Guest Editorial: Special Section on Learning Systems for Science and Technology Education
Found in: IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies
By Bert Bredeweg,Bruce M. McLaren,Gautam Biswas
Issue Date:July 2013
pp. 194-196
Computer-based technology can significantly enhance science education and training, as well as shape both what and how people learn. With this special issue of the IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies (TLT), we present contributions that address educ...
   
Scaling Up Programming by Demonstration for Intelligent Tutoring Systems Development: An Open-Access Web Site for Middle School Mathematics Learning
Found in: IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies
By Vincent Aleven, Bruce M. McLaren, Jonathan Sewall
Issue Date:April 2009
pp. 64-78
Intelligent tutoring systems (ITSs), which provide step-by-step guidance to students in complex problem-solving activities, have been shown to enhance student learning in a range of domains. However, they tend to be difficult to build. Our project investig...
 
The Scalable Adapter Design Pattern: Enabling Interoperability Between Educational Software Tools
Found in: IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies
By Andreas Harrer, Niels Pinkwart, Bruce M. McLaren, Oliver Scheuer
Issue Date:April 2008
pp. 131-143
For many practical learning scenarios, the integrated use of more than one learning tool is educationally beneficial. In these cases, interoperability between learning tools - getting the pieces to talk to one another in a coherent, well-founded manner - i...
 
Towards a Flexible Intelligent Tutoring System for Argumentation
Found in: Advanced Learning Technologies, IEEE International Conference on
By Frank Loll, Niels Pinkwart, Oliver Scheuer, Bruce M. McLaren
Issue Date:July 2009
pp. 647-648
Supporting students in the acquisition of argumentation skills is an important goal of educational technology. However, there has not been much work done towards developing generic and reusable software architectures for collaborative argumentation that co...
 
Computational Models of Ethical Reasoning: Challenges, Initial Steps, and Future Directions
Found in: IEEE Intelligent Systems
By Bruce M. McLaren
Issue Date:July 2006
pp. 29-37
Computational models of ethical reasoning are in their infancy in the field of artificial intelligence. Ethical reasoning is a particularly challenging area of human behavior for AI scientists and engineers because of its reliance on abstract principles, p...
 
Rapid Authoring of Intelligent Tutors for Real-World and Experimental Use
Found in: Advanced Learning Technologies, IEEE International Conference on
By Vincent Aleven, Jonathan Sewall, Bruce M. McLaren, Kenneth R. Koedinger
Issue Date:July 2006
pp. 847-851
Authoring tools for Intelligent Tutoring Systems are especially valuable if they not only provide a rich set of options for the efficient authoring of tutoring systems but also support controlled experiments in which the added educational value of new tuto...
 
Can temporal representation and reasoning make a difference in automated legal reasoning?: lessons from an AI-based ethical reasoner
Found in: Proceedings of the 13th International Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Law (ICAIL '11)
By Bruce M. McLaren, Kevin D. Ashley
Issue Date:June 2011
pp. 229-238
Given a renewed interest in the field of AI and Law in more complex factual representations of legal cases in terms of narratives, techniques for representing and reasoning about temporal orderings of facts will become increasingly important. The SIROCCO (...
     
An AI investigation of citation's epistemological role
Found in: Proceedings of the 8th international conference on Artificial intelligence and law (ICAIL '01)
By Bruce M. McLaren, Kevin D. Ashley
Issue Date:May 2001
pp. 32-41
This paper describes how we used an AI model for retrieving ethics cases to investigate empirically the epistemological contributions of a decision-makers' citing cases and code provisions in justifying decisions. In practical ethics, like law, it is impos...
     
Context sensitive case comparisons in practical ethics: reasoning about reasons
Found in: Proceedings of the fifth international conference on Artificial intelligence and law (ICAIL '95)
By Bruce M. McLaren, Kevin D. Ashley
Issue Date:May 1995
pp. 316-325
In order to acquire legal rules from legal texts, legal requirements and legal effects must be identified. However, some of legal requirements are expressed implicitly. Such implicit legal requirements can be found by lawyers when they understand legal tex...
