About NIRE

We live in a time when technology is part of our daily lives. The devices that we all use make it possible to collect in real-time vast amounts of data about ourselves. This opens up novel opportunities for individuals and organisations, particularly in the field of education: children using digital games for learning, students and teachers monitoring progress, researchers undertaking ambitious data collection. However, a coherent view of how we can utilise these technological advances and complex data sets to understand learning processes in real-time is yet to emerge.

The seminar series aims to bring together experts, researchers and practitioners so we can:

  • discuss the ways technology can be best utilised in research and practice
  • promote the study of learning in real-time
  • provide useful guidelines for collection of real-time data
  • integrate real-time cognitions, emotions and behaviour into models of educational processes
  • discuss appropriate statistical methods for analysing such data.
