CAREER: Improving Adaptive Decision Making in Interactive Learning Environments

3/1/17-2/28/22 PIs: Min Chi North Carolina State University Award Details Interactive Learning Environments (ILEs) hold great promise for improving student performance in STEM education. While, traditionally, such systems have focused on teaching students subject matter, an equally important facet is to teach them how become better learners. The objective of this project is to develop […]

EAGER: Collaborative Research: Designing Digital Rails to Foster Scientific Curiosity around Museum Collections

PIs: Steven McGee, Michael Horn, Northwestern University (Award Details) Jaap Hoogstraten, Matt Matcuk, Field Museum of Natural History (Award Details) One of the best ways to engage people in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) at a young age is through informal museum experiences. Yet, the research base on understanding how learning and engagement develops […]

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: Collaborative Research: Gesture Enhancement of Virtual Agent Mathematics Tutors

PI: Dor Abrahamson, University of California-Berkeley (Award Details) Michael Neff, University of California-Davis (Award Details) In this Cyberlearning: Transforming Education EXP project, PIs from computer science and mathematics education are collaborating to investigate the use of gestures by teachers (both human and virtual) and learners in support of mathematics learning. They are investigating the ways […]

EXP: Transforming World Language Education using Social Robotics

PI: William Johnson, Kino Coursey Alelo Award Details This Cyberlearning Exploration Project explores the potential for social robotics to transform foreign-language learning. The social robot being developed in this project is designed to act as a language partner for students learning a foreign language, in this case those learning Chinese. It augments classroom instruction, providing […]

DIP: EMBRACEing English Language Learners with Technology

PIs: Arthur Glenberg, Erin Walker, M. Adelaida Restrepo Arizona State University In this Cyberlearning: Transforming Education DIP (Development and Implementation) Project, the PIs focus on how to address the English-language learning needs of young English-language learners (ELLs). They are enhancing the Moved by Reading (MbR) computer program that has been used to increase the reading […]
