Abstract

This review aims to provide a concise overview of four distinct research fields: Artificial Intelligence and EDucation (AIED), Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL), Educational Data Mining (EDM), and Learning Analytics (LA). While all four fields are focused on understanding learning and teaching using technology, each field has a relatively unique or common perspective on which theoretical frameworks, methods, and ontologies might be appropriate. In this review we argue that researchers should be encouraged to cross the boundaries of their respective field and work together to address the complex challenges in education.
