Homework assignments that learn from students. Courses tailored to fit individual pupils. Textbooks that talk back. This is tomorrow’s education landscape, thanks to the power of big data. These advances go beyond online courses. As the New York Times-bestselling authors of Big Data explain, the truly fascinating changes are actually occurring in how we measure students’ progress and how we can use that data to improve education for everyone, in real time, both on- and offline. Learning with Big Data offers an eye-opening, insight-packed tour through these new trends, for educators, administrators, and readers interested in the latest developments in business and technology.
"The digital revolution in education will see a fundamental shift from teaching to learning. Learning with Big Data offers a lively and engaging account of the tools that will make this shift not only possible but inevitable. We have customized clothes, coffee, and playlists; the classroom is next." — Anne-Marie Slaughter, President of New America Foundation, former Dean of Princeton University's Woodrow Wilson School
"Read this short but powerful book: the ideas not only set the stage for a modern theory of learning, but transform how teaching materials themselves can 'learn' and education can be tailored to the individual. The book shows why big data is a big, useful topic." — John Seely Brown, co-author of A New Culture of Learning, visiting scholar at USC, and former chief scientist at Xerox Corp.
"An inspiring and informed book about an unfolding transformation — not just in the way we learn, but in the way we learn about learning." — Jace Kohlmeier, Dean of Analytics, Khan Academy
"The best introduction to how big data will revolutionize — and improve — education for everybody. A fine and timely work." — Tyler Cowen, author of The Great Stagnation and Average Is Over
