Video: Big Data and the Excellence Revolution

In this video from TEDxAmsterdamED 2013, Jelte de Jong discusses his foundation that seeks to solve educational problems using learning analytics and Big Data.

Excellence is driven by the quality of thousands of micro decisions that teachers make every day. Today, educators pride themselves on ‘fact-based’ decisions. In reality these ‘facts’ (e.g. test results) obstruct balanced, intuitive decision-making. Soon Big Data will revolutionize education. Jelte illustrates this through a case study on dyslexia research.
