Is There an “Education Graph”?

Audrey Watters, Hack Education, Nov 11, 2011
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Audrey Watters folows up Maciej Ceglowski’s post The Social Graph Is Neither, which I covered here a few days ago, by looking at the education graph. It is, as she notes, "partially a response to a recent Forbes article that likens the “social graph” to crude oil — as in “Drill, baby, drill” when it comes to the perceived value of the personal data." Watters argues "should we ask the same set of questions about the education or student graph? Is it a graph? Does it capture education? Does it represent 'the student' and her or his connection to learning?" These are good questions - of course, a student's Facebook activity would not represent their learning, and we would never expect this to be the case. But one wonders whether there isn't some other representation that could do so.
