Sensor Immersion

iSAT researchers observe in the classrooms and collect video and audio data of students working together.

We work to elevate artificial intelligence (AI) from an intelligent tool to a social, collaborative partner in the classroom. Our AI-partners will be teacher assistants that augment teachers to do what they do best: inspire students.

We are motivated by a foundational—and challenging—question:  How can we promote collaborative and deep conceptual learning for students from all walks of life? We believe rising to this challenge will provide equitable learning experiences that will transform classrooms everywhere.

How We Do It

Over the course of our 5-year project our researchers will address three main challenges, which we call “Strands.” Learn more about our research Strands by following the links below! 

  • Strand 1: We are working to develop new advancements in how machines process human language, gestures and emotions.
  • Strand 2: Our team is striving to better understand how students, AI, and teachers can collaborate effectively in both classrooms and remote learning contexts.
  • Strand 3: We are in classrooms in Denver Public Schools and other school partners—virtually, during the age of COVID-19—working hand-in-hand with students and teachers to think up new technologies.
