The Computer-Human Adapted Interaction group, CHAI, invite you to a demonstration of their Multi-touch Classroom 2.0.

On Thursday 6th CHAI will demo their vision of a possible “classroom of the future” and deliver a short talk about their research goals. CHAI research explores how teachers can benefit from using interactive tabletops in their classrooms, and hopes to provide teachers with a minimalist control tool to help them orchestrate classroom activities more efficiently through interactive tabletops. The second aim is to provide visual indicators about groups’ activities that can help teachers improve their awareness on the groups’ collaborative processes and possible problems.

Following R&D, a multi-tabletop classroom was arranged at CHAI to enact a number of authentic classroom sessions. They designed a classroom with 4 interactive tabletops, a wall projector and a number of sensors to bring into life a vision of a possible classroom of the future. This classroom will be used during tutorials of an undergraduate Management subject in Week 6 of this semester.
