People learn everywhere…

Somehow, I managed to miss that the ECTEL08 keynotes are now available on-line. These are three really nice talks by some of the most interesting people in our field: hope you’ll like them as much as I did 10 months ago!

I especially like Kristina Hooks presentation on “Mind, mouse and body: designing engaging technologies” as it focused on affective or emotional aspects, often neglected in our work…

Kristina mentions at the start that she doesn’t “do the learning thing anymore … because it is extremely difficult … people are completely uncontrollable … they learn everywhere and from everything … you can never show that your system is helping them to learn more or better or whatever”! I think that she does have a point there, but I am not so sure that emotions are more easy to research? Anyway, this is a really good talk: do enjoy!

BTW, you will want to watch Pierre’s introduction – especially if you know how much fun I have with metadatašŸ˜‰ !
