Drawing from nearly two years of discussions, the Working Group report “The Transformative Potential of Data for Learning” and its accompanying “Job Board for Data Governance and Management in the Education Sector” are global public goods that contribute to our common understanding of how to close the digital data divide and improve data practices in education.
The report takes the position that data for learning is a double-edged sword that hangs in a balance between benefits and risks. The potential power of leveraging data to improve learning is unevenly distributed around the world, resulting in global asymmetries related to data access, skills, and sovereignty. The Working Group report includes five recommendations to make the education data landscape less polarized and more equitable, ethical, and effective for learners everywhere.
Full Report will be published on Sept 16
