Affective Prospecting integrates theoretical perspectives on learning with recent research in affective computing. These new perspectives are based on new research on emotion, cognition, and motivation applied to learning environments, Multimodal Human Computer Interfaces, and more.
This monograph integrates theoretical perspectives on affect and learning with recent research in affective computing with an emphasis on building new learning technologies. The "new perspectives" come from the intersection of several research themes: -¿Basic research on emotion, cognition, and motivation applied to learning environments -¿Pedagogical and motivational strategies that are sensitive to affective and cognitive processes -¿Multimodal Human Computer Interfaces, with a focus on affect recognition and synthesis -¿Recent advances in affect-sensitive Intelligent Tutoring Systems -¿Novel methodologies to investigate affect and learning -¿Neuroscience research on emotions and learning
Describes emerging technologies designed to develop learning environments capable of coordinating pedagogy and emotion
Uses affective technologies to explore the relationship between emotions and learning
Places the research in "real world" contexts such as the classroom, an exam, or a high stakes testing environment
Integrates theoretical perspectives on affect and learning with recent research in affective computing
Focuses on both methods and technologies that promote learning gains by responding to emotions
