[publication] Diagnose leicht gemacht (Learning Analytics in der Schule) #LearningAnalytics #tugraz

Wir freuen uns, dass unser Beitrag zu Learning Analytics in der Schule nun veröffentlicht wurde:

Zusammenfassung:
Wenn digitale Informationssysteme im schulischen Kontext genutzt werden, entstehen auch Sammlungen von Daten zum Lernverhalten. Einige Anwendungen sammeln und analysieren diese Daten gezielt, um damit Lernende zu unterstützen. Das Forschungsfeld dazu heißt “Learning Analytics” und ist erst rund 10 Jahre alt (Leitner et al., 2019). In diesem Beitrag möchten wir zwei Anwendungen aus dem Schulkontext vorstellen, die Datenanalysen einsetzen um Lernfortschritte von Schüler/innen zu beobachten und Rückmeldung in Echtzeit zu geben (s. Ebner, Leitner, Ebner 2020). Wir nennen zudem Chancen und Herausforderungen von Learning Analytics im Schulkontext.

[publication] Learning Analytics in der Schule – Anforderungen an Lehrerinnen und Lehrer #tugraz #LearningAnalytics

Unser Beitrag zu „Learning Analytics in der Schule – Anforderungen an Lehrerinnen und Lehrer“ wurden nun in einem tollen Buch über „Bildung und Digitalisierung“ publiziert.

Zusammenfassung:
Dieser Beitrag ermöglicht eine kurze Einführung in das Themenfeld Learning Analytics mit einem besonderen Blick auf den Schulunterricht. Heute erscheint es noch weit entfernt, bis derartige Anwendungen im deutschsprachigen Raum flächendeckend Fuß fassen können. Durch die voranschreitende Technologie werden jedoch solche Anwendungen und die Auseinandersetzung mit der Frage, inwieweit künstliche Intelligenz Aspekte der eigentlichen Lehre ergänzen und erset-zen kann, zunehmend zum Diskussionsgegenstand. Die vorliegende Publikation zielt darauf ab, Learning Analytics selbst und die damit verbundenen Herausforderungen zu definieren. Anschlie-ßend werden einige allgemeine Beispiele genannt, ehe auf zwei webbasierte Informationssysteme im Detail eingegangen wird-dem Einmaleins-Trainer und dem Programm zum Aufbau von Schreibkompetenz IDeRblog. Auf Basis der dort gewonnen Erkenntnisse und Erfahrungen werden drei wesentliche Anforderungen für Lehrerinnen und Lehrer abgleitet: statistische und digitale Kom-petenz sowie grundsätzliches Wissen im Bereich Datenschutz. Der Beitrag schließt mit der Frage, inwieweit diese zukünftig in die Lehrerbildung integriert werden können und müssen.

[publication] Implementation of Interactive Learning Objects for German Language Acquisition in Primary School based on Learning Analytics Measurements #edil2020 #tugraz #alexa #TEL

At this year EDMedia conference (online) we did a publication about „Implementation of Interactive Learning Objects for German Language Acquisition in Primary School based on Learning Analytics Measurements“.

Abstract:
Obviously, reading and writing are important qualities nowadays, likely more so than ever before. Whether that be in school, work or everyday life, it is a skill set that is omnipresent. This is also evident by the countless contributions that are created and published on various online platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube or WhatsApp. In order to avoid being misunderstood, it is crucial to have the ability to express one’s written thoughts in a structured and error-free manner. To help children in the early age with their spelling skills, the IDeRBlog platform provides a possibility to reach their goals and support their German spelling learning process. On this platform children can create own blog entries which are then corrected by teachers and an intelligent dictionary before they can finally publish it. Mistakes made by the kids are evaluated and on basis of these mistakes, exercises can be recommended so that the kids can improve their spelling. This paper will present these exercises (also called learning objects), which should help children to practice writing, reading and also listening carefully. It focuses not only on the evaluation setup and process but also results will be explained in the end.

[publication] Learning Analytics and Spelling Acquisition in German – The Path to Individualization in Learning #hcii20 #iderblog

We did a contribution titled „Learning Analytics and Spelling Acquisition in German – The Path to Individualization in Learning“ for this year HCII conference.

Abstract:
This paper shows how Learning Analytic Methods are combined with German orthography in the IDeRBlog-project (www.iderblog.eu). After a short introduction to the core of the platform – the intelligent dictionary – we focus on the presentation and evaluation of a new training format. The aim of this format is, that pupils can train misspelled words individually in a motivating and didactic meaningful setting. As a usability test was run with twenty one third graders, we are able to present the results of this evaluation.

[publication] Individualized Differentiated Spelling with Blogs – Implementing and Individualizing (IDeRBlog ii) #iderblog #hcii2020 #tugraz

We did a contribution titled „Individualized Differentiated Spelling with Blogs – Implementing and Individualizing (IDeRBlog ii)“ for this year HCII conference.

Abstract:
The paper depicts the Erasmus+ project “Individual DifferEntiated correct writing with Blogs – Individualizing and Implementing (IDeRBlog ii)”. IDeRBlog ii is a follow-up project evolving the result of IDeRBlog, a blogging platform for pupils aged eight and above. The project is an international cooperation between 3 countries in Europe. This paper presents an overview of possibilities in context of individualization of the exercises. Further, it covers the benefits of using the platform, e.g. learning about media competences, how to communicate online and the possibility to get individualized exercises for supported during their writing process by the feedback of the intelligent dictionary.

[publication] Mobile Learning Applications for Android und iOS for German Language Acquisition based on Learning Analytics Measurements #LearningAnlytics #IdERblog

We did a contribution to the International Journal of Learning Analytics and Artificial Intelligence for Education (iJAI) titled „Mobile Learning Applications for Android und iOS for German Language Acquisition based on Learning Analytics

Abstract:
The use of digital media is increasingly being promoted in school teaching. Since this aspect changes the interaction between teachers and pupils, this research is concerned with the development of a prototype of a mobile application for Android and iOS, in which different learning applications for language acquisition are offered on the basis of learning analytical measurements provided by experts in the field. By logging and collecting interactions of the user, it is possible to create a variety of statistical evaluations and thus respond to the needs and weaknesses of students. For the evaluation of the application, a user experience test was carried out, whereby the child-friendly operation of the application was tested. Due to the very positive feedback, the design was found to be good and can therefore be further developed.
