In this seminar Professor Janice Gobert gives a framework for and overview of studies on learning with visual representations in semantically-rich domains.

She will address how the methodological techniques available today, i.e. data mining, are transformative in terms of an approach for rigorously addressing how students learn from/with visualisations and how we can personalise these processes for students.

Lastly, Professor Gobert will provide an overview and demonstration of the current state of both Inq-ITS, an Inquiry Intelligent Tutoring System designed using evidence-centered design, and Inq-Blotter, its accompanying teacher alerting dashboard (www.inqits.com).
