An Adaptive user interface for a pen-based educational application and the related technical difficulties are discussed The Supervised Competitive Learning (SCL) model is proposed as a mechanism for a pen-based adaptive user interface. It offers a solution for one of the fundamental problems of using neural for adaptive user interface; the Grossberg's stability-plasticity dilemma.
