Yazdani Abstract: AI and Education: a discussion of ITS and their relation to Learning Environments
Focusing at first on the engineering dimension of the AI enterprise, Yazdani provides a review of some leading work in the US, by the likes of William Clancey and
Brown and Burton, and John Anderson and then his own R&D efforts to aid foreign language instruction in the United Kingdom. In contrast to the “bug catalog” approach
of Brown and Burton, he concluded that grammar based error analysis of generated sentences required ITS sensitivity to interference effects from the native language
of the student. This made congenial certain arguments by Lawler and led Yazdani to revise his original perspective that ITS and Learning Environments
were opposite ends of a continuum but were two different dimensions of a larger field of errors, to be explored differently in different domains.
