Adaptive Learning Spaces with Context-Awareness

Valéry Psyché, Ben Daniel, Jacqueline Bourdeau

This paper introduces the concept of learning space in the digital age and considers the various contexts in which learning occurs. In addition, the paper discusses issues about the modelling of a context-aware learning space ontology. The paper is based on an ongoing collaborative research, which focuses on the interface of learning space and context-aware learning. The long-term goal of this project is to introduce the notion of learning space and explore the role of the design of learning space context-aware ontologies with the ultimate aim of constructing a transformative theory of context-aware learning spaces such as personal learning networks, virtual learning spaces, social learning spaces, and cognitive learning spaces.
