About the Program
Bringing Intuitive Learning to High Schools
Students in the Learning Sciences & Technologies (LST) program work closely with faculty at the cutting edge of artificial intelligence, cognitive psychology, educational data mining, and human-computer interaction, to understand the response to educational software in real time, and how responses impact learning.
LST students are exposed to every aspect of educational technology and may choose their focus, such as designing pedagogy and/or software, building it, implementing and deploying programs, or mining the data collected. Upon completion of an MS or PhD in this program, graduates will be ready to contribute to the essential transformation of the current U.S. educational system, through their own products and businesses, or as educational specialists.
ASSESSMENT MODELING FOR SUCCESS
By combining data mining and cognitive sciences techniques, students can, as never before, perform deep analysis of large amounts of data.
