About the Educational Data Mining in Computer Science Education Workshop
The field of CS education is still facing a range of problems from inefficient teaching approaches to the lack of minority students in CS classes and the absence of skilled CS teachers. One of the solutions to these problems lies with effective technology-enhanced learning and teaching approaches, and especially those enhanced with AI-based functionality. Providing education in Computer Science requires not only specific teaching techniques but also appropriate supporting tools. The number of AI-supported tools for primary, secondary and higher CS education is small and evidence about the integration of AI-supported tools in teaching and learning at various education levels is still rare.
In order to improve our current learning environments and address new challenges we ought to implement new AI techniques, collaborate and share student data footprints in CS. Data is the driving force for innovation at this time and new approaches have been implemented in other fields of innovation and research like Computer Vision and Image Classification. New data-driven learning algorithms and machines to process them are now widely accessible such as Deep Neural Networks and Graphical Processing Units (GPUs).
