This session intends to provide CLS attendees with a survey of how researchers and designers are working at the intersection of video games, educational data mining, and notions of connected learning. In the first part of the symposium, participants will hear from several projects that are using data generated from game play to describe and understand their players and how the the resulting analysis provides new insights for game design and new ways to describe learning and knowing enacted within games. The session will conclude with a demonstration of of an educational data mining process using using live data from national audiences playing a middle school science game in schools. The panelists and audience will discuss and critique each step of the process, from the validity of the events being recorded to the player models that are constructed from the data.
