Lamb, Owens receive Best Research Paper Award

Research from the College of Education’s Neurocognition Science Laboratory received recognition at the third International Educational Research Symposium. Dr. Richard Lamb, director of the lab and COE professor, collaborated on the work with Dr. Tosha Owens, ECU associate professor of special education, and Dr. Ikseon Choi, assistant dean of educational systems science at Emory University.

The paper discusses the integration of artificial intelligence and wearable sensors to measure, understand, and predict student cognitive and affective states which underly behavioral outcomes in the classroom. The paper shows evidence and argues that by understanding these underlying states, it becomes possibly to not only meet the needs of all students but to anticipate their needs and create a responsive and automatically adaptive environment more fully differentiating and individualizing education. The paper brings together the fields of educational technology, neuroscience, cognitive science, and special education.
