One of the prototypes of our students:

Let’s say that there is a relation between your reaction – speed and your study results. Let’s also say that there is a relation between the quality of your sleep and your reaction speed (and as a result your study results).

So, if we combine these data than

So if we do a test, like recognize your girlfriend and click on here we now your reaction speed. If we combine this with your sleeping patterns, we can start advising you.

In Hongkong elderly people that live alone regularly have a check-up. They do all kind of tests and 3 hours later they get actionable advice that helps them to live alone longer. Can you do the same for students? Can you do a Study Check Up? And give a student actionable advice that helps in their study performance?

@Fontys we are planning a Xplorelab to find an answer to this question.

CONCENTRATION MEASUREMENT
Can we determine when your concentration level is ideal for studying? And when it is better to stop a take a break. Can we determine cup-a-soup moments? Students Wesley and Joris are trying to find the answers!

Man, a lot of bad jokes in this item 🙂

Today we filled out our application for presenting a session on Educause Anaheim 2016.  In june we will know if we get an invitation.

January 11th 2016
Okay, first entry. Just before Christmas I got a fitbit. It monitors sleep, steps, heartrate and climbing stairs. This morning I arrived at work and I forgot to wear the fitbit. For a short moment I was thinking about riding the elevator, because there was no fitbit to register my stair climbing. Than I realized I have to take the stairs because it is healthy, not because I have a fitbit.

Damn, I think the thing works.

More about the Quantified Student Community:
Quantifiedstudent.nl is a community that is exploring if it is possible to enhance study succes by collecting data about student behavior and feeding that information back to the student.

In this community we talk, we collect articles and papers and – most importantly – we do projects. Our current projects are:

QS_StudyTrackerApp_LogoA STUDYBEHAVIOR APP (First results)
Can we built a runtracker app for study behavior? In this project groups of students in a mobile learning lab are  building prototypes with the goal of giving feedback to students about their studybehavior (sleep, excercise, on campustime, online, offline, etc..). More…

CONCENTRATION MEASUREMENT (First results)
Can we determine when your concentration level is ideal for studying? And when it is better to stop a take a break. Can we determine cup-a-soup moments? Students Wesley and Joris are using biomedical information to try and and find the answers!

COLLECTING RAW DATA (started)
If we collect biomedical data from a large group of students? If we add temperature, dust, light, weather, location and so on. What can we learn from this data and how can we use it to enhance study performance?

QUANTIFIED MEDIC STUDENT (started)
In the Netherlands, several (medical) educational institutes use the Scorion medical e-portfolio. This portfolio measures most of the study activities by the forms and variables students have to fill out during their programm.  In this project, we specificly have asked medical studies to look at their data an formulate the questions that can tell us anything about studysucces. What does all their data tell them? More…
