Telekom Report AI@School – Teaching and Learning with Artificial Intelligence

Telekom Report AI@School – Teaching and Learning with Artificial Intelligence

July 8, 2021
Project, Publication, Report
Many modern educational technologies already contain aspects of artificial intelligence (AI) - in applications for school organisation as well as for teaching and testing and for learning and practising. Examples are learning platforms or learning apps that adapt the task programme to the learner's competence profile But where do AI-supported, learning-promoting applications currently stand in their development? What already exists? What are the potentials, challenges and risks in this field? How far along are other countries in their development? The Deutsche Telekom Foundation and its partners are investigating these questions. For example, the mmb Institute, in cooperation with the German Research Centre for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) and the Leibniz Institute for Human Development and Educational Information (DIPF), has prepared a market and trend analysis. For this purpose, the study's authors…

Kickoff Meeting of HICOF-DL – Highly Informative and Competence-based Feedback for Digital Learning

Kickoff Meeting of HICOF-DL – Highly Informative and Competence-based Feedback for Digital Learning

June 1, 2021
Computational Psychometrics, Higher Education, Learning Analytics, Project
Currently, almost all students learn only digitally at home, because in the wake of the COVID 19 pandemic, universities have largely converted their teaching to online courses. But the virtual lectures and seminars often still lack individual feedback for learners. A new project conducted by the DIPF | Leibniz Institute for Human Development and Educational Information and the Goethe University Frankfurt aims to change that. The researchers want to develop a software tool that uses modern, automated evaluation methods to help provide accurate feedback. Derzeit lernen fast alle Studierenden nur digital zu Hause, denn im Zuge der COVID-19-Pandemie haben die Hochschulen ihren Lehrbetrieb größtenteils auf Online-Veranstaltungen umgestellt. Doch den virtuellen Vorlesungen und Seminaren mangelt es häufig noch an individuellen Rückmeldungen für die Lernenden. Ein neues, vom DIPF | Leibniz-Institut für…

Kickoff Meeting: MILKY-PSY – Multimodal Immersive Learning with Artificial Intelligence for Psychomotor Skills

March 5, 2021
Digitalisation, Higher Education, Multimodal Learning Analytics, Project
Those who want to learn a sport train new psychomotor skills. Until now, this has required role models such as teachers on site who explain, demonstrate and assess certain processes. A consortium around the Cologne Game Lab of the TH Köln is developing a learning environment with artificial intelligence (AI) to support the training process as part of the joint research project MILKI-PSY.   Wer eine Sportart erlernen will, trainiert neue psychomotorische Fähigkeiten. Bislang werden dafür Vorbilder wie Lehrerinnen und Lehrer vor Ort benötigt, die bestimmte Abläufe erklären, zeigen und beurteilen. Ein Konsortium um das Cologne Game Lab der TH Köln entwickelt im Rahmen des Verbundforschungsprojekts MILKI-PSY eine Lernumgebung mit künstlicher Intelligenz (KI), die den Trainingsprozess unterstützen soll. Künstlerische, sportliche und handwerkliche Tätigkeiten erfordern psychomotorische Fähigkeiten, bei denen körperliche Bewegungen mit…

Learning Analytics Anwendungen für den Hochschuleinsatz – Eine praxisnahe Übersicht

Learning Analytics Anwendungen für den Hochschuleinsatz – Eine praxisnahe Übersicht

February 24, 2021
Open access, Project, Publication, Report, Technical paper
Das Forschungsfeld Learning Analytics wächst in den letzten Jahren beständig. Mit dem Wachstum entstanden eine Vielzahl von Technologien und Anwendungen. Diese reichen von der Durchführung von kleinen Machbarkeitsstudien mit innovativen, prototypischen Anwendungen bis hin zu in großen empirischen Studien evaluierten kommerziellen Systemen. Es ist jedoch für potentielle Anwender von Learning Analytics schwierig, die Forschungslandschaft zu überschauen und sich einen Einblick in die Thematik zu verschaffen. Folglich sind viele Hochschulen und Lehrende beim Einsatz von Learning Analytics zögerlich, da alleine ein Überblick über die Möglichkeiten eine hohe Einarbeitungszeit erfordert. Auf Basis des ersten Verhaltenskodex für Trusted Learning Analytics (Hansen, Rensing, Herrmann, Drachsler, 2020), der vom Innovationsforum Trusted Learning Analytics des Projektes: Digital gestütztes Lehren und Lernen in Hessen (digLL) im Januar 2020 veröffentlicht wurde, möchten wir mit diesem Report einen Überblick…
