Interactive Sensing Technologies

Digital technologies have brought about many changes in how people live, interact with one another, and learn. While many such technologies introduce novel, often compelling, possibilities for viewing content (e.g., virtual reality, animation), user-sensing technologies have allowed computers to achieve new levels of interactivity and enable deeper understanding by analyzing data captured from learners. For example, knowing whether a person is smiling or frowning can be a key indicator about the quality of a digital experience. Although the use of interactive sensing technologies in museums and science centers is still nascent, possible uses are being explored at a rapid pace and with particularly promising results in science, engineering, and technology learning.

By capturing more detailed information about learners, it becomes more possible to realize the ...
