Shifting perspectives: Learning from or knowing with personal data?

Abstract [en]

Is personal data gathered through body monitoring devices the learning resource it is said to be by its proponents?  If so, are the provided statistics and notifications the “reflective devices” they are meant to be? This presentation will show how people physically get in touch (with their fingers) with their data through touch-screen interfaces in the apps and how these re-enactments are claimed by the users to be “meaningful” when they connect with already existing embodied knowing from participating in the situations registered by the app. These findings suggest that there might be reasons to re-think the cognitive-based epistemological claims to knowledge that flows through talk about learning by reflecting on personal data. It also urges us to consider the implications of bringing in non-representational dimensions of knowing to the fore when discussing the pedagogical impact of personal digital data in everyday lives.
