Data-driven technology transforms educational practices as it requires to determine any situation. But, process-ontological perspectives conceive social situations as indeterminate. Productive moves thus allow to determine a situation by creating it and thereby become transactional. Based on this epistemological foundation, the talk conceptualizes "Bildung" as ontological and learners' moves as transactional and poetic. Those poetic moves are contrasted with the regulatory moves of state-of-the-art data-driven technology.
