Introduction

With the range of educational tools available it is now realistic for learner models to take account of broader information, and there are strong arguments for placing open learner models in the centre of environments with diverse sources of data [1],[2],[3]. This Interactive Event will demonstrate the Next-TELL approach to facilitating teachers’ use of data from a variety of sources, and will allow participants to interact at all stages of this process. The Interactive Event will comprise three parts:

  • Going to the Chatterdale village: an OpenSim mystery for language learners;

  • Interaction with ProNIFA (probabilistic non-invasive formative assessment) to help teachers transform Chatterdale log data for an open learner model;

  • Interaction with the Next-TELL Open Learner Model to explore learner model visualisations from automated and manual sources.
