Learning is a marked change in the conceptual representation of the world, in naturally intelligent entities, such as humans, as well as in artificially intelligent entities. Analytics aims at the generation of situational awareness, specifically, moments of insight that effect such a marked change and the enablers of the change. In that, Learning Analytics is the study of detection, analysis, and generation of moments of insights about learning experiences of naturally or artificially intelligent entities. It enriches learning experiences as a measurable consequence of these moments of insights. In infusing authenticity to learning experiences, this chapter discusses abstraction-oriented pedagogy at one end of a continuum and reality-oriented pedagogy at the other end and offers a characterization of this continuum.
