Social NetworkingResearch on building effective learning communities The Landing (http://landing.athabascau.ca) Harnessing the power of “Web 2.0” and “Web 3.0” Bridging the gap between formal and informal knowledge spaces Research on immersive environments (Sun Project Wonderland)Technology Enhanced Knowledge ResearchSlide *

7

Personalization & AdaptivityResearch on designing innovative paradigms, architectures and implementations in learning systems Individualized and customized learning in a global environment Learner, device, environment and context modelling Merging real-life objects with virtual interaction for authentic learningTechnology Enhanced Knowledge ResearchSlide *

8

Overall Research DirectionIndividualised learning in increasingly global educational environment Bridging the gap among different types of learners Support for: Mobile and life-long learners Just-in-time and on-demand learning Context adaptationSlide *

9

Vision~ Learning omnipresent and highly contextual ~Slide *

10

Personalization in ubiquitous learningExtensive modelling of learner’s actions, interactions, “mood”, trends of preferences, skill & knowledge levels, implicit and explicit changes in skill & knowledge levels Real-time monitoring of learner’s location, technology use, and change of situational aspectsSlide *

11

Learner awarenessPersonalization of learning experience through dynamic learner modeling Performance based model Cognitive trait model Learning stylesSlide *

12

Cognitive TraitsWorking Memory Capacity: allows us to keep active a limited amount of info (7+/-2 items) for short time (Miller, 1956). Inductive Reasoning Ability: is the ability to construct concepts from examples. Information Processing Speed: determines how fast the learners acquire the information correctly. Associative Learning Skill: is the skill to link new knowledge to existing knowledge. Domain Experience: is the familiarity of the domain concepts and skills. Domain Complexity: is the student perception regarding difficulty of the concepts in the domain.Slide *

Felder-Silverman Learning Style ModelEach learner has a preference on each of the dimensions Dimensions: Active – Reflective learning by doing – learning by thinking things through group work – work alone Sensing – Intuitive concrete material – abstract material more practical – more innovative and creative patient / not patient with details standard procedures – challenges Visual – Verbal learning from pictures – learning from words Sequential – Global learn in linear steps – learn in large leaps good in using partial knowledge – need „big picture“ serial – holisticSlide *

FSLSM – How to find out the learning style?Index of Learning Style (Felder & Soloman, 1997) 44-item questionnaire (11 questions per dimension)active+11reflective+1+3+5+7+9-11-9-7-5-3-1Strong preferenceStrong preferenceModerate preferenceModerate preferenceWell balancedTrack learners behavior to infer learning style Using Bayesian networks to detect learning styles Detecting learning styles in learning managment systemsSlide *

Technology awarenessPersonalization of learning experience through the identification of technological functionality Identify technologies available to the learner and surrounding the learner Dynamically optimize the content to suit the functionality of available technologiesSlide *

18

Location and surrounding awareness Personalization of learning experience as per surrounding environment Location based adaptation of learning content and collaboration activities Public databases of POIs QR Codes WiFi and Bluetooth access point identification Active and passive RFIDs Identifying context-aware semantically linked knowledge structures among different domainsSlide *
