Speech Title: Moving beyond Standardised Testing
Abstract: In this presentation I am going to argue that:
• Education needs to be preparing people to live fulfilling lives and to enhance societal well-being.
• We live in a world in which automation threatens to render large swathes of the population unemployable.
• This changes what people need to learn in order to lead fulfilling lives and to enhance societal well-being.
I'm then going to suggest that assessment is the key driver of practice in education, and that because of its focus on standardised outcomes summative assessment kills creativity and prevents people from developing their talents and passions. The things that standardized tests assess are also the things that AI is or will become good at.
Standardisation facilitates automation.
If we want to make education fit for purpose in the automation age then we need to move away from standardised testing. We also need to be assessing the things that everyone claims are important – the so called 21st Century skills.
I will provide a set of criteria for evaluation summative assessment, and then use those criteria to briefly explore a number of ideas about how we might assess learners more appropriately. These include micro-credentials, nano-credentials, AI, and learner profiles.

Speech Title: How Can Student Created EXtended Reality (XR) Games Be Used to Support Cross-curricular Learning?
Abstract: While eXtended Reality (XR) has been shown to provide rich promise, its adoption within the educational context is still limited and we have yet to fully understand the affordances that XR brings to learning. Recent advances in XR technology, especially in mobile XR tools and game-based XR, have made XR more accessible, this has prompted new and innovative approaches to integrating XR in education. However, most XR experiences still involve pre-built experiences, where the learner is the consumer not the developer of these experiences. Drawing on a wider research project, in this presentation, I explore how the development of XR games can build critical digital skills and also can be integrated to teach a range of subjects. Drawing on different examples, of how XR has been integrated into two High Schools in New Zealand, I will explore six design principles that could be adopted to promote wider adoption of XR in schools.

Speech Title: Learning Computational Thinking Through Bodily Movements from an Embodied Cognition Perspective
Abstract: Learning computational thinking (CT) concepts is challenging for young students due to their abstract nature. Embodied cognition suggests innovative approaches that facilitate the learning of abstract concepts through bodily activities. Dr. Kyungbin Kwon will present two types of embodied learning activities designed for elementary students to teach CT concepts. The first study examined how students understood symbols and sequences of programming while engaging in bodily movement on a physical mat, which simulates programming tasks. This study revealed the effects of embodied learning activities in an unplugged learning setting. The second study explored how the unplugged activities could be transformed into plugged activities where immersive virtual objects were visualized on the physical mat. The findings suggested that the embodied learning activities improved conceptual understanding of CT concepts and revealed that students actively utilized their hand gestures to figure out sequences of codes, which demonstrates how students made links between embodied learning activities and programming tasks.

Speech Title: Performing Versus Observing Toward Equitable Learning Experiences: Group Debriefing in VR Learning Environment
Abstract: How can students in a large classroom benefit from virtual reality (VR)-based instruction despite limited equipment? Group debriefing based on observed VR experiences provides a potential solution. This study employed a two-by-two factorial design to empirically investigate the feasibility and effectiveness of debriefing and types of VR experiences on enhancing VR learning outcomes. Study results reported moderate effect sizes of debriefing on increasing knowledge test as well as performance scores of the VR learners but revealed no significant difference between direct and observed VR learning experiences. The findings reveal that students can benefit from vicarious VR learning experiences if an instructional component of debriefing is provided in educational practice.

Speech Title: Developing an App with Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality for Vocabulary Learning in a Mobile Learning Environment
Abstract: Despite studies on design and development of argument reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) apps for learning are on the rise, the majority of studies have developed the apps for enhancing students’ learning motivation and engagement in higher education for prescribed learning tasks in either formal or informal learning environments, few studies have been conducted to develop the AR and VR apps that serve to bridge in-class and real-life English as a second language (ESL) vocabulary learning based on the curriculum in primary education.
Against this backdrop, this study developed an app, named “VocabGo” that can be applied in a mobile learning environment to enhance pupils’ engagement and outcomes in vocabulary learning in line with the English curriculum. Premised on generative theory and dual coding theories of multimedia learning, ESL vocabulary acquisition, and the concept of mobile learning, the design of the app focuses on enhancing learners’ learning using AR / VR identified real-world objects / virtual objects with triggered vocabulary in real /virtual learning environments across different settings. In the meantime, premised on socio-cultural theory that children enhance their learning in different socio-cultural contexts and through social interactions with more skilled individuals, the app also provides opportunities for learners to comment on each other’s learning logs and strengthen their cognitive development in vocabulary learning. An exploratory study was conducted to evaluate the VocabGo app. The results show that the app helped increase students’ engagement and improve their vocabulary learning outcomes.

Speech Title: Exploration of E-Proctored Exam in Online Learning Environment
Abstract: While many common learning and teaching delivery such as lecturing and discussion, are easily handled using online learning systems and platforms, others, such as assessing learning outcomes using closed book exams, pose difficulties. The integrity of online assessments, that is, the necessity to perform the exams using the appropriate technologies and procedures, is one of the key problems in the online teaching and learning. Universities have used various e-proctoring tools to supervise online exams in response to the unexpected surge in online distance learning and the necessity to safeguard academic integrity. For the first time, Universiti Sains Malaysia had embarked on e-Proctoring in December 2020, during the pandemic COVID-19. Exploration of different e-proctoring platforms had been conducted to ensure that they fit the university's needs while also being cost effective and meeting the technological requirements of instructors and students. The presentation will go through some of the primary concerns and obstacles that were encountered when implementing e-proctoring for huge online examinations that were held remotely for students from various places. This describes one of the first attempts to adequately analyse a set of these tools and make suggestions to educational institutions. This investigation began with need analysis, e-proctor search and review, selection progressed to pilot testing (mock exam) by a group of lecturers and students. The selection of tools in the e-proctoring was based on the need analysis, with each phase building on the preceding phase's milestones and deliverables. The presentation outlines the findings of this inquiry and discusses them in detail.

Speech Title: Dance in Zoom: Using Video Conferencing Tools to Develop Students' 4C Skills and Self-efficacy during COVID-19
Abstract: In reaction to the COVID-19, the education community has been actively exploring different strategies to maintain their operation during the pandemic by switching teaching from face-to-face to online. Compared to other art disciplines, the use of technology in dance education has been seriously understudied. Modern technology affords multiple forms of data that can tap into student learning process and related constructs. In this talk, I would like to present a recent study conducted in Macau which looked into students’ and instructors’ points of view on the use of Zoom in dance education in developing students’ 4C skills (i.e., creativity, communication, collaboration, and critical thinking) as well as self-efficacy. A mixed-methods research design was adopted. Teacher observations and student surveys were conducted. Results showed significant increases in collaboration and creativity through activities and assignments on Zoom. Critical thinking and communication skills did not change significantly in Zoom-based dance class. Students’ self-reported self-efficacy significantly decreased after the implementation of Zoom. Also, students were generally satisfied with the use of Zoom in dance class. Findings were discussed both from students’ and the instructor’s perspectives in the context of the pandemic.

Speech Title: Students' Academic Achievement Prediction of SPOC
Abstract: In post epidemic era, online and offline blended teaching becomes a trend. Exploring the correlation between students' learning behavior and academic performance in SPOC will benefit blended teaching. During the epidemic period, we collected students' behavior data on an 8 weeks' flipped classroom based on SPOC and then adopted decision trees and neural networks to predict the key factors affecting students' performance. The results show that (1) learning habits have significant impact on students' performance: the students who previewed the course and those who watched videos before practicing get significantly higher scores of assignments and mid-term works; Learners' learning duration have a significant positive impact on their own scores of mid-term written examination and mid-term works. (2) The predictive value of students' periodic performance is different, and video learning ratio and the number of excellent works are common predictors of various academic achievement indicators. The primary factor to predict the performance of the mid-term works is the assignments' quality, and then the number of excellent works. However, the student's GPA in the previous year is indirectly predict students' score of this course. The research results will provide strategic guidance and experience for improving the effect of blended teaching based on SPOC.
