Language Technologies for Lifelong Learning (2010)

  1. 1. Language Technologies Mash-Ups<br />Wolfgang Greller (OUNL)<br />Bernhard Hoisl (WUW)<br />KamakshiRajagopal (OUNL)<br />JTEL Winterschool<br />Innsbruck<br />4 February 2010<br />The LTfLL project is partially supported/co-funded by the European Union under the Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) theme of the 7th Framework Programme for R&D<br />
  2. 2. Set of Tools<br />Addressing two areas of TEL:<br /><ul><li> help people learn
  3. 3. help tutors/teachers support learners</li></li></ul><li>Three Themes<br /><ul><li>Positioning the learner
  4. 4. Feedback Support
  5. 5. Knowledge retrieval and sharing</li></ul>Tutor/Learner support not fully automated system<br />
  6. 6. Innovative New Designs<br />Create next-generation support and advice services for individual and collaborative learning using language technologies (LSA, NLP, etc)<br />
  7. 7. Personalised Services<br />Individual feedback and support<br />
  8. 8. Different Languages<br />Language corpora<br />
  9. 9. Personal Learning Environment<br />Mash-up PLE<br />Widgets to mix and match<br />
  10. 10. Fitness for Purpose<br />Analysing stakeholder needs<br />Validation loops and pilots<br />
  11. 11. Scenario-Based Design<br />Real problems<br />Practical solutions<br />
  12. 12. Development Cycle<br />2008<br />2011<br />ROUND 1<br />ROUND 2<br />ROUND 3<br />Scenarios<br />v 1.0<br />Validation<br />Scenarios<br />v 2.0<br />Validation<br />Development<br />V 1.0<br />Scenarios<br />v 3.0<br />Validation<br />Development<br />V 2.0<br />Roadmap<br />Milestone<br />Milestone<br />Milestone<br />
  13. 13. Services<br />Positioning the learner<br />Accreditation of Prior Learning, Position in Curriculum<br />Feedback on the conceptual development of the learner<br />Feedback Support<br />Feedback and assessing the contribution of learners in online discussions<br />Supporting individuals in their understanding through reading texts and making summaries<br />Knowledge retrieval and sharing<br />Supporting teachers in finding online resources to design courses<br />Supporting knowledge discovery through semantic searches and ontologies<br />Knowledge discovery through finding relevant expertise (either of teachers or peers) in learning networks<br />
  14. 14. Positioning the Learner<br /> Accreditation of Prior Learning in formal learning<br />Matching learner’s evidences with course content<br />
  15. 15. Positioning the Learner<br />Problem-based learning – workplace learning<br />Give formative feedback on conceptual development of learner <br />Benefit for individual learner (coverage of domain concepts and comparison with peer group)<br /> Benefit for tutor (recognition of individual coverage, assist in personal feedback. Identify topics missed by group as a whole)<br />
  16. 16. Feedback Support<br />Use of social media in formal learning<br />Provide more feedback (through analyses and information) on the interactions on chat and forums between learners, to the tutor and learner. <br />
  17. 17. Feedback Support<br />Learners’ reading and writing<br />Live feedback on summary-writing by the learner<br />
  18. 18. Knowledge Retrieval and Sharing<br />Creating Learning Resources<br />Semantic, text and ontology-based searches can identify suitable learning objects (enhancing received quality)<br />
  19. 19. Knowledge Retrieval and Sharing<br />Creating Learning Resources with input of network<br />Enhance formal ontologies with informal folksonomies and tags to extend search, incl. visualisation of related concepts.<br />Finding relevant expertise (teacher or peers) within networks that the person knows, crawling the user’s networks (friends, FOAFs).<br />
  20. 20. Hands-on Task<br />Identify challenges to the potential adoption of the tools for teachers, lifelong learners, institutions<br />Identify added-value integration possibilities between two or more tools<br />
