Networks, classroom interaction and artificial intelligence


In this paper I discuss the design and implementation of a wireless intelligent personal electronic response system aimed at improving classroom interactivity, the formation of productive learning communities, bi-directional feedback and student learning. I have designed the system for use in small as well as large classes, addressing many of the problems faced by tutors and students when they use current technologies to improve classroom interactivity. I provide details of the hardware and software and explain the many uses of this system and how this system could also enable students attend classes and interact with the tutor and, when appropriate and available, the tutor’s robotic teaching assistants, without being physically present in the same classroom.
