The emerging field of Learning Analytics (LA) promises to provide teachers with all types of data gathered real-time during lessons. This data could support teachers during differentiated instruction. A potential pitfall of providing teachers with such data on a screen-based dashboard, is information overload: comprehending the overload of information might decrease the valuable time available to attend to students. We present a pilot study in which data from Learning Analytics is provided to…

Student Learning Benefits of a Mixed-Reality Teacher Awareness Tool in AI-Enhanced Classrooms

A wearable, real-time teacher awareness tool: mixed-reality smart glasses that tune teachers in to the rich analytics generated by ITSs, alerting them to situations the ITS may be ill-suited to handle, which illustrates the promise of AIED systems that integrate human and machine intelligence to support student learning.

How Peripheral Interactive Systems Can Support Teachers with Differentiated Instruction: Using FireFlies as a Probe

This study aims to explore how to ease teachers' classroom differentiation by enabling effortless, low-threshold student-teacher communications through a peripheral interactive system using the 'FireFlies' platform.

ClassBeacons: Designing Distributed Visualization of Teachers' Physical Proximity in the Classroom

The design and evaluation of ClassBeacons, a novel ambient information system that visualizes teachers' physical proximity through tangible devices distributed over the classroom, and rich insights into how the system could influence teaching and learning are revealed.

Unobtrusively Enhancing Reflection-in-Action of Teachers through Spatially Distributed Ambient Information

ClassBeacons is evaluated, a system that uses spatially distributed lamps to depict teachers' ongoing performance on how they have divided their time and attention over students in the classroom to contribute empirical knowledge about how an HCI system enhanced teachers' process of RiA as well as a set of design principles for unobtrusively supporting RiA.

How Peripheral Data Visualisation Systems Support Secondary School Teachers during VLE-Supported Lessons

By offloading the secondary tasks of checking the students' level of concentration and progress to the visualisation, most teachers experienced more peace of mind and space to manage their primary teaching practice, and the peripheral data visualisation tool was well integrated in the teachers' practice.

The TA Framework: Designing Real-time Teaching Augmentation for K-12 Classrooms

This work contextualizes the framework using existing designs cases, to surface underlying design trade-offs: for example, balancing actionability of presented information with teachers' needs for professional autonomy, or balancing unobtrusiveness with informativeness in the design of TA systems.

The classroom as a dashboard: co-designing wearable cognitive augmentation for K-12 teachers

This paper reports on the co-design, implementation, and evaluation of a wearable classroom orchestration tool for K-12 teachers: mixed-reality smart glasses that augment teachers' realtime perceptions of their students' learning, metacognition, and behavior, while students work with personalized learning software.

FeetForward: On Blending New Classroom Technologies into Secondary School Teachers' Routines

The design and deployment of FeetForward - an open-ended, and foot-based peripheral interface to facilitate teachers’ use of interactive whiteboards is presented and implications on design of peripheral classroom technologies were generalized.

Designing Real-time Teacher Augmentation to Combine Strengths of Human and AI Instruction

When used in K-12 classrooms, AI-based educational software such as intelligent tutoring systems (ITSs) allows students to work at their own pace, while also freeing up the teacher to spend more time

Design proposal of a personalized Dashboard to optimize teaching-learning in Virtual Learning Environments

The research develops a methodology to analyze a set of data extracted from a Learning Management System in order to implement a Dashboard, which can be used by teachers to make timely and relevant decisions to improve the teaching-learning processes.



Lernanto: An ambient display to support differentiated instruction

Lernanto is an ambient display designed for secondary school classrooms, aimed at supporting teachers in challenging each student at his or her own level, i.e. differentiated instruction.

Thinking outside the box a vision of ambient learning displays

The authors' vision of ambient learning displays is outlined, enabling learners to view, access, and interact with contextualised digital content presented in an ambient way, based on a detailed exploration of the characteristics of ubiquitous learning and a deduction of informational, interactional, and instructional aspects to focus on.

Distributed Awareness for Class Orchestration

This work presents a model of students' activities during recitation sections that emphasize the issue of mutual awareness, i.e. monitoring help needs and TA's availability, and developed two awareness tools that increase the efficiency of interaction between students and teaching assistants.

FireFlies: physical peripheral interaction design for the everyday routine of primary school teachers

An open-ended interactive system called FireFlies is developed, which is intended to be interacted with in the periphery of the teacher's attention and thereby become an integral part of everyday routines.

Learning Analytics Dashboard Applications

A conceptual framework is presented that helps to analyze learning analytics applications for these kinds of users and whether dashboards contribute to behavior change or new understanding is assessed.

Issues in evaluating ambient displays in the wild: two case studies

The complex task of evaluating ambient displays, concentrating on issues within in-situ deployments, is discus, and suggestions on possible alternatives to explore are made based on the issues derived from the case studies.

Peripheral interaction: characteristics and considerations

The aim of the work presented in this paper is to support interaction design researchers and practitioners in anticipating and facilitating peripheral interaction with the designs they are evaluating or developing.
