The Ateneo Laboratory for the Learning Sciences brings together artificial intelligence, data mining and statistics, education, cognitive psychology, human factors and other disciplines to study, enhance, and develop environments that improve student achievement and the learning experience. In this workshop, we will give participants an overview of laboratory’s goals and directions. We will discuss our work in affect and behavior detection and response in programming environments and intelligent tutors, as well as the design and development of interfaces that are sensitive to biometric readings and use behaviors. The purpose of this workshop is to acquaint fellow faculty members and current or prospective graduate students with our ongoing research, and in so doing to foster collaboration and encourage participation.
