[publication] A Research Agenda to Deploy Technology Enhanced Learning with Augmented Reality in Industry #AugmentedREality #VirtualReality #tugraz

We did a short article about „A Research Agenda to Deploy Technology Enhanced Learning with Augmented Reality in Industry“ for this year „Mensch und Computer 2019“.

Abstract:

To apply Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) with Augmented Reality (AR) in industry, a suitable methodology is necessary. This work focuses on how to deploy and evaluate AR learning scenarios in industrial environments. The methodology evolved within the two EU projects FACTS4WORKERS and iDEV40 and has been improved iteratively. The first step is to investigate the use case at the industry partner. Then the appropriate concept is defined. The next step is to develop a first prototype. This prototype is then improved during several iterations according to the feedback of the industry partner. When the prototype reaches an appropriate Technology Readiness Level (TRL), a final evaluation is carried out to verify the software artifact against the gathered requirements.

[presentation] Erstellung und Einsatz von Lehr- und Lernvideos #tugraz #lehrvideo #imoox

Im Rahmen der Fachtagung „Lernprodukte/Erklärvideos – digitales Prüfen“ hat man mich gebeten, ein wenig über unsere Erfahrungen zu Lehr- und Lernvideos zu geben. Hier sind meine Folien:

Ich werde auch dabei den Lernvideo-Canvas vorstellen.

[app] 1×1 Trainer #tugraz #math #ios #android

Wir haben den 1×1 Trainer grundlegend überarbeitet und mit Handschrifterkennung ausgestattet. Die iOS-Version für iPhone und iPad gibt es schon länger [iOS-Version], nun ist es aber auch die Android-Version verfügbar. Ab sofort können die Kinder also auch dort die Zahlen per Finger eingeben und wir hoffen so, dass es noch einfacher wird mit der App umzugehen. Die Registierung kann direkt in der App oder auch über unsere LearningLab gemacht werden.

The 1×1 Trainer App with handwriting recognition is supposed to help children with learning multiplication tables. The numbers can be written with the finger.

TELucation #tugraz #sammelmappe

Wir haben an der TU Graz ein neues Projekt gestartet – eine Sammelmappe mit allen wichtigen Infos für unsere Lehrenden rund um das Thema Technology Enhanced Learning. Wir wollen hiermit den Einstieg in die digtal gestützte Lehre erleichtern und unterstützen wo wir nur können. Als Teaser ist auch ein kleines Video entstanden, welches wir natürlich niemand vorenhalten wollen:

[publication] Insights into Learning Competence Through Probabilistic Graphical Models #tugraz #research

We contributed to this year „Third IFIP TC 5, TC 12, WG 8.4, WG 8.9, WG 12.9 International Cross-Domain Conference (CD-MAKE 2019)“ with a publication titled „Insights into Learning Competence Through Probabilistic Graphical Models„.

Abstract:

One-digit multiplication problems is one of the major fields in learning mathematics at the level of primary school that has been studied over and over. However, the majority of related work is focusing on descriptive statistics on data from multiple surveys. The goal of our research is to gain insights into multiplication misconceptions by applying machine learning techniques. To reach this goal, we trained a probabilistic graphical model of the students’ misconceptions from data of an application for learning multiplication. The use of this model facilitates the exploration of insights into human learning competence and the personalization of tutoring according to individual learner’s knowledge states. The detection of all relevant causal factors of the erroneous students answers as well as their corresponding relative weight is a valuable insight for teachers. Furthermore, the similarity between different multiplication problems – according to the students behavior – is quantified and used for their grouping into clusters. Overall, the proposed model facilitates real-time learning insights that lead to more informed decisions.

[publication] Potentials of Chatbots for Spell Check among Youngsters #tugraz #chatbot #research #LearningAnalytic

We did an article about „Potentials of Chatbots for Spell Check among Youngsters“ for the first issue of the „International Journal of Learning Analytics and Artificial Intelligence for Education (iJAI)„.

Abstract:

Chatbots are already being used successfully in many areas. This publication deals with the development and programming of a chatbot prototype to support learning processes. This Chatbot prototype is designed to help pupils in order to correct their spelling mistakes by providing correction proposals to them. Especially orthographic spelling mistake should be recognized by the chatbot and should be replaced by correction suggestions stored in test data.

[publication] Setup of a Temporary Makerspace for Children at University: MAKER DAYS for Kids 2018 #tugraz #makereducation #makerdays

The conference proceeding of this year „Robotics in Education“ is online now and we contributed with a chapter about the MakerDays for Kids.

Abstract:

The maker movement has become a driving force for the new industrial revolution, whereby all learners should have the opportunity to engage. Makerspaces exist in different forms with different names and a variety of specializations. The MAKER DAYS for kids are a temporary open makerspace setting for children and teenagers with the goal to democratize STEAM education and social innovation and to empower young learners, especially girls, to shape their world. This publication presents the setup and results of a temporary makerspace at Graz University of Technology with more than 100 participants in four days in summer 2018 and discusses the role of new technologies as a trigger of making in education. Moreover, the MAKER DAYS implemented an innovative evaluation concept to document the participants’ activities in open and unstructured learning environments.
