Harnessing a Learning-Engineering Ecosystem
Students from the Master of Educational Technology and Applied Learning Science (METALS) Program attended SXSWedu earlier to inform members of the educational technology community about CMU's Simon Initiative.
California community colleges are taking part in a chatbot tool pilot aimed at getting students to interact and help each other with coursework. The collaborative tool was developed by researchers at Carnegie Mellon University.
"Learning science" is becoming a buzzword, but it means experimenting with new approaches and learning from what doesn't work as well as what does, writes Michael Feldstein. And everyone who teaches for a living must do it. Feldstein shares what he learned from CMU Simon Initiative experts.
Named for the late Nobel and Turing Award laureate Herbert Simon, this initiative harnesses a cross-disciplinary, learning-engineering ecosystem that has developed over several decades at CMU with the goal of measurably improving student learning outcomes. Learn more.
