The primary goals of participating in this conference were to enhance my teaching skills by:
1) exploring emerging tools and instructional strategies to develop adaptive learning; and
2) more specifically, investigating ways to develop personalized learning, micro-learning, and gamification using various adaptive technology tools and learning analytics.
This provided an opportunity for me to improve my understanding of theoretical models and practical guidelines for the developing adaptive online learning course activities that facilitate increase students’ engagement and motivation.
Smart Sparrow, Knewton, DreamBox, and ScootPad were studied at the AERA conference. Smart Sparrow is the tool that is flexible and can be easily adopted to the online learning. Smart Sparrow was used to create quiz items for instructional design courses.
