Categorical Theories in Learning Analytics: A Transformative Approach to Building a Commons

Potential Abstract:
Recent advancements in learning analytics have provided educators with powerful tools to analyze and enhance student learning outcomes. However, the application of categorical theories within the context of learning analytics remains underexplored. This research paper aims to bridge this gap by proposing a transformative approach that integrates categorical theories into the design and implementation of learning analytics systems. Drawing on insights from both artificial intelligence and education research, this study advocates for the development of a shared commons where educators can collaboratively build, test, and refine categorical models to improve student success.

By leveraging categorical theories, educators can more effectively categorize and analyze diverse data points to gain deeper insights into student learning patterns. This approach enables the identification of underlying patterns and relationships within educational data, leading to more personalized and adaptive interventions. Through the establishment of a commons, educators can contribute to a collective knowledge base and benefit from shared resources and expertise in applying categorical theories to learning analytics.

This research contributes to the growing body of literature on the intersection of artificial intelligence and education, highlighting the potential of categorical theories to enhance the effectiveness of learning analytics systems. By fostering a culture of collaboration and knowledge exchange, educators can harness the power of categorical models to drive continuous improvement in teaching and learning practices.
