We are busy running pilots in our schools in the UK along this week! The school where we are currently piloting the platform in is located in South East of London. We have 10 young people working on the system twice a week. The pilots are going well and both teachers and students love working with the robots. Students are getting more engaged over the time and happily take part in our activities. The early results show that students are motivated by the use of technologies to access their learning content!
MaTHiSiS Real Life Pilots have started in October 2018! Our partner Fundazione Mondo Digitale is the leader of these activities. Our developers have been working hard all summer in order to produce new versions of the software and get everything ready for this launch. Now they are carrying out all the final tests in order to guarantee the best user experience.
Teachers have started to use the software and have started to use the designed learning graphs and are testing them by themselves with their pupils or trainees.
The 19th International Conference on Artificial Intelligence in Education will be held next June in London, co-located with the Festival of Learning. And MaTHiSiS will be part of this significant venue in the education and technology field! Nelly Leligou will present our paper "Adaptive learning based on affect sensing".
Don't miss the opportunity to learn more about MaTHiSiS ! We will provide more information in the following weeks. Stay tuned!
EDULEARN18, the 10th annual International Conference on Education and New Learning Technologies is one of the largest international education conferences for lecturers, researchers, technologists and professionals from the educational sector.
After 10 years, it has become a reference event where more than 800 experts from 80 countries will get together to present their projects and share their knowledge on teaching and learning methodologies and educational innovations.
The Special Session will be part of the Computational Intelligence and Games (IEE CIG 2018) conference to be held in Maastricht, Netherlands, on August 14-17, 2018. Paper submissions are invited on the Special Session topic.
Special Session papers will be reviewed by the TPC of the session; they will be part of the Conference Proceedings, and they will be uploaded to IEEE Xplore.
The Assisted Pilots procedure began in September 2017 with enhancement of the platform according the evaluation results of Driver Pilots outcome, leading to the refinement of components and system level technology consolidation. The enhanced version of the MaTHiSiS platform was tested during this phase with the different PAs first by the partners at their own premises.
The internal testing phase ended at mid-October and the piloting partners were able to test the system at the school venues in the second half of October in order to start running effective pilots in November 2017.
