Would you like to give a 5 - 10 minute talk on how you use self-tracking at one of our meetups?

No answer yet

Why are you interested in self-tracking?

Well, I think biometric tracking data and portable wireless diagnostic devices could have a monumental impact on learning and optimal learning environments. The advent of so many new diagnostic and tracking tools haven't even neared the classroom yet and they are bound to cause a paradigm shift in the way we assess and address learning difficulties. I'm interested in finding the answers to questions like - how many students are underperforming in school due to a lack of sleep? At what points in the day are individual learners most attentive? Following the work being done at home in Dublin and in particular in MIT Media Lab with great interest. I also use my own diagnostic tracker - Ki Fit/Bodybugg :-).

Introduction

Delighted to see this group is in existence and look forward to swapping ideas and attending upcoming talks. My research interests (TCD) are in learning difficulties, educational neuroscience and optimal learning environments.
