Proposal Title

How Data Functions: Classroom Practices and School Policy

Proposal Track

Practice Report

Session Format

Symposium

Abstract

This symposium session is designed for educators and administrators to engage in an interactive dialogue exploring daily interactions between school policies on data and classroom practices. Beginning with the small group question, “What kinds of data does your school collect?”, the subsequent whole group conversation will move into different ways that data collection, as a school policy, intra-acts (Barad, 2007) in the classroom by considering the question “How does data function in your or your teachers’ classrooms?” Panelists will include various analytical tools in the discussion including neoliberalism (eg. Davies & Bansel, 2007; Klein, 2007; Nasir, et al, 2016) and becoming (Deleuze and Guattari, 1980/1987) in order to explore where we are in terms of data practices in schools, some factors contributing to how we got here and how we can move forward powerfully by introducing the concept of dis/entanglement.
