Engaging students in learning argumentation through intelligent collaboration technologies


Within this DAAD funded project in 2009, Prof. Pinkwart and his colleagues at Carnegie Mellon University (Dr. Vincent Aleven) and at the University of Pittsburgh (Prof. Kevin Ashley, Collin Lynch) extended the intelligent tutoring system for legal argumentation "LARGO" so that it engages students more actively. The new software increased student engagement by allowing them to interactively make arguments and discuss these via peer collaboration.
