Full description

The data set generated by this project represents the collaborative efforts of researchers at the University of Melbourne, the University of Queensland, and the Australian Council for Educational Research to investigate a wide variety of phenomena within the growing field of educational neuroscience. The importance of the data set arises from the capacity of the Science of Learning Classroom to document student learning activity in complex social settings at a level of detail not previously possible anywhere in the world. Simultaneous use of up to 16 video channels supplemented by high quality multi-channel audio will generate one of the most detailed documentations of classroom learning ever attempted. Meticulous meta-data tagging will ensure that the complex data set is searchable and manipulable for the purposes of multiple parallel analyses.

Significance statement

This unique data collection is intended to support the investigation of a wide variety of phenomena within the growing field of educational neuroscience. The importance of the data set arises from the capacity of the Science of Learning Classroom to document student learning activity in complex social settings at a level of detail not previously possible anywhere in the world. Simultaneous use of up to ten video cameras supplemented by high quality multi-channel audio will generate the most detailed documentation of classroom teaching and learning ever attempted. A clinical observation/interview room will support video-stimulated post-lesson interviews and/or clinical trials of instructional techniques, stimuli or resources and the careful piloting of methods designed to generate socio-cultural data in classroom-like settings. Research designs will connect experiments conducted in the Melbourne-based classroom facility with associated clinical investigations at the Queensland Brain Institute. Meticulous meta-data tagging will ensure that the combined data set is searchable and manipulable for the purposes of multiple parallel analyses.

The various projects made possible by the new facility will generate data on cutting-edge contemporary research questions related to such phenomena as: dyadic and small group problem solving; learning arising from student interpretation and construction of representations of scientific and mathematical concepts; the learning consequences of specific instructional prototypes already identified through international comparative research; teacher learning (including novice-expert studies of teacher selective attention and decision-making); metalinguistic knowledge and dialogic teaching in Indigenous and other educational contexts; the structured provision of feedback to support student learning; and predicting confusion in e-learning contexts.

The resultant data collection will support a range of differently targeted analyses in relation to a variety of research designs. The significance of the data collection lies in the quality of the audio- visual data generated in both Classroom and Observation/Interview Room settings and the internal connectivity of the data set, achieved through fine-grained meta-data tagging, that renders the data collection searchable for a wide variety of research purposes.
