In this position paper we suggest that Learning Analytics for Learners (LAL) requires new digital competences of learners. The use of Open Learner Models, Learning Analytics, and Visual Analytics creates new opportunities for learners, but our own research indicates that digital competence to take advantage of these opportunities needs to be extended to specifically address data literacy and use. We outline how our framework for data literacy and use for teaching can guide research to develop a framework for data literacy and use for learning, and identify a number of research questions.
