Using multiple surfaces for collaborative learning and design for learning

29 April 2015

A Research on Learning and Educational Innovation seminar

This seminar fuses research on CSCL and collaborative design for learning. It reports a study located in a novel multisurface environment, configured to support small teams who are designing for other people’s learning. From observational and interview data, we show how collaborative design for learning needs to be understood as a complex, multisituated activity, in which design, problem-solving, tools and space usage depend on the fluent deployment of intuitive knowledge about mutual awareness, shared perception, information persistence and movement.

  • Speaker: Dr Roberto Martinez-Maldonado is a postdoctoral research associate on the ARC Laureate Fellowship at CoCo. He completed his PhD in 2014 in the Computer Human Adapted Interaction Research Group (CHAI) at the University of Sydney. His research area is human-computer interaction, with a particular emphasis on computer-supported collaborative learning and educational data mining. His research interests are broad and varied. These include applying data-mining techniques to help understand how people learn and collaborate, empowering people with emerging technologies, combining available technologies for capturing traces of collaboration and helping teachers to orchestrate their classroom through the use of interactive tabletops.
