Abstract

This paper proposes a template-based approach to semi-automatically create contextualized learning tasks out of several sources from the Web of Data. The contextualization of learning tasks opens the possibility of bridging formal learning that happens in a classroom, and non-formal learning that happens in other physical spaces, such as squares or historical buildings. The tasks created cover different cognitive levels and are contextualized by their location and the topics covered. We applied this approach to the domain of History of Art in the Spanish region of Castile and Leon. We gathered data from DBpedia, Wikidata and the Open Data published by the regional government and we applied 32 templates to obtain 16K learning tasks. An evaluation with 8 teachers shows that teachers would accept their students to carry out the tasks generated. Teachers also considered that the 85% of the tasks generated are aligned with the content taught in the classroom and were found to be relevant to learn in other non-formal spaces. The tasks created are available at https://casuallearn.gsic.uva.es/sparql
