Areas of research and collaboration

Neither technology nor educational practice stands still.

We ensure that our commitment to a state-of-the-art learning enablement platform keeps pace with the advances in both technology and education.

Collaboration with leading universities and internal research projects are based on our five areas.

Our research is beneficial for the success of educational institutions, as well as the principals, teachers, students, and parents, who invest so much time and effort in them.

Understanding and accommodating individual learning needs:

  • Academic
  • Cognitive
  • Affective
  • Behavioural
  • Social
  • Emotional
  • Psychological

Engaging with emerging technologies to provide new opportunities for meaningful learning and assessment.

E.g. virtual reality technologies, face, gesture, behaviour, emotion recognition, electrodermal activity, eye-tracking.

Providing students and educators with opportunities to leverage insights based on the ongoing exchange of information, resources, strategies, experiences, and best practices as part of a wider community-driven educational ecosystem.

Developing approaches for automating and streamlining administrative processes.

Enable teachers to focus more time on engaging with students.

Facilitating large-scale analysis of data to drive predictions, recommendations, and classifications. This leads to ongoing improvements in teaching and learning practice as well as data-driven decision making (machine learning, learning analytics, and data visualisation).

University and research institutes partnerships

We are not alone in our passion for developing education.

We team up with PhD students, university researchers, and research institutes. Long-term partnerships that provide access to external expertise. Drives innovation, enhances educational solutions for all and gains deeper insights into organisational needs. Facilitates the transferral of knowledge into technology, driving future features of our platform.

Our current collaborations

Research Collaboration Centre (RCC) at Macquarie University
Developing an emotional and cognitive alert system for educators
Technology-enhanced pedagogy
Exploring internal and external schema acquisition and utilisation as it relates to education
Dynamic reading screening tool
Project Seat at the Table (SAT)
Assessing executive functions and problem-solving in students in an engaging and valid way
Research Collaboration Centre (RCC) at Macquarie University

The RCC will provide a foundation for bringing together industry and academic researchers to effectively work together to create new value by solving pertinent industry problems through collaborative research.

 

Cinglevue’s strategic priority is to progress the development of the Research Collaboration Centre (RCC) in conjunction with Macquarie University as this will effectively position Cinglevue to engage with the challenges and problems wanted to solve and ultimately provide a foundation for ongoing innovation of the Virtuoso platform.

Developing an emotional and cognitive alert system for educators

The aim of this project is to research, design, develop, and evaluate a system for recognising educationally relevant emotions from digital video captured during student learning activity within the context of an online learning platform. Recent work has been focused on exploring multimodal sentiment analysis (video, audio, and text-based inputs) to this end.

 

This project is supported through an Industry-based PhD scholarship in partnership with Edith Cowan University.

Technology-enhanced pedagogy

The aim of this project is to research, design, develop, and validate a suite of capabilities for better supporting the implementation of technology-enhanced pedagogical frameworks in Virtuoso platform. This project also involves the development of contextualised methods for measuring educational efficacy and impact as well as identifying new opportunities for Natural Language Processing (NLP) to provide insights into student learning.

 

Virtuoso has been utilised to engage with pre-service and in-service teachers to this end through a series of professional development webinars focusing on the translation of educational theories into practice.

 

This project is supported through a CSIRO SIEF STEM+ Business Fellowship Program in partnership with Macquarie University.

Exploring internal and external schema acquisition and utilisation as it relates to education

The aim of this project is to research, design, develop, and evaluate capabilities within Virtuoso platform that will allow educators and students to in some way measure the development of schemas during learning and have this information at hand when suitable to enhance educational practice.

 

This project is supported through an Industry-based PhD scholarship in partnership with Edith Cowan University.

Dynamic reading screening tool

The aim of this project concerns the development of a reading assessment tool for early years learning settings based on speech recognition technologies. The intent here is to greatly increase the frequency and coverage of reading assessments to support teachers to focus more of their time on utilising individual performance data to improve each student’s reading proficiency rather than having to administer each test manually.

 

This project is supported through a CSIRO SIEF STEM+ Business Fellowship Program in partnership with Edith Cowan University.

Project Seat at the Table (SAT)

The objective of this project is to gather an international community of students with a range of different perspectives to provide both primary and secondary school students a seat at the table in the discussion of the future of education, with focus on the role of technology.

 

The project is underpinned by a process of co-creation, with a focus on partnering with schools and students from across the globe.

Assessing executive functions and problem-solving in students in an engaging and valid way

The aim of this project is to research, design, develop, and evaluate a child-friendly and engaging cognitive assessment tool for students.

 

eFun app has been created with four games that measures three core executive functions, working memory, inhibition and cognitive flexibility and problem solving. It was tested in real world environments

 

This project is supported through an Industry-based PhD scholarship in partnership with Edith Cowan University.

Benefits of a collaborative research approach

Collaborative research benefits the collaborators from the school ecosystem, as well as our product development.

For teachers and principals

  • Access to evidence-based insights and a platform that improves teaching.
  • A more effective method to meet individual student learning needs.
  • Access to a supportive community.
  • A voice that allows your key challenges to be addressed.
  • A sense of achievement of contributing to a platform that is helping to develop progressive educational techniques.

For Cinglevue

  • Ongoing engagement with new ideas and perspectives that aid product development.
  • The agility needed to respond successfully to customer feedback and ever-evolving organisational requirements.
  • Opportunities to meet increasingly global competitiveness for technology that can be transferred into new product features.
  • Credibility in the development of research outputs, including peer-reviewed papers and publications.
  • Mutually beneficial knowledge-transfer between Cinglevue and our research partners.[/vcex_list_item]

Internal research projects

Our internal research projects provide the basis for transforming practice and are heavily centred around the educational establishments we work with.

We bring together the voices of school principals, chief information officers, teachers, and students.

We match their stated needs with the advances of technology and our own findings from research to improve our offerings.

Co-creation allows us to solve problems and respond to challenges that might otherwise go unvoiced or be unfeasible to introduce.

We run pilots as key opportunities for learning.

Student behaviour observation framework

Teacher observations of student behaviours and interactions can provide unique insights into learning progressions and proficiencies. A framework for documenting and collecting this information over time supports comparisons between different learning contexts.

Emotional state
reporting framework

This provides a better understanding of the role and characteristics of emotion during learning at the individual student level. In turn, this will provide a more informed basis for learning design and engagement.

ePortfolio and
digital badging

The ePortfolio and digital badging system will support the collation of evidence of learning and the development of student interests at a whole-of-system level. These affordances are closely integrated with lesson and task design to provide the foundation necessary for ongoing engagement, reflection, and feedback.
