July 2011 – August 2011. Working with Roy Pea, H-STAR

During my visit at H-STAR I am focusing on personal and group based learning situations in which tracking and sensor data are used to support individual and group learning processes. This is based on works on context-aware computing, ad-hoc context and group forming, mobile and ambient display technologies, and individual information hubs for reflection. In this research I am looking at the effects of new sensor technologies that are more and more embedded in everyday objects, and can help trigger personal reflections, individualized learning support, and group awareness and collaboration.
