Prof. Chen Guangju, Deputy Director of the Council of Beijing Normal University (BNU), introduced to the guests and audience of the conference the mission of BNU, which is to build a "comprehensive, research-oriented, world-class university in teacher preparation under the Chinese context". Prof. Chen reviewed the achievements of the Academic Week on Smart Learning since its inception, pointed out the importance of holding the Forum on Smart Learning and Education Development at current stage, and expressed his heartfelt thanks to the relevant organizations, experts and scholars who supported the Forum.
Liu Ruidong, Deputy Director of Science and Technology Commission of Changping District, Beijing, introduced that as the science and technology work management department of Changping District Government, Science and Technology Commission of Changping District has always attached great importance to the cooperation and exchange with universities and research institutes in Changping, and hoped that this time, as the support organization of this forum, it would further promote the bidirectional empowerment of technology and education and help the innovation and development of technology and education.
Su Junshan, deputy director of Education Committeee of Beijing Changping District, pointed out that the CoVid-19 pandemic has caused tremendous changes in education , but because of the contemporary technology, education and teaching processes have not stopped. He hoped that the forum would be inspiring, and all sectors would explore education and teaching strategies together. Su hoped that experts would support the development of education and teaching in Changping District.
Virtual reality and education workshop
Professor Li Shuangshou from Tsinghua University gave a presentation titled "Thinking and Exploration of Cultivating Innovative Talents for a Strong Manufacturing Country'', in which he gave his thoughts and exploration of cultivating innovative talents for a strong manufacturing country from two levels: understanding change and striving for change. When the mode of production mode of the manufacturing industry is undergoing profound changes, Digital Twin technology can play an important role, and the virtual world should be used to discover potential problems, stimulate innovative thinking and constantly pursue improvement. In order of catering and seeking for changes, Prof. Li introduced the research and application of Internet+ and intelligence+ in the real world of Tsinghua University iCenter, which also includes the Virtual Reality and Human Interface Technology Lab and the National Virtual Simulation Experiment Project.
Xu Qizhi from University of Science and Technology of China, shared the topic of “principles of visual perception in educational VR application”. Based on the perspective of cognitive psychology, Xu introduced the internal and external cognitive mechanisms and demonstrated the application of scientific visualization in teaching abstract concepts at K-12 level by using a case study.
Learning Analytics Technology and Education Workshop
Associate Professor Li Shuang from Beijing Normal University presented a report named "Agile Educational Modeling with Human-Computer Augmented Intelligence Support". By analyzing the development of education in the context of personalization , the analysis and understanding of learning patterns, and the modeling process of various types of educational application models, Prof. Li believes that educational modeling should start from the basic laws of education to form feature extraction that satisfies the educational context, it should emphasize more on feature discovery based on causal models rather than terminating at the construction of relevant models, and it should focus on the formation of a collaborative human-computer modeling approach rather than pursuing algorithmic precision.
The topic shared by Associate Professor Zhou Hyun Yu from Hunan Normal University is "Construction and Application of Knowledge Graph for Middle School Mathematics Based on the Fusion of Multi-source Heterogeneous Data", Professor Zhou explained the construction process of knowledge graph in detail by analyzing the construction and application of knowledge graph in mathematics teaching based on the special demand for online education during the CoVid-19 pandemic.
Artificial Intelligence and Education Workshop
Professor Wang Xiaoru from Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications (BUPT) presented a report titled "Language & Algorithm & Thinking——Integrative Teaching". By analyzing the data of university students' informatics competitions, Ms. Wang proposed a new idea of integrative teaching of language, algorithm and thinking-the design of course curriculum in the way of "competition-led learning"; the emphasis on basic knowledge system and comprehensive application ability; the openness, multidisciplinary extension and intersectionality of course content; the cultivation of anti-pressure ability and teamwork ability; the assessment in the way of simulated competition, which eliminates the way of learning programming on paper rather than on computer caused by paper exams and strengthens students' awareness of engineering practice.
Xiong Xueting, an IT teacher and researcher from Xicheng District Education and Training Institute in Beijing, shared the topic of "Ideas and Practice of Computational Thinking". Starting from the concept of computational thinking, Ms. Xiong believes that creating a good learning environment with hands-on experiments and real-world problem solving is a valid way to develop students' computational thinking skills.
At the end of the conference, Tingwen Chang, assistant to the dean of Smart Learning Institute of Beijing Normal University, once again thanked the participants and the online audience. Dr. Chang summarized the achievements of the conference, and said that more and better conferences and events in the research areas of virtual reality, learning analytics and technology, and artificial intelligence will be held in the future to promote the bidirectional empowerment of education and technology.
