DESCRIPTIONDescribes a first approach to implement e-portfolios in ActiveMath
- 1. ePortfolio in Martin Homik, Erica Melis -- ActiveMath Group - www.activemath.org ePortfolio 2005, Cambridge German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI GmbH) Saarland University
- Workbook (ActiveMaths ePortfolio)
- Capturing Semantics in Workbook
- Current ePortfolios: standalone applications
- Integration into large systems, in general?
- Integration into learning environments?
- Definition: collection of evidences
- How to capture reflection on processes?
- How to turn implicit knowledge into explicit one?
- Function: store and provide access
- How to support users?
- Semantic KR
- Semantic KR
6. ePortfolio in ActiveMath (Workbook) 7. Assembly Tool
- Students are book smart
- Assemble own books
- Supports meta-cognitive skills
- Store locally/upload
8. Learning log
- Self-managed documentation of learning objectives
- Base on experience with paper logs
- Reflection on:
- Formulation and justification
- Annotated by beliefs
- Problem solving
10. Views and Queries
- List entries: all/specific type/specific period
- related to a specified learning object
- related to LOs a learner does not understand
- related to LOs a learner did not understand in first place, but has learned meanwhile.
11. Capturing Semantics
- By structure
- We know what we ask
- By multiple choice questions
- We can interpret answers
- By template answers
- We can interpret answers without full understanding
- By drag&drop
- We can relate entries to learning objects
12. Capturing Semantics: Structure
- Questions related to:
- General data
- What was the lesson about? Write a summary.
- What did you (not) understand?
- Formulate questions to issues you did not understand.
- What kind of tools or resources did you use for solving?
- Who helped you?
- What difficulties arose during problem solving?
- What learning objects were most helpful to you?
- How would you rate your performance?
- Did you achieve your goals? If not, why?
- Who can help you?
13. Capturing Semantics: Drag&drop http://demo.activemath.org:8080/... mbase://LeAM_calculus/diffquot/def_diff_quot 14. Architecture Math Knowledge Base Learner Model Server Clients Web Server Manager retrieve JNLP (http) Learning log Database 15. Outlook
- Currently in seminar with 15 university students
- Planned for LeActiveMath EU-Project
- Investigate learning logs (types, semantics, )
- Enhance collaboration
- Increase interaction with ActiveMaths services
- Compare learning logs with learner model
- Integration of more reflection-supporting tools
- (Examine) Export in IMS ePortfolio
- ePortfolios in learning environments
- Not restricted to collection of evidences
- Store reflection processes
- Explicit reflection supports meta-cognition
- Capturing semantics enables provision of user-adapted support
- Still a lot of interesting work to do.
