year 2 requirements and goals
Year 2 requirements and goals
  • According to the DoW
    • Strategic coordination along the three axes (this is the structure of the deliverable)
      • Research integration and harmonization
      • Joint research activities
      • Spreading of excellence
  • Review 1 remarks
    • Stronger emphasis on the NoEidentity
    • Stronger level of coordination with WPs (particularly: subject-related)
    • Overlaps (among TCs, on certain topics)
    • JRAs: more effort on focused research than on preparation of proposals
    • SG Society creation failed in year 1
gala vision
GaLAvision
  • SGs as a reliable, usable tool for learning and teaching (supporting education – role of the teacher) and for training
    • When to use, how, on what topics, with whom, with what expected benefits and drawbacks
  • Proper design
    • Embedded mechanics
      • Stealth assessment, immediate and formative feedback, support for various types of learning goals (incl. higher order thinking), balance between exploration and guidance, collaboration and competition
    • Adaptivity/personalization, HCI
  • Availability of a framework of services for SG production, authoring and didactic adaptation
    • Suited formats
  • A supportive community of stakeholders
strategic coordination actions
Strategic coordinationactions
  • Focus on SGs for learning
    • SG studyframework (KMS), SG studies (30+, by all the partners)

strategic coordion actions
Strategic coordionactions
  • More focused WP2 research

  • Stakeholder engagement and community building
    • Supported WP4 in definition of a plan for community building
      • WP4 – industrial stakeholders
      • WP2 – R&D technological actors

taxonomies and sg studies t1 2
Taxonomies and SG studies (T1.2)
  • Defined the SG Description Template (used for the SG studies – 34 performed by TCs, SIGs and WPs)
    • General description
      • free description, keywords, technical data, target market and users, etc.
    • SG as a learning environment
      • user assessment, feedback, sociality, graduality of learning, personalization
    • SG components
      • Mechanics and links to learning approaches and goals
    • Context of use
      • Learner/teacher role, learning topics, pedagogical approaches and goals
    • Assessment (metrics)
      • effectiveness, efficiency, pleasantness of use, diffusion, feedback and assessment, exploitability, capability of motivating and engaging the user
  • Data being inserted in the SG Knowledge Management System (KMS) a relational database, developed by WP8 (part of the VRE)
  • Goals
    • Understand SGs; better use SGs in learning/training; design new SGs
  • Next steps:
    • Development of tools for advanced visualization, querying and data-mining
