Workshop description

The high volume of information in organizations has led researchers to starting to understand and appreciate knowledge and search how to manage it. Knowledge management aims to retrieve and share information within databases, documents or know-how of organizations’ employees in order to help them to cooperate and improve their ideas, increase the opportunities for innovation, and therefore enable organizations to better stay ahead of the competition. Many organizations such as business, industrial, and medical ones are implementing technologies and tools to better manage their knowledge. However, these tools, and techniques can be applied in the educational domain. The interest in 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 technologies such as semantic web and data mining 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. In this workshop, we welcome submissions reporting original research presenting how the web technologies can resolve any problem of managing and exploring information in the educational area in schools, colleges, universities, and other academic or professional learning institutions. Indeed, how these technologies can face the current evolution of educational systems especially the mobility of students/teachers involved in interactive learning, the improvement of student retention and graduation rates, analyze the importance of s!
 ocial media and games in learning, generate exam’s questions f!
 rom text files, etc.

We welcome papers describing original work applied to education. A non-exhaustive list of topics for the workshop includes the following:
• Educational knowledge management and ontologies
• Educational data mining
• Educational Linked data and semantic web
• Knowledge acquisition, extraction, and reuse in education
• Artificial Intelligence, Robotics and Human computer Interaction in Education
• Natural language processing to improve educational effectiveness
• Providing feedback to teachers and other stakeholders generated from EKM methods
• Learner or student modeling
• Learning analytics
• Improving educational software
• Practice learning experiences and techniques
• Evaluating and improving teacher’s support
• Educational knowledge evolution
• Social media and games in learning
• Global Issues in Education and Research
