The SSS as an Infrastructure for WP LA

  1. 1. http://Learning-Layers-eu Learning Layers Scaling up Technologies for Informal Learning in SME Clusters Visualizing workplace learning data with the SSS Dashboard Adolfo Ruiz Calleja, Sebastian Dennerlein, Tobias Ley, Elisabeth Lex Edinburgh, 25th April 2016
  2. 2. http://Learning-Layers-eu Index 2 • Introduction • Three metaphors for workplace learning • Data collected by the Social Semantic Server • The SSS Dashboard • Experience using the SSS Dashboard • Conclusions
  3. 3. http://Learning-Layers-eu Index 3 • Introduction • Three metaphors for workplace learning • Data collected by the Social Semantic Server • The SSS Dashboard • Experience using the SSS Dashboard • Conclusions
  4. 4. http://Learning-Layers-eu Introduction: Workplace Learning 4 • Informal way of gaining knowledge • Connected to the work processes • Personal interest • Lack of structure or guidance ...that’s way many traditional LA solutions cannot be applied for workplace LA Eraut, M. (2004) “Informal learning in the workplace“. Studies in continuing education, 26(2):247-273.
  5. 5. http://Learning-Layers-eu Introduction 5 • Special focuss on learning theories – Three metaphors for learning • Flexible way of structuring data – The Social Semantic Server • Applications that make use of the data collected – The SSS Dashboard
  6. 6. http://Learning-Layers-eu Index 6 • Introduction • Three metaphors for workplace learning • Data collected by the Social Semantic Server • The SSS Dashboard • Experience using the SSS Dashboard • Conclusions
  7. 7. http://Learning-Layers-eu Three metaphors for workplace learning 7 • Knowledge acquisition – Knowledge as something acquired by the learner • Participation – Learning happens by participating in a cultural process • Knowledge creation – Collaborative and systematic development of common objects of activity Paavola, S. and Hakkarainen, K. (2005) “The knowledge creation metaphor -an emergent epistemological approach to learning“. Science & Education 14(6) 535-557
  8. 8. http://Learning-Layers-eu Three metaphors for workplace learning 8 • The metaphor chosen has an impact on – Data collected – Data model – Data management processes – Applications • Not much focus on learning creation to develop LA applications
  9. 9. http://Learning-Layers-eu Index 9 • Introduction • Three metaphors for workplace learning • Data collected by the Social Semantic Server • The SSS Dashboard • Experience using the SSS Dashboard • Conclusions
  10. 10. http://Learning-Layers-eu Data collected by the SSS 10 • Professional teacher training course • 10 students + 1 trainer • Share bookmarks using Bookmarker • Filter, find and cite bookmarks using Attacher • 5 months training

  13. 13. http://Learning-Layers-eu Data collected by the SSS 13 • Semantically-enriched Actor-Artifact Network – 320 events gathered (53 resources + 116 tags)

  17. 17. http://Learning-Layers-eu Experience using the SSS Dashboard: Study design 17 • 1 teacher and 1 student used the SSS Dashboard once the course was over • 6 information retrieval tasks were proposed – 2 based on each learning metaphor • Example: “SSS should support the understanding of emerging topics in the student community“ – Teacher: “Identify learning topics that are surprising for you“ – Student: “Find some learning topics you were not aware about“ • Data gathering: observation and interview
  18. 18. http://Learning-Layers-eu Experience using the SSS Dashboard: Results 18 • Both could accomplish the six tasks • They considered they got relevant information – Trainer  understanding the learning process – Learner  discover learning artifacts • Both users were familiar with the data abstractions – Problems with semantic social networks • Tag cloud visualization was specially useful
  19. 19. http://Learning-Layers-eu Index 19 • Introduction • Three metaphors for workplace learning • Data collected by the Social Semantic Server • The SSS Dashboard • Experience using the SSS Dashboard • Conclusions
  20. 20. http://Learning-Layers-eu Conclusions 20 • First prototype of the SSS Dashboard • Usable and useful for trainers and learners – Specially to understand learning following the knowledge creation metaphor – It was easy to learn how to use the SSS Dashboard • A flexible and quite complex data structure is needed
