Using Technology in Montessori Observation

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In recent years, Wildflower Schools have been experimenting with technological supports to supplement teacher observation in Montessori-based classrooms. This demonstration will show you how Wildflower has used wireless radio sensors and computer vision to gather classroom information—and how algorithms convert this data into Web-based visualizations for teachers. Learn about usability and impact, teacher insights, and future research and development plans to expand upon Wildflower’s initial findings.
