Smart STEM-Driven Educational Environment For CS Education: A Case Study
Published 2018 · Computer Science
In this chapter, we firstly discuss some aspects of known smart educational environments (SEEs). Those aspects include a framework in creating SEEs, as well as the architectural and functional aspects. Knowing that, we introduce our SEE. One should treat it as a case study connected to our vision for STEM-driven CS education. We present the architecture and functionality of this SEE. The architecture integrates all smart components discussed so far, i.e. generative (smart) learning objects (GLOs/SLOs), generative scenario and personal generative libraries, educational robot-based workplaces and additional entities, such as knowledge base, to support managing of the whole system. We describe the functionality of the SEE by the communicating processes among indicated components. We also provide an evaluation through the juxtaposition of qualitative features proposed by Hwang and those of our system.
