DIP: Collaborative Research: Impact of Adaptive Interventions on Student Affect, Performance, and Learning

PIs: Ivon Arroyo, Worcester Polytechnic Institute (Award Details) A. Lynn Stephens, Beverly Woolf, Robert Maloy, U. Mass Amherst (Award Details) Winslow Burleson, Kasia Muldner, Arizona State University (Award Details) A major factor influencing learning is students’ emotions and their general affective state. Given the pivotal role that affect plays in learning activities it is not […]

EXP: “Earthquake Rebuild” – Mathematical Thinking and Learning via Architectural Design and Modeling

PIs: Fengfeng Ke, Matthew Ventura, Valerie Shute, Kathleen Clark, Gordon Erlebacher Florida State University Award Details In this Cyberlearning: Transforming Education Exploration project, the PIs investigate how to help middle schoolers simultaneously develop mathematics understanding, mathematics skill, and mathematics disposition. They are taking design-based pedagogical approach, having students practice the math they are learning through […]

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, […]

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 […]

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 […]
