Leveraging The Power of Analytics in Education

The landscape of technology in education has changed drastically over the last two decades.  With the advent of technology, many aspects of education that once was labour-intensive can now be accomplished with the click of a button. As an example, teachers no longer need to spend hours setting up question papers or correcting answer sheets. Technological advancements have made everything automated. With this solution, teachers can concentrate more on their primary task of teaching.

However, constructive teaching happens when an educator knows what a learner already knows and uses data-driven insights to customize the learning experience for the learner.

Data analytics can be used to gain insight into how learners learn in the context of the learning process, how quickly learners complete a series of assigned tasks, and how subject-specific learning impacts performance.

As technology rules the changing education landscape and presents multiple avenues for online teaching and learning, the Big Data helps to keep it meaningful and engaging.

Understanding trends in individual performance and monitoring the entire gamut of delivering quality education by the schools had hitherto remained a grey area. But with the power of technology, leveraging data and analytics to provide deep insights into a student’s learning capabilities and performance in the educational institution is no longer a cumbersome task.

If used appropriately, the analytics can bring forth deep insights on performance and delivery which can be further utilized to streamline the teaching and learning processes both by educators as well as students.

Analytics empowers students in two crucial areas, by providing insights into their strengths and weaknesses in terms of learning and helping them find newer areas for improvisation. For educators too, this can serve as a very powerful tool as they can be apprised of the individual performances and understanding capabilities of the students which can further help in structuring the lesson plans accordingly. Using data analytics, the instructor can better trace and take necessary actions to improve the learning process of the students with different pedagogical approaches.

The right blend of data and technology is the key to creating personalized and adaptive solutions for students, using which the teaching institutions can also deep dive and get to know their actual learning challenges.

Clearly, the pandemic has accelerated the adoption of technology in schools. In the wake of the edtech revolution, we are beginning to see its benefits. Novel algorithms and modern technologies like machine learning, AI, Big data analytics, and virtual and augmented reality all are paving their way in the Edtech domain to enhance a student’s learning experience while closely connecting the teachers and parents to the education ecosystem.

The framework of data and analytics designed by the leading EdTech platform, Fliplearn seeks to address this imbalance in the current system with the power of clearly defined data metrics for all stakeholders, thereby fostering better collaboration and transparency. The detailed ‘Student Learning Profile’ feature helps to closely monitor the day-to-day learning progress of a child, detailing his/ her academic strengths and weaknesses while the consolidated reports provide meaningful insights into the individual and overall performance of the class and students in assigned homework, assessments, quizzes, and shared content in just a single click. These details can go as minute as class-wise, subject-wise, and question-wise attempts which helps the teachers to keep a track of the present understanding levels of the class.

The school administration can also closely monitor the attendance of the school, individual teachers and students, class, and section-wise, can view the activities being assigned by the teachers, and track the overall performance of the school. The students on the other hand can monitor their own progress in different subjects and improvise accordingly.

The parents too can keep a close track of their child’s learning outcomes and progress through integrated dashboards and regular updates.

With world-class curated content, a slew of interesting features, and the most comprehensive analytical dashboards, the Fliplearn platform is extensively being used in leading schools across India.

Clearly, education has been greatly democratized with the advent of technology and the current wave of the pandemic has a large role to play in the momentum being witnessed in the EdTech space.

With constant innovations in the Edtech sector, data emerges as the biggest game-changer. A comprehensive data strategy will go a long way in defining the institutional efficiencies and bringing about a positive change in the teaching and learning outcomes.
