  1. A Collaborative Interface for Teacher-Student Interaction in Virtual Environments

    SBC: STRANGE LOOP GAMES INC.            Topic: edIES17R0005

    In prior projects, including a 2015 ED/IES SBIR award, the team developed two immersive multiplayer virtual game environments. In Eco and Colony, middle school students collaboratively apply scientific practices within the virtual worlds to address challenges, such as the availability of resources and energy and maintaining clean water. With this Phase I funding, the team is developing a prototype ...

  2. Interactive Administrator Dashboard for Improving School-Wide Behavior Supports

    SBC: Liveschool Inc.            Topic: edIES15R0005

    In prior research and development, the project team developed LiveSchool, an online platform to track student behavior. With this Phase I funding, the team will develop and test a prototype of an administrator dashboard. The dashboard will generate reports on individual student behavior patterns across classes and on the prevalence of behavioral issues across different teachers. The dashboard will ...

  3. Machine learning for standoff detection of Special Nuclear Material (SNM)

    SBC: Clostra, Inc.            Topic: DTRA162001

    "Deep Learning for standoff detection of Special Nuclear Material (DLeN) applies the same deep learning techniques that allow computers to beat human performance in image recognition and the game of Go to detecting Special Nuclear Material. Spectral analysis and signal processing can in some cases be augmented by the use of much larger neural nets that conduct much deeper analysis of features of t ...

  4. Calibration of Ensemble Forecasts Using Reforecast Datasets

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC TECHNOLOGY SERVICES CO. LLC            Topic: DTRA06006

    The accurate numerical prediction of hazardous airborne plumes requires two important capabilities. First, meteorological conditions at fine spatial scale both at the time of plume release as well as a few hours into the future, and second, quantification of this information in a statistically reliable probabilistic framework. The proposed study will use a combination of fine-scale ensemble re-fo ...

  5. A virtual launchpad for learning at higher speeds

    SBC: Current Conceptions, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The overall goal is to develop a Virtual Learning LaunchPad prototype and to compare the learning by students viewing this prototype with a traditional video lecture. The Virtual Learning LaunchPad will merge six delivery methods to greatly compress delivery time of a complex concept in reproductive science. The technologies incorporated will be: 3-dimensional anatomical reconstructions, step-an ...

  6. From Assessment to Action

    SBC: Facet Innovation            Topic: N/A

    Diagnostic assessment is a technique in which a student’s answers to questions are used to identify appropriate further instructional actions, rather than solely to evaluate educational attainment. The technique is difficult to use because the average teacher has difficulty implementing it successfully. We will build an online diagnostic assessment system and use it to offer a unit-level diagnos ...
