Erin Walker. This poster and demo will showcase the EMBRACE iPad app, an intelligent tutoring system for reading comprehension. The application works by scaffolding young English Language Learners as they create internal, dynamic simulations of the text content. Project: Enhanced Moved by Reading to Accelerate Comprehension in English This is a station in the Cyberlearning […]
James Lester. The major goals of the project are to design, develop, and refine an integrated affect and dialogue management model that adaptively responds to students’ affective states in the course of their learning interactions. Project: Adapting to Affect in Multimodal Dialogue-Rich Interaction with Middle School Students This is a station in the Cyberlearning 2016 […]
Carolyn E. Psenka. Wayne State, Penn State and Oregon State universities are collaborating to develop the CooL:SLiCE cyberlearning platform for enabling research in support of sustainable lifecycle engineering education. The CooL:SLiCE cyber-platform consists of three main modules for analyses of environmentally responsible product design: an online CAD and design repository, a manufacturing analysis engine, and […]
Cynthia D’Angelo. This demo shows our three-person collaboration activity station and we will present the preliminary results of group level collaboration quality coding as a first step in automating targeted feedback to teachers using student speech data. Project: Speech-Based Learning Analytics for Collaboration This is a station in the Cyberlearning 2016 Gallery Walk.
Jenna Marks. We describe the design of the Invention Coach, which is based on a two-pronged approach. Our design was informed by our own study of naturalistic teacher guidance for Invention along with prior research on the mechanisms of learning from Invention. Project: The Invention Coach This is a station in the Cyberlearning 2016 Gallery […]
Jennie Chiu and Charles Xie. This demo introduces the Frame, a novel mixed-reality technology that uses everyday objects to control a molecular simulation. Students feel as if they are directly experimenting with gas molecules through simultaneously connected real-life objects. Project: Mixed-Reality Labs This is a station in the Cyberlearning 2016 Gallery Walk.
Matthew Bernacki. Many students enter STEM majors with insufficient learning skills for the challenging coursework they encounter. This project examines how web-delivered training on principles of learning can help students adjust their tactics & improve achievement. Project: Learning Analytics and Theory as Guides to Improve Undergraduate STEM Education This is a station in the Cyberlearning […]
Florence Sullivan. The MLA method is rooted in Bakhtin’s notion of speech genres; it combines empirically derived qualitative models of situated action with statistical natural language processing techniques to aid in the analysis of collaborative group discussions. Project: Microgenetic Learning Analytics This is a station in the Cyberlearning 2016 Gallery Walk.
Andee Rubin. The Technology for Mathematical Argumentation project has explored digital tools with which elementary students can construct animated representation-based proofs of generalizations about arithmetic operations. Project: Technology for Mathematical Argumentation This is a station in the Cyberlearning 2016 Gallery Walk.
Eli Meir. I’ll show a demo of Save the Simploids: Understanding Experimental Design, a new lab from SimBio that provides students with guidance and then an open-ended playground in which to learn and practice experimental design, with personalized feedback. Project: Using dynamic formative assessment models to enhance learning of the experimental process in biology This […]
