This book reports on state-of-the-art research into intelligent systems, models, and architectures for educational computing applications. It provides cross-fertilization of information and ideas from researchers in the many fields that make up this interdisciplinary research area, including computer science, education, educational technology, psychology, and linguistics. The focus is on developing computational models of relevant aspects of learning and teaching processes. One of the central ideas behind Artificial Intelligence in Education, from the very origins of this research area, has been to develop computational learning support systems that maintain a close connection to the development of general cognitive models and architectures. In this sense, an important part of AI-ED is "applied cognitive science". This also implies a certain methodological rigor in the evaluation of intelligently supported learning environments. The subtitle "Shaping the Future of Learning through Intelligent Technologies" indicates a wide range of advanced information and communication technologies and computational methods applied to education and training. Innovation is sought in both the technology and in the educational scenarios. More and more, "design" is seen as a critical element in innovative learning scenarios. Relevant design aspects include interface and interaction design, as well as educational or instructional design.
