Abstract

Recent research examining learning in informal environments reflects a growing recognition of the important role adults play as learning brokers by identifying and orchestrating connections to learning opportunities such as access to people, spaces, programs, and information sources. In order to broker learning, educators need to have knowledge about youth as well as potential opportunities. This position paper argues for the design and development of a recommender system to support educators in brokering learning that makes use of log data from an online social learning network.
