Hendrik Drachsler gave a keynote @ the LDE CEL Annual Meeting under the theme ‘Developing a Culture of Learning Analytics'. Hendrik summarized the achievements of the Highly Informative and Learning Analytics (HILA) research program, that is the successor of the Trusted Learning Analytics research program conducted in Frankfurt, Germany.  After two years of digital annual meetings, finally CEL could invite again to their annual meeting 2022 at the CEL Teaching Lab. Among keynotes from Simon Buckingham Shum (University of Technology Sydney), and Alyssa Friend Wise (New York University), Hendrik presented the latest research outcomes on Highly Informative and Learning Analytics (HILA) research program. Highly informative and competency-based feedback is costly and can be best given in small teacher-to-learner settings. According to research, feedback has a powerful effect on learning success;…

The German podcast "FutureSchool" looks at the classroom of the future and which technical aids for learning could be conceivable, but are also already being developed. Luis and DIPF education expert and our colleague Dana Kube consider together where technology is superior to teachers and when, in turn, teachers are unbeatable as real people with real experiences: https://blog.bildungsserver.de/klassenzimmer-der-zukunft/ The three-part podcast "FutureSchool" was created as part of the BMBF project "enorM - Lernen von (ÜBER)MORGEN". In the project, which is part of the "Science Year 2022 - Inquired about!", pupils and researchers have exchanged ideas in numerous formats, for example about new subjects and digital learning support.

Invited talks about providing feedback with learning analytics

Assessment, Feedback, General education, Invited talk, Learning Analytics, Self-Regulation
In the month of November, Ioana Jivet was invited to share her work on two occasions. The first was an invited lecture in the course FDH3006 Introduction to Learning Analytics part of a PhD Program at KTH Stockholm in collaboration with the University of Bergen, Norway and the University of Copenhagen, Denmark. The talk covered the topic of "Generating highly informative feedback with learning analytics" and addressed the question of how we can design effective feedback to students in online environments using learning analytics. The second talk was given as part of the event 100 DAYS OF... Data for Learning organised by the Centre for Education and Learning at TU Delft. The presentation covered the topic of student facing-learning analytics and goal setting. The talk was recorded and is available…

BR Radio: Roboter statt Lehrerinnen und Lehrer? Wie sollte die Schule der Zukunft aussehen?

BR Radio: Roboter statt Lehrerinnen und Lehrer? Wie sollte die Schule der Zukunft aussehen?

Artificial Intelligence, Invited talk, Learning Analytics, Learning Design, Robots in Education, School
Ist es denkbar, dass wir irgendwann keine echten Lehrer*innen mehr haben? Stattdessen fahren Roboter durch das Klassenzimmer und erklären alles? Wäre das überhaupt gut – wenn ja wie? Lasst uns gemeinsam darüber reden. Diese Sendung funktioniert in zwei Richtungen – ihr könnt natürlich alle Fragen stellen über Roboter in der Schule. UND: Ihr könnt einem Forscher sagen, bei was ihr wirklich gerne einen Roboter hättet. Denn das ist der Beruf von unserem Gast Onur Karademir – er promoviert im Bereich der Educational Technologies und findet raus, wann Lerntechnologien helfen und wann nicht.

Keynote: Artificial Intelligence and Immersive Technologies for Feedback Augmentation

Keynote: Artificial Intelligence and Immersive Technologies for Feedback Augmentation

Invited talk, Keynote
On 5th October 2022, Dr Daniele Di Mitri was invited to give a keynote workshop at the SITE interactive online conference. Keynote Workshop: Artificial Intelligence and Immersive Technologies for Feedback Augmentation Abstract: Twenty-first-century learners are continuously required to nurture their competencies by acquiring new knowledge and mastering new skills. A way to meet this significant demand for learning is to offer learners continuous instruction and timely feedback. In the internet era, learners have access to a large variety of educational content outside formal education curricula, including online courses or video lectures. Unfortunately, access to content alone is not sufficient for guaranteeing learning. What is needed, and often lacking, is proper guidance and feedback. Artificial Intelligence (AI) systems can provide automatic, personalised, real-time feedback to learners in distance learning settings when…

On 30 March 2022, Hendrik Drachsler gave an invited keynote at the LERN conference 2022 where he reported on the latest research on data-driven high informative feedback in higher education and schools. The talk focused on the experience of edutec.science research collective that has been gained in the projects DIFA, HIKOF-DL, AFLEK and ALICE. The presentation provided an overview of actionable and supportive feedback to learners as well as the various technical products that the EduTec group has developed. It, therefore, applies web technology to support meta-cognitive and collaborative learning skills with high-informative feedback methods. Hendrik applies validated measurement instruments from the field of psychometrics and investigates to what extent Learning Analytics interventions can reproduce the findings of these instruments. He discussed the lessons learned from implementing TLA systems. He…

While in his research visit to the United States, Dr Daniele Di Mitri was invited to present at the Brown Bag presentation series organised by the Faculty of Educational Communication and Technology which is part of the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development. What Is a Brown Bag Meeting? A brown bag meeting is an informal meeting or training that generally occurs in the workplace around lunchtime. This type of meeting is referred to as a brown bag meeting or a brown bag seminar because participants typically bring their lunches, which are associated with being packed in brown paper bags. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IeXrDohRnUU Presentation Title: Restoring Context in Distance Learning with Artificial Intelligence and Multimodal Learning Experiences with Daniele Di Mitri Presentation Date: Tuesday, February 1st, 2022 | 12:00 pm…

Invited talk
On 18th November 2021, Dr Daniele Di Mitri was invited to give a guest lecture to the Human-AI Interaction course at Carnegie Mellon University. The course is organised by Haiyi Zhu, Steven Wu and it resonates with Di Mitri's seminar Responsible AI for Human support. Abstract of the guest lecture: This guest lecture will focus on artificial intelligence in education. We start the lecture with a short history of AI systems in education; we will then introduce the concept of Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITS), the idea of providing automatic and personalised feedback for learners and provide some examples of modern ITSs. Additionally, we look at alternative and more indirect applications of AI in education and their potential support and benefits in education. Finally, we consider how modern multimodal and multi-sensor interfaces…
