Big data & Ed Jan 2014


Two thoughts. I have been thinking about the mapping controversies/social cartography stuff as a way to bring this into education debates. Naive perhaps. It's really what you do with all that data, how it is translated, re-represented that matters.

And then there are examples of big data that offer a different resonance such as this from the Australian Tennis Open.


The problem for me is whether the paper is what the kiddies running this issue want or expect… usual implications for education or something that is more out of left field or further. My inclination is always towards the latter. Any number of folk will write the ponderous, sombre stuff: big data is big etc.
