Workshop: Self-Regulated Learning in Educational Technologies (SRL@ET)

CFP: Self-Regulated Learning in Educational Technologies (SRL@ET)

Educational technologies have been systematically shown to help students learn better at the domain level, be it math, reading, culture, etc. However, educational technologies are yet to achieve a similar success in helping students become better learners. To achieve that, educational technologies should help students improve their metacognitive and self-regulated learning skills and behaviors.

Workshop: Opportunities for Intelligent Behavior in Collaborative Learning Systems

CFP: Opportunities for Intelligent Behavior in Collaborative Learning Systems

Intelligent tutoring systems seek to individualize each student's learning
experience, but this need not necessitate that the experience itself be
solitary. A variety of recent systems have demonstrated ways in which an
adaptive learning environment can incorporate multiple learners. Similarly,
students using collaborative learning systems have been shown to benefit from
the introduction of adaptive support that targets the collaboration. In this
workshop, we invite discussion and seek to explore ways in which the
combination of collaborative and intelligent aspects of a system can benefit
the learner...

Workshop: Beyond Cross Fertilization: How to support Re-use, Integration, Synthesis & Uptake of AIED?

Call for Participation: Beyond Cross Fertilization: How to support Re-use, Integration, Synthesis & Uptake of AIED?

Woolf (2009) suggested the AIED community needs:

  • Cadres of bibliographies
  • Suites of project inventories
  • Component exchange communities
  • Global networks of test beds for intelligent learning environments

Three more workshops announced

Three new workshops have been announced and their call for papers are now available online.

Usability and Educational Technology, impact on study results. Usability has always been a critical issue for any computer application, but especially with regards to software created for use in experimental studies for better learning. One major research question is raised:How can one believe in the validity of study results when the application supporting the experiment is source of frustration, badly used by the participants, or not well adapted to the targeted user, due to its poor usability?

First Workshop on Artificial Intelligence in Education to Support the Social Inclusion of Communities (AIEDSIC). The Artificial Intelligence in Education community has spent more than 30 years researching the design of adaptive technologies to support learning. However, the issue of supporting social inclusion has never been directly addressed. Has AI in Education also missed an important connection with the real world? Read more ...

Corpus Analysis of Natural Language Dialogue for Building ITSs. Computer engagement with natural language dialogue is an important aspect of intelligent tutoring technology and computer supported collaborative learning systems. In addition to being an innate capability of the human organism, natural language is flexible and extensible and does not require the user to learn a new GUI. To form a scientific basis for machine processing of dialogue - either engaging in dialogue or processing dialogue data - many research groups have collected and analyzed corpora of human-human dialogues. Corpus analysis for system construction differs from corpus analysis for other purposes, including various types of linguistic, sociolinguistic or pedagogical analysis, for two reasons. First, technology researchers must focus on methods that can be implemented via computer in real time. Second, intelligent tutoring domains are often technical domains of discourse where a high degree of precision is required. Read more ...

Christchurch earthquake

A 6.3M (MM VIII, depth 5km) earthquake struck the Christchurch region on 22 February 2011. The earthquake struck the city hard causing multiple fatalities (currently at 155 and increasing) and widespread damage (to buildings and the main infrastructure). Aftershocks are still continuing as rescue teams from NZ and around the world continue to work amidst the rubble. Essential services (including power, water, sewerage) are being slowly restored.

Workshop: Learning by Modelling in Science Education

The workshop chairs have released the Call for Papers for the workshop on Learning by Modelling
in Science Education
. They invite submissions of short papers (4 pages including references) and long papers (up to 8 pages including references) that address topics relevant to Question Generation in general and to Question Generation shared tasks in particular.

Workshop: Authoring Simulation and Game-based Intelligent Tutoring

The Call for Papers for the Workshop titled "Authoring Simulation and Game-based Intelligent Tutoring" is now out. The use of scenario-based simulations and serious games for training has been well-accepted in many domains. While a small collection of advanced situated tutors exist, similar to standard intelligent tutors, creation of these systems requires a wide range of expertise and substantial resources.
