From a controlled lab to the wild classroom: a pathway to mining and orchestrating a multi-touch classroom
In a regular classroom or training setting, it is challenging for teachers to meet the needs of each student. Teachers do their best to manage their limited time and divide their attention focusing on the students who need closer coaching. As a result, some groups that needed support might be neglected. The use of multi-touch interactive tabletops in the classroom may afford the design of monitoring and controlling tools that can help the teacher to support students more effectively during and after the classroom sessions. This talk presents an overview of our ongoing pathway to design and apply a variety of data mining techniques and orchestrating tools to be used at a multi-tabletop classroom.
