Read more about Michael here

Session Overview
Australia has the world's highest use of classroom 1:1 laptops, but the nature and effectiveness of usability is not well understood. Laptop use in classrooms can make student work opaque to teachers, but on the other hand, the laptop can equally be used to effectively and in real time evaluate and display student's engagement, learning process and skills set. Such understanding of student engagement and distractibility patterns, may be a powerful tool for educators to be able to switch distracted students back to engagement, by providing them with activities and resources adapted to meet their learning styles. Discover how classroom learning analytics is shaping the future of measuring, managing and reporting students' learning and ICT skills.
