Track 2: Adaptive and Personalised Technology-Enhanced Learning

Track Description and Topics of Interest

Advanced learning technologies keep transforming what people learn, how
they learn it and the ways they access learning opportunities in formal
and informal contexts. As the educational landscape evolves, learning gets
more structured around flexible curricula that have to accommodate needs
of diverse student audiences, and educational organizations which offer
services for accessing courses, content, and resources through a variety
of platforms, devices, and learning contexts. In this framework, adapting
the educational experience to learners' preferences and needs becomes
critical, in order to deliver an effective education through
technology-enhanced learning processes. The challenge concerns providing
an alternative to the "one-size-fits-all" approach, taking into
consideration individual differences among learners and the application of
emerging technologies to enhance the provision of personalized learning.
The aim is to maximize learner satisfaction, learning retention and
efficiency of the learning process. Adaptation can take place both at
individual level and group/community level whereby intelligent and
adaptive technologies are integrated to empower socially-grounded online

APTeL@ICALT2017 explores different dimensions of adaptation and
personalization, including learner modeling, adaptation mechanisms and
techniques, design and implementation challenges, and experimental
validations. A main issue addressed in this forum is the impact of
adaptive and personalised learning environments in real educational
(formal or informal) contexts, and how these environments can be
integrated in the educational process in order to enhance and promote
learning cycles. "What can we adapt to?", "What can be adapted?", "How can
we collect and process relevant data?", "What is the impact of
adaptation?", "How technology-enhanced adaptive environments may promote
personalized learning in real contexts?", "How are learners profiled and
how do they perceive personalization?", "How can you support users develop
personalized content and courses?", "How can interaction data collection,
analysis and/or visualization be adapted to user needs?" are some
important questions that need to be addressed.

Topics of interest cover various adaptivity and personalization issues in
technology enhanced learning, in particular:
* Personal learning environments (PLE)
* Intelligent learner and group modeling
* Adaptive learning methods and techniques
* Adaptive collaborative learning
* Personalized mobile learning applications
* Adaptive educational games
* Adaptivity and personalization in MOOCs
* Cognitive, motivational and affective aspects for personalization
* Measurement and evaluation in adaptive learning environments
* Practice and experience sharing
* Learning and teaching with adaptive and personalised learning environments
* Personalized learning design
* Personalized learning/teaching analytics
* Context-aware models for personalized learning
* Adaptive learning in pervasive computing environments
