DIP: Collaborative Research: Interactive Science Through Technology Enhanced Play (iSTEP)

PIs: Noel Enyedy, Carlos Wagmister, Jeffrey Burke, UCLA (Award Details) Joshua Danish, Indiana University (Award Details) The iSTEP project addresses a basic research question by exploring the role of the body and physical activity in learning through the design of a new genre of developmentally appropriate learning technologies for young children. There is increasing recognition […]

EXP: Promoting Learning through Annotation of Embodiment (PLAE)

PIs: Joshua Danish, Ben Loh, Noel Enyedy, Matthew Brown, Jeffrey Burke Indiana University Award Details The Promoting Learning through Annotation of Embodiment (PLAE) project will research how new motion-tracking technologies and augmented reality can be adapted to support young children’s science learning in the classroom. Embodied resources – gesture, physical motion, and one’s location in […]

EXP: BodyVis: Advancing New Science Learning and Inquiry Experiences via Custom Designed Wearable On-Body Sensing and Visualization

PIs: Jon Froehlich, Tamara Clegg University of Maryland College Park Award Details As technologies become smaller and more portable, the possibility of wearable computing becomes more and more realistic. This proposal takes advantage of this possibility to help elementary school aged children learn about anatomy and physiology by making clothing with sensors and displays to […]
