Professor Roy Pea conducts research on how innovations in computing and communications technologies and related educational practices influence learning, thinking, and educational systems. In collaboration with the Gates Foundation, he will use this grant to develop a set of planning activities to help build a new field of learning analytics and educational data-mining, and, ultimately, create the infrastructure--tools, practices and a cadre of experts--to capture, derive meaning from, and use the extensive educational data generated by learners using digital learning tools.
