Socially shared regulation of complex learning process in groups (SHARP)

The Academy of Finland funded SHARP project aims to research socially shared regulation in collaborative learning groups. through the analysis of its unique multimodal dataset, it complements the current understanding of how people learn alone and with others. The methods and tools used are based on LA’s potential to trace and model learning processes and make them visible.

Project description

The aim of SHARP is to research socially shared regulation (SSRL) in collaborative learning groups and develop solutions to support groups' regulation. Exploratory and intervention research was conducted among high school students (N=82). We target trigger regulation situations in collaboration with the help of multimodal methods (i.e., 360°video, log data, heart rate, skin conductivity, self-report) and make invisible mental cognitive, motivational, and emotional learning processes visible for learners and teachers to allow them to regulate those processes and learn more efficiently. The methods and tools used are based on learning analytics potential to trace and model learning processes. As a multidisciplinary project, SHARP enables a significant scientific breakthrough in understanding laming as its unique multimodal dataset complements the current understanding of how people learn. It brings completely new technological solutions, digital tools, and learning process data (e.g. for AI) for increasing human competence building and preparing young people to meet future demands.
