While training and feedback opportunities abound for K-12 educators, the same can't be said for instructors in higher education. Currently, the most effective mechanism for professional development is for an expert to observe a lecture and provide personalized feedback. But a new system developed by Carnegie Mellon University researchers offers a comprehensive real-time sensing system that is inexpensive and scalable to create a continuous feedback loop for the instructor.
More than 100 Carnegie Mellon University students participated in an on-campus challenge last month, designing solutions for an emerging field so new that the technology, a pair of Bose augmented reality (AR) glasses, wasn’t even available to the participants.
The upcoming Bose AR technology will enable developers to superimpose sound on top of the real world based on location or head gestures, creating opportunities for novel experiences with learning, music, travel, and more.
Many experts from the learning sciences and educational technologies communities gathered at the University College London (UCL) Institute of Education in London last week for not one but three conferences during the London Festival of Learning.
