The Ecology of Analytics in Education: Stakeholder Interests in Data-Rich Educational Systems

Ulf Dalvad Berthelsen, Morten Tannert


In this paper, we suggest an ecological perspective on the role of analytics in education. We discuss how different stakeholder positions in education points to different interests in using analytics. As a point of reference, we examine the Danish case of ICT integration in primary and lower secondary school (Danish: Folkeskolen) in order to study cases of emerging and at times conflicting stakeholder interests. On this basis, we discuss how this complexity of the educational ecosystem affects different stakeholder positions within the field.
