Cross-LAK 2016: International Workshop on Learning Analytics Across Physical and Digital Spaces

   Welcome to Cross-LAK 2016, the first international workshop on Learning Analytics Across Physical and Digital Spaces. This workshop is co-located with 6th International Conference on Learning Analytics & Knowledge (LAK'16), the top conference for  which is taking place from April 25 to 29 in the University of Edinburgh, Scotland, UK.  

Workshop themes

Students’ learning commonly occurs in spaces and at moments that go beyond formal education, and this learning is not constrained to a single physical or digital environment. Educational providers deploy a variety of educational resources in both online and face-to-face settings. These technologies allow learners to get remote access to educational resources from different physical spaces (ubiquitous learning support) or to enrich their learning experiences in the classroom in ways that were not previously possible (face-to-face learning support). 

It is of high relevance to the LAK community to explore blended learning scenarios where students can interact at diverse digital and physical learning spaces. The challenge is to find the best approaches that can be applied to automatically capture traces of students’ activity, and understand how learning analytics techniques can be used in heterogeneous contexts.

This workshop aims to gather the sub-community of LAK researchers, learning scientists and researchers from other communities, interested in ubiquitous, mobile and/or face-to-face learning analytics. An overarching concern is how to integrate and coordinate learning analytics to provide continued support to learning across digital and physical spaces.

The goals of the workshop are to share approaches and identify a set of guidelines to design and connect Learning Analytics solutions according to the pedagogical needs and contextual constraints of practitioners.
