Call For Proposals (https://easychair.org/cfp/LAKHackathon2018)
The Hack@LAK18 is a pre-conference workshop of the 8th International Learning Analytics and Knowledge Conference (LAK). It is the fourth in the series of Hackathons held at LAK, where we encourage a hands-on approach to combining novel data sources in a realistic infrastructure for the benefit of Learning. The approach is multi-disciplinary, reviewed from all angles, self-organising and team building. Anyone is welcome to participate as long as they are motivated to be politely critical and work towards and expand common objectives.
Please feel free to bring along your research questions, datasets and methodologies to the workshop for incorporation in the multidisciplinary activities. If you would like to suggest open research questions that you think should be addressed at the event, then please see our Call for Proposals which is open until December 18. However, you don’t have to have submitted a proposal in order to participate!
The event itself will take place on March 5-9, 2018 in Sydney, Australia.

Last week the European Conference on Technology Enhanced Learning (#ECTEL2017) took place in Tallinn University with an overarching theme: "data-driven approaches in education". This year's conference focused on the role of data and learning analytics as means for deciphering and improving learning and teaching practices.
In the beautiful hall of Tallinna Ülikool took place the annual conference of the Lifelong Learning Platform <Education in the Digital World> a flipped e-discussion taking place also on Twitter with the #LLLPAC17 hashtag.
The digital Fishbowl gathered Civil Society representatives of European NGOs active in the Lifelong learning field and was coordinated by the Lifelong Learning Platform.
The Fishbowl touched upon the most burning issues around Digital Technologies in Education like neutrality, handwriting vs keyboard, BYOD and GAFAM.
While sitting on my train back from Brussels after the European Education and Training & Youth Forum 2016 (ETYForum) I thought it would have been useful to debrief my general feeling of frustration and disillusion I realised I had after the event.
