Final Call for papers: Third Workshop on Intelligent Textbooks @ The 22nd
International Conference on Artificial Intelligence in Education (AIED 2021)
We are happy to announce that we will be organizing a full-day online
workshop at AIED 2021.
AIED 2021 will be held virtually between 14th and 18th of June 2021.
See here: https://aied2021.science.uu.nl/
Details on the workshop will be updated soon.
————————— WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION ————————-
Textbooks have evolved over the last several decades in many aspects. Most
can be accessed online, many of them freely. They often come with libraries
supplementary educational resources or online educational services built on
top of them.
As a result of these enrichments, new research challenges and opportunities
call for the application of AIED methods to enhance digital textbooks and
interaction with them. Therefore, we ask: How to facilitate the access to
improve the reading process? What can be extracted from textbook content
from the logs of students interacting with it? This workshop seeks research
contributions addressing these and other research questions related to the
intelligent textbooks. It aims at bringing together researchers working on
aspects of learning technologies to establish intelligent textbooks as a
interdisciplinary research field.
More information will be available here:
————————— TOPICS OF INTEREST —————————
The workshop themes include but are not limited to:
* Modeling and representation of textbooks: examining the prerequisite and
semantic structure of
textbooks to enhance their readability;
* Analysis and mining of textbook usage logs: analyzing the patterns of
learners’ use of textbooks
to obtain insights on learning and the pedagogical value of textbook
* Generation, manipulation, and presentation: exploring and testing
different formats and forms of
textbook content to find the most effective means of presenting different
* Assessment and personalization: developing methods that can generate
assessments and enhance
textbooks with adaptive support to meet the needs of every learner using
* Knowledge visualization: augmenting textbooks with concept maps, open
learner models and other
* Smart interactive content: extending online textbooks with various kinds
of smart interactive
Content to improve learning, engagement, learned modeling, and
* Intelligent information retrieval and question-answering for digital
* Collaborative technologies: building and deploying social components of
digital textbooks that
enable learners to interact with not only content but other learners;
* Content curation and enrichment: sorting through external resources on
the web and finding the
relevant resources to augment the textbook and provide additional
information for learners.
