EXP: Transforming High School Science via Remote Online Labs

PIs: Kemi Jona, David Uttal Northwestern University Award Details The PIs seek to understand better how online remote labs can be made to function effectively in high-school science classes, especially focusing on the roles of teachers as they facilitate investigations around those labs and how to support teachers in their roles. The big research issue […]

EXP: Collaborative Research: Fostering Ecologies of Online Learners through Technology Augmented Human Facilitation

PI: Carolyn Rose, Carnegie-Mellon University (Award Details) Marcela Borge, Penn State University (Award Details) This Cyberlearning: Transforming Education project brings together leading-edge researchers in computational linguistics and computer-supported collaborative learning to explore feasibility issues in designing an intelligent conversational agent that interacts with groups of learners as they are working together and provides cognitive, meta-cognitive, […]

EXP: Learning Lens: An Evidence-Centered Tool for 21st Century Assessment

PIs: Lucien Vattel, Paula Hidalgo, Michelle Riconscente GameDesk, Inc. Award Details In this Cyberlearning: Transforming Education EXP project, a collaborative team of assessment specialists, learning scientists, K12 educators, educational technologisst, and informal science educators are exploring the design and feasibility of a tool called the Learning Lens, a mobile multi-media tool for gathering data in […]

DIP: Collaborative Research: Taking Hands-on Experimentation to the Cloud: Comparing Physical and Virtual Models in Biology on a Massive Scale

PIs: Ingmar Hans Riedel-Kruse, Paulo Blikstein Stanford University Award Details In this Cyberlearning: Transforming Education DIP project, the PIs are building and evaluating a technological and curricular infrastructure to empower scalable, low-cost experimentations for undergraduates and K-12 students in the life sciences. The infrastructure exploits two technologies that have been developed by the PIs: biotic […]

BCC-SBE/EHR: Developing Community & Capacity to Measure Noncognitive Factors in Digital Learning Environments

PIs: Andrew Krumm, Britte Cheng SRI International Award Details Researchers from SRI International are building a collaborative research community to support the measurement of noncognitive factors associated with learning in science, technology, engineering and mathematics using data from digital learning environments. Constructs such as engagement, grit, tenacity and perseverance are examined as they are strong […]

EAGER: TAEMILE: Towards Automating Experience Management in Interactive Learning Environments

PIs: Jichen Zhu, Glen Muschio, Aroutis Foster Drexel University Award Details A key challenge for interactive learning environments is how to automatically co-regulate “balancing learners” autonomy with the pedagogical processes intended by educators. In this Cyberlearning: Transforming Education EAGER project, the PIs are exploring the use of experience management (EM) to address this issue. They […]

EXP: Digital Lofts: Online Learning Environments for Real-World Innovation

PIs: Matthew Easterday, Elizabeth Gerber Northwestern University Award Details In this Cyberlearning: Transforming Education EXP project, researchers focus on developing the civic innovators of the future. To become civic innovators, learners must gain experience tackling complex, ill-structures design challenges that are not easily solved by a single individual within a fixed time frame. Such education […]

EXP: Macro Data for Micro Learning: Developing FUN! for Automated Assessment of Computational Thinking in Scratch

PIs: Deborah Fields, Taylor Martin Utah State University Award Details This Cyberlearning: Transforming Education Exploration Project is designed to advance understanding of how to personalize feedback and advice to learners as they engage in exploratory and creative activities in constructionist technology-enhanced learning environments. During such activities, learners often engage in programming (using, e.g., Scratch, Alice) […]

EXP: Building a Learning Analytics System to Improve Student Learning and Promote Adaptive Teaching Across Multiple Domains

PIs: Marsha Lovett, Christopher Genovese Carnegie-Mellon University Award Details This PI team aims to use artificial intelligence to exploit data collected from intelligent tutoring systems to provide feedback both to students and to teachers effectively and at the right times. The team is using a new analytic approach, which introduces hierarchical modeling to learning analytics, […]
