Topic: Human-in-the-Loop Teaching: Shaping Classrooms of the Future

This presentation critically examines the use of predictive analytics in K-12 and higher education, with an eye towards actively engaging education professionals in shaping data practices in the classrooms of the future. As the classroom becomes increasingly data informed, this presentation argues that education professionals must insist on, understand, and advocate for more informed data, keeping the classroom data informed but never data driven. Drawing on concepts from systems engineering, it is argued that “human-in-the-loop” approaches could help to avoid some of the dangers of predictive analytics and that teachers, specifically, are best equipped to be this human in the loop.
