Second International Workshop on Educational Knowledge Management (EKM 2016)

Bologna, 20 November 2016

A full day workshop in connection with the
20th International Conference on Knowledge Engineering and Knowledge Management.

Call for papers

The interest in Knowledge Engineering and Knowledge Management for the educational domain has been growing in recent years. This can be seen in the series of conferences organized by the International Educational Data Mining Society and in papers discussing the role of knowledge management in higher education. As education is increasingly occurring online or in educational software, resulting in an explosion of data, new techniques are being developed and tested, aiming for instance to improve educational effectiveness, determine the key factors to the success of educational training, support basic research on learning, or manage educational training by satisfying the needs of a community, local industry, or professional development. The paper “Knowledge Management for Educational Information Systems: What Is the State of the Field?” written by Christopher A. Thorn in the journal “Education Policy Analysis Archives” put on the need of KM techniques to face current evolution of educational systems especially the mobility of students/teachers involved in interactive learning. Thus, educational systems need KM to support and control the evolution of teaching and learning, and KM techniques must be adapted to education and take into account pedagogic dimensions. We welcome submissions reporting original research related to any problem of managing and exploring information in the educational area in schools, colleges, universities, and other academic or professional learning institutions.

We welcome submissions reporting original research related to any problem of managing and exploring information in the educational area in schools, colleges, universities, and other academic or professional learning institutions.
