Cyberlearning: Sensei: High-Fidelity, Non-Invasive Classroom Sensing for Professional Development

9/1/18-8/31/21 PIs: Amy Ogan, Yuvraj Agarwal, Christopher Harrison Carnegie-Mellon University Award Details For years, research has shown that moving away from large lectures and increasing student engagement and participation in classrooms significantly improves learning. Unfortunately, professors lack quality professional development opportunities to improve their instruction, and typically receive no training on how to teach. This […]

EXP: Readily Available Learning Experiences: Turning the Entire Web into Progressive Examples to Bridge Conceptual Knowledge Gaps for Novice Web Developers

9/01/2017-8/31/2020 PI: Haoqi Zhang, Eleanor O’Rourke Northwestern University Award Details Computing is changing our world, and there is an urgent need to train large numbers of professional developers to meet the demands of our nation’s economy. While it is relatively easy to learn basic computing concepts, acquiring the conceptual knowledge and problem-solving skills of professional […]

NetStat: EAGER: A Representation and Communication Infrastructure for Classroom Collaboration in Data Modeling and Statistics

9/1/16-8/31/20 PI: Corey Brady Vanderbilt University Award Details This project aims to enhance collaborative and participatory learning in classrooms, an important and enduring theme across both research and practice. The project will use design-based research to build and study NetStat, a classroom network system for supporting collaborative activities in data modeling and statistics. This project’s […]

CAREER: Designing a New Nexus: Examining the Social Construction of Electronics and Computing Toolkits to Broaden Participation and Deepen Learning

8/1/16-10/31/19 PI: Kylie Peppler Indiana University Award Details The persistently lopsided gender makeup of computer and information science programs in US universities and colleges suggests that the gender gap in computing education is still obstinately wide. Despite several national initiatives to diversify participation in STEM fields, the underlying culture of computing education remains relatively stagnant, […]

EXP: Collaborative Research: Perception and Production in Second Language: The Roles of Voice Variability and Familiarity

PI: Ricardo Gutierrez-Osuna, Texas A&M (Award Details) PI: John Levis, Iowa State University (Award Details) The U.S. economy is boosted by many highly skilled professionals from non-English speaking countries, who work in higher education, healthcare, and technology. These professionals typically have solid knowledge of English but age-related non-native pronunciations that can impair their intelligibility. Highly-skilled […]

DIP: Next Generation WeatherBlur: Expanding Non-Hierarchical Online Learning Community Models for Citizen Science

PIs: Ruth Kermish-Allen, Karen Peterman, Christine Bevc Maine Mathematics and Science Alliance Award Details This project is building and studying a new type of online learning community. The WeatherBlur community allows kids, teachers, scientists, fishermen/fisherwomen, and community members to learn and do science together related to the local impacts of weather and climate on their […]

DIP: Data Science Games – Student Immersion in Data Science Using Games for Learning in the Common Online Data Analysis Platform

PIs: William Finzer, Timothy Erickson, Frieda Reichsman, Michelle Wilkerson-Jerde Concord Consortium Award Details This project refines and studies technology for ‘data science games’: essentially, a game is embedded in a data analysis environment, in which the game can only be ‘won’ by doing data modeling. Research will examine how students learn to analyze and model […]

DIP: Digital Studios for Social Innovation Networks

PIs: Elizabeth Gerber, Matthew Easterday Northwestern University Award Details This proposal studies how virtual design studios can be used to support networks of people learning how to become the civic innovators of the future. Supporting learning from design and complex problem solving activities includes providing support for successfully solving problems and achieving goals as well […]
