During this session we'll play the game of "Assumptions vs Analytics." To start, we'll look at the story of why students drop out of high school. We'll look at how we can uncover the plot twist before it happens by looking back at the data from tens of thousands of high school dropouts to better see why they failed, when we could have known they were in trouble, and what we could have done to better support them to change the ending of their story. Then we'll see if big data can provide some clarity on the story behind the use of digital learning tools: which apps are being used, which aren't, and which may be impacting student achievement the most.
