    Abstract

    This paper presents an ongoing research towards the use of Language Technologies to provide lifelong learners with formative feedback. To this end, the paper briefly elaborates the theoretical background of conceptual development and existing Language Technology applications that can be used to identify and approximate learner’s conceptual development. It also presents preliminary results of proof of concept tests conducted to demonstrate the use of tools for diagnosing conceptual development and the generation of an expert-model. Finally, the paper provides initial findings towards the design of a conceptual development service.
