  • IRT-Based Adaptive Hints to Scaffold Learning in Programming
    • Authors: Maomi Ueno;Yoshimitsu Miyazawa;
      Pages: 415 - 428
      Abstract: Over the past few decades, many studies conducted in the field of learning science have described that scaffolding plays an important role in human learning. To scaffold a learner efficiently, a teacher should predict how much support a learner must have to complete tasks and then decide the optimal degree of assistance to support the learner's development. Nevertheless, it is difficult to ascertain the optimal degree of assistance for learner development. For this study, it is assumed that optimal scaffolding is based on a probabilistic decision rule: Given a teacher's assistance to facilitate the learner development, an optimal probability exists for a learner to solve a task. To ascertain that optimal probability, we developed a scaffolding system that provides adaptive hints to adjust the predictive probability of the learner's successful performance to the previously determined certain value, using a probabilistic model, i.e., item response theory (IRT). Furthermore, using the scaffolding system, we compared learning performances by changing the predictive probability. Results show that scaffolding to achieve 0.5 learner success probability provides the best performance. Additionally, results demonstrate that a scaffolding system providing 0.5 probability decreases the number of hints (amount of support) automatically as a fading function according to the learner's growth capability.

  • Rewrite Rules for Debugging Student Programs in Programming Tutors
    • Authors: Timotej Lazar;Aleksander Sadikov;Ivan Bratko;
      Pages: 429 - 440
      Abstract: Data-driven intelligent tutoring systems learn to provide feedback based on past student behavior, reducing the effort required for their development. A major obstacle to applying data-driven methods in the programming domain is the lack of meaningful observable actions for describing the students problem-solving process. We propose rewrite rules as a language-independent formalization of programming actions in terms of code edits. We describe a method for automatically extracting rewrite rules from students program-writing traces, and a method for debugging new programs using these rules. We used these methods to automatically provide hints in a web application for learning programming. In-class evaluation showed that students receiving automatic feedback solved problems faster and submitted fewer incorrect programs. We believe that rewrite rules provide a good basis for further research into how humans write and debug programs.

  • A Framework for Analyzing and Evaluating Architectures and Control
           Strategies in Distributed Remote Laboratories
    • Authors: Ananda Maiti;Danilo G. Zutin;Heinz-Dietrich Wuttke;Karsten Henke;Andrew D. Maxwell;Alexander A. Kist;
      Pages: 441 - 455
      Abstract: Remote Access Laboratories (RALs) have been used to develop experimental knowledge about practical engineering topics for a while. Distributed remote laboratories aim to share experiment among institutions and individuals through a distributed architecture. Experiments from diverse areas are combined as part of a larger system. Multiple control strategies are used to integrate experiments in Remote Laboratory Management Systems (RLMSs). This work defines two main categories to analyze the various implementations, white box and black box approaches. Experiments can be on a spectrum between these two extremes, sharing properties of both. When integrating an existing experiment into a new distributed RAL system, it is useful to evaluate the experiment with respect to its host or new RLMS for determining the best strategies to assimilate it. This paper provides a framework for such evaluation based on a number of properties of experiments. The proposed framework is called SHASS (Software, Hardware, Assessment, Support, and Share-ability) based on several factors such as the hardware used, the software to create the program, methods of sharing, user's support, and assessment of user's performance. It can be used to evaluate quality and identify options for improvements within an experiment's existing RLMS as well. Using this framework, a black box and white box approach are compared using two examples - federated and Peer-to-Peer RAL. The evaluation focuses on technical capabilities and development possibilities. A set of four experiments are also analysed to illustrate the utility of the framework in creating and improving experiments with respect to their RLMS.

  • Understanding Learning Resources Metadata for Primary and Secondary
    • Authors: M. Peralta;R. Alarcon;K. Pichara;T. Mery;F. Cano;J. Bozo;
      Pages: 456 - 467
      Abstract: Educational resources can be easily found on the Web. Most search engines base their algorithms on a resource's text or popularity, requiring teachers to navigate the results until they find an appropriate resource. This makes searching for resources a tedious and cumbersome task. Specialized repositories contain resources that are annotated with metadata that aim to facilitate the discovery of quality resources. Nevertheless, the abundance and variety of content make searching a complex task. Recommender systems can assist teachers in finding the proper content by determining clusters of similar users and inferring users interest in a resource, assembling clusters of similar resources, or a mix of both. Probabilistic model-based (PMB) techniques, on the other hand, make it possible to classify resources into more than one cluster with various degrees of probability. In this paper, we used recommender systems and PMB techniques to analyze a dataset produced by primary and secondary level teachers over the course of four years and under natural conditions. We found that a hybrid recommendation, the Collaborative Topic Regression (CTR) technique, performs better than other approaches despite the high sparseness of the dataset. In addition, learning resources annotated with curriculum metadata had a positive impact on recommender's accuracy whereas free-text or other metadata negatively impacted the results.

  • The Effect of Different Features for Educational Computer-Based
           Competition Environments
    • Authors: Pedro J. Muñoz-Merino;Carlos Alario-Hoyos;Mario Muñoz-Organero;Carlos Delgado Kloos;Manuel Fernandez Molina;
      Pages: 468 - 477
      Abstract: Educational computer-based competition environments need to be designed with a set of features that enhance the learning process. Although recently some frameworks for the design of educational computer-based systems (e.g., educational games) have been proposed, they do not focus on the details of the competition. Therefore, the design of educational computer-based competition environments is still an open issue. We propose the 4NESS framework for the design of such competition environments. This framework classifies the competition features into four dimensions: easiness, fairness, awareness, and adaptiveness. We designed the ISCARE educational computer-based competition environment implementing these four dimensions to evaluate and validate some included features for competition, and conducted experiments during three consecutive years. Students considered the computer-based competition environment with the proposed features, including a modification of the Swiss system, to be very easy to use, fair for pairing students, moderately fair for calculating scores, with good awareness of their state during the competition and that of their peers, and with contents of appropriate level, especially for the group working with adaptive contents. Adaptation of contents made students increase their learning gains in 0.5 sigmas during the competition. Pairings were seen as with students of similar levels. And final scores were moderately fair: while the order tends to be similar as compared to the results in the post-test, students grades with high performance tend to be lower in the competition environment.

  • Blending Digital and Face-to-Face Interaction Using a Co-Located Social
           Media App in Class
    • Authors: Sten Govaerts;Adrian Holzer;Bruno Kocher;Andrii Vozniuk;Benot Garbinato;Denis Gillet;
      Pages: 478 - 492
      Abstract: Improving face-to-face (f2f) interaction in large classrooms is a challenging task as student participation can be hard to initiate. Thanks to the wide adoption of personal mobile devices, it is possible to blend digital and face-to-face interaction and integrate co-located social media applications in the classroom. To better understand how such applications can interweave digital and f2f interaction, we performed a detailed analysis of real-world use cases of a particular co-located social media app: SpeakUp. In a nutshell, SpeakUp allows the creation of temporary location-bound chat rooms that are accessible by nearby users who can post and rate messages anonymously. We find that the use of co-located social media is associated with an increase in content-related interaction in the class. Furthermore, it is associated with an increase in the perceived learning outcomes of students compared to a control group. We further provide design guidelines to blend digital and f2f interaction using co-located social media in the classroom based on 11 case studies covering over 2,000 students.

  • DEDOS: An Authoring Toolkit to Create Educational Multimedia Activities
           for Multiple Devices
    • Authors: David Roldán-Álvarez;Estefanía Martín;Pablo A. Haya;Manuel García-Herranz;María Rodríguez-González;
      Pages: 493 - 505
      Abstract: Information and Communication Technologies offer new possibilities for teachers to enhance their teaching methods. The increasing use of personal computers, tablets, interactive whiteboards, or even multitouch tabletops in the classrooms seems to attract the interest of the students. However, there are not many tools that allow teachers to create multimedia activities for all these technologies in an effortless way. Most of current authoring tools either focus on creating content for only one device or they do not fully exploit the benefits of rich content for designing engaging educational activities. In this paper, we present an authoring toolkit composed by two applications: DEDOS-Editor, which allow teachers to design their own learning activities, and DEDOS-Web, which allows the students to perform those activities adapting them to multiple devices. To test both tools, we have performed two evaluations. One with teachers to test the authoring tools and a second one with primary school students to test if the activities designed with this tool enhance their learning process. Results show that DEDOS-Editor is an easy to learn authoring tool which helps teachers to complement their learning methods while DEDOS-Web is flexible enough to create several learning scenarios from just one set of activities, factors which lead to achieving positive learning outcomes.

  • Game of Blazons: Helping Teachers Conduct Learning Situations That
           Integrate Web Tools and Multiple Types of Augmented Reality
    • Authors: Juan A. Muñoz-Cristóbal;Vanesa Gallego-Lema;Higinio F. Arribas-Cubero;Juan I. Asensio-Pérez;Alejandra Martínez-Monés;
      Pages: 506 - 519
      Abstract: Several studies have explored how to help teachers carry out learning situations involving Augmented Reality (AR), a technology that has shown different affordances for learning. However, these works tend to rely on specific types of AR, focus on particular types of spaces, and are generally disconnected from other technologies widely used in education, such as VLEs or Web 2.0 tools. These constraints limit the possible range of activities that can be conducted and their integration into the existing classroom practice. GLUEPS-AR is a system that can help overcome these limitations, aiding teachers in the creation and enactment of learning situations that may combine multiple types of AR with other common web tools. This paper presents an evaluation study conducted on Game of Blazons, a learning situation carried out by two university teachers using GLUEPS-AR, and framed within two days of outdoor activities in a village in Spain. The evaluation showed that GLUEPS-AR provided an affordable support to the participant teachers to integrate several activities that made use of multiple types of AR, common web tools, and augmented paper, into a unique learning situation.

  • MEBook: Multimedia Social Greetings Intervention for Children with Autism
           Spectrum Disorders
    • Authors: Nkiruka Uzuegbunam;Wing Hang Wong;Sen-Ching Samson Cheung;Lisa Ruble;
      Pages: 520 - 535
      Abstract: Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a developmental disorder that impairs the development of social and communication skills. There is evidence that children with ASD prefer images of self over others[1] . These studies may explain the effectiveness of video self-modeling (VSM), an evidence-based ASD intervention in which one learns by watching oneself on video performing a target behavior. VSM content is difficult to create as target behaviors are sporadic. In this paper, we propose the MEBook system which uses a Kinect sensor to inject self-images into a gesture-based social narrative to teach children with ASD proper greeting behaviors. MEBook consists of two components. The first component is a social narrative. A social narrative is an animated story about the main character meeting and greeting different cartoon characters in a particular setting. Self-modeling is achieved by first replacing the main characters face with an image of the learner, and then animating the learner's body and voice to match the narration. The second component is a positive reinforcement practice session in which the subject is prompted to greet different cartoon characters. Through depth-based body posture tracking, proper greeting behaviors are recognized and immediately reinforced with praise and visual confetti. Novel computational multimedia tools are proposed to turn video recordings of successful attempts into VSM content, thereby alleviating the tedious production process. A multiple-baseline single subject pilot study has been conducted and the preliminary results show that MEBook is potentially effective in teaching greeting behaviors to children with ASD.

  • Educational Functions and Design of Badge Systems: A Conceptual Literature
    • Authors: Lisa Facey-Shaw;Marcus Specht;Peter van Rosmalen;Dirk Brner;Jeanette Bartley-Bryan;
      Pages: 536 - 544
      Abstract: In today's technological era, emerging educational technologies, such as digital badges, have shown the potential for fostering student learning. To examine the major considerations undergirding the design of digital badges used in an educational context, a conceptual literature review of multidisciplinary electronic databases oriented towards computing and education was undertaken. The three core design dimensions found in our analysis were the specific function of badges, the structure of badge systems, and the different types of design and interaction features used with badges. We highlight the main effects of studies addressing these dimensions and provide recommendations and suggestions for further research to educational stakeholders who seek to better understand how to implement badges within their own institutions.

  • The Development and Evaluation of DEFT, a Web-Based Tool for Engineering
           Design Education
    • Authors: Martina M. Moyne;Maxwell Herman;Krzysztof Z. Gajos;Conor J. Walsh;Dónal P. Holland;
      Pages: 545 - 550
      Abstract: This article describes the development of the Design Evaluation and Feedback Tool (DEFT), a custom-built web-based system that collects and reports data to support teaching, learning, and research in project-based engineering design education. The DEFT system collects data through short weekly questionnaires for students and instructors in engineering design classes, and uses these data to produce weekly reports for both types of user. The system is intended to engage students in reflective reporting on their experiential learning, to support educators in coaching student designers, and to serve as a data collection tool for education researchers. DEFT was developed through an iterative design and evaluation process, involving 185 students and 18 instructors at two universities. The system was evaluated using a combination of participation observation, user interviews, and anonymous questionnaires, and the results guided subsequent improvements to the system. This article describes the development and evaluation process, provides an overview of the resulting system, and ends by discussing the potential for DEFT to be used in evaluating and improving project-based design classes.
