Can We Have a Waze App for Learning?

Can simple and beautiful visualizations unlock the power of learning? Big Data gets all the buzz, but data without Insights is useless. In this session we will demonstrate new frontiers in learning science and advanced analytics through the art of interactive visualizations. What if we view learning as a journey? How can we equip the driver or pilot with the best navigational tools? And if the instructor is air traffic control, how can they ensure that all planes arrive at their destination safely, effectively and on time?
