DIP: Collaborative Research: Mixed-Reality Labs: Integrating Sensors and Simulations to Improve Learning

PIs: Charles Xie, Concord Consortium (Award Details) Jennifer Chiu, University of Virginia (Award Details) This collaborative project is investigating the characteristics of a mixed-reality learning environment that combines the rich context and multi-sensory experiences of a physical lab with the interactive simulations of a virtual lab. The hybrid environment integrates sensors and simulations to bring […]

CAP: Collaborative Research: Building a Network to Advance Collaborative Research on Young Children’s Learning through Public Media Assets

Brigid Barron and Roy Pea, Stanford University (Award Details) Reed Stevens, Northwestern University (Award Details) This Cyberlearning Capacity-Building project brings together learning scientists, experts in media creation, experts in child development, producers of public media assets, parent, and educators in an effort to build social infrastructure that will support bringing what is known about how […]

EXP: Collaborative Research: Engaging Interdisciplinary Students in Innovation Education through Crowd-based Technology

Steven Dow, Carnegie-Mellon University (Award Details) Elizabeth Gerber, Northwestern University (Award Details) This project team is exploring how crowd-based technology can support innovation education through feedback from potential customers and users, specifically looking at how the new forms of authentic feedback can be put to good use to support learning better to design, solve problems, […]

EXP: Students Authoring Intelligent Tutoring Systems for Constructing Models of Ill-Defined Dynamic Systems

PIs: Kurt VanLehn, Daniel Childers Arizona State University Award Details The PIs, one expert in intelligent tutoring systems, and the other an expert on ecosystems, are investigating the ways model construction can aid in the understanding of complex dynamic systems, specifically ecosystems and systems involved in sustaining life on our planet. The PIs are particularly […]

EXP: Developing STEM Identities through Participation in Science-Infused Media and Virtual Peer Networks

PIs: June Ahn, Mega Subramaniam, Allison Druin, Kenneth Fleischmann University of Maryland College Park Award Details Researchers are seeking to understand the roles that school libraries, school librarians, and virtual peer networks (VPNs) can play in helping middle-school students become interested in STEM, imagine themselves in STEM careers, and see themselves as interested-in-science people. In […]

EXP: Collaborative Research: Using Smartphone-Based Participatory Simulations to Engage Children in Scientific Thinking

PIs: Elliot Soloway, Christopher Poulsen, Michael Bailey, Joseph Krajcik University of Michigan Ann Arbor Award Details This project is investigating the potential that the combination of mobile devices and cloud computing offers to engage middle school children in scientific exploration using the same simulations and other tools that scientists employ to decompose, visualize, and understand […]
