EXP: Enabling Pedagogical Communication Between Learning and Programming Environments

PI: Michael Clancy University of California-Berkeley Award Details Continuing increases in computer power have led to significant advances in iteractive software-development environments (IDEs) that aim to help programmers plan, write, test, and fix programs efficiently. Learning management systems (LMSs), which make available learning resources and activities, have similarly evolved to support good pedagogical practice, such […]

EXP: RUI: Exploring Spatial-Temporal Anchored Collaboration in Asynchronous Learning Experiences

PIs: Brian Dorn, Larissa Schroeder, Kevin Ball University of Nebraska at Omaha Award Details The researchers on this project are developing and studying a web-based multi-media platform that will allow special-temporal annotations intended for collaboration in post-secondary courses. The use of digital web-hosted media is becoming increasingly commonplace and important in postsecondary educational environments. Instructors […]

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, […]

INDP: Inquiry Hub

PIs: Tamara Sumner, Janet Carlson, William Penuel, Michael Wright, Patricia Kincaid University of Colorado at Boulder The “Inquiry Hub” project brings together a partnership of educational researchers, computer scientists, school district leaders, curriculum developers, interactive resource providers, and multiple publishers of STEM curricula to undertake a systemic approach to learner-centered teaching that promotes adaptability and […]

EXP: Collaborative Research: A System of Animation Gestures for Effective Teaching Avatars

PIs: Voicu Popescu, Nicoletta Adamo-Villani, Purdue University (Award Details) Susan Cook, University of Iowa (Award Details) Howard Friedman,University of California-Riverside (Award Details) This project addresses the challenge of making avatars used in tutoring systems and other learning technologies more engaging and more effective learning guides. One focus is on making the movements of an avatar […]

DIP: Collaborative Research: A Personalized Cyberlearning System Based on Cognitive Science

PIs: Richard Baraniuk, Rice University (Award Details) Elizabeth Marsh, Duke University (Award Details) Investigators from Rice University and Duke University will build a Personalized Cyberlearning System, designed around three principles from cognitive science (retrieval practice, spacing, and enhanced feedback), that leverages advances in machine learning and makes use of an existing instructional content material and […]

EAGER: Collaborative Research: Technology to Support Mathematical Argumentation

Andee Rubin, TERC (Award Details) Kimberle Koile, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Award Details) The big question being addressed in this project is, “How can technology support the teaching and learning of mathematical argumentation?” This EAGER proposal focuses on the first steps in moving towards the vision of helping youngsters learn mathematical/algebraic argumentation. The project has […]
