Developing Cognitive Technology

Posted Dec. 10, 2009

Katherine Rawson and John Dunlosky (pictured in the Research Center of Educational Technology) are developing cognitive technology to promote the efficiency and durability of student learning. Their long-term objectives include training students to accurately evaluate their learning of important classroom concepts; the students’ evaluations are then used to efficiently control learning by allowing an auto-tutor to schedule practice of unlearned concepts in a manner to ensure long-term retention. This program is focused on improving student scholarship from grade school to college and is being supported by funding from the U.S. Department of Education and by a James S. McDonnell Foundation Collaborative Activity Award.
