team-photoThe Intelligent Augmented Cognition for Teaching (I-ACT) project brings together a team spanning computer science (artificial intelligence, AI-based learning technologies) and education (learning sciences, teacher training), which is supplemented with additional expertise in educational psychology and economics. PI Krista Glazewski (Indiana University, Instructional Systems Technology) is an expert in teacher professional development, problem-based learning, and scaffolding, and PI James Lester (Computer Science, North Carolina State University) is an expert in AI-based learning technologies. They are joined by Co-PI Thomas Brush (Instructional Systems Technology, Indiana University) and Co-PI Cindy Hmelo-Silver (Learning Sciences, Indiana University) who bring expertise in teacher professional development, problem-based learning, and computer-supported collaborative learning, and Co-PI Bradford Mott (Computer Science, North Carolina State University), who brings extensive experience in AI-based learning technologies. The team has a history of collaboration on NSF supported research, and they are joined by senior personnel and consulting collaborators in educational psychology, AI-based learning technologies, and economics, as well as a panel of expert teachers.
