2021, May | Digital education for a strong recovery

2021, May | FLoRA featured in the EDUCAUSE 2021 Horizon Report

Our ORA research project, FLoRA – Facilitating Self-Regulated Learning with Personalized Scaffolds on Student’s own Regulation Activities (funded by the DFG, ESRC, NWO) was selected to be featured in the EDUCAUSE 2021 Horizon Report | Teaching and Learning Edition.

The FLoRA project is a collaboration between: University of Edinburgh, Technical University of Munich, Behavioural Science Institute, Radboud University and the Monash University.

"This research collaboration will research how to advance support given to students by: i) improving unobtrusive data collection and machine learning techniques to gain better measurement and understanding of SRL-processes and ii) using these new insights to facilitate student’s SRL by providing personalized scaffolds".

2021, April | Join us at the MAIEd 2021

Join us at the first international workshop on Multimodal Artificial Intelligence in Education (MAIEd'21)!


"This workshop aims at gathering new insights around the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) systems and autonomous agents for education and learning leveraging multimodal data sources. The workshop is entitled Multimodal Artificial Intelligence in Education (MAIEd). It builds upon the CrossMMLA workshop series at the Learning Analytics & Knowledge conference. The workshop calls for new empirical studies, even if in their early stages of development. It also welcomes novel experimental designs, theoretical contributions, and practical demonstrations which can prove the use of multimodal and multi-sensor devices “beyond mouse and keyboard” in learning contexts with the purpose of automatic feedback generation, adaptation, and personalisation in learning. Through a call for proposals, we seek to engage the scientific community in opening up the scope of AI in Education towards novel and diverse data sources."

2021, April | Verkenning naar het Nederlandse onderwijslab artificiële intelligentie

Inge Molenaar heeft bijgedragen als lid van de expertgroep die de verkenning van feedback heeft voorzien:

"Deze verkenning naar een Onderwijslab Artificiële Intelligentie maakt onderdeel uit van het voorstel 'Transitie naar innovatief en toekomstgericht onderwijs'. Doel van het onderzoek is om de haalbaarheid van een onderwijslab te verkennen en op welke wijze een dergelijk lab is vorm te geven."

ERC Starting Grant for Inge Molenaar

AI to teach students self-regulated learning


Hybrid systems combining artificial and human intelligence hold great promise for training human skills. Inge Molenaar will develop Hybrid Human-AI Regulation (HHAIR)  that will train Self-Regulated Learning (SRL) skills within Adaptive Learning Technologies (ALTs).

HHAIR targets young learners (10-14 years) for whom these skills are critical in today’s society. Many of these learners use ALTs to learn mathematics and languages every day in school. ALTs optimize learning based on learners’ performance data but even the most sophisticated ALTs fail to support SRL. In fact, most ALTs take over (offload) control and monitoring from learners.  HHAIR on the other hand aims to gradually transfer regulation of learning from AI-regulation to self-regulation.

Learners will increasingly regulate their own learning while going through the different degrees of hybrid regulation. Dashboards initially show learners how the AI monitors and controls their learning, and later become a mirror that help learners understand how to monitor and control themselves. In this way HHAIR supports learning and transfer (deep learning) and development of SRL skills for lifelong learning (future learning). This project is ground-breaking in developing the first hybrid systems to train human SRL skills with AI.

2019, March 21st | Inge's presentation at the launch of the Dutch Digital Agenda for primary and secondary education

Digital agenda 2019Inge gave a talk at the Nederland Digitaal conference titled: De mogelijke scenarios voor AI in het onderwijs:  Welke keuzes maakt Nederland? (This translates to: 'The possible scenario's for AI in education: What decisions do The Netherlands make?'). AI is often seen as the smart computer that replaces the teacher and personally supports the student. However in Dutch education, we  value students' and teacher's ownership of their learning. Inge's presentation was focused around the question "What does the Dutch digital future in education look like?". For the slides of Inge's presentation, click here (pdf, 2,5 MB).

Also the digital agenda for education was presented, which is the guideline for actions from OC&W for the next few years. For the digital agenda (in Dutch), click here.
