Collaborative Research: Immersive Virtual Reality with Haptic Feedback to Improve Safety Hazard Recognition, Assessment, and Decision-Making Among Construction Professionals

9/1/19-8/31/22 PIs: Steven Ayer, Arizona State University (Award Details) Jeremi London, Virginia Polytechnic (Award Details) The construction industry accounts for hundreds of fatalities and hundreds of thousands of non-fatal injuries annually. The current modes of safety training do not effectively prepare practitioners to build safely. Research shows that safety learning occurs to a great extent […]

Connections of Earth and Sky with Augmented Reality (CEASAR): Transforming Collaborative Learning Practices with Shared and Embedded Digital Models

10/1/18-9/30/20 PIs: Robb Lindgren, Nathan Kimball, Emma Mercier, Jina Kang University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Award Details Augmented reality (AR) technologies are becoming increasingly accessible and there are promising opportunities to develop interactive virtual content that can be shared and worked on by multiple users. The Connections of Earth and Sky to Augmented Reality (CEASAR) […]

CHS:EAGER:Aiding Reasoning about Correlation and Causation

4/1/19-3/31/21 PI: Francesco Cafaro Clark University Award Details People are increasingly exposed to data and datasets in everyday life, in domains from health and science to news and policy. This raises important questions about how to help non-specialists make sense of those data, in particular, around understanding how to think about correlation and causation. These […]

Synthesis and Design Workshop: The Future of Embodied Design for Mathematical Imagination and Cognition

9/1/18-8/31/19 PI: Mitchell Nathan University of Wisconsin-Madison Award Details This workshop will convene May 20-22, 2019 at the University of Wisconsin in Madison, WI For more information or to apply, visit the workshop website The next generation of digital learning environments for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) content will be more interactive, more personalized […]

Signing Avatars & Immersive Learning (SAIL): Development and Testing of a Novel Embodied Learning Environment

8/1/18-7/31/20 PIs: Lorna Quandt, Melissa Malzkuhn Gallaudet University Award Details Improved resources for learning American Sign Language (ASL) are in high demand. Traditional educational materials for ASL tend to include books and videos, but there has been limited progress in using cutting-edge technologies to harness the visual-spatial nature of ASL for improved learning outcomes. Interactive […]

EXP: To Enact, To Tell, To Write: A Bridge to Expressive Writing through Digital Enactment

9/01/2017-8/31/2020 PI: Sharon Lynn Chu, Francis Quek, Beverly Irby Texas A&M University Main Campus Award Details This cyberlearning project explores a novel approach, called Digitally-Augmented Enactment (DAE), to support learning expressive writing by children at the critical grade 4-5 developmental period, with a focus on English Language Learners (ELLs). Expressive writing is core to the […]

DIP: Collaborative Research: Interactive Science Through Technology Enhanced Play (iSTEP)

PIs: Noel Enyedy, Carlos Wagmister, Jeffrey Burke, UCLA (Award Details) Joshua Danish, Indiana University (Award Details) The iSTEP project addresses a basic research question by exploring the role of the body and physical activity in learning through the design of a new genre of developmentally appropriate learning technologies for young children. There is increasing recognition […]

EXP: Promoting Learning through Annotation of Embodiment (PLAE)

PIs: Joshua Danish, Ben Loh, Noel Enyedy, Matthew Brown, Jeffrey Burke Indiana University Award Details The Promoting Learning through Annotation of Embodiment (PLAE) project will research how new motion-tracking technologies and augmented reality can be adapted to support young children’s science learning in the classroom. Embodied resources – gesture, physical motion, and one’s location in […]

EXP: Advancing Early STEM Learning through Haptic Feedback Displays

PIs: Anne Marie Piper, Ellen Wartella, J. Edward Colgate Northwestern University Award Details Improving Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education is a national priority. Children in the U.S. have continued to fall behind their international peers in math and science scores on international assessments. Not only are students behind in STEM concepts, but they […]

EXP: BodyVis: Advancing New Science Learning and Inquiry Experiences via Custom Designed Wearable On-Body Sensing and Visualization

PIs: Jon Froehlich, Tamara Clegg University of Maryland College Park Award Details As technologies become smaller and more portable, the possibility of wearable computing becomes more and more realistic. This proposal takes advantage of this possibility to help elementary school aged children learn about anatomy and physiology by making clothing with sensors and displays to […]
