioners are key to taking advantage of these new sources of data in order to improve learning environments for more and more students.”
Andrew Krumm, Ph.D., is Director of Learning Analytics Research at Digital Promise, where he specializes in developing data-intensive research-practice partnerships with educational organizations of all types. Andrew has received funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Institute of Education Sciences (IES), Lucas Education Research, the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, and SRI International. As a learning scientist working at the intersection of school improvement and data intensive research, Andrew develops tools and strategies that partnerships can use to engage in collaborative data-intensive improvement work. Many of these tools and strategies are detailed in a forthcoming book, Learning Analytics Goes to School: A Collaborative Approach to Improving Education, written with Barbara Means and Marie Bienkowski.
