Presentation Feedback Tool
The Presentation Feedback Tool is a system to facilitate the acquisition of oral presentation skills. This low-cost system uses simple sensors, paired with advanced multimodal signal analysis to automatically generate feedback reports that help individuals to identify problems with their body language, speech or slides. This system can be used autonomously, privately and repeatedly by students and instructors to practice and improve basic presentation skills.
Instrumented Learning Spaces
The Working Group on Instrumented Learning Spaces is a collaboration between NYU's Tandon School of Engineering and LEARN, funded by a subaward from the Center for Innovative Research on CyberLearning (CIRCL). This project involves coordinating a virtual working group and an in-person gathering in the Tandon Makerspace to explore affordances, constraints, and data infrastructure requirements for high-fidelity capture of performance, learning, and collaboration in active spaces. Products will include a shared, multi-modal data archive which researchers can explore to probe the possibilities for analyzing such novel data streams as well as a Rapid Community Report.
Integrating Physical Computing and Data Science in Movement Based Learning
This project, supported by an award from the National Science Foundation, is a collaboration between LEARN, STEM from Dance and University of Colorado Boulder to examine how to integrate machine learning, data science, and physical computing in the context of movement based learning in dance and cheerleading. Students will learn to create computing systems with programmable electronics worn on the body, use those systems to create statistical models of movement and gesture, and then apply the models in a digital experiential learning environment.
