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).

Data-Analytics

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

Generalizable timetable engine
Einstein-first physics curriculum
Technology-enhanced pedagogy
Virtual work-integrated learning environments
Dynamic reading screening tool
Assistant language teachers
Generalizable timetable engine

The aim of this project is to research, develop, and evaluate a timetabling solution which can be used to accommodate a wide variety of educational organisations, each of which has different needs with regards to the way they organise their students, classes, and educational resources.

 

Virtuoso will integrated the information and interface with other parts of the system (e.g. student course request, calendar, etc.).

Einstein-first physics curriculum

The aim of this project is to explore how our engaging learning platform can be utilised to support the development of a new physics curriculum which emphasises Einsteinian perspectives.

 

Virtuoso would standardise the delivery and evaluation of lessons and activities at a variety of participating schools, being a research platform for data collection as well.

Technology-enhanced pedagogy

Funding by CSIRO SIEF STEM+ Business Fellowship Program

 

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. 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 will be used as the technology tool through a series of workshops for teachers.

Virtual work-integrated learning environments
To aim of this project is to identify new insights into student learning, collaboration, and engagement in virtual learning environments as contextualised through industry-based practice. It can be leveraged to enhance teaching and learning outcomes more generally.
Dynamic reading screening tool

Project: Scaling a dynamic reading screening tool

 

The aim of this work is to develop a dynamic reading screening tool that is underpinned by automatic speech recognition capabilities. This is currently being pursued in collaboration with Dr. Neville Hennessey and Associate Professor Suze Leitão from Curtin University.

Assistant language teachers

Project: Developing a model for advancing the impact of assistant language teachers (ALTs) in Shizuoka Prefecture in Japan

 

The aim of this research is to develop a generalisable framework that can be utilised by Assistant Language Teachers (ALTs) to implement a broad range of pedagogical approaches that are associated with successful English Language learning outcomes in Shizuoka Prefecture. This is being conducted in collaboration with Ms. Akierah Binns who is currently an ALT in Shizuoka Prefecture in Japan and the research is supported by a grant from the Suruga Institute.

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.

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.
