Data, data, data and more data. I often hear the call for data at meetings, gatherings or even the occasional happy hour. Well not really, but you know what I mean.
Today I talk with Dr. Damian Bebell, assistant research professor at the Lynch School of Education, Boston College. More germane to the discussion today, Dr. Bell also works for the International Research Collaborative, a group of international schools looking to analyze data to look for improvements and trends in student learning. We cover the power of data, ways to visualize it and what it means for schools going forward.
Damian holds a position of Assistant Research Professor at Boston College’s Lynch School of Education and is a Senior Research Associate at the Center for the Study of Testing, Evaluation, and Educational Policy. Over the past decade, Damian led numerous research and evaluation studies investigating the effects of 1-to-1 technology programs and other computer-based technology tools on teaching and learning.
