Olsen, Jennifer K.; Rummel, Nikol; Aleven, Vincent – International Journal of Artificial Intelligence in Education, 2021
Educational technologies are often developed such that students work on specific social levels (e.g., individual, small group, whole class) at specific times. However, in the reality of the classroom, learning activities are not so cleanly divided, with transitions occurring between social levels for students at different times. To support these…

Nacheva-Skopalik, Lilyana; Green, Steve – International Journal of Web-Based Learning and Teaching Technologies, 2016
Access to education is one of the main human rights. Everyone should have access to education and be capable of benefiting from it. However there are a number who are excluded, not because of a lack of ability but simply because they have a disability or specific need which current education systems do not address. A learning system in which…
