Workshop: Self-Regulated Learning in Educational Technologies (SRL@ET)

CFP: Self-Regulated Learning in Educational Technologies (SRL@ET)

Educational technologies have been systematically shown to help students learn better at the domain level, be it math, reading, culture, etc. However, educational technologies are yet to achieve a similar success in helping students become better learners. To achieve that, educational technologies should help students improve their metacognitive and self-regulated learning skills and behaviors.

Metacognitive tutoring faces unique challenges, compared with domain level tutoring. These challenges include implicit learning goals, difficulties in measuring and evaluating metacognitive behavior, defining productive metacognitive behaviors and self-regulation strategies within educational technologies, etc.

The goals of this workshop are to promote an in depth discussion around these issues and to support the community of researchers who studies meta-cognition and self-regulated learning in educational technologies.
