I've been involved in a Business Intelligence (BI) project for the last few months so I'm a bit more attentive to stories about BI in the ed tech press. This article is from the Microsoft publicity machine but it's a pretty good outline of how BI is being used by educators as they use "predictive analytics with Power BI to group students according to specific needs, and allow teachers to deliver lessons based on a child’s learning style." It also allows them to blend open data with school data. "You can ask questions in natural language from the database such as on ‘enrolments by geographical region’ or by school type or local government area."
