  author={Fabio Nauras Akhras and Paul Brna},
About 20 years ago, in a paper entitled "Computational Mathetics: the Missing Link of Artificial Intelligence in Education", John Self argued that AI in Education has missed its connection with formal AI, its theoretical side. Some people argued that this was necessary so that AI in Education (AIED) could be able to deliver real world applications. However, in the real world, half of the population lives with less than 3 dollars a day with many socially excluded from education, health and other…

Multimodal Interfaces for Inclusive Learning
In this paper, we propose that the artificial intelligence in education (AIED) community lead the charge in leveraging multimodal interfaces, in conjunction with artificial intelligence, to advance


Changing Minds: Computers, Learning, and Literacy
Rejecting the simplistic notion that the computer is merely a tool for more efficient instruction, diSessa shows how computers can be the basis for a new literacy that will change how people think and learn.
Designing e-learning games for rural children in India: a format for balancing learning with fun

Experimenting to Bootstrap Self-Regulated Learning
Modern theories of cognitive and constructive learning portray students as agents who set and pursue goals. More effective students select among cognitive tactics they use to approach goals and learn
A Time for Emoting: When Affect-Sensitivity Is and Isn't Effective at Promoting Deep Learning
An affect-sensitive version of AutoTutor, a dialogue based ITS that simulates human tutors, is developed and evaluated and indicated that the affective tutor improved learning for low-domain knowledge students, particularly at deeper levels of comprehension.
e-Learning Issues under an Affective Perspective
An Affective Educational Module for distance learning which is called MENTOR constitutes of three main components, the Emotional Component, the Teacher Component and the Visualization Component and its main purpose is to motivate appropriately the student in order to accomplish his learning goals.
