This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 7th International Workshop on Collaborative Agents Research and Development, CARE 2016, held in Singapore in May 2016 and Second International Workshop on Social Computing in Digital Education, SocialEdu 2016, held in Zagreb, Croatia, in June 2016. For CARE 2016 there were 4 papers selected out of 7 submissions, and for SocialEdu 5 papers were selected from 7 submissions. The 9 extended and revised full papers presented were carefully reviewed. The papers deal with topics like techniques of continuous monitoring, human behaviour analysis, recommendation systems, adjustment of education activities, intelligent content placement, and others.
This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the First International Workshop, SOCIALEDU 2015, held in Stanford, CA, USA, in August 2015. The workshop aimed to discuss computational models of social computing applied to Digital Education. The 9 revised full papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 12 submissions. The papers address issues such as novel data mining and machine learning for social intelligence in digital education.- Social modelling and simulation to investigate social behaviours, emotional intelligence, influence processes and other social aspects that may influence learning performance in an educational environment.- Smart environments and interactive systems of social computing in digital education.- Analysis of social media and media intelligence in digital education.- Mobile social gaming in digital education.- The utilization of mobile and wearable technology in social systems in digital education, and others.
Social Computing Concepts Methodologies Tools and Applications
This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the Second International Conference on Online Communities and Social Computing, OCSC 2007, held in Beijing, China, July 2007 in the framework of the 12th International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction, HCII 2007. It covers designing and developing on-line communities, as well as knowledge, collaboration, learning and local on-line communities.
Social Media Tools and Platforms in Learning Environments
Online social media have transformed the face of human interaction in the 21st century. Wikis, blogs, online groups and forums, podcasts, virtual worlds, and social tagging are but a few of the applications enabling innovative behaviors that support acquisition, access, manipulation, retrieval, and visualization of information. It is, therefore, no surprise that educational practitioners and theorists have begun to explore how social media can be harnessed to describe and implement new paradigms for communication, learning, and education. The editors’ goal in publishing this book was to identify original research on the application of online social media and related technologies in education as well as emerging applications in Web technologies that could provide and shape future educational platforms. The selected contributions deal with questions such as how social media can truly enrich and enhance learning and teaching experiences in ways not otherwise possible; how learning can be integrated in a distributed and ubiquitous social computing environment; or what theories, paradigms, and models are applicable for the support of social computing in education. Researchers in education or educational software will find interesting and sometimes provocative chapters on paradigms and methodologies, virtual and mobile learning spaces, and assessment and social factors. Practitioners in these fields will benefit from an additional section devoted to case studies and first experience reports.
This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 5th International Conference on Online Communities and Social Computing, OCSC 2013, held as part of the 15th International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction, HCII 2013, held in Las Vegas, USA in July 2013, jointly with 12 other thematically similar conferences. The total of 1666 papers and 303 posters presented at the HCII 2013 conferences was carefully reviewed and selected from 5210 submissions. These papers address the latest research and development efforts and highlight the human aspects of design and use of computing systems. The papers accepted for presentation thoroughly cover the entire field of human-computer interaction, addressing major advances in knowledge and effective use of computers in a variety of application areas. The total of 49 contributions was carefully reviewed and selected for inclusion in the OCSC proceedings. The papers are organized in the following topical sections: user behavior and experience in online social communities; learning and gaming communities; society, business and health; designing and developing novel online social experiences.
