DIP: Collaborative Research: Taking Hands-on Experimentation to the Cloud: Comparing Physical and Virtual Models in Biology on a Massive Scale

PIs: Ingmar Hans Riedel-Kruse, Paulo Blikstein Stanford University Award Details In this Cyberlearning: Transforming Education DIP project, the PIs are building and evaluating a technological and curricular infrastructure to empower scalable, low-cost experimentations for undergraduates and K-12 students in the life sciences. The infrastructure exploits two technologies that have been developed by the PIs: biotic […]

DIP: Community Knowledge Construction in the Instrumented Classroom

PIs: Thomas Moher, James Slotta, Joel Brown University of Illinois at Chicago Award Details In this Cyberlearning: Transforming Education DIP (Development and Implementation) project, the PIs are addressing challenges of knowledge community pedagogy, where students are given a high level of agency and responsibility for developing questions, exchanging and critiquing ideas with peers, and advancing […]

DIP: The Science Through Technology Enhanced Play (STEP)

PIs: Noel Enyedy, Carlos Wagmister, Jeffrey Burke, Joshua Danish University of California-Los Angeles Award Details In this Cyberlearning: Transforming Education DIP (Development and Implementation) project, the PIs are investigating how embodied play among elementary school students can be used to help them understand scientific phenomena (e.g., the working of forces, complex behaviors of bees). They […]

Common Online Data Analysis Platform (CODAP)

PIs: William Finzer, Daniel Damelin Concord Consortium Award Details, Previous Award Details This project aims to engage students in meaningful scientific data collection, analysis, visualization, modeling, and interpretation. It targets grades 9-12 science instruction. The proposed research poses the question “How do learners conceive of and interact with empirical data, particularly when it has a […]

EAGER: TAEMILE: Towards Automating Experience Management in Interactive Learning Environments

PIs: Jichen Zhu, Glen Muschio, Aroutis Foster Drexel University Award Details A key challenge for interactive learning environments is how to automatically co-regulate “balancing learners” autonomy with the pedagogical processes intended by educators. In this Cyberlearning: Transforming Education EAGER project, the PIs are exploring the use of experience management (EM) to address this issue. They […]

EXP: Exploring the Potential of Mobile Augmented Reality for Scaffolding Historical Inquiry Learning

PIs: Doug Bowman, David Hicks, Jeffrey Ogle, David Cline Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University Award Details In this Cyberlearning: Transforming Education EXP project, researchers are addressing how and for what purposes Augmented Reality (AR) technologies can be used to support learning of critical inquiry strategies and processes; the question is being explored in the […]

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: 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 […]
