Abstract

There is a huge, and growing, amount of personal data that has the potential to help people learn. There is also a growing and broad concern about the ways that personal data is harvested and used. This makes it timely to draw on the decades of AIED research towards creating systems and interfaces that enable learners to truly harness and control their learning data. This invited keynote will present a whirlwind tour of my learner modelling research and a selection of other work that has influenced my own towards the goal of putting people in control of their own learning data and its use. I will explain the rationale for my focus on scrutability, as a foundation for users to harness and control their learning data, especially for learning contexts.
I will share key lessons from my work for creating AIED systems that are deeply learner centred. Building on this, I will present a vision for AIED, one that takes a learner-centred perspective to designing AIED systems and recognises the inherent limitations of learning data. This is a broad view of AIED that returns its founding goals to create advanced learning technologies.

Of course, it is the nature of AIED systems that the learner may be more or less self-aware and they may be more or less honest about sharing their self-assessment with the system.

Where accretes means that it builds up over time − in my work [10, 11], this means that timestamped raw data is added to the learner model, potentially triggering inferences that add more timestamped inferred data which also accretes.
