Who is Learning? Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Artificial Intelligence in K-12 and Higher Education

This study explores the use of Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, and Artificial Intelligence in K-12 and higher education. The use of advanced technologies, based on AI machines operating autonomously and constantly learning, are transforming education and will soon become ubiquitous. Explored for the study are innovative programs and advancements such as Unimersiv, a virtual reality application for higher education. Another promising application is IBM's Watson.

Influence of screen time on critical thinking in teens

The average number of hours teens spend on screen time according to The Common Sense Media Census Study (2015), is 9 hours which is more time than spent in school. High school students are asked how many hours they spend on screen time and asked to estimate the time on each type of screen time (Independent variable). The dependent variable is their score on a critical thinking scenario which is scored using a critical thinking rubric (Facione, 1994).

An Effective Model for Management, Configuration, and Functionality of Dispersed Research Teams

Dispersed, virtual research teams, who collaborate on scholarly projects in higher education, have many advantages such as cost savings and time/location flexibility. However, the teams face challenges of effective functionality, team configuration, and task management. The purpose of this presentation is to share an effective model to address the challenges and provide the results of the model evaluation. The presentation will enrich the audience’s understanding on how to enhance the dispersed team management and productivity.

Leading Virtual Research Teams for Collaboration, Engagement, and Advancement

Within the broad scope of research on virtual teams, there is scant research that specifically addresses the topic of virtual research teams in university environments. Existing research on virtual research teams primarily focuses on research and development within corporations (Hanebuth, 2015). However, the importance of virtual research teams is becoming more apparent as more and more faculty are interacting within the confines of online environments, especially faculty at universities with online education as a primary focus.

Networking the Bay Area: Continuing the Dialog to Promote Scholarship

In any organization, opportunities to collaborate with colleagues should be a process that is readily available. Unfortunately, in the field of research and the advancement of scholarship, individuals tend to feel isolated especially amidst an online doctoral program. The Bay Area SAS Networking group was created and continues to support SAS doctoral students as they progress through their academic journey to achieve a terminal degree via evening and all-day workshops.
