The human labour of school data

216

The second paper from our ARC funded project on the datafication of schools is now out in the Oxford Review of Education: “The human labour of school data: exploring the production of digital data in schools“. The paper explores the different phases of work involved by three teachers, school leaders, administrative and technical staff, parents and students in ensuring that digital data is produced within schools. Rather than being a source of more efficient and machine-led work with data, the increased prevalence of digital data seems to perpetuate some of the less desirable features of schools as workplaces.
