How do we best use digital technologies for learning? While twenty years ago students used handwritten notes and textbooks, today, they are instead using their laptops, learning from digital textbooks and YouTube videos.

Dr Vitomir Kovanovic works in the learning analytics field, which involves analysing student data from digital technologies. His aim is to use data mining and machine learning to understand how students use these technologies and help them in their learning.

Vitomir is also a passionate STEM educator, developing a Cluster analysis MOOC for newcomers to learning analytics, a learning analytics workshop for K-12 school teachers and the ‘SoLAR Spotlight’ learning analytics webinar series. He also codeveloped the EPIC challenges Program, an 8-week program for High Schools students designed to developed creativity and design thinking to real world challenges inspired by NASA.  

Vitomir completed his PhD in 2017 at the University of Edinburgh, School of Informatics. He is currently a Senior Lecturer at Education Futures, University of South Australia.
