On 12/13 of October the EduTec Team finally hit the road again and met with the ALICE Project partners in Kiel at the IPN for the first post-pandemic f2f Workshop. Wuhuuuuuuuu! The purpose of the 2-day workshop was to work on an instructional model for designing and implementing instructional units in four domains – biology, chemistry, mathematics, and physics – and tracking students learning progression with learning analytics during these units.  The units will be hybrid in that they will take place in regular classrooms but will involve students working through instructional activities involving digital media. Instruction will be led by a regular teacher but will have students continuously interact with a (tablet) computer. In order to be able to analyze students learning progression using learning analytics across the four…

New Pub: Towards Automatic Collaboration Analytics for Group Speech Data Using Multimodal Learning Analytics

Collaboration is an important 21st Century skill. Co-located (or face-to-face) collaboration (CC) analytics gained momentum with the advent of sensor technology. Most of these works have used the audio modality to detect the quality of CC. The CC quality can be detected from simple indicators of collaboration such as total speaking time or complex indicators like synchrony in the rise and fall of the average pitch. Most studies in the past focused on “how group members talk” (i.e., spectral, temporal features of audio like pitch) and not “what they talk”. The “what” of the conversations is more overt contrary to the “how” of the conversations. Very few studies studied “what” group members talk about, and these studies were lab based showing a representative overview of specific words as topic clusters…
