Abstract

Instructors are often multitasking in the classroom. This makes it increasingly difficult for them to pay attention to each individual's engagement especially during activities where students are working in groups. In this paper, we describe a system that aids instructors in supporting group collaboration by utilizing a centralized, easy-to-navigate dashboard connected to multiple pods dispersed among groups of students in a classroom or laboratory. This allows instructors to check multiple qualities of the discussion such as: the usage of instructor specified keywords, relative participation of each individual, the speech acts students are using and different emotional characteristics of group language.
