I hope by now you are convinced that the data-driven approach is useful for language learning. But of course not every approach is appropriate for every context. I've hinted that certain applications of concordancer-based lesson creation may be more appropriate for more advanced learners. It's also probably worthwhile to consider other aspects of the learning situation when planning a lesson using data-driven learning.

Standard considerations for lesson planning, such as the age of the students, size of class, relative importance of technology in the learning environment, etc. certainly still apply. In addition, there is evidence that the data-driven approach's effectiveness is influenced by the aspect of language being learned. The grammatical structures, types of vocabulary and level of discourse being learned should all probably be carefully considered before any data-driven approach is decided on.

Wisdom about how effective data-driven learning (DDL) is in these various contexts exists in two forms: research results, and anecdotal evidence from educators who have used a DDL approach in designing learning. One For example, ...() shows that ... ...
