Earlier this month we received news that our conference paper was accepted to the International Conference on Computer Supported Education (CSEDU) to be held in Rome on April 21-23, 2016. The paper reports the latest results of our investigation on play and learning styles. The paper details are as follows:
- Authors: Renny Lindberg & Teemu H. Laine
- Title: Detecting Play and Learning Styles for Adaptive Educational Games
- Conference: CSEDU 2016 — International Conference on Computer Supported Education
In the paper, we compare various play and learning style models, choose one of each (Bartle; Honey & Mumford), build a questionnaire instrument based on the models, and use the questionnaire to measure the distribution of play and learning styles in a population of South Korean elementary school children. These results will be applied in the development of an adaptive programming education game, Minerva, which is part of our ongoing project Learning-Aware Adaptation Framework for Programming Education.
