Problem-based learning supported by semantic techniques

Esther Lozano, Jorge Gracia, Oscar Corcho, Richard A. Noble, Asunción Gómez-Pérez
2012 Interactive Learning Environments  
Problem-based learning has been applied over the last three decades to a diverse range of learning environments.  ...  When applied to conceptual modelling, and particularly to Qualitative Reasoning, the solutions to problems are models that represent the behaviour of a dynamic system.  ...  The DynaLearn 2 workbench, a system intended to allow learners to acquire conceptual knowledge, is used for creating the model.  ...

Teachable Agent [article]

Ailiya Borjigin
2015 arXiv   pre-print
To facilitate the involvement of educators into the game design, we develop an authoring tool for proposed ATA system, which can encapsulate the technical details and provide educational experts a natural  ...  way to convey domain knowledge to agent knowledge base.  ...  DynaLearn's Teachable Agent The educational software project, DynaLearn [62] , aims to offer an interactive learning environment, allowing students to construct and assess their conceptual knowledge.  ...

Persuasive Teachable Agent for Intergenerational Learning [article]

Su Fang Lim
2016 arXiv   pre-print
We argue that the PTA, an autonomous agent, capable of encouraging attitude and behavioural change can offer a more meaningful and engaging learning experiences for learners from different age groups.  ...  The PTA plays a crucial role in the development of future persuasive technologies in artificially intelligent agents.  ...  Dynalearn is another project that consist a teachable agent that mimics a less capable learner that allows for learning-by-teaching pedagogy to be applied in an intelligent learning environment.  ...

Artificial Persuasion in Pedagogical Games [article]

Zhiwei Zeng
2016 arXiv   pre-print
The project also proposes a more abstract and generalized quantitative model for the computations in the PTA.  ...  Firstly, the existing PTA model focuses on modelling the PTA's ability to persuade, while does not model its ability to be taught by the student and to practice the knowledge it has learnt.  ...  DynaLearn is an agent designed to facilitate the learning of conceptual knowledge in science subjects. The student teaches the agent by creating conceptual models in a graphical editor.  ...

Diagnosis and Assessment [chapter]

Psychosynthesis Counselling in Action  
In this deliverable we will explain the use of consistency-based diagnosis for providing automated assistance in knowledge modeling.  ...  Since QR knowledge construction is an open-ended domain, applying diagnosis in this way poses several problems. We will solve several of those problems by representation or algorithms.  ...  Particularly, by showing how the consistency-based approach is central to a communicative interaction between learners and an Interactive Learning Environment, particularly DynaLearn.  ...
