Facilitating self-regulated learning in adaptive learning technologies

Many students in primary education regularly learn using adaptive learning technologies (ALTs) on tablets. Driven by developments in the emerging field of learning analytics, ALTs successfully adjust instructional events (instructional texts, assignments, tools) to learners’ performance, and hence facilitate learning efficiency. Yet, ALTs lagrely eliminate the need for learners to engage in self-regulated learning activities (SRL). Research showed that learners’ self-regulated activities drive learner effort, which is essential for retention and transfer of knowledge (learning effectiveness). Hence this research investigates how ALTs can facilitate learner effort and learning effectiveness. To this end personalized visualizations are developed to support learners’ self-regulated learning and tested within in four consecutive experiments. The personalized visualizations are designed to support learners to adequately adjust their effort and effectively regulate their learning.
