Speech Recognition in the Classroom

I thought I would share this paper I’ve put together on an experimental project that uses speech recognition in the classroom. Enjoy!

Using Speech Recognition Technology in the Classroom: An Experiment in Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning

This paper will report on a design and development project that aims to enrich face-to-face classroom contexts using the latest developments in information and communications technology. The Meety project, when used by students in a classroom with laptop computers, captures the verbal utterances of the classroom context and uses it to supply real-time information resources to the students in the classroom. Students have the option of contributing to the information resources and rating the utility of the resources supplied. This project discusses the design and development of the project as well as a simulated trial to test its efficacy.
