Adapting with Evidence: The Adaptive Model and the Stimulation Plan of TERENCE
TERENCE is an FP7 ICT European project that aims at developing an adaptive learning system for supporting learners and educators. The TERENCE learners are 7-8 to 11 year old children with poor reading comprehension skills. The TERENCE educators are primary-school teachers, support teachers and parents. This paper describes the stimulation plan for the TERENCE learners, based on clinical practice, and the adaptive learning model of TERENCE that stems from the stimulation plan. In other words, the design of the model follows the evidence based design.
