ITS-2014 Workshop -- SDSOL
First International Workshop on
Social Deliberative Skills in Online Environments

June 5 (maybe 6th), 1/2 day (time TBD)

In conjunction with the 12th International Conference on
Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITS2014)
Honolulu, Hawaii, June 5-9, 2014

This workshop will bring together researchers from an array of interests
who overlap on the interdisciplinary theme of supporting what we will call
Social Deliberative Skills in computer-based learning environments.  Social
deliberative skills (SD-skills) refers to skills that learners or
participants need in order to work toward mutual understanding, mutual
regard, and trust in deliberations in which participants start
with heterogeneous goals, assumptions, values, or world-views. The workshop
focus is on tools, features, and methods for supporting skills such as
perspective taking, meta-dialogue, social metacognition, and
self-reflection in online learning, dialogue, deliberation, and knowledge
