Leveraging Learning Analytics for Individualized and Equitable Education: A Student-Centered Approach to Negotiating Learning Pathways

Potential Abstract:
Individualized education approaches have gained increasing attention in recent years as a means to address the diverse needs and learning styles of students. At the same time, the pursuit of equitable education remains a critical challenge in ensuring that all students have equal opportunities to succeed. This research article explores the potential of learning analytics to support a student-centered approach to education, focusing on the negotiation and adaptation of learning pathways to promote both individualized learning experiences and educational equities.

Drawing upon the fields of artificial intelligence and education, this study proposes a novel framework that integrates learning analytics with student-centered strategies to facilitate the negotiation of learning pathways. By harnessing the power of learning analytics, educators can gain insights into individual students’ learning behaviors, preferences, and progress. These analytics-driven insights inform the negotiation process, enabling educators to collaboratively design personalized learning pathways that align with students’ unique needs and aspirations.

The proposed framework also addresses the challenge of educational equities by guiding educators in identifying and mitigating potential inequities that may arise during the negotiation process. By leveraging learning analytics, educators can proactively identify patterns of privilege or disadvantage and adjust the negotiation process accordingly, ensuring that all students have equal opportunities to engage in meaningful and relevant learning experiences.

This research article presents a comprehensive review of the existing literature on individualized education, equities in education, and the application of learning analytics in educational settings. It also explores real-world examples and case studies that demonstrate how the proposed framework can be implemented and its potential impact on student outcomes.
