Educational Behavior Apps and Wearable Devices: Current Research and Prospects
Lowe, Heather
Educational Technology, v56 n4 p30-33 Jul-Aug 2016
Dartmouth and MIT have developed educational behavior apps and wearable devices that collect contiguous streams of data from student users. Given the consent of the user, the app collects information about a student's physical activity, sleep patterns, and location to form conjectures about social and academic behavior. These apps have the potential to capture behavior patterns that help students succeed at postsecondary institutions, both academically and psychologically.
