  1. Anticipating fair futures through educational data practices

    Part of the ‘Why Talk About Data (in Education)’ Online Colloquium, University of Sheffield, November 2020. Abstract: In this talk, I will draw on ethnographic research in a secondary school to explore how data came to play a role in shaping educational practices through defining what could be known about pupils, teachers and learning, and through determining the future outcomes that were made possible. This research raised questions about the role of data practices in shaping ‘fair’ future outcomes for pupils and limiting the possibilities of more open-ended educational futures. These questions can help us explore how claims of ‘unfair’ educational algorithmic decisions might reveal contested notions of how fairness is produced through data, and the limits of transparency as a response to questions of fairness.

  2. The Datafication of Primary and Early Years Education

    HHCP Co-Director, and Associate Professor of the Sociology of Education Alice Bradbury outlines how policy and private companies have impacted teaching. These impacts are outlined in the framework ‘The 5 Ps of Datafication’ to help categorise the different areas of education affected by the increased collection of data in primary and the early years.

  3. The surprising non-appearance of the datafied school

    Prof Neil Selwyn, Professor of Maths Science & Technology, Monash University Dr Luci Pangrazio, Research Fellow in Digital Literacies, Deakin University This presentation considers an unexpected finding from our ongoing research into digital data use in Australian high schools – why is it that critical concerns over the steady ‘datafication’ of education are not readily reflected in current school data practices? We first identify apparent tensions between: (i) established ‘teacherly’ logics of ‘data-driven’ schooling; and (ii) emerging ‘datafied’ practices associated with digital systems, platforms and devices. In particular, we consider how promises/threats of digital dataism appear to be largely subsumed into prevailing institutional logics of state bureaucracy and professionalism. We then consider the extent to which these ‘school data’ logics can endure amid the increased digitisation of K-12 education and commercial pushes for personalised learning. Alternately, what scope might there be to encourage more resistant appropriations of digital data by otherwise marginalised groups within school communities?

  4. Deconstructing data traps: Where to draw the line?

    This think piece sets out some of the issues a team of researchers at UCL have faced in documenting how English primary schools have dealt with the stresses and strains that COVID-19 has produced in our data-driven system. I will consider how and in what ways our research project findings might be able to disrupt the dominant narratives about system gaps and the urgent need to close them that the crisis has provoked.

  5. Data harms and inequalities

    Prof Helen Kennedy, Professor of Digital Society, University of Sheffield Data-driven technologies, automated and algorithmic systems, machine learning and AI are transforming society. They’re having wide-ranging effects, including numerous benefits, but they’re far from straightforward, and their use can result in harms as well as benefits. So we need to question claims that datafication will simply lead to a better society. In fact, it feeds into and is fed into by inequalities. Whether we talk about harms, inequalities, discrimination, bias, injustice or unfairness, the negative effects of data-related change and data-driven systems are not experienced equally by all. This is why we need to talk about data in education.

  6. Stephen Cave On Immortality

    We’re all afraid of the Reaper — and we’re all pursuing strategies to deny, defy or defeat him. Whether we hope to quaff the elixir of life, to rise again, to live on as a spirit or through leaving a legacy, we’re all following one of four paths that promise a route to life everlasting. Our striving for eternity shapes everything from our choice of breakfast to the clash of civilisations. But Cave argues that the pursuit of immortality leads us astray: it promotes division and extremism, diverts us from present problems, and cultivates a self-centred worldview. He wants to show us why the quest to live forever makes sinners of us all. But he will also present us with an alternative. Drawing from ancient philosophy and modern science, he will show us how coming to terms with mortality will make us happier, wiser and better people. Stephen Cave is a philosopher, critic and broadcaster. He has been both an academic, studying and teaching philosophy, and a diplomat, negotiating international treaties. His first book, Immortality: The Quest to Live Forever and How It Drives Civilization (2012), has received wide international acclaim. This secular sermon took place on Sunday 17th March 2013 at Conway Hall, London.

  7. Alain de Botton and Ayishat Akanbi | Studio B: Unscripted

    On this episode of Studio B Unscripted, philosopher Alain de Botton is in conversation with stylist and social commentator Ayishat Akanbi. A best-selling author, whose books have been described as a ‘philosophy of everyday life’, de Botton founded The School of Life, a social enterprise determined to make learning relevant in today’s culture using philosophy to help others ‘live wisely and well’. Ayishat Akanbi is a fashion stylist and writer. Through her work and online following she confronts complex issues related to surviving in today’s society. She uses her platform to comment on and call out injustice and inequality. This meeting of two minds from different backgrounds explores a range of topics from ancient Greek tragedies and Russian literature, to racism, social media and loneliness. The topics of conversation revolve around the nature of good vs evil, the notion of empathy towards others and how emotional intelligence can be a vehicle towards a better society for all. The views expressed in this programme are the guests’ own and do not necessarily reflect Al Jazeera’s editorial stance. Studio B, Unscripted is a free-flow conversation between two guests and a small audience, with no mediation, no MC, no TV presenter - focusing on what brings us all together and how we can tackle and discuss so…
