According to this paper, a systemic review of 38 studies, "Adaptive learning technologies are closely related to learners' self-regulatory processes in individual and collaborative learning." The authors elaborate, "we identified the seven main objectives (feedback and scaffolding, self-regulatory skills and strategies, learning trajectories, collaborative learning processes, adaptation and regulation, self-assessment, and help-seeking behaviour) that the adaptive technology research has been focusing on." As an aside, I've long wondered about the assumptions behind the term 'self-regulation', which implies a corrective function, as opposed to, say, 'engagement' or 'initiation', and such, which suggest greater empowerment. This idea of learning as doing something you don't want to do (and hence requiring willpower and self-regulation) doesn't really sit well with me.
