Knowledge, Learning, Community

I haven't read the book (and probably won't unless there's an open access version) but this assertion is interesting. "This book is about how educational data are produced and for what purposes, and about the technologies and companies that generate and process it. And it’s about fantasy. A ‘big data imaginary’ of education is not just hype dreamt up in Silicon Valley, but a normative vision of education for the future shared by many." Se also Audrey Watters, The Weaponization of Education Data.
