The PSLC Summer School is an intensive 1-week course on technology-enhanced
learning experiments and building intelligent tutoring systems. The summer
school will provide a conceptual background and considerable hands-on
experience in designing, setting up, and running technology-enhanced
learning experiments, as well as analyzing the data from those experiments
in a technology supported manner.
The summer school lasts five days. Each day includes lectures, discussion
sessions, and laboratory sessions where the participants will work on
developing a small prototype experiment in an area of math, science, or
language learning. The participants will use state-of-the-art tools
including but not limited to the Cognitive Tutor Authoring Tools and other
tools for course development, TuTalk tools for authoring natural language
dialog, TagHelper tools for semi-automated coding of verbal data, and
storing and mining of student interaction data.
The summer school is organized into three parallel tracks: tutor
development (TD), in vivo experimentation (IV), and data mining (DM). The
tracks will overlap somewhat but will differ significantly with respect to
the hands-on activities, which make up about half of the summer school.
