Illinois Digital Ecologies and Learning Laboratory (IDEALL)
IDEALL is a research laboratory developed for use by educational, learning sciences, and educational technology researchers both in the College of Education and from the wider campus research community. A highly configurable space, IDEALL is intended to facilitate investigations of cutting-edge, technology-enhanced learning environments in both formal and informal learning settings, and across the life-span. The Lab offers state-of-the-art 360-degree video and audio capture, a highly configurable lighting system, projectable surfaces and associated projection infrastructure in every dimension, a pull-out interview room, an observation center with one-way mirror, and more. The Lab is ideal for setting up, and capturing, learner interactions with state-of-the-art digital learning environments, including virtual and augmented realities, multi-touch surfaces for collaborative learning, and educational games, among other platforms.
Please join us to explore the capabilities and affordances of the Lab. Demonstrations of capacity and use will be offered, with opportunities to connect with researchers who are putting the Lab to use.
A detailed schedule will follow shortly.
