Big Data and Education: What's the Big Idea?


What exactly does Big Data offer for education? That's the big question that will provide the focus an upcoming event in London later this month.


The conference aims to explore some of the key questions currently surrounding big data and education, including:


  •  What are the possibilities and the limits of big data in improving education?
  •  How can big data help to reform educational delivery and enhance learning?
  •  Where can academia partner with industry to develop, mine and analyse legal and meaningful data sources in the hope of delivering radically improved learning?
  •  How can those involved in education make the most of this digital revolution?
  •  What should Europe do to stay ahead of the pack as this revolution takes on the world?.


The conference is being run under the umbrella of TECY (Technology, Education, Culture, Youth), a series of policy events organised by the European Commission and DIGITALEUROPE. This fourth TECY Conference is organised by the UCL Big Data Institute in partnership with Reed Elsevier.
