The rapid advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AI), particularly generative AI, presents exciting possibilities alongside significant challenges for education. While AI can be a powerful tool, limited information reliability from some AI technologies and the ever-increasing need for new skills for work and life in the age of AI all highlight the importance of learning to learn effectively. This talk explores how educators and edtech developers can empower students to become independent, adaptable, and critical thinkers. We'll delve into the concept of self-regulated learning and its key components. We'll then introduce the FLoRA platform, designed with the use of AI and learning analytics to support reading and writing tasks that require synthesizing information from multiple sources. Through real-world examples from schools and higher education, we'll showcase how FLoRA leverages learning analytics and generative AI to enhance student learning. We'll discuss key findings and lessons learned that can directly inform teaching practice. Finally, we'll explore exciting opportunities for future partnerships to equip educators with the tools to foster the self-regulated learners of tomorrow.
