With the CraftTech Lab at the University of Colorado at Boulder and the Children’s Creativity Museum in San Francisco, we are studying adaptive expertise in youth as they design with a new genre of learning materials, software, and design tools called paper mechatronics.
SimBuilding is an interactive, intelligent environment in which learners are immersed in scenarios that mimic situations they would encounter in real workplaces. Personalized tutoring is provided based on analyzing learner behavior.
SmartCAD, a computer-aided design system with embedded computational engines, analyzes student design artifacts on a scientific basis and provides automatic formative feedback in numbers, graphs, and visualizations to guide student design processes on an ongoing basis.
How can you make a cardboard owl that flaps its wings? Or a paper flower that blooms? With funding from the National Science Foundation, we are working with the University of Colorado’s Craft Technology Lab and the Children’s Creativity Museum in San Francisco to study and enhance the engineering education potential of Paper Mechatronics, an […]
We’re developing sophisticated process analytics to make sense of the large quantity of student data associated with complex, open-ended engineering design tasks.
