Research Institution
The proposed Phase I research will design and develop innovative technologies for the deployment of training and educational content to multiple platforms and realtime decision support, just in time learning, and adaptive training. Prototypes will include reuse of PACERs homeland security educational training content and deploy them on an iPhoneiPod Touch and integrated voice response system. This will complement PACERs existing technologies for web based training. The resulting prototypes and design specifications will serve as a foundation for a more comprehensive solution for the delivery of training content and assessments to support formal education, customized training, refresher training, and realtime decision support just in time training for the homeland security workforce to be delivered in Phase II. With appropriate content, these technologies will also benefit DHS by identifying K12 students with strengths and interests in mathematical and scientific exploration and recommend programs to continue interest throughout their educational progress.
