[publication] Why Will Technology Enhanced Language Learning be Essential for Pupils? #LearningAnalytics

Our publication about „Why Will Technology Enhanced Language Learning be Essential for Pupils?“ got published in the Bulletin of the Technical Committee on Learning Technology.
Abstract:

The availability of personal digital devices in schools and at home are offering new ways of engaging students in the area of language learning. In this publication, we present a new approach on writing and blogging for children aged 8 to 12 years, which is especially helpful for those who struggle with the acquisition of German orthography. On a web-based platform the pupils can write essays and blog them later on. Combined with learning analytics methods we offer individualized feedback during the process of writing and a training database with appropriate exercises to support the students‘ autonomous learning.

[publication] Learning Analytics and Spelling Acquisition in German-A First Prototype #IdERblog

At this year HCII conference we present a short overview about the IderBlog-project, titled „Learning Analytics and Spelling Acquisition in German-A First Prototype

Abstract:

Data-driven learning in combination with emerging academic areas such as Learning Analytics (LA) has the potential to tailor students’ education to their needs [1]. The aim of this article is to present a web-based training platform for primary school pupils who struggle with the acquisition of German orthography. Our objective is the improvement in their writing and spelling competences. The focus of this article is on the development of the platform and the details concerning the requirements and the design of the User Interface (UI). In combination with Learning Analytics, the platform is expected to provide deeper insight into the process of spelling acquisition. Furthermore, aspects of Learning Analytics will help to develop the platform, to improve the exercises and to provide better materials in the long run.
