Collaborative Construction and Inspection of Learner Models

  title={Collaborative Construction and Inspection of Learner Models},
  author={Juan-Diego Zapata-Rivera and J. Greer},
Learners working on the creation of conceptual maps become involved in a creative learning activity that involves “making sense” of new concepts and their relationships through modelling. These models can be seen as representations of the learners’ understanding of a particular topic domain. During subsequent learning activities, students can reflect upon the models they have built. In addition to domain knowledge, models can contain information about learners’ knowledge profiles and social… Expand

The role of roles in the analysis of interactions in collaborative environments
This document presents and discusses the ideas of the authors regarding the analysis of interactions in CSCL, as part of the initial steps of an ongoing research process oriented towards the development of systems that integrate online regulation and evaluation support functions. Expand


An XML-Based Tool for Building and Using Conceptual Maps in Education and Training Environments
A knowledge construction and navigation tool (KVT- Knowledge Visualization Tool) has been implemented using XML to represent the kinds of maps supported by thinking maps and/or frame games. Expand
Externalising Learner Modelling Representations
ViSMod, an interactive visualization tool for Bayesian learner models and ConceptLab, a knowledge construction and navigation system that uses XML-based conceptual maps to represent the learner's view of the domain are developed. Expand
Supporting Social Interaction in an Intelligent Collaborative Learning System
It is suggested that structured, high-level knowledge of student conversation in context may be sufficient for automating the assessment of group interaction, furthering the possibility of an intelligent collaborative learning system that can support and enhance the group learning process. Expand
Negotiated Collaborative Assessment through Collaborative Student Modelling
We propose an approach to computer-based assessment which offers the opportunity for the results of the assessment to be negotiated through the use of an open model of the student’s knowledge. ThisExpand
Promoting reflective interactions in a CSCL environment
The analyses show that use of the second structured interface in performing the problem-solving task is feasible for students, and that it promotes a task-focussed and reflective interaction. Expand
The Use of Multiple Student Modeling to Parameterize Group Learning
Recent criticism of ITS research for neglecting social aspects of learning is constructively answered by a practical attempt to extrapolate student modeling and intelligent learning support to groupExpand
Learning with Technology: A Constructivist Perspective
This book addresses how to use very specific types of technology and focuses on how technology can be used as a thinking tool to foster meaningful learning. The book approaches learning from aExpand
Promoting Effective Peer Interaction in an Intelligent Collaborative Learning System
The collaborative learning model described in this paper identifies the specific characteristics exhibited by effective collaborative learning teams, and based on these characteristics, suggests strategies for promoting effective peer interaction. Expand

Inspecting and Visualizing Distributed Bayesian Student Models
Considering students as active participants in the modelling process, this paper explores visualization and inspectability issues of Bayesian student modelling and presents ViSMod an integrated tool to visualize and inspect distributed BayesianStudent models. Expand
