So you've gone blended, or are an online school, and all of a sudden you have students clicking and tapping and generating tons of data. What is the point of all of this data? What should it do? How can it work better for us? We will discuss the benefits and detriments of the data rich world educators are finding themselves in, and how data should, and is being harnessed not to replace teachers, but rather to empower more effective teacher-student interaction.

I hope people will leave with...
1. A dissatisfaction with the lackluster data tools available in most current LMS.
2. A desire to push for systems that manage student data well, so that computers can do what computers do best, and teachers can do what people do best.
