Department of Applied Psychology and Human Development, OISE/University of Toronto
This short talk will look at the next generation of computing technology and education. The newly developing ability for computers to monitor the emotional state and physical well-being of the learner, in real-time, allows the educational psychologist to re-examine the relationship between learning and emotions. Improving the understanding of emotion/learning relationship has to potential improve the learning experience--this is especially true for students experiencing learning anxiety. Professor Woodruff will discuss the notion of academic confusion and its unexpected impact upon deep learning and math anxiety.
