Patricia Gilbert recently completed a two-year postdoctoral fellowship at Harvard University developing a new online learning model for critical education. Her current research is on the development and administration of online learning tools. Nada Dabbagh is an Associate Professor of Instructional Technology in the Graduate School of Education at George(More)
Implementation of agency in a cognitive system implies that certain beliefs, values and/or goals represented in the system become, if implicitly, attributed to the self of the agent. When the cognitive system becomes explicitly aware of this attribution, it acquires a self-regulation capacity allowing it to control, modify and develop its self-concept(More)
Significant progress can be made in the part of elementary school education that relies on intelligent tutoring systems (ITS), if the role of a referee and a peer advisor will be performed by a pedagogical agent that is a computer implementation of a cognitive architecture modeling the process of learning. Recent studies in cognitive architectures funded by(More)
Feedback is considered to be the bridge between what has been learned and what the student should know. Feedback can correct misconceptions, motivate learners, stimulate deep thinking, and guide future behavior. However, in the online environment instructors must rely upon technologies to deliver feedback to students. To better understand the prompts and(More)
Limitations of modern artificial intelligence are most evident in comparison with the human ability to self-regulate cognitive and learning processes. Is it possible to model the human self-regulation ability in artifacts? And vice versa, can a computer model of this sort help students to develop self-regulation skills? This work describes a blueprint of an(More)
