Lifelong learner modelling, harnessing pervasive technology for learning
Friday, April 26, 2013
Speaker(s) : Judy Kay (University of Sydney, CHAI: Computer Human Adapted Interaction Research Group)

Pervasive and ubiquitous computing are just beginning to show the potential new ways that we might learn throughout our lives. This talk presents a vision for a key element for achieving that the lifelong user model. This is a first class citizen, in that it is independent of any particular application or learning tool. Importantly, it is carefully designed and crafted so that the learner controls it. It will provide a new means to keep useful personal information, to improve metacognitive skills of goal setting, planning and self-monitoring. Interfaces to it will provide new ways to navigate complex personal information stores.
The talk will present a set of case studies of work already completed on parts of this vision and new stages towards it.
