DYNAMIC TRANSITIONS DURING COLLABORATION

PROJECT OBJECTIVE 
 
Leveraged human-AI complementarity and  human-centred design to co-design an AI-based orchestration tool that distributes power across teachers, students, and technology. This orchestration tool is situated in middle school math classrooms while engaging in dynamic transitions between individual and collaborative learning. 

ROLE 
 
Postdoc Fellow

PROJECT DIRECTIONS

We are developing orchestration technology that allows teachers to pair students dynamically, meaning un-planned and as needed, during classroom activities. We enact a participatory approach to create technology with teachers and students that accounts for their needs when pairing and unpairing student dyads. 


DESIGN PROCESS 

Using participatory methods, including storyboard speed-dating, co-design workshops, and user testing sessions we explore teachers' preferences regarding dynamic pairing and co-construct technology to support their needs.
