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 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.
